I have the best job in the world, I get to stay home with Jacob every day and have watched him grow from my little baby into a wonderful little boy. I am in awe of him each and every moment. His smile is heart warming, his laugh is infectious, and when he looks at me with his big blue eyes, I can’t help but smile and think of how lucky I am.
My favorite time of day with Jacob is in the morning, he wakes up with a glowing smile and showers me with hugs and kisses. He is my cuddle bug for a few moments before he turns into my independent little boy. I love listening to Jacob chatting all day long, whether it’s with me or with his toys, it puts a smile on my face. He continues to surprise me every day with new things.
This past year has been the most incredible year of my life; I am so blessed to have a wonderful and supportive husband and a son who I adore. I look forward to the years to come.
I Love You Munchkin!

He keeps blowing that thing in my face!
Ha! Take that!
Thank you to everyone! We had such a great time and we are happy to share this moment with all of you.
Smash Cake Time!!!
Jacob was very conservative in the beginning, he kept taking a little bit of frosting and then looking around for Nate and I. I think he was waiting for someone to take the cake away from him - he got over it after awhile.
Starting to get messy...
What? You put this thing in front of me!
Hey, this is fun - can we do this everyday?!?
Would you like some?
Sharing with Amy
I think Jacob put a pretty good dent in his first birthday cake. Next stop - the bathtub!
Whitney chillin' on the couch - "Hey, why didn't I get any cake?!?"Oh, man! These girls are back again, are we keeping them this time?
Proud Uncle Nathan
On Jacob's real birthday-day, Nathan, my mom, Darel and I took him out to dinner at St. Cloud's in Seattle. It was a great restaurant, excellent food and they were great with Jacob. He enjoyed every minute of all the attention he was getting. We ordered Jacob his first meal off a restaurant menu - mac n' cheese. Yum-Yum!
Very happy little boy... he ate every last bite of the ice cream sundae they brought him (with a candle in it and we all sung Happy Birthday).
Thank you everyone for making this a wonderful first birthday for Jacob, we couldn't ask for anything more. (Jacob made the sign today).
Happy Birthday Jacob!
