What a wonderful, new, eye-opening ride it has been since Baby Sister Jena joined us 7 months ago. Jacob seems so much bigger now...and older. Which he is...but also still such a little one at heart. He shows his sister such a huge amount of love: calls her Princess Kitty when she wakes in the morning, is always sure to give her a hug and kiss before bed, has "taught" her how to play piano and drums and loves to make her laugh. He is learning the art of trading, when he wants what she has and he needs to replace it so she doesn't cry! Of course, he has asked if she can go back inside my belly and if he can also have milk but he also shows her so much affection and love. They have gone to the fair, to Florida, strawberry picking, swimming, to the playground, played putt-putt, watched Uncle John graduate from high school, played baseball every week....it's been a busy summer! And now we are moving into a new house. Jacob is so excited! His room has been painted yellow - at his request. He has also asked for a race car rug - we'll see!
