Jacob Turns 8!

Happy Birthday to our sweet, cute, witty young man. Determination and strength of spirit are two very dominate parts of his personality. He can be strong willed and at times very stubborn, but it shows that he can be driven when he truly believes he needs to be.
He has a warrior's heart, but can be a very soft-hearted and gentle spirit that looks out for those smaller than him and is a very sweet boy.

He is always ready to find something new to investigate, discover and learn; active and adventurous, loves to explore. He is always ready with a new and imaginative story or joke and can't wait to make a new friend where ever he goes.  

Happy Birthday my sweet little man! May you continue to grow in your convictions; may your will and determination
continue to guide you in the right direction with strength and steadfast spirit that keeps you on your path through life. 

Love you always!

Happy Birthday to my bright eyed adventurer.
We have had ten non-stop action packed years with this guy. Always on the go and ready to find that next exploration. He has definitely kept us on our toes. He could climb before he could walk and was always finding new and exciting ways to keep life interesting.
At 10 months he wiggled out of his strapped car seat to lean over and tell me hello. At two he climbed the tennis court fence at our apartment, climbed all the way up threw a leg over and went down the other side. Now we are likely to find him high up in a tree, trying to figure out how to build something, put up a shelter or fort of some sort, off on a bike, hiking through the woods, knee deep in a mud puddle, wading in a pond, collecting interesting things, or playing with an animal, or trying to catch some kind of animal or critter.
I love this tender-hearted, curious, adventurous, mischievous, high-spirited kid.  He has a sweetness and always thinking of others around him and willing to lend a hand, but always trying to surprise you and catch you off guard.
