Jacob in motion

While Erin and Jacob are on their whirlwind tour of Texas, I figured now would be a good time to clean out the video camera. All four of these videos are really cute and worth watching from start to finish, especially the third one.

If an object is sturdy, Jacob will climb on it. If an object's not sturdy, Jacob will climb on it. He pulls himself up on tables, couches, people, our dog, you name it. He's learned to grip our clothing to help anchor himself. Once he's upright, he stays that way until his little legs give out. And then he's right back up.

Jacob's showing early signs he'll be giving the heater to the big boys. He loves to throw things and knock down blocks. That's my boy.

This has become my favorite video. Not only can Jacob grab tiny Cheerios, he knows to put them in his mouth and chew. Well, I guess that latter part really isn't that grandeur of a talent considering he puts everything in his mouth. What's so amazing about this feat, though, is his ability to utilize fine motor skills to grab these minuscule objects. A lot of the time, though, he'll just paw at the objects with his chubby little hands, drag them to the edge of the tray and clasp them before falling to the ground, where Dolly sadly awaits.

Oh, and Erin's trained, er, taught Jacob to give high fives. It's so damn adorable, it'll slap you silly with a fistful of warm fuzzies.

This video focuses more on Dolly's skiddish reaction to a roomful of balloons, but you can see Jacob crawling around. We bought the balloons for a really cute New Year's photo, which will posted at that time.

a few cute pics

Jacob loves to crawl under things like his excersaucer.

Jacob's first art project.

8 months already!

Jacob is 8 months.
We are starting to babyproof the place. He is crawling EVERYWHERE and so fast. He also pulls up on everything. He is starting to walk around holding on furniture. I am sure he will be walking very soon. He still has only 2 bottom teeth but I think his two front top teeth will be showing up soon. Everything goes in his mouth and he just chews. He is drinking about 27-30 oz. of formula a day and about 4-5 tablespoons of pureed foods but he is also starting to enjoy finger foods as well. Jacob is growing up so fast right infront our eyes. We are looking forward to going to Dallas/Houston for 10 days.

Holy Teeth

Have I told you about Jacob's Teeth yet? WELLLL... Jacob has 2 teeth. Both came through in the month of November. They are his two front bottom teeth. Teething hasn't been too bad but he does have his moments of fussiness or waking up in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder. He chews on EVERYTHING. If he sees something, doesnt matter what it is, it goes straight into his mouth. He is not really into teething rings but he likes cold towels to chew on. He hates it when I try to look at his teet by pulling his bottom lip down but I tried really hard to take a pic of his teeth. Hopefully you can kind of see something.

baby day at the synagogue

Our Synagogue had baby day with the babies who will be a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in 2022. It was so much fun and Jacob was able to play with other babies his age. A song leader was there and we sang some songs. Enjoy the pics:
