Introducing Beau Stafford!!

My cousins Annie and Trey had their first son, Beau, at the end of April. We are so excited for Jacob and Beau to grow up and be able to play together. We went to houston and was able to finally meet Beau. Jacob has never been around a little baby, but he did really well.

happy 4th of July!

The three of us enjoyed a wonderful evening on July 3rd at Lee Victory Park in Smyrna. We had so much fun eating watermelon, walking around the field, hanging out in the back of the truck. Jacob enjoyed playing ball with the other kids. He didnt understand to kick the soccer ball but he picked the ball up to give it back to the kids and then ran after it when it was kicked. It was too cute. At 9, we watched a great firework show and Jacob absolutely loved it. He sat very nicely in my lap for the first 5 minutes and then got up to watch it standing up. I am so glad he liked the fireworkS!

An important message from Jacob Lee Karlin

I replay Jacob's "Hi!" all the time in my head while I'm daydreaming at work, and it always brings a smile to my face. It's really weird to hear his true voice. For the past few months he's been grunting, squealing and whispering under his breath in the form of "dada" and other consonant sounds. But those sounds, to me, are different from the word he just created through his finely-tuned vocal chords.

Can't wait to hear what comes through those high-pitch pipes next time. I hope it won't be anything inappropriate.
