Muffin Tin Monday

Its Sunday which means its time for Muffin Tin Monday!

Today was kind of a boring Muffin Tin Monday but Jacob still loved it. We did a Muffin Tin Snack with some of his favorite snack foods.

Cookin' Away

Jacob has recently been very interested in cooking. He loves to help cook. He will go grab a chair from the kitchen table, move it over to wherever we are cooking, and ask to help. I love that he has this interest. Of course all he wants to cook is Noodles and Cheese but its a start. Maybe we will have a professional chef in the future. :)
(the water he is stirring is on a burner that is not on, but he doesn't know that.)

Jacob's greatest milestone

The grandest moment in Jacob's life happened on the day he uttered the most celebrated word in all spoken languages.

We captured on video this milestone, in all its glory, to be replayed one day on a warm May afternoon in Lawrence:

Friday night lights

Jacob got his first live glimpse this weekend of football under the lights.

The three of us returned home from dinner Friday evening to the sounds of cheering, marching bands and loudspeaker announcements coming from a nearby high school.

"Football!" Jacob shouted.

He's been conditioned to associate these sounds with America's favorite sport from the many shortcuts through the school's parking lot while band members and football players practiced.

He was raring to go to the game.

So, I put the overzealous sports fan in the jogging stroller and we quickly made our way to the school. We got there just in time to see the home team score a touchdown.

I'm certain he fell asleep that night to dreams of thousands cheering his name in the end zone.

Add midway rides to Jacob's list of favorite things.

We spent most of the day Saturday at the Williamson County Fair. It was Williamson Medical Center's Employee and Family Appreciation Day. Everyone who attended received a free lunch and a wristband for unlimited rides.

Jacob rode rides more than a dozen times. What a way to experience your first fair.
