We certainly didn’t plan for this post to follow our previous post, but that’s how life goes. The weather is warmer, the sun is sunnier, and that means we are starting to head outdoors with Jacob. Yesterday we visited the park, where Jacob enjoyed swinging and also sliding down the slide with Erin. He is kind of quiet when we are outside, but we realized he is looking at all of the exciting, new things.
Jacob is much more vocal when he is indoors. He loves to scream and squeal to get our attention, and he will imitate sounds that we make. He loves to smile (and drool), and he has learned how to sit up on his own! He can balance himself with his hand, but still tips over when he stretches to grab whatever is within a few inches of his reach.
We visited some relatives in Phoenix a few weeks ago. It was great to get away and spend some time in warmer weather. Jacob was introduced to dogs, and he liked them, but not as much as the dogs liked him. Tessa would follow around the person that was holding Jacob, and when we went into our bedroom, she would wait outside the door and scratch at it. On a couple of occasions we had Jacob on the ground to change his diaper, and Tessa would sneak up and lick his hand or face.
We had a wonderful time with Debbie. Thanks for hosting us!
Speaking of friends, Jacob has one in his cousin Benson. They hang out regularly and show off their style.
