Andrew looks like such a little boy in his birthday pj's. (sniffle) My little baby's growin' up and looking more and more like Jake everyday. He loves his doggie! It's his favorite thing in the world. He likes to sleep with it, drag it around, hug it, shake it (it has a rattle inside), and BITE it. That's his way of showing love - I would know, because he likes to bite me and daddy. When I ask him where his doggie is, he knows exactly where it is and crawls to get it. Or if I'm holding him, he points at it and says 'da' or 'gi'. What a smart boy.
Wow! Time has really gone by fast! I can't believe Andrew is already one year. I swear, we just brought a little tiny baby boy home from the hospital the other day. At the same time, though, I can't really remember or imagine life before he joined our little family. He has brought so much joy to our lives. We had fun celebrating his birthday three times. On his birthday (Feb 22), Daddy had to work all day and night long, so mommy and mommys friend Angela had a little party for him. We had lunch at Angela's house! Andrew had a good time with baby Spencer(6 months). Actually, he just had fun grabbing at him, crawling on him, and playing with his toys. After lunch we had a cake for him. Since it was his first birthday cake. We were just going to let him dig into the whole thing, but decided we didn't want to clean up the aftermath - turned out being pretty messy anyway. Also, everyone else wanted to have some. At first he just picked daintily at the corners... but, once he discovered the frosting, he started ripping chunks out, at first just to eat, but soon found it was more fun to fling it around. Good boy! Saturday, Grandma Sandy had a birthday party for Grandpa Leonard (Feb 23), Aunt Tara(Feb 26), and Andrew combined. All the family went to Pizza Hut, then to Grandma and Grandpa Jensens for yummy chocolate cake and ice cream. So much fun! Andrew loved it! Sunday, it was Grandma and Grandpa Terry's turn. We had a yummy dinner, then once again chocolate cake and ice cream! - Can't have enough chocolate, right? Well, maybe Andrew can. He broke out in a rash that night. I'm not positive it's the chocolate - we're sure hoping it's not! Andrew got many fun presents! He loved them all! Thank you everybody for a good birthday weekend!
Andrew is getting big so fast! He wants to get into everything he can reach, and he can reach things you wouldn't think possible. He is climbing stairs now and whatever else he can pull himself up onto. Whenever we do the dishes, he is right there to help. However, at this point he usually just gets in the way. It's so much fun to watch him learn to do new things. What a wonderful child!
I am so done with having a cold... done with Andrew having a cold and watching him be so miserable.... done with not wanting to go outside because I hate the cold temperatures, snow, and icy roads. Jake keeps telling me he wants to move to St. George - I keep saying heck no, because it's way too hot. Right now I'm thinking it sounds like a great idea. (Ask me in a couple months when it warms up a bit, then I'll change my mind again.)
Happy anniversary to us on FEB 4th!! Jake and I have been married now for two years, and it's been WONDERFUL! We have had a lot of fun times and it seems we love each other more and more everyday! Lately, Jake has been very busy working, studying, and attending school. It was very nice to get a break on Monday. Grandmas Jean and Sandy helped with little Andrew. Jake took the day off of work, so we got some time to ourselves. It's been a LONG time since that's happened. It was very nice to have some time to spend together! Now it's back to work and school, but it was good while it lasted. I love my hubby SO MUCH! I'm glad I get him for eternity!
Jake and I were married February 4th 2006. We are just enjoying being alive. Life is great being married to your best friend.
Jake is attending law school in northern Idaho and has his bullet bussiness on the side with hopes of someday expanding. I am enjoying the life of a stay at home mommy! BUSY, yes, but what a fun experience. Every moment is precious with our little ones! They are growing up way too fast. Andrew and Grant have such fun and different personalities. We love our boys. Alexis is just what we needed for our third child while we are on this law school adventure. She is content and always so happy to just be loved. We feel so blessed with everything we have. We are a very happy family!
