Mommy making him smile

Jacob officially hit 11 months old today. He spent the day at church, having lunch with mommy and daddy at Hof’s Hut, running around town with mommy and daddy, playing, and then Sunday dinner with family. He is slowly becoming more mobile (better late than never). His sense of wonder about his surroundings continues to grow. There are times when he prefers to be near us and in our arms and there are times when he is perfectly content just playing on his own … whether that be with his toys or with something like his foot.

He continues to make us laugh at the little things that he does. We enjoy seeing the world through his eyes, where everything is new and wondrous.

People can’t believe how old he is when we tell them. They say that he is so small. But he will grow at whatever rate he wants and be just as great as anyone else.

His 1st birthday quickly approaches and we still can’t believe how quickly time has passed. It seems like just a short time ago, I was staring at him for the first time while in the hospital. Every day, we see more and more of ourselves in him, yet he has his own distinct personality as well. He is such a big part of our lives. We almost forget what it was like not having him around.

And the best part of the whole experience is that we can tell that he loves us back. He is our little man and there isn’t anything that we would not do for him.
