More Christmas Pictures

Helping Jacob open a present from his grandma.

Another Santa Suit Photo.

Matt opening Jacob's new Video Recorder. I will try to post some videos from his new camera later,

Trip to NC

Our trip to NC was wonderful. We left Friday night to drive part of the way. Jacob slept for well over 300 miles. We ran out of gas before he needed to stop (Mom & Dad wanted to stop but didn't want to wake Jacob) We spent the night on the VA/WVA border. The pack and play was at the back of the trunk and the hotel was out of cribs so Jacob slept in a drawer on the floor. (Picture was taken with my cell phone)

We went to Charlotte on Saturday so Matt could hang out with one of his friends and watch the Panthers game. Jacob and I went to Poppy's house for the night.

Sunday- we went to Asheboro to visit Grandma. This picture was taken on Christmas Eve and as you can tell Jacob (& Dad) were not too excited about getting Jacob all dressed up in his Santa Suite that Grandma bought.

Christmas morning- Jacob had a great time opening present (with help of course) and enjoyed Daddy being silly putting a bow on his head.

Chirstmas Afternoon- We went back to Charlotte to spend a few more days with Poppy. Poppy is showing off the sweatshirt that Jacob got him for Christmas. We also got to see a few of my friends who were also in town.

Thursday we left Charlotte to head to Winston Salem to see Grandpa George and a few more of Matt's Friends before heading home yesterday.

The trip home was good but not as great as the one down there. Overall, Jacob did great considering we dragged him over 1600 miles in a week's time. He got to meet a ton of new people. (more pictures to come)

Jacob's First Christmas

Yes we know that Christmas is not until Tuesday but since we are leaving for NC, we had Christmas at our house tonight. (Jacob didn't seem to mind having it early)

Jacob got a few cool toys to play with and a new stuffed animal. (Thanks Uncle Matt)

Daddy enjoyed helping Jacob open his presents!

P.S. Mom and Dad got a few cool gifts too!!

Watch Me Grow- 1 month 3 days

1 Week 2 days

1 Month 3 Days
I could not get any pictures where Jacob had both legs straight. I can't believe how fast he is growing!!


Jacob has begun to smile. I've been trying to get one on camera but no luck. This is the closest that I have been able to get so far. His smiles are the BEST!!

The Summerell Men

We had a great visit with Grandpa over the weekend. He might plan his next visit without snow- but he did a good job helping shovel the driveway. Too bad I have not been cleared by the doctor to do anything physical yet!! I don't think this excuse will last all winter though!

Snoozing with Grandpa

Nothing better than snoozing with Grandpa!

Snowy Saturday

It's been snowing pretty hard for the last hour or so. What else is there to do on a snowy Saturday except take a nap on the couch. We are suposed to get a possible of 16 inches (Grandpa George- aren't you glad you came up from NC for the weekend?)
When is it my turn to take a nap? Jacob and I got up early while the boys slept in.

Jacob's new ride

Jacob got a new mode of transportation today. We briefly tested it out and he seemed to like it. We are VERY happy to get the new carrier as we don't want to (and don't have room) haul the stroller to NC with us for Christmas and wanted to have an alternate way to carry Jacob if we go out and about while we are there. Now I just need to practice getting him in/out of it.

Here Comes Santa Clause!!

We went to the mall today to have Jacob's picture taken and guess who we ran into? Santa Clause!! Jacob sat on his lap very briefly. He managed to scream so that the entire mall could hear him (luckly the first set of photos didn't come out) but in the end we got him calmed down and got a cute photo for his First Christmas.

His 3-Week pictures came out good- We will get them back on Dec. 21st!

3 Week Check Up

Jacob is growing like a weed! He had his 3 week check up this morning.

6 Days
Length: 20.9 inches
Weight: 8lbs 1 oz
Head Circumference: 14 1/4 inches

3 Weeks
Length: 22.5 inches
Weight: 9lbs 9 oz
Head Circumference: 15 inches

I knew that he had gained weight in the last two weeks because his clothes are fitting better now... but 1lb 8oz...geez!! There are no concerns that he is getting enough to eat!

The doctor said that he is looking good and his strength/mussle tone is excellent. He did have a bit of thrush in is mouth so he got his tounge painted purple today to help clear that up.

First Snow

Jacob got to experience his first snow today. We had a check-up this morning so we had to go out in the mess. Jacob was so bundled up that I don't think he even realized that it was snowing. It has been snowing all night and is supposed to continue until this afternoon!

My Sweet Boy

Such a sweet boy!!

Friday night, Mom and Dad watched a movie. Jacob and Mom cuddled on the couch all night. It was great.
