Bite Marks

Jacob fell today at the sitters and he was upset. He was sitting on the sitters lap and a little girl who is about 18 months came over and said "I give him hug & kiss" so it was honest enough and the sitter didn't think much about it. She gave him a hug then planted one on his cheek. He didn't scream only made a whimper to clue in the sitter that the little girl had her teeth clinched into the side of his face. It didn't even seem to phase him. The sitter felt horrible and was apologizing as soon as I walked in the door.

See the teeth marks on his face.. Can't wait to see what it looks like tomorrow!!

Since daddy had a dinner for work tonight... we had pizza. Jacob loved it!!

1 year old check up

Jacob had his 1 year old check up yesterday. It was scheduled for last week but with him being sick the doctor wanted to wait until yesterday.

Weight- 20 lbs 12 oz
Height- 29.9 inches
Head- 19 inches

50th percentile in all areas.

He received 5 shots including the flu vaccine. We didn't get the HIB shot due to a national shortage and will have to make that one up.

Jacob also got Labs for a CBC and Lead and hopefully those will come out fine!

His ear was still not 100% but it should continue to heal and his throat was still irritated but his eating habits have picked up so she was not worried. She wants us to have his ear checked in 30 days once we are in Charlotte and discuss with our new doctor about a referral to an ENT due to 5 ear infections in 5 months.

We had a few snow flakes the other day but today was our real first snow of the winter. It has snowed just about all day. We didn't go out and play in it but we did watch it snow out the front door!!

Ear Infection

We have yet another ear infection! Jacob came home from the sitters at noon on Monday with a fever and after some Motrin he perked up. Monday night was horrible with very little sleep for Jacob or Mommy so we went to the doctor yesterday. And he has yet another ear infection. We started antibiotics yesterday and he seemed to be much better this morning. He slept better last night than the last 2 nights.

No fever over night or this morning so he went back to the sitters today and hopefully he continues to do well!

On another note.... The movers start packing us 2 weeks from yesterday!!

The house is ours!!

Jacob and I flew down to Charlotte on Monday night and Matt drove up from Atlanta to meet us. We had a great trip down. Jacob fell asleep on the plane, woke up briefly to see dad at the airport then slept until Tuesday morning.

Tuesday we went and interviewed 2 sitters. The first one was over fairly quick when she told us we didn't need to worry about Milk becaue she was on WIC and they gave her plenty. Moving on... We met a great lady that will be keeping Jacob starting on December 1st.

We finally closed on the house after a HORRIBLE experience with the Loan People. Closing was scheduled for 4 pm and we FINALLY received our final $ number at 4:20 pm (and it was wrong) and were given the keys to our new house!! We were SO excited to finally be done with the loan experience and go see our new house!! We get to the house and guess what... the key's DON'T work!! But the builder had left the door unlocked (gee thanks!!) so we locked it up- left the keys in the house for the builder and went out through the garage...

Matt went back to GA and Jacob and I flew home this morning! We can't wait to get Keys that work to our house and get moved!! 3 more weeks!! Matt will be home this weekend until we move!!

Jacob was worn out after being drug around town meeting new people...

Hanging out with Mom!!

Waiting in the airport for our flight home!!

Poppy got to walk us to the gate to spend a few extra minutes with Jacob!!
