We should have driven to Raleigh for Dylan's 3rd Birthday party but we ended up staying home so Jacob could rest. We were sad we were not able to attend the party!!
While seeing the doctor, she checked his ears. She looked at his left ear 3 or 4 times then told us we need to call the ENT on Monday to have him checked out. Something didn't look right with his ear/tube. She thought it might be a blood clot or it could just be wax (she really didn't think it was wax). Hopefully the ENT can get us in early this week.
We did get our Christmas tree up this weekend. Jacob was a great help. He didn't want to help put ornaments on the tree but he did help unpack them and hand them to us to hang on the tree. None have been broken so far!! We did have a mishap when putting the candles in the windows... but I needed new ones anyway!!
Jacob is doing a good job helping out around the house with "chores". He has mastered feeding the cats and loading/unloading the washer/dryer. Now If I can only get him to actually fold the clothes. I do appreciate him being able to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer all by himself.
Feeding the cats: He goes to the pantry to get the food container (needs help opening it), moves it to where the bowl is, scoops out the food, then picks up any pieces he dropped, and returns the container to the closet.
Now if I could just get him to clean up the dust bunnies I see on the floor in this picture!!

We went to the Nature Museum today and the news was there filming a story about the visiting Turkey. Jacob made the news!! I was hoping they would put the story on line so I could get a better video but it is not on there so I had to video tape it from TV.

Weight- 25.6 lbs (20%)
Height- 34 inches (40%)
Head Width- 20 inches (94%)
The doctor said everything looks good. He got 2 shots and the nasal mist flu vaccine. He did very good for all 3. He cried briefly for the shots but then jumped down and was happy when we left.

Jacob is learning so much every day. He knows his colors and is doing well counting. He is putting more and more words together each day. The amount he is talking surprises me every day. His manners are impressive, he always says please and thank you... he shares his toys and is very caring.
He has such a fun personality and loves to play outside. We are so happy to be living so close to the Grandparents and thankful that Jacob gets to spend so much time with them.
We had a small party today with the family to celebrate his birthday.
