Going to bed

Jacob has mastered climbing up the stairs. At night if he is ready for bed (before I put him in bed) he takes it upon himself to climb up the stairs to go to his bedroom.

Tonight... he climbed up and we put his jammies on. It was only 6:30 so I picked him up to go downstairs to play for a bit more and he shook his head and pointed to his bed. So we brushed his teeth and I put him in bed. Not a peep out of him.

He did a similar routine last week when I was out of town with Matt. Matt had forgotten to brush his teeth when he put him in the bed and he screamed until Matt realized and they brushed his teeth then he went straight to bed.

I think Jacob takes after me and likes to go to bed early. The only difference is I also like to sleep late!!

Walking...

Jacob has really started walking lately. He LOVES wearing shoes. He got mad at the sitter today when she tried to take them off for his nap. He ended up sleeping in his shoes!!

Open House

We had a great Open House yesterday in Ohio. We had 4 families show up. 3 of which showed to be very interested. One family had been in the house before we bought it so they could appreciate all we had done to the house. I believe they were the same ones... whose daughter and grandkids lived in the Neighborhood.

All in all... our agent was very happy with the turnout and hopefull that one of these could turn into an offer.

Bad News... the agent discovered we had a leaking pipe in the kitchen. Matt had her shut off the main water to the house and we have called a plumber. Our agent is going to meet the plumber out at the house to get the pipe fixed.

I'm glad that we had the open house yesterday so she could find the leaking pipe and was able to clean up the mess prior to it causing any damage.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that we have some true interest in the house and we get an offer soon!!

Jacob loved the slide!!

Super Bowl Sunday

We had a few friends over to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. We had a blast and I think the kids enjoyed themselves also.



Jacob was in heaven with all the attention, but I think Sarryn is a bit too old for him. He might be a better match for her baby sister who will be arriving in May/June...


Playing with Tad...


Jacob is really into reading books right now. He has a few favorites that we read every night several times.




Sarryn did such a great job playing with Jacob and helping him on Sunday. She is going to be a great big sister to the new baby.


Jacob even talked her into reading a book with him.

Tuesday afternoon

Jacob & I got to spend all afternoon today together. I didn't get much work done but we had fun. We first went out to lunch at the Mall then to the play area at the mall. He had a blast playing. Some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy but I only had my blackberry to take photos with.

He was getting ready to go down the slide.


Playing with the puzzle pieces hanging on the wall.



This car was by far his favorite item to play on. We had to take several turns sitting in it.


Waiting in line to sit in the car.
