It started snowing late on Christmas evening!! We woke up to a winter wonderland!! It had stopped snowing when we woke up but started coming down again shortly after.

Jacob was so excited to go out and play in the snow this morning!! He wanted to make a snowman so he came outside armed with a carrot for his nose. He was going to use grapes for his eyes.

The snow was not good for snowman making...

so we ran and played in the snow instead!!

Jacob made a snow angel!!

We had a fun morning playing in the snow!!

Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful Christmas!! It was by far the best Christmas with Jacob so far!! Both my dad and Matt's dad joined us!! Jacob woke up to find that Santa had left a few presents under the tree.

After playing with all the toys under the tree, we finally hinted for him to look in the backyard!! His reaction was priceless!! He was thrilled and a bit surprised when he looked in the backyard. He jumped up and down and cheered with delight!!

Bundled up and going to check out his new swing set that Santa left in the backyard!!

The slide is so much fun!!

Daddy pushed him on the swings!!

Santa even left Jacob a stocking full of goodies!!
He even had chocolate before breakfast!! Later in the day, Poppy sat down on the couch and found a wad of candy wrappers hidden behind the pillow on the couch!! Sneaky little one!!

He watched the singing bears while we waited!

He even took a break to hang out with Micky on the bench.

3 year Checkup

We took Jacob last week for his 3 year checkup. He did great and did everything the doctor asked him to. His vision was 20/40- they indicated that they can't get most 3 year olds to read that far on the chart if even do it at all. So she was very happy with that.

Overall, he is completely healthy and smart!! They took blood from his finger to check his cholesterol, which he didn't like so much. He asked the nurse to put the blood back. They called before lunch that his cholestrol was normal. He also received 2 vaccines and he cried!

Height- 38 (60%)- up from 40% last year
Weight- 30.8 (50%)-up from 20% last year
BP- 88/56
Body Mass Index- 14.8 (10%)
