Past Few Months

Life is good as Jacob continues to grow.  Recently he learned his colors (and he was so proud that he would bring different colored blocks to me and tell me what color they are).  He has finally moved into his correct age class at church on Sunday and loves his teachers and friends.  He also loves his class at CBS on Fridays and my husband and I have been able to take a few date nights in recent months (he loves the sitter we have - she is amazing).  It is hard to think that it has been 8 months since we brought him home.  He is an amazing little boy!

Easter has came and went again.  We did have our annual Easter Egg hunt for the 4th year on Good Friday and it was sweet to see Jacob hunting with the other kids (he loved it).  Jacob not only hunted, but he helped me put together the 800+ eggs we had to hide.  The kids also got to decorate eggs (which Jacob loved).  We also for the first time stayed home for Easter and went to a friend's house for Easter dinner and egg hunt.  It was a sweet time to let our kids play while us adults enjoyed visiting.  I hope this has started a new tradition for our family.

Jacob's US flag came.  Was so cool to have something he can look back on when he is grown (it actually flew over the US capitol on his finalization day and came with a certificate)!

Since finalization we have been waiting on his certificate of birth so we can finish up his adoption with a certificate of citizenship.  As you can tell from the pictures, that is what I'm doing while the kids are enjoying chalk art, soccer, and just having fun outside.  While we wait we have been planning our summer vacation and can't wait to head out in a few weeks for fun in the sun in FL.

Below are some pictures to enjoy (more to come soon)...
