He Rolled Over

Yesterday Jacob rolled over for the first time. He's getting so big! I cried the other day when I thought about the "What if Jacob was my last baby? Never again to carry a baby inside of me. Never again to experience the birth of another child.". I don't think I'm ready to be done.

However, since they do grow so very fast, I am preserving his tiny days. Lately, Jacob has begun talking and "singing". He's just so funny and animated.

What A Great Week

We had our two Thanksgivings this week. There is so much to be thanful for. I have my amazing husband, who puts up with me, and my seven darling children.

We spent Thursday with Brent's mother, father, and grandmother. Poor Abby was not feeling well, and didn't eat more than a couple bites. Brent and I cooked the turkey, noodles, cranberry sauce, rolls, and green bean casserole. His mom made the Waldorf Salad an several pies. It was a lot of fun.

Saturday, we spent the day with my mom, dad, brother, sister, and two of my nephews. We had the same meal, except I made a chocolate cheesecake. Abby was feeling better and snacked on a roll, but Sadie was sick. Little Jacob was sick on Friday. It looks like we have a stomach bug making it's way around.

The highlight of the day had to have been with Bekah. It was really pretty gross. I pulled a chunk of ear wax out of Jacob's ear. I told Moses to put it in the trash, but he was too grossed out. Brent said to have Bekah do it. I called her over and put the dried ear wax in her hand, telling her to throw it away. She looked at it, disgusted, and tried to shake it off her hand. When it didn't come off, she ate it!!! Brent, my dad, my sister and I all yelled! We were all cracking up! I was laughing so hard I cried!!! So icky!
