happy birthday!

do these little boys look any different to you?

they are completely different to me.

the one on the left is a 1 year old (taken only yesterday)...the one on the right is a 2 year old!

my baby boy is 2 today! can you even believe it? it seems like yesterday i was holding him in my arms for the first time.

we went out to eat last night with jerry's dad. jacob is always well behaved at restaurants. he has the occasional testiness where he wants to get out of his highchair, but other than that, he just sits and enjoys the time.

this older lady was sitting across from us. she asked how old he was and i told her.

she said, "you've done an amazing job raising that boy!"

raising him? that made me so sad. to think, in a blink of an eye, he'll be 18, have a girlfriend, move out, go to college...before you know it, he'll be married and having kids of his grandchildren!

this is an emotional day.

and here's a look back at a year ago. incredible how he's changed!

happy birthday, to my sweet baby boy!

savor every moment, the single days do not go by so fast, but day you will turn around and he'll be a teen.
its hard to believe how fast they grow. you ought to bring him swimming today at the municipal pool. we will be there around 1.

Okay I have to admit I was confused for a minute. I hadn't scrolled down yet so I thought the first two pictures were of the different ages. I was like, he doesn't look that different to me...
Don't mind me...I'm at camp and I'm sleep deprived.
Happy Birthday Jacob!!!
