At twenty months, Jacob is a bright, happy toddler boy and loves all things b-o-y! He is obsessed with backhoes, lawn mowers, and weed eaters. He loves to "read" books. He is becoming a good eater and will tackle just about whatever we present to him--current favorites include pomegranate and pears. New words arrive almost daily. Some of his current word obsessions:
- Gee, ga, GO = Ready, Set, GO!
- Gee Goo = Thank You
- Hoe = Backhoe
- Bop = Bob the Builder or Bob the Tomato
- Didl, didl, didl = Cookie
- Ninl, ninl, ninl = Again, or yes, what you are saying is correct!
- Schoosh = Truck
- Mull = Milk
- Ma Mow = Lawn Mower
- Wee Wee = Weed Eater
He waits at the window eagerly awaiting his Maw Maw Burris to arrive on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and truly believes his Maw Maw Ruth resides in the computer on the web cam. He can remember places he has been and points out the place we go to feed "guckies" and will tell me Maw Maw takes him to the library for story time. He still hates to go to church, but loves to participate in Family Worship at home. The current favorite praise song is "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy down in my heart. Where?! Down in my heart...." He loves any song with a catchy tune and especially those with hand motions! Jacob is an outstanding hug giver and has even begun to "pat" me on the back when giving hugs. Kisses are generally abundant as well and he has even begun offering unsolicited hugs and kisses, which, in my opinion, are the best kind.
Jacob is our pride and joy. Twenty months ago we brought a tiny little bundle into this world and somehow, that little "blob" of joy, has turned into a vivacious, energetic, happy boy filled to the brim with personality. We love him, oh so much!
Today you are 20 months old. Mommy and Daddy don't have the words to tell you how much we love and adore you. You make our hearts sing and our mouths rejoice in praise to God for the gift He gave us in you.
You are a good boy and you are so precious to us! We love you!
Mommy and Daddy
