Hope all is well.
I just celebrated my 52nd birthday.
The best present of course is that we now have Jacob, he is such a blessing. He's so loving and full of like and joy. I can't tell you how wonderful it is having him. My husband and I often talk of how much more alive our home is now. Keep in mind that our baby girl is now 31 years old, so it's been awhile since we've changed diapers and stayed up all night with a teething baby. (If anyone has any advise for new moms please feel free to send it my way.)
I love playing with Jacob and seeing that beautiful smile of his. His dad brought him home a huge red ball yesterday and he had a blast with it. I tried for about 30 minutes to get a picture of him with the ball but mostly I got pictures of the ball and Jacobs legs. He's definitely not a camera hound.
Our plans were to retire early and travel. I love crusies!!!! I'm talking LOVE. We went to the Bahamas before Jacob was born and it was the most awesome time ever. I felt like a kid again. We've been a lot of places but still had more on our list to see. Now we will wait and see those places with Jacob.
You can probably tell that Jacob has become my life. He's what my world revolves around now. There are so many things I can't wait to share with him. He's got these big old adorable eyes with long lashes that just sparkle when he laughs and I love to see him having fun and laughing. Like I said at the beginning he's the BEST thing that's happened to us in a long time. the BEST birthday present.
