The Micah-monster strikes again!
Jacob is on his way to walking!
We had a smooth week, all things considered. We all survived Daddy's absence and were pleasantly surprised when he got to come home a day early! We spent time outside enjoying the beautiful weather we had this weekend. Jacob is busy cutting a new tooth on the bottom (still none on the top!). I took this video yesterday afternoon when the boys were playing together on the floor in the living room. I think they laugh in a similar way when they get all keyed up :-) Now that Jacob can move, he is constantly trying to pull up on anything and everything, especially if it means access to some of Micah's blocks. They are colorful, they a make a clicky noise and they are chewable. What more could he want? In the picture above, he is pulling up on an overturned plastic bin to reach the blue block sitting on the ground behind it. I think we're going to need a gate or something soon because a lot of these are too small for him to get his hands on safely. Bring out the jumbo blocks! Jacob is 9 months now. That is the same age Micah was when we moved to Arkansas. It's hard to imagine we've been here that long. Funny story from this week: We all know how abstract concepts are hard for little ones to grasp. At school, they are learning about the parts of the body, so Micah knows where the heart is and that we listen to it with a stethoscope, etc. We also talked with him about how Jesus can live in our hearts. Well, Micah and Dan were discussing this. Then they were horsing around and Micah had his hands around Dan's chest. He said, "Am I squishing Jesus?" What do you say to that? I think we just reassured him that Jesus was safe in there :-) I guess we are going to try a different approach to explaining what the heart is and what the "heart" is :-)
