Sister time

Ivan had a great time with Jacob Saturday night. They were alone together for about 4 hours, they had some real guy bonding time. I went with my mom and my three sisters: Jenny, Heather, and Cami and we went to eat, and then we went to the general Relief Society broadcast. It was wonderful. I especially enjoyed President Uchdorf's talk about overcoming feelings of inadequacy, and serving others. Afterwards we came back to my home and had brownies and ice cream, one of my favorite desserts. Jacob thoroughly enjoyed having his aunts hear because they fed him ice cream, and he loved it. Heather, and Nick were down this week from Montana. It was great to see them. Jacob got his first helium balloon this week. The grocery store by us gives them to all the kids. Jacob was facinated with his balloon. Friday night we went to the Bountiful temple right about sunset and walked around outside and took pictures as a family it was a beautiful night. Jacob is trying to crawl. He gets up on hands and knees and "launches" but he usually lands on his face. He is still trying to get the hands and knees working together. Until next week....Jessica, Ivan, and Jacob

working with mommie

This week was great. I was able to tke Jacob to work with me 3 days this week. We had a conference at the Homestead in Midway, Utah. I work with mostly women. We were at a conference on the state level so there were a couple hundred women there. Jacob loves women because they talk to him and say cute things. So needless to say he really enjoyed his time with me. I brought his baby food the first day, but he was more interested in eating what was on my plate that the pureed stuff. So he got to try a lot of new foods, fruits, veggies, bread, pasta crackers. Yesterday we went to Sugarhouse park to go running. I went for about 3 miles. I think it requires a lot more energy to run pushing a jogging stroller than it does to run alone, but it more the run more interesting too. Jacob loves the ducks at sugarhouse park. I took him there on another occasion this week and we fed the ducks and he laughed and laughed at the funny noises they were making. Needless to say this week went pretty well. We entered Jacob in a photo contest too, just for fun. Well, thanks for reading and until next week.

BYU game

This week Jacob turned 7 months old. He is a happy bundle of Joy. He loves playing with his dumptruck. We put all the blocks in the back and he quickly dumps it out. He loves playing peek a boo. If I hide around the corner and jump out at him he will giggle, and giggle. He now likes broccoli and applesauce, and goldfish crackers. This week we took him to an awesome BYU game. BYU won 59 to 0 against UCLA. It was a great game.

We also took our first pictures of him sitting up in the bath tub. Last week he still needed support sitting up and now just a week later he enjoys sitting just about anywhere. He scoots too. Here are some fun pictures from this week.

Today was our stake conference. President Monson spoke along with Elder Ballard and 2 other general authorities. It is wonderful to have a prophet that leads and guides us in these latter-days. It was a wonderful conference the talks were centered on strengthening the family, and following the Spirit. Thanks for reading. Have a great week.

Peach Days

We sure had a fun week! Jacob is starting to like many foods. He really likes Peaches we discovered yesterday. He also likes corn, bananas, and sweet potatoe. This weekend we went up to my parents house in Brigham for Peach Days. We has a lot of fun. We went down town and walked around to booths. We went to the art fair. We ate a lot of yummy foods. We ran into some old friends that we hadn't seen in a while. We got to see 4 of my 5 siblings.

We found out that Jacob loves our old family dog Jimmy. Every time Jimmy would come around him that's all Jacob could concentrate on. He laughed when Jimmy barked and had a good time playing with the dog. We went to the parade and Ben my brother was dressed up as McGruff. He took Jacob in his arms and I think Jacob thought it was a giant Jimmy dog. He loved it. Well it was a great week! Thanks for reading...until next time
