One Year Old!

Where did the year go?? I was reminded that the day before I had Jacob, I was tieing a quilt at the canyon with Ryan's family!
Jacob is such a fun and sweet baby! He has gone through alot.. being born 5 weeks early, with pnemonia and in the hospital for a week, getting sick with colds, and now ear infections..
At the same time, our family is so blessed to have him! The Lord has truly blessed us with beautiful children!
Ryan and I had close family members over at our house for cake and ice cream, and we got to sit out on the lawn and patio cause there wasn't quite enough seats for everyone to be inside.
Jake opened presents and got alot of toys, and then we had cake and Ice cream. We lit the candles that said"happy birthday" and we sang to him, and my mom had the cake just in the perfect reach of jake, and he smeared his hand in the cake! After getting his hands in the 4" inch cake that was his, he had frosting all over his hair, up his nose... and he had it EVERYWHERE! It was fun to watch him get into it though.
New things that he is doing:
*crawls and army crawls perfectly

*stands and hangs on to furniture.

*scoots along furniture.

*Loves to play with Hunter

*gets into everything!

We love you Jacob! Happy 1st Birthday!

ok.... I know that i'm really behind on updating this silly thing, but life has been so crazy! First of all, we found out by going to the doctor that Jacob had his 2nd double ear infection 3 weeks ago so the doc. persribed a Omnicef (a strong medicine) and he to take that for 10 days. Well... on the 9th day, he was just not looking good and he was fussy and not sleeping very well. So, my mother intuition sent me to the doc again... his left ear has cleared up, but the right ear was severely infected. The doctor said that since the meds were not working completely, that maybe the shots would work. He had to have Rociphin shots for 3 days. My sweet mother in law took me cause we only have one car, and it's also nice to have her help with the kids. The weekend went by and by monday, he was still screaming and pulling on his ears! So... I called the nurse and told her what was going on, and she said " well.. you should probably come in again and have his ears checked cause if he still has an ear infection, then he will need to see a specialist! At this point, I was overwhelmed and was having flash backs of when Hunter had tubes in his ears and then paying for the bill! NOT fun. It seemed that it took forever to pay off!

Anyway... so I called the specialists' office and told the receptionist that we needed to get in right away. She said "the doctor won't be in all week", our next available opening is at 1:30. Well.. it was only 11:30 at the time, we didn't want to go back and forth from American Fork to Springville, so we waited and come to find out when I went to sign in, the receptionist said that our insurance wouldn't pay for 2 appointments in the same day, so we had to reschedule for the next morning.

Tuesday morning, at 10 a.m. we went back to the ENT doc. and he was mostly concerned if there was fluid in the back of his ear drum... and checked them and said that they were clear!!

So Ryan and I have had basically no sleep for the last 2-3 weeks from Jacob being sick and he used to be with Hunter in our recent apartment.

July 20th... things are alot better and Jacob is over his ear infection! We'll see what happens within a couple of months if he gets another infection..

Hunter is doing well with the potty training. He goes in the morning when he wakes up and then it's hit and miss from there.

Everything is going well... this is it for now. Here are some pictures..
