This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

One Year Old Today!!!

First birthday picture of Jacob. One year old today.


Arrival at Toys R Us for a shopping spree...

Happy Birthday Jakers!



We had a wonderful celebration two earlier at the Santa Ana Zoo, under a canopy of jungle plants.  Sadly, my oldest daughter was really ill with the flu, which developed into bronchitis, so she and her family could not make it.  We took lots of pictures to share with them however...

I can't believe that he is 1 already! That went by so fast! He is a cutie!

BTW, you asked me awhile ago about that header on my blog - the green bicycle. Yes, I took the photo. My sister decorated the bike.

Well. I just want to play with that little guy's hands in the bottom picture. He is... well. YOU know already, so now we get to know that Jacob is magic. His entire being is smiling. Lovely way to end my day, Donna.

What a nice way to celebrate a first birthday. The last picture is of a happy first year old. Sorry your older daughter was sick. Hope she is better now.

Happy birthday to Jacob. I'm so glad you got to be there.
Beck had the exact same "Birthday Boy" shirt for his birthday last week.

I thought I'd commented on this. Must not have done something or other. That bottom picture just GETS me. His beautiful little hands and that grin. Oh, Donna, what at treasure he is! I hope you had the best birthday party EVER. I've missed you and our blog world.

Cute photos and looks like a very fun 1st B/D. Too bad your daughter got so sick. Looks like you enjoyed your time with him. He sure is happy and what one year old would not be.
