More celebrations since our last post. 
We had another baby shower and Jacob was the guest of honor!  Jacob attended his third Tacoma Rainiers game and we enjoyed their annual 3rd of July fireworks extravaganza.  On the 4th of July, we celebrated with some friends who live near the waterfront in Tacoma.  We watched the fireworks from their lawn, all bundled up.  Jacob slept through both big bang events. (Look at his chubby cheeks!)

The 5th of July was Matt's birthday.  We had a great party and the sun came out just in time for the "Birthday Olympics" which include events involving stacking ding dongs on your forehead, fishing with gummi worms, a tug o war, and trivia questions.  My favorite event was called "face the cookie" which required players to get an oreo cookie from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands.  We finished off the evening with delicious BBQ chipotle burgers and lemon cream cheese cake.  

Jacob had another follow-up appointment today where they did some developmental screening as well.  He's still very young, so there's not much to look for right now.  They did recommend some physical therapy to help with head control and neck strength.  It's good to know there are so many folks looking out for him.  He's up to 12 lbs 11oz--getting bigger every day!  He's just starting to smile and discover that his hands belong to him.  You have to be quick on the shutter to capture those smiles on camera, but we know that there are many more to come. 

Annie will be going back to work in the next week.  Please pray for her as she returns to the overwhelming mountain of email and catches up with her staff and co-workers. 

We love hearing how many of you are following us on our blog.  We love comments too, so don't be shy. 
Enjoy the sunshine, now that it has finally arrived in Western WA!
