Take me out to the ball game!

Hello friends!
We have been a busy family in the last few weeks.  Jacob has had several appointments in follow up from the neurologist and pediatrician, all with good news.  He passed his hearing test with flying colors.  The eye doctor said he might be a little far-sighted, but that's normal for his age.  He didn't pick things up in his field of vision right away, but that seems to be improving too. 

Today, Jacob started physical therapy.  The best part is that our friend from church is his therapist.   She had some good exercises for us to work on at home.  He is definitely behind the curve on his physical development.  But we are encouraged by the progress we've seen even in the last month. 

The most fun in the last few weeks has been seeing Jacob's personality begin to come out.  He is usually very happy and smiling.  And the best sound in the world is his laughter.  We're working on a better bedtime routine.  He likes being read to and is learning to play with toys a little bit. 

Last weekend, we went to 4 baseball games in a row!  The Tacoma Rainiers were in the playoffs, but our local Cheney Stadium is under construction, so all 3 games were played at Safeco Field in Seattle.  We had great seats, 2 rows behind home plate.  Then on Monday, Auntie Joy gave us tickets to see the Mariners vs. the Red Sox.  The Rainiers finally won the championship, but the Mariners lost.  We've seen our fill of baseball for the summer now!  On to the wonders of Fall. 

We are excited to celebrate his 5 month birthday soon.  Wow!  Where has the time gone?  Jacob is getting so big!
