We ventured over the river and through the snow to Grandmother's house (Annie's parents) on Thursday morning. They had about a foot of snow at their house in Port Angeles, but the worst part of the drive was going into their driveway. We made it with no problems and got right to cooking once we arrived. This year was a smaller group and we only had 2 turkeys, instead of the usual 3. Jacob joined us at the table, sitting in his new high chair and even tried some mashed potatoes. He really did not like them and spit them out right away. Annie's dad got him a new teething "toy" though--a silicone barrel stopper (aka bung). Jacob did enjoy that and it must feel good on his new teeth coming in.
Jacob is 7 months old today! He's doing so well after his surgery and now seems pretty much back to normal. He's getting stronger and able to sit up with minimal support. And he's just the happiest little guy we know.
We have so much to be thankful for this year! Here are just a few...
- Wonderful support from friends and family through prayer, provision of meals, babysitting, etc.
- An amazing little boy who has come through two major surgeries with flying colors
- A warm & dry house to live in
- A good job that keeps Annie busy
- A great church
