Picture This

Jacob drew a picture for me today and hung it on my bedroom wall (with a thumb tack). He told me, "Mom, this is so you will always know I love you." He certainly can be so kind. Jake then went on to tell me, "I love your husband, too." HA!

Last night Joshua told Jacob, "Jacob, I LOVE YOU when you draw me in your pictures." Willie and I gave each other a "Oh, how sweet!" look. Jacob was completely silent. I was trying to coax him into a brotherly, "I love you too," and said, "Jacob, what do you say to someone when they say they love you?" He looked and Josh and said, "Thanks." What a crack up!

Nathan had a rough and whiny day today and at one point when Jake wanted something but I was tending to Mr. Teething (I hope that's what his problem is), Jacob said, "Mom, can't you just put Nathan away and come play with us?" I'm not quite sure what he had in mind with this one!

And last but not least Jacob answered the phone today with a not-so-friendly, "Who the HECK are you? This is Jacob. Who the HECK are you?" I was helplessly nursing on the couch and wanted to curl up and die. Luckily when I finally got the phone, my sister was laughing on the other end. That could have been really embarrassing if it hadn't been someone so understanding.

They always keep me laughing!

How old is Jacob? I'd swear he was a 90 year old man in a 4 year old's body. Thank goodness Cynthia has a good sense of humor. Wow!
