My little inventor, he always has a project going. He can usually turn a piece of trash into a cool craft or toy. He loves folding paper...from origami to paper airplanes. Jacob is a fisherman..from catching fish, to organizing his tackle box, scavenging for baits along a body of water, and reading every magazine he can find on the subject..this is what he does. He loves to play baseball, shoot, and count his money.
Jacob, is a great helper, curious about everything and good, he is truly a good person. He has a sharp mind, is a quick thinker, quite-natured, fair-minded. He wants to help, likes to see a job finished. He is super competitive, sometimes I don't know if he even likes what he is playing or just wants to win, he practices constantly and always has a ball in his hands.
If there is a 5 year old version of a Momma...Julia would be it, always trying to be like me. She always knows what is going on, wants to take care of the little ones (she is sometimes bossy), she knows how to clean a room, and where things are at. She is super sensitive, sweet, and loving. Julia is my kid that can motivate herself, give her a goal to accomplish and she will do it. We told her she was going to learn to swim this last summer, she fought it for a week, then said I am ready...and accomplished her goal. She wanted to learn to whistle, practiced and now can whistle a tune. She is always wanting to make herself better and learn new things.She likes ballet, tap, and swimming. She stared Kindergarten this year and is doing great.
Our new little player, he is a sweet, easy little boy. He nurses and sleeps well, has started to laugh and baby talk and looks around at everything. And he is oh so loved.
We are all so crazy about him, especially the older four. John and Jacob are great,experienced big brothers. They can really care for him and soothe his needs. Julia is learning, how to hold him correctly, she is great about just holding him whenever and he prefers her when I am not able to hold him. He sleeps in her arms, where as with everyone else he is usually excited to see there faces, she comforts him. Jillian thinks Jett belongs to her, he is "her little brother" that is what she calls him. She sits beside him and sings and talks to him and he has amazement on his face.
