Rain Man

Jacob is so full of life! He is so much fun to watch and talk to these days, and I'm working very hard to savor every moment! Yesterday morning he woke up and came running out of his room. He found me in the kitchen and told me, "Hi Mommy! Hi Mommy!" Then he ran into the living room, stopped in front of the TV, and did a little jig (the TV was off and there wasn't any music playing through the house). It was too cute, and I knew that it was a moment just for me; no time for a video camera and no chance of getting him to do it again. He and Brian have gone outside to wave goodbye to me just about every day this week! It's so sweet! This morning he added in, "I love you Truck! I love you Mommy!"

Yesterday morning Andrew waited until Brian loaded him in the carseat to completely let loose in his diaper. Brian said there was poop EVERYWHERE! He told me last night "That diaper never had a chance." Anyway, he has to dress nicely (slacks, shirt and tie) for work, so he put on latex gloves to clean Andrew's mess. He's done this once before, and Jacob talked about how he was scared of Daddy's gloves for about a month. But yesterday morning Jacob got a sock and put it on his hand to help Daddy clean Andrew's mess. Brian said he was really cute! He said that after everything was cleaned up, Jacob went to the carseat and was wiping it with his little socked hand.

Lately he has reminded me of Rain Man when he talks. If something is out of place, he begins his sentence with Uh-Oh! "Uh-oh, Daddy's sock." "Uh-oh, Jacob's towel." He's so particular about that stuff.

His favorite movie right now is Toy Story. He loves the song "Here We Go Looby Loo," so when you ask him what day it is he'll say Saturday.
