A couple of weeks ago we celebrated my mom's birthday. Here is mom with her favorite grandson before his bedtime.
There's a nice old man that runs a pumpkin patch out of his front yard on the road to our house. We went there and took some pictures of little man with the pumpkins. After all, being born on October 31st Jacob is a pumpkin himself.
The next couple of pictures were taken before going to Grammy and Papa Doc's for a sleepover. I was trying to get Jacob's food together.
He decided to help me pack the cooler
It was FULL of ice and he thought it was so fun to stick his hands in there. Go figure!!!!
This boy hearts his grandparents in a major way.
Riding his toy
Why he likes to crawl inside his toy box I have no clue. Super duper cute though!!
The weather was so nice last week that we took our first ever trip to the zoo. Boy did Jacob have a blast. It was even better because J's aunt Jayme joined us for the fun.
This is the meercat that Jacob had a staring contest with
Fascinated by the animals
Watching the zebras. They came up really close

This was by far the funnest thing of the day. Jacob had the best time crawling everywhere and falling on the mats. We could have stayed forever except for that darn thing called a nap. :)
This past weekend we took a trip to South Carolina to visit my grandmother and the rest of the family. Jared, my mom, Jacob, and I went down on Thursday and then my dad came down Saturday afternoon. Here's some photos from our time...
Jacob and Pops playing peek a boo through the glass
On Saturday my cousin's baby Graham had his 1st birthday. He and Jacob are 11 days apart. Which I think is really fun b/c his mommy and I are only 18 days apart. I love that our boys are so close in age. We went to the party and I think you'll be able to tell that Jacob had a fabulous time.
This kid was funny. He did NOT like his cake at all and would not have anything to do with it. Fran kept trying to get him to taste the icing. He would make the funniest faces and turn his head away. Oh well, I guess sweets aren't for everyone!

All the great-grandkids. Plus Jared.

Graham got this super fun alphabet train and as you can see all the kids wanted it

Meredith giving Jacob a bottle. Poor petite thing - he's almost as big as she is
Reading, I mean eating a book before bedtime
Playing with his new fun car mat that my cousin Anna and the two girls gave him
My grandmother has this long hallway and Jacob thought it was so fun to crawl up and down it. Here he is playing with his daddy.
Snuggling with Uncle Troy
is so much fun
Going for a ride in the wagon
We had a small party for both Jacob and Graham on Sunday at my aunt's house. Since all of them live too far to come celebrate with us this weekend, we thought we'd party a little early.
Jacob's 1st cupcake
Getting some icing
Hmmmm...I think he likes it. How about you?
Opening some presents
Which one do I play with first?
Wonder what's in here?
Playtime with Mama before bed
Ok. I know this picture is weird. But, it was funny. I kept trying to get my grandmother to stick out her tongue. Everytime she tried to do it she made the funniest faces. Here's the best picture we got. Ha ha...I love her so much!!!
On the way home we stopped in Atlanta so Jacob could visit with his other great grandmother for a bit. Here they are in deep discussion about the cd player.
