Joshua: What I like about Jacob is that he’s always there to give me Harry Potter trivia. It’s helpful when I’m frustrated.
Autumn: He’s always willing to help and he’s really good at babysitting.
Katey Belle: Jacob watches me while you guys are gone. He puts me to bed and gives me milk. That’s it. That’s all I’ve got.
Caleb: Milk. Me too! And watch a movie, mama. We watch a movie. And turn off the light when we go to bed. I think I love Jacob.
Mommy: Jacob is a fast learner. He is growing up so fast and gets more capable by the day. He learned how to cook bacon on a camp-out last month and cooked some up for dinner tonight. He rocked it. It was the best bacon I have ever had.
Andrew: Jacob is a cook. He cooked the best bacon in my life. He’s a cook like Mommy and Tana (our neighbor that caters weddings and sends over leftovers – we love her.)
Meri: Burp *umph* uuuhh (she’s got gas, sweet thing)
Daddy: I like Jacob’s sense of humor. It’s on the dry side.
Jacob: What does that mean?
Joshua: It means you don’t have very much of a sense of humor. Otherwise it would be juicy.
Daddy: No. It’s a little bit dry and a little bit sarcastic and a lot funny. You have to think for just a second and then *heh heh* I get it. That’s funny.
Jacob: Does that mean I’m slow witted?
Daddy: No – it means you’re quick witted. And you’re not one to laugh loudly at your own jokes.
We love Jacob. He’s a sweetheart and fun lovin’. He’s always willing to help and is always asking what I need. He is loved lots by his siblings and a voracious reader. Crazy voracious.
