Baby Girl and Wrightsville Beach

So, since I'm in the habit of updating our blog every 5 months we haven't announced that we are expecting a baby in late September. IT'S A GIRL! Above is my 23 week picture--taken at Wrightsville Beach where we have been enjoying a week of vacation with the Love Family.

Here is a favorite picture from today at the beach. Jacob (almost 18 months) is enjoying his first oatmeal creme pie fed to him from Grandy. Such a sweet face!

Jacob's First Birthday....really late

We were so excited to celebrate our little man's 1st birthday on in early December. I'm operating under the "better late than never" plan about posting pictures and updating the blog. Please forgive the lateness :)

11 months old!

How is Jacob already 11 months old? He's chattering and crawling all over the place and is so much fun! We're thanking the Lord for this sweet baby boy!

Happy Fall Y'all!

It's been forever since our last post, but we have been enjoying life and this sweet baby the Lord has blessed us with. He is growing up so fast! Jacob is 10 months, and is walking while holding onto furniture and crawling all over the place. It's really fun!

New York City!

In New Yoooork... it's been really different having Jacob here in the city with us! Instead of staying out in the city all day and night, we're planning around naps, feedings and 7pm bedtimes! We aren't experiencing much of "the city that never sleeps" other than getting up at 5:30 with sweet baby Jacob :) It's great though! Here is a little bit of what we've been up to these past 2 weeks.Packing!!! LOTS AND LOTS of packing! Here is Stephanie and Jacob packing some of his clothes :)Riding the Subway. We both LOVE the subway. We usually get home and wish that there was a subway system at home. Jacob loves to squeel (not to be confused with screaming) while on the subway. Thankfully people are really sweet and don't give us too many weird looks.
A highlight for me was checking out the Madison Square Garden Playground! I never considered that taking Jacob to the park would even be fun since he can't sit up by himself, crawl or anything like that. But we found a double swing and Jacob joined Savannah Pezzoli in it! It was the most precious thing ever. Here I am taking Jacob down his first slide!

Jacob has been such a trooper. It's been hard figuring out what our whole family can be a part of and what just can't work with a 6 month old. Already, I have left many restaurants with a fussy baby...which hasn't been fun, but it's been an adventure for sure!

So as for ministry in the city, the students arrived last Tuesday! There were a few days where we helped them get settled in and learn their way around. But today was the first full day on campus for the students and staff! Reece spent the better part of his afternoon at Columbia University where he met 2 international students...one from South Korea and one from Taiwan. Other staff met students from Albania, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and the Middle East! One of our favorite things about NYC is that the world truly is here! Please pray for us as step out to influence college students for Christ! Pray that we would show love to this GREAT city!

5 months!

Time is flying by...

In less than 2 weeks Jacob will be 6 months old! This month has been really fun as he is much more expressive and interested in everything...especially his feet! He LOVES to put his feet in his mouth..and really anything he gets his hands on. It's hilarious!

A week ago, we also started giving him a little bit of rice cereal once a day. He isn't super excited about it, but most days he will eat a little bit. It's hard to believe that he's old enough to be eating now! It will be fun to experience him trying all different kinds of foods very soon.

(Great) Grandma Love

Last week we had the treat of visiting with my grandma Love for a few days. She lives out in Wyoming, and we don't get to see her often enough unfortunately. Grandma hadn't met Jacob yet, so we introduced the little man to his Great Grandmother! It was also special to have her in town for my 27th birthday! So sweet!
Look at that fire! Being 27 is dangerous!

Grandma and Jacob :)
