Since Billy and I are both had to go back to work today, we celebrated his birthday with a family party on Saturday evening. Jacob asked for a race car cake so I attempted to make one for him. Though it wasn't perfect, he saw it and yelled "THANK YOU MAMA!" so I guess I did ok! He was spoiled rotten by everyone with more fun new toys to play with!
While Jacob is beyond excited to be getting older, I am really having a hard time with it, more so than the fact that Kyle (our older son) is getting older too! When we met the boys, Kyle was already 5, he had started to lose some of that "baby, little boy" stuff. Jacob was almost 3 and still a baby! He had just started to talk and even that was just a few words and phrases. Looking at Jacob lately, I am beginning to see that he is starting to lose that "baby look" to him!! Since Billy and I adopted to boys at the ages of 4 and 6, we missed out on the baby things. I know we can't change that and we wouldn't change it for the world but I can still be a bit sad, can't I?
