Jacob has confidence, chutzpah, cockiness and a stubborn iron will. All strong Bulgarian manly traits! ;o)
Jacob wants no part of dressing in his costume celebrating his heritage! He protested loudly!!
Crocodile tears faded and he is curious as to......why?.......are we doing this? LOL!
Jacob fiercely fights for his independence. He does what he wants, when he wants. He does not like compromise, and he prefers to be alone. In fact he thinks he's invisible??!! Poor guy! We can and do see him. More than he'd like.
And there's no way we are giving up on him! :o)
We are so proud of how far he's come!
Ooopsie! A little melt down here! ;o)
This is how he prefers to stand up, without holding on to anything. When he came home his legs were thin and weak. His left leg was much smaller. As he grows and puts on weight his left leg has gained tremendous strength. He has learned balance and he works on it every day! Taking baby steps. But not walking.
It was his idea. And when it's his idea he gives it 100%.
Isaiah adores Jacob. Isaiah doesn't have a favorite sibling, but he LOVES spending time with Jacob.
At lunch yesterday Jacob picked up Isaiah's piece of cake at the dinner table to throw it on the floor! Jacob is very practical, he had his own cake, there was no need for another piece near by. Huh?!
Isaiah had to leave the room to laugh hysterically! He thought it was incredibly funny. I however did not. I firmly told Jakie that it was not nice!! Jakie tunes me out. And then I watched him like a hawk. Of course he was mad about the extra attention from me! So he pouted. I was not in the least bit surprised by Jakie's actions- he is that mischievous! But I wish he'd at least try to be nicer!?
And then it was bed time! And Mr Jacob was thrilled to remove the outfit, get into his scooby-do pjs and sleep sack to get ready for bed! So he gave us all his beautiful happy face, the face we live for!
