Essentially, recently Jacob has discovered the delights of Tetris (though he looked at the screen once for about 30 seconds and got bored).
And then he got to snack with a gorilla.
That's it for now. We'll do better soon, I promise.
Enjoy the last few days of this decade!!!

Consider it an early Christmas Present.
This morning Jacob and I were over at a friends apartment who owns a keyboard. Jacob turned on the beat and started nodding his head to the music. Then he started shouting "hey, all mine" to the beat.
I think it's gonna be a single.

Mondays this fall have meant a fun few hours with adorable Olivia. It's been hilarious to see the HUGE difference between girls and boys of the same age (while she is extremely verbal and articulate, Jacob is all brawn and energy). Can you just see the necklace and purse she found while Jacob stomps and jumps around saying "jump" as he leaps from everything...
His older lady friend, Odette, came over during the Cardinals game last night and Jacob couldn't have been happier. Anytime she left his sight, he came running out to the living room and crowd of game-watchers to ask with slight panic, "Uh-dette? Uh-dette?"
That being said, he's been missing Jenny- but he also seems to have fond memories as he smiles to her picture and name (or apartment door or window, toy, anything that reminds him of her). It's been really neat to see him remember her with positive emotions...
Then there's the issue of using crayons only on paper. Here's Jacob so peacefully and happily scribbling away...

But are we really already arriving to that point, I mean he's just barely over 1 1/2! Yikes...I don't know if that's scarier for daniel and myself or for his mood after 6 pm!
On the first day of missed nap, his exhaustion caught up with him at dinner time as evidenced by this pathetic piece of video.
Yes, he does a falling asleep head-jerk while drinking his water. Yes, he does his sign for "all done" but say "more" at the same time. Yes, he does nearly miss his mouth with a piece of toast. Yes, this was hilarious...and pitiful. Following this pathetic display, Jacob proceeded to get a second wind and run around with his Didi for another hour before bath time. Then, he slept for 10 1/2 hrs straight, close to his record. Even that tired, he couldn't sleep past 6:45 am...but I shouldn't complain having a few nights with more than 8 hrs of uninterrupted sleep!
I'm not sure what we'll all do as we have all enjoyed Jenny and her parents Anders and Sophia... While in Phoenix, Jacob has pointed to these pictures on our camera and said "Nee, Nee" then attempted to either find her, or becomes upset that she isn't here to play.
Last Friday, Jenny and Sophia along with Jacob and myself, rode the train (BART) and bus to get to the Zoo! Everyone had a blast, especially on the train and carousel. Oh, and of course, the animals were cool ;).

Jacob found these knee and elbow pads and insisted on wearing them for the entire morning.
One day, we went to an old school that is now a place space for kids....kids big and small as seen by the dads playing away!
Tavin and Jacob having a good read.
Our visit to very windy Long Beach (coast of Washington right next to Oregon). All Jacob wanted to do was chase seagulls and play in the sand. All while running. He was the energizer bunny and screamed when we left (due to frustration and cold hands)!

In case you were wondering, this is some of what a cooped up jacob does:
Yes, every last one of those books began on the bookshelf this morning.

He laughs and smiles as much as ever but can better communicate what is tickling him just so and can usually signify what is bugging him when he's frustrated. -However, he certainly has his toddler irrational frustrations...those are fortunately short lived and distractable.
He enjoys mimicking and, as seen below, sometimes does it quite well....and sometimes cracks us all (including himself) up.
I suppose he's too distracted jumping off of playground equipment (part not intended as jumping points), climbing onto the dining room table and toilet tank, and picking all the green strawberries and tomotatoes from the community garden (sometimes eating them....)?
