Fun Stuff

The other night we had tacos and burritos. I put our food on the table and then went back to the kitchen to get drinks. When I went back to the table, Jacob was sitting on the ground with the edge of my unrolled burrito in his hand, beans dripping onto the floor. I guess he decided that he was hungry and wanted to start dinner. The torn edges in the picture is what he managed to eat before I got to him. I took the burrito from him before I realized it was a good picture opportunity. The look on his face was like "I was waiting patiently and then I got hungry. Why is everyone looking at me??" Blake and I just had to laugh.

For President's Day, Blake had off so we decided to go to the St. Louis Zoo. They always have free admission and because it was starting to snow, they had free parking on that day. It was the first time that Jacob has visited the zoo and he had a lot of fun. (Blake and I did too!)

Jacob walked around the zoo most of the time. There weren't very many people so sometimes we just let him run around.
Jacob had a runny nose and then fell into the dirt. He thought the dirt mustache was funny and complained when we tried to clean it off.

Blake thought that these animals were fake. He'd only seen them in pictures and thought that the stripes were photo shopped in. He was excited to learn that they were real.

When we were in the reptile house we found this snake. (Look at the picture below this one.) Named after us???

Jacob loved running around looking into the different tanks.

Jacob's New Chair

Blake and I decided to buy Jacob his own chair to sit in. When we got it last night, it had rockers on the bottom and he didn't want to sit in it. Probably because he didn't have control when it went forward or back. Blake took the rockers off and today Jacob doesn't want to get out of the chair. Even when he lost his ball he tried to get it and still stay on the chair.

Beans, Beans, the Musical Fruit . . .

We had tacos and burritos last night for dinner and decided to let Jacob try to feed himself beans. As you can see, he managed to get it everywhere. He did try using a spoon for a while but the beans kept falling off so he would use his fingers to scoop them up. Blake ended up feeding him what didn't come out of the bowl. (Yes, Melissa. They are Rosarita. I found out they sell them at the Commissary! :o))
