Look what I can do Mom!

I have mentioned that Jake has been walking along furniture and walls for a while now. The past few days he has been letting go a little more each day. Today he finally realized that he can do it without holding on. He has been walking all over the house today. He is a bit wobbly but doing so good. I can't tell you how proud of him I am. He and Aidan both started walking at 15 months old. I worried that all of his surgeries, low oxygen and all of the other challenges he faced may delay him but he is hitting all of his milestones on time.

We are so proud of you Jacob. We love you and Aidan more than words can say!

We head to Missouri tomorrow. It's about a 12 hour car ride so we hope to get a lot of the driving done while the kids are asleep. Wish us luck! We can't wait to spend a great week relaxing with family.

Have a blessed and safe Fourth of July everyone!

  1. WOW!!! Way to go Jake! He has that Frankenstein walk perfected, just like Bodie. Man, I would love to see these 2 side by side. BTW, he sounds like a louder verson of Bodie. Bodie breathes a lot like that when he's walking. His card thinks it's all just how his body adapts to new skills (he did the same thing when he first started crawling). Any kind of extertion and he's breathing pretty loud as well. Like I said, it'd be a trip to see them together! LOL

  2. I know they would be adorable together. Jake ALWAYS breathes like that. He is louder when active but its pretty much constantly like that unless he is sleeping, then he is quiet as a mouse! <3

  3. Hey there! My name is Tammy and you may not remember me but I fell in love with your little jacob at a 31 party at the Slaughters home at Summer Acres!! I think about him (and family) often and just could kiss his checks off. You are truly blessed to have such an awesome little boy! Take care of yourself and will be praying for him
