Jake is 8 months old today! Whew, what a fast ride that was! After crawling for two weeks, he is now the bravest and most adventurous member of our family. He loves yogurt, sweet potatoes, and playing with anything except actual toys - he's already figured out how to get the TV stand open and pull out the DVDs and Wii controllers. And yesterday? He yanked the huge Settlers of Catan box off the shelf and climbed on top of it. So it begins, so it begins.
