"YAHOOO, It’s been a while since I’ve posted some family photos, and let’s face it, pictures of Jakob and Theo are a lot more fun than anything I could write.

The boys are doing great… Jakob loves being a big brother, and after all the horror stories people told us about how Jakob would change and get jealous when there was a baby in the house, I’m pleased (o.k. — thrilled) to report that he’s as sweet as can be. He gets very concerned when Theo cries, ("Mommy, Daddy, Theo’s crying!!!") and when he and I leave for school in the morning, he loves to kiss Theo before he leaves.
And Theo just gets cuter every day. The hardest part has been making the transition to thinking of him as a healthy baby. Kat and I still get more nervous when he has an extended crying jag than we did with Jakob. Fortunately, those crying jags are pretty few and far between. After all he’s been through, he’s an amazingly sweet, good-natured little boy.

And we’ve got Kat’s family in town this weekend. Today, Kat’s mom got to make cookies with her two oldest grandchildren, and judging by the pictures, a good time was had by all.
I hope everyone out there is getting a chance to relax, recharge the batteries, and spend some time with loved ones over the next few days. I’ve got a ton of thoughts rolling around, and I’m hoping to get some rest and then do a ton of blogging over the break.

Happy Holidays all!
