Happy 7th birthday Jacob!

7 years ago today, I went through my first major surgery. The end result was an adorable, chubby bundle of joy that we named Jacob William. He was the answer to a prayer. We found out that I was pregnant with Jacob during the same month that Travis was to have been born. 
Our lives have never been the same since. Jacob is a very active, hyper, always talking, loveable boy who loves sports and sports and more sports. He is great at reading and remembering things.

Today, Jacob had pancakes and bacon for breakfast before school.

 I took football themed cupcakes to school for him to share with his class. 

Tonight, we will have his birthday dinner of PB&J sandwiches and we will just hang out at home. We are planning on having him a little get-together this weekend to celebrate with family. 
 I can't believe he is 7 already! 



  1. Great post Rachel. I loved learning more about Jacob. Those cupcakes are sweet! Did you decorate them yourself?

    1. Thanks Jane. I actually cheated with the footballs as they are wilton premade football sugar shapes. But the cupcakes and green icing was all me and his cake this weekend will be all me :)

  2. Happy Birthday Jacob! As the mom of 3 sons, I understand the answer " Sportscenter, of course" perfectly.

    1. Yep it is sports here all the time. Hubby is a sports editor for the newspaper too so LOTSof sports around here.lol

  3. Great idea to "interview" your kid for their birthday. Be sure to keep those for when they get older. ;-)

  4. What a fun idea to interview him for his birthday! Why would he buy 20 milk jugs with $1000? That's an interesting answer. Hope you all have a wonderful birthday celebration!
