Little Man Jake is 6

How can my baby be 6?  Wah....

Alas...tis true.

It seems we have started a new tradition of going to Emily for a 'real' haircut on the kids' birthday's.  We thought Emily had a few more weeks before her baby was going to be born born, but surprise!  Baby girl came yesterday.  We can't wait to meet her!
{Excuse the cell phone pics}
Thank you, Emily!  Jake got his first buzz cut.

Birthday dinner at home on his actual birthday.
People with summer birthdays are so fortunate to celebrate them outdoors!!

Posing with his presents

Shucking sweet corn.  Yum!

Oomph.  This is hard work!

Not sure how Kate got corn tassel strands in her hair?  

Lots of helpers get the job done quickly.

Jake and his fan club

Ditched the boy and did a girl pic.

Opening presents.  He gets to do this outdoors, too.  {Insert jealous whining.}

He is really into the old time Batman episodes right now so he wanted a Batman cake.  I found a template online and Jillian did the rest.

Jeff has decided we need to pay her for her cakes.  She was quite thrilled about that!

Posing with big sister in front of the cake she made.


I love the look on Jillian's face as she cheers for him.

Jake chose the nearby Mexican restaurant for his birthday lunch after church on Sunday.  They came and put this big hat on him when they sang Happy Birthday.  It was heavy and he had a hard time balancing with it on.  Haha

Happy Birthday, Little Man!  We love you and are so thankful that God blessed us with you!

Birthday blessings to your sweet little boy. Emma has always said that Jake and Josie need to meet. Now, that we've seen the batman cake, it's a done deal. They were made for each other. Hugs.
