The Old and the New

Here is Jake before one big day this month:

Falling backwards fast so that he is blurry.

Mug shot
Laughing because he thinks he's so funny

And NOW:

He got braces!!!Being silly again
And again. (My camera was on the red eye position so it took longer to take the picture after I'd push the button. So Jake thought it was very funny to smile and look like he was taking a nice, normal picture and then to jump up real close, or lean back real fast, or do a serious face!) He keeps me smiling. I guess they never stop being silly.

This cute kid has been sick in bed for a week! The doctor thought it might be swine flu. Whatever it was, it was something else I tell ya. He could barely move. And all this happened right at the end of the term when everything is due and he missed tons of tests, etc. Crazy! I am just glad he is on the upswing now.

Also, I love this blog post.

I am so glad that you posted again! You always have the best posts! :)

He does look good with braces! :) We saw him at the store with your mom I think that same day these pics were taken (he was wearing the same shirt... maybe he wears it all the time... I dunno lol) and it was so crazy how tall he is now! Wow!

Thanks for sharing that post! :)

How cute!!
I always wished I could get braces.
He's old.

I'm so sorry for Jake! Owen had swine flu, and is also just recovering. It wiped him OUT! yuck! I'm glad Jake is doing better.
