It’s been quite the day. This evening, Jacob had a new first. He requested I read him an owner’s manual for his bedtime story. Yes, I’m sure years from now, he will still remember how to operate a Motorola W376g cell phone. He had found the manual in its box and had been carrying it […]

Home, Home On Range

For about two years now, part of our bedtime routine for Jacob is that I read him a book, sing to him, and then put him down for the night. I’d been singing “Jesus Loves Me” because that’s what Terah had been singing when she used to do that part of the bedtime routine. One […]

Jacob Update

Let’s start with a photo: That’s Jacob over at the pumpkin patch near us. He found something to inspect, and spent awhile doing it. As he does. He’s taken a liking to our cat, Nash. Jacob calls him “cat Nash”. Never just “Nash”. When we get home from somewhere, if the cat is around, Jacob […]

Jacob is Youtube’s Youngest Fan

Ever since we got back from our train trip this summer, Jacob has loved to talk about trains. He used to call them a “toot” after the sound they make, but as his language skills improve, now he calls them “chains.” I thought one day that he might like to look at pictures of our […]

Jacob’s Fun Answer

August 31st, 2008, 1 Comment

Jacob is starting to learn about the world around him a little bit. He seems to have four categories of people: men, women, children, and babies. He can say “man” and “baby” pretty clearly. Earlier today, I heard Terah telling Jacob “Dad is a man. Mom is a woman.” Maybe an hour later, I walked […]

It’s ben a little while since I wrote about Jacob. He’s about 20 months old now. For awhile, he was on a whole hugging spree. He wanted to hug anything happy. It could be me, a stuffed animal, a rock, or even a book. To hug something, Jacob holds it up to his cheek, leans […]

What We’ve Got Coming

That was me on my first birthday. You might need to view the large version to see that yes indeed, I was very intent on that fire and probably would have loved to touch it. Now, Jacob is about 8 months old right now. I have every reason to believe that if I were to […]

Jacob update: Week 4

October 30th, 2006, 3 Comments

Well, it’s been busy around here. Since Jacob was born, we moved, and the house project is keeping us busy, too. Jacob gave out his first smile Sunday morning — and, much to Terah’s shock, it was to me. He’s a lot of fun to be around when he’s alert. But he’s also preparing for […]

The News

Big news over here: earlier this week, our first baby was born: Jacob Simon Goerzen! He weighed in at 8 lbs, 12 oz and is doing well. Terah was in labor most of the day, but eventually the doctor determined he was too big, so was delivered by C-section. Terah is still sore from all […]
