Jacob is 2!

Justin and I decided a few months ago that we would keep Jacob's birthday really low-key this year. He didn't understand it was his birthday and we had a big party for him last year. We decided we would just have cake as a little family and give him a couple birthday presents. Because of my lack of energy and terrible carpal tunnel we were going to pick up a cake at the store. My parents wanted to come down and see Jacob to wish him a happy birthday and my mom offered to help me make a cake for Jacob, so we celebrated his birthday the Saturday before his birthday (3 days early).

The bad news is that Jacob started getting sick a week before his birthday and was diagnosed with a mild case of pneumonia on Thursday the 9th. So on Saturday he was still feeling pretty miserable. He was able to enjoy part of opening his presents, but he didn't enjoy his cake at all. Which made me a little sad because I think it turned out really cute.
Here is Jacob while we were singing happy birthday to him. Our singing must have been really bad.
The next night he was feeling a lot better and was able to enjoy his cake a little.
On Jacob's actual birthday (Tuesday the 14th), we sang to him again and let him try to blow out his candle. Instead he tried to grab the flame.
We also tried to take a picture of him with his elephant. He thought it was a big game.
Good thing we won't be attempting another picture with Jacob and his elephant for another year!
