Happy Birthday Jake!
Jacob is 13. He's DS #3. His birthday was yesterday, but since it was already a holiday, we decided to postpone until today. Of all my children, he is the most difficult to describe in words. He is creative- he built me a beautiful bedside table- long and narrow, with only three legs, but very stable. He loves to cook and even has a notebook dedicated to his favorite recipes. Personality-wise... it's hard to say. He is more easy than my other children. He is considerate and thoughtful. He notices things. When he was only 2 he quit taking naps- but stayed in bed the entire 2 hours- daydreaming. He has never needed anybody to keep him company, but he is very sociable. He loves being outdoors and hiking and swinging from trees. He has the type of personality that catches subtle humor when it passes by everyone else. He's the kind of kid other people notice and offer him business cards, so he can call them when he's grown and apply for a job. He's goofy and playful. Determined and driven. And now he's a teenager. Gulp. And we love him to pieces.

Where was this kind of boy when my daughter was younger? He sounds like a charmer!

Ah, those eyes...that dreamboat. Would he cringe to know his GM thinks him so-o-o-o handsome? Well, maybe on the outside. He is one very cool kid!

He sounds like a wonderful young man, and so handsome! I bet his beauty is not skin deep but goes all the way to the bone.
