Buddy and the babies were here visiting us the middle of December and Mike and I took little Jake with us to a wedding reception. He was styling for sure in his new suit his Aunt Lori had just gotten for him.
Tiny little dark brown pinstripe suit with vest and tie no less! And he had his little brown loafers on with matching socks and of course a tiny dress shirt.
His daddy slicked down and parted his hair, scented him up with a tiny bit of Old Spice and off we went. He immediately got a few sucks from his bottle and the motion of the car carried him right off to baby dreamland.
Is there anything more perfect than a sleeping baby...........................
Everyone fell in love with our little charmer. For him there was not a stranger in the room. He winked, flirted and smiled at everyone. He walked, ran and rocked the afternoon away. Mind you he was not quite 11 months old here and had already been walking a month!
Mike's oldest brother Douglas has been very ill and was the main reason we had even gone thinking it might be one of the last times Mike would have to visit with his brother.Doug is on the left and his brother Gary on the right. Jakey's big brown eyes lit up and the biggest smile came over his face when he met Doug. And the smile on Doug's face was priceless as he looked at this precious little soul.
Of course we took the stroller with us thinking Jake would sit in it and get pushed around (at least I thought so) but Poppa had another idea all along. The car stopped and Mike said "I'll just carry Jake"...and carry him he did!
He was so proud of his baby grandson. We are more than smitten if you can't tell.
RoseMeredith stayed home with Daddy so she could be a Tiger. When she was born two years ago and on our Jake senior's birthday she literally saved our lives as we were all still reeling from Jake's death.
And then lo and behold exactly a year passed and we got another gift.........this little fellow named for his uncle.
