Jacob’s New Trick

Jacob has learned a new trick. And all on his own, I might add.


When he was younger, we’d get him to smile for pictures by doing something silly behind the camera—usually fake sneezing or pretending to kill a bug. Now, he’s old enough to understand, “Smile!” which means that at the ripe age of two, Jacob has a real smile

and a fake smile.

Little boyhood, here we come!

P.S. Doesn’t he kind of look like a pumpkin in that too-big fleece?
