Jake's First Birthday!!!

It is hard to believe that a year has gone by already. It seems just like yesterday Denise and I were sitting in the waiting room of the hospital waiting for Jake to be born. He was born at 7:15 P.M. on year ago today. I have really bonded with my Little Man. Watching him everyday has taken its toll on me but I love every minute I spend with him. The first picture is of his birthday cake, which I ordered from a new bakery in Bronxville called Chantilly. The cake was vanilla with lemon filling and butter cream frosting. It was very good. I would get another cake from them but only for a special occasion since they are very expensive.
The second picture is of Jake showing us how big he is. Jake shows you how big he is and then clamps his hands. He is walking but when he really wants to get someplace fast he crawls.
He loves his books and will sit for long periods of time just looking at them. As you can tell he is the love of my life.
I started PT for my shoulder in hopes of avoiding surgery. I hope it works and I get some strength back in my arm. I have four more weeks of PT twice a week and then will go back to the doctor to see what my options are.
I have been working on Ada Hayden's Fall tree and am having such fun stitching it. I should have it done by the weekend and will post a picture of the completed tree.
Hope you enjoyed Jake's Birthday Pictures.
