Jacob and Daddy at the park
Getting ready to go down the slide
Jacob loves going down the slide.. honestly, he wasn't to into the rest of the park. The slide and playing in the mulch were definately the highlights for him.
Not quite sure if he liked the swing.. it only lasted about 2 minutes and he wanted out. He's been on a swing before but didn't seem into it this time
Jacob woke up in the middle of the night on 'dad's night' so Daddy was trying to rest his eyes. Too bad Jacob wasn't having it - he wanted to play with his Daddy.
Getting ready to enjoy Ted Drewes.. Jacob has no idea what he's about ready to eat!
Playing in the back of the car and lovin' the ice cream!
Close up of the little monster! If you could see his mouth it would show mommy, daddy and Nonna's ice cream. Little guy loved them all!

Matt, Jacob, Nonna and I went to the OB today and found out we have another little stubborn one on our hands. Baby was face down in the breach position with the legs straight up by the head. We couldn't get many good views and baby wasn't budging at all! The tech couldn't get all of the anatomy so we'll be going back in about a month to see more.. she did see one important thing though... Baby Beffa #2 is a GIRL!!!
Yep, Jacob is going to have a baby sister in October. He has no idea what's about to hit him!
Jacob also went to the doctor today. He has had a cough for about 2 weeks now and even though it seemed to be better today I decided we better get him in to see Dr. Bob. Of course, in true Jacob style, he has pneumonia! Dr said the right lung was pretty bad and he didn't even need an x-ray to confirm. We are on medicine now so hopefully he will start to feel better soon.
The dr also diagnosed the blisters that Jacob has on his feet as a form of eczema. He will never grow out of it and open shoes are the only thing he can wear right now. We'll be pointing this out to the dermatologist at our next visit as well..
Hope this baby girl knows what she is getting into - The Beffa house is full of drama and she need not feel the need to create her own!!

Jacob petting the goats! He loved them and wanted to pet each one.
Jacob playing in the children's zoo.
Family shot on the train at the zoo!
Jacob and mommy at the penguin house. As you can see he really liked it in there because the penguin's get so close. There is one swimming in the water in this picture and he got to touch them as they did their flips in the water.
Being silly while eating some bread - one of his favorite things!
Again being silly while having his shirt off!
Playing with blocks while ensuring he keeps his tape close by (on his wrist). He loves to wear this tape or painters tape like a bracelet - or more like an arm band.
1 second before the meltdown because mom wanted him to sit on the couch (instead of standing)..
And the meltdown begins...
And it's over a second later when he stands back up.. it's amazing how fast he can turn it off and on!

Jacob got golf clubs, a basket ball net, a cozy coupe (from Nonna) and a basket full of small goodies. Funny how when the Easter Bunny is pressed for time he ends up buying more than he originally intended :)
Jacob thinking about pulling those golf clubs out and using them as weapons.. the thought turned into reality shortly after. Look at that crazy hair too!
Trying to get into the cozy coupe for the first time.. doesn't quite have it down in this picture.
Finally figured out how to get in..
Now he has it!! Look at those feet up on the dash! Already chillin'
I normally try not to put pictures of other kids (due to possible parent's concerns) in Jake's blog but this one is too cute. Jacob watching the dog with his cousin.
Hanging out with Grandpa Beffa
Not sure why but I love this pic..
Parents as Teacher's offers many programs throughout the year, one of which is Spring Fling. They had lots of activities and toys for Jacob to play with and an Easter Bunny to visit. Below are some pictures from his visit this year.
Surprisingly Jacob liked the Easter Bunny - he did keep calling it a 'kitty' though. He kept saying "kitty soft"... we have 3 cats now that we live with Nonna and Jake thinks everything is a kitty.

Hats On Day was founded in 1995 by four sixth-graders at Henry School in St. Louis. They began the fundraiser when their friend and classmate, Kevin Beffa, was diagnosed with a type of childhood cancer called Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Kevin had been a bright, happy child with a passion for soccer. When he got sick, he had to miss school and lost all his hair from the treatments. Also in need of a bone marrow transplant, Hats On Day was planned to support Kevin during his battle with cancer. However, just days before the event, Kevin passed away.
Kevin is Matt's Brother and Jacob's Uncle. While we remember Kevin everyday, Hats on Day allows us to connect with him in a special way and gives us the opportunity to teach our children, who never met Kevin, about their uncle. This year is the 15th anniversary of Kevin's death and the 15th anniversary of the first Hats on Day.
Please take time to put on your hat for 'Kids with Cancer' this month and raise awareness of childhood cancer and the impacts it has on their lives and the lives of their families. Matt, Jacob and I are also participating in Walk With a Friend (http://www.friendsofkids.com/walk-with-a-friend.html) on April 24th in memory of Kevin. If you are interested in walking with us, please let me or Matt know.
Below are pictures of Jacob having fun with his hat in support of Uncle Kevin!
