The Ups and Downs of my 32nd year


I turned 33 on Tuesday, which was also Groundhog Day. The girls make it impossible to be disgruntled about getting older and frankly, I found it quite enjoyable and relished their celebration of my birth! I was bummed that the furry rodent saw his shadow because I am ready for some warmer temps.
It has been a busy year for us in the Jacobs household this past year, with many ups and some downs. They are listed in chronological order

Ups:
-our first trip to Disneyworld
-finding out we were having a third child (while very surprising at first)
-having the opportunity to work 1.5 miles away from home
-watching Elizabeth play t-ball
-finding out we were going to be the parents of a BOY!
-watching the girls learn to swim (for real) and Elizabeth jumping off the diving board
-seeing the pure joy on Emily's face during her dance class
-Elizabeth playing soccer was priceless
-giving birth to our sweet Charlie and knowing that he has completed our family
-celebrating nine years of marriage
-finding out we will have our first niece in June

Downs:
-leaving dear friends and students at a school that I love
-comforting Elizabeth over the death of her beloved frog Hoppy and holding back tears myself even though I strongly disliked having an amphibian in the house
-saying goodbye to our sweet dogs Roscoe and then Cooter (much harder than I could have ever imagined)

I can only imagine that this year will be full of exciting things along with disappointments and growing pains. While I hope the time goes slowly because I am realizing that what they say is true "time flies"; I also can't wait to see what year 33 holds in its grasp.

Elizabeth's quotes during her illness

On Tamiful:
"This medicine tastes worse than mud!" When has she tasted mud???

On her fever:
"I'll never be able to go outside with this fever." Poor baby wanted to ride her bike.

"Will I be sick forever?"

On Jeff staying up with her in the middle of the night:
"Daddy, you need to get some sleep too." He was "sleeping" in the chair in the living room while she was on the couch.
