Jake and E
Jacob and Ethan are only fourteen months apart and so in some ways I consider them both to be my firstborns. The two oldest. Rich and I lived near family until I was pregnant with Grace and so these two boys are the only ones of my five that my parents were able to spend lots and lots of time with as little ones. I am sure that they feel the same way that I do — that Jake and E are getting big and that time is quickly passing by. Jacob is almost as old as my younger brother was when I was married! When I watch the two of them together I often get that motherly intense contented feeling. I love how close they are. They are like cute puppies that play, wrestle, make messes, and all the time looking just as innocent as can be!
I thought it would be fun to include some older pictures of Jacob and Ethan. Here we are in 1998.
They call this “Camp Hope”, they have forts all over the place.
