Jake's First St. Patrick's Day!


Hi all, hope you had a nice St. Pat's Day.
We all went out to our local restaurant. They do up St. Pat's Day in a big way. Lot's of food, Irish music etc. It was Jake's first one, and my friend Jean said don't forget to take a picture of Jake in his green shirt. Well he was still in the stroller waiting for our table. People were lined up outside. Jake was a trooper, and we all had a fun time.
See his little toy giraffe. This is Sophie the giraffe, from France. It's a teething toy that my daughter read about. You can't get it too many places, although you can get in on line, and at Nordstrom. She just got it last week, and the minute Jake got it, it was like magic. He loves this thing. It's soft enough for babies to chew on, easy to hold, and it squeaks. It's really cute too. Leave it to the French!! So it's been baby tested and mother, and gran (that's what I'm called) approved!!
I just got back from my walk, and it must be Spring. I saw 8 new baby ducks following their mother. So cute!!
It's almost the weekend again, and this weekend will be spent in the backyard, getting it ready for Spring, Easter and planting the flower garden.
Enjoy your weekend.
Chat again soon.
Love,
Rosemary, and Jake too!
PS, I forgot to mention, Jake will be 6 months old on Sunday!!

We bought that same giraffe after seeing Jake's! Ethan hasn't figured it out yet, but hopefully soon.

We loved meeting Jake this past weekend. He's so adorable! You must be such a proud gran!

That sweet baby boy just gets cuter and cuter. I am so ready for spring. We had 15 inches of snow on Friday, and today it is supposed to be 50. That is definitely spring in Colorado. Have a fabulous weekend.

Hi Rosemary,

Jake is such a darling and can't believe that he is now 6 months.
The time seems to have flown.
I love the little toy giraffe and what a good idea.

Happy week
