What a great kid I have (and of course, more Abby photos)

I have to tell you that I am so proud of Jake. You see, Jake is ever so careful NOT to ever spend his own money on anything. He has been saving money for years now, and has built himself a nice chunk of change. Today he told me he wanted to buy Abby a present. Assuming he meant he wanted me to pay for it, I told him that we already bought Abby a present. He said, "No. I mean with my money." Needless to say, I was quite surprised. I took Jake to Macy's, where he spent a half hour looking at baby clothes. He had such a great time choosing the perfect gift for his baby cousin! Once he choose the outfit, he took it to the cash register and paid for it. In the car, Jake wrote on a torn piece of wrapping paper:

Dear Abby,
May your Christmas be filled with joy, peace, fun, and happiness. Love your big cousin, Jacob

My heart smiles when I think about what he did. I am so proud to be his mom!

Enjoy the pictures!
