Catching Up: August

Here are the goings-on from August:

Jake was motivated to brush his teeth by a sticker chart. Then by September he didn't care anymore, so we stopped using it and just brushed his teeth with no problems. (And yes, those stickers are 1980's stickers from Highlights magazine. Keeping it real.)

He started wanting to help make lunch.

One morning I walked in and he had done this.

When my mom came in August, we went to the Peabody ducks again. But we got there late and they started early, so we didn't get to see them come down the elevator, but we enjoyed watching them for a while.

Jake really enjoyed watching the

glass elevator go up and down.


The elevator was the deal.

But he also enjoyed the ducks.

Then we rode the elevator all the way to the top!

He also enjoyed the Granna.

We stopped by the Kroger Marketplace's one year anniversary party where we saw the biggest cake in North America. (No really. Click to see it.)

And Jake got excited for the beginning of football season.
