Jacob has hit some big milestones since I last wrote about him. He learned to walk just before he turned 15 months old. Now he is running all over the place. I weaned him a couple weeks ago which went pretty smoothly as long as james put him to bed at night. He now goes to bed fine with me and happily drinks milk from a sippy.
He knows a few dozen signs and learns them very quickly. Often all I have to do is show him a sign 1-2 times and he knows it. He loves to communicate with his signs. It is really cute. If he can't get his point across he'll start doing every sign he can think of. It's a pretty funny sight.
He has started to say a couple more words. He now says "hi", "jesus"(his second word ;), "thank you", "jacob", "joshua" and sometimes "dada"and "mama".
He loves to copy everything, especially his brother. He is already a little shadow following joshua much of the time.
He is obedient most of the time. This is a bit of a shock for me since my first child is Joshua. Joshua was far from obedient at this age. He was/is an extreme tester of limits--over and over and over again. You know what I mean if you know Joshua:) Jacob doesn't always like to obey but he usually does, even if he has a tantrum in the process.
