On 10/29/07 Jacob Dylan Drake was born. A year later this beautiful boy has given us blessings and joy we never could have dreamed of. I thank God everyday for His gift to us.
We celebrated Jakey's birthday with friends and family. It was a great time and Jake did really well with only one nap. A family tradition we have on first birthdays is to place items around on the floor, each representing a profession (e.g. stethoscope = medicine, Bible = ministries, spatula = chef). Then we let the birthday boy loose and wait to see which object he picks up first. Jakey first reached for the scientific calculator. So, we'll see if the tradition holds true and if he becomes a math teacher, engineer, accountant, etc.
Big thanks to all of our friends and family who helped make this day so special!
