i've been trying to be his favourite aunt since we've come home. however, the classic "distract, confuse, and lead away from mom" move didn't work. that amicable look is deceiving; he's one tough cookie.
and then his grammy and grandad came home from europe and he ran right up to them like he had been expecting them at any moment.
i can wait for that.
he and his uncle tyler do make a smashing duo, though. they certainly have swagger.

we missed them, too.
ps. uncle tyler would like you to grow a pirate beard like this, jacob. please don't.
