Go Jacob; It's your birthday

Happy birthday, Jacob!
Do you remember that Jacob couldn't decide if he was four or five? From an earlier post: Jacob will not be turning 2 this month. We've been teaching him to answer "2" when asked "how old are you?" And for the past month or so, Jacob has been right on like a trained seal to answer what we want him to, on cue. Yesterday, Nathan asked him how old he was, and Jacob replied that he was four. "No, Jacob. You're two. Can you say 2?" Nathan tried again. Same answer. One last try: "How old are you, Jacob?" "Okay. Five." I think I get his thought process. On June 29th we were at Nathan's parents. It was Nathan's birthday, but we had a combined birthday party. In Jacob's head, he turned 2 on June 29th. Then, on July 7th, we were at my parents. Another party. Cake, ice cream and more presents! I guess he turned 3 at this party. (I warned my mom that her ugly cupcake pans would be featured here. Sad, aren't they? Her birthday is later this month. Maybe she needs this?) And finally. Finally! July 14th. His actual 2nd birthday, where Jacob thinks he turned 4. A good day. We went to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point where we mingled with many a farm animal and Jacob got to ride a horse/pony. Twice. More cake, more ice cream, more presents. At least this time, we made "helfy cupcakes" (1 box cake mix, chocolate + 1 - 15 oz can pure pack pumpkin + some water...1/4 to 1/3 cup) that were just as yummy as the real deal. Happy 2nd/3rd/4th Birthday, Jacob. I hope that all your wishes come true. (Except the caboose in the back yard.)
