Today is Jake's birthday. Jake is our second boy and our fifth child. He was the baby for four and a half years before Dan came to take the job. Jake is amazing.Balancing on this ball is an easy thing for Jake to do. I had a picture of him on his knees -- not using his hands -- but it was too blurry to post -- one of us moved. Jake can do amazing thing on this ball (which belongs to Kayli). It is terrifying for me to watch him because I'm always sure he's going to fall and split his head open on the multiple sharp objects in the room -- but he never has. When he was very young he already had such good balance that, after a while I quit cringing when he did semi-dangerous things because it was so extremely unlikely that he would fall.
