Last night

Jake was giving Tessa a good night kiss before I took her off to bed. He said, "Nigh night. Love you!"

She responded with, "Ove ooh, Gake," ....as in "Love you, Jake." Hee hee. We had a good laugh about it after I put her down. She must have picked up his first name from listening to me. She said it again tonight. I wonder how long it will last. Too funny.
Here's a flashback pic --I think it's when she was about two weeks old.
Since I'm talking about him anyway, I think this is as good a time as any to announce that Jake accepted an offer with the law firm where he was interning earlier in the summer. It's a good place with good people, and we are both excited. What a blessing to have a job set a year before graduation.

Cute Tessa! She's a smartie! I love that older photo of Jake and Tessa.

Yes! A job already, amazing! I am so proud of the two of you. Tessa is getting older and the more her speech developes the more funnies will come. Not so funny when they have the words to tell you that you have a big big bum :)

Congrats, Jake! Your dad told me a little about that law firm and it sounds like a very good place to be. Next time you're in town, come and visit us - I mean it!!

Congrats Gake! I mean Jake and to you too, Maren. That's so wonderful. And Tessa is so cute, it's great that you log it down so you can look back and show her when she is older and you both can smile.

Congrats Jake (and Maren and Tessa)! That is awesome! So, I guess you're not moving back to Utah? :(
And, I wanted to share that Evan refers to me and Christian by our first names all the time. Especially if a) he has friends over or b) I'm not paying attention or responding to him fast enough. It makes me laugh every time. Oh yeah, and if he's talking to someone else about us. Silly kids!

Congrats on the job offer! Where will you be? And MaKell is the same as Katie's boys, she knows she gets my attention when she uses my real name. She will even do the full name thing "Excuse me, Kelley Rae Allred!"
