Jake the Rake!!

That was one of our family's MANY nicknames for our youngest brother, Jacob. And, being the sweet guy that he is, he took them all in in stride. Well, we are now lucky enough to have the honor of having Jake live with us here in Albuquerque! YEAH! We were so excited to hear that he was coming. He is so helpful around the house, cleans up after himself, does his own laundry and dishes, loves to play with Oliver, and even babysits for free. Oliver also loves Jacob and even prefers him over me at times. He really is such fun to have around and we hope that he stays here and falls in love with being a dental assistant on our brother's-in-law mobile dentistry trailer.

How fun to have a relative around! How fun that Jake and Oliver have bonded.

Maybe you and Jake can come drive out to Dallas together sometime to visit- this idea just occurred to me...does he ever get time off?

A live in babysitter and playmate for Ollie. Nice idea. I like it!

I'm jealous - I wish someone from my family would come live with me! That's the prob with living so far away I guess. Also, I am crazy about the free-babysitter-thing! So, did you guys get him a job? I was under the impression that Jake was just starting training to be a DA - has he gone through school already? What an interesting vocation for him! Tell him hi for me!

Lucky you to have Jake living with you. Lucky Jake, to have a sister and brother-in-law who not only love him, but truly delight in his company. Sounds like a win, win!
