The Lehman Brothers
Thanksgiving Day 2002

Ari on the bed

What a year this has been, we have so much to be thankful for.  Ari is celebrating his 6 month birthday today on Thanksgiving, cute as a button, and Jacob is now 2 years old and is absolutely amazing!

Ari smiles all the time.  This is one happy baby!  The first thing that most people notice about Ari is his dark complexion, we're not sure where that came from, but other than that, he is all Lehman.

big boys table.

The one thing that everyone keeps asking about is how well does Jacob treat Ari.  Let me tell you, Jacob loves his little brother!  From the beginning, we taught Jacob to give Ari little kisses, which he loves to do, and he has been a very good big brother to Ari.  Jacob gets plenty of attention, how can we resist, and that has made the transition to a "two child family" much easier.

For the most part Ari is sleeping through the night and eating well, he is a bit short for his age, but he is growing well and is not short on being adorable!

Jacob is going to Aleph Bet pre-school at Chabad in Richmond, and so far is really excelling at school.  His teacher Morah Judy told me that "Jacob will be a force of good in this world."  What a great statement, I can barely remember the rest of the meeting!  He is speaking in full sentences, for example "Mommy, it's cold outside" or "I dropped my milk" or "I don't want to go to bed." He may not always tell us what we want to hear, but the intelligence behind the statements more than makes up for the chore of cleaning the milk off of the floor!

The house is busy: the hustle and bustle of baths, the pitter-patter of little feet, the cries for food, the coos for affection, the little kisses, the spilled milk, the first words, the naptime complaints, the new sentences (spoken for the first time), the squash and beans in your eye, the stinky diapers, the throw up on your sheets, and the these words "I Love You Mommy and "I Love You Daddy" make it all worthwhile. 

Thank you G-d for all of these blessings today and always.
