Jacob and I love to watch the squirrels and birds in our backyard. We have taken great pains to feed the birds while keeping the squirrels out of the bird seed. We even stopped putting seed into one of our bird feeders because it was too close to the bird bath and limbs, which allowed the squirrels easy access. A few days ago, Jacob began pointing and gasping and saying, "uh-oh". To my surprise, this very talented and agile squirrel had managed to climb the skinny, slippery pole to enjoy a feast of seeds. Jacob was delighted!

My grandson, Jacob, is the cutest, sweetest, strongest, smartest, most talented 17-month-old I know. But the one thing he had not mastered was the sippy cup. Oh, sure, he's been drinking from one since he went off the bottle at 12 months, but he insisted that someone else hold it for him. Today he did it himself and I am soooo proud!
