sarah's dream come true...1.31

ever since we told sarah that mommy was going to have a baby, she has had but ONE request...she didn't care if it was a brother or sister, she didn't care what we named him/her, she didn't care about anything EXCEPT if she could give him/her a bottle. poor little punkin didn't realize that mommy was going to nurse the baby!
at 6 weeks, tim gave jacob his first bottle of expressed milk. he guzzled it right down like he had been bottle feeding his whole life :) after that initial bottle, we have tried to give jacob one a week so that he wouldn't "forget" how to take one...
tim had been the only one to give jacob a bottle for a long time...then nana, pop pop, and aunt becky kept the kiddos so tim and i could go out to dinner ALONE...nana was the second person to give jacob a bottle...
the third person to give jacob a bottle was our friend miss jan scott...she was at our house shopping at the just ducky trunk show and offered to give him a bottle because i was really busy...again, he took it like a champ! and she was eating it up herself because she has another grandbaby on the way at the end of the summer!!!

finally, the big one...daddy took the three kids to nana and pop pop's house on the saturday of the just ducky show...while they were there, jacob needed to eat. sarah FINALLY got to give her little brother a bottle...on his 3 month birthday! the pictures and video speak for themselves...sarah was on cloud nine! what a sweet big sister...at the ripe ole age of 4 no less!!!

She IS amazing - and Jacob is SUCH a trouper! It is obvious how much all of the Woodards love each other! Good job, good parenting!!! Wish we were there more to be a part of it all!

I could watch Sarah loving Jacob all the time - it is just too precious! She's this sweet with Drew, too, isn't she???
