Jacob so far has only 3 other first cousins; 2 other cousins that are my very good friends kids and they are a bit older than him. I never really knew many of my second cousins. Jacob is luckier than I. He has a lot of second cousins that are close in age to him. Today we were invited to his first real kid party and it was his second cousin Charity's birthday. Charity turned 5, she is my cousin's oldest daughter and she has a younger brother who is 2. What fun they all had playing and eating cake, watching her open her presents. Jacob had lots of "oooo's" and "wow!". Quite a cute thing to hear actually. Even though I doubt he was that interested in the barbies he made all the right oo's and ah's over them! So God I'm thankful for the miracle of us living close to some of my extended family and that we have maintained a close relationship as adults now.
