I just tucked in Jacoba.  That will be the last time I tuck in a 3 year old Jacoba.  Tomorrow she is 4.

As a young boy I thought I was going to have a daughter named Jacoba.  But I didn’t think that she would be the most beautiful 3 year old ever.

Jacoba is a firecracker.  She doesn’t back down from anyone.  It is a good feeling for a father of such a beauty.

Jacoba once told Marisa that she would love her for 100 years.  It gave Marisa joy. 

Jacoba is good at giving joy.  She got skill that from her mother.

Happy Birthday kid… I love you and will protect you.
