Jacob, Pulling Our Leg

Some of you may remember the story of Jacob and Esau from the Bible. They were twins and Esau came out first but Jacob was born holding his brother's heel, as if trying to pull Esau back so Jacob could be born first. The name Jacob means trickster and the story is the origin of the phrase "you're pulling my leg." Our Jacob lives up to his name and loves to play tricks. We knew Jacob was returning to his previous form when we FaceTimed Susan the other night and asked about Jacob. He was sleeping, she informed us, then she showed him to us. Grace said, "he's not really asleep; he's faking it." Just the Jacob jumped up from the bed and screamed BOO! which made us all jump out of our skin, even Grace. It was hilarious. I missed out on the actual BOO! but I did manage to capture the response.
