Jonah jumpin' jumperoo

Jonah is really getting the hang of the jumperoo..still needs our wedding album for a platform, but not for much longer. So funny to see him really get into it, just wait for next month, he'll be all over the place!!

SNOW and a ton of it!!!

Jonah's first snow was nothing compared to his 6mo birthday snow! We got 21 inches! Thats crazy, especially for a native Florida girl. We had a great time showing Jonah the snow and pulling him around in his new sled. It was a great family weekend!

Hat/Scarf combo made by Aunt Mary! TOOOO cute!

Hes actually standing, thats how deep it was. The snow was holding him up.

Jonah's new sled our neighbors Dick & Joan gave us. He seemed
to have a good time, with lots of arm flapping, so funny!

Jonah's First Hanukkah

So Jonah's Uncle Stephen, Aunt Abby and cousins Lily and Eli came down from Vermont to celebrate Hanukkah with us and 'Mom mom' and 'Pop Pop'. The cousins had a great time together. Lily wanted to hold Jonah, which are the first few photos, then we got the 3 of them together. The cutest thing was at the end, Eli kept leaning over Lily to give Jonah a kiss. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of that, but it was so cute!

No, no....the other way

Well he only was able to squirm half of his 180 degrees before sacking out for today's nap.

eating solid cereal....

it's a bit long, sorry, we'll edit better in the future

First Christmas Tree

So after I put up the Christmas tree I tried to get some photos with Jonah in front for our Holiday card. I ended up using his first snow pictures instead, but these are just too cute not to post. Hes wearing his little 'My First Christmas' outfit, which is a bit hard to see since hes sitting in the bumbo.

Jonah Meets Santa Again!

We went to a holiday party and Santa came to visit! All the kids were so excited, Jonah was just trying to figure out what the heck was up with this guy with the beard that keeps showing up.


Ok, maybe hes ok.

Jonah Meets Santa

Work had a holiday party today and Santa was there...Jonah got to meet Santa for the first time. He did great, except I couldn't quite get him to look up at me, but he seemed to like the Santa snuggle.

Jonah's first snow!

Jonah's first snow! We didn't think it was going to stick, but I think we are already up to 2in. Dad is out in VA riding his bike, so we pulled out the bumbo to catch the moment.

He's trying to catch snowflakes with his tongue!

Out for the morning mail

Jon and Jonah went out for the morning mail..it was a little chilly and I guess dad didn't feel like grabbing a hat and jacket for the quick trip, so Jonah got to wear Jon's fleece jacket. Ha..how cute are my boys?!

Jonah just takes the bottle out of my hands these days....

Jonah's First Thanksgiving

Jonah's first Thanksgiving! We went to the in-laws, ('mom mom' and 'pop pop')'s house. It was just the 5 of us and then Aunt Aleza came a bit later. Not a big crowd this year, because visits had been made earlier in the year, so we're saving up for Christmas time. I haven't started Jonah on solids yet, so he just got to look at all the really good food. We had a great time.

The Feast!

Tummy time, practicing so we can learn to roll over!

Favorite Shirt

Jonah sitting in the bumbo wearing his favorite shirt (he told me so).


We registered for the Einstein jumper when I was pregnant and actually ended up taking it back and getting the Fisher Price Jumperoo after talking to my friend (thanks Kirsten!) and reading some reviews. The last few weeks we've felt Jonah has had good enough head control to sit in it. Its hilarious..hes can't even touch the ground, so we' ve put our wedding album under him so his feet will touch.
The more hes been in it the more he seems to enjoy it. I really like this one, because it doesn't take much to get the jumping going.

Bubba needs love

So Bubba, our big fat lover boy cat, was apparently in need of some attention because he came looking for it from Jonah. You know the cat is desperate when they will sacrifice fists full of their fur for some petting.

One of my favorite things is to give Jonah a bath. He loves the little whale cup that came with his tub and is totally fascinated when I let the water run out of the cup (its like a colander) onto his belly. He will hold his hands up under the water and feel it, which I think is so cool at not yet 5 months old. I, of course, think he is the most perfect little naked baby ever.

Luckily the bubbles were in a strategic location for his delicate sensibilities. :)

Dad strikes again: bathtime hair dos v.2

Looking cute on the play mat

I am just so in love with this little person, look how cute he looks on his play mat in his little stripped wool pants! Hes not rolling over yet, little bugger, but hes getting closer.

Lovin the bumbo tray

I like the bumbo chair, but if Jonah doesn't have something to focus on he just sort of slumps over and looks uncomfortable. So my friend suggested I get the bumbo tray, which is great because I can put toys on it and he sits up to play with them. He totally loves the ones that suction on the table.


Jonah didn't get to go trick or treating, obviously, he doesn't even have teeth! But he did get to dress up. How can you not partake of a holiday where you can torture your children and have photos to embarrass them with later?

Playing with Dad

This might not come over too great because it was taken with Jon's cell phone..but its too cute. Turn up your volume to really hear it. Its so funny. Indy had to check out what all the fuss was too. Haha.

The stare down...

Thanks GiGi!

GiGi found a cute jacket and pants on sale at Ross... it perfectly matched a
onesie I recently bought at Babies R Us. He looks like such a little boy :)

One smiley little boy

Look how doggone happy I am!

Looking sharp

Just a few photos from hanging at home with dad.

I have been getting better and better with tummy time. I don't think it will be long at all before I am making my way around.

I'm having so much fun trying to get to that musical caterpillar
