Passed out!

Jonah had a super short nap yesterday afternoon, but didn't seem the least bit tired. So at dinner time I heated up his food, sat down to feed him, looked down at his bowl to get the first spoonful ready and when I looked up he was like this. I was like 'Are you sleeping?!!?' hahaha. Poor little guy, I put him in his crib for a catnap and 30 min later we started where we left off.

First Haircut

Jonah's hair was so long and in his face more and more that I decided it was time for his first haircut. I really wanted to wait till he was closer to 1 yr old, but with more and more people telling me how 'pretty she is' I thought it might be time to get it cut. So we went on Valentine's Day :)

Two of my friends recommended Cartoon Cuts at the Columbia Mall. They have a 'First haircut' thing, where you get a certificate and a small bag for their hair. Its cute and a nice keepsake. Plus, they are smart and each station has a little TV playing cartoons, so the kids are distracted and more likely to sit still.

He did AMAZING! for being 7mos old. He only fussed when she spritzed his hair with water and then at the end for about 10 seconds. But OMG..I'm so sad, he looks like a little boy and not a baby anymore!!! :( Plus, I knew his hair was getting lighter, but it is SO LIGHT now. All that beautiful dark black hair is gone. I know I needed to get it cut, but I'm still sad. Hes still a cutie though.

Waiting for Jonah's first haircut

Cartoon Cuts, pretty busy

In the chair like a big boy

Look cartoons! Bibi's getting ready to cut that beautiful hair :(

Doing SO great!

"Mom what happened to my hair!!!"

I survived and look like such a little boy!

Before and After.
I think I like it longer.

Blizzard(s) 2010

So we got SLAMMED the week of Feb 5-11th with snow. The first storm was Fri-Sat night and we got about 30in. 30 INCHES! We were out of power all day Saturday from 4am-9pm, which made me worry about Jonah being cold, so when it came on at 9pm I was SO relieved, it had started to get really cold in the house throughout the day . It took the plow 3 days, till Tuesday night, to come down our street, by then the fun had warn off and we really wanted to be able to leave our neighborhood. Our neighbors and we got so tired of waiting for the plow, we basically shoveled and snow blowed our way out to the main road, so we could go stock up on some items before the next storm hit.

We got plowed just in time for the 2nd storm to start Wednesday afternoon, which dropped another 18 inches. Being from Florida, its obvious for me to say I've never seen so much snow, but for Jon to say it, living his whole life here and even my neighbors, who have been in their house for 47 years, to say this is the worst they've seen is amazing. We spent a lot of time snow blowing our long driveway and snow blowing for some of our elderly neighbors, because that is really just too much snow to try and shovel when you're in your 70s!

So here are some photos, which, of course, don't do justice for just how much snow it really was and what storms they were! 2 blizzards in 1 week, just craziness. Jonah handled it well and got to see it first hand, although he won't remember it :)

Jon, tackling the first storm, 25in and falling.

Yes, those are our cars.

25 in at 8am in the morning, forecasted to snow till 3pm.

Checking out the damage.

Taller than my 70lb dog.

Almost as tall as my 100 lb dog!

Neighbors house, so much snow of the roof it 'avalanching' off.

Out our back door, Jon shoveled it so the dogs could get out.
