10.5 months.

What we love about Jonah at 10.5 months:
  • This baby is a love. He especially loves his momma. I call him my little koala bear.
  • He crawls like a pro.
  • He has 2 bottom teeth.
  • We still get comments on his hair every time we go out. It is pretty rad and I've decided I can't cut it again...anytime soon.
  • He goes to sleep promptly at 7, any later and he reminds us that it's past his bed time. Usually he wakes up at 5, nurses, then sleeps till around 7.
  • Loves to kissssssssss.
  • He does this funny head bump thing to other babies, and his family. Kind of like how a cat says hello; bumps foreheads!
  • Sucks in his lips like a little grandpa when he is teething.
  • Favorite foods: BLUEBERRIES, bananas, noodles, avocado, black beans, rice, tortillas, rolls, anything on the floor!
  • His favorite toys are the Wii remotes. Ugh! He also likes his new piano he got for Christmas!
  • He LOVES his lovies! Soft blankets, soft toys, soft stuffed animals. He needs something soft and lovely to fall asleep.
  • He has the most contagious laugh and is so full of joy!!
  • Body=perfection. I kiss it all day long!!
We Love you Joege, JoJo, Joey, TuTu, ChooChoo, Jonah. You are a bright shining LIGHT!


Climb to the sky.

I have so very much to blog about before I get to our Christmas posts so I better get going! Rowan has turned into a climber, just like his Daddy. It sure gives me a heart attack, but I'm trying to do better at letting him explore...safely... We went to our favorite park the other day and Ro asked if he could ppplease climb the big tree. He got up there and said "I climb the sky!" We laughed and said go for it bud!!

 Hold on tight baby boy. When did he get so big?!

Baby Jesus.

Look what Rowan "made" in nursery last Sunday! I love it. What creative nursery workers.

On a side note: Rowan is in lovvvvvve with nursery after a few months of bad separation anxiety. We can hardly get him to come home!


I just loved these little notes maya wrote for each of her cousins on Christmas. We will cherish it!
"To Rowan, Merry Christmas. I love you because you're my cousin!" Love, maya

What a treasure!

Good effort...

I wonder who's chore it is to put away the silverware.... He does it as fast as he can so he can get back to playing. Think we'll have to have a talk about quality work... :)

A child's prayer.

Rowan said his first solo prayer tonight and I had to write it (type it) down right away. I never want to forget sweet moments like these. Ro has been repeating our words for family prayer for some time but tonight I asked him if he wanted to say it all by himself. He said "Yes!". It went something like this..." Fader (father), go-man (thank you) thsgdndkdmand church, dhaunfkdjsms help us, djdjdlsmsbajdn, dada, djdkdhsbdn joege (Jonah), fjsmakanzb mama, shandlfnsjs bed sweep (sleep), Jesus chwist, amen!" I cried. Even though most of it was unintelligible it was the sweetest prayer to ever fall upon my ears. My baby.
