Happy Halloween!

I debated getting Jonas a costume this year, since he was too little to go trick-or-treating. However, I knew that years down the road I would regret not having pictures of him in some cute getup. Anyway, I couldn't resist this adorable monkey costume when I saw it. Based on the pictures, I think Mommy was a little more excited about it than Jonas was.

My attempt at pumpkin carving. I must say, they didn't turn out that bad:

The birth of a blog

It's official! I have joined the "blog-wagon."

I've honestly wanted to start one of these for over a year, but kept putting it off. I had a hard time convincing myself that people would actually be interested in reading my ramblings. Of course, that was before I had a kid. The moment the baby was born, I knew the rest of the world would want to spend every waking moment admiring all the adorable things he does (which is EVERYTHING, of course!) as much as I do. For the minority of you that don't agree (which is pretty much everyone, excluding grandparents), have no fear. I can guarantee that not every entry will be about the most recent grin, burp, or diaper the baby manifested all by himself (rolling of eyes and skeptic comments kept to yourself, please). Above all else, this blog is to show life, as it happens, the way I see it. Unfortunately, when you have a newborn along for the journey, it's hard to see much else. Buckle up; it's going to be a bumpy ride!
