Knitting Books

A boy after my own heart. I decided to spend part of a rainy afternoon flipping through a couple of my knitting books for inspiration. Apparently J has inherited his mama's love for the fiber arts (or he's REALLY smitten with the red-headed model). He snuggled up right next to me and wouldn't stop flipping through the pages of one of my books.

Out With The Old, In With The New

We FINALLY got Jonas his new car seat a couple of weeks ago. (You know it's bad when the poor kid's feet are hanging over the end!) He's now cruising in a much bigger seat and facing forward, which has made car rides a lot more fun for both of us. Just to put into perspective how much he's grown, check out the pictures below. The one on the left is from Jonas first trip in his car seat (when he came home at 12 days old). The one on the right is Jonas' last time in his car seat (at 11 months old).

Looking back, I laugh at how many washcloths the nurse and I had to roll up and stick in various spots so Jonas wouldn't move around. Had he been a couple ounces lighter, his car seat would have been too big for him!

First Zoo Trip

Okay, okay...so we have been having a little too much fun living life that updating the blog has fallen to the wayside. However, in the shock that has hit me over how fast Jonas' first year flew by, I have turned over a new leaf and am diligently going to do my best to keep up with the blog. I my humble attempt to make up for the last month, I present you with pictures of Jonas' first trip to the zoo.

I am fortunate enough to have some good friends that are moms and teachers, and some that are moms that stay at home. As a result, we've been lucky enough to have weekly play dates this summer. A couple weeks ago our playdate took us to the zoo. I was so excited because I LOVE the zoo and I couldn't wait to take Jonas and introduce him to the animals. Although, once we got there, he was just as content with watching the big kids run around and admiring the ceiling fans in the observation houses.

All in all, it was a great trip! We can't wait to go back again, hopefully with Daddy!
