No Fear

As I sit here typing this, Jonah is climbing to the top of the coach (you know, the backrest part) and sliding down. He lands with a thud, giggles, and does it again. (But wait! Don’t call the police and tell them I’m neglecting Jonah…Ray is sitting on the couch with his super-fast reflexes at […]

18 Months

I just love this picture! Jonah made it clear that he wanted to have both cups (I gave him a choice) and proceeded to carry both of them around and drink from them. He is becoming so funny! Today we took Jonah for his 18 month check-up. He’s grown! At one point Jonah was in […]

I am THAT mom…

The first playdate was such a success that my friend Krista and I decided to take the kids to the toddler playground at the mall and eat a little Chick-fil-a lunch. So off we went, and the kids had a blast! Jonah was feeling especially brave today and headed straight for the slide. Instead of […]

Winter Wonderland…sorta

The weatherman actually got it right today…sorta. They missed the part about 2 inches, but then again, they have a large area they’re covering so maybe somebody out there got 2 inches…but we didn’t, unfortunately. The weather reports said it would start with rain and turn to snow. While we were at Parent’s Day Out […]

Letting Go…

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a little while, their hearts forever.” This quote was swirling around in my head this week as I watched Jonah take a step closer to growing up. In true Sara fashion, I have enjoyed bumming around the house in my pajamas too much lately. And now that Ray is […]

I wanna bite…

Anyone that’s been around Jonah knows he’s a great eater…we have been so blessed! Peas, carrots, green beans, peaches, pineapple, you name it…he’ll eat it! (The only thing he doesn’t like so far are hot dogs. WEIRD.) The other little thing about Jonah and eating…he begs…like a dog. It’s pretty funny. Any time Ray or […]

Little Dancin’ Machine

Jonah loves music these days! Any time the radio or tv plays a catchy tune you can find him shakin’ and a groovin’! We thought you might like a sample of the little dancin’ machine…

Trains, Tantrums, and Temperatures…

Our Christmas day began at 5:30 (much earlier than we had hoped) with Jonah crying and running a fever. I gave Jonah some medicine, turned on the Christmas lights and settled in the recliner to wait for Ray to get up and open presents with us. Jonah and I watched a little bit of the […]

Choo! Choo!

We’ve been trying to get a good picture for our Christmas cards, but having a VERY mobile and, at times, a very uncooperative 17-month old doesn’t help. I’ve taken almost 200 pictures over the span of 2 “photo shoots” in front of our tree. Jonah either wants to turn his back to the camera and […]

It’s about time…

Ever since Jonah was born we’ve tried to figure out a way to be better at sharing news and pictures with our friends and family…fast forward 16 months and we’re still trying to figure it out! It never even occured to us to try a blog, but the more we’ve thought about it, the more […]
