Who does he favor? Part I

What do you think? I think Jonah favors his daddy a lot. Then sometimes when I see pictures of my brother as a baby I think he favors him. I guess it is possible that he looks like both.
Here's Darren and I. I am not sure how old we are...Darren is probably 5 or 6 and me somewhere around 1 or 2. I think Jonah favors me in this picture! Of course I look like a little boy, so that could be why!
Darren again around 1 or so. I wasn't even a glimmer in my mama's eye yet, and Jonah certainly wasn't a glimmer in anyone's eye yet! I still see some similarities.

Here's Darren at Easter. I'm guessing around age 2 or 3. So cute and so Jonah-like!

I just included this shot of Darren because he was walking at 9 1/2 months old. I also like the pic of my dad in the background. Mom said I walked at 11 months and I am just fine if Jonah waits a little longer. Of course I want him to be in the normal range, as early or late as that may be, but mama needs some time to get used to "crawling Jonah" before he becomes "walking Jonah."
I will have to scan in some pictures of Jeremy soon and you will see the resemblance to him too. I really don't care who he looks like, it's just fun to see these old pictures!

He's creeping...

I am about to be in trouble...

Don't you think? He's going to be into it all and fast at it!

Don't you just love a baby in pajamas?
I'm not tired, mom!
The reason he's so drooly? Check out those two bottom teeth.So Moms out there...when did you give your baby teething biscuits? Puffs? Anything other than baby food? Ive been reading up on it and it seems like it I should be giving him lumpier textured foods, but he acts like he doesn't like the chunkier foods. I'm sure he's just not used to it, but I wondered at what age are they ready to start mashing food.

I Don't

I've sat idly by and watched as Jenna over at Jenna's Journey has done her "I Don't" Wednesday. I've thought about participating, I've started to participate, but finally I have decided to play along. I honestly have a hard time coming up with things I Don't do...but I'll manage.

Jenna’s Journey Blog
  • I don't like a tangled mess of sheets on my bed when I get in them at night. It makes me crazy.
  • I don't like to make phone calls. I have to make myself answer my phone sometimes. Don't take it personally, its not you, its me.
  • I don't like sweet pickles. My husband's grandma makes her own and I hear they're wonderful, but I don't like 'em. I try them every year and nope, nothing has changed yet. Ditto on salmon and mushrooms.
  • I don't play games. I don't want to hop in on a game of basketball or volleyball. I am not interested in throwing a ball around the pool. I don't want to play the Wii. I'm sorry, its just not fun to me.
  • I don't like putting away laundry after its folded, or putting away the groceries. Those are just pet peeve chores that I don't particularly like!
  • I don't ever want to go back to school! I'm done with that chapter of my life (hopefully)!

Jonah pics galore!

I am a little behind. I have to say our summer has been busy. The weeks fly by to me. I feel like I finally get to the weekend and then it flies by too. I can't believe summer is coming to an end and I only have gotten in the pool twice. I keep telling myself that next summer I won't have a 6 month old and I can possibly enjoy the pool more! I know it will be harder to keep up with that little guy and I will not get any less busy. That's life.

What have we been up to lately? Well Jonah has hit a few milestones. We are eating baby food. I have made a little myself, but most of it I buy. He likes most everything, but does not seem to like peaches. I don't know why anyone wouldn't like a peach, but I will give him the right to not like it.This boy does like prunes. Everyone makes a face when they see he's eating them, but they're good for him and he likes 'em, so prunes it is! I mixed some avocado and bananas together and it really tasty, but he wasn't quite sure of the texture yet. I probably should have pureed it, but I just mashed. We'll try that again later!

He is also sitting up some. He is not so great at it for long periods of time, but for a few seconds he's got it! ha!Here Jonah receives some balancing help from the boppy and his toy basket!

Jonah has also been attempting to crawl. For the longest time, he would pivot on his stomach, then this past weekend, he started what my husband calls the inchworm. He pulls his knees up under him then tries to move his hands forward. I guess its a sort of army crawl.
Just put something in front of this baby he wants...and bam! he will inchworm on over to it. He's such a little man, he inches for the remote control, our cellphones, and the computer. He also loves to play in the basket that holds diapers in the living room.
Little guy also has a tooth. It is barely pushing through and it is giving him some real trouble. He hasn't slept well in the last week or so, which makes it hard on his momma! I am not a morning person anyway, but after a long night, all I can think is....coffee.

Jeremy and I have gotten our gym membership up and running again. I had been wondering how I was gonna make that work. So yesterday I took Jonah with me in the jogging stroller. By mile 2, he was snoozing.Yea! He likes the stroller for longer than 10 minutes now!

Now that I've gotten you caught up on Jonah, I'll catch you up on me. Yesterday after Jeremy met Jonah and I at the gym, he left earlier than us. When he got out to the parking lot he called me and asked me if I had my keys. I said that I did and he said, "well it doesn't do you that much good to lock your car and leave the back hatch open."
Yes I had gotten the jogging stroller out of the car and left the back hatch wide open. For over an hour. I guess I had other things on my mind. I am my mother's daughter (I only say that because not long ago, she left her car door wide open in a hotel parking lot and Jeremy just happened to walk by, see it, and close it for her.) Sorry to tell on you Mom.

Now that we've gotten Jonah sleeping in his own bed and in bed earlier, I've been able to do some sewing. I just finished some curtains for the living room and some bibs for Jonah.
I need some other ideas on craft projects for a boy. I've made bibs, burp cloths, peepee teepees and blankets. I can't paint or anything like that, so that's out of the picture. Anyone have any ideas? I'll be working on his Halloween costume soon!

On another note, Annual Girl's Weekend is coming up. This is the weekend when my two best friend's come up from Bryant to stay with me for a weekend. We spend all our time catching up, shopping, and eating. I CAN'T wait.

I hope you guys have had a great summer! I hope to catch up more often than this...I know I always say that, but I really mean it!
