over the past month, despite all of his craziness and energy, Jonah has turned into quite the cuddly boy. his new thing is to lay his head on my chest and shove his arms under my armpits and hold me tight. it's my favorite! here are some random pics of my sweet boy...

wedding at the Straw House

this past weekend we went to Jim & Stefanie Savage's wedding at the Straw House in Big Flat...gorgeous! sunny and beautiful. for those of you who have never been to the Straw House, it is this cute coffee shop / cafe right on the Trinity River - you really should go. the wedding was beautiful. Jonah did great. i was afraid he would have a running commentary throughout the ceremony, but he only made a couple additions. i don't think we have ever fed him so many rice cakes! but it kept him occupied through the vows. he even behaved himself while dancing with the Bride. he is such a social boy!

welcome to the Ask Family blog

to those of you who may not know, Nate and i welcomed our sweet baby Jonah to the world last November. he is now 10 months old & i have no idea where all that time went! so the majority of this blog will be about Jonah... he is a very entertaining boy.

the newest excitement in Jonah's world is the walking phase. just the other day he took a few steps on his own & everyday since the distance gets a little longer. here is today's longest journey...

this is a short first post because we just sent out an e-mail about our eventful summer. we'll be sure to keep you posted on the happenings in our lives heading into Fall & would love to hear from all of you!
