baby Jonah in his first few days of life

i think Jonah knows it's his birthday...he was very excited about waffles this morning

my sweet baby Jonah is 1!

so much to say and so little time...
last year on this day at 8:02 Jonah decided to bless this world with his presence.
words don't capture the joy this boy brings. here is a little about my sweet boy at 1:

*he loves to give wet slobbery open mouthed kisses...alot!
*blows kisses, but forgets to actually blow them
*claps all the time, even in his sleep
*his favorite toy is a handle of any kind
*would rather climb on things than play or read
*runs (kind of...)
*loves to be thrown in the air - Papa does that best
*loves to be tickled in the ribs & has the best gut laugh when you do
*has the softest skin i've ever felt
*learned the sign for "more"....but has decided not to use it
*gives Mama the best hugs

i could go on and on... but i think i will do that elsewhere...maybe in a letter to my boy.

thank you, to all you who are in our "village", all who have participated in our boy's first year of life. the saying is so true, we have needed you and are so blessed by you.

more to come on Jonah's birthday....
