Jonah is 2!!!!!!

i am so very behind on posting about this oh so important event! Jonah turned 2! i don't know how it happened, it seems like only a few months ago he turned 1. 2 has proved to be such an amazing time for us. everyday i am amazed at what comes out of my boy's mouth.... i gotta be REAL careful about what i say these days. he is always listening.... or talking. there is a constant stream of commentary about what he is seeing & hearing, as well as what he wants you to do...."right now" or "so bad"!! my boy is so full of life, energy and joy & i am so honored to be his mama.

he had a week long celebration for his birthday, starting with a visit from Grammy and Poppy, then a little celebration with some of his friends & finally a day with our little family. our family day was jam packed with some of Jonah's favorite things..... started with pancakes and steamed milk (which he calls his "caffeine"), followed by a trip to the farmers market with lots of music and dancing. he wanted tacos for lunch - so Rita's it was. next on the agenda was the beach. we went to the jetty and saw the incredible 20 ft. (or something like that) waves that brings out all of Humboldt to witness. it was amazing & Jonah couldn't get enough of the beach that day. we ended the day with a short trip to Arts Alive - more music....surprise surprise! i think our boy loved the day & we loved every ounce of his enthusiasm. happy birthday Jonah!

more birthday fun

Grammy and Poppy came bearing gifts... Jonah was so excited to try out is new tricycle. of course he wanted to stand on it and help push too...

i asked Jonah what kind of cupcakes he wanted for his birthday.... he said pumpkin.

Dillon Beach

i feel like it has been so long since i've posted on here! i guess i have some catching up to do...

we got away for a beach weekend ( i guess we live at the beach, but it's always nice to see another spot of beach!) at Dillon Beach with our good friends. we stayed at a beach house within walking distance of a great stretch of beach. the sun even came out to greet us. Jonah, of course, loved every bit of this trip. he adores Auntie Lauren, Uncle Greg, Auntie Kam, and Uncle Jeff and talked about them the whole way home. his favorite part of the trip was surfing - yep, most definitely Nate's son!

more Dillon Beach

after Jonah got out of the water, his lips were blue and he was shivering like crazy but kept saying over & over "more surfin! more surfin!"
