New toy

(for some reason I can only type with center alignment, wierd)

Anyway, Chris put together Jonathan's Jumperoo last night, and of course I had to take some pictures of his first experience. He loves it! I think it's the freedom of it as he seems to have grown tired of just "laying" all the time. He prefers to be "standing up", whether it's in his Exersaucer or now his Jumperoo. For the most part, the swing, the bouncy seat & the floor mat just don't cut it any more. Oh well, whatever makes him happy!

First cereal

We gave Jonathan cereal for the first time last night. Well, the first time with a spoon anyway. As you can see, he really liked it. I think we're just going to replace his cereal in his last bottle for a few days, and then work our way up to a couple of times a day. Then we're going to start veggies! I'm sure we'll have some great pics of that, so stay tuned.

I took a couple of videos of Jonathan yesterday. The first one is him rolling over, and the second one is him "talking" after he rolled to his belly. This kid is a rolling machine! Almost as soon as I lay him down on his back, he flips over, and then after a couple of minutes he gets frustrated & wants to be on his back again. Silly boy. I guess he's forgotten how to flip from his belly to his back. Watch out once he figures it out though! He'll be rolling across the floor in no time. Where did my tiny baby go?

A day of firsts

It was such a beautiful day today, so we went to the park with Lisa & the girls. It was Jonathan's first time at the park, and of course his first time in a real swing. He loved it. I have a bunch more pictures, but I thought I'd share this one since it's the best.

Another first... Jonathan rolled from his back to his belly twice today! I can't believe how fast he's growing up. Not so much a little baby anymore.

Some layouts & whatnot

It's amazing how much more scrapbooking I can do now that I have Jonathan as the cutest subject in the world! The last two Saturdays, Chris has watched 'little boy' while I've gone to Archiver's to scrap with the girls. I'm so blessed to have a husband who loves spending time with his son, and doesn't mind me being gone ALL DAY. Two Saturdays ago on the 10th, I met up with Lisa, Rebecca, Kimberly and Laurel. We had such a good time, chatting and being creative. Poor Rebecca, she had a slight chair situation and fell on her bottom. Thankfully she wasn't hurt (too badly) and we all had quite a chuckle. We were all wishing we had our cameras to document the event, but to Rebecca's delight, no one had brought one.

Although we were there for 12+ hours, I only completed 2 layouts. How sad is that? Here are the two I did:

I was quite honored to have Kimberly do a layout for me. She's on several design teams, and has been published in some magazine. She's a celebrity in my eyes! Love ya, girl! She did Jonathan's one month picture:
This last Saturday, I planned ahead a little more & was able to get four layouts done. It still doesn't sound like a lot, but when you consider that I did two make & takes, went to lunch, and spent God only knows how long on one of them doing measurements, it's not too bad. Here are the ones I did this weekend:

I'm sorry the quality of these aren't too great, but my scanner won't do 12x12, so I have to just take pictures of them & hope for the best. I also altered a notebook cover, but I didn't take a picture of it. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.

In other "news", we took Jonathan back to the doctor yesterday. He's been coughing for several days now, and had started sounding congested, so I called the office & they thought it would be best if we brought him in to get checked out. I guess they've had a lot of RSV going around, and didn't want to take any chances. RSV is a scary, scary thing, so I was all for going in. Thankfully, all was well, and it's just a little cold or something. She said his lungs sounded good and his ears looked good, so we just kind of need to ride it out. We bought some saline drops to use on his nose to help get the "boogies" out, and boy does he hate it. I feel so bad for him, but we have to do it.

Today Lisa and I went to the Kidsignments sale. It's basically just a huge consignment sale. I was amazed at all of the toys & clothes that they have. You can really rack up & get some good stuff for really inexpensive. For example, they had some bouncy seats for like $2.00! Unbelievable. I got Jonathan several outfits today & only spent about $37.00. I'll probably go back when they have the next one in August & get him some "stand up" toys. He's not ready for them yet, but he should be by then.

Game night is this Saturday, and I'm really excited. Chris and I bought a new game the other night, Scene It: Squabble, and it looks like a lot of fun. It pits men against women in pop culture questions. We always play men vs. women anyway, so it should be interesting.

One last thing... Congratulations to Michael & Lisa! They found out last Friday that they're having a girl! That will make three girls for them, and I know they're excited. We can't wait to meet you, newest Clavell!

My, this was a long one. I'm off to bed now, have a great night!

He's a growing boy

4 months old! Can you believe it? We had Jonathan's 4 month check up today and he's doing very well. He's up to 15 lbs 15 oz (might as well say 16 lbs) and 25.5 inches long, the 75% for both. He must finally be slowing down a little because at his last appointment he was in the 90-95% for both. We had a little photo shoot yesterday to commemorate his "birthday". There weren't any shots that just completely blew me away, so we may have to try again in a day or so. Unfortunately he also had to get 4 shots today, my poor baby. He is usually napping at the time we were at the office, so he was starting to get a little grouchy. He had just fallen asleep when the nurse walked in to do the immunizations. He did really well again, just cried for a couple of minutes. He was asleep in about 2 minutes once we got him back in his carseat.

Chris and I went to Nagoya Japanese Steakhouse for lunch today, in celebration of Valentine's Day. It was soooooooo good. Tomorrow will mark 10 years since Chris and I got together. What a wonderful 10 years it's been, I can't wait to celebrate 10 more. I love you honey!

I guess I'd better go get dinner started....

Trying something

My red-headed "monster"

My red-headed "angel"

I'm trying a feature of Picasa that Rebecca told me about. All you have to do is click on the picture & then hit "Blog This". It's really easy. Y'all may be seeing a bunch more pictures now. My mom just sent me an email yesterday asking me to post pictures more often, so she'll definitely be happy.

Such a big boy!

Super Bowl Sunday...

and we're having a party! Well, I don't know if you'd really call it a "party" but Michael, Lisa, Kevin, Pam & all the kidlets are coming over to watch the game. Rebecca was going to join us too, but she's sick, so she decided not to come. I hope you feel better! I imagine that the boys will probably do most of the game watching & the girls will do most of the chatting. That tends to be how it goes down. I really enjoy football, so I may try to catch some of the action. And of course there are the commercials. That's half the fun of watching the game, it's always fun to see what they come up with each year.

I woke up with a cold yesterday. How does that happen? I was perfectly fine Friday, went to bed, and woke up feeling crappy yesterday. I just don't get it. Chris was wonderful as usual & agreed to take Jonathan to church with him this morning so I could take some NyQuil & get some rest. I'm eternally grateful. He then stopped at the store & picked up some cold & sinus medicine. This man is my hero, I tell ya.

A couple of nights ago I went to check on Jonathan before I went to bed, and he was sideways in his crib! I wish I'd taken a picture of him, but I was afraid it would wake him up. If it happens again, I'll definitely get one. Speaking of pictures, here's one from the other day when he was playing in his Excersaucer for the first time. He really liked it!

Well, everyone should be here any time, so I'd better get going. Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!
