Playdate




Jonah and I had a playdate with some friends this past week. The temps were a bit cooler than we expected, but we still had fun. As you can see from the pics, the 'Great Lawn' at Central Park was kind of empty. We thought it was kind of cool that Jack and Jonah were just about the only ones out there.... so we had to catch a few pictures of it! Our city boys.. (but we know they are southerners at heart).

Cheap Entertainment




This is the fun Jonah had today with my J.Crew catalog. He giggled and giggled at himself as he tore up the magazine.

Will work for milk


Jonah has just started 'earning his keep' around here.

Storage unit

This past weekend we borrowed a car from some of our friends and headed out to our storage unit in East Hanover, NJ. Oh the joy! What a good excuse to get out of the city, right? We have to store our 'off season' clothes in the storage unit because we don't have enough room in our apartment. We only have two closets in the apartment (including the pantry, which serves as a pantry, coat closet and storage area), so needless to say, there is not much room for access clothing.

Since we were headed to the storage unit, we decided to take Jonah's baby swing and put it in the storage unit. This is sad, I know, he's not using the swing anymore... he literally outgrew it! So, off we went to the storage unit. Of course, we managed to make time for some non-NYC things, like Panera Bread, Chick-fil-a, and a regular suburban-style mall. Oh the little things in life! :)

Well, anyways, while we were at the not so well organized and overstuffed storage unit, I wasn't sure what we were going to do with Jonah. He would scream if we left him in his car seat during the time it took us to rumage through the 'junk' in the unit and find what we needed. We didn't have a stroller with us because we were planning to buy a new one later in the day, and I didn't love the idea of Jonah crawling around on the concrete floor of the Public Storage facility (although I'm sure he would have totally loved it). So, how convenient that we had the swing with us. Jonah sat and played in his swing for the last time (tear, sniff, sniff) in the 'hallway' of the storage unit. Here's a picture to document the "fun".


Unfortunately, we somehow managed to forget to get our winter coats while we were at the storage unit. I believe we did make it home with all the winter clothes, but no coats! How could we forget such an important item? From the picture, you probably get the idea that our storage unit is highly organized... well, think again.... so really, its not too surprising that we forgot the winter coats, they were probably barried under one of a million items we have stored there. I guess we'll have to make another trip out of the city in the near future. (sarcastic tear, sniff, sniff).

Peek-A-Boo and Crawling!

This post is a little overdue, especially the crawling video. Jonah has been crawling for at least a month now and I am finally posting a video of it. The other video is of Jonah playing 'Peek-a-Boo'. He instigates this now and its so cute. Luckily, Mark caught it on video. Enjoy.

Gap Baby?

So, I entered Jonah's picture into the 'Gap Casting Call' contest. They are looking for the next Gap baby. I'm not getting my hopes up, but it sure would be fun for Jonah to be a Gap baby!

What I need for yall to do is go to the website, create a login, and then vote for Jonah. In fact, I need you to vote for him once a day until Nov. 17th. So, if you will click here to VOTE for Jonah.
Thanks for your support! Jonah appreciates it :)

To cut or not to cut......

To cut or not to cut... that was the question. Well, we decided to cut! I was a little nervous about this, but I am so glad we went ahead and got Jonah's hair cut! It looks so cute. Not that he wasn't cute before, obviously, but I really like the neat trimmed look in the back. He definitely looks a little more boyish and a little less babyish. He's just growing up too fast!
Jonah did really well during the hair cut. He did move around a little, but there were plenty of distractions. He sat in a seat that was a little play car and had a steering wheel. He also watched an Elmo video, although he wasn't really paying any attention to it. We blew bubbles for him, which did entertain him a little, but the thing that really got his attention was Mark talking to him and showing him the Elmo DVD case. Mark would open it really slowly and say 'look Jonah, what's inside................(open slowly)......................absolutely nothing!' then Jonah would just sit there and watch him do it again. Isn't that funny! ?
Well, here are a few pictures of the grand event! The place we got his hair cut even gave us a little certificate and a lock of his baby hair. How precious... something for the baby book.
