Thursday, November 5, 2009
1. There were crowds of people.
2. Jonah got tired, hungry and fussy rather quickly.
3. I had to hold Jonah a long time because he wasn't happy sitting in his stroller waiting for our 5 seconds of fame.
4. My back and arms were killing me from holding Jonah for 2 solid hours.
5. There were crowds of people.
6. We were only on TV for 5 seconds.
Well, it is still up for debate as to wether or not this trip was worth it.... maybe we'll try again next year when Jonah can stand and not have to be held the entire time.
Here's Jonah all dressed up in his bumble bee costume in his stroller. This pic is in the train station on the way down to the Today Show. He looks thrilled to be up so early in his costume, doesn't he?
And here we are on the Today Show... our 5 seconds (that's pushing it) of glory. Jonah is half asleep at this point and you can't really see his feet, but one of his socks had come off and his pant leg was all bunched up... I didn't have much time to prepare him once I realized the camera was going to be on us.
The past two weekends we have had out of town guests! Yay for guests!
Two weekends ago we had my dear friend, Courtney, come stay with us. She is a friend of mine from nursing school. I am so thankful to stay in touch with friends from college. I cherish those friendships!
We had a great time during her visit. One thing we did is go up to the Harlem Meer in Central Park for a 'Pumkin Sail'. It was a little bit disappointing to be honest, but we still had fun. We dressed Jonah up in his halloween costume for the event, so of course there are lots of pictures!
Our first stop after my parents arrived in NYC was to Home Depot, one of my Dad's favorite stores... we had to get the needed supplies to get some stuff done in the apartment.
Jonah was very curious about the work that 'Papa' was doing. He definitely wanted to help put up the shelves!
Jonah and 'Grammy'
Jonah with his Grandparents (and the giant turtle) at the Natural History Muesem.
Papa pretending to rescue Jonah from the giant turtle.... Jonah is quite oblivious :)
We wore Jonah out.... we fed him a bottle in Central Park on the walk home from the Natural History Muesem.... he fell asleep while Mark was burping him. How precious.
