Great photos! Thanks for sharing! I am so glad that you had them taken. Great memories too! Can never have enough photos. By the way, I went to chic fil a today. Did you ever take Jonah's picture so that we can go vote on him? It occurred to me today that I had not voted but then I can't remember if you took his picture and entered it!

I wonder if the air of the sea has been improving his skin alot?? It is the impression I have looking at the pictures and having seen the first ones on you friends blog(or cousin or sister or... sorry I do not remember!)

I am officially going through Jonah withdrawal. Last night I went back through all the pictures from the beach and just melted over each one with Jonah in it. He completely stole my heart! Already looking forward to Thanksgiving!

Trace Car Driver said...

jonah is a doll baby. glad ya'll are enjoying the beach!
southern love and prayers from alabama!

Heidi said...

I have to say, Jonah is a beautiful baby! The shape of his face and those big round eyes are perfect. It's nice to see his fingers. May god bless this little boy and as he grows may the EB diminish.

nancy said...

How can anyone say which pic is their favorite?? I have been studying them and there is something about everyone one of them that makes them my favorite!
You should do a wall set with them! They are awesome pics!
Oh, I have had 2 people ask me about my Jonah decal this week and I was so excited to tell them all about Jonah and what little bit I know about EB. One of them was like ok, calm down nancy, we got the point! But they really don't have the point unless they know all of the details about him, Gabe, you and Matt!
Hope you have maybe caught up a little since vacation and getting some rest. I still pray for you all every night:)

Kristin said...

Patrice,

I've been meaning to send you a note for quite some time. I'm Gary Wheeler's sister in Jax, FL. We have been praying for you, Matt, Jonah & Gabe for a while.

I want to publish this comment to see if you or any of your readers have any insight for us. I have become a fairly new user & BIG fan of Facebook. A long time ago, I posted a link to your blog on my wall. I wanted to help create awareness of EB, solicit even more prayers for Jonah & to just share your story. WELL, it's working! For some crazy reason, every time you post a note to your blog, my wall is updated with the note, but with my picture. I have no idea how this happens! I have gotten lots of questions & comments from friends. (BTW, a friend from CA is praying for Paul & his family & wants to get involved with Young Life). Another friend asked if I had adopted a baby with special needs. Again, I am grateful that I've been able to help share your story, but have caused confusion since it's my picture & your comments appearing on my wall.

Patrice, I so admire your faith & trust in God. I LOVE your sense of humor & your MANY gifts & talents! I love the connectedness that I feel to you & your beautiful family. Please know that we continue to pray for you & follow you on your journey.

Have a great day!
Wishing you God's grace.
With Love,
Kristin, Mike, Sam, Julia, & Andy

ps...we cruise around Jax with a blue Jonah magnet on the back of our minivan :)

I love the 3rd one. And #4 is great too, it looks like Jonah is saying, "yeah, I know I'm cute."

Mommy Attorney said...

Beautiful pictures! I can't believe how chubby Jonah is! So adorable! That baby chub falls off so fast once they start moving, so enjoy the nibbles on the cheek while you can.

the-mommy-person said...

Love Jonah! Great pics. Proud of him for sleeping through the night and happy for you guys. :)

Red said...

You have a lovely family and exhibit great strength.

asplashofsunshine said...

His eyes are gorgeous!!! WOW! And those cheeks... the most adorable on the planet. Thank you for sharing your story, and your sons with us.
