a day (five minutes) outside

It was an overcast, rainy day here today. But it was great, because the high was only in the 70's. And the five day forecast calls for more of the same. Outdoors here we come... hopefully.

We took Jonah out on the deck for a little bit after dressing change today, and this is what we saw on top of the neighbor's house.

Pretty cool, huh?


As soon as I got my camera, I got one shot of him perched on the rooftop, and then he took off.



This is our friend, Mary Helen, who helped with dressing change today.
Baby Jonut, enjoying being outside.

I'm loving all the new pictures of Jonah! The older he gets, the more he reminds me of Jakey. They have some very similar facial expressions ... especially in the recent "sleepy" pictures! Love you so much ... sending more Aquaphor your way this week.

Yay for cooler weather!! I hope you get more of it so you & Jonah can enjoy it:)

Sabrina said...

He is looking a little chunky today. Yeah Jonah! He is so cute! Glad you got to step out for 5 whole minutes. :)

Laura A said...

Look how big he's getting! He looks wonderful - I'd love to give him a big (gentle!) squeeze!!

Glad you made it outside. It's been raining for the last week or so here in TX, and as much as we need it, I'm ready for it to STOP! The cooler temps are certainly a plus, though.

Praying for a rest-filled night (even though it's your night, right?)

Love from TX!

Glad I am not exactly the first to say it, but my first thought was he looks like a cute chunky monkey. Those cheeks are adorable. My chunky monkey has slimmed down so much he looks like a string bean, and I miss those rolls. Hope you enjoyed your time outside.

KK said...

That is very cool! So glad he's getting to spend time outside.

Lori said...

Love the pictures. Jonah is so precious! I hope you get some rest tonight. Praying for all of you.

Man, Jonah for some reason looks huge in Mary Helen's arms. Good job, buddy! Keep up the eating and growing!

Personally I love the hot weather but I know it is detrimental to jonah and can make for long days when you can't go outside...so for you I am glad it is getting cooler so Jonah can enjoy the great outdoors!
I have been keeping up with Sam! Wow! This is so amazing! She is a courageous girl. I can't begin to imagine the pain she is enduring. She is pioneering the way! Who knows what the next 10 years hold for EB kids!

Love the pictures! He is so so so sweet! I think about him and pray for you guys every day!

I don't know what you've been talking about, this not eating business...that is one chunky little man you have there! Goodness, imagine if he ate properly he'd be a baby Buddha!!!

I love seeing him in all these cute clothes! His bandages looks like long sleeve thermal shirts under his t-shirts which is such a cool look for the fall...he's very hip that Jonut. Love him...and you guys too ofcourse.

Heather said...

He's looking so big! I hope you get some more time outside soon...so refreshing!

purejoy said...

so fun to be able to be outside. . . who ever thought of dreary cloudy days as a blessing (well, i do sometimes, but more often than not, i don't love gray)

so glad you were able to go outside and enjoy some time. and that little jonut is getting cuter by the day!!

I love when the weather turns a little cooler and its not so unbearably to be outside. Jonah is getting so big. I wish I lived closer and could help with a dressing change or two. Praying for you all.
