Three generations. I often think Jonah looks very much like Matt's dad.
Today was Jonah's first day ever wearing jeans. They have an elastic waist band so I didn't have to worry about zippers or buttons he would catch his hands on. I got them at Crazy 8, which is also where his monkey shirt is from. Aunt Kim got him his monkey shirt for Christmas and then I ordered every other boys' lap shoulder shirt they have the other day. They are getting really hard to find in the big sizes, but they work best for him because the necks are wide and stretch out and don't rub his forehead when we're putting them on or taking them off. These are 12-18 months and just barely fit him. I'm sad that he's outgrowing these. They are just perfect.
Since Granny and Grandaddy were here we let Jonah open his Valentines Day gifts from them and Aunt Kim and Uncle Andrew tonight.
Matt showed me only one page of this I Spy book, and it had a very freaky looking clown on it. So this one will have to be a Daddy and Jonah book because I do NOT. DO. CLOWNS. Jonah will totally dig it though.
Matt's parents kept Jonah last night, and we went out for Valentines. My mom and Shaina kept him earlier in the week and we went to the Wake vs. Boston College game. Twice in one week! WOOT WOOT! Last night we went to dinner at Bone Fish Grill (hooray for gift cards!), killed some time at Barnes and Noble, and then went bowling. We used to bowl in a league when we lived in Greenville and Matt, at least, was decent. I have always sucked. Last night we were both terrible. Bowling is not like riding a bike, apparently. We bowled three games, and my high was a 109. I won't tell you my other two because it was just embarrassing (as if 109 isn't bad enough). We had such a good time both nights though. It was much needed!
Random Thought of the Day: This isn't really random so much as amazing, but we got a little snow last night. That's not amazing... not this winter anyway. Yesterday afternoon, even before the first drop fell, lots of birds were coming to our bird feeder on the back deck to stock up. It was so crazy because I've only ever seen the three same birds (and two very pesky squirrels) at the feeder. It was Jonah's Christmas present from Pop (my dad), and I didn't think many birds had found it yet. But yesterday right before the snow, we had our two regular cardinals and our little finch, but we also had a wren or two, some crazy royal blue bird with a brown chest, and a few others. How do they know??? God is amazing.
On another random note, I am in love with this song from Dan Zanes and Friends Family Dance. It's in Spanish, and it is just GREAT! I love that whole CD actually. (It's mostly English.) Aunt Amy and Uncle Peyton gave it to us for Christmas, and really, it can brighten my whole day, and Jonah loves it too. Every song is just so good. But when this one starts up, Jonah looks straight at me so I'll start singing and dancing. And now, if he's in his exersaucer, he kinda hops up and down to the music too. It's the cutest.
