first time at the park

On Sunday it was in the 60’s here (finally!), so we took Jonah to the park for the first time.

I won’t clog this post with words. He had a great time. As you can see…

Jonah is LOVING the warm weather! Wishing you a happy birthday a few days in advance. Jonah, you share a birthday with my own miracle son. My son Jason was born 6 weeks early and he had many developmental problems for a long time. But now, he is all grown up and doing fine. You are growing up so fast and I know your Mom and Dad are so proud of your accomplishments so far. Matt and Patrice ... the best is yet to come!

Love, Janet

He is so wonderfully adorable! I love, love, love it! He looks just like you, I think, and it's so darn cute. Yay for being outside! I love babies in swings!

He is so cute....it sure looks like he loves the park!

I have not really commented on your blog I don't think, but I do read it and pray for your sweet boy. I remember a post that you wrote a bit ago about buying the shirts for Jonah that have the special top opening(Lap Shirt). I know you said that it is harder to find sizes that fit him now that he is getting bigger so I have a suggestion/idea for you. I came across this free pattern for that type of shirt, but not in a onsie style, just the shirt. If you know someone that can sew perhaps they can make him some. You can even add your own cool graphics or silk screening or even appliques. it is just a thought that might be helpful to you. I have a son that is nearly the same age as Jonah and Owen has blue eyes and red hair. I am going to make my son some of these shirts because they look so cute and simple to make. The link is

Thank you for sharing your journey with Jonah. You are a wonderful Mother and He is one blessed boy to be loved so much.

Blessings! Jennifer

Glad he got some swing time in. Looks like you guys might have more snow. I was praying for you guys (and the auction) this morning and was worried I might not be able to "do it' but I will try out the tutorial and see if I can! Thanks for that!

I cam across your blog randomly and now I am just in awe, of your adorable baby boy, of your patience and love but most of all your faith through all the trials and gifts... You and your family is an inspiration, since I have read your blog I have thought of you most often, while I took my walk I dedicated my prayers to your son and family..
