a happy weekend

This will be short, because, honestly, I just can't get enough of Friday Night Lights, and I'm ready to relax for the day. We've had a good day. Jonah did not throw up today, and he hasn't in several days. I know he probably will (he's overdue), but I'm thankful for the days he doesn't. Things are going much better. He's still not eating as much as he was by mouth pre-surgery, but he's definitely able to tolerate his tube feeds much better now. Thank you so much for praying for that specifically. I was so frustrated and overwhelmed at the beginning.

I just have to say how proud I am of Jonah. Every day it seems like he's learning new things, figuring things out, coming up with new sounds. Every month that passes, I'm like, "No, THIS is my favorite age." It definitely helps that he's napping one to two hours a day and sleeping all night. I'm much more awake to enjoy it all. But really, he's so much fun. He's somewhat of a mama's boy, for sure... There are times that is very frustrating, but I'd be lying if I said it doesn't make me feel so special. And as we know, it IS all about me. Kidding (just in case you didn't know).

Jonah crawled all the way across the rug today. He's pretty steady when he goes, but he's still timid about starting. It's so neat that he can crawl to the toy he wants instead of me choosing for him. He DEFINITELY has opinions. I'm hoping crawling can help him express them. But he already went for the power strip today, so I'm guessing it will probably just lead to more frustration on his part.

We got to go to my friend Gina's diner tonight, and we're going to Holly Springs tomorrow for Quinn's (Katie's youngest... you know, Jonah's girlfriend) first birthday. And Trent is in town too. I'm excited about a happy weekend.

Back to FNL. I'm addicted.

So glad to have helped inspire another Friday Night Lights convert! ALSO so proud of Jonah for getting all the way across the carpet, but you already know that. :) We'll have to talk FNL SOON!

I'm going to have to break down and watch it - I hear it's really good. I'm usually behind the times on the good shows - took me FOR.EV.ER. to start watching reruns of The Office!!

So proud of sweet crawler-man!! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Love from TX!

Your new design is GORGEOUS! Kudos to your web designer :)

I know what you mean about the "this is my favorite age"... I think that's my favorite part about parenthood; it just keeps getting better!
