This is Juliana.
And her sister, Jasmine.
They are ten months old and ON. THE. MOVE. It really made me realize how slow Jonah crawls. Honestly, I'm okay with it. :) It was so neat to see them be able to move and explore and get to what they wanted (quickly!). Jasmine loved the stairs and was SUPER fast. Juliana was all about Deac and just followed him everywhere. He was only partially amused.
It was hard to get them all three in the same frame, but they finally converged at the activity table.
And at one point, we just had a roundup. This was the only shot I got that didn't include the top of one of their heads.
I thought this one was adorable. What's that? Where's Jasmine?
Oh, there she is... enjoying some shoes and diaper salve with Jonah.
Jonah and one of his best buds, Kathryn.
Then, on Friday evening, we met our friends, Shawn and Jen (who, for some reason, were Jawn and Shen every time I said their names on Friday... it was a slow brain day.) Anyhoo... the Winston Salem Children's Museum has some $3.00 Friday nights, so Shen invited us to come along.
Shawn and Jen's little boy, Jude. He's four months older than Jonah, and I have high hopes that they'll be best buds.
I think the daddies had more fun than the (littler) boys.
This was a Scarf-Shooty-Outy thing that you could put soft balls and scarves in. It would shoot them all through the tube...
and then they'd pop right out.
Jonah was not amused with his hard hat (along with most of the rest of everything we did).
Jonah pushed the trucks. Jude went with a less conventional approach.
I don't know where this was, but it was soft and padded, so we hung out there for a while.
More of being NOT amused.
He did take a break of being Fussy McCrabby pants to play the laser harp.
But then he was back at it for Daddy's photo-op. (Matt may or may not have just shoved Jonah under Carmen's utters for some practice milking thus inducing a screaming fit, I couldn't rightly say.)
Jude loved the kitchen area. Steak in a bowl. Spaghetti straight on the table. Stacking the larger cup INSIDE the smaller cup. This boy lives on the edge.
"What's that? You wanna look up my nose?"
Driving the Krispy Kreme truck. Did you know Krispy Kreme started in Winston Salem? You're welcome, America. For those of you who don't know Krispy Kreme, you better hope you never taste a KK doughnut. You'll hate yourself for wasting all those years with your measly Dunkin' Donuts.
Anyway, we stayed for about an hour and a half, and even though Jonah wasn't so into it, I was still so glad we went. The more we get Jonah out and experiencing new things, the more he'll get comfortable being other places besides our house. And I LOVE getting to spend time with Shawn, Jen, and Jude. I think the six of us (almost SEVEN!) are going to check out the Greensboro Children's Museum next month. They have $5.00 Friday nights and are even better. Hooray for fun outings and new experiences!
