twitter chronicles

I'm trying to watch Valentine's Day, so I don't have many words. But in case you missed these photos on Twitter, I just wanted to show you our beach trip through the eyes of our cell phones.

Jonah was so great on the way down to the beach. This was when we stopped to tube feed him. We gave him a short break from the car seat (very short because it was SO hot), but he was a happy, happy boy. I don't know why his head looks abnormally large in this picture. So cute though.

This was after day one in the pool. At home we do breakfast, dressing change, nap. At the beach we did breakfast, pool, dressing change, and then nap. Apparently we wore him out. He fell asleep sitting up.

He was so great the whole trip, despite being a little clingy at the beginning. This is what we saw most of the time.

Matt, Jonah, and I went to three grocery stores in search of these: Cheerwine filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts. They're only being sold in NC and SC for a limited time. Nothing says North Carolina like
Cheerwine and KK doughnuts, but I have to say, they weren't great. Love them separately. Together, not so much.

And here is the alligator that
could have attacked Matt on Friday night, but kindly chose not to.

And this was at Granny and Grandaddy's house on Sunday before we headed home. We were trying to keep him up and feed him lunch first, so he'd sleep in the car. As you can see, it did not quite work out that way.

We've had a good day today. Nothing much to report. Hopefully something more exciting this weekend. So glad it's almost Friday.

Very nice pics! That gator one is disturbing though. His head might looks big because of lens distortion--if you have a short focal length and are really close, you can distort things a bit. I think it's fun--I have shots of our youngest daughter eating ice cream last year that that happened on and I love them.

Enjoy Valentine's Day. Haven't seen it yet.

Patrice, he is looking so good. Like such a big boy. I even feel proud being a complete stranger and just seeing where you all have been and where you all are now. That face of his says it all. Just wanted to say congrats to you all for being such a great example. Love following your story and seeing the love and joy in Jonah's face. Hope you have a great weekend!
