Jonah usually eats breakfast earlier, but mooches for more when Scott eats. Scott likes to feed him--like put the bites in his mouth. They both think it's great fun.
Melody and I did our 3rd 10k at our fastest time yet.
Scott liked the after snacks. Since we were some of the last runners in, they were pushing the food on us and the boys were happy to help. They both took apples--Scott takes little bites over the whole thing so it's polkadotted and Jonah will eat the entire thing (stem, seeds and all) if we don't watch him.
Jonah coming home from church.
John leaves for meetings at 5:30, so I get the boys ready for church myself. This day they slept late so we were in a rush to get to church on time, which I don't mind one bit because I prefer it over them getting up with John and then I have to get up when he leaves.
John builds these towers with blocks, then Scott and Jonah take turns knocking it over and they all love it.
I took this to show how messy Jonah can get from just eating fish crackers. We have a strict eat-in-your-chair rule and he's the reason why.
Running as fast as possible to the library. I'd like to claim their brilliance and love for literature, but it's really the fun, long ramp that makes them so excited.
We went to see John at work.
Jonah is always happy to see his daddy.
And his own self. He discovered this cute baby in the mirror at the mall.
At Happy Hollow, Scott actually rode on the carousel animal, rather than the bench that he typically prefers.
Jonah was fascinated by the anteater. He just stood there and watched him moving around.
Scott steered the ladybug for his ride with Jonah.
I took Scott out one Saturday morning for errands and I bought him a little kid-sized hot chocolate at Starbucks. It was so cute!
Scott likes "painting" with the aquadoodle my cousin sent them. I love it because it's mess-free. Jonah likes to play with the little character toys.
I squeezed Jonah into Scott's Christmas sweater. He looked great unless he moved around and his tummy poked out. He is so chunky!
Scott wanted to wear Daddy's shoes and made sure Jonah had some, too.
At the end of October it finally started to cool off a little, so I switched Jonah's bed to the flannel sheets, which are a Christmas print, and pulled out his matching blanket. I love them, so I like to get as much use out of them as possible each year.
Scott outgrew his Grinch jams and they're loose on Jonah, but we use them as a second pair to keep him warm when he gets out of his blankets at night.
Scott helped me make pizza dough and was just in his underwear. I asked if he wanted pants on and he said, "no tanks, just my ap-in." He probably likes his apron so much because it represents food coming soon.
Scott wore his Sharks jersey for costume day at dance class.
We usually watch the trash truck throuh the playroom windows now, but we were heading out so he had a nice, close view.
Scott still loves to vacuum, but now he wants to do it himself. If he were a little taller, the angle wouldn't be so off the ground and it'd actually be helpful. Of course he's cleaning pantsless and in a train costume.
I heard the water running while I was getting Scott dressed and wondered what on earth it was, since he and I were right there. I looked across the hall and this little trouble maker had climbed up to wash his hands.
Jonah was helping me pull laundry out of the dryer, then stopped. I turned to see where he was going and he was already up on the couch, 6 feet away. He gives me such bad anxiety.
We can't go anywhere without someone telling me I have my hands full. And I just say--yep.
