A Boy and His Harp

Jordan taught Jonah how to play the harmonica! This Tennessee baby definitely has some bluegrass in him. 

Also, it was laundry day and the end of the day with a toddler. Don't judge our house.

Birthday Part Dos

More pictures from the little man's family party. Grandma Mabry was nice enough to decorate for him and make it a very special day! We also tried to celebrate mine and J's birthday, but let's be honest... no one was going to steal Jonah's thunder. The party was all his!

My dad is the most impatient person EVER when it comes to presents, and Grandpa couldn't hold in his excitement for very long, so most of Jonah's gifts were just opened and given to him in a giant mass. What a goof :)

Thanks to our family for spoiling our little man (and us, always) and for hosting such a fun time!

Cheer up, Charlie!

The typical first birthday cake smashing!

Buddy Turns One!

Here are some photos from Jonah's special celebrations!

On his actual birthday, Jonah's Grandma, Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa, and Great Aunt came to take him to Wendy's for a frosty and spoil him with presents.

He got Finding Nemo bath toys, a cool dump truck riding toy, and a firetruck (that is the loudest toy we own... and he loves it. Naturally).

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to the pumpkin patch at Vertuccio Farms. We had tons of fun, and it was marvelous getting to spend some family time together (it is hard to come by these days).

We spent most of the time going down slides, paying visits to all of the different animals, climbing on hay and pumpkins, and riding the barrel train. Jonah enjoyed himself, but I think he was mostly confused. He may still be a little too young. High hopes for next year!

There was a corn maze, too, but we decided that was a little much and just kept imagining getting half way through and the little man having a meltdown.  

Side note: Notice how we are all in shorts... It was probably about 87 that day. Okay, cool weather. Aaaany day now. I have been wearing the same summer clothes for eight months, and I am ready to put them under my bed and never look at them again (or at least until March). Plus, Jordan is gonna lose it if we have to turn our air conditioning on in the middle of November.

Here are some pictures of our "Fall" adventure!

Measuring our little (big) man!

 This one makes me laugh so hard. What is the point of taking super unflattering photos if you are the only one that gets to see them? Enjoy, my friends :)

We both tried our hand at the Strong Man test. Jordan got a 9 (woo woo!). I got a 4 (wah wah waaaah).


Two hunky dudes just learnin' about corn!

We have some videos to  post soon, so stay tuned.

We have plenty of fun things to post about, but really we've just been trying to keep our heads above water over here.

Jonah has been teething and cutting molars CONSTANTLY for about two months now, and the past week and a half have been the worst of it. Most days are packed with this...

And also Mom wanting to burst into tears, as well :)

I know he is in pain, and I feel so bad for our Buddy, but I also could maybe use just one day of a normal happy toddler? Please? PLEASE!??

Anywho, we will try to get back to updating when things get a little easier. Anyone that wants to come hold an adorable almost 14-month old for 10 hours is welcome to!

I will make you dinner plus dessert. Or give you a limb. Or, possibly, carry a child for you.

Be back soon!
