From the mouths of babes.

I love the children in my life. 
Especially when they say really funny stuff. 
So cute.

My nephew Jakob:

“hepicopter” instead of helicopter.

“what this go?” instead of what does this do.

“he gonna come outta there. I helpa you.” on me having Jonah

J: "He cant talk?" Me- "Nope." J: "aw. him can't walk, him can't talk, him dumb." -In reference to 2 week old Jonah

When Matt tried to show him how to pee standing up- Jakob: “wow matchoo you gots a big…” Matt: “OK! that’s enough for today”

Jakob: “how’d he get in you tummy?” Me: “god put him there.” Jakob: “how he do that?” yep, we dodged the baby questions for 15 months (9 months preggo, 6 months after Jonah was born), and then last week he asks.

“mommy gots losts a freakles and she wear mekas”… freakles as in freckles and mekas as in make-up

he runs around screaming: “it’s my money and I need it now!” quoting infomercials…

My niece Hannah:

H: “why are you laying down aunt kym?” Me: “because I’m a lazy bag of bones.” H: “you look more like a bag of babies to me”... when I was pregnant.

On breast feeding: "that is so super gross"

giggle box

Look what we caught on video today!!!

tummy time

the daily grind.

I swear that some days I am so unprepared all I can do is sit and think "My God what do I do?", then My God takes care of it :) And, come to think of it, I would hate it if I knew what to expect all the time. If my life ever becomes that predictable, I quit, lol. I just really dislike being so OCD sometimes.

6 months old... of Saturday.
His birth doesn't seem so long ago. In that same time span, he'll be having a birthday. We're 1/2 way to his BIRTHDAY. Why can't he just stay a bitty baby already?!

some firsts for all of us

was Jonah's first time attending a wedding.
Allen and Dawn are now MR. and MRS. Etherton :)
Their wedding was gorgeous... and they did it ALL themselves!
Jonah stayed up wayyyy past his bedtime, 
but eventually all that dancing wore him out ;)

And then yesterday of course, was Matt's 
1st Father's Day with Jonah. We don't really 
count last year, as he was still in tummy, lol.

We had an impromptu grill-out/hillbilly golf day
with Matt's parents and Nick. Yummy homemade fries, too.

marital bliss

Our friends Allen and Dawn
are getting married this afternoon!
I am so excited to watch them 
start this chapter of their lives together.
It's going to make me cry, I just know it :)

Also, I got my cousin Ryan's "Save The Date" card yesterday.
He and his fiance Shari are getting married in October.
Aren't they just the cutest?

Totally unrelated, but...
here are a few pics from our family walk last night:

Hip hip hooray

We finally got our entertainment center 
that Matt and his dad built 
set up today!!!!! :)
I really couldn't be happier about this.
And, because I simply can't
post a blog without him:

Snagged this dress:
at a resale store for a dollar last weekend, but I need to loose about 20lbs. before I will feel comfortable wearing it. 
Figures. I am so sick of feeling fat. 
It's time to loose this baby weight for real.

Coming together

Our home is finally looking more simple/organized. 
Which is what I've been wanting for a long time but just couldn't quite get it to happen. 
 This corner has seriously NEVER been this clean:
We have our own washer and dryer now!!! No more laundry mat (a.k.a. The Herron's) for me!!!! YAY :) 
My trunk is finally in our living room, though desperately needing paint...
and Matt is finishing building our entertainment center as I write! Jonah is hanging out and looking cute as usual, watching mommy clean:
 Oh yeah, and I got this cute little guy to put by the front door:
 I found an easier way to display Jonah's pictures:
 Now I can switch them easily, just slide them in & out of paperclips, instead of having to change them out of frames every few weeks.

 All this change is wearing Roxie out I guess:
Over the couch:
 I baked chocolate chip cookies earlier this week,
and they're all gone now:
 I think this handsome man may have ate them ;) :
