Happy Birthday Brian! And Jonas is 9 months old!

We celebrated Brian's birthday on Thursday. He's 30 years young! I made a german chocolate cake (no not from scratch, I know my mom's disappointed) but it came out SOOOO much better than Brian's birthday cake last year.
Quick recap: birthday cake last year

Birthday cake this year:

Much better!

We didn't make Brian suffer with a blazing cake of 30 candles, just put a 3 on there plus ten candles in the shape of a 0. Here he is blowing it out:

And it was HIS suggestion to hold up the numbers (like I have Jonas do for his month shots). So here's the birthday MAN!

He also got spoiled. We had steak dinner at home (I guess not totally spoiled- he had to pick it up from the store on his way home from work and then cooked it himself:) How's that for a special birthday dinner! This is because my plan was Outback but the gift card I ordered didn't come in. What you know it comes in the day after! zoit!) Also, he got a Kindle so he's having fun with that.

In all the birthday excitement, I didn't take Jonas' 9 month shots THAT day but here are his from a day later. Yes, he's in his pjs. It was a lazy day.

I love this picture; it's like he's saying"What? What did I do?"

And this one is great, too. He looks like he is trying to hold up 9 fingers.

But this one takes the cake!
Facts about Jonas: He is still around 22 lbs, 26.5 in. He LOVES to jump out of your lap and grab your hands so you can walk him around. Just yesterday I got him to take a few steps with me holding only one hand so maybe soon! He's actively clapping. He can push a little ride-along toy around pretty well. And it was funny the other day, he was blowing raspberries nonstop as I was walking him around. He makes sounds like "ha", "e", "a" and "g". And I LOVE listening to him laugh. He sucks in air for a high-pitched squeal!

I was trying to get Jonas to hold the 9 up to his face but he wasn't cooperating so Sydney said it was her turn and she was more than happy to pose for me in her goofy little way.

Love to all!
