Jonas 1 year-old! photos and photos!

Hey everyone! I finally took some time to edit these photos I took on Jonas' birthday. Love photoshop! And love it even more now that I am on a new and faster computer. My old computer could not keep up with me and so we got a replacement! I am loving it!

But I dressed up Sydney and Jonas on Jonas' birthday and had some fun. This is our front yard. The kids mostly play in the back yard but I love this huge shady tree in our front yard and also how the grass is keeping pretty short (because of the tree no doubt) so you can actually see the kids! Anyways, here are some shots of the birthday boy:

To Jonas,
You came a lot earlier than I expected. I had already had a C-section so I was not as nervous this time around but was saddened when you had to go to the NICU. It broke my heart to not be able to hold you until you were about 3 days old. I was not encouraged to even touch you before then either. But all through your time being sick, I was not worried. I knew you would pull through just fine and whatever the after-effects, you would be watched over. I love your sense of humor, your way of making everyone smile, your tenacity and curiosity. Everyone loves your blue eyes. That's about the only facial feature I can take credit for as everyone says you and your sister look like your dad. I hope you always enjoy the sun, the beautiful world around you and remember each day is a gift from God.

Here is Sydney. Love this little girl's personality!

Here is one of the above pictures that I went a little artistic on. I think I'm going to frame it and hang it up!

And no photo shoot is complete without getting some cute pictures of these two together!

And here is a picture of the bath toys Jonas got for his birthday from us. Now when these two take a bath it is water chaos! but they love it! There are these foam roads and car pieces that stick to the walls and then this cup tower with different cups that have holes, and spinning pieces, etc.

Oh yeah! one more thing! I saw this idea on another blog and thought it was sooo cute! I talked to Sydney about octopuses and how many legs they have. We checked out some videos of their amazing camouflage. Then we had "octopus" for lunch and made an octopus craft. It was really fun!

That's all for now!
