Reading to me

Before bed tonight, Jonah brought one of his Magic Treehouse books into my room and read to me.  Yep, HE read me HIS bedtime story.  I still can't quite grasp that he is big enough for this.

Pics from Jonah

I decided to share with you some of the pics Jonah has taken on my phone.  As you will see, he enjoys the Fatbooth app...and pictures of himself.

"Can you tell me how to get..."

I am now on my 25th day of "taking it easy" and "laying low" and "bed rest."  I've watched more TV in the last three weeks than I have the last three years combined.  I haven't felt much like talking on the phone so my main mode of communication has been text and email.  I've listened to podcasts, done my own personal Bible Study and watched church on TV.  I've blogged (a little) but have managed to read lots of blogs.  I've caught up on the news.  I'm OFFICIALLY BORED!

So, I've diverted my attention to a cause near and dear to my heart.  A BIRTHDAY PARTY!  if you know me, you know I love a good party.  I love the planning and executing.  I love the little details.  I love the big details.  I just love a party.  In less than two months, Micah will turn 2 years old.  For months, I have planned an Elmo party.  I've researched, pinned, planned and been excited about a full on ELMO BASH!  Which, would be perfect, except for Micah's new found love of Abby!

Yes, little Abby Cadabby has stolen his heart.  He loves her.  She and Elmo are friends and Elmo still takes top spot with Micah but Abby is a BIG part of his day.  Each morning, he goes through his routine of asking where everyone is.  

"Daddy?"  I tell him "Daddy is at work."  
"Nonah?"  I tell him "Jonah is at school."
"Dax?"  I point to Max.
"Elmo?"  There is usually an Elmo of some sort within our line of vision so I point him out.
"Abby?"  "Abby's on TV or in your book!" I say.  

Then, numerous times throughout our day, we talk about Abby.  He loves her so much that some of the people who have been here to help me have picked up on it.  One told me she searched all of Target last week for an Abby toy for him.  I had done the same but could not find one.  

Because of this new found love of Abby, I second guessed my birthday idea.  I know he loves Elmo so that wouldn't be bad thing but I wanted to add Abby in.  But, as you can see, Abby is purple and pink.  Abby is VERY much a girl theme.  So, in order to incorporate Abby into the birthday theme, we are switching gears from an Elmo party to a full on Sesame Street party.  That actually works great because  he also loves "Unnnie, Butt and Tooky"  (That's Ernie, Bert and Cookie Monster!!)

I ordered his invites today and now I will spend the next few days working on other details.  There are so many cute ideas.  I can hardly wait.  I can only imagine his face as he walks into the house that morning.  He literally shakes with excitement when he sees something new.  And, when he wakes up today, he will have a new surprise.  We found a little Abby doll for him.  Maybe I'll have the video ready just so you can see how much he loves her.

Dan blogged!

Several years ago, Dan started blogging.  I think I convinced him to do it.  He did pretty well for a day or two.  Then, his blogging became quite sporadic.  As in almost never.  He blogged 18 times in 2009, none in 2010 and just twice in 2011.  So, here he is blazing into the latter part of 2012 with a blog post...AND A VIDEO!  Check him out HERE!

Happy Birthday to Miller!

Today, sweet little Miller turns 2 years old!  2 YEARS OLD!  I can hardly believe it.  I was supposed to be there when he was born but the little booger came in the middle of the night and messed that up.  So, instead I've just been around to watch him grow...which has been pretty fun!  Miller is Micah's best friend.  I'm serious, they love each other.  Miller's party was Saturday but I'm still at home recovering so  I missed it.  Micah and his daddy went to celebrate! 

Ann Axon, a local photographer was there to document the day.  She put this collage on her Facebook later that night.  I love it.  I can't wait to see all the other shots she got of the day.  I'm sad to have missed it.  I asked Micah if he had fun.  "Miyere have balloons!" is all I got from him.  Aja later told me he loved the big Mickey Mouse Mylar balloon at the party.  

In honor of Milly's 2nd birthday, I pulled a few favorite photos of these little guys together.  I sure hope they are lifelong friends.  What a sweet history they will have!
