We had a wonderful celebration this past weekend for Jonas's birthday. Both Steve's family and my family were able to come to our home to celebrate our little man turning one! It was wonderful to have everyone together; I think the last time all of our family (mom's, dad's, brothers, sisters, etc) was our wedding! Here are some photos from Jonas's birthday party.
Jonas took his first steps this month! It was so exciting to see him standing and walking on his own. He gets very nervous when he realizes that he is standing on his own, so we are trying to make sure that he doesn't get too anxious about it. We have been helping him practice walking, and I am sure that soon, he will overcome the fear and realize that his little body can hold him up all on his own! Jonas has a toy that he loves to push around the house and yell "Bee-Bee" (Translation: 'beep-beep'). It is so cute to see him do this, and he absolutely love it! Even though he probably uses this toy as a safety net, and it is most likely the reason he doesn't walk on his own all of the time, I would rather him take his time and get there on his own. He enjoys the toy and it isn't hurting anything, well, except for the times that he runs over my toes! Here is a picture of him with his walker toy! You can see the joy in his eyes!
I think I started writing this blog post on Jonas's actual birthday - August 21st, so I can't really remember if I was planning on mentioning anything else! I guess that comes with being pregnant! Some days I forget the simplest of words! It is actually kind of funny, and Steve enjoys it too! Continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers in these next few months! only 22 more weeks until our due date! I will keep you all posted on Baby Y #2. We have our ultrasound schedule in about 2 1/2 weeks, and we are eagerly anticipating finding out if it is a boy or a girl! Thanks for reading our blog!
