Can you believe that Jon cut down our Christmas tree??? Of course, he had Jonah and Uncle Stephen to help. Our beautiful Christmas tree is standing next to Jessi.

Jonah really really really loves cell phones. He has both of Jon's in his hands.

Jon was admitted to the CA bar on Monday. Yeahh!!! Jonah tried to compete with the Judge for everyones attention. All he wanted to do was to crawl everywhere during the ceremony.

Thanks GG, GGP, and Aunt Karen for this great gift. We are all singing the animal train song and Jonah drives the animal train all over our house.

Jonah's First Thanksgiving!!
So, we realized that we didn't take enough pictures. We need some pics of GG, pop pop, and his soon to be new Uncle Paul. Since they are serious blog subscribers maybe they will email us a few to post.

Jonah and Grandma... he is a big boy!!!

A big boy who is very loved by Nana and Aunt Sara. Aunt Sara got engaged the day after Thansgiving. Isn't she glowing?

It is so special when Jonah falls asleep in my arms. I think the world stops.

Aunt Steph's blog debut... they had a lot of fun watching Damien skateboard.

Hip Hip Hooray!!!! Dad passed the CA bar. Mom, Dad, and Uncle Stevie went for a bike ride and then had breakfast at the peninsula creamery. Mom said the milkshakes were incredible and I really enjoyed the little bite of french toast that I had. :)

Thanks Stella and Haley for the great shirts. I promise to keep them with me all the time because they are from my favorite girls.

I begged mommy to sleep in my crib with me and she was silly enough to listen to me. It was fun until Dad told her that she might break the crib!!!!

Happy Halloween!!! Here are some of the latest and greatest of Jonah B. .....
Jonah really likes cars and trucks and anything with wheels that rolls. Mommy couldn't resist buying him a tractor with farm animals.

Jonah's second favorite thing to do is to pull books off his bookshelf one by one and laughing the whole time. He is so smiley and happy.

Daddy finally bought mommy a rocking chair!!! Jonah reeeeaaaalllly likes it.

The Finale..... Jonah is wearing his cousin's halloween costume. We went to Dad's work to say hello. I think the little dinosaur was overwhelmed with all of the attention.

Jonah is in an exploration phase. He is learning all types of new things and is curious about everything.

About a month ago, Jonah started standing in his crib. I (jessi) walked in one morning and there he is standing in his crib, very proud of himself. He is still trying to figure out how to get down from the standing position (other than falling).

I guess all babies are fascinated by certain things, well, Jonah is fascinated with wheels and ANYTHING that rolls. He is constantly crawling towards his stroller and rolling it. Behind him is a package of clothes from Stella and Haley. He says thanks to his girlfriends. :)

Q -T- pie :) Jonah on the go go!!

Jonah is now bouncing to music. He loves to play the piano (the adult piano and baby piano) and listen to Uncle Stephen play the guittar and sing. Look how big he is getting! Posted by Picasa

Jonah's Swim Lessons

Considering Jessi's passion for swimming, we decided to get Jonah started early with swim lessons (he didn't really retain much from all of the swimming that Jessi did while he was in the belly). Well, admittedly perhaps swimming is a bit ambitious in that he just started to crawl, but we think that he is an overacheiver like his mommy. Jonah loves the pool. He doesn't mind water in the face, but has trouble blowing bubbles under water, but he loves to laugh at mommy and daddy as we try to teach him how to blow bubbles...

Mt. Tamalpais Hill Climb - Jessi's First Bike Race

Jessi did her first road bicycle race (other than a triathalon) and did very well. Jonah and I were the loudest fans in the crowd at the finish line. Jonah enjoyed watching mommy race for once, after going to all of my races last year. The race was a monster climb up one of the toughest climbs in the bay area. Jonah thinks that we should take a ride up Mt. Tamalpais in the Chariot, but I'm not sure I have the legs to get us both up there. He's pretty persuasive though, so I'm sure we'll give it a shot one of these days...

San Francisco


This week Ben (Jonathan's brother), Laurie, Sam, and Aiden McFarland are visiting from Seattle. On Monday, we went into San Francisco for the day. We met up with Rob and Lucy at their new place on Russian Hill and wandered over to the beach in front of the Golden Gate Bridge for a walk. Wow, what an amazing place...
Rob, Lucy, Jonah, and Jonathan in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. Jonah and Lucy bonded immediately... Perhaps it is the hair :)
