Beautiful Things They Say

On Friday night I was doing my usual bed time routine w/the boys. After their bath Eli is in my lap and Jonah next to me in the rocking chair (he's a big boy who doesn't sit in my lap anymore :( ). Here is our conversation:
Jonah: "Mama you a lady?"
Candice: "yes"
J: "Eli's my brother?"
C: "yes"
J: "I love him"
C: "that's wonderful"
J: "Mama I kiss him"
before I could respond he leaned over and just kissed Eli on his head. Rob & I were so proud. We will have to hold these moments close to our hearts b/c when they are tearing each other up we'll remember they love each other.

Presenting Our Newest Member

Hi everyone I thought I'd post 2 pictures of my newest cousin that were sent to me by my aunt. My first cousin Joshua (on my dad's side), who lives in Northern California, had a beautiful baby girl, Katerina Alerdina Gross, on February 17, 2007 weighing 6 lbs. 14 oz. 20 in. Congratulations to Josh and Diane on their new joy! Mazel Tov to all of the Gross' on their first grandchild and niece.

Super Bowl fun

The boys got into the spirit of the game. I'm sorry I don't have more pictures of Jonah, but he doesn't want to be in pictures he wants to take pictures. I did teach him what his shirt said though. He was very cute going around saying "Go Bears". Rob was very proud. He was the cutest cheerleader ever. We were all dressed in our Bears attire, but never got a chance to take a family portrait. Oh well it just means the Bears will have to be in the Super Bowl next year.

Jonah is saying "cheese"

Our doggy fan Sascha

He's about to take a step toward me. He's currently taking 2-4 steps on his own. We anticipate he'll be walking around the house any day now.

You can see how tired he is in his eyes.

Jonah w/Bubbe. Doesn't she look great? She's lost 40 lbs.

Eli is almost walking as you can see above. He's really sick and Rob has been home w/him yesterday and today. He has a sinus infection, but he's on antibiotics now and is slowly getting better. Jonah is just so cute. Yesterday, he came home from day care, and saw Eli, went straight for him, and gave him a kiss. It was so cute I just scooped Jonah up and gave him a hug. We could tell Jonah missed not being w/Eli all day. It's going to be tough for him in the fall when he starts preschool and Eli won't be with him. They really do depend on each other to always be around.

Poor Rob didn't have the best birthday b/c Jonah, Eli & I were all sick. We've had such amazing weather for the last few days (high 70's low 80's) but we haven't been able to go out b/c we've all been sick. Hopefully, we'll be able to go out this weekend and do a little late celebrating. More soon...
