All Dressed Up

Last Saturday Jonah was the ring bearer in my cousin Noah's wedding. He did phenomenally, and was the best looking one in a tuxedo (in my opinion). He went to rehearsal the day before with Bubbe and Tata (my parents). He kept telling us all day that he wanted to practice. When the wedding began I stood in the back with him, waiting for his turn to go down the aisle. When we were cleared for Jonah's turn I told him to walk straight down the aisle, and to "go find daddy". About 10 ft out he starts bellowing "daddy, daddy". The seats were set up in rows about 2/3 of the way down the aisle. Where they began there were rose pedals all down the aisle. No one thought to tell him that it was OK to step on them, but he stopped right where the rose pedals began. He didn't know what to do. He began tippy toeing and trying to be delicate on them while still bellowing "daddy, daddy". Once he found daddy everyone clapped. Although he was not the show stopper, he certainly was a hit.

Eli wore a very very very cute navy blue suit and tie. He looked so cute that you could eat him.

The boys played around w/their cousins Dylan and Rachel before the picture taking began.

Just as a reminder a list has been set up for Jonah, if you're looking for birthday gift ideas. Just click on the link in the menu on the right hand side of the blog. (Here's a link for you just in case Jonah's 3rd Birthday). Look for the pictures of his birthday party coming soon. Have a nice weekend!

Mother's Day at the Zoo

Sorry for posting so late, I just can't catch the time no matter how hard I try. We are all doing well. Both boys are growing like little weeds.

Jonah is just too smart for his own good. He can count to 10, say his ABC's, recognize all of the letters, colors and numbers, he can tell you what each letter is for (J is for Jonah and E is for Eli), he also does a good job of counting things out for you. It's hard to believe he's going to be 3 at the end of the month. Where does the time go? He will be starting at the JCC in September for preschool. Bubbe & Tata (my parent's) are giving him swim lessons for his birthday, which we will start in July.

Eli is signing much more now that Rob & I are focusing on it. He doesn't speak, so we're trying to get him to sign for us. He understands everything we say and picks up on everything. We're also going to enroll him parent/tot swim class. I'm really looking forward to it. Eli has quite the little buddha belly, and giggles so sweetly when you tickle him. We all love to make Eli laugh because it really is the best laugh.

Jonah & Eli are quickly becoming frienemies. Eli wants everything Jonah has and Jonah wants everything Eli has. I do a lot of referring. All in all, they are so cute together. Jonah tells Eli he loves him, and pretty much melts our hearts everytime he says it.

Where we going next daddy?

Jonah and daddy!

The entire time we were there Jonah just wanted to see the elephant. Here he is the much anticipated elephant, Jonah loved seeing him.

Stay tuned for more pictures of the boys from my cousin Noah's wedding on Saturday. All I can say is little boys in tuxes and suits have to be the cutest thing ever.
