One Month

I can hardly believe that he will be one month old tomorrow! Time flies by and he is growing FAST! He is already up to 10 lbs 6 oz.

I forgot to tell you about the visitors we had in his first few weeks…
My friend Lindsay was doing some sightseeing in DC and took time out of her busy tourist schedule to come visit!

We met at BYU on the New Zealand study abroad. Since she visited I did a little reminiscing about New Zealand and found a much cuter photo of us. I much prefer this photo of us at the New Zealand airport:

Anyhow…I wanted her to see a photo of Jonah looking very cute in one of the outfits she got him…

My friend Hillary that I met while working at Anasazi also came to visit about a week later…but I didn’t manage to get a picture with her. We met up with her at the DC temple while waiting for my Mom.

Speaking of my Mom…we were SO blessed to have her here for the first few weeks…sadly she missed the birth by a few days (the little bugger was in a hurry to get out!) but we were soooo happy to have her! She was a HUGE help, thanks Mom!

Some of you may be wondering how Zoey is doing with all of this…well, we are working on transitioning her into being more of an outside dog. Which has been difficult with the crazy amount of ticks in this area…we have found multiple ticks on her, on ourselves and just in the house. YUCK! SO, we try to keep her outside as much as possible and check her thoroughly before bringing her in. Shortly before Jonah was born Nick spent a whole weekend building her a beautiful doghouse…

She’s not too pleased with being banished to the backyard. This is what I usually see when I look out the window:

I keep telling Nick that I think she’s getting depressed…she looks so sad out there! But she’s been really good about the baby…no problems there. She pretty much just steers clear, especially when he cries. Here is the last “family photo” of us before everything got turned upside down for her! This is us at the cherry blossom festival in DC a few weeks before Jonah’s birth.

She’s no longer the baby in the house…
