jonah and the pb&j

lately, jonah has really been getting into "big people" food. in fact, he will hardly even eat baby food anymore. he wants the real stuff. his newest discovery is the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. as you can see, he was really enjoying himself during meal time.
(it's so funny that he ate everything but the crust because his older siblings are the same way.)

jack's school journal

at the end of month, jack always brings home his monthly school journal.
usually there aren't very many entries, but the few days he does write seem to make up for all the days he doesn't.
it is such a treat to read.
i get such a kick out of it.
it's so fun to see his style of writing and how he envisions how words are spelled.
this is seriously one of my favorite things about being a mom, seeing my kids develop in each stage of their lives.

there isn't a day that goes by that i don't find these two sprawled out on the floor playing a game together.
except, sometimes they are forced to move their game to higher ground
if they find that jonah is using their game pieces as chew toys.
i think they got this game playing trait from their parents.
we are quite the gamers ourselves and i feel as if we are rubbing off onto our kids.
once upon a time, we used to play games with our friends and family into the wee hours of the morning...
(like 3 or 4 in the morning).
this was once upon a time when we were minus three or four kids.
nonetheless, this family loves games :)

chinese new year

ava goes to this cute little montessori preschool where they celebrate all of these holidays from around the world. yesterday was the first day of the chinese new year. so, ava got to learn all about their new year's traditions. she even learned how to say "happy new year" in chinese but, at the moment she has forgotten how it goes. oh, well.

happy chinese new year!... (yesterday)
