Jonas sleeps well and rarely cries. He's smiling a lot now, especially when his big brothers are nearby. I'm officially back to baking cakes and he likes hanging out in the kitchen with me while I work. Thank goodness he's content in his bouncy chair! He's no longer safe on the couch since Elliott likes to "play" too much and almost pulled him off the other day.
The big brothers are doing well too. Elliott seems to get jealous at times and has been a little more high maintenance than usual, but he loves kissing and hugging his little brother...sometimes too much. Malachi is a great helper and is very protective of Jonas. I can always count on him to keep me informed of what's happening.
We have a lot going on this week so I'll have plenty of new pictures and material for the blog...hopefully I'll take the time to get them up here so you all can keep up with us!

Meg and Kels - thank you SO much for all the work you put into making Jonas' announcements special. I love the way they turned out and I'm already planning future projects for both of you!

This year we decided to get Malachi a ride bracelet that allowed him to ride as many times as he wanted. He loved it! I was amazed at how many of the big rides he is now tall enough to ride - and how brave he was as he rode them repeatedly all by himself!
As for Elliott, I was sure a bracelet would be a waste of money because there weren't that many rides that he's able to ride. I was wrong. He would have ridden the "tractorrrr" ride a hundred times. He loves cars and trucks (all "tractorrrs" to him) and he loved this ride. He cried every time it stopped!
All three boys were fans of the merry-go-round. Yes, even Jonas got to ride since I had to be on with Elliott!
I should also mention that Erik won the festival 5k on Saturday morning. Unfortunately I don't have a picture because I had to stay home with Elliott and Jonas, but Aunt Meg and Malachi were there cheering him on to victory for the second year in a row!

Becky and Kevin - thank you SO much for all your help while we began our transition to a family of 5! It was nice to not have to worry about entertaining kids, doing laundry, cooking, etc. for a few days. We can't wait for your next visit!
