Circus, Circus

This weekend, Helena and Jonathan got to experience their first circus.

Snowmaggedon 2!

Last weekend we got about 6 inches of snow. The middle of this week we got about another foot, which kept us all home for two days. Two words - cabin fever! Helena was hard at work outside clearing the snow...and Jonathan is anxiously waiting for his opportunity to go outside and play himself.

"I want out into that snow!"

Jonathan is 10 months old!

Jonathan is crawling everywhere he can get to, and climbing up everything else. The gates we have put up to curb his movements have not stopped him. He loves the attention he gets from Helena, and he follow her where ever she goes. He especially enjoys some of her old toys - the kitchen, the music set, the toy piano. He also has some new toys of his own - a walker and a 3-in-1 sport set.

We only got 6 inches in Central Jersey, but we tried to make the best of it this weekend.
