I am sitting in the playroom watching my kiddo play with his new kitchen. He is currently microwaving an orange celebrating that there is nothing in his fridge or dishwasher. He really likes to open and close the doors.
We went to the daycare center today for an hour. My plan is to go for an hour or so a couple of times a week until he starts full time on January 7th. I don't know if its good or bad, but its what is making me less crazy. It is weird seeing him as a kid among kids..he is so special to me and in that environment, he's just another little kid.
Our christmas day was very mellow, went to my moms. My sweet hubby fixed us all breakfast and then we opened presents. Jonas got some puzzles but the big daddy was this cool kitchen thing with all the fixins. He just loves it.
I think I am going to let myself off the hook about this blogging thing. When I don't keep up with it it bothers me. I can't imagine with school starting that I will be able to make it a priority. I will upload the latest batch of pictures before the weekend is over...then I may take a sabbatical from it. We'll see.
Hope your holidays were relaxing and without too much family drama!
Ok, so I never uploaded the zoo pictures. I will get to that by the end of the week. Just finished my first semester of graduate school. I can't belive that in less than a month I will be going full time plus working an my internship. Crazy!! Its going to be hard on all of us.
Today, Jonas and I went to the mall to get a photo with Santa. He did so well..wasn't afraid of him at all. Then I decided to just stop by Sears portrait studio to see what the deal was with that. Well, you know they roped me in! So.. trying to get a 20 month old to sit/stand/kneel in one place long enough to take a photo is nearly impossible. Unreal the stuff we had to do to get good pictures of him. He was totally freaked out by the massive camera suspending apparatus and then all the weird people...and why the heck is mommy making all those funny faces at me... It was torture. The photog was really funny, Jonas was really great. When he would get irritated, he would just walk out of the room and say BYE BYEEEE and wave. I would run out and round him up and we would try again. The photog said most kids just scream and cry...mine has the wherewithall to just remove himself from the negative stimuli. (I secretly felt kinda proud!)
We took several walk-around-the-mall breaks. In the end we got some pretty great shots. I'll post some after I send them out to family for the holiday. No fair for you all to see them first!
I know I owe you some pictures...give me a few days. I am going on an interview Thrusday morning for my internship. Tomorrow will be shopping for a damn outfit (sooo not looking forward to that).
I haven't been active on the blog in a while. It really is funny how inspiration comes in waves. I have decided to use the blog for its original bloggy intention (to write my thoughts and observations) in addition to the coveted Jonas updates and photos. I actually have some video and pics to upload...we went to the zoo this weekend, so I'll share those later.
I have some schoolwork to get done..I can't believe this is the last week of the semester. I start full time on January 7th...I am both nervous and excited about it. I have mixed feelings about leaving Jonas all day, but at the same time, I am excited about getting out and interacting with people and learning. (I am trying not to feel guilty about this).
Ok, so right now we are watching Jacks Big Music Show on Noggin. This is one of the only shows we watch because of all the cool music. Right now there are two guys playing violins to this awesome hip hoppy jam...I must figure out who they are...amazing.
EDIT: THE GROUP IS CALLED NUTTIN BUT STRINGZ. ITS BROTHERS TOURIE AND DAMIEN ESCOBAR , THE SONG ON THE SHOW TODAY WAS "THUNDER". THEY HAVE A WEBSITE: WWW.NUTTINBUTSTRINGZ.COM
Sadly, my son has succumed to some branding. (which may be an over exaggeration since he has never seen the tv show..) anywhoo.. my kid loves books about Thomas the Train. So, of course we had to get him a little toy Thomas, which he loves and pushes around and says., "choo choo" which may be the cutest thing ever.
Ok...I'm not focused enough to do this now. I have a long to do list for today. I will try to get the zoo photos up this evening.
