I say, "Hey! What's goin' on?"

I woke up with that song in my head this morning.
Well, I haven't blogged in nearly a week. A lot has been happening since then. Let's see if I can remember what. Jonah is (army) crawling like a champ now. He likes to go towards anything new. His toys are no longer of interest to him. He likes cords (yipes!), shoes (yuck!), cats (they are too fast for him still), pens, markers, paper, cassettes, dvd cases, oh pretty much anything. Sometimes he will find on teeny tiny something (like a piece of rice) on the floor and put his whole attention into it. He can go from sitting to crawling on his own, but not vice versa yet.
Jonah has not slept thru the night in over a week now. Last night he woke up fussing at 10, 11, and 1. I didn't go into him and it only lasted a couple minutes. However at 3:50 he woke up again. I let him cry for 30 minutes then gave in and went in, changed him, and fed him. It actually was better than the night before.
Thursday we went in to have Jonah's head casted in plaster strips so they can make his helmet. He did awesome at the appointment and I have high hopes that he'll adjust to the helmet quickly when he gets it in two weeks.
This week my 19 yr. old brother, Mark, agreed to go to San Francisco with us as my companion. This way I'll have someone fun to hang out with while Brandon is in classes all day. Hooray!
Friday morning Jonah's first tooth came thru! You can't even see it yet, but you can't believe how excited I got after feeling those cute, little, hard bumps.
Friday evening we got a babysitter for the first time in forever and went to watch my bro-in-law coach one of his high school football games. It rained hard!! He beat the opposition but it was a close, exciting game; good date.
Saturday we left Jonah with Grammy Linda for a couple hours while we went to the Ron Paul Constitutional Rally at the historic Union Station at the Gateway in Salt Lake City.

He is a good speaker with a lot of substance. I really hope people will start paying more attention to his ideas of going back to the original framework of the constitution, listening to the advice of the founding fathers, and shrinking the federal government.
Saturday evening Linda cooked me dinner for my birthday (they are leaving for Spain on my actual b-day). The roasted tomatoes fresh from a garden were delish. She got me a delectible rasperry cake from a bakery in Midway. We had a good time hanging out. They also gave me a puzzle of Heber, a Willow Tree figurine, and money to put towards furniture for our new place.
Sunday I got to go to all three hours of church. I like my ward; very friendly. Then my next door neighbor, whose husband we met yesterday, came by to invite us to dinner on Saturday (which we can't go to). She stayed and chatted for a bit and I'm so glad to have a sweet neighbor to be friends with. I made dhal bhat (my favorite food) for dinner. It was a great day yesterday!

Sounds like you have lots of fun things keeping you busy! You e-mailed me about Jonah's sleep & now after reading this I would say to check for other teeth coming through! That is a huge cause for waking babies in my house.. that & ear infections, which tend to go hand-in-hand. (And in my experience the top teeth were MUCH worse than the bottoms, & almost ALWAYS resulted in an ear infection!!)

I heard that song today!! 4 Non-blondes. I had their cd. Or actually it was a tape... Whatever.

I love Willowtree! The one you got is beautiful.

All of my babies' sleep patterns went right out the window when they were teething...hope Jonah (and you!) get a lot more sleep at night very soon! :)

It's great that Mark is going with you! Sounds like so much fun! :D
