Today Jonah is four, which I cannot believe!  Tonight for the first time he picked out his very own birthday dinner.  I forgot to warn Big J that we are having hot dogs and mac and cheese for supper tonight...  

Jonah can now also chew gum,  at least he is allowed to but there doesn't seem 
to be much "chewing".  

Another milestone that is marked today is that we are DONE with "sippy cups."  We have been singing a made-up song for months entitled "Bye-Bye Sippy Cups."  He is not very excited but taking it like a "big boy."  This weekend we hope to go to a "big store" (IKEA) and and pick out some new big boy cups.  

We also have blue hands today after making the final handprint for the front of our pre school scrapbook!  

Of course we had a CARS party this weekend with our families complete with racing, a race track cake, and many, many CARS presents!   He also learned the official way to open presents (see above picture) where all wrapping and tissue paper are thrown into the air and over your shoulder.  A special thanks to my brother for teaching him that skill.  Now if you could just teach him how to pedal a bike or zip our coat, that would be much more useful.

Anyway, Fabulous Four, here we come!

Okay, it is insane that you and Jake have a 4-year-old son. Weren't we just in college? Didn't you guys just get married? When did we all grow up???
