Jonah - First Birthday Party

I can't believe it's not butter and that Jonah is 12 months old. To celebrate, we decided to have a kids birthday party for 49 people. 23 of those 49 were under the age of 9. So it was a fairly chaotic night at the Kent household.
Mommy spent many hours baking these cupcakes and the birthday cake. Thank goodness daddy didn't have to decorate as I'm not sure what a whale stick figure looks like.
Jonah wearing his whale outfit and his birthday hat. The hat lasted for about 4.5 minutes over the course of the two hours of the party. We sang happy birthday at exactly 6:53 pm when Jonah was born.
Jonah sure did seem to enjoy eating his birthday cupcake!
Here's Jonah opening one of his new toys with some help from the neighborhood kids.

Here's Jonah opening his presents with the help of virtually all of the neighborhood kids.

Here's Jonah looking a little overwhelmed and looking for daddy's help after being swamped by all of the neighborhood kids.

This is Jonah's cougar friend Shelby. She's a sweetheart and helped Jonah with his nighttime bottle.

Jonah - 11 months old!

The little peanut is 11 months old! Latest milestones: scooches backwards and forwards on his belly and rocks back and forth on his hands and knees (aaaallllmost crawling...), walks with assistance, said first word ("kitty", or actually a high-pitched "ki-ki-ki-ki" while chasing the cats), and responds to his name. Jonah has had two music lessons (see a couple posts ago for a run-down of that...) and has started eating table food. In particular he likes grilled cheese sandwiches, cheese slices, cheesy goldfish crackers, and cheese-flavored rice cakes. Hmmm...I sense a pattern. We also learned that avocados and yogurt make him throw up, so we won't do that again for a little while. Jonah also loves clapping his hands, and claps on his own whenever we say "yea!!"

Jonah's First Music Lesson

Do you know the muffin man, the muffin man, the muffin man? Do you know the muffin man, who lives on Drury Lane?

Jonah knows the muffin man, the muffin man, the muffin man. Jonah knows the muffin man, who lives on Drury Lane.

Charlie knows the muffin man...
Avery knows the muffin man...
Olivia knows the muffin man...

Everyone knows the muffin man...class ended 7 hours ago and I wonder why I still have this in my head!! :-)

Anyway, Jonah's first music class went very well. The teacher led the class on an autoharp and we bounced along to She'll be comin' round the mountain, we beat on drums, walked in a big circle, danced, tapped our shoulders and rubbed our bellies and waved and found our eyes, noses and ears all to music. Everyone got "instruments" too. Jonah has a saxaphone. I'm kidding. We beat drumsticks together and shook these easteregg-looking shakers. Jonah seemed to enjoy the class very much and we think he is already smarter.

Beating drums. :-)

Shaking shakers. :-)

The Grilled Cheese Sandwich

1. Jonah eating a grilled cheese sandwich.

2. Enter Asti: "Hey - is that a grilled cheese sandwich I smell? Why, yes it is. Surely this sandwich will end up on the floor eventually if I sit here long enough".
3. Jonah eyes Asti. Asti eyes the sandwich.
4. Asti wins.
