24: Sleepy | Little Jonas could fall asleep ANYWHERE! Mommy would leave for a moment or look away and find him asleep in his chair, on the floor, on the couch - wherever!
26: Jonas' one year birthday party was a blast! One may think that the top picture is an example of how busy Jonas was during his party, but in fact, this is Jonas before! He fell asleep about 15 minutes before our first guest arrived, and stayed asleep until everyone had arrived. He woke up to find at least a dozen people playing and laughing around him. At first, he was confused and tried to hide under Mommy's legs, but he soon warmed up and began to play and have lots of fun opening presents and eating cake!
27: Mommy and Daddy help Jonas blow out his big ONE candle!
