Jonah Turns 3

Wow! I am just really outdoing myself with these blog posts lately :) Jonah turned 3 years old on Sunday. I can hardly believe I have a three year old; time really does fly. We had a birthday party at home complete with a homemade "Happy Birthday Jonah!" sign, red streamers, hot dogs for dinner, and a Lightning McQueen cake.
Jonah was very excited about his cake; don't tell him Lightning McQueen is pink (Mike used ALL of the red food coloring and we couldn't get the icing to turn red...hence Lightning's debut wearing pink. Lightning never looked so good in my opinion).

Blowing/spitting out his candles:

Opening presents. Grandma Nita and Grandpa Lowe got him a "Big Buzz", and he was VERY excited about it.

Jonah had his 3 year old appointment at the doctor today. He is in the 90th percentile for height and weight and apparently he is "perfectly proportioned" (i.e. not too fat and not too skinny).
I'm sure glad Jonah Lowe was sent to me three something years ago :)

We've Got KIDS!

I can't believe Mike and I have KIDS (emphasis on "KIDS" plural). We've had a few moments, mostly late at night when Carrie has gotten up for the umpteenth time we laid her down, where Mike and I wonder if Carrie will be our last. The majority of the time, we have LOVED having two kiddos and wouldn't want life any other way right now. One baby at a time, right?
Jonah, Carrie, and I just survived our first 5 days without a Grandma around. With the exception of our first day in which Jonah decided to lock himself in the bathroom and wouldn't unlock the door, I must say it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be. (knock on something wood for me) Although an extra hand or two is most definitely appreciated.
Here are a few more recent pictures of my cute kids:
