    Welcome to Joni's New World! Here you will find my thoughts on anything I am currently obsessing over: mostly Literature, languages, and travel. View the cloud down there for a better representation of subjects.

    I've been blogging since 2005. My early posts were on Multiply but have since exported those to Blogger. See if you can find that. (Actually not that hard.)

    All about the chunky one this week because she seems to be on a high speed train and I’m having a hard time keeping up. Lots of milestones reached on week 26.

    –I swear she has started saying “Mom.” I tried to get it on record. I’m still trying. Here’s one of my attempts:

    –She can sit up unassisted now for longer periods

    –She has gotten on all fours, rocking, in preparation for crawling. Here’s an example of her rocking:

    I’m not so sure I’m ready for all these. Everything seems to be happening so fast. Slow down, baby bubut!

    But still…

    Thank you! More please!

    –Mother’s Day

    I’m not one to celebrate “days” at all. Up until a few years ago, I wouldn’t even celebrate my own birthday. But the hubby makes it a point to always do something special for me. For Mother’s Day, he got me a 23 and me kit–something I had been wanting for a long time now–as well as a few other things. Here are the images that make up my first Mother’s Day.

    –We also celebrated with mom. Here’s Jojo giving mom a mother’s day kiss:
