Jude's 4th Birthday Party

This year Jude's birthday party was held at the Carondelet YMCA and the theme of the party was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Naturally. What boy doesn't love them? Right, Jake?

jude meets jonah

Mark and I were really excited to see Jude's reaction when he first laid eyes on his baby brother. After giving Jonah the "once over" a couple times Jude decided it was more fun to play with his "presents from Jonah" than Jonah himself. Something tells me it won't always be this way. :)
