Wow! He's gotten big! I love this phase when they are trying so hard to talk and get some noise out. It's so precious. He's wonderful.

Glad you were able to go to church! My kids would do the same thing, be happy during the music, but fuss during the preaching. Jonah's too cute!

So sweet!! Thanks for sharing:) And I have to ask - where are you originally from? It's always surprising to hear someone's voice after "knowing" them for a while but never hearing them. I'm from the south so I recognize that twain a little bit:)

MelH said...

Patrice,
He is just so precious. Nothing sweeter then that!

KellyGirl said...

Oh, thank you so much for posting a video. To hear you and see and hear him, well like someone else said - in real life. Just makes him that much MORE precious. He is BEAUTIFUL and I continue to pray for you. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

What a beautiful boy! You can tell he's so smart, too--and apparently, already a great communicator like his mama!! :)

RLR said...

Totally adorable! What a happy guy you have there! Glad you were able to get out today :)

Heather said...

He is the sweetest baby! He seems so happy! Got my magnet and I LOVE it! Still praying hard for Jonah!

It's so fun to see Jonah in action, not just a still picture! Caroline was very excited to hear his voice, and was waving to him in the computer!

Pretty sure that's the cutest video I have ever seen. He's so darn cute! So glad to see you guys today. I loved hearing him in worship and was praising God that he was there! Love you guys.

So sorry I missed seeing that sweet little man baby today, I was a little under the weather, this morning.
OK Jonah, you are to cute, and trying so hard to get those words out.
Like I told your mommy, when you start talking GEE GEE, will probally get us both in trouble , how could I say no to such a sweet baby boy!!!!!
Hope you are having a great holiday weekend with all your family in town.
Praying for you always
Love Gina (GEE GEE)

Cindi said...

What a cutie patootie! He is so precious! Thank you for sharing that with us!

Donna C said...

What a sweetie. I love those noises they make when they want to respond to the voice they love to listen.

Rebekah said...

He was really responding and listening to you. SO CUTE!! I think that was the first time we got to see him on video. Thanks so much, I know I really enjoyed it. :)

Mary said...

WOW!! Gracias por el video de Jonah se ve super contento , Mi familia siempre lo tiene en el corazon!! Abrazos desde Jacksonville .

fulksfam said...

Oh my stars - what a SWEET little man! I'm pretty sure that if we bottled up baby giggles and bombed the entire world with them, that would solve all of the problems that exist. Because who can ever be angry or upset with that sweet sound ringing in their ears?

He is looking so good, Patrice. Casey's asleep for the night (haha, we hope), but in the morning I'm going to play this for him so he can see how his NC friend is doing!

When you think he's up for it, you should try putting Jonah in front of a mirror... we started doing that around 3 or 4 months, and it's hysterical to watch their reactions to the baby in the mirror, especially as they get bigger and more responsive. And just imagine the grins and giggles he'll give you when he sees that cute little dude looking back at him!

Love you guys! - Chris and Jessie and Casey

Jennifer W. said...

OMGosh that was SOOO sweet! I love when they try so hard to talk!! And when you first started talking, you sounded so much like me it actually startled me! My kids thought it WAS me! The more you talked the less it sounded like me, but the baby talking was too familiar!! He's precious.

50 comments so far! Wow! You are so blessed to have all these people who care about your family!

I loves the video! He is so sweet! He is growing so fast! I smiled the entire time I was watching! Glad you found some time to post this!

My son also loves the music...the preaching...not so much!

Wanda wilkinson said...

I will take a video of that doll baby anytime. He is so sweet, cute & growing.!!!!!! You can tell his mommie talks to him he responds to your voice & he knows where that voice is coming from, too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this beautiful happy baby.

I will watch this video over & over. I guess you will just have to keep putting up videos/pictures for me. I do not have anything close to that precious to post.

Jonah is so smart, he knows at his early age that the singing is the best part, I am willing to bet that mommie sings to him a lot.

Glad to know that all of you got out for such a beautiful day, hope it was not too hot for Jonah.

Love & lots of prayers to all of you

It was great to finally meet you guys at church! I was so happy to see Jonah. My kids were jealous that I got to meet him first. :) You and Matt really are amazing parents. And LOVE that video! I miss the baby sounds. :) I meant it when I said I'd love to do family pics for you guys sometime... no charge of course, and I'll give you the disk with all edited images and a copyright release letter so you can have them printed anywhere you'd like. I'd be honored, really. Again, it was nice to meet you, and see the little boy we've been praying so hard for! :)

Patrice,
Thank you so much for the video! It was such a blessing to see Jonah moving and trying to talk! I loved it! It was just as much a blessing to hear your voice too, espcially since it was your mommy voice! More videos soon PLEASE!! I know I am going to meet you ad your family one day. I'm not that far away. It just has to happen!

One more thing -- I love love love my magnet!! I love being able to tell Jonah's story when people ask "What is EB, who is Jonah?" I don't mind telling them about EB, but I LOVE telling them Jonah's story and all about your blog. And, I can't talk about Jonah with talkig about Gabe. I hope that doesn't sound too strange when I say I love telling people Jonah's story because really I wish there was no Jonah's (or Gabe's) story, know what I mean?

Melissa said...

Oh, he's too cute! I love the part where it almost looks like he's waving to us!

Mary Dunbar said...

I am smitten. He really does steal my heart. Makes me want to reach out and snuggle him. And that sweet little cry at the end, oh my would he be spoiled. I wouldnt be able to handle that little cry for a minute! =)

What a sweet, sweet baby! Like others have said, it's great to see and hear Jonah (and you) "in real life" (vs. in still photos). He's such a cutie!

Laura in Texas said...

That is a beautiful baby!!! He's just a doll and I loved being able to see his personality. Thank you for sharing him with us :) You all remain in my prayers. He's gorgeous!

valerie said...

I loved seeing Jonah in the video.
He loves being talked to doesn't he?
He is so attentive and alert. He's just precious!
I keep the "Praying For Jonah" picture on my
blog and pray for him every day.

mrs. mari said...

jonah is so beautiful!!! and he certainly seems to have a sermon in him he's trying so hard to preach it out to the masses in worship :)

thank you so much for sharing this video--i am still smiling.

nancy said...

I am so glad you posted about Katie and their new baby girl! My daughter, Amy lives in Holly Springs as well! I would love to know where they live so I could go visit them and maybe even go when you and sweet Jonah might be there! I there lots visiting my babies!
The video of Jonah is priceless to me! All of the pics have been so sweet, but to actually get to see him in action and talking back to you is so touching! I have watched it over and over! Glad I got to hear your voice again too!
Glad you are starting to be more adventurous and getting out with him!
We are still waiting anyday now for Amy Holt's new baby to arrive! Her due date is May 27th!
Love and prayers from me to you daily.

Jill in Alabama said...

Too Cute!
My daughter is 22 months and LOVES the singing in church but when the minister starts the sermon she raises her hand YELLS "Bye Bye" and heads out the door. (which is why we sit in the back)

Lorraine-bo said...

darling darling darling!

I love the little coos and smiles ... and the sweet round face!

Sidenote: I grew up in central FL and your delightful accent and mannerisms make me miss home!

Kim M said...

What a sweet video - isn't it fun when they react to you that way! I'm thinking that at church he was trying to little the preacher know he was there if he needed a prop for answered prayer!!!

Amanda said...

Thanks for sharing a video of Jonah man! It's so nice to see the smiles. :)

My Goodness Jonah has grabbed my heart strings!! I've just got to figure out a way to plan a trip to be one of his extra grandmas.
Patrice, you are so good with him. You can see it in his eyes when you talk with him. He adores you and follows you every movement. What a special, special bond you have.

I absolutely LOVE this video. He is so social and so into the conversation! You can see he adores his Mama. What a little angel, and so strong. I look forward to seeing more videos ;-)

God Bless

Melissa said...

How cute! He really got excited remembering the bottle he drank! I think he was saying, "I was glad when they said unto me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.' And let's fellowship around some milk!" Someday, you won't have to hear only two songs and then leave, but until then, enjoy the two! Great video of a great blessing! Thank you for sharing.
