photos of jonah




Holding bottle all by self...
Our sorry attempt at tummy time. It didn't last very long. He wasn't a fan.

Jonah in a onsie! Real clothes! Hanna Andersson has clothes (although expensive) with flat-locked seams on the inside - so no big seam bunches under the arms. I'm so excited! So far, no blisters in his armpits! But today was our first try, so I'm not sure they would've popped up yet. If it works out, I will be one of their biggest customers, I'm pretty sure. I'm gonna be spending way more money on his clothes than I do on mine. After all, if I can't get it at Target, then I obviously don't need it.

I love his chubby little face! I don't know very many babies who enjoy tummy time, but in time most of them get used to it, and may even start to enjoy it :) I sure hope those Hanna Anderrson clothes work for him. Although the clothes are expensive, you would totally be justified in buying those cute little clothes for Jonah!

Patrice,
You guys were on my heart this weekend and I just had to pray for you all. I couldn't wait to get back home where I could get online and see how Jonah was doing. I am so glad that you have found onesies that will work for him. I pray tonight for Jonah to rest peacefully and just to keep being so adorable.

Nancy said...

He is so cute! SQUEALS! Yay for onesies!

nancy said...

what big eyes he has! He is adorable in the onesie. I have always spent way more on my kids/grandkids clothes than my own! It's ok too! Hope they will work out for you and not cause new blisters!

RLR said...

My word, is he ever CUTE! And growing so much!
My son never liked tummy time, either. I think it just takes them a bit to adjust to something new. Using new muscles and all - and banging their faces into the floor...
How great that you found some clothes that may work! I bet you can find some for less $ at the MANY clothing sales that happen in the area. They'll be coming up again in September!

CastingCares said...

He is adorable. Most of my kids didn't like tummy time either. He is just getting so big.

Hanna Anderson Clothes last and last and last and get softer and softer. Investment shopping!

Jessica said...

He is so adorable....

That first close up is priceless. He is such a handful!!! He has a look on his face like he is up to something!

I will keep praying.

He is already getting so big, and I think he gets cuter every time I see pics.

You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. I specifically pray every time I walk out to my van and see my "We Love Jonah" magnet!

He's so cute!!!

Kelley's Kids said...

I can't decide who he looks more like, his mom or dad! He sure is a beautiful baby and getting so big :)

He is so cute. Horray for finding ready made clothing that might work. It would make your life so much easier. Hanna stuff lasts FOREVER so be sure you save everything for future kids, nieces, nephews, cousins, whoever.

K said...

What a handsome guy! He definitely looks like his momma. Yes, you can look like your mom and still be handsome. People always say my son looks like me - you know, in a "boyish" way. Ha!

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

(Other than my son) he is the cutest baby I have EVER seen! Adorable! He is chunking up!!

Sarah said...

We love Hanna clothes and they look like new after many a wash, although I don't know what Aquaphor does to them :) If you are not too picky about patterns you can get good deals in their sale area - get on the email list and decide quick as sizes sell out.

I found you through MckMama and know neither of you in real life. I enjoy your updates and pray along with all the requests.

Stacey said...

I read your blog, but never comment. I was going to suggest Hannah clothes a while back, but I wasn't sure they would work. We love Hannah and luckily live near a store. They are expensive, but when you catch a sale, they are great!

Katie said...

We love Hanna Andersson! The best part is that they even have underwear that EB kids can wear. The elastic is completely covered in cloth and doesn't bunch, so it's perfect!

yadkinriver said...

beautiful boy!

Jane said...

Loved the pictures, thank you so much for sharing. Jonah is really growing and so precious. He will eventually love tummy time, just keep trying. In regard to the Hanna Andersson clothes, you might try Ebay. I typed in Hanna Andersson boy and right many items came up. I buy most of my grandchildrens clothes on Ebay. Good luck. Continuing to keep all of you in my prayers.

Courtney said...

What a handsome little man! :)

Rose said...

He is looking like a little boy!

Tara said...

He is getting so big! He sure is cute and I agree with you on the Target comment.

Hugs from Iowa,
Tara

Mocha Mama 24 said...

We love Hanna too. Like other people mentioned their sale items can be very reasonable. Nice thing for boys, is their clothes rarely go out of style vs. girls things. So we buy ahead for the future!!

Mr. Jonah looks so sweet in every picture you post.

Melissa said...

He's so cute!

Thanks for sharing,

anna said...

um...what's the word? oh yeah!
a-DOR-able!!!

Mel said...

Oh he is just looking so much like a big boy and think he looks more and more like you every day, Patrice. Thank you for my weekly Jonah Fix.

Kelsey said...

Yay, I got my Jonah fix! He is such a sweet little boy, I just want to hug him and cuddle him.

Love Hannah Anderson clothes. They are so soft and last forever.

Jenny said...

I haven't been here for awhile and Jonah is getting so big! What a cutie pie!

I love Hanna Andersson clothes!

Jen said...

He is ADORABLE!!!

dogmom said...

Jonah is such an adorable baby! Yes, Hanna Andersson has great quality clothes; they are a little bit pricey, but they do last!
I love seeing how Jonah is doing.
You have been blessed:o)) Enjoy every minute because they grow up fast! My 2 sons are 12 yrs. and 11 yrs. and it seemed like I just brought them home from the hospital! I don't know where the time goes?!

WHew! Got my Jonah fix! He looks sooooo cute! Tummy time is never a winner in the beginning...eventually he will love it. I have a mirror by Sassy that came from............yes......Target! It sits upright so when you have them on their tummy...(don't know if you can have him in the floor on a blanky but you can hold the mirror....anyhoo...it sits up on the the floor and has the mirror with shapes and a bird and something else that they can reach for with black and white around the edge...then if you want, on the backside you can put a picture in it...then you can also tie it to the crib and it will hang out facing down toward the crib so they can see it from the bed. My son loves his and still plays with it at 21 months...it was a big hit once he got used to tummy time.

he looks so cute in his onesie! Love the color!

will continuously pray for him and you amaze me everyday with your strength! Isn't it funny how you just do what you have to do for your kids and then you wonder where that strength comes from! We have God to thank for that. I also know this isn't easy. IT isn't easy for any parent who can't make it all better for their child....

But you inspire me everyday!
Give Jonah kisses for me and a hug for yourself!

Shannon said...

He is so so cute. He's lookin good in his onesie, hopefully they will work out for you/him!

Jonah is getting so big. Look at his little chibby cheecks. I am glad you got him in a little onesie. He is such a handsom little boy.

Wanda Wilkinson said...

Happy 3 month birthday. He is even more adorable. He looks like a "little" boy in his onsie. So sweet.

Looks like he had some fun time with mommie & daddy

Love & prayers.

Mindy said...

He is such a cutie!

Shasta said...

He is sooo cute!! I just love those sweet little eyes of his! I really hope the onesie works out, he looks adorable in it!

Kim M said...

Jonah's eyes just draw you to him! He is adorable and so handsome! Stay at it with the tummy time - can't think of anyone who was ever a fan at first. Can't believe he is getting so big - loved your video! Praying in Michigan

Kelli said...

He is simply a doll baby!!! If I could afford HA clothes, I'd buy them all for you!!! Still praying!!

He has got to be the cutest young man I have seen in a long time. His eyes are so incredible. Thanks for sharing. Glad that you found some flat lock seams in clothes. Answered prayers. He looked so cute. I hope you all keep doing better and better, but remember, setbacks will happen. Love to you and yours! Jennifer in Southeast, NC

He is growing like a weed! And just too cute. He looks so alert and happy - I'm glad he's doing so well.
Thank you for sharing, Patrice. We love you all.

Love all the pictures - his expressions are so cute!! Thanks for sharing...and so glad you found some clothes that might work!!! Keeping my fingers crossed....

KM said...

Beautiful photos!

Hope the Hanna A. clothes work out-they are expensive, but built to last! We sometimes find them used at yard sales or thrift stores and they outlast new stuff from other places!

Alyson said...

He is so adorable!!!! I think he looks JUST like you!!!.....Well then I guess that would make you adorable too!! :0)

Blessings,

What a sweet, adorable, beautiful little boy. He is just precious that I cannot help but smile every time I see a picture of him.

Continued prayers on his behalf.

God bless,

Kristy said...

I know the whole tummytime thing is scary, but keep it up (I wish someone had suggested the boppy to me!).

I was terrified of giving Carson tummy time, so I didn't, and he developed a flat spot on his head....which isn't really a big deal (his gorgeous hair covers it), but his pediatrician was concerned about it---sent us for a CT, etc.

Your boy is beautiful Patrice!

Oh my goodness..he just keeps getting cuter and cuter by the day...those EYES! I am a HUGE fan of Hanna Andersson clothes. My son has skin sensitivities and ONLY wears Hanna underwear. They are expensive, however, get on their e-mail list and you'll find out about sales well before the catalog shows up. Many times I get stuff on sale and rarely do I pay full price for their items. He will outgrow stuff before they wear out as their clothes are incredibly well made and my kids have been wearing their stuff for almost 11 years! For special events, like b-days or holidays, ask for gift cards from there because they do have those and that way you can buy his stuff with a gift card too. Plus, check Craigslist and type in Hanna Andersson in the search bar...almost always if people sell their stuff then they will list that brand name in their listing because I do it on mine. Continuing to pray in Michigan for your sweet little man. Hugs (( )) (( )) (( ))

Laura A said...

Hooray for onesies! He's SO sweet - love those cheeks and that tummy! Don't worry - none of mine liked tummy time either!

I've never bought Hanna Andersson clothes, but my friends tell me they're worth the price - they don't shrink or fade and they are very durable. So you're getting a lot of bang for your buck! And sweet Jonah is most certainly worth it!

Love you all and am continuing to pray!
Laura

jenn said...

purejoy said...

i love his face with the picture of you husband on the floor. he looks like such an imp! he's flat-out adorable! and real clothes?? too awesome. what a cool milestone!

Tara said...

He gets cuter and cuter the chubbier he gets. :) He's a beautiful little guy.

Kirsten: said...

OMG, he is sooooooooo cute!!! Love his little face!!!

Ma Ledford said...

He's growing so much! It is really cool to see his little face changing. BTW, we got our magnets and love them! We were at a graduation last week and there were 3 other cars in the lot with Jonah magnets - AWESOME!

Granna said...

Love the pictures, especially the one of him holding his bottle. Too cute! He's precious!

Michigan City, IN - Lighthouse Place

Kittery, ME - Tidewater Outlet Mall

Albertville, MN - Albertville Premium Outlet

Lake Oswego, OR - Oswego Towne Sq.

Williamsburg, VA - Prime Outlets

Man...he looks so different! Look at the difference in the pictures on the sidebar and the pictures today. He's SO cute and looks like such a little boy!

You are a cutie little Jonah. Tummy time is usually not a favorite, but is necessary for development ie strengthning neck muscles. He will get use to it over time. One good thing to do is put an interesting toy in front of the Boppy (our PT recommended the Dancing Bugs made by Lamaze). Try Craigslist or Ebay to find it. This toy will distract him and tummy time will be over before he knows it. Of course other toys that move and have sound will also work. Good Luck.

Rachel Dominguez said...

Wow what a doll baby!!! Love the onsie too!

Teri said...

He has got the cutest face! And those cheeks!!!

Oh, how I hope that Hanna clothes work for you! My autistic son lives in them. You have to catch it perfect- but they have great sales, and an outlet in Indiana (I don't know if anywhere else.) And, they wear like iron

Jonah is SO adorable! I can't believe how big he's getting (and I've only been following for a few weeks).

He's such a happy little guy.

Many blessings,
Allison & family

Anne Randall said...

Hi Patrice. I am Kim Tucker's friend Anne Randall from Larchmont. I've been following your story from the beginning. I've never posted a comment but I just had to after seeing the ADORABLE pictures of Jonah. He's such a beautiful little baby. He's so alert and gorgeous and happy looking. Enjoy him! You are in my prayers always.

Love, Anne

Sunny said...

YOu might also like the "Soft Clothing" brand. Her goal is to make clothes for kiddos with autism who have texture issues, but I imagine it would be great at preventing blisters as well. Here's the link;

Penny said...

My grandson is 3 months old, but his head (a little big=) is still wobbly. We got him interested in tummy time by putting him on his nursing pillow like you did and putting a mirror on the floor in front of him. He "talked" to that baby for a long time. So cute! You might want to try that. Hope it works.

Lorraine-bo said...

Not sure why, but the look he has in the 3rd pic my be my fave of this set - He's so darling :)

Yay for a onesie! Praying it works well.

Pray continued attempts at tummy time last a little longer each time!

Stephanie said...

I think Jonah looks like his momma.
He is so beautiful!!!

APA and NBK's Mom said...

Those are some kissable cheeks! He is so perfect. His eyes are absolutely captivating!

michelle in va said...

Yeah for real clothes!!!!!! I pray these will work out for you guys. He gets cuter and cuter. Continuing to pray each and every day!!!

Anonymous said...

Patrice - try eBay for Hanna Anderson clothes!

Mama10EE said...

He has the most gorgeous eyes! I am particular to eyes since my baby has pretty ones (of course I am partial), and Jonah's are so expressive! I hope Hanna Andersson works out. Plus as a bonus, you all can have matching holiday PJs or something :) Always praying for you all.

Anonymous said...

There are Hanna Andersen outlet stores and they ship! If their clothes will work, call them and I bet they'll shop the floor for you. Their outlet prices can be great . I've gotten some $40 dresses for $5-8. I don't want you putting Jonah in dresses, but you get the idea!

I can't believe I've been reading your blog since Jonah's arrival, and it took a Hanna Andersen comment to get me to post!

Muriel and Jerry said...

gorgeous gorgeous boy. I got my maget today and stuck it on my file cabinet at work.

Amy B said...

Yay for pictures! He's so adorbale in his little onesie. I've seen Hanna Anderson outlets, is there perhaps one near you? There's actually one in my town & I would be more than willing to pick some up & send 'em your way...
One that note, my son just woke up from his (way too short!) nap & I have to head out the door to work.
Blessings & continued prayers being sent your way,

Maybe you should post a "Hanna Anderrson" wish list.....people might want to know which items work best...:)He is a beautiful baby!

Heather said...

Oh my gosh, he is so adorable!! And happy 3-month-old birthday Jonah!!!

And don't feel bad. Both my kids hated tummy time. My daughter never even crawled, she scooted on her butt.

You guys are always in my prayers.

Debbie,mother of two said...

He looks so cute in his clothes. I am glad you found something he can wear. I bet it made you feel so good to put the onies on him. I love the picture with his dad. Still praying for you all.

Patrice,
Are all the clothes at this company made the same way? I see they are having a sale right now.

Ebeling Family said...

Yay!! SO glad you got new pics of Jonah up- I can't get over how cute a baby he is!
And he looks awesome in the onsie- hope those work out for you!

great pics!! He is adorable!!

chapinamom said...

We love ya, Jonah!! Thanks for posting so many pics of Mr. Personality! I think he looks like both of you, and mostly he looks like Jonah!

Heather said...

He is seriously so precious and adorable! My daughter Georgia just turned a year old and she says if things don't work out with Quinn, she'll be next in line. So long as Jonah doesn't mind a slightly "older woman"! :)

Amber Schmidt said...

Is it just me or does his cuteness factor just keep increasing??? If the Hanna clothes DO work... one for you... EBAY!

You can get some GREAT deals there!

also... I think that the company will need to become his official clothing sponsor! LOL

Rebecca said...

I've not been by your blog in a few weeks. I've enjoyed getting a bit caught up. Jonah is SERIOUSLY cute!
