jonah's first trick


This video is kind of hard to hear, but basically it's Jonah imitating Matt sticking his tongue in and out and making a funny noise. Obviously Jonah can't make the noise, but he's trying really hard to imitate the action. This is the one thing that makes Jonah laugh out loud. He won't do it often, but when he does, it's because Matt is doing this. I didn't catch any laughs on camera, but did get some really good smiles.

My daughter (17 months) and I loved watching Jonah tonight! She kept signing baby over and over and smiled so big. My son then came in and asked who I watching and I told him, "baby Jonah." He asked, "the baby we prayed for?" Of course was my answer!

He's so smart!!!! :) What a cutie pie!

Jill said...

I hope his new nickname is cheeks. They are awesome.

Isn't it amazing the ridiculous things that parents are compelled to do to make their children laugh/smile/coo.

Patrice,

Seriously.Stinking.Adorable! Jonah's all set to be Rambo for Halloween...Love it!

Ang said...

Awwww!!! He's so presh! It was great to see him at church on Sunday! Such big smiles and wide baby blues! I can't imagine what you go through each day. As I watched him dig at his eyes and rub his skin, I just wanted to stop him, but I know he has to do it because he can't just stop living. You guys are doing an excellent job. I'm so glad you're able to come back to Pinedale.

I loved that. What great smiles. Jonah is loved and he knows it. To him, he's got the greatest life in the world. That's all that matters.

Precious! This is just one of the many times he will want to be like his daddy :-) Little boys are precious!

You have a beautiful and adorable son! That video is priceless!

lifelaughsandlove said...

Awww, so cute! I think it's so funny how you can just see the wheels in his head turning as he tries so hard to imitate his daddy. I think I say it just about every time, but I just love his chubby cheeks. I know you say he is only in the 10th percentile for weight, but he looks perfectly chubby to me! (Although, my son is only in the 1st percentile, so most babies look chubby to me :) Thanks for sharing!

He is so Precious!!! I love how intently he is watching his daddy. That is one thing that doesn't stop the whole time they are growing up (although, as teenagers, they manage to be a WHOLE lot more subtle about it!).

I went into Target today, for the first time in months. I thought about you (looked for you, you aren't visiting Topeka, KS by chance are you??!!). I definitely prayed for your family. Target works well as a prayer reminder!!!

Thank you for sharing your family with us!

I vote we get more video clips of Jonah! I could watch that everyday, sooooooo cute!

Rebekah said...

Ok yes, Jonah was SOOOOO cute and completely was in awwww of his daddy, but I think what made me laugh was Matt making that noise...oh the things we do to get expressions out of our kids. This was priceless. Thanks P.

Shawna from Texas said...

SO sweet! As any Mommy can tell you , it's those amazing little things that get you through the tougher stuff. Just heartwarming~ Jonah's eyes are just glued to your hubby! Thanks for sharing such a precious moment!

LitterOf1 said...

I had a really long day and I can honestly say that this video of Jonah made my night complete!!! He doesn't just do the "trick" once, but multiple times... so you know there is a lot of thought involved.

Keep up the great work - Jonah is so blessed to have you as parents!

Jennifer said...

From a lurker who has never commented, but I thoroughly enjoy catching up on Jonah and praying for your family! Jonah is so cute as he is trying to mimick Matt, he stole my heart!!! Enjoy all of these special milestones, they are priceless.

Jackie said...

dragonflyz in June said...

I have not been online in so long that I had three posts to read, a lot has happened! First, WOW, your new basement is absolutely beautiful!! What a blessing. I am so happy for you that you have a space perfect for Jonah and his needs!!

I already feel like I need to take so much with me when I visit friends or family (just in case things), I can't imagine how much you would have to. What is awesome is that no one would think twice about how much you bring, just that you are prepared.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this video. Jonah is so beautiful, so sweet. And oh my does he LOVE his Daddy!! So cute. I love seeing him grow, what a sweety. God really has blessed you both, what an angel you have!

Nikki said...

Okay, that is TOO CUTE FOR WORDS. What a sweetie! :)

Robin said...

I will never forget seeing that first glimpse of the little person inside of my daughter. (and she is now 21)It is the most amazing thing! Jonah is a smarty and he has a strong will for life. I don't know if you have videos, but my daughter required maximum stimulation very early on. I see a lot of that in Jonah. Again, she was little many moons ago, but she watched Disney sing a long videos at 3 months. They move quickly and change from song to song so they don't lose interest.
Jonah has stolen my heart and I love seeing him grow and change! Thanks for sharing him.

Love you all.
Robin

Raising Arrows said...

That is so funny! He's looking less and less like a newborn and more like an infant! I'm amazed at how he's grown lately. He is so precious! We got our birth announcement this weekend...thanks so much!!!!! I can't wait to show the kids at youth tomorrow night! They will be thrilled!

That is amazing!!!! He is just one PERFECT baby, in my eyes!!!!!!!!!

How smart is he????/ Totally smart!

Cindy McNeal said...

Babies are so amazing aren't they? They are little sponges that absorb something and run with it! He is beautiful! I just learned of you guys today. I can't imagine what all you have been through, but I will be praying often for your little guy. I tried to do some research on what he has, and there is very little. That must be so frustrating. I hope at least you have an amazing doctor whom is very well trained in this. As well trained as you can be in something as rare. Our families thoughts and prayers are headed your way. God Bless you and your family and little Jonah!

I love how hard he was concentrating on his daddy and trying to imitate what he was doing. He couldn't really smile and do that at the same time....too hard concentrating on "monkey see. monkey do". So CUTE!

Precious, Precious, Precious BOY! I want to squeeze those checks (of course I wouldn't but I sure would like to!) and just give him so many kisses. Those blue eyes are just amazing! LOVE seeing him...just continues to brighten my day and I can't wait to share the video with my two children that pray for baby Jonah. Hope you all have a blessed evening!
