a funny jonah moment

This is a really funny (in my humble opinion, of course) video of Jonah from today. He was doing his fake laugh sitting in the rocking chair. I wanted to get it on film, but any time I try to record him, he stops what he's doing and stares (and usually grunts) at the camera.

So today I videoed him from the side for a while so he couldn't see me, and then I let him see me on purpose.

And the change when he sees the camera was so funny. I was literally crying and getting a stomach ache from laughing.

You may not think it's as funny as we did, but Matt's Mom and I were certainly entertained... as you will see. Please excuse the camera shaking. You guys know I can't hold it still when I get tickled.

So cute! I turned on the video and my son who is 15 months old immediatley looked at the screen and was laughing. I think he might have enjoyed it more than you and your mother in law. :)

That's hilarious! (He'll have the same look on his face in about 16 years when he's sneaking in the house after curfew!) ;) Jonah is so adorable.

That is just to cute. Totally different baby once he notices the camera on him. It is jut to dang cute.

There is nothing cuter than a baby trying out his voice. And then, when he realizes he's being taped, he has to ham it up. He's is completely adorable and very, very funny! Like his mommy!

Too funny - I love it! It was almost like, "Mom, I was saving my laughs for you and Grandma - you just recorded our secret." If not that, it was "Mom, you're getting sucked into that black boxy thing!! Help her Grandma!!" He is so sweet!

Maybe Jonah is going to be a star or a leader - Caroline came running over to see him when I was playing it - just like someone else posted about their 15 month old. Jon came running too... :)

That made me laugh out loud. It looked like he was so aghast that you were secretly taping him and then he was silently giving you a piece of his mind :)

So cute! It looked like he was thinking "how could you?!?". And, he was really scolding you--silently! :)

Well, I was also laughing out loud! What a precious, cute, funny little guy. I heard one of you ask Jonah on the video if he was trying to click. Is that what you do when you videotape him? It looks like that is his automatic response to seeing the camera!! What a smart little fellow!!! thanks for sharing that--it actually made my day!

So adorable! He was looking between the two of you like you'd just played a horrible joke on him. That was great! =) Hope the trip to Target went well!

Nancy said...

Adorable! Love to hear you laugh too!

Staci said...

So cute! It kind of reminded me of a silent movie when he saw the camera. I was waiting for the subtitles so I could hear him fussing at you for having the nerve to tape him without his consent :)

Thanks! I needed that! Nothing can make me smile quite like a dose of Jonah. What a funny little monkey he is! Or perhaps the correct animal would be a fish with his mouth movements.

it is moments like this that make me so grateful to god for randomly selecting us, somehow and someway, to enter your lives through your blog. jonah brings us great joy at a time in our lives when crisis seems to dictate our days with my husbands cancer and my 91 year old moms heart ailments. thank you so much for continually bringing a smile.

Oh I just love that video, he is such a doll and...what a ham! Too too cute! Thanks for the giggle.

Jill said...

That is so funny! I'm pretty sure he (silently) said "Mom! How long have you been taping me!? I just can't believe you would do that!" He was definitely telling you something!

I was laughing too. His mouth movements could be used for a video like the E-Trade commercials with the talking babies. "Shankapotomus" is my favorite one.

Jonah would be perfect.

So cute. He is such a blessing.
