bummage begone


A few months ago, Jonah's Child Developmental Services Case Manager asked me if Jonah reacts differently to children than to adults. It was just one of those standard development questions. Anyway, I had to say I didn't know because he is rarely around kids. His close-by cousins have been sick a lot these last few months (colds and the like), and he doesn't do daycare or the nursery at church because of germs. Anyway, I told her no.

But Ms. B, just to answer your question - "Uh, yeah, just a little."

Please enjoy this two and a half minutes of Jonah thinking his cousins are absolutely hilarious.

I'm a little late tonight (Christmas with Matt's family), but I hope you have read Leah's blog by now. Everything went really well today. The g-tube was placed without incident, and she had eight teeth removed. And thanks to all those prayers, there is no damage to her mouth or face. Praise God!

Please continue to pray for the rest of Leah's hospital stay and that she will remain infection free. They hope to go home on Saturday. Also, please be in prayer for Tripp tomorrow as he's also getting his teeth removed.

Thank you so much for your prayers. I know Meg, Courtney, and I all appreciate them very much.

Oh, I needed that! It sure put a smile on my face. So awesome to see a longer film of baby Jonut...his photos are always so beautiful but the in action video gives you a much better "view". Thanks for sharing! Glad to hear all is well with Leah, praying for Courtney and family tonight...I know it has got to be a terribly worrisome night. Hoping all goes well. Hope your family has a wonderful "New-Year"! Love from our family to yours....

Came across your blog today because I saw it on the Triad Smarty Pants blog list.
I am overwhelmed at the strength and love in your family. What a beautiful blog! This video made my day!

How cute! What great cousins, to put on a little show for him. I'm glad everyone was well and y'all got to have some great fun.

What a cute video! And I love how the reward of a laughing baby brings out the comic in the older kids, and Making Jonah Laugh becomes an entertaining activity for them too. Blessings all around.

Love that laughing and those kicking feet (and I hope there was no gusher at the end).

My 2 year old daughter is sitting on my lap as I watch the video, and she just said to me, "I like that cute baby!"
He is adorable. And that laugh is the best sound on earth.

I don't know who had the most fun: Jonah or his cousins :)

Penny said...

Loved watching those feet kicking like crazy! My 10 month old grandbaby is the same way--- the older kids just walk into the room and his face lights up. So sweet! =)

Jen Burns said...

The kicking is beyond funny! How cute! I love hearing his squealing!

So cute! There's nothing better than baby, belly laughs! He is so pleasantly plump, and his face looks great!

Jonah looks so handsome! His face looks like it is doing good not to mention his stylin' hair!

I love the video Patrice. I have never seen Jonah so animated. He truly reacts differently to children than adults! He is so precious!
