a few of jonah's tricks

Jonah actually cooperated and allowed me to get a few of his latest tricks on camera today. He's got a few others he'll do now and then, but these are his go-to crowd (Mommy and Daddy) pleasers. The waving and saying "bye-bye" is very new.


In other news, his OT started coming again yesterday. She's going to start coming hopefully weekly to help with some of Jonah's feeding/aversion issues. While we had him in the high chair she did some playing/evaluation with him and she says that he's... wait for it... wait for it...

ABOVE AVERAGE in his fine motor skills. "He's operating at a solid 19 or 20 months."

WHAT???!!!

He's never been above average in anything. I was so giddy. Now, if we can just get this kid walkin', we'll be on our way. I'm just so proud of him for everything he's accomplishing - crawling, pulling up, cruising, talking, and having the most rockin' fine motor skills of any 18 month old on the block. I'm pretty sure there's no way he could possibly know how much we love him. He continues to be our hero.

M, my four year old, just said, "That's a really scary bear sound that little baby made!" So, good job, Jonah!

Sarah said...

So cute! The animal sounds were great, gave us a huge smile to see!

Great job, Jonah!! While watching this, my husband said, "Did she just whistle at her kid?" We say that totally tongue in cheek because we catch ourselves doing the same thing - that's what happens when you have a dog for your first child, huh? Congrats, guys, Jonah is doing fantastic! Blessings!

that was so cute!!! I don't comment often but I have been following your blog since Jonah was first born. he is adorable and I know you must be so proud of him. Hey I also follow Daylon's blog but haven't been able to get it to work lately. I was wondering if you might know how he's doing or what might be wrong with their blog. Well take care and i can't wait to see more videos of that very smart boy!!!

GO Jonah!! I love the growling bear noises! And the one-finger Southern Wave. Precious boy! Can't wait to show the Little As (who have been clamoring to see Jonah pics of late!!)

Have a great Wednesday!

Just wanted to say that I shared some of your quotes and the Psalm in our staff devotions today. Thank you for the great post. I need to get my act together and read the book. Also, such a sweet post full of good news!

Our grandson just started to walk and he's 20 months old. Within a week, he was running. Jonah will get the hand of it and start walking when he's ready. Don't forget how long it took him to crawl.

Such a cutie, as ever!

I've been following your blog for quite awhile now but don't take the time to comment. As a former toddler teacher I had to say how cute Jonah was saying the animal sounds and waving good-bye. He made my day.

So sweet, I do wish you would buy that boy some toys, poor thing has to play in the laundry basket (haha) Just like all kids, rather have pots/pans, boxes & laundry baskets & trash cans than the toys we spend so much money on :)

He is way ABOVE average, off the charts past EXCELLENT in cuteness & sweetness. Way to go Jonah on those fine motor skills & that is with those little hands previously being bandages..What a miracle & blessing he is.

Love to all

Heather said...

Ani said...

Hi Patrice,
I don't comment very often but I've been reading your blog for a while and that video absolutely melted my heart. Jonah is such an adorably delicious baby and I think the way you talk to him is just so sweet, tender and beautiful!! You are a wonderful mommy and gorgeous Jonah is so lucky to have you. Thank you for sharing!

Best,
