Official video will be available soon as we record and digitize a future rollover.
Jonas spent Saturday in Menomonee Falls celebrating the marriage of his second cousins, Becky and Collen. Jonas was a bit too rowdy to attend any of the formal aspects of the marriage ceremonies. He did however spend the day with his relatives showing them his need for constant movement, even while sleeping. Jonas is like a beluga whale that is always moving, even while sleeping. (Belugas and other toothed whales just shutdown half their brain at a time when they sleep so they can keep cruising the oceans. Sorta what Jonas's parent's brains are trying to do with the new sleep cycle.)
Mom and Jonas both seem to be taking positions to be noted in the upcoming presidential election cycle. Hopefully the candidates will see Jonas's blog and recognize the need to make the dependent childcare tax deduction larger than ever now that we can take the deduction. It's pretty obvious that Jonas is contributing to government pork by his bulging waistline (see pic). Mom will get Jonas's official weight on Thursday. (Side note: We actually don't mind paying taxes!) Mom is sporting an anti-nugget T-shirt supporting the environmental green movement. Reduce that carbon footprint....be a vegetarian.

Auntie Ashley stopped by on way back down from a little cabin retreat before she headed back to Chicago.
Jonas looks cute in hats. So that is why there is a picture of him in a hat.

Silence of the Diapers...or Silence of the Lambs. It turns out that Jonas's bamboo diapers appear like
skinned lambs. Mom and Dad have not turned into omnivores, but it appears that Jonas has! These diapers are scheduled to begin operation soon.
Day 11 diaper count was not without controversy. (Congrats to the five that guessed correctly.) We anticipated a fairly high number, and the Vegas line was at 12 based on the 8,9, and 10 day performances. As you know what shows on paper doesn't matter, you have to play the game and see what happens. The uninitiated probably didn't consider any wildcards, but those that did probably made the right call. It turns out the wild card was Jonas's first extensive barf. He evacuated his stomach contents all over his mom, clothes, and the every thing else in the immediate vicinity. Jonas probably didn't know he was full, and kept eating only to have the partially digested breast-milk burst out his mouth. Everyone was okay, but the diaper count was certainly affected as this was Jonas's lowest diaper count of the last few days. If you haven't counted the diapers in the picture he ended up filling 8 diapers in the 24 hour period.

If you've ever played the game frogger you have probably seen this before: Jonas is training to behave like a frog. This day 6 training video shows Jonas's potential ability to ribbit and hop like a frog.

Jonas peeks and poses for his first "official photo shoot" in his basinet. As many of you know, baby's receive an upgrade in cuteness when some sort of object is placed on their head. Jonas is no exception to this rule with his striped wool hat on his head.
