Jonas got some extra dad time with two snow days this year already. First things first: let's read! Jonas brought the pillow onto dad's lap to lay and listen to some favorite books.
Travis has turned Jonas on to the wonders of ice cream, big surprise. The two of them share bites of "ice keeee" while watching all the latest sporting events.

Jonas enjoyed the first snow of the season this past week. He is very patient about getting geared up when he knows he's going out to mess around in the snow. He likes to cruise up and down the sidewalk like a puffball looking for Cory, or as he calls him, "KKKKKK". On Monday, he kept pointing to Cory's house and crossing the street, but Cory wasn't home. Oh, well, perhaps another day, big guy.
Check out the fifth picture in the slide show. This is Jonas's cheesy smile. If you ask him to smile, he will give you this cheeseball smile, which looks more like he is smelling a skunk than enjoying himself. He also has a fake laugh, which he pulls out when Travis and I laugh, but he doesn't know why. I guess he just wants to fit in with the grownups.

Another one from the archives. This was just released from the Jonas Wrestling Federation Film bank from October of 2008. Jonas was doing well early on in the match vs. Grandma, but as soon as he gave up the top rope to move down low the match was over. Jonas fell for the oldest trick in the book and paid the price by being snuggle slammed over and over again. Will the youngsters ever learn?

Jonas went to visit Uncle Helge and Aunt Sue a couple weeks ago. Jonas got a chance to spend sometime in Great Grandparent's house that Uncle Helge and Aunt Sue have made their own. It was fun to cruise around a place that I really only have a vision of from the eyes of a child. We went down to the old playground of the school that Dad went to from kindergarten to fourth grade. It was fun just hanging out swinging and sliding around.

Jonas had some visitors from the highlands a couple of weeks back. It seems like such a long time ago; he wasn't even walking! Even though he wasn't walking he had a chance to talk a little computers with Andrew. He was able to identify the apple on the screen.
After a little while the computer thing got old. Jonas really isn't into big'ol computers like a laptop. But what always entertains is a cuddly dog like Hamish. He had a few near full speed crawl head-to-head interactions with Hamish the dog, but this time tried to attack from above. Andrew tried to use "the force" to prevent Jonas from falling off the couch. It turns out that Andrew has a low metaclorion count so "the force" did not work.
After a scolding by his dad and an unsuccessful vertical mount of the dog Jonas was a bit upset. In the meanwhile Andrew found everything quite amusing.
All that Jonas can say is, "Watch out 'cause I'm gonna get you, doggies!"

Finally, Jonas got to ride in a horse drawn wagon, which he truly enjoyed to the point that he wet through his pants. The horses gave Jonas quite a ride, to which he replied "sssththth" (silly).

In the video, Jonas has just woken up from his afternoon nap and has decided to read a book. Jonas is getting quite a vocabulary, at least of the animal noise variety. "Fish" and "bunny" are both actions the animals do, "kitty" is the noise he makes when HE sees a kitty (a scream--which he doesn't do in the video), and "doggie" is just the word "doggie", I suppose because our dogs don't make noises. One of his other favorite words and objects is "truck", which sounds like "kkkkkkk"; sort of like he's about to hack something up. Every time he turns the page in his truck book or sees a car go by he says, "kkkkkk".
