Studying for a visit

Jonas got a chance to peak at some potential formatting issues for his presentation before his grandparents arrived this last weekend. He looked up a couple of items in the APA manual to make sure he was referencing his third party sources correctly. After he cleared up the formatting issues he was able to concentrate on snuggling and throwing stuff around with Grandpa. The grandparents are still making funny faces at Jonas, even after more than a year to get used to him.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Jonas tried on his new winter coat this week. He may be looking for snowflakes, but I doubt the rest of us Wisconsinites are!

Anytime is a good time to read

Jonas has become really attached to reading books. He can't put a good book down, even when he is getting things squared away below the belt. So far the books have been good enough to make sure that none of the pages make it to the restricted access zone.

Words, words, words...

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".

Happy Birthday, big guy!

Jonas's first birthday par-tay!

Grandma T won the first annual JBOC (Jonas Birthday Obstacle Course) and won a birthday bottle filled with M&Ms and a certificate of achievement.
