Feeding Greta

Greta can't seem to get enough delicious air to eat.

Dancin' dancin' DANCIN'!

Apparently Jonas's fear of the paparazzi continues, although I snuck up on this jam session a few days ago.

The real world

Jonas has come to love living in "the real world". No, I'm not referring to the TV show, but the fact that he's been trying out different roles. You'll see what I mean from the slideshow.

A little abstraction

Jonas asked to see the chalk bin, so I let him go to town on the freshly scrubbed pantry doors. He normally doesn't draw much when given his crayons, but he happily drew with different colored chalk for several 20 minute periods. Now he is "perfecting" his art by rubbing it a bit in places to blend the lines together. Perhaps he just needed a new medium with which to express himself.

Fatty boom-ba-latty

I told Jonas that we would be having some french fries, one of his favorite foods, for dinner on Thursday. From the time the fries came out of the freezer until they were finished baking in the oven, Jonas whined "Feh-ffyyy" and threw himself on the floor in front of the oven. No amount of explaining about eating yucky frozen fries would abate the fussing.
Jonas ate A LOT of fries, hard boiled egg, cheese, broccoli, carrots, peas, soy "chicken", almonds, and 6 ounces of milk. As I picked him up out of his high chair I felt a hard round lump under his sweater. That, I learned upon further inspection, was his belly, as you can see him proudly displaying below.

Elmer Fudd

Jonas has been roaming the neighborhood hunting bunnies for the past week after seeing a little cottontail hop under our front shrubbery. He has not had any luck. Despite calling to them by making bunny noises, he had yet to see another one. He was a persistent little chap, however. Nary an outdoor trip passed without a few rounds of hunt the bunnies under the neighborhood shrubs, as you will see below.

Jonas got lucky on Tuesday. After calling to the bunnies and checking under the bushes for a few minutes, we decided to walk on in further pursuit. As we turned to leave, a little bunny hopped out to show off his camouflage. Jonas "Fudd" Tangen managed to spot it. Instead of a rousing rendition of "Kill the Wabbit", he decided instead to sniff at it and make conjectures about the bunny's other daily activities.

We are lucky we don't have neighbors downstairs or Jonas the elephant would drive them up the wall with his boot stompin' action.

Pig man

This is an APB: We have located the pig man near Hilldale Mall. He is trapped under a dining room table and appears to have made himself incapacitated by giggles. Approach with caution.
