Jonas 8 Months

March was the longest month in the history of the western calendar so I’m going to have to work really hard to remember what happened in Jonas’ world. There were a lot of physical advancements in the right direction but nothing completed yet.

Ok, he completed the cutting through of more teeth giving him a total count of 4 teeth. All on the bottom, nothing on the top although we think something’s coming soon.

Actually, now that I think about it, Jonas was sick virtually all of March. As soon as he’d get better, BAM! Two days later he’d start with the nose running again. Now, I understand that babies have virtually no immune system but really, Nature? At this point you’re just a jerk who’s picking on a poor little baby who just wants to stand up and eat blueberries in his food net.

Loves him some blue berries.

Jonas really doesn’t want to sit anymore. He’s so over sitting or laying down unless there’s a bottle in his mouth. Or a bear:

We found his Valentine's bear from Gramma and Grampa. Jaden had it hidden in her suitcase.

Ever since we showed him the joy of standing up on his own while holding onto a rail or coffee table, he really has little patience for anything else

WHEEEEEE!

WHEEEEEE!

There are two situations where he will be ok with sitting.

One: when there’s a pinwheel involved:

Two: when he’s trying to get a toy with every fiber of will in his chubby little legs:

Can you see the determination on his face? After this video I left him to go check on dinner and came back to see him with his legs wedged up to his tushy under the couch. So he’s got backwards and turning around down. Now he just needs to work on forward.

I’m sorry, I suck really really hard at these monthly updates. The whole point of these is to keep a log of Jonas’ milestones but I don’t actually keep track of them during the month…I keep meaning to work on that but…yeah…

At any rate, Jonas, you’re right on track with everything and

OH!!! We don’t want to be those parents but there’s some speculation that Jonas might be talking…He’s yelled “DADA!” looking for Matt and “MAMAMAMA!” when he’s looking for me. See, he yells it and we look and he smiles like, “Hey! You heard me, great! Get me a bottle.”

He’s also been laying his head on our shoulders which is oh my gosh sweet.

Oh and he slept in the closet during my jewelry party.

The pack n play fit perfectly in the closet/sound studio in Matt's music room.

Jonas, dude, we love you.

Happy 8 Months, Wonderboy!
