Another successful visit by doting relatives of JBM. Not only did Grandpa and Grandma get to see Jonah eat a heaping helping of sand at the beach, they were also treated to the patented "Never Ending Runny Nose." Tis' a sight to behold let me tell you. Despite these proclivities, Jonah did manage to once again charm the pants off of them. He's like the Energizer bunny that way I guess.
The onslaught of words continues by the way. Our little JBM is actively saying no. Here's a sample of a daily conversation:
Parent: Want to take a bath Jonah?
Jonah: No. (with head shaking)
Parent: Are you ready for bed wee one?
Jonah: No.(with more head shaking)
Parent Can we put on your pajamas buddy?
Jonah: No. (emphatic head shaking)
Parent: Want to go to Disneyland?
Parent: Nicely played little man.
Well, we all made it back safe and sound from our trip to Oakland for Kieron and Erica's wedding. Woo hoo newlyweds!
Jonah got to spend some quality time with Grandma Susan and when we say quality, we mean QUALITY. The little tyke is a seducer let me tell you. He waves, he smiles he says "Hiiiii" in his sing song voice and the ladies melt. Three women in the airport almost took him with them. Which probably would have been a good thing for Mom and Dad since JBM was in the process of blowing off his afternoon nap. "You want him? Be my guest!"
Anyhoo, did you notice the little nugget of a milestone in that above paragraph? Jonah is talking! He says Hi, Buh-bye and nana (for banana). He's also starting to say bird, ball and bubble but that all comes out as Buhhh. When he drops something, he says "uh-oh" even when he drops it on purpose. It's very cute. The ladies love it. Next on the agenda for phrases he will speak are "Birdie-num-num." and "I'll change that diaper for you Dad."
What's more American than cheese and mothers I ask you?
