Playing Catch Up {According to Jonah}

I blogged every single week for the first 52 weeks of Jonah's life. I haven't really posted about his growth this year and I miss that. I love going back and reading posts from a year ago so I thought it would be nice to record some of the things I've been keeping up with on my phone for the last couple of months here. On the bloggity. Just in case my phone crashes. Ya know. I don't want to forget this stuff.

I plan to start posting updates like this from time to time to remember funny + cute things Jonah is doing and saying lately.  Our life, "according to Jonah".

Let's catch up...

February 7th, 2014
Jonah started saying "me" this week. When he wants something he pats his little chest and says "me". In addition to Momma and Da, he said "wa wa wa" for Chihuahua (he loves this book we have about puppies), "gak-ses" for Glasses, and "cah cah it" for Chocolate this week. He also asked for tea for the first time (he gets to drink sweet tea at both Grand parents houses), and has started patting the ground and saying "ssss ssss" for sit down NOW, Mom. Who could say no to that?!

February 23rd, 2014
Jonah started combining words this week. He added please, ice and water to his vocab bank. He also said COOKIE ("took-ie") for the first time!! He also told me this afternoon that he wanted a "foot" "sohie" (fruit smoothie). Little rascal!

March 5th, 2014
Jonah said "pup" last night for his cup. He's said it all day today. Pup. Pup. He will also say Cookie if he can't find it. That's new. He's been really clingy this week and has been crying when I take him to school. Also a new thing. Not really fond of that one. He loves school?! Must be a phase.

March 20th, 2014
Last night Jonah said mine Mommy" pointing to my slush because he wanted a drink. He recognizes the color blue and will point and specifically want his blue paci. This week he started saying "bayball" and loves to swing his "bat'. It's crazy that he knows these words. He's starting to put two to three words together like "not dat bad", which is something that Jeremy taught him to say to me. Like, it's not that bad Momma when he spills all of his milk. Crazy kid. He's started swatting at us when he doesn't get his way. I blame his Daddy.

March 22nd, 2014
Jonah said his name "no nah" this week for the very first time!! He's also saying "mine shoes" and anything else he doesn't want you to play with. It's all mine- "mine mommy" when he sees me with a drink!

April 2nd, 2014
Tonight we were sitting in Jonah's room and he came from our room with my bra in his hands and clearly said, "my baww". So stinking hilarious!! He put it on his arms like you would a bra. I mean. How does he even know what a bra is?!?

April 28th, 2014
This week Jonah started associating different things together (Dada/Josh/jump) after I told him that we were going to Joshua's house when Daddy got home from work (he LOVES to jump on the trampoline at his cousin's). He is also answering every question to "yes". And will make a choice between two different things (chicken nuggets or a bean burrito, he always chooses bean burritos!). There isn't much that he can't say now. He doesn't quite talk in complete sentences, but he says one-three words at a time. He loves to go to the "box" (mailbox) in the afternoons and is obsessed with tractors, riding lawn mowers, keys (he only wants real keys, not the fake toys) and buses. He's been really clingy again with me and has started letting us cuddle him a lot. He's staying the week with his grandparents next week while I'm in China. Dreading being away from him.

May 26th, 2014
Jonah says so much now. He basically talks in complete sentences. He says "I do it" to everything and he's going through a total Momma phase. He still loves his paci and Cookie. He can make decisions for himself and knows exactly what he wants. He loves to chat with us. When he's been naughty he will say he's sorry and give us a big hug. He's very stubborn and strong willed! We pray for our food together at dinner, and he holds our hands, bows his head and then says (loudly!) AMEN! Singing is his favorite. He's started singing his ABC's and is especially fond of "X" in the song, and "meeee" at the end. It's the cutest.

June 1st, 2014
Jonah has started adding a Y to the end of everything lately. Cuppy. Milky. Parky. Blocky. Glovey. I think it's adorable and think he started because he realized that both Cookie and Paci have a Y sound at the end of the word. And, out of the blue this week he started singing "Let it Go" all on his own. Loudly. He's also obsessed with playing the drums on everything and playing golf. He calls his clubs his "golf bats". Everyday when we get home he wants to go outside and play baseball or golf. Total boy.

June 16th, 2014
Jonah went to his first Astros game last week and has also learned the words to "Take Me Out to The Ball-game". It is the cutest when he sings the last word to the song- I sing "old ball", and then in a squeaky high singing voice he sings "gaaammmmeee".
