Happy birthday Jonah!

Jonah turned 2 while we were in Hawaii last week (this picture was taken at the Polynesian Cultural Center on his birthday).  Tom and I both commented that it was weird that he was turning 2 because he has seemed that old for a long time.  Here are a few things about this crazy boy.

  • He loves to TALK.  He is constantly saying new and crazy things.  At his 2 year appointment the doctor asked of Jonah says at least 20 words, but I think he probably says more like 200.  
  • He knows most of his uppercase letters and several of the letter sounds.  
  • He loves Super Why, but he pronounces it "Suka Why."
  • He is constantly trying to charm women when we go places.  I will look down at him and he will be smiling at someone across the store.
  • He loves cars, trains, etc.
  • He has started to fight a little with Harper, but they still get along most of the time.
  • He falls over all of the time.  This little man would not pass a sobriety test.
  • He likes to pretend that he is an animal.  He will say, "I am a frog, ribbet, ribbet," and then start hopping around.
  • He loves bread, particularly rolls.  We were totally saved in Hawaii by a bag of rolls that we bought at Costco.  Jonah ate most of them.
  • He is extremely stubborn.  If you tell him "no" he goes on ahead with whatever he wants to do.
  • He is a Daddy's boy.  He always wants to "hold Daddy's hand" and his favorite shirt says "I love Dad."  
  • He loves to say ask where something is and then point to it and say, "Kickaboo!"
  • He loves to wear shoes and is partial to his Crocs.
  • He likes to read himself stories.
  • He loves to buckle and unbuckle things and refers to buckles as "kuckles."
  • He is very sweet and will frequently come up to me, give me a hug, and say "love you."
  • He likes to grab whatever Harper is holding and then run away with it.
  • He calls all desserts chocolate cake.
  • He has recently started to sing to himself.  It is so cute.
We love this guy so much, I am so grateful to have him in our family.

Sounds like another young man I know. Has he been hanging out with Chase?
