Old story from December 13, 2004

monday 12/13/04 - i watched jonah on the 7th night of chanukah. we did some runnin' around, playing with blocks, looking at the fan, reading books and he was gettin' kinda cranky. then boom he busts out with the "bath" sign. and i say "uh, you want a bath?" ('cause i don't normally give him baths. confidentially speaking i'm kind of scared of the water and swimming in general and being in charge of the baby in the tub kinda freaks me out. a little.) and he replies "Bath" sign! so i say "ok, let's give you a bath.

we practice some numbers in the bath and he plays with all the cups and empties them. they have holes in the bottoms. there's a plastic pot for a plant. kelly broke the base off so it's like the giant version of the little ones. eventually, and this has never happened with me, jonah gives the "all-done" sign. and i ask "all done?" because i don't believe it. almost every time i've ever pulled him out of the tub he cries. so he says "all-done" and i pick him up and he thinks it's all pretty nice and funny.

he points at the lotion and makes like he wants it. i dry him off and lie him down. no crying. he tries to reach for the lotion next to the bed i'm changing him on. i say "ok, you want lotion?" normally kelly lotions him all up and he likes it and it makes him laugh hysterically. so i do my best and he laughs a little and likes it. and although i normally also have a fear of lotion (yech!) it's ok with the baby. i go back to putting on his diaper and he rubs his hands together like i did after i squirted the lotion on. he wants more lotion! heh. so i re-lotioned him but i think the problem was i didn't get under his neck and make him super laugh.

i dressed him, with his shirt on backwards. huh, i wondered why it was so hard to get it on. ha. and then kelly called from outside! we waved from the window upstairs and she waved a new blue spatula she got me for chanukah.

A quick update

This post is dedicated to Alison :-)

Kelly and I have been super busy with work lately. Our nephew Dan and his girlfriend, Kristen, came to visit. We're hoping they'll move out to California. Specifically... somewhere close. Now there are a lot of great reasons for them to move out, but a big one for me is that I can play board games with them.

We played this game, Raj, which was a lot of fun. I bought it on eBay for $3. It's a really simple auction game for 2-5 players.

We played another auction game called For Sale which was also a lot of fun.

Awwww. The picture link is broken and I need to go.

Jonah keeps getting cuter day by day. He likes to play "Google Firetruck." I sit in the chair, he brings a pillow, sits on my lap, we put the pillow on top and then the laptop on top of that. Then we go to Google Image Search and search for "firetruck" or whatever thing he wants to see. I highly recommend it for anyone with a 2 year old. Note: When Jonah says "Firetruck" it sounds more like "fih-fye-fr tuh-tr-truck."

Oh yeah, one more thing. He's been telling stories to us about daycare. Now he's only two so he's not a fabulous story teller yet. So they're things like "Finn bite ear." And we ask "Did Finn bite your ear? Who's ear did Finn bite?" And he'll say "Yes" to most questions. I was convinced Finn bit Jonah's ear but the official report is that Finn bit Anthony's ear. We also learned that they take their shoes off when they nap at daycare. And Jonah sleeps on a green bed and has a red blanket!

I've got to go. OKSEEYABYE!

Uh, hi, how's it going?

Sorry it's been so long since I've written anything. The news here is that I started working at Apple in April of 2005. Also. We have chickens. We had 5 hens. But then one turned out to be a rooster. He is no more.

In other news, check out this guy's lego robot that solves rubik's cubes.

Wait. There's more news. Jonah is 2 years old now. He's 95th percentile height and weight. I think he'll be taller than Kelly and I soon. When he's sleeping he likes to snug his head up against the edge of the crib. But a lot of the time this makes him too hot. I refer to this as "head sweaty." This happened earlier tonight. What I do in cases like this is grab his feet and slide his all body away from the edge. It makes me laugh thinking about it.

Kelly is good and I'm good and Jonah is good. Maybe we'll make pancakes tomorrow morning with the eggs from our chickens!
