Currently: Jona at 18 Months Edition

Hi, Shea Lennon readers, Jona here. My mom is always doing these "Currently" posts, and I told her that it was about time for me to write one. You know, since my life is pretty dang exciting. So anyway, I'm practically grown up and college-bound now that I'm 18 months old. Here's what I'm currently doing.



Reading: The Little Blue Truck. That book is my jam. Sometimes my mom tries to read me other books, like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom or Mr. Brown Can Moo. Occasionally I'll indulge her, but if I don't get to read about that blue truck at least 5 times a day, the world may as well be ending. Beep beep!

Eating: predictable foods in predictable shapes. My mom is driving me crazy with these dinner games she's been playing. The other day she tried to give me what she said was a quesadilla, but it was rolled up and all funny-looking. I heard her and daddy say they were taquitos. Well you know what's NOT the same as a quesadilla? A taquito. You're fooling no one, mom.

Singing: all the songs. Singing is the best; I try to sing as much as possible. My favorite songs to sing are Baa Baa Black Sheep, Skin-a-marinky-dinky-dink, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and the A B Cs. I also like to turn on all my toys that play songs and sing along. It's even better when I turn on multiple singing toys at once, they all make beautiful music together!

Wearing: button-ups, jeans, and sneakers like a boss. Style bloggers, you better watch out because I've got style for days.

Perfecting: the art of the grab-and-run. My parents think they're putting things out of my reach when they put them on top of tables and counter-tops, but newsflash, I'm a growing boy. My favorite things to grab are remote controls, glasses, phones, and anything in a pile (of course I grab the bottom-most thing). Sometimes I like to grab books of the shelf, plunk myself down on the floor, and just read. Even when the light is off. You gotta do what you gotta do.


Okay, gotta run. My mom just turned on Caillou! Peace out, dudes.

  3. TOO cute. Ollie would like to say that he also loves grabbing things off countertops and tables and that his favorite song is Baa Baa Blacksheep too. Ollie thinks he and Jona would be pretty good buddies! (side note, I love seeing these posts because then I know what I'm in for in a few months, I can't believe he's 18 months old!)

  4. I can't either, so crazy how time flies!! And yes, I think they would be great friends too.
    What is it about Baa Baa Blacksheep? I just talked to another mom whose daughter LOVES that song too. I mean, I know it's a kids song for a reason, but it's just a funny one to love so much.

  5. He is so stinkin' cute and he does dress like a boss. Tried to pull the ole' taquito switcheroo fast one, eh? I don't think I've ever seen the Blue Truck book, but I know that my son's school has the Chica Chica Boom Boom book. One day, my son found his old Bam Bam costume in a closet, took off all of his clothes, put it on and ran around the house with the felt club saying, "Chica Chica Boom Boom." Toddlers are so much work, but are also so much fun. Jone sure is a cutie.

  6. Thanks Megan! I really have too much fun with toddler clothes...and I thought I would only be in danger if I had a girl... Yeah, the food switcheroo hasn't worked so far, he's very skeptical of any food-related changes.
    And that is too cute about your little guy changing into his costume and saying Chica Chica Boom Boom!! They are so much fun, you're right.

  7. I love love love this. Mini me blogger in the making! And so many more examples of why Hendrik and Jona really should be best friends. Little Blue Truck is an absolute favorite here. As are remotes and totally off-limits iPhones.


    (Is it killing you how grown up he looks in that button down and sweater?! It's insanely cute but gosh he looks old! That kind of thing keeps happening around here too.)

  9. I remember you mentioning that Hendrik loved that book too a while ago, and I remember thinking about how Jona hadn't really shown too much of a preference yet for books. But now it's the opposite--he's all about that book! And a couple others too, like Brown Bear, Brown Bear.


    And yes, he does look so grown up. I love the "little man" look, but it SO kills me. Why must they grow so fast!?
