Currently: Jona at 20 Months

Hi Shea Lennon readers, Jona here again! I had so much fun writing the last Currently post for my mom's blog that I wanted to do it again. And all I have to do to get her to say yes is just open my eyes real wide and stick out my bottom lip...works like a charm. #wrappedaroundmyfinger #nevertooyoungforhashtags


Here's what I'm up to at 20 months. 

Loving: baseball. My daddy and I love to shout "baseball!" to get pumped for Royals games. Something about that game makes me want to stop what I'm doing and watch. I don't know why, but sometimes the game stops and the TV starts showing something completely different (mommy says it's a "commercial") and I get pretty mad. I say "Oh no, baseball!" to try to bring back my game. Eventually that works and it comes back on! I love it. 



Wearing: sunglasses and polos. My mom may be the style blogger of the family, but I happen to rock polo shirts and sunglasses like nobody's business. I'm also feeling nautical prints, stripes, and my navy blue Toms this spring. 



Practicing: my manners. I know that if I'm going to woo the ladies in a few years I have to be on point in the manners game, so I'm getting a head start now. I've realized that my parents are way more likely to give me something (like ice cream!) if I say please first. I've had "thank you" mastered for quite some time now, but when I combine the two...I'm irresistable. I also say "bless you dada" or "bless you mama" when my parents sneeze, and they really eat that up. 

Helping with: the chores. I'm a really good helper, that's what my mommy always tells me. I love to help her cook, sometimes I even get to stir in the pan or add ingredients to the bowl! I also love putting laundry in the basket (and taking it out again). I really like to try to put on clothes and shoes myself, but mommy insists on helping me for some reason...something about pants not going on your head, whatever. 



Showing off: my talking skills. In my 20 months of experience, I've learned that there are certain things I say that my mom and dad really love to hear, and they really love making me say those things for other people too. When I'm in the mood, I'll perform. I can count to 14 and say my ABCs, but I have to be in the mood to say them on-demand. I also get extra hugs from my mommy when I say, "I love you, mama." 

Asking: why. I'm trying to find out #ALLTHETHINGS. It's pretty funny to try to hear mommy try to come up with an answer for everything. I can't wait to ask her things like "Where do babies come from?" 



Well, I've got to go. I see a cell phone on the table and I need to go hand it to my daddy. Helper, remember?

  2. Oh my gosh what a cutie! I love that he is working on his manners too - hey Jona, would you mind explaining to Ollie that please and thank you are a more effective way of getting what you want instead of going "ehhh!" :)

  3. What a little sweetheart!! And those sunglasses on him...adorable! I'm sure my husband is hoping our son loves watching all sports as much as your son seems to enjoy watching baseball. :)

  5. Oh don't get me wrong, Jona still does his fair share of "ehhh!" Just now it's not the ONLY thing he does :)
    Thanks Beth!

  7. Gosh, he is just the cutest. I love that he says "bless you" when you sneeze. Adorable. And the polos and sunglasses are really working for him. He's styling'! Ben also LOVES to help when he sees a cell phone laying around. Lol!

  8. He is growing up so fast and is just a doll. Quite the stylish little fella.

  9. Thank you!! :) He's become such an imitator, so that's where the bless you comes from I'm sure. It's pretty funny!
    And what is it with kids and cell phones/remotes/etc...they always make a beeline for them!

  10. Thanks Megan!! I think so too, although I'm a wee bit biased :)

  11. Jona, you are rocking the spring style. Love it. And you could maybe pass along some hints to Hendrik about "please" (please?) - just leave out any mention of the word "why" as we don't know it yet ;)

  12. Thanks Anne!! The "why" thing is so funny (well, sometimes it's a little exhausting) but I don't even think he knows what it means. 3 of the kids at his daycare are older than him (between 2 and 3) so I think it's something he picked up from them. But he sure does ask it all. the. time.

  18. Thanks Brynn! I had fun putting this list together, it was good for me to focus on the things I have done instead of what I still want to do!
