Days of Jonah

This is one of Mommy's favorite pictures of me looking up at Daddy. . .

For the most part, I'm an extremely obedient boy (considering I'm under 10 months old and have only a minimal grasp of the English language). I read Mommy and Daddy's body language quite well and often steer clear of the things they discourage from touching; however, sometimes when they tell me "no" they do it with smiles on their faces and it confuses me. I think it's a game so I give them a teethy grin, giggle, or stick out my tongue to let them know I'm enjoying it. Such was the case yesterday. Mommy repeatedly said "no" to the fireplace, outlets, and candles. I thought she was playing because she kept laughing at the silly faces I'd make when she scolded me. It wasn't until she put my hands in monkey jail that I realized she was serious!!

These mittens Aunt Rachel gave me have no fingers. I can't do a thing when they're on except sit and pray Mommy will have mercy on me and take them off. :)
Mommy thinks I have a servant's heart (just like Daddy). When she works around the house, I'd rather help than play with my toys. She thinks I'll make an incredible husband one day (but is hesitant to vocalize it because she's not keen on the idea of sharing me with another woman). :)
PS. I now have 5.5 teeth. 4 on top, 1 1/2 on the bottom!
