I’ve been dancing up a storm lately. At home. At daycare. At home. I really loved the Easter card Grandma and Grandpa R. sent me.

At the playground last weekend I rode the teeter-totter for the first time. Wheee!

I’ve been fighting crime in my spare time.

I have taken to eating on the couch.

But we still have a good time.

There he is!

Peeking out

Halloween was interesting. I dressed up as a rock star (including a green mohawk).

Ay oh let's go

We went trick-or-treating at daycare on Friday. Then today we had a few kids come by for candy. I’m not really that into it yet. Maybe next year I’ll be more excited.

Week two in St. Louis was even busier than week one. I tried to be on my bestest behavior because I could tell Mom & Dad were both way stressed. I entertained myself for hours in our hotel room, racing back and forth along the floor.

I was all over the place

I usually slept pretty well (okay, except for a couple times). Since we were all the same room, Mom & Dad kept extra quiet and turned all the lights off so I could sleep better.

Dad & I did lots of walking (and a little bit of cycling) out in the hot sun. Dad got new sunburns everyday, while I worked on my sweet leg tan. We hit the zoo a few more times, as I enjoy spending time with other apes.

Chow time!

Finally, last but not least, we moved into our new house!!! Sort of. Well, we’re here, except all we have is what fit in our car. The place is pretty bare at the moment, but that’s kind of good as I have more room to crawl.

My new home

I love this place!

It’s been one heck of a week. We moved (temporarily) into a hotel room in St. Louis and Mom has been working every day at her new job. During the days Dad tries to keep me entertained with various activities, sometimes even pushing me in the stroller while talking on the phone or answering emails from people at work.

Walking in Forest Park with Daddy

So far we’ve made too many loops to count around Forest Park in the bike trailer. We’ve walked and biked all over the Washington University campus, our future neighborhood, my future daycare, the loop, and so on.

Daddy & I have been to the zoo twice and we still haven’t even seen half of it.

We also went to the Magic House children’s museum. It was super-cool, though most of it was a bit too advanced for me right now. I’ll probably get more out of it in the coming months.

On top of everything else, I’ve been trying exciting new foods, like Clif Bars and Veggie Sticks.

My new favorite activity is crawling back and forth on the floor of the hotel room.

I can’t wait for more of the same in the coming week. I’m having such a blast!
