We traveled all around and I got to visit all my grandparents and great grandparents for Thanksgiving.

At Grandma Barb & Grandpa Bruce’s house I showed everyone how fast I could crawl, and I even took a few steps.

I also got to play with my cousins Caleb & Vivian, and see my great grandparents.

Later, at Grandma Nancy & Grandpa Dick’s house I showed Grandma & Great Aunty how to play the piano on my iPad.

And I got into some mischief there as well.

Climbing in

I can’t wait to visit all my relatives again. We just always have the bestest time together.

I roam around a lot these days. First, I crawl super fast. As you’ve seen I go up and down the stairs like a pro. One of my current favorites is to grab onto a chair and walk around a bit. Here, see for yourself.


Though, to be honest, I’m not that picky. If I can’t find a chair to push, I’ll settle for whatever I can find.

I also got a new toy from my friends Claire & Elliott. It’s a bike.

Finally, I just love going for a magic carpet ride. We can’t take complete credit for this, as Daddy got the idea from a friend, but it’s still my new favorite thing. At first I wasn’t really sure what was going on. Now, whenever I see the magic carpet I run over and lay down on my tummy while Dad or Mom pulls me around.

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.


My daycare, the Washington University Family Learning Center, had its grand opening celebration this week. I took part in a parade with all the other kids. I even waved to the crowd from my vehicle like a beauty pageant winner. It was fun.

To honor the occasion everyone painted their handprints on big canvas posters, even the Chancellor of the university.


Daddy’s handprint went next to the Chancellor’s.

I’ve been having such a good time since I recently figured out how to go up the stairs. At every opportunity I shoot up the steps then play upstairs.

My favorite game is closing and then opening the bedroom doors.

Open and shut

It only took a couple of days before I also figured out how to go back down the stairs. Really the only reason I would want to do this is so I can climb right back up!
