I’ve been turning lights off like crazy at home, but it wasn’t until I found some switches at my own height that I could figure out how to turn them back on as well.

Christmas with Mommy’s family was a great time. I walked around Grandma & Grandpa’s great big house for hours. All the playing wore me out a little bit.

I had great fun opening all the wonderful gifts.

I already can’t wait until Christmas next year!

Everyone in Daddy’s family loved my antics, particularly me walking all over the place.

Walk this way

Of course, I tore into some presents.

Tearing open

Oh boy!

Climbing

I really enjoyed seeing Nana, Grampy, Great aunt Marcia, and of course Grandma and Grandpa.

Holidays are just so much fun!

Well, I was in rare form tonight. First we did peek-a-boo.

Then after all the walking practice yesterday I decided to go it alone back and forth all the way across the room several times.

Sure, I hit the ground a few times, but I didn’t let it phase me. I’m a walking machine.

I’m not sure I completely understand this Christmas thing. I received a great big box in the mail last week, but Mom & Dad didn’t open it. That didn’t stop me from playing with it though.

Then today I overheard Daddy ask Grandma Barb when to open the box, and she said she didn’t care. So this afternoon when I was pushing the box around again, I guess Dad & Mom felt sorry for me because they opened the box. Inside was the greatest thing ever. I no longer have to push the box around because now I can push what was inside the box around. This expression sums it up pretty well.

A little excited

I pushed the cart back and forth across the living room for 30 minutes non-stop. Then after dinner I played some more.

Thanks, Grandma & Grandpa!

Happy boy

I haven’t been blogging much lately, and for that I apologize. I’ve been too busy with life.

I saw Santa on a bitterly cold day.

The beard was more convincing than last year.

Wait, this isn't Mommy

I rode in a race car shopping cart.

I tried to run away at bath time.

I played and played and played while Daddy kept flashing bright lights in my direction.

I started brushing my own teeth.

At every opportunity I go digging through Mommy’s drawers to get her Breathe-Right strips and chapstick.

I’ve started climbing up onto the couch to play with Mommy & Daddy.
