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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Daddy & I had some fun after my bath tonight.
Still having fun in the tub.
Grandpa Bruce stopped by for a brief visit and I just couldn’t wait to show him how to go up stairs.
I’m not sure he would have figured it out on his own without my help.
