It's Christmas Time in the City!

Wow. Okay, so I still don't know a whole lot about this Christmas thing, but from what I've seen and been told so far, I think I'm gonna like it. Mommy says this is actually my second Christmas, but I don't remember the last one, so it's all new to me.

First, Mommy put up our Christmas tree. It's covered in lights and beads and all these really neat colored balls and other "ornaments." I, of course, immediately wanted to pull them off and inspect them closer, but Mommy wasn't having any of that. She told me the tree is "just for looking at, don't touch!" I still try to sneak things off the tree when I think she's not looking.

Then, Mommy and Daddy put up more lights all over the inside and the outside of the house. It looks so pretty. I've seen other houses with pretty lights on them, too. I think this is how people get Santa to notice their house so he is sure to come bring them presents on Christmas Eve.

Oooh, oooh! That brings me to my next point! I actually got to meet Santa last weekend!! And some elves and some reindeer, too! Check out the pics...

I pet a reindeer. He didn't move at all, just stood there and let me pet him and pull on his antlers:

Then, we found a little elf. He wasn't much taller than me and I think we kind of look alike, what with my rosy cheeks and snazzy green jacket:

Then, it was on to the big guy. They had to take 2 pictures, since I put my hand up in my face for the first one. I was losing my patience by the time they took the second pic though:

Mommy and me also made some Christmas cookies yesterday for Daddy's office, but we didn't get any pictures of that. But, Mommy let me play with some of the cookie dough (which I promptly ate) and then let me taste some of the cookies when they were done! Yum!

Mommy says Christmas is still 10 days away, but I can't wait to see what Santa brings me!!

Happy Holidays!

Mommy's Little CEO

The day before Thanksgiving, Mommy had to take me to her office for part of the morning. I love going to the office with Mommy because there is so much to get in to. Mommy says she can't get anything done while I'm there, but she sure does a lot making sure I don't touch anything or play with all the cool stuff!

Mommy had to go into a meeting while I was there and I got to come, too! While Mommy and her co-worker were talking with their boss, I wandered around and looked for something to play with. I also made a poo while they were talking. Mommy noticed, I could tell because of the way she was looking at me when I poo'd. Then, her boss must have smelled it because he asked her if I had pooped. Mommy turned bright red and tried not to laugh.

After the meeting was over, Mommy changed my diaper right there in her office. She said that was the best place to do it, since the bathroom doesn't have a diaper changing station. Then she let me help her with some of her work.

Here are a couple of pics from my hard day at the office:

Here's some of my "paperwork" (Mommy says she thinks it looks a bit like a whale):

This "work" thing doesn't seem as hard as Mommy and Daddy make it out to be...

Feeding Time

If you know me, you know I like to eat. Well, I like to "snack." Mommy says I would snack all day if she let me. When it comes to actual meal times, I really prefer to just throw food on the floor and make a big mess. It's truly an art form and I am the best at it.

One time, I was "eating" dinner and had some mashed potatoes to play with. I smeared them around on my high chair tray and with one big swipe, everything landed on the floor. Mommy came over (yelling something about not throwing food on the floor) and started picking it all up. She always does that when I throw things on the floor. It's really fun.

So, when she bent down next to me in my high chair, I decided she would look a lot better with some mashed potatoes in her hair. I still had a big clump of them in my hand and her head was right there so I thought she wouldn't mind. I smooshed that big old clump of potatoes right into her hair. At first, I thought she would get mad because I think I scared her, but then she started laughing and went to show Daddy the great job I did smashing those mashed potatoes in her hair. Daddy thought she looked great and laughed, too.

I usually get pretty messy during these art sessions and I have to go straight into the bath after dinner. At other times, Mommy just cleans me up the best she can (I don't make it easy since I hate it when she wipes my face and hands) and sometimes has to change my clothes.

I really like to eat though... Here are some of my favorite foods:

Cheeseburgers... mmmmm...

And, I LOVE barbecue. We went to a Spears Family Reunion a little while ago and Daddy let me chew on one of his ribs. It was sooooo good, I didn't want to let it go!

A couple of weekends ago, Mommy and Daddy took me to a place they really like called Firehouse Subs. I got this cool fireman hat and they gave me another one of my favorite things: Cheetos!!

And finally, dessert. This is what happens when Mommy lets me feed myself chocolate pudding...

I know, I made a huge mess that time. But, NONE of it ended up on the floor! I'll have to do better next time.

Punkin Pants

All week last week, Mommy kept talking about wanting to take me to the Punkin Pants.  She would ask Daddy a billion times if we were going to the Punkin Pants this weekend and tell me how much fun we would have at the Punkin Pants.  I was starting to wonder if Mommy had gone a little crazy over this whole Punkin Pants thing.

Well, we finally did go to the Punkin Pants this weekend, two of them actually, and it was pretty fun!

The first one we went to was just a small one by Nana's house.  It was just me and Mommy and Nana.  There were so many punkins to look at!

Okay, that last one is not actually a punkin.  Nana called it a "gooord" or something like that, but I thought it was pretty neat looking.

And I, of course, had to see what one tasted like...

It wasn't very good.  I don't recommend it.

After all that punkin inspection, Mommy said she wanted to take a cute picture of me on the hay bales with all the punkins, but this is what I thought of that:

So, Nana and I went to play on the soccer fields while Mommy chased us with that camera thing like she always does.

The next day, we went to a HUGE Punkin Pants Festival!  There were so many more punkins and people and things to do!  And, of course, more punkins and goooords to taste!  (They didn't taste very good here either, but I had to try.)

I even got to ride in a little wagon while Daddy pulled it.  That was so fun, I hope Mommy and Daddy get me my own wagon soon!

I started trying some cool, daredevil moves while riding in the wagon and Mommy got nervous... she found one with rails on it so I couldn't do much more than just sit and ride.

The punkin pantses was real fun this weekend, but I think I'm about punkin'd out!

Boo x 2

I got a pretty bad boo-boo the other day when I was leaving daycare. I wanted to go down the 2 steps outside the door all by myself even though Mommy was trying to help me. But, I lost my balance a little bit and fell forward right on my face! Owie!

Check out my battle wounds:
It hurt a lot when it happened and it really scared me! I cried a lot and I think Mommy was a little scared, too. She didn't like seeing me tumble down those steps! Don't worry though, I may not look pretty, but I'm doing fine now and still up to my usual antics!

(tough) Love,

Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

It was a gorgeous day last Saturday. Mommy and Daddy wanted to get out of the house for a little bit that afternoon, so we went to the park down the street from our new house.

It was huge! And there were so many kids there. But it was still fun.

I rode the little white horsey...

...and on the swings...

...and ran around and climbed on anything I could!

I enjoyed my trip to the park with Mommy and Daddy...

...I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures.

I know, I know... it's been a while since I've posted. But, we're finally done with the move and things are settling down a bit now. So, since you are all dying to know what I've been up to, here's the latest.

As I said in my last post, I went to stay with my Nanny and PawPaw last weekend while Mommy and Daddy were moving all our stuff into the new house (which I LOVE, by the way!). Nanny and PawPaw took me to my very first football game! My cousin, Destiny, is a cheerleader (and a darn cute one at that!) and she was cheering at a game last Saturday.

It was really fun. It was a good thing Mommy packed a green shirt for me, too, since everybody was wearing green. I got my face painted and got to climb all over the stands (which I'm sure made Nanny really nervous). PawPaw even took some pictures:

Don't I make a good cheerleader?

The best part was when Nanny shared her SnoCone with me! Man, that was good. And it was so cold, which was nice since it was so hot out that day.

Uh oh, is that an unattended SnoCone I see?

Later, when we got back to Nanny & PawPaw's house, I tried this football thing out for myself. It doesn't seem so hard.

Mommy says I could be the next Tony Romo, who ever that is...

Hey, Nanny! Go long!

Well, I better go hit the showers and head to the crib.

Thanks for reading.
