Splish Splash

Usually I take my baths in the kitchen sink. Mommy and Daddy wash the dishes there, so I figured that's where everything gets washed. I couldn't figure out how Mommy and Daddy fit in the sink to wash themselves. They are too big. Last night, I found out that they clean themselves in the bathroom. Mommy let me take a bath in the big tub with her. I felt like a grown-up! There were all sorts of bubbly suds. I tried to eat them. Daddy put some suds on my head and on my face. He said I had a beard, but that's just silly because only boys have beards. Mommy taught me how to splash around in the water. Daddy gave me some toys to play with. It was a lot of fun. I hope that I can take more baths in the bathtub.

Busy as a bee

I saw lots of people this weekend. Last night Mommy, Daddy and I went shopping, but it wasn't like the usual stores we go to. This one was at a house, in the basement, which is a large grey room that is under the ground. There was a lot of yummy food and drinks, and fun music, and many people, and a few doggies. The doggies are big and furry and they scare me a little, but Mommy or Daddy holds me and I don't feel so scared. Mommy and Daddy bought clothes for running. I don't know why they don't wear onesies or feetie pajamas and ride around in a stroller like I do; it's so much easier than letting your feet touch the ground. Anyway, there were a lot of people I knew, and a lot of people I didn't know, and there were people that I think I should have known, but couldn't remember.

Today we went to a housewarming party at Phil and Christy's house. Phil works with Daddy in a big office building, but he lives down the street from us. I played with some bread; I ate some bread. I played with some leaves; I ate some leaves. I watched Mommy and Daddy play croquet. Then I got tired so we went home.

Pint-size vacation

Mommy, Daddy and I are staying in a hotel. The wood ground inside our house is being fixed so we had to live elsewhere for last night. The hotel is fun. There is a tv and a large bed in the room. Sesame Street is on tv right now. I like Grover. So does Daddy. Grover must be super old because Daddy once told me he used to watch Grover when he was little. There is a swimming pool and hot tub here, but I didn't go swimming because the pool was too cold and the hot tub was too hot. I like things "just right," like Goldilocks. We had breakfast here. I had cereal in the shape of O's. I had some yummy blueberry muffin, a chunk of bread, and a bit of yogurt. I tried to drink Mommy's coffee but I ended up spilling it on the table, chair, and floor. Whoopsies.

My third toof

I have a tooth coming in. I can feel it when I rub my tongue on the top front part of my mouth. It hurts. I cry sometimes. Luckily Mommy or Daddy has this magic goo that they rub in my mouth and everything feels all tingly and then numb so I don't hurt so much. I also have a runny nose. Mommy says that sometimes when teeth come in it can cause a nose to run. That's strange because I don't even know how to walk. How can my nose already know how to run? My legs need to learn from my nose. And where does my nose go? Isn't it always in the middle of my face?

Yesterday Mommy and I played Ball, also known as the roundy thing. She asked me if I could say "ball" and I said "Ba!" She was very happy. I was very happy. She clapped. I clapped.

Daddy and I play a game. He gets on one side of the sofa. I get on the other side. We lie on the floor and look under the sofa at each other. I laugh. Daddy laughs. Repeat.

A wedding, Grandparents' Day, A birthday

On Saturday I went to a wedding in California. Mommy and Dadddy's friend Darin married a very nice lady named Sylvia. Mommy tells me that there is a little baby growing inside Sylvia. How exciting! The wedding was fun. I played with my cousins. I played with my friend Nikka. I played with people I don't remember.

Yesterday was Grandparents' Day so I had breakfast with Ba-chan and Ji-chan. I gave them a card for the occasion. They liked it. After our meal, we went back to their house and we played for a bit before Mommy, Daddy, and I had to go to the airport to get on a plane. I like planes. I can practically fly one by myself.

Yesterday was also Mommy's birthday. Daddy said Mommy was born in the 20th century. That's OLD! Daddy took Mommy on a date yesterday so I played with Mark and Amy at their house while Mommy and Daddy were gone. Amy also has a baby growing inside her. It's a boy. Boys have cooties. Mark and Amy took me to the park and I swung on the swings and watched people play soccer. When I finally started missing Daddy and Mommy, they came back and we all went home as a family.

My playgroup

Yesterday I went to my first playgroup. It was at my Book Baby friend Syris's house, which was a little hard for Mommy to find. She got lost, but I didn't mind because I was taking a nap in the car and it gave me some extra napping time before play time. I was a little shy at first but then I realized that all my baby friends were playing and having fun so I joined in. There were toys and books and food and other friends my size. What more could I ask for? I can't wait to have my friends over at my house to play.

Monday was a holiday, called Labor Day. I took the day off. Mommy and Daddy and I went on a picnic on top of a volcano. I didn't see any lava or smoke though. There was a nice view. I could see Daddy's work downtown, Mt. Hood, and lots of hills and trees. We sat on a blanket. I crawled to the edges of the blanket and there were lots of green, stringy carpet strands and it came apart when I pulled on it. I had some cucumber salad, pasta, and watermelon. Yummy!

This morning when I went to play in my room I noticed that the sofa that used to be in the room with the other sofas is now in my room. I wonder how it got there. I heard that sofas have legs so maybe it walked? I put my hands on the sofa when I stand up and I can walk side to side. Mommy and Daddy like to lie down on the sofa while I play. And what's neat about it is that it opens up to a bed, so I can entertain overnight guests. Of course, my own bed is in Mommy and Daddy's room, but I don't mind sharing my play room with others, just so long as they put the toys back after they are done playing with them.

Yoshimi the massage therapist

This afternoon I helped Mommy relax. I gave her a back massage. She sat down on and I stood behind her. I put my purple plastic egg in one hand and my orange and blue egg in the other hand and rolled them down Mommy's back. I had a little trouble bringing the eggs back up and ended up dropping them, so I had to pick them up and start all over. Mommy said it felt really nice on her back. I had fun rolling the eggs.

Mommy bought me a book today. It's a book with pictures of people talking with their hands. I already know how to say "milk" and "more" by using my hands. It's nice when Mommy and Daddy know what I'm talking about. With this book we can all learn how to communicate together. Sometimes I have no idea what the big people are saying. Other times I think the big people have no idea what I'm saying. It leads to a lot of confusion. I hope this book will help.
