Week 4 : Next mile-marker 2 days ahead

Here is my last post as an 'n-week old'.  Soon many of you will either be rounding me down to a '1-month old' or rounding me up to a '2-month old'.  For those that like to stay precise, there's nothing wrong with keeping me in weeks.  Heck, I think Grandma Stafford would still say my Dad is celebrating 1700 weeks this week.

Aunt Jenny was my special guest this week.  She helped Mom take care of me and my dogs this week, she helped clean, run errands and hold me while I screamed at the top of my lungs.  I think she's pretty great, and considering how many smooches I got - I think I got her playing into my hands pretty well.

I had another new highlight this week, my first play date !  This dude, Colin-G is so cool, he was actually born on my due-date.  We decided to impress our moms by performing synchronized snoozing.  Once we fool them into thinking we're nice, mild-mannered kids - they'll be more apt to trust us not to get into mischief as we get older.  It's just a matter of time now...  Boy are chicks gonna dig-us...

Another first for me this week was my first outing to a coffee shop to meet Laura A.  She and Mom had a great chat while I screamed since there wasn't anything for me there.   Laura made me a really awesome bib that will be reserved for drool.

I also got held by a future mommy that's got mad baby-holding skillz considering she's still a few months away from the 'real' fun.  It was really fun trying to scream loud enough that two of my future buddies could hear me.

That's all folks !

  1. Not sure if Alden and Colin need Breathe-Rights or synchronized swimming nose plugs to complete the look... Still looking forward to counting the screaming toes...!

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
