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...

Alden & Colin perfect their stylish moves

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...!

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season. 


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!


Halloween 2017

This week Alden turned seven. We went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa for an Outback dinner. This was the birthday of Nerf.

We had a great, active Halloween weekend.
