Week 5 : Turkey, Chicken and Dogs

Aldens back, back again - tell your friends !

Alden awake & alert at 1-month.

With a full month now behind me, I can tell you about the fun I've been having recently.  We had a really nice Thanksgiving around home with just Mom, Dad and my dogs.  Not too eventful, but not terribly boring either.

I got to go to a restaurant for the very first time on Black Friday.  Dad took me to his favorite fast-food joint, Chick-Fil-A (the same one that asked if he attended Apex High School just a month ago).

Up-size my milk please...

Next up for me was my one month doctor's appointment.  95% percentile for weight y'all ! I'm now 11 lbs 4oz.   Later on, we were out walking with Mom pushing my stroller and Dad and my dogs following right behind.  Our neighbor asked if they were my security detail which was pretty funny with two big black dogs that can woof & bark pretty loudly hanging around me like a party crasher at a White House state dinner.

Finally - last but not least, I got to meet my Grandma and Grandpa Stafford ! - They know the drill somewhat since I have 3 older cousins, but they seemed pretty happy to meet me.  I got to eat while Dad showed them where I will watch movies someday and then Grandma got to hold me.  I put on a show and postponed screaming until they were out of the driveway.

It's time for tummy time - talk to you soon !

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!
