My Last First Holiday

Hey out there! Happy Labor Day! Labor Day is special because it is the last of my first holidays. I really enjoyed that Mom and Dad had an extra day to hang out with me.

I'm still doing a bit of standing and a few steps here and there. Mom and Dad haven't been able to catch me on video yet. I'm just not ready to share my work-in-progress with the world yet.

Mom let me play in her car. I knew exactly what to since I've been practicing with my toy car. She got a chuckle when she started the car the next day - the brights and wipers were on. If I just had some pedal extenders I'd be able to take the family for a ride. We played in Dad's car while he was cleaning the garage yesterday. For some reason Mom freaked out when I put some bite marks on Dad's door. Hello! I explore the world with my mouth!

Mom tried the Cheerio trick today. I'm still not very interested in feeding myself. Mallory loved it though. Most of the Cheerios on my tray went in her belly!

Yesterday something horrible happened. Mom stuck me in the exersaucer and trimmed my hair with Dad's shaver. She thought I was looking shaggy. I hated it; I sure wasn't going to keep still! Mom needs to leave hair trimming to the pros. At best, the back of my head could be called notchy. Good thing I move so fast. Hopefully no one will notice.

Today I had a cool surprise for Mom and Dad. This time when we were playing "Where's Alden?" I hid all by myself by putting the blanket over my own head! That makes me giggle! I can also make the airplane sign when one flies over.

Oh, Mom started decorating for Halloween. I cannot wait to start getting into her Halloween decorations.

Next step? Ask for the keys.
