Knock Down Candles!

I had a rough weekend! Thursday was my birthday. Mom came home with Elmo balloons and cake. I didn't care much though. Something was just not right with me. I tried to cling to Mom to see if she could figure out what was wrong. We got the cake out. Mom and Dad sang to me and after a few minutes of trying to knock down my candle I figured out they wanted me to blow on it. I ended up tossing my cookies so we didn't do any gifts :(  I kept telling Mom and Dad "all done" hoping it would make the rotten feeling in my tummy go away.

I spent the weekend with a fever, only drinking milk and juice, sleeping, crying, and clinging to Mom. It was awful. I just wanted to feel better. I even had to miss Megan's birthday party. Mom and Dad even let me sleep in their bed on Saturday. Just like old times, I slept on Mom's rib cage. Finally on Sunday my fever broke.

When Mom and Dad ask me how old I am, I say "one" and hold up one finger. Then they say "noooo y…

Soccer and Even More Pumpkins

Hello! On Saturday we went to Cousin Trevor's soccer game. I had too much energy in me to watch much of it, but I did enjoy kicking a spare ball around. Trevor wore really cool yellow shoes.  After we went to Cracker Barrel for dinner. I was really mad because there was a guitar on the wall that no one would let me play. Why would you put a perfectly good guitar on the wall and not play with it?

We also spent some time in the gift shop. I tried to buy a pop gun, but I was intercepted at the checkout :( Aunt Sue did buy me a really cool mummy toy that is nice and loud. It pops up and screams "Happy Halloween!"

On Sunday Mom and Dad hosted a Jaycees Pumpkin Carving Party. I got to use markers to decorate my pumpkin. The best part was we had cupcakes and cookies. Before the party, Mom let me pick out a cool glow-in-the-dark Halloween tattoo. Elianna, Paige, and Brendan came to the party too.

Last night I woke up at 1:30 a.m. and demanded "brown milk." My nose was …

Knock Down

Hello there! On Friday I went on a playdate with Claire.  We rode our mommy-powered strollers around a lake. I enjoyed pointing out things to her, like yellow leaves. Yellow is one of my new favorite words. I love to point out yellow things, especially yellow buses. I'm getting better and better at putting multiple words together like "yellow car."

On Saturday we went out in some woods to take some pictures for my upcoming birthday. I'll share those with you after I officially turn two. 

My favorite restaurant is Baba Ganoush. It's the only place I'll eat green beans. We went there on Saturday and I danced on my chair in between bites. Mom and Dad thought it was pretty funny.

 My favorite food is bread. I enjoy it straight out of the freezer. No need to waste the time toasting it!

Mom has LOTS of Halloween decorations around the house. She even put out some for me. I do pretty good not touching her stuff. Tonight Mom took me on a stroller ride in the dark. …

Pumpkin Tourism

Hello there! Sorry I missed my post last Monday. We were just getting back from a weekend in Michigan and I was just too tired. We enjoyed catching up with our family up there, especially Uncle Baba, the boat driver. On Friday, I stayed with Grandma and Grandpa so Mom and Dad could go to Detroit to eat coney dogs and go to some Halloween art show.

Since my last post, I've been to FOUR pumpkin farms. The first one we went to was Johnson's in Saginaw, MI. It is our family favorite (hands down). They had and Elmo and a Thomas Train, which are two of my favorites. It was cold the day we were there, but we were able to warm ourselves inside with cider and donuts.

Next we toured Warmbier Farms in Auburn, MI. No donuts, but they had pumpkin bowling, a bounce house, and a huge box filled with field corn to play in. We rode a horse pulled wagon through their pumpkin field. They were so much bigger than the horses in my board books.

The first pumpkin farm we went to in NC was Ganyard Hi…
