Mommy's Little Firecracker

As I mentioned last time, Grandma and Grandpa Jezewski and Aunt Jenny came to visit me last week.  I loved how I was able to charm them into being human bassinets. Nothing like a good cuddle nap!

While I was sleeping in my car seat, we went to a tent to buy fireworks. Alden has a complicated relationship with fireworks. He is scared and fascinated with them all at the same time. Dad got asked for "quiet fireworks" because that is what Alden had requested (this was while Mom went to Old Navy to look for "step-down clothes" --- whatever that is).  Dad got some simple fireworks and colored smoke bombs. Alden liked the smoke bombs but the other fireworks were a bit scary cause they were loud.

On the 4th, it was really hot. We went to a parade in the park by our house. Miss Joni organized it. Kids from our neighborhood decorated their wagons, bikes, and strollers to be in it. Alden rode in his wagon while I hitched a ride on Mom. When it came time to pose for a picture, Alden hopped out and wiped off his wagon.  He's a man that knows how to make sure his vehicle is in best viewing condition!

Last Monday I went to a playdate with four other babies born in May and June. Let's face it, at this age a playdate is just a chance for the mommies to yack and compare notes over coffee while we sleep and eat.

Alden is getting more used to having me around. Before he'd get annoyed while Mom was nursing me. However since he gets to watch Mickey Mouse Club on the iPad while I eat he now likes nursing time. He even asks Mom when it is time to feed Trent.

I've learned that when Alden says "Do you see what I'm doing?" he usually is doing something that Mom and Dad aren't going to be too pleased about.

I don't know what goes on during Alden's bath but I heard some horrible crying in the bathroom last night "No hair, no hair!!". I don't like baths either!

Comfy on Aunt Jenny.

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!
