Oh Blue Christmas Tree

The house is noisy. I like to be loud with my garbage trucks. Mallory is mad that she is stuck in her kennel with her boo-boo leg so she whines and barks a lot.

I had such a good time last week building a house at Marbles that we did it again. We took Grandma and Grandpa.  Grandpa and I built another house. I took it home, but I want to add more to it later. It has a chimney so Santa can come to it.

Mom stayed home so she could clean. Boring! She put away all of Trent's 6 month size clothes since he has outgrown them.

On Saturday we went to 3 parties. First in the morning we went to a kid birthday party. I had my first roasted marshmallow. I did not like it so I gave it to Mom. Then we went to our neighbor's and I enjoyed playing with Amar's toys. I also tried naan bread for the first time. In the evening we went to Mr. Chris' MBA graduation party. We got to decorate cookies and make a dreidel out of marshmallows. 

Trent and I have our own Christmas tree. It is blue w…

Little Buds

So much news to share! Last week I had my 6 month well visit. I am now over 20 pounds and 28" tall. I can sit up on my own for some seconds if someone gets me in position first. Little teeth buds have also appeared in the bottom of my mouth.

I'm an excellent splasher in the tub now!

Saturday was a weird day. Mom and Dad took off early in the morning to work at something called a parade. We had Miss Charlotte, Miss Shannon, Paige, Brendan, Grandpa, and Grandma all over at various times of the day. That evening some Jaycees people came over to eat pizza and keep me up past my bedtime. I almost fell asleep in my high chair. 

Dad is done (for the most part) putting up his Christmas lights.

On Sunday we went to Marbles. I played in the 18 month and younger section for the first time. Alden and Mom really enjoyed making a wood pretend house and then painting it. He also made a wooden screw holder.  Alden loves tools. Alden wants to build a real house.

Sometimes Mom takes me for …

Late Night Invaders

Hi all. Mom and Dad STILL have me in my bassinet in their room. I'm totally busting out of that thing. They need to upgrade me to my crib! Mom isn't in a hurry because I'm her last baby.

Last night Alden busted into Mom and Dad's bed in the middle of the night. It sounds cuddly to have a sweet preschooler crawl into bed with you right? Wrong! Prepared to be kicked all night. Alden cannot stay still nor orientated correctly. When Mom woke up this morning Alden was upside down with his head under the blanket and his feet on the pillow. Mallory loves to sleep up there too. I cannot wait until I can join in.

Alden has a new nickname, "Oatmeal Dictator." No good mornings from that kid --- he busts in the morning saying "Make me some oatmeal." No "good morning" or nothing! Mom told him she needed 5 more minutes in bed. Alden told her she could make his oatmeal and then go back for 5 more minutes.

Mom is not so keen on my new wake-up time of 6:3…
