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 a walk with the dogs if I'm having a hard time figuring out how to nap. Poor Mallory has a boo-boo knee and she is going to the doctor this week. She will likely need to have something called surgery. Dad is using scary words like "confinement" when he talks about her. Hang in there, Mal!

A new view of the world.

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!
