The Cement Truck

We have been busy! On Friday we went to a gym place to get out of the house. I enjoyed crawling backwards and rolling around. Mom got some video of me. I hope she uploads some soon so I can show you just how one who doesn't crawl forward can still get around.

Alden enjoyed jumping in the balls and climbing the ladder.

Yesterday Alden and Dad attended a food-free Easter egg hunt for kids with food allergies.

Today we had some friends from Mom's Baby Steps group over. Both of the other moms have a 3 year-old and an infant too. Funny how their timing worked out.

Alden has been resisting potty training, but Mom and Dad upped their game on Saturday. As of Saturday morning, they are putting Alden in big boy undies during the day and pull-ups at night. The success rate has been about 50/50. The washing machine is really busy in our house. Mom said if she can handle washing cloth diapers she can handle wet clothes. Mom and Dad were holding out on food rewards but they broke down yesterday and started paying Alden in chocolate chips. Today they even bribed him with a cement truck.  I think Alden is plotting how he can earn a whole fleet of trucks!

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!
