Wiped It On My Tummy

What a week!

Alden went to Duke twice for allergy testing. He did great, especially considering he had to be stuck in an exam room for over two hours. The nurses and staff there are so nice. They had to wait 30 minutes for the first appointment and the receptionist apologized twice and gave them a free parking pass.

I like when we drop Alden off for school. I like crawling around and getting into stuff. I'm really good at that now. I don't want to cuddle much. I need to be on the move getting into things. I pull up to my knees. I love cords! My favorite thing is splashing in the dog water bowl. I also think toilet plungers are interesting. Don't leave me alone! I also like to play with shoes. During library story time I had fun checking out shoes.

I also like standing at things.

Alden likes playing with his lawn mower. On Saturday we went for a walk down the street. Alden mowed the lawns along the way, I sat in the double stroller by myself, and Mommy pushed us while walking Mallory. We were an awesome parade.

On Sunday we went to Pullen Park with Emily and Molly. I rode on a train and carousel for the first time. I did great, no tears.

We have construction guys working in the attic. It was loud so I took some of my naps inside a pack-n-play stuffed into Mommy and Daddy's closet. I'm a great sleeper. Even Miss Joni said so. I had to stay over there today while Mommy and Alden were at Duke. As long as I have my blankie and white noise (crickets) I'm good to go. I may whine for a bit but then I'm off to dreamland. I don't like to be rocked. Alden loved being rocked. He's 3 and still gets rocked most nights.

Last week Daddy was traveling and Alden was not a good sleeper for Mommy. He wanted to stay up as long as she was up. He finally wore her down and she let him sleep in her bed. It is amazing that he can stay up very late without a nap.

Last night Mommy had a meeting and had to go get groceries. I slept through all of this but I heard Mommy tell Daddy about it this morning. When Mommy came home at 9:30 p.m. Alden was downstairs running around. Daddy was passed out in bed. Alden had gotten out the downstairs toys after they had been put out for the night.

Alden insisted on helping Mommy put away the groceries. Mommy put Alden back to bed. Mommy then went to do some computer work. Alden came to tell her he pooped in his pull-ups. But it was ok because he had "cleaned it up himself." Mommy went in his room and it was not ok. Mommy got to wiping and Alden told her he got some on his hands but it was ok because he wiped it on his tummy. Alden ended up in the shower.

In fairness number 2 training is going better.

Sweet reward for being so good at Duke.

Too much fun at preschool drop off.

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!
