A Two Cake Weekend

The pictures below are out-of-order, but I am too tired to fix them.

Last week Trent progressed from climbing the stairs at Marbles to doing the ones at home. He went from not trying to climb the stairs to being really good at it in a flash. He took a similar approach to crawling. It's like he holds back until he can be really good at something.

Trent's hair is getting shaggy. Mommy keeps talking about a first hair cut for him.

Uncle Bob came to visit for the weekend. He is a fun guy. We took him to get burgers. On Sunday we met up with Aunt Sue for lunch. I spent most of the time in the toy corner and Trent enjoyed himself dropping his straw cup and food on the floor. On Sunday night Daddy and Uncle Bob went to the Barenaked Ladies concert.

Mommy and I went to a Gender Reveal party to see what kind of babies are in Claire's Mommy's tummy. A Gender Reveal party means you get color coded cake baked by Miss Kelly. Can you say AWESOME?! It was so much fun it was streamed live on the internet. We are happy to know the E family will be adding TWO DUDES to their kid collection.

Yesterday I fell asleep at 6:30 on the way to the grocery store. I slept through the whole trip. Mommy put me in my bed when we got home. I woke up at 10:00 yelling for water but I went back to bed after. I got up to say hi to Daddy and Uncle Bob when they got home. In the middle of the night I went and crawled in Mommy and Daddy's bed and found out Mallory was missing.

Mallory and Alex escaped via a loose gate during their night-night potty break. Uncle Bob watched the house while Mommy and Daddy went through the 'hood on foot, bike, and car. They got Alex back. At 1:30 a.m. they still hadn't found Mallory. It was raining so they decided to come home and go to bed. That's when I decided it was a good night to go snuggle with them. I kept talking while they kept trying to sleep. At about 2:00 a.m. I woke Mommy up because I heard barking. Mommy jumped up and ran outside. She heard Mallory too and called for her, but she didn't come. Then Daddy went looking again. She didn't come back. I asked Mommy if she was worried about Mallory getting hit by a car. She was surprised to hear such a thing out of a 3 year old.

She replied that Mallory would be ok because she can look both ways. I told her that only service dogs know to look both ways. Mommy was very impressed that I knew what a service dog is. I watched a video on service dogs over and over again.

At 3 a.m. we heard barking on the front porch. Mallory was finally home

Today she was very tired and moved a lot slower. Mommy thinks she is sore from all  that running.

Two BLUE cakes!

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!
