Down On The Farm

Last week my class went on a field trip to a farm. Trent and I both had lots of fun. We napped really hard when we got home (and I pretty much never nap anymore!).

Trent is walking really well now. He also started getting into the cupboards and taking everything out. Shoot, I had that mastered a long time ago!

Mommy went to a Halloween Art Show in Michigan on Saturday. That's one of her favorite things.

We've all had colds around the house, except for Daddy.

First Steps

What a week! Last Thursday I got a lot better at walking. While I have been experimenting for awhile, Mommy and Daddy have checked off my "first steps" box. I still have lots of practicing to do. 

On Saturday we went to the children's museum.  On the way there we saw some fire fighters putting out a brush fire near our neighborhood. Alden loves firefighters. We pulled over to watch. While Daddy and I played, Mommy and Alden went to see a 3D movie about fish. Mommy really enjoys taking Alden to 3D movies because he gets very excited.

For the first time at the museum, I got wild and excited about pushing around the toy lawnmower. It is cool!  Walking toys make sense to me now.

After that we went to a street art festival.

Alden still likes to go sneak into Mommy and Daddy's bed in the middle of the night. In the morning he wants to snuggle.

On a sad note, I'm in some teething pain.

Progress Notes

I'm not officially walking yet, but I'm getting closer. I'm the kind of guy who likes to practice and warm up before the big event. Last week Mommy and Daddy saw me walk a few steps between lawn chairs at the pool. Holding a hand, I can walk really fast.

Alden says he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up. He already knows how to spray things down.

Alden learned how to delete photos off an iPhone (he loves taking iPhone pictures). He asked Mommy who empties the garbage can when you delete things off a phone.

Mommy received Alden's first progress notes from school:

During Alden's first few weeks at school, we are glad to notice that he seems comfortable around his new friends and teachers. He also seems to enjoy exploring many learning centers while at school. We really enjoy having Alden in our class.
Alden is also enjoying learning about extreme weather like tornadoes and hurricanes.

Labor Day is Not Lazy Day

We are very upset because we realized too late that we forgot to do a photo shoot with Grandma before she left. We won't do that again.

I thought that Labor Day weekend was for relaxing, but Mommy and Daddy used it to try to get lots done around the house. I cannot believe how much time we spend at Home Depot and Lowe's. Mommy and Daddy moved into their new office room. I helped them carry stuff and clean. Daddy showed me to to cut wires. I like trying out new tools.

When we weren't working around the house we went to the community pool. I've gone from walking around the pool to going into the pool. I enjoy it now. I owe it all to my swim classes.

Trent is getting really close to walking. Today at the pool we saw him go a few steps to get from one lawn chair to another. He still favors crawling.

I love playing with Play Doh. It is my favorite right now.

Mommy got me some Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kid stickers at Target. She loves stuff from the 80s. After we got …
