One Less Pair of Underwear

I have two blankies that I really like. Both are crocheted. One is yellow and the other is green. I sleep with them. One usually comes to school with me. I drag them around the house. I pretend they are scarves. I also like to sleep with Puppy, a doggie Beanie Baby I took from a dog (who lived in Daddy's SF apartment). Elmo and Cookie Monster usually sleep with me too. Yes, I'm still in my crib. No, I don't crawl out on my own yet. I wait until someone comes to get me.

Mommy has really been into her fish lately. On Friday we went to Petsmart to get some fish supplies. While we were in line to pay, Alden started yelling "I need to poop!" and "I'm pooping right now!" Mommy left her stuff at the checkout, grabbed him, and grabbed my hand. She pulled us to the restroom. The whole time Alden was yelling and Mommy kept telling him to keep it down.

Mommy doesn't carry spare clothes for us anymore so Alden had to wear one of my diapers home. He whined a…

Kindergarten?!

The big event last week? Mommy registered me for kindergarten. I'm not really sure what life is going to be like when I get to the big K. It will be a big change for all of us.

Trent was sick on Saturday. He threw up all over his bedding. He's fine today though.

Trent has school news also. He moved from the Freshman to Sophomore room at school today. We'll have to get a picture. He's done great with the transition.

On Friday we went to dinner at Claire, Will, and Colin's house. Claire and I sat at a table of our own with a real candle and plastic wine glasses. Nothing but the best for us. I really enjoyed getting into their toys and real piano.

San Fran Fun!

We spent after Christmas to New Year's Day in San Francisco. Daddy works for a company there so we got to go visit the headquarters.

Here is some of the things we did: Westfield Shopping Center, In and Out Burger, ferry ride under the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, toured Daddy's office, had lunch with the Potters, had lunch with Ella, met new friends Hallam and Callie (and their parents), California Academy of Sciences, Exploratorium, Pier 39 Aquarium, Hard Rock Cafe, bus rides, BART ride, cable car ride, trolley ride, and the Children's Creativity Museum.

I missed most of my naps so I got crabby at times, but it was still worth it.

Merry Belated Christmas

We are back! Sorry we've been gone from blogging for awhile. It was a busy couple of weeks. We enjoyed Christmas and almost 2 weeks off from school (and Mommy and Daddy were off too). It has been a struggle getting back to our normal schedule. It was so nice sleeping in and not having to be anywhere in particular.

The day before Christmas Eve we had a party at school. That means we sat around eating junk food.

We spent Christmas Eve at home with Grandma and Grandpa Stafford, Uncle Rob, Aunt Sue, and Cousin Trevor. We had meatloaf for dinner. We ate lots of chocolate covered cherries. Earlier that day we had lunch at Outback. Mommy loves the seasonal cocktails there and we love stealing the sugar rims off her cocktails.

On Christmas Day Trent was sick so just Daddy and I went to Aunt Sue's. The good news is he was better the next day.

Some of my gifts this year: magnet kit, nerf gun, Crayola Marker maker, Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (TNMT) socks, jammies, and top, Don't Bre…
