It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

For some reason, it just doesn't start to really feel like Christmas until you've got a Christmas tree in your living room and some snow outside. Luckily, I've got both!

On Friday, Mommy & Daddy didn't have to go to work because of the big snowstorm, so we got to go outside and play in the snow lots. I finally got a chance to wear my new snowsuit, and I even made a snow angel!

Now that I'm getting bigger, I can do a lot of things that I couldn't do before. For one, I can bake my own potatoes .

I can wear my hair in a pigtail now...

...and I can eat EVERYTHING with all of my teeth. Check out my molar, too!

I can't wait to show off all my new skills at Christmas. See you soon!

Ten Days in the Life of a 17 Month Old

So I am going to backtrack a little...

Sunday was spent in the colllld! but we went for a carriage ride in Westport after Mom's yoga. The carriage ride was free, mom's yoga was free, but we had to pay for the hot cocoa... which was ok, since it was my first try... and it had FLUFF in it. Best ever!

Mommy's friend Summer helped Mommy with a whole new wardrobe. It looks amazing,and I can spot MOMMA from far away now!I took this photo, by the way.

We had some amazing pizza that mommy and daddy made the other night... fresh mozz and chicky and brocccccccolee. I taught Mommy and Daddy to eat with their hands!

Mommy's new gear is great, but these are really 'me', don't you think?

I have them on right, right?

The week before we were in the near Catskills with Dan and Libby. here are some pics of me being cute with them...

Daddy carried me around a lot. It's kinda annoying. Got legs now, thanks!

Lot's of pretty stuff!

I also have to publicly thank Mimi for the Christmas package! I will post photos with my Christmas update, coming soon... we just need to straighten this tree...

What a Week: Much to Give Thanks For

What a week! I started out digging for buried treasure...

Then I got to go to Boston and hang out with my Grandma and Grandpa. They did all kinds of fun stuff with me, like reading...

And we went for walks in the super super cold!

And we played with the laptop they bought me!

Then on Thursday for Turkey Day we were invited to Janice and Francois's for Thanksgiving Dinner, where we got to see the Thompsons and eat lots of yummy yummy food! They brought me a new toy! Square peg goes in round hole, right?


Everyone was trying to figure out my laptop. I know, those of us born with the Internet are so saavy!

I like this guy!

My family is cute!

As far as thanks, I have lotZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ....

Where does the time go?'s been a while since I've posted about all of the fun things going on. Aside from getting a mouthful of teeth (all the better to chew my food with!) I have been honing my skateboarding skills.

My mom's friend Sarah came to visit and she brought me a really cool hat that she made all by herself!

She also made us her famous Pasta Carbonara. Yum!

While she was visiting, we went to see an exhibit at the Whitney Museum, where I had my first knish...

...and then we went for sushi at the site of Mom's 30th surprise birthday party--Jeollado. I looooove seaweed salad!

Trick or Treat!

This year for Halloween, I got to dress up as a ladybug! Mimi found me an awesome costume that was warm enough to wear outside without a jacket. It helps that today was a really nice day. My mom says she can't remember a Halloween that was ever this nice out. I'm a pretty lucky kid!

After school, we went to my friend Lillian's house. She was dressed up as a turtle this year.

Her dad was raking some leaves into piles just for me to jump and play in! Afterwards, we went trick or treating in town. We really hit the jackpot because they gave us two whole pizzas!

Apple Picking at Silverman's Farm

Well, it's been a couple of weeks now since we went apple picking with Aron, Tara, and Lillian--

--but that doesn't mean I didn't have a ton of fun! Daddy & I ate apples right off the trees...

...and in the pumpkin patch, I took my time figuring out which pumpkin I wanted...finding one that was just my size!

A Visit from Mimi

Mimi came to visit last weekend, and we had a ton of fun. When Mommy & I went to get her at the airport, Mimi tried to hide from me, but I knew her voice from the first "Elllllaaa.....Belllllaaaa..." I ran right up to her and gave her a big hug! (Too bad my mom was too busy watching to take a picture...would have been a great shot!)

One of my favorite things right now is putting shoes on my baby's feet. Everyone needs to wear shoes! Shoes are lots of fun. I am really excited, because my Mimi bought me some new shoes from See Kai Run.

Mimi is such a great person to play with. She cheers me on no matter what I do!

She even let me hang out in her bed reading with her.

On Sunday I took her to my favorite restaurant, Valencia Luncheria. We shared the fried plantains. I can't wait for her next visit...I love you, Mimi!

Daddy's Birthday Weekend

This weekend my dad's friends Joe & Shelly came over with Hudson. He tried eating Cheerios, which he didn't seem to like too much yet. My dad got to go surfing and skating with Joe while Mommy and Shelly hung out with me & Hudson.

On Sunday, Deirdre & Jeff hosted a party for Dad. A lot of our friends came. I helped put the empty bottles away. I'm starting to be a real big help around the house!

Even though the party was over by 6 pm, Monday morning came too fast for all of us! It was a morning worthy of a pirate shirt (Daddy didn't take a picture of the back so you don't get the full effect...)
