Playing with Auntie Do Do
My little unconventional slider :)
This is a new family picture that we took our last Sunday in Cochabamba before Mommy and I got on the plane to come "home."
I wanted to make sure that everyone knew that my blankie made it safe and sound to Texas with me... what would I do without blankie?
This is my new favorite toy at Nana and Papa's house... did you know this is the same piano that my mommy and Auntie Em played on when they were little? Pretty cool I think!
And this is the so so so cool tricycle that one of my mommy's friends from Harding, Miss Jennifer, is letting us borrow while we're here. I ride it everywhere... and I mean everywhere, inside, outside, and all around, I'm so glad that I got to borrow it while we're here visiting! Thank you Miss Jennifer and Susie!
The first week we were here it was warm enough to play in the pool and my Papa was my water playing buddy! I learned really quickly that if I stood at the back door and said "water" really pathetic like... he would come and take me outside to play! That Papa of mine is so much fun and definitely a great play buddy!
One of my mommy's best friends in the world came to visit us from Chicago (I'm guessing that's pretty far away because it seemed like a big deal to mommy that she came so far to see us :) Jen and I played and played together and she brought me some really cool birthday presents too... so she must think I'm pretty special.
We got to be here for my Auntie Em's birthday (who by the way is one of my new favorite people in the world!) and these pictures are of mommy lighting the candles, me helping Auntie Em blow them out, and just fun times with Auntie Em.
This was my first real Halloween and it was super fun! My Nana bought me a Superman outfit (that she says I can wear as my Pjs too!) and so I got to be a superhero :) I got to show my great Grannie Sterne my outfit when she came over for dinner and then we went to Starbucks to see Auntie Em who had to work :( But then we went trick-or-treating on my Nana and Papa's street and I have to say I think I did pretty good! I said please and thank-you at every house and even shared some of candy with other people (and one puppy dog :) along the way!
Today we got to do one of the coolest things yet! Mommy wasn't feeling good this morning... but Daddy and Nana decided we could brave the zoo by ourselves and it was so so so much fun!!! We got to see zebras, tigers, and gorillas... but my favorite part was getting to feed the fishes and the birds. There was a place where you could buy these sticks with birdseed on them and then go and feed the birds! It was the best part of the zoo and my daddy got some great pictures of our fun time! Besides all the fun things we're getting to do, we're getting to hang out with Nana, Papa and Auntie Em and that has been so good for me, Mommy and Daddy! Mommy is making her habitual Wal-Mart runs (and occasionally dragging me along for the "fun"). I'm sure she'll tell you all about her fun times soon... but for now I'm going to go to bed... my two-year old body has finally adjusted to the slight time change and mommy and daddy say we're headed to Brownwood tomorrow so I better get a good night's sleep. Thanks for taking time to look at all my fun pictures and for praying for us while we travel! Night-Night.
Can someone please tell my mommy that enough is enough already?
I'm starting to worry about this woman!!!
What photo shoot is complete without a new picture of Daddy and me? And this one's even better because Daddy let me play with his basketball!
Nathan's special rocket cake... for those Little Einstein fans out there, you'll recognize Rocket and appreciate the work that mommy had to go through to help a Bolivian cake maker to understand why this particular rocket was so special to the birthday boy :) but overall I think they did a great job with just a coloring book cover to work from!
Don't you know Dad... this is fun and all, but I still haven't figured out how to pedal this thing, so I'm not really sure where you want me to take her :)
(Mommy? Who's Mommy? I've got a new best friend and his name is DADDY!)
There is nothing in this life that can't be solved, or at least survived, when I'm wearing my so cool rain boots... see?
