I'm a Toddler!!!!! OH MY!!!!






So it is official, I am a toddler and mommy and daddy are SCARED!!!!!

So here are the tell-tale signs I am a toddler
1) I don't crawl anymore, that is sooooo last week
2) I know exactly what I want, but no one else can figure it out
3) I am only happy feeding myself, and the messier the meal, THE BETTER
4) I am ruling the roost with an iron fist, I like to bark orders and shake my fist and finger
5) My William Defoe (see the Platoon movie picture) impersonation is pretty darn good. My tantrum skills have recently EXPLODED.
6) I am stronger than mommy, she can't hold me anymore if it isn't in my will
7) I now need to be under 24 hour NSA surveillance to ensure my safety and well being.
8) I am only satisfied playing with very expensive electronics that are very fragile, such as Auntie Lindsay's computer as a drum and grandpa's new TV remote. In a nutshell, I want to play with the ONE thing you are trying to keep away from me, and I WON'T GIVE UP
9) When given sugar (which I really like, and know how to beg for) I act like Chucky
10) Mommy and Daddy have had multiple years taken off their lives in the past week.... What do you mean falling down the stairs is bad???? I thought it was fun.... LETS DO THAT AGAIN!!!





Daddy's Christmas Party... FOR KIDS!!!!






Daddy's work is sooo cool. They have a Christmas party for kids. Santa wasn't there.... THANK GOODNESS, that guy is scary, but they had this bear thing..... That was pretty facinatin

What I did in November......


Like I said, not only is mom behind, but she can't get the pictures up in the right order..... SO here you go world, through the power of the internet we have gone from December BACK to November:) November was a fun month so I guess we need to get these pictures up.






Nice afternoon outside
There's nothing like a nice Fall walk

Thanksgiving at Daniel's, I tell you what, I will be thankful to get this hat off

Now this is my kinda hat, nice and non-descript. I even look like a "spook"
11 months old and not sitting still

CANDY........ You guys have been holding out on me. Thank Goodness there were some Charleston Chews leftover from Halloween...... MMMM GOOD

California Academy of Sciences







Mom is sooo behind, even with a week off work she can't manage to get the blog updated. These pictures were taken when we went to California Academy of Sciences the beginning of December. It is a great place, there is a rainforest, and an aquarium, a planetarium (which they don't let little dudes in.... bummer) and penguins. We had a lot of fun. We went with my buddy Jackson, his parents, and my big buddy Daniel.

Then we went to see Santa, not so brave. Mommy almost cried again..... from laughing at me....

School Pictures are Here - 11 Months Old




Man I am a handsome little dude:) and I love to flirt with the camera lady. So since these pictures came in yesterday, mom figured she should put them up and update my stats.
So at 11 months here is what I am up to
1. The top shelf of my book shelf is in my sight and the objects are in my reach..... Mom tied the lamp down as well as my sock/shoe basket. We recently had an incident where a shoe was lost for about three days, so it is a preventative measure. I really don't like where mommy was going suggesting I did anything wrong... it was the cat Jack.
2. I am standing unassisted for longer times.
3. I have taken up to 4 steps and I walk very well assisted with only one of mommy's hands, but I really like it when I have one of mommy's hands and one of daddy's hands. I also think the game where mommy sets me up to walk and I fall into her hands is SUPER FUN!!!! Maybe that is why I am not walking as much as I probably could.
4. Food, Mommy lost track of everything I have tried and liked. It is safe to say that if it is food, I will eat it. If it isn't food, I might eat it too:)
5. Words, Ma Ma, Dada, Duck (as in I DON'T LIKE THE DUCKS - Still reeling from the game, why God why, I was a good boy...), bapa, bapple, ubla. I really like to sit in my carseat and talk to myself.
6. I really like music. I bop my head to the beat, I love it when mommy dances with me. I think when daddy plays "Clancy Lowered the Boom" on his iPhone, I have died and gone to heaven.... (Look the song up, you won't be disappointed)
7. Hats, I hate them on me, but when mommy wears one, I laugh and laugh and laugh. She is soooo silly looking in a hat. Doesn't she know she will get hat hair. That is why I don't wear one.
8. Friends at school, I like everyone. Once I am there I really don't need mommy, until she goes to leave... Then I let her know how much I love her. Doesn't she know my school is way cooler than "her school".
9. Pets, still got three cats. I befriended the neighbor's dog last night. She really isn't as bad as I thought. She cleans up after my messes, and lets me pet her. She is going to be my buddy:)
10. Teeth, still have 6. I eat like a hamster.... who needs more. I am just miserable and don't sleep well when I am getting them anyways.
11. Toys, I like the Pampered Chef Quick stir pitcher. It is so useful. Just wait until I can mix mudpies with it. I also LOVE my zoom zoom ride in walk behind car. A few days ago I wedged myself between it and the crib...
12. Sleep, ahhhh the magical sleep... So I don't scream when they put me down now in the evening, but I have negotiated one night feeding between 2-4 (last night was 1...) It is just so dry I am thirsty. Mommy is pretty parched to so she gets it. Luckily I go right back down. My naps are ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!!! Where would we even start to explain. Life is just too much fun, I have to be ready to go whenever. Oh well.... At least mommy feels rested in general.

BUMMER!!!!!!!!

Like I said, not only is mom behind, but she can't get the pictures up in the right order..... SO here you go world, through the power of the internet we have gone from December BACK to November:) November was a fun month so I guess we need to get these pictures up.

THE BIG GAME!!!!! CIVIL WAR FOR THE ROSES!!!!








So my mommy can't manage to get pictures up of Thanksgiving and my 11 month old stats onto the blog, but this is HUGE and a MAJOR priority....






It's CIVIL WAR FOR THE ROSES!!!!!!!!, Mommy has a picture hanging in her cubicle that looks like I am praying and the caption is, "The Little(r) est Beaver Believer" and underneath it says "Please God, let the Beavers go to the Rose Bowl this year..... They almost did it last year. I promise to take all my bottles at Second Gen if you do this."






Well all you Beaver Fans out there, I came through this far for you... Tonight is Civil War for the Roses, and not only do I take my bottles at Second Gen, I am by far the BEST eater they have there and I have been a good boy so we got a good solid shot:) I don't care what Santa brings me, God needs to deliver on this:)






GO BEAVS!!!!!!!
Don't worry adoring fans.... Mommy has a great picture of our pre-game pep rally this morning that she will post when she gets home and she PROMISES!!!! To post my 11 month stats... Here's a hint, I am talking up a storm and have taken a few steps:)
GO BEAVS!!!!!



What a close game (33-37) but what a bummer outcome. The Ducks are going to the Rose bowl.... That's OK, I am still a beaver beliver.... NEXT YEAR!!!
