Thanksgiving and then Christmas cookies

I have been a busy busy boy the last week. For Thanksgiving Mommy & Daddy took me to Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie’s house. They ate yummy turkey and all the fixings. All i got was milk and icky green beans! Oh well, I guess next year I will get to eat more BIG people food. We all had a wonderful time and appreciated the hospitality. My cousin Anna fed me my dinner. She held the bottle just right and I gobbled it all up.

Grandma let me ride the rocking horse… that was fun!

On Saturday we went back to make Christmas cookies. Grandpa Howie helped watch me when everyone baked cookies. Mommy snuck me a little taste of cookie dough! Thanks mom! Grandma Jo let me play with the BIG spoon and help bake. Next year everyone said I can EAT the cookies too!

I am having so much fun being a little boy. Next Saturday I will be 6 months old! I can’t wait!


Today I joined Gymboree. Mommy will take me two times a week to classes. One class is for music and the other is for play. I had a real fun time today playing with Gymbo the clown, bubbles, parachutes and gym equipment. I practiced standing up and building my crawling muscles. I got to beat on a big drum and giggled a lot. The teacher laughed at me because I drooled and/or spit-up all over the mat, balls, parachute, play tunnel and Mommy.

Because I am getting to be such a big boy and have learned to sit by myself (just a little while though) I get to begin in Level 2! The people are really nice there and I think I am going to really enjoy it.

Mommy & Daddy nego…negotia…negotia… got a real good deal AND they get to take me to Baby Sign classes too! That way I can tell then what I want or need before I can speak! I think it will be cool!

I ALSO (yeah Mommy & Daddy DID get a good deal) get FREE PLAY at the gym whenever I want (unless there is a class). That way Grandma Susie, Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie can take me to play too! (*hint hint hint*)

Well, off for my nap. Oh yeah I almost forgot to say that today is Sweet Potato Day! YUMMY!
