... with my homies.

Mommy wasn't feeling all that hot this morning, so Daddy took the mid-morning shift with me. We built a fort. Can we say AWESOME?
Ah back in Blacksburg... back in my element. I've got my Hokie tutu, my toboggan, and my polka dotted chair... THE LIFE!
Mommy has been letting me try to use my spoon the last couple of weeks now. We may need a miracle on this one people. She gives me the spoon and then takes it away from me. APPARENTLY I'm not 'holding it correctly.' I've got a few choice words for her, but of course I can't say them yet. Doesn't she realize a toddler needs to 'explore'? I don't like to actually put the spoon up to my mouth. My style is more 'let me stir the applesauce around until it's all over my tray.'
This is the view as soon as you walk into the front door.
There are 2 bedrooms like this.
Master bath. There is also an addition 1 1/2 bath, but they weren't worth photographing.
And there you have it!

Well we've done it! Mommy took me out today to buy a potty. We got the Safety 1st Comfy Cushy. Mommy did not do her research before making this purchase, so we're not going to practice using it yet. She says if anyone out there knows of a FABULOUS potty that I just can't live without to please let her know... thank you. :)
(Disclaimer: We're not a very openly political family, but this could not be helped.)

Sorry there has been a lack of posting the past couple of weeks. We've been back and forth from Abingdon (Daddy audits a big coal company out there)... the dreaded 2 winter months have arrived. While we're in a very nice home out there, it's just not Blacksburg. We came home this past Friday, so Mommy could get herself ready for her friend Heather's baby shower in Richmond. She was gone all day Saturday, but made sure we had fun today while Daddy was working in Roanoke (YES ON A SUNDAY!).
What can I say... I LOVE TUNNELS! (I have 2 at my house!)

Daddy and I took Mommy to the doc today to check on my little baby. All is well! We'll be finding out whether or not I'm having a baby brother or sister on February 12th! Mark your calendars all you grand-parentals out there. Until then, here is a picture of the bump for all you bump lovers out there. Mommy says she didn't stick out this much until she was like 5/6 months pregnant with me, which is intriguing because she is still down a pound from the first appointment back in November... OH MYLANTA she'll be ginormous! She continues to feel the baby moving all around... I can't wait until I can feel it too!!!

Guess what? Mommy dyed my bath red! She also let me draw all over the bathtub with these hot new bath crayons and markers... SO FUN!
That's me creating my masterpiece.
Splashing like it's going out of style... look how red my water was!
Today I'm officially 15 months old! Yay me! Now normally this week I would be going to the pediatrician to get some shots and a physical, however, I'll have to wait until I'm 16 months old. (Mommy and Daddy are not slacking off for the record.) Back about a month before I turned one Daddy tried to make my one year appointment. Apparently my doc was out of town around that time and booked solid for a month... whatevs, so I go in at 13 months. Now one of the shots I'm supposed to get at 15 months HAS to be taken EXACTLY three months after one that I got when I turned 13 months... so there you have it... I'll be a month late. Not a whole lot that can be done. Mommy's guessing I'm about 23-24 lbs though... and doesn't dare pull out the measuring tape without Daddy here to measure my height, so we'll have to get back to you in a month with the actual measurements.

It turns out I've been keeping a secret from you all...

I have some sad news to report. I lost my first toys... the first ones of my ENTIRE life... all 14 1/2 months of it. Mommy prides her anal retentive tendencies in taking inventory of all my toys after I go to sleep to make sure all are accounted for. A few weeks ago her and Daddy noticed that two of the female Little People from my school bus were missing. They searched everywhere. Every inch of the house... every centimeter of the car... every purse and pocket... no luck. One afternoon upon returning from work, Daddy went to throw some trash away and noticed a Christmas ornament on the top of the trash in the garbage can... had Mommy thrown them away? Now that would be silly! After putting 2 and 2 together... the sleuths that they are... Mommy and Daddy have determined that I probably threw my Little People into the can and they are on a never ending vacation to the county dump. Female Little People... may you rest in peace.
We finished up our Christmasing in Norfolk/Suffolk with my Nana and Pop and my Gpa and Pearl. The first stop was Norfolk where I indulged in Nana's homemade spaghetti sauce... it was a winner.
All is well though... little baby doll can still ride safely inside... however, when I'm steering no one's ankles are safe.
I also ate my first candy cane... glorious.
When we returned from our trip to Iowa, I was shocked to see that SANTA CLAUS came to my house!!!!
Good thing I had been practicing my opening presents skills because there were quite a few to keep me busy. Mommy would hand me a present to open, I would be so amazed by it and want to play, then Daddy would take it right away only to have Mommy give me another one. They really need to work on their technique because by the end of this constant 'indian giving' I became quite peeved and made Mommy open the rest of my gifts.
