Year 1 Week 11

    In talking with some of my daycare friends, I think I was shortchanged for Easter.  They all came in with candy and baskets of toys.  I got nothing.  In fact, my parents had some friends over for hamburgers on the grill, and I got nothing.  No Easter eggs, no candy, no stuffed animals, nothing.  I am going to have to keep a closer eye on them in the future with holidays.  Was I supposed to get presents on St. Patrick's Day?  Because if so, I didn't.
  My biggest trick now is copying everything that my dad does.  I can play Indian with my mouth and hand, I can pound my chest like a gorilla, and I play the trumpet with any tube-shaped objects I can find.  He has assured me these are all very useful skills to have.
    You should see my mommy's tummy.  I can see my little brother getting bigger every week.  I haven't been able to feel him move, but my mom and dad have.  Here is a picture:

1. 2. 3. 1-2.  I have figured out that I can stand on the upside-down toy box bins.  I have even figured out how to reach things on the table I am not supposed to have.
3. I did not really like this part of the jungle gym.
4. 5. 6. 4-6.  We had a great day at the park.  It was 60 degrees, and I got to run around and go swing.
7. 8. 9. 7.  If I sit real nice, will you keep feeding me orange pieces?
8.  Banana, cell phone and the permission to poop in my pants.  I bet you are all jealous of me.
9.  I don't want to talk.  I just want to press the buttons. 
10. 11. 12. 10.  I just learned that jumping on the bed is a ton of fun.
11.  Why do you come looking for me if I am quiet for more than 10 seconds?  I wasn't doing anything really bad.
12.  What?  So I like to play with the mixer.  What is the big deal? 
13. 14. 15. 13.  One block on top of the next.
14.  Hold it steady.
15.  Admire my work (Yes, I really did stack these.  I had only a little bit of help from dad.)
16. 17. 18. 16.  Now destroy it.
17.  Aren't I cute?
18.  I like it when dad does the nebulizer treatments.  He sings "The Ants go Marching" and "This Old Man".
19. 20. 19.  I love my Baby Einstein DVDs.  They are just what I need for a relaxing Saturday morning.
20.  Don't ask how I got into this position.  I don't know.  A better question is why were they taking pictures of me while I was asleep?
