Alexander and Jordan
Year 1 Week 39

Alexander:  We had a great day at the zoo over the weekend!  We went to the Como Park zoo in St. Paul.  We saw monkeys (oh oh ah ah), zebras (bee-bee), and giraffes (winn - which means horse).  The best part of the zoo was the ducks in the pond.  My parents were not too thrilled about that.  They said we could have stayed home and seen the ducks in the park.  I can't help what I like.
We also tried to go on a train (choo-choo) and a truck (fuh [we hope he learns the "tr" sound before the "k" sound]) at the amusement park there, but I got too scared.  I even went with my mom and dad, but it was still too scary.  I cried the whole time on the train and cried so much on the truck that we got off before it started.  I like to look at them, but not ride them.
    I have a pretty bad cold these last 2 days.  I have been up at night coughing.  My nose is always running, and I just do not feel good.  My mom was nice enough to make me some hot soup.  My dad, on the other hand, sat on my chest and arms and squirted yucky syrup in my mouth.  There's no problem telling who loves me more.

Jordan:  I almost rolled over today.  I got most of the way there and then fell back.  I will keep trying, and I will tell you when it happens.  I am also smiling a lot recently.  Sometimes that smile turns into a full laugh.  Then I am truly irresistible.  When I smile that big, Alexander comes up to me and hugs me.  Unfortunately he is not always gentle about it.  The other unfortunate thing is that I am like Alexander when he was young in that I stop and stare at the camera whenever it is pointed at me.  That makes it a challenge to get me on video laughing but they did it (see movies).

 

1. 2. 3. 1-2.  I like to help clean up around the house.  I do not understand what my dad meant when he said, "Wax on, wax off."  And why do I have to go paint the house next?
3.  Do I look like a caged animal?  I am training to go to the zoo...to live (at least that's what my parents said).
4. 5. 6. 4.  Wow!  Look at the ducks.  Those are much better than the ones at home.  These are behind a fence.
5-6.  These things look much more dangerous close-up.  I will stick to looking and not touching.
7. 8. 9. 7.  Ride 'em cowboy.  (Just don't turn this thing on.)
8-9.  I do not know what is so special about the zoo.  I can suck on my hand at home.
10. 11. 10-11.  You can't hear me laugh, but you can certainly tell that I think my mom looks silly.
