Can you believe that I am 2/3rds of a year old?!? Mom and Dad certainly cannot begin to fathom that these days. I keep telling them that is what I do..I just grow, grow, grow! Sue me! 🙂
I have been able to do a lot of new things these days! I can clap my hands to say “yay!” and when Mom and Dad sing “pat-a-cake”. Mom thinks it is so cool that I have been watching her do it for 7 months now and I can do it myself without being told to clap. I crawl around on my belly and get where I want to go. I also move at lightning speed in my walker these days!
Also, I can say “hey!” and “Dada” and I have even put those two words together. Mom is “patiently” waiting for me to say her name. Looks like she will have to wait just a little longer for that to happen.
I mentioned in my last blog that I would fill you guys in on my trip to Disney. Well, as you all may know I love watching Toy Story 3 in the car while we ride places. (It is supposedly the ONLY way I ride calmly.) I really love Woody and I laugh and smile when he is on the iPad screen. And I got to MEET WOODY in the Magic Kingdom! How cool is that?! Mom and Dad were afraid that I might get scared and cry when I met him, but nope..not me! I told him to “Reach for the sky!” and he did. We gave each other high-fives and he touched my face. We even took a picture together to remember the moment. It was really cool to finally meet him!
Dad ran a 1/2 marathon the morning of the day we went to Magic Kingdom. He is my hero! He ran 13.1 miles in 3:04..talk about a stud! Mom and Dad said I was the real MVP of the trip, though! I handled Disney and Universal Studios like a boss!
The day after we got back from Disney it snowed like 7 inches at my house! How “cool” is that?! I loved being out in the snow. I liked that cold, wet stuff hitting my face as it was falling from the sky. Dad built a snow man and Mom made snow cream! The snow stuck around for a few days and it was fun while it lasted.
This month Dad had 2 big events going on for the youth..D-Now and Acts 1:8 Missions weekend. It was fun to see our friends from Abbeville and get to hear some of Dad’s close friends preach.
In other news, Mom says I’m rarely still these days. What can I say..I like to move, woman! I’m also being told “no-no” with a shaking finger a lot, too. I’m a curious boy and like to pull everything down to my level and open drawers and cabinets so I can inspect it. 🙂 Mom has to do a lot of “redirecting my attention” now. I’m just trying to spice up her job as Mom a little.
See ya when I’m 3/4ths of a year old!
