Week 29 August 9th-12th

This was Mommy's last full week of summer break.  She goes back to work mid-week next week and she is NOT happy about it.  She really enjoyed the time we spent together.

I'm soo much better at sitting on my own now.  I'm even playing with toys while doing it and not falling over.

Looks like I'm hitting Elmo, huh?

Are you ok?

Time to tackle!

I met up with Alex again this week.  This will probably be our last weekday play date for a while since Mommy has to return to work.  Alex is standing already!  Man!  I am SOO behind.  I'm never going to catch up to him.  Mommy is holding me up here and trying to take a picture at the same time (hence the slight blurriness).  Auntie Monnette wanted me to "sweep the legs!" so that Alex wouldn't start walking any time soon.  I haven't watched any movies yet, Auntie Monnette, so I don't know what that means.

Alex says hello, Mommy.

I've got him now!  And yes, my hand is on his butt.  I don't really have great control over my extremities especially when the object of my attention is moving around so much.

Thanks for sharing your book, Alex!  Sorry for barfing a bit on it though.

Yes, I STILL do love my toes.

I really like eating purple yams too.

And peas.

What's that on my head?  It's a hood from a sweater Mommy is knitting for me.  Whew!  Mommy's happy that it fits my head.  It's supposed to be for when I'm 18-24 months old. 

Now that I can sit and pull toys toward me...back to the gnawing.

Look what Mommy found in her laundry basket!  Another baby!  Oh wait!  That's me!  I don't look like I can fit in that at all, unless I'm curled up.

Mommy has half a week of summer break left with me before she has to go to work.  What a bummer.  I like spending all my time with her.  I guess I'll just play with Grandma and Grandpa instead.


  1. The first pic looks like he's about to tickle Elmo...cuz you know... Elmo expects to be tickled! Elliot will surely thank us later for all the food faces we are taking of him. :-) I'm sure he loved the laundry basket, so warm! Elliot had a great time with you for the 2 summer months that you have to go back to work!

  2. Oh, if only we could all retain the flexibility to reach our toes to our mouth for our entire lives!

  3. You do NOT want him to walk yet or even crawl. The longer they're immobile, the less you have to worry about. He's so outgrown the laundry basket. And good job on eating all this new food. Can't wait to see you this weekend!

  4. OK, I LOLed multiple times at this post! Monnette and "sweep the legs," hahaha! And I LOVE the pic of Elliot and Alex together with those big chubby cheeks--too cute! Even barfing on the book made me laugh, what's wrong with me?
