23 Months Birthday and Merry Christmas!!

As the title says, I am now 23 months old!  On Christmas to be exact, but more on that later.  Here are some pictures of the past month.

After Thanksgiving, my parents brought me to the playground.  There aren't many pictures of me playing, but I did like this dinosaur thing.

Hmm....what's there to eat, Mommy?











Yummy pasta!

Sometimes I just like to lay down on the ground at home and relax.
















We got our Christmas tree really early this year...during Thanksgiving weekend.  Look how pretty it is.

Uncle Chris came over from Thailand to visit.












I wasn't sure of him at first, but I warmed up quickly.






Sometimes I listen to music on Daddy's headphones.







Here's a family picture of us in front of our tree.  Our tree looks nice now, but Mommy forgot to take a picture of how it ended up as the month progressed.  I kept taking the ornaments and throwing it around, that most of the ornaments ended up on the top half of the tree and the bottom half was bare.

Look at what I got from my grandparents!  A cool bike/tricycle thing!

I'm already climbing on it.

Peek-a-boo.  For some reason, I'm an ostrich here.












I also like posing with my cap for Mommy. I put the cap on all by myself too. 
















 
I'm having too much fun!

One night we went to go see Christmas lights by my grandparents' home.  It was really cold though, so we only had a few pictures.

On Christmas, everyone came over to my house.  We took lots of pictures.

I got a new book from Alyssa's grandparents Liz and Ed.  Thank you!



Here I am opening my present from my parents.  They were 4 cars.  I LOVED them!  I spent the rest of the evening playing with them.


Thanks, Mommy and Daddy!


 Before dinner, Grandma wanted to toast with me.
 

 I was more than happy to do that because I got to drink some apple cider too!  Thanks, Grandma!


 We all toasted here!  Where's my cider??












Since it was Auntie Nathalie's birthday, we had cake too!  I'm so excited for cake!  Happy Birthday Auntie Nathalie!

She was so nice she let me try to blow out the candles.

And of course, Grandma spoiled me again letting me eat cake.





 and chocolate...






 





 ...Did I mention cake already?  Check out how big that piece is!





Well, we have a full schedule in the next few days.  There will be more to post soon!

22 Months Birthday, rest of October, and Thanksgiving!

As mentioned in the title of this blog, I am now 22 months old!  Can you believe it?

So although it's nearing the end of November, I still have some Halloween pictures and the end of October event pictures to show you.

We went to Uncle Marc, Auntie Terry, and Meagan's house the Sunday before Halloween. Ooh, a soccer ball.

I also figured out how to play the tambourine.

Mommy showed up at my daycare on Halloween to watch our parade.








Here I am when I finally saw her.  I was soo happy to see her.  I didn't want her to leave, so Mommy had to walk the parade with me.

After school was out, Mommy and Daddy brought me to Hillsdale mall to go trick-or-treating.  We bumped into Uncle Eddy and Lucas there!

I don't know what trick-or-treating is all about, but it was interesting watching all the people.


One night after I took a bath, Mommy was messing around with my hair.  It's really because I don't like getting my hair towel dried, so Mommy was tricky and made it a game.  But look at how much hair I have!










Look!  I can actually fit in the sweater Mommy knitted me a while back.  I think I'm pretty good looking, if I do say so myself.

Here I am cruising in the car that Great Auntie Leona and Great Uncle Paul bought me.

I had a play date with Alex one day.  He wanted me to get into his crib, so we just read together.  Too bad all you see are our heads.  Well, really, you just notice how big my head is compared to his.


At daycare, we had an early Thanksgiving feast.  Like my hat?


Happy early Thanksgiving!

Mommy wanted to take a video of me eating one of my favorite foods...noodles.

Look at my tent!  Apparently, my parents bought it for me a while ago, but just took it out recently.  It's soo much fun!

First off, how do you like my new 'do?  Second of all, look at what Grandma let me eat!  Yum!

She had to help me first, but I soon figured out how to do it on my own.


Check me out!

And this is what happened after my mean parents said "No more ice cream."  What can I say?  I like what I like.







So Daddy let me eat some of his, which didn't help when he finally took it away again.

I know there have been pictures of me doing this before, but videos really are much better.  Mommy saw me doing this around the island and had to catch me.

On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, we went to the San Jose Children's Discovery Museum.  We've never been there before but I sure did have a lot of fun.

Who can resist THIS firefighter?



I was trying to play peek-a-boo with a stranger (while we were in an ambulance), but he never looked at me.




Then I found this water activity.  Mommy knew I'd love it, so she grabbed a water proof smock and suited me up.  Had she known about this, she would've brought me extra clothes because I still got pretty wet.

This was so cool...when I put the ball in the tube, it shot the ball up.

I know I mentioned already that I like to play with balls.  It seems to be a theme in this blog.



I also got to climb this Chinese dragon.

Daddy and I were reading together.

Peek-a-boo!














I didn't want to leave, and I threw a pretty good tantrum, but my parents knew I was tired and hungry.  So on the way home, after drinking some milk, I fell asleep.  Mommy kept laughing because I could barely keep my eyes open.  I guess my parents know me well.

On Thanksgiving day, we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  I got to play a lot with Great Auntie Leona and Great Uncle Paul.  They are so fun!




I played so much, I threw up a little.  It probably had a little to do with the fact that I was riding a horse.

It's all ok though.  I was happy and it's all fun!  I'm thankful for my Mommy and Daddy, grandparents, aunties and uncles, and all my extended family.  Happy Turkey Day everyone!
