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.


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!


  1. Soooo much fun this month! Many new experiences! I have so much fun seeing the world through your eyes! I love the cow costume, the GQ pose with the fire engine, and the ice cream eating session!

  2. Elliot, you had such a fun month!! You dressed up as a cow, you rode a horse, you had ice cream, and you walked like a chimpanzee. What will you do next? Go to Vegas and play some craps with your uncle? I can't wait to see you and Alyssa is looking forward to playing with you more. We will see you very soon!!

  3. So much has happened since the last time I read the post! Elliot, you're getting to be such a big boy. And love you in the sweater! I like Mommy's new haircut too. I can't believe you're almost two! Hope to see you again soon.

  4. Funny, I make the same face when people take away my ice cream...

  5. Oh my goodness, so many adorable things in one post (and one very late Auntie to the commenting party)!

    1) Marc and Terry have very nice grass!

    2) Adorable cow costume, and I love the pic of you with mommy and mommy's haircut (Sabby, I know you've had it short before but I don't think I've ever actually seen it).

    3) You look great in that sweater mommy made you! A regular Baby Gap ad, I tell ya!

    4) That toy car looks pretty awesome.

    5) Noodles are the best. You are totally right to enjoy them as much as you did in that video. So, so cute :)

    6) Hmm, wait, maybe ice cream is the'll find that Auntie Karen is a big piggy and looooves food :) I also love that video of you scooping the ice cream out of the tub for yourself! Grandma must really love you to give you the whole tub like that!

    Thanks for the fun distractions from work, Elliot! :)
