26 Months Birthday and Tahoe!

Happy 26 months birthday to me!  Some times I just like being silly.  Mommy bought me some new clothes and I played with the sticker that came with it.
We went to Iris's one year birthday party and here's a picture Auntie Rita took of me and Mommy.
 
I don't play with the tunnel very often, but I do enjoy it when I DO get to play with it.











Two weekends ago, Auntie Jen and Alyssa came to  visit. I missed Uncle Michael, so I was looking at the phone while Uncle Michael was talking to us.

 We had lunch with Grandpa and Auntie Nat.


  I also really like trying on my parents' shoes.  Here I am styling with Mommy's boots.
 
The next weekend, I saw Auntie Kristine.  She's going to have a baby too!  We don't know if it's a boy or girl, but either way, I can't wait to meet the new baby!



Uncle Mike, Auntie Jen, and Alyssa came up again this weekend too!


At dinner, Alyssa and I wanted to play upstairs in the restaurant, so we kept laughing and screaming and looking down at Mommy and Uncle Mike.




My parents don't know why I do this, but sometimes I like running around the house with my arms behind my back.  They think it's funny.  I just like doing it.


Apparently, Daddy likes it too...

As you saw in the title, we went somewhere called Lake Tahoe.  Mommy and Daddy said I was going to see snow, so I had to dress up in this outfit.  I had a hard time walking in these boots though.



It was a bit cold, so Daddy put on mittens for me.
We went to Hansen's tubing "resort".  According to Mommy, it wasn't really a resort.  I guess because the weather has been warm, there wasn't much snow around.  The workers there had to bring in snow on their ATV (ooooh, ATV...I was definitely more interested in looking at THAT than I was at the snow).  But in either case, here I am going tubing with Daddy.

I liked it the first couple of times.  By the third time, the snow hit my face and I wasn't thrilled.  But here I am the fourth time enjoying myself.

At the cabin we stayed at, there were two other kids around my age.  I was actually the youngest AND the only boy.  I was ROCKIN!  (There were actually two other slightly younger girls there too, but they had left by the time we were playing here).





On the way back home, Daddy stopped by Bridal Veil Falls.  It was the first time I saw a waterfall, and I liked getting wet by the mist.









Finally, I was getting a bit hungry on the way back so I thought I'd munch on something close by.
It was a good month with lots of visitors and activities.  My parents were a bit bummed there wasn't more snow for me to play in, but I was content.  Considering it was my first time, I don't know what the big deal was.  When I held the snow, it was really cold.

Until next time!

25 Month Birthday!

Sorry everyone, for the late post.  Mommy forgot what day it was and she forgot to let me use the computer.  We had some very cool visitors this last month, so let's start.

First off, Mommy had to take this picture of me when I was napping.  Apparently, she thought it was cute that even in my sleep, I was giving my doggy a kiss.

Great Uncle Zadig came to visit.  He hasn't seen me since I was 2 months old.  I wasn't sure of him at first, but once he started giving me ema-eme (edamame) to eat, I was sold.










My parents took me to the farmer's market and bought me some strawberries.  As you already know, I LOVE strawberries.  Here's a big bite for you!

It was Chinese New Year also this past month.  I was able to feed this lion. I wasn't even scared of him!  I'm so brave.







Uncle Calvin, Great Auntie Leona and Great Uncle Paul came to visit around then too.
I was a little bored by the conversation at the table, that's for sure.
The best part of that weekend they were here was the fact that I got to see construction trucks!  Oooh!!!
After we went to a friend's one year birthday party, I was pooped.  I actually fell asleep in the car!  Mommy says it doesn't happen very often.














Another weekend, Uncle David, Uncle James, and Great Auntie Veronica came to town from Hong Kong.  I haven't seen them since I was 15 months old, but I sure did give them some love!

Great Auntie Veronica was sooo nice!  She bought me new clothes and CRACKERS!!!













My parents decided to bring me back to the Academy of Sciences.  They figured that since I'm older now, I'd appreciate it more.

I can see fish swimming in there!
I've never seen a butterfly close up before.











I really didn't like this one.

What are they squiggly things anyway?  Mommy says they're called jellyfish.

While I did enjoy some of it, it was a toss-up.  My parents think I have to be a little older to really start liking this place.  I was more content to run up and down ramps.




To end things, here's a video of me laughing.  I really like it when Daddy is silly.

Most of you know already, but one of the reasons why Mommy forgot what day it was is because she has something called "Mommy brain."  Since she became my Mommy, she tends to forget things once in a while.  But now, she also has something called "pregnancy brain."  Apparently, I'm going to get a younger brother or sister this July!  No wonder Mommy is so forgetful!
