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!


  1. Congratulations, Elliot. You will enjoy having a brother or sister most of the time. Sometimes when he or she is older, they will get into your things. That's hard to deal with. Most of the time, though, a brother or sister will be fun to play with and you will enjoy teaching them all that you know. BTW, tell your Mommy and Daddy hello.

    1. Hi there! Thanks for visiting the blog and for the well wishes! We can't wait for Elliot to be a big brother.--Ryan

  2. How exciting....for all of you!


  3. The giggle video is AWESOME! Love it, baby giggles are the best!

    And I love that bored pose/look too--so funny :)

    Elliot is growing so fast! He looks different now--the haircut is probably part of it (cute, by the way!) but also he's turning into a little boy. Awww!

  4. Yes, Elliot is growing so fast! I find myself constantly wondering, "when did he learn that?" in response to something new he said.

  5. LOVE the first sleeping pic. So cute!!!

    The car sleeping pic is not bad either. He's got such awesome lashes.

    Elliot will have so much fun with his new brother/sister, especially once they start walking and talking.
