30 Days!

Hi, everybody!!
Sorry my mom is such a bad blogger. She just gets so busy and I make her really tired by the end of the day!

Sunday after Thanksgiving, I went and saw Santa! Here's a picture of me after seeing him. I was really excited!

This year, I liked Santa. I've heard that I might not like him so much next year, but this year he was pretty cool.
Mom had to take a picture of the picture to post it. See how good I was for the picture?!

Then, Santa and I had a serious talk about what I want for Christmas.

My mom is constantly sticking this camera thing in my face. One day, I just had enough of it and told her "Mommy, you STOP taking pictures!"
One of my new favorite things to do is play with Mommy's Coke Zero can after she gets done with the drink. I like to pretend like I am drinking it, too.
I'm already a good sharer, too. Look, I share with Shiner!

My first Thanksgiving was at our house this year! Here's my Pops, Aunt Emily and Suzie hanging out and watching some football before we ate.
Daddy and Uncle Alex are obsessed with some game on the computer called ESPN U. They always fight about whose campus is better.

My Nana came to have Thanksgiving with us, too! Here we are hanging out and I'm trying to sneak a peek at the TV. We're a house divided (notice my maroon pants and Nana's burnt orange shirt?!)

Here is Mommy's first ever Thanksgiving turkey! It turned out really well and everyone said it tasted delicious. I thought it was good, too, but I don't have anything to compare it to.
Here I am ready to eat some Thanksgiving lunch/dinner! I ended up getting too tired, though, and didn't want to eat anything so I took a nap instead. Later, I ate stuffing, turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn casserole and broccoli and rice casserole! I loved it all!
The night of Thanksgiving, it was REALLY cold outside so Mommy had to buy me some new fleece pajamas. Don't I look cute in them?
Here I am wearing some new pajamas that my CiCi got me. I really like them. I also still really like this elephant that makes classical music noise whenever you push his tummy. It always makes me smile :)
On Sunday after Thanksgiving, Mommy got out all the Christmas decorations. After she took everything out, I really liked playing in this box. I don't mess with the tree too much but there is a little tree in Daddy's study that I always try to pull on the ornaments. Now they keep the door closed to the study and I can't get in there so I just stand and bang on the door.
This is a new favorite activity of mine, in addition to opening all the cabinets and drawers. I'm very good at helping Mommy unload the dishwasher.
The other night, Mommy made the mistake of deciding to let me try to feed myself my dinner. Here is what it looked like shortly after she put it in front of me.
And here's what it looked like 5 minutes later. Oh, and just in case you thought I ate all that pasta that was in the middle part of my plate, I didn't. I just rubbed it around all over the tray and dropped it on the floor. I think maybe I ate 5 bites of it. I didn't like my banana and I didn't like my vegetables. Mostly, I just like to eat peanut butter, applesauce, yogurt, grilled cheese, and sometimes some peas and butternut squash. It's getting pretty difficult for mommy to come up with things for me to eat!
Here's another new favorite of mine. I love to open and close the garbage and recycling cans. It entertains me for a very long time.
Mommy and Daddy had to put gates at the bottom and top of the stairs because I learned how to climb up the stairs but I also try to follow Tucker and Shiner down the stairs and I'm not so good at that yet. Whenever Mommy has to go downstairs real quick to get something, I like to stand at the gate to watch for her to come back
I turned 11 months old yesterday!! And today, it's only 30 days until I turn ONE year old! Can you believe it?! Also, I took TWO steps yesterday!! But, I decided I didn't want to do it anymore after that, except I did take one little step for Daddy when he got home, just to show him I can do it. I also have SIX teeth now and I think I'm about to get two more. I say "hi," "yeah," and "bath" now. Sometimes Mommy thinks I say "bottle" whenever she says it to me, but she's not sure. I talk a lot of sentences, too, but Mommy and Daddy still aren't quite sure what I'm saying yet.
I'm still really loving Little Gym. We went back last week for the first time in two weeks because there was a break for Thanksgiving. Right when we walked in the gym I started screaming in excitement to be back! Everytime they bring the balls out, I runnnnnn as fast as I can when I'm holding Mommy's hands so I can get to the balls as quickly as possible. Sometimes I like to kick them and other times I like to crawl after them and hit them with my hands.
I think that's about all going on with me right now. Most of my friends are about to turn one year old as well so I have lots and lots of birthday parties coming up. I can't wait to eat cake!

Yayyy for turning 11 months old!
Hope everyone had a fun weekend and has a good week! I'll pester Mommy to make sure she posts again next week and doesn't take a long break!

Oh my, my. I can't believe how grown up he seems!! It's so funny because I feel like he and Mitchell are leading some kind of parallel life. :) It just gets better and better everyday, doesn't it!?

Brendan and Aiden met the same Santa Claus! Good beard, but creepy teeth - thankfully for you he didn't have a huge smile in Brendan's photo. Somebody's been smoking for 1000 or so years!

Sounds tiring.
