Mid Jan Check In

18 01 2011

I felt like I just updated this blog but it’s been over two weeks….oops!  I really did mean to be better about posting on here – maybe if I had gotten my hubby an ipad like I wanted so he’d have that to surf the net on and leave MY laptop alone, I’d have realized it’s been so long since my last post.  I guess it doesn’t really matter – it’s not like I can’t just tell you what’s been going on the last two weeks.

This is Christopher eating his oatmeal.  Apparently he really, really likes apples & cinnamon flavored oatmeal.  He likes it so much he picked up this really heavy ceramic bowl and was trying to get every last drop.  This kid is so strong, it’s a bit frightening.

This is Christopher eating pasta.  He really likes pasta and really likes when he can feed it to himself.  His Nanna Angie was very excited when I gave her a copy of this picture.  She said she has a picture of Chris like this when he was a baby…..like father, like son 🙂

We went to the train show at the botanical garden in the Bronx

Christopher came to work with me – he had a cameo in a presentation reel we did.  He’s 14mos old and he was nearly as tall as the two 2 1/2 yr olds that were there!  And he wasn’t the least bit shy in front of the camera, go figure!

oh look, someone has figured out how to get out of his pen……great.

oh look, there are FIVE of me….how excited was he to see that!  I on the other hand feel like there are five of him running around and destroying everything around the house all of the time 🙂  This was a mirror in an exhibit at the LI Children’s Museum.  I just bought us a membership so we’ll be heading here often….plenty of room for him to roam there.

ooooh look – here he is breaking free again!  Love that look on his face…..all innocent like he’s not doing something wrong.  This kid is too much sometimes.  Good thing he’s cute as hell.

The Holiday season has begun…..

I love this time of year!!!  Thanksgiving was nice – Grandma Candy, Grandpa Richie, Grandma Angie, Aunt Victoria and Aunt Gen were here to celebrate with us.  What wasn’t so nice was monkey got sick – throwing up first, then diarrhea – poor thing spent dinner drinking pedialite while the rest of us ate turkey!  But he got lots of love so that made it a little easier.

I just realized I didn’t get any pictures – which sucks.  I was so surprised by his sickness it totally threw me off.  Of course the Grandma’s were quick to point out this will happen all the time, usually on holidays or other special occasions so I should get used to it…..great!

Now I need to get my butt in gear and get the house decorated for Christmas!  We don’t have a lot of space for a big tree, and it’s probably better that we don’t have that kind of temptation around the house for monkey.  The last few years I’ve been getting a little Charlie Brown tree.  But daddy says I have to wait to get it or it will dry out before Xmas.  Of course I don’t think he realizes that the trees they’re selling now will probably be the same trees they’re selling a week from now so it will end up drying out before Xmas no matter how long we wait!!!  So maybe I won’t listen to him and I’ll pick one up this weekend 🙂  Christmas just feels more real once the tree is up.  I never did understand how some people wait until Christmas eve to put one up……that’s just cutting it too close for me.

I’ve started addressing the xmas cards – I did two versions because I’m a lunatic – I addressed the first set.  Now the new set that arrived today will go to all the people I hadn’t gotten to yet.  I’ll get to scanning and posting them at a later date.  Of course now I wish I had waited to order cards cause we took the little nugget to visit Santa at Roosevelt Field yesterday and they took a GREAT picture of him and Santa.

I made some tweaks in Adobe Lightroom and came up with this…..which would have made for the best Xmas card!!!!!

Oh well – rookie mistake.  Next year I’ll wait to see how Santa pic comes out before I make my cards……..

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to meeeeeeeeee…..Happy Birthday to me 🙂

That’s right. Today is my birthday.  I am finally 1 years old.  Mommy and Daddy had a big party planned for me – it’s sesame street themed – cause I love watching Sesame Street in the morning before school.  I like to watch Elmo and Murray and Abby and Big Bird.

That’s me with the giant Elmo balloon.  My cousin Isabella really loved playing with him, see….

Aunt Victoria and Aunt Gen did paintings on everyone – they were really good at it.  Here’s Meghan, my neighbor from across the street, she got Elmo and Cookie on her hands.


Here is Grandma Angie with the cake she made for me.

And here are the cupcakes mommy made…

There will be more pictures – but this is all mommy had time to post for now 🙂  Thanks everybody for hanging out with me this last year.  Mommy says she’s gonna keep my blog going so you can still see how I’m growing.  There might be some changes though.  Instead of posting a picture for every day she’ll probably do it a little differently.  And she’s probably going to take over writing duties.  I’ve got so many things to do, you know – tearing every book of my bookshelf, playing with my toys, growing teeth, eating puffs – it’s hard to keep up my blog for every day of the year.  So like I said, it will be different but it’s still going to be here so make sure you check in from time to time.
