Visit from Mamamma and Papa

My Mamamma and Papa came to visit over Thanksgiving to see me before the baby ("my" baby) comes. We had such busy days! Here are some of the things we did:

We read a lot of books.....

We went to Briar Bush Nature Center to play in the woods.....

My mamamma and papa got me a table to put in my playroom, and I helped put it together before testing it out by making pies. (Thanks Ciara for the homemade baking set!)

We went to a playground, and there were so many friends there!

I gave daddy massages and asked mama to give me one. Other than that, we generally just played around.

Lots of fun. I will miss my mamamma and papa. I think they will miss me, too.

Potluck Fun

There was a potluck at my house today, and friends came over! Malcolm came, my friend Isabelle (who went with me to Briar Bush Nature Center before), Phoenix who I haven't seen in too long and a new friend named Mason who will be 1 soon but was walking and rocking with the rest of us.

Before everyone got there, Malcolm and I played around. We tried pushing each other in the baby stroller:

We ate lots of good food -- Malcolm and I helped make it and eat it!

I didn't nap. That meant I was all kinds of worked up. We all danced around at one point. There was a good deal of dancing going on.

I had such a wonderful time hanging out with friends. By 8, though, we were all worn out and ready for bed. It was a great end to a great day!

My Second Birthday

Today, I am two years old! My daddy made me birthday smoothie and oatmeal. I also got to go play in the woods. I said hello to the squirrels and the water and the leaves. I said goodbye, too. I met a new friend there. I had been there before and brought my rainboots for water, but he didn't have his so he got wet. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful time.

New Carseat

I can now face forwards. Yup. I'm a big girl. My mamamma and papa got me those balloons and a new carseat. (The new baby will be taking my old one.) Here's some photos of me in my new carseat. I know the latch needs to be up higher, but still...check me out!

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 2 years old. This morning there was a knock on the door, my daddy answered, and in came balloons! Balloons for me! "Bayoons!" I shrieked. I ran all about with my balloons. Here is a taste that daddy captured:

Out in the Snow

It snowed the other day. In October! I was so excited to have rainboots and a raincoat to go out and play. I didn't expect it to be so cold though, snow. I helped my mama clear off the car, and my fingers got so cold! We got to the farmers' market just as the last folks were leaving. I wasn't thrilled to be out in the cold damp, but I still liked my boots.

I Like to Cook

I like to help around the house. Cooking is one of my favorites. Sometimes I don't want to stay for too long, but sometimes I like to help with each step. Recently, I helped prep some delicata squash for roasting.

Then I got some broccoli ready for a casserole.

After that, my mama decided cutting butter was a great opportunity for me to practice cutting. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while now. It was fun to cut the butter, but it's hard not to want to taste it....

Helping Daddy Sweep

My daddy was sweeping the kitchen. I realized he didn't have the dustpan. I told daddy I would go get it. I went and got it and held it down for him. I helped daddy sweep! He was so grateful and happy.
