Overwhelming excitement

Did you ever love trains so much you exhausted yourself just watching them?

Because I've been there.

The awesome part is they have openings on both sides, so you get to go through them twice before you start over again.

That bear again

Mom and Dad missed my 33-month birthday celebration last week (nice work, guys) but they did remember  to take another picture with the big bear. To refresh your memory, here's me this time last year:

And here I am six months ago...

And here I am today:

I think I've really perfected the cute-leaning-head pose now.

For all my adoring fans out there, here's a little behind-the-scenes featurette of how we put that latest bear picture together (you're gonna want to turn the volume way down.)

Thanksgiving, part 1 and 2

I got to have two Thanksgivings this year -- first, I got a giant feast at daycare on Wednesday, which was awesome. Here's a list of what I ate.

Then I got to have an even bigger Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday with Pop and Grandmom and a bunch of other family members. There weren't as many kids at that party, but there still were cupcakes.

Aunt Olga (across the table) was trying to teach me how to steal a second cupcake, but Mom made her stop. She's pretty smart -- I've gotta hang out with her more often.

Hope everybody had as much to eat this week as I did!

Funnest playground ride ever

No question, there's one playground ride that beats all the rest. I could play on here for hours.

Dad's note: Actually, he did play on there for about 20 minutes straight...

Tommy's birthday party

Tommy's turning one-year-old soon, so we headed up to Aunt Beth's house to have an early party for him. We had a blast.

The only problem was that Grandmom only has one lap, so I had to share with him. Luckily, Great Aunt Jeanne was there to help too.

I really feel like these playground ages are more of a suggestion than a rule.

New bed, sorta

I let Mom and Dad know this weekend that I was getting a little too big for my crib, so they got me a new one. It looks a lot like my old crib, but without that fourth wall.

Now all I gotta do is convince them to let me jump on this one.

Haircut time again?

Seriously? Why can I just grow my hair long like Dad did?

Coin catalogs

These Dr. Suess stories are nice and all, but looking at the grading values on Liberty Head dollars is much more stimulating.

Voter fraud

You'd be surprised what you can get away with when you're cute. Not only did I vote today, I voted twice.

But I cast a ballot for each guy, just to be fair. I just wanted the stickers.

Cross-training in Autumn

Remember that leaf-stomping post a few weeks back? A lot of people assume that was just something I did for a laugh, but it's actually the culmination of hours upon hours of intense outdoor workouts I complete every month. Here's a look at me building up my leaf-battling stamina over the weekend:

Dad's note: He really did want to do this for hours this weekend. Just back and forth, back and forth, then pause for me to re-rake the pile.
