Swimming in the fountain [May. 29th, 2007|07:34 pm]
Mom took me to swim at the fountain again today. It was the perfect way to cool off on such a hot, humid day. I like this weather, but to be honest, it would be better suited to August.

Haircut [May. 29th, 2007|02:30 pm]
I told mom that I thought I was starting to look a little like Jennifer Aniston, so she gave me a haircut.

Here I am before:

And here I am today:

Quite an improvement, if I do say so myself. As hard as I try to ignore it, it really grates on my nerves when people ask my mom, "Oh, how old is SHE?"

More Birthday! [May. 26th, 2007|11:27 pm]
Fortunately, Uncle Dave took some pictures of my birthday party with his camera, so I have some real pictures marking the historic event, rather than just my mom's blurry cell phone shots.

I have cake on my face and bubbles in my hand. Bliss!

Baby Saffy with her mom and dad and my dad:

Ahh, more fun here -- presents galore.

I thought it would be a good idea to throw my new football to Alex.

I know it's a little silly, because not every football player falls down when they make a touchdown, but since the really dramatic and exciting players do, I do, too:

Summer fun [May. 26th, 2007|11:07 pm]
Today I got to use the new sprinker I got for my birthday. At first I was confused by the gift, but now that Mom has showed me how it works, I am amazed by it's brilliance and forethought. Mom set it up next to my pool, which we got out for the first time this year. I was able to stay in it until my skin got wrinkly; in fact, I would have stayed in longer, but Mom made me get out to come inside and eat lunch. She tells me I may be able to do it again tomorrow.

My birthday! [May. 26th, 2007|11:02 pm]
Yesterday I had a birthday party, and it was one of the best things I've ever done. It was a strange day. I didn't see Mom all day (I heard Dad mention something about "orientation."), and then my Noma woke me up from my nap and took me to my favorite park. When I got there, I saw my mom and what she had been up to! There was a banner that said "Happy Birthday" and had pictures of Thomas the Tank Engine on it, and several colorful balloons and a few streamers as well. Not only that, but most of my favorite people were there, too. My great friends Alex, Ellie, Laura, Marta, Mack, Greg, and Maylie came, and also many of my favorite babies were there, too -- Baby Austin, Baby Brinn, Baby Lucas, Baby Saffron, and Baby Mitch all attended. My Uncle Dave was there, and brought me a tent with Lightning McQueen on it. laserkitty, thinksnow and mayna were there, along with their families, and lots of people from church came, too. It was quite a party.

I was able to play in the park for quite some time. My cousin Dani followed me around to make sure I didn't eat any sand, and she was shocked when I told her I was allowed to go down the big slide by myself. My Mom confirmed it for her, and she finally let me go. Dani's fun, but sometimes she can be a real killjoy. Especially with the sand thing. Fortunately, I didn't actually need to eat any sand, since Uncle Dave, Dad, and Grumpy were cooking up my favorite on the grill -- hot dogs! We ate, and then I got to open presents. SO MANY PRESENTS! I could hardly contain myself. I got some fantastic books from Grandma and Grandpa and laserkitty, a cozy Thomas blanket, lots of toys and things related to Thomas, a picture of me at the zoo, a tunnel to crawl through...even some temporary tattoos! I declared, "Oh BOY!" and couldn't keep myself from taking a break from opening gifts and making a touchdown when I got an OSU football.

Unfortunately, mom forgot to bring her camera in all the excitement, so she had to take some pictures with her phone. I was too excited to even give her my fake smile.

After the presents, mom brought out a cake. It had Thomas on it too!! And candles. I blew and blew, and finally the candles went out. Then I got to eat a whole piece, all on my own. After the cake, I blew some bubbles and played some more. While exhausting, the party was some of the best fun I've ever had. And now I'm TWO!

Big disappointment turns into tons of fun! [May. 26th, 2007|10:39 pm]
My parents disappointed me for the first time last week. I mean, mom's disappointed me before in the sense that she doesn't ever allow me to have soda, and she keeps me from learning to fly from the loft, but this one was a terrible thing to do to a child. She promised me that I could go swimming, which is currently my most favorite activity to participate in. My dad was going to take me at the Community Center, after he finished working out. She took me over and my dad put on my swim diaper and trunks and took me out to the pool. Just as we were walking onto the deck, the lifeguard blew his whistle and said something about clearing the pool. And then Dad took me right back out of there, without even letting me put my feet in the water or go down the slide one time. Let me tell you, I immediately let him know how disappointed I was, but nothing could dissuade him. He took me to mom, who I thought would be able to change his mind, but she didn't take me in either. I couldn't believe it. Mom looked like she might cry too, so I have no idea why she didn't just take me back. To add insult to injury, they took me out and put me in my car seat. EGADS! They told me we were going somewhere, but I didn't understand what they were talking about, and let them know in no uncertain terms that I expected them to keep their promise. Eventually, the car stopped, and I let up on my castigation for a moment, because I saw a large fountain out of the corner of my eye. Imagine my surprise and delight when they allowed me to go and play in it! It was just as good as swimming, and I soon forgot all about the slide at the community center. It turned out to be quite a evening after all!

More zoo... [May. 6th, 2007|09:38 am]
I forgot to put this picture of me with a goat up on the last post. I know, how could I? So here it is:

Mom said the goat had a baby goat inside of it's tummy, but I couldn't see it. I think the goat must have just been too fat.

The zoo! [May. 6th, 2007|09:35 am]
We went to the zoo on Friday. Mom got me some new Spiderman sunglasses, which I absolutely love, and I got to wear them for the first time.

I thought I would pose by this tree.

Then we went to see the tiger, which is my absolute favorite animal. Unfortunately, both the lion and the tiger were taking naps. I like it best when they're walking around. Then we saw the elephants. The baby elephant was nursing, and it reminded me to tell my mom that I wanted to nurse. For some reason, she refused. She did offer to fill my car cup up with water at the drinking fountain, though, which I had to settle for.

The elephants have a drum near them that I like to play, so I took a little time to try it out.

My mom let me ride on the train for the first time. It was so fantastic. She made the mistake of trying to eat lunch near the train before we'd gotten to ride. Once I'd seen it, the train was the only thing I could think of.

We saw this monkey swinging while carrying her baby, and I told mom I wanted her to try that.

Once again, she refused. I think old age must be getting to her. Or maybe it's the fact that I weigh 30 lbs. now. She keeps reminding me of it when I want her to pick me up.

Wild hair! [May. 6th, 2007|09:13 am]
Mom took me to the park this week. It was plenty fun, especially trying to climb on things my mom says are for big kids. The slide was fantastic, mostly because the static electricity I generated made my hair stand on end. I also like to make a "mess" by piling wood chips on the bottom of the slide. I tried to trick my mom into sliding into them, but she figured out what I was doing. I myself love sliding into the mess; I don't know why anyone wouldn't.

Dr. Suess [Mar. 30th, 2007|08:50 am]
I adores Green Eggs and Ham. Grandma and Grandpa got it for me for Christmas, and it is a great read. Mom thinks it is an amazingly long book, especially when she's already read it 4 times in one day. But I have taken it to a new level, yelling "YUMMY!" when the green eggs and ham appear and then yelling "YES!" to every question, along with violent interaction with the pictures. So the story goes something like this:

Sam-I-Am:"Would you eat them in a box?"
Me: "YES!"
Sam-I-Am: "Would you eat them with a fox?"
Me: "YES! FOX!" *pokes fox so hard the book falls out of Mom's hands*
Sam-I-Am: "Would you eat them on a train?"
Me: "YES! Choo-Choo!"
Sam-I-Am: "Would you eat them in the rain?"
Me: "YES!"
Sam-I-Am:"Would you eat them in the dark?"
Me: "YES! Light Off!"
Sam-I-Am: "Would you eat them on a boat?"
Me: "Yes! SWIMMING!!" *pokes book out of Mom's hands again*

Sam-I-Am: "Try them, try them and you may!"
Jack: "YUMMY!"

She thinks she's putting one over me by skipping some of the diatribes the protagonist enters into, in order to express his displeasure at being offered green eggs and ham. I've let it slide so far, but someday I'm going to let on that I've figured out her tricks, and that will be the end of that.
