The Many Costumes of Silas

Silas is a BIG fan of dress-up lately. So we thought we'd share some of his best costumes!

Notice the awesome sparkly red shoes!


And then when he woke up from nap on Halloween Day, he decided that he wanted to be.....a BUTTERFLY.

Chad and I keep talking about taking some shots of my GINORMOUS baby belly...someday we will, I swear.

Ok, in utero, anyway.

Yes, Silas is expecting a little brother sometime in February 2010. Here's photographic evidence. :)

Yes, we are slackers.

Yeah, it's been a while. I've been busy, what do you want from me!?

I've got some sweet new skillz.
We had a visit from Evan and Uncle Paul - it was totally sweet.
Evan and I rock the playdoh mustaches!
I show Evan some of my trademarked dance moves...
And play him my latest hit (You Are My Sunshine).
We also visited some farms and got to go on a hayride...
And the nice farmer let me DRIVE THE TRACTOR!!!!
And no trip to a farm is complete without a ride on the rooster!
I'm really digging Seattle. We get to go throw rocks in Puget Sound all the time. Note my post-throw kick, it's very important for balance.And there are lots of great swing-slides (aka "playgrounds").

There's tons of cool hikes nearby, too. Sometimes I ride in style...
but mostly mama and dada have to chase me.
We carved a pumpkin for Halloween that came all the way from Idaho (thanks, Pop!)
I've also taken up bowling.
I pretty much rock!Don't ever disrupt my artistic flow, man.

Christmas was a blast! I got to hand out all the presents. Most of them were for me.
Pops got this weird Slanket thing. He likes to pretend he's the Pope when he wears it.
Here's Papa an Grandmama, Mamoo, Mama, Me and Pops on Christmas
And then Papa, Grandmama, Mama, Me and Dada for good measure.And now, without further ado, it's our readers' Number One Favorite Blog Feature:

Stuff On My Head!!!!

Motorcycle Cap!
Homemade "Los Pollitos" Helmet! (That's Baby Chicks in Spanish)
I'm Officer Friendly!
And Carmen Miranda!
I'm appalled that you want to change my diaper!
And scandalized that you think I need a bib.
Another homemade gem...

ROAR!!! I'm a happy scary lion!
And sometimes I even get Mamoo and Mama to join in on the fun.And that's all I've got for you today! Hope you've enjoyed catching up with me!

The Summer 2008 Uber-Post!

Are you guys giving me the stink-eye for being gone so long? Let me just ask you a few questions.

Have you guys ever been to Seattle? Or moved? Holy cow, it keeps you busy! We have a new house, we had to move all our stuff in (boxes! rock!) and then we had to explore our cool new city! It's so cool! Did I mention cool? It's totally cool. I have to wear galoshes a lot though (pictured above...and below) because it rains here. A LOT.

Without further ado, here are some snaps of stuff I've been up to for the past oh, say, 3 1/2 months. Enjoy!

Let's start off with the most important event of the last few months...My 2nd BIRTHDAY!

Mama and Dada were a little too "helpful" during their candle-blowing demo...they blew all my dang candles out! Mama thought this was hilarious! And embarrassing. Grown-ups are weird.
In any case, the cake was deeeee-licious!
A little video interlude that I like to call, "Smiling Lessons."

Have y'all met my lady, Mrs. B? That's Mrs. Beasley to you.

Don't we look super-fly together? Some other things I've been showing love lately? The trees of the fabulous Pacific Northwest.

We even went on a whole tree-hugging camping adventure in the Olympic Peninsula. It was so fun!

What's that I see in my binoculars?
They made it look so tasty, I decided to give "meadow" a try...
Tastes like carrots (this is a direct quote).

On a hike to look for...
More trees to hug!
Mine's cuter!
Peek-a-boo tree!

Banana slugs are weird...and cool!
I've also been hanging with my family more - it's a lot easier to visit now, since we don't have to fly in an airplane.

Mimi and I put on our make-up together in the morning.

I figure that if it's good on my lips, it must be good for cheeks, too, right?Am I not gorgeous?!?

Grandmama and Papa and I sing a song together...I think the itsy bitsy spider.
We've also been visited by friends from Michigan!

Yay for Brooke and Nolan and Micah!

Post Snoqualmie Falls Lollipop - I earned it!
Snoqualmie Falls were cool! Did I show you guys my cool new toy? Without further ado...

And now for this episode's installment of Stuff On My Head.

Diapers on my bottom? Diapers on my head.
My cool new "red" (aka pink) sunglasses! I picked them out myself.
Safety first!

In other random news, Mama and Dada celebrated their 5 year wedding anniversary, whatever that means. All I know is that they went out for dinner and I got to eat pizza with Mamoo and Pops! Suckers!
Speaking of Mamoo and Pops...they have a new KITTY! Named Lucy! LucyFur! I can't WAIT to visit her again.
Well, I gotta go. There's so much to do in Seattle, and just not enough time to write about it all. I'm off to the wading pool now, but hopefully I'll check back in before Christmas. Ha!
Until next time, I remain your humble, adorable toddler,
Silas T.
