October Goodness

Cheese!No, I'm not lazy! Just very, very efficient. I just wanted to wait until October was over until I updated again. Yeah, that's it!

September and October were very busy around here. We had lots of grandparents visiting!

First Mimi and Pop came to town. We had a blast at Greenfield Village and walking around town. And swinging!
Then Grandmoms and Grandpops came visiting. We went all over, to Grand Rapids and to Holland, MI where they have a funny Dutch Village.

This giant bird tried to fly away with me, but Pops saved me.

Grandmoms helped me ride this horse (or as I like to call them "eh-yews, " you know, like the sound of a neigh!)Here's me riding another eh-yew. I love the ponies!I tried to pack myself into Grandmoms's luggage, but they caught me at security.The weather has finally started to get colder, so I've been wearing all kinds of new clothes. And shoes! Check out my Chuck Taylors that my cousin Evan picked out for me! They are my favorite-est shoes of all time, and they make me run real fast!
We've also been going on lots of nice walks in the woods lately.

Shadow dancing!

Smelling the "flowers."

Here's a little video of how we walk through the woods together:

One day we went to a pumpkin patch and played!

Of course, we've been living it up indoors as well.

Like diapering my monkey!
I call this one "flour power."
This is called the "I love tractors" scream.
And this series I call Bucking Bronco:

I'm an adrenaline junky. Here's me riding my eh-yew that Mimi and Pop gave me! I ride him every day, but he still doesn't have a name.
Here's me cooking in my new kitchen from Grandmoms and Grandpops!

And here is what we call the Mittened Musician.

But I know that the real moment you've all been waiting for is HALLOWEEN! As you can see, I was a froggy.

You didn't know that frogs rode ponies?!? Mama and Dada even took me trick or treating, and let me have just a teeny bit of candy. It changed my life.

Mmmmm, sugar coma....Well, that's all for now, peeps. I'll be back soon to post the 4 billion photos that grandmoms and grandpops took during their visit. A baby can only post so many pictures at a time!

Be cool.

Your humble, adorable toddler,

Late Summer Update

Hello Loyal Readers!

Did you miss me?

I'm here to update you on my latest late summer activities. Hope you enjoy!

I got to pretend to drive a Real. Live. Tractor. Seriously, it was the best!
We went to this really cool sculpture park in Grand Rapids. There was a whole Kiddie village there! This is me checking out the tree house.
I'm just taking a break from tree climbing in this baby-sized chair in my brand new hat that I don't immediately rip off my head as soon as mama puts it on me.
Unbeknownst to me, I fell asleep on our bike ride home from the farmer's market one Saturday. Mama and dada made me post this one; I think it's rather embarrassing.Here's me riding a pony at the Michigan State Fair!
I also checked out this funky turkey a little later in the day.This is what happens when mamas and dadas are too involved in their conversations to realize that I'm redecorating dada's keyboard. You'd think I had killed the cat, they were so mad. Jeez, I was just trying to apply the principles of feng shui.

I was getting into my cottage cheese here. If it's good in your mouth, that means it's good on your face and in your hair, right?
On Labor Day, I got to hang out with my friend Ramona (and mama and dada got to hang out with her parents, Amy and Ethan). It was super fun! Here's us in her pool.
Checkin' out the sandbox...
And of course, sampling the fine sand in said sand box.

Last but not least, I hope you enjoy this video clip of me sitting in the kitchen drawer. It literally speaks for itself.

Until next time, I remain your humble adorable toddler,
Silas T.

Water Park!

What's up, loyal readers? I'm just driving. It's one of my new favorite activities. I can even get the key in the ignition. Mama and Dada better watch out, because pretty soon I'm blowin' this popstand!

Today I got behind the wheel and started to drive myself to this new spray park that I heard about. Mama quickly took over for me, but hey, my goal was accomplished, right?
Whoa, this waterpark is crazy!

Holy cow, how does one get through this?
Hmmmm....maybe my hand can help....Oh, what the heck? I'm goin' for it!

I am triumphant!Splashing is the best.
It's chilly though! Ready to go home for some dinner.
At dinner, I wonder how I can get my couscous into my sippycup straw....
I hear a voice telling me, "Use the force, Luke." I'm not sure who Luke is, but it seems like good advice. It works!
Later on I decide to take a break in the laundry basket. Aaah. So comfy!
Dada decided to try these glasses on me. What a geek!
Well, that's all I've got time for today. I've got to go get this onion out of my hair. It was my performance art piece of the day, but I know that Mama and Dada aren't going to get it. They're sooooo literal. Sigh.

Until next time, I remain your humble adorable toddler,
Silas T.
