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?
Elk!
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,

My parents are freaking out...

About moving to somewhere called Seattle? I don't know what all the fuss is about, but they keep dancing and screaming a lot and stuff. Maybe it's a giant toy store or something. Only time will tell.

In any case, I wanted to share with you some new skillz my parents recently became aware of.

Shave and a

Haircut!!! Two bits.


The haircut was pretty stressful, so I'm having a relaxing beer. Just kidding! It's empty, of course.




And here's a little pre-haircut dance Dad and I did this morning:

Hello glorious readers! I thought it was high time for an update on how I've been spending my wintertime in Michigan.

Mamoo and Pops sent me some play-silks! Mama made me some funny hats for this first installment of Stuff On My Head.

'Sup?
Cheese!
They're also great for building forts! Here I'm hidin' out with my buddies!
Mama made me some play-d'oh!
Here I'm having a very studious diaper change.
This is how I use this thing, right?
No? How about this?
Still not right? Do I just sit here? No? I'll have to keep working on it and get back to you.

We went to Phoenix on vacation!
There were lizards!
Flowers to smell!
Walks to take! Sometimes with mama:

Sometimes "self," as I like to say.By the end I packed myself, ready to go.

Our kitty went bye-bye forever. Here's us having one last snuggle.


Back to Stuff On My Head, Part II:
Sometimes I make some silly faces. This is the "llama llama mad at mama face," from one of my favorite books!
This is my "Joe Cool" face.

We're not sure what to call this, but maybe my "Whatchootalkin'boutWillis?" face.This is my "I love broccoli and pasta" face.
And my "Oh man! Black bean burgers AGAIN, mom?" face.
Did someone need to speak to an important executive?
Excuse me, I have to take this call.

My newest favorite dance. I predict it will be sweeping the nation shortly, macarena style!

I run like the wind and dance like a penguin.



And finally, I sing you alllll to sleeeeeep.....


Until next time, I remain your humble adorable toddler,
