When we found out that Mommy was going to have a baby, Ms. Jen suggested that Mommy borrow her maternity clothes. Mommy is so thankful! ("Such cute stuff!" Mommy says.) I'm thankful, too, because this tub that held Ms. Jen's clothes is a perfect place to snuggle in and rest.
Here are some pictures of our time in the mountains with Uncle Garth and Aunt Kathy. Ooops, we didn't mean for the pictures to turn out so big, but Mommy doesn't want to go back and redo them now...so please bear with us.
Today, Mommy and Daddy went to the doctor to get a picture of our baby. When Mommy came home, she wondered if I would like to see the picture. I was having too much fun with Samantha and was not interested. Even though this blog is mostly about me, Mommy thought my readers would be interested in the baby's picture, so here it is!
"Did we bring Tikki-Tikki Tembo back to the library?" [I'm pretty sure we had this one about a year ago.] "And did we bring Bear and the Big Blue House back to the library? And did we bring the crane book back to the library? We had the crane book when I was two. We had the crane book when I was two awhile ago."
Here are some things that I say now that my parents will miss someday:
One thing I didn't tell you about my fish that I won at the carnival is that when it came time to name them, I told Mommy that they should be named Little Fishy and Little Fishy. Mommy convinced me to choose a different name for my second fish, which is how it came to be named Fish Fish. And we all know what happened to Little Fishy.
When Mommy and I go to Target, we usually walk through the toy section. Lately, my favorite thing has been giving hugs to Schleich animals. This week, we noticed that Target is already putting out extra toys for Christmas. Amazing. Unfortunately, where my blue wooden play kitchen was last year, there's a pink one in its place! It's a nice kitchen and everything, but as you know, there are probably no little boys in the world who will get that kitchen for Christmas. Grandparents are kitchen-givers, I think, and I can't think of any grandparents who would give a pink kitchen to a boy. Sorry, little buddies, kitchens are just for girls this year! You can come to my house and cook in my blue kitchen.
Almost a month ago, I won two little fish here. We keep forgetting to blog about them.
1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.
4) Tag 6 other blogger's by linking to them.
5) Go to each person's blog and leave a comment that lets them know they've been tagged.
For a really, really long time, I've been praying that God would send a baby to our family.
Not very long ago, Daddy reminded me of the story of Abraham and Sarah. They prayed and prayed for a baby. And then, even though they were very old, God surprised them with a baby. If you don't know the story, you can read it right here in my Storybook Bible.
On Friday, Daddy had his 34th birthday. I helped him celebrate, and so did the friends at his work, and so did family and other friends. Everybody helped Daddy have a great birthday. Luckily, he brought home his balloons so that I could play with them. Here I am, first thing in the morning, wearing my PJs.
On Saturday, my dad had the whole day off, which is rare for his busy season. So, we decided to get out of town for the day and have some adventures! We even put on pants, jackets, and tennis shoes. I hadn't worn regular shoes in such a long time that I didn't realize mine were too small. I got to wear new ones in a bigger size that had been waiting in my closet.
