A week of recovery

Last week was a CRAZY busy week for me so this week mommy and I are trying to take it easy and rest up!! I took my first ride in my birthday Radio Flyer wagon with mommy and daddy and I'm pretty sure I'm a fan!!! I love walks no matter the method, but riding solo in my wagon made me feel like a big boy... plus my Mickey Mouse balloon came along for the ride so it was basically perfect :)

All ready

Yeah it's bright I need a hat guys

Hmmm, so this is how the big boys do it huh?

Mommy and daddy and I went to see Thomas the Train on Sunday but honestly mommy and daddy were pretty disappointed. I'm always happy when we're all together as a family so it doesn't matter to me what we do, and the actual Thomas the Train was PRETTY cool! But the train ride was really boring and slow and there wasn't much to look at, and the rest of the place was more like a really bad carnival than a Thomas the Train fun day.... still, I got to ride my first tram and my first real train, so all in all it was a success :)

I'm READY!!!

Waiting on the tram

Hi mommy

Who knew there was a Gold Coast Railroad Museum

Waiting for daddy to get us some pizza

How do I look in this hat mommy, be honest

So this is what a train looks like huh?

What is this window doing in my way?

I'll ride with daddy first

Ok mommy's turn

I can't see mommy!!!

Ahhh, that's better!

See anything good?

Hmmm, interesting...

Can I go back to daddy now?

Thank you!!

What is this daddy, a watch?

How interesting, what does it do?

Alright moving on, these look interesting...

The boring view haha

No wonder I found my shoes more interesting

Whoa that's a big train

Posing for pics...

...and some more

There's Thomas behind us

And a cool John Deere tractor

More Thomas

In other news, I really like sitting in the activity garden my Aunt Kieran sent down to me... mommy likes to put it outside in the afternoons so we can play and get fresh air...

Hi mom

You wanna come in too?

TOO BAD, you're too big!!

I went to the GI doctor with mommy today... he says I weigh 18 lbs, 13 oz! WOW I really am a chunky monkey! I gained 6 oz in a week, go me! He printed my growth chart for mommy and daddy to hang up, he was so proud he thought we should show that bad boy off!!! He said I can start eating baby food along with the rice cereal mommy's been giving me... not that it makes a difference to me since it goes straight into my belly but hey, at least my tummy will enjoy some yummy new food :)

Superstar ME!!

Nothing much else to tell.... apparently I have daddy's allergies because I'm going on three straight weeks of snotty boogers and a choked up throat!! My mornings have become miserable as I wake up and can't breathe, then proceed to choke and gag on all the snot that leaks into my throat. I haven't really wanted anything in my mouth, at ALL, lately because of the snot so speech therapy is kind of a drag. Mommy thinks that having a break from therapy sometimes, though, does the body good... I took most of last week off with my birthday and Jackson celebrations, so come Saturday when we finally had some time to play in my playroom area I decided to show off a little by doing some rolling around on my own. I'm really starting to get the hang of this!! I can roll off my back onto my belly in either direction and from my belly onto my back REALLY good going one way and most of the time going the other... mommy keeps putting my favorite toys JUST out of my reach so I have to roll to reach them... I keep telling her that's NOT nice but she has no sympathy sigh.

Mommy's also figured out my secret love for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I was careful not to let her know how much I like him for fear she'd use him in one of her therapeutic, get me to work harder if I want to see him ploys.... unfortunately I just can't contain my smile when Mickey comes out to ask me if I want to go inside his clubhouse.... of COURSE I DO!!! And that hot-dog dance they all do at the end... I just want to dance and since with them!! Sooo now mommy makes me lay on the bouncy ball on my belly and push up on my arms in order to see Mickey..... it's ok though, now that she knows I like him she puts him on for me whenever she can :) 

Mickey mouse from my high chair...

I even got daddy hooked....

Yep, we're both hooked!!

  1. Sebastian loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse too! They have DVDs on it. He especially loves all the musical parts...like the opening song and the HOTDOG dance...he goes running towards the TV every time he hears it come on!
