Mastering utensils

Yea, dinner!

Wait! What's this? Daddy gave me a grown up fork?

I can do this...I am a big girl, after all!

Ah, my next victim: the baked potato!

I use the stab and grab technique...

Yes, I have battled the grown up fork and I am victorious!

New seating arrangements

What the heck is this contraption?
Oh please! What happened to my swing? My bouncy chair?
Feeling kind of wobbly.
Change is good I hear, but...
I feel so out of my comfort zone...
I guess I'll just have to roll with it...

That face!

Caught in the act

What's all over Tegan's face?
Yes, MomMom, I got into the M&Ms that are supposed to be for my potty training...
and boy were they good!

Sawyer Video

Apparently, Sawyer likes to hear Monkey: he's so cute when he coos!

Coming attractions!

I spend most days watching videos with Tegan.
I like Elmo, Nemo, Bolt, The Wiggles and even Barney!
But Strawberry shortcake, not so much...
But I'm confident MomMom will recognize my superior intelligence and purchase a couple of Thomas the Tank Engine videos!

Happy, happy Mommy!


MomMom is decorating for Halloween and the house smells really good from her McIntosh candles!
Everyone is really excited, Tegan is going to be a fairy and I'm going to be a hotdog!

Uh oh, they're not trying to get rid of me are they?

Happy 20th Birthday Shannon!

I looked on the shelves, but could not find
a card to express my heart and my mind
you're just too unique in every way
so I'm writing to you on your twentieth birthday
Where to begin, to let you know,
how I've loved every minute of watching you grow,
from pocohontas to piercings, from lipgloss to cologne
From watching my baby, to watching you have your own
There's been good times and bad times, happy and sad
I wouldn't trade one second of the time that we've had
Friday night pizza and Claires at the mall
Too many good memories to count them all
But what I am fond of the most, is the bond that we share
Sticking together and up for each other, a friendship so rare
between a Mother and daughter, so what's left to say
except I love you so deeply, in every possible way.

Happy 20th Birthday!

True colors!

Yea, I finally get to color again!
MomMom doesn't like to give me crayons cuz she says I don't color, I eat them...Well, I'll just show her!
Ha! How many babies can color with two crayons at once?
I'll prove that I can really color!
I can't take it! One small, teensie weensy bite!

Sticker Shock!

It's always a good day when the mail comes and there is some advertisement with stickers!
Oh such skill meticulously peeling each one off the paper and finding the perfect spot to stick it
She even says "sticka"!

The entertainer

Life's been good to me so far...
Like, here I am saying 'Goo'.
Boy, they sure do eat that stuff up!
In fact, any cute noise I make sends them in a tizzy and the old lady runs for her camera!
The Sawyer Jacob Levi Grimm show is on and all eyes are on me! I am such a super star!
Nothing left to do, but kick back and relax!

MomMom's Pumpkin Patch

I'm going to pick pumpkins from the garden
Gotta stop and picks some dandelions.
What weeds are to us, become magical to children!
Pumpkin picking is fun! Thanks for growing them, MomMom!
This one's a beaut!
Look at all my pumpkins!
Hey, what's this?
You can't be in my pumpkin wagon!
Good, I've purged all those non-pumpkin veggies!
Now I'm good to go!
Any water in here?
I have to wash these pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns!
It just doesn't feel like fall yet, Oh well...
There's always the big pumpkin patch with Mommy and Daddy...
It was a wonderful day in MomMom's pumpkin patch!
