Feeling Strong Now!

I think my mom is confused about my crawling technique. I hear her telling people that I'm definitely crawling because I'm all over the place, but it's not so much the standard on-your-knees crawl, it's more of a military-style crawl. She knows I can do that knee thing because I sometimes fake her and daddy out and do three or four knee crawls. There's just something about pulling all my weight with my arms while sliding on my belly that just really appeals to me. I've been doing it for months now and before you know it I'll be walking - so why bother switching it up now? Check me out (and turn your volume up.)

Happy Birthday G-man!

We just celebrated my cousin Grady's 1st birthday! It was so much fun.
Aunt JJ's birthday is the day after Grady's (Nov. 28th and 29th). Aunt JJ is in China so we celebrated early.

Then we all celebrated Thanksgiving the next day at Aunt JJ's and Uncle Peter's house. My Grandma Helen and Ed and my Nonna were all there!! Mom is still thinking about the sweet potato pie. She says it was delish, but still not as good as Grandmas.

Did you know the average American consumes 5000 calories on Thanksgiving?

yo yo yo baby pop yeah you come here give me a kiss

Kissing Bandit, Play-a, 2-timer, Loverboy - call me what you want - that's OK. There's so many cute ladies all around and only one T-man. I'm just not afraid to spread the love.That's me kissing Maddy (left) just a few hours after Noa (right). Mommy says I'm so sweet, but she's wondering how long it's cool for me to kiss all the girls. I don't think dad is too worried though. When he read Baby Noa's blog about my kiss he said.."that's my boy!"

Look out Phelps!

I started training on Saturday mornings with my future team USA. In just a few weeks I'm doing the hokie pokie, the wheels on the bus and even the motor boat motor boat song where we blow bubbles! Despite some apprehension from my coach and dad, I put my head under water! OK so he held my nose, but that's ok - mom still holds her nose when she goes under. (oops I wasn't supposed to tell anyone).

Mom's bedtime book

I'm reading my mom a bedtime book. We take turns. I try and get her to taste the pages with me, but she says she's saving her appetite for her skinny cows. Oprah's even on the skinny cow kick now. We started to go to story time at Barnes and Noble where this man who looks like Chris Elliot, remember that old sitcom 'Get a life'. Anyone? Well, you know him from 'Something About Mary', anyway he reads to us and he sings and let's us yell out animal sounds. I'm not quite there yet, but I laugh when the moms start chirping and oinking. Good stuff.

Mann oh Mann!!

I had some weekend! My Aunt Jenny came to New York to run the Marathon. She's an incredible runner. This was her 12th marathon!! SO I got to hang out with my 3 cousins (The Mann Family); Reuben, Matthew (the one w/ that crazy hair) and Ilyssa. We all played at baby Riley's house in Chappaqua. No Bill or Hill sighting unfortunately.

My Uncle Bruce likes playing this game where we touch foreheads and laugh.
I hope he doesn't do that with his patients, but then again they say laughter is the best medicine -maybe that's what he does to make them better. Hmm I can totally be a dr. one day too..

You can see all the pictures of my day with the Manns and Grandma here. There are also two shots of the amazing view from our apartment. The sky was all shades of orange.
