With you, may the force be..

Me - Yoda. It all makes perfect sense. He's 2 feet tall. I'm 2 feet tall. (give or take). He seems chill, but is remarkably speedy. Same here. Although compact, he's stronger than 30 wookies. I too, am stronger than many wookies. And we both jumble the sentence structure. For example, Yoda says: The dark side are they. Tanner says: Blues Clues I watch.



No one really knows whose taking the picture here, but that's Mikey, Maddy and Manny on their respective mommy's laps.

It's ALIVE!!!

Elmo might need someone to tell him how to get to Sesame Street because somehow he wound up in my living room!
It's so great having him - he dances, tells stories, laughs and when he falls he says "can someone help Elmo up."
When you pick him up, he says "thank you." manners I tell you. Mom said he can stay.

The Path to Yale

I started school this week! I'm thinking of majoring in Play-Doh. Maybe a minor in 21st Century Blocks. This is my secret society club house. Think of it like a Skull and Bones for the under-2 elite.

look out ladies - I've got one foot in.

Mom is lovin' this

Pure Genius


Whoever thought of attaching a little red car to the front of a shopping cart deserves major recognition. I want to meet him - actually mom thinks it might be a her. Either way, I want to give her a kiss and tell her that because of her, and mom's arsenal of snacks, I love going to the supermarket!

The House that Ruth Built




Daddy wanted to make sure I see the original Yankee Stadium -what better way than a Yankees Red Sox game? We won the game! I had my first dirty water dog, my first hot pretzel and my first and last diaper change in the gnarly women's bathroom!
This place was cool and all ..the history yadda yadda.. but I can't wait for the new stadium!

My cousin cracks me up

video
My Cousin Ilyssa, Aunt Jenny and Uncle Bruce came to Montauk to spend the week with me. We had so much fun just chillin' on the beach, eating chicken fingers and discussing the Montauk Monster. Sounds like some serious viral marketing to me. Mom and Aunt Jenny had 2 cool celeb sightings - Cynthia Nixon was in their yoga class and Luke Wilson aka: the Godfather was at the bar. I am just waiting to see Elmo - that will be huge!

Group Shot


This was the night of the big lobster bake on the beach. We had the best time. I had my first Smore! And it all made so much sense after I took a bite and made the sign language sign for "more" of those smores. Ahhh - that's where the name came from! Mommy's latest choice of words for yummy food is "deliciousness" And the whole night was full of it! I stayed up late to hang with my crew. It was so worth it.

Hangin' at the Montauket - what?

Did anyone see my towel?


Instruments are everywhere

The name of this place is called The Gig Shack. Today's special gig - TJ on the picnic table!

Mark my words

Some new things I say now:

More (I say it while I sign it)
Ah- mo = Elmo
Ah-Cado = avacato (my personal favorite food)
Apple
beebee = baby and blue bear
happy
eyes
fffffff = fan
beeach = beach
Ahht = hot
kai = could i? (at least that's the latest translation guess)

And i'll repeat basically anything - mom's really impressed.

My weekend with Henry!

It's an annual thing.. Henry & I in Montauk together. This year was so much more fun than last year. We actually kinda play together. We clap. I eat the food off his highchair. We walk in circles listening to music while babbling in our secret language.


This is called Pulling off a pink shirt

Montauk '08 baby!



I'm back at the beach and lovin' it! My new lunch is sand-coated french fries, which I wash down with ocean water from my red bucket. I could eat sand all day. Mom thinks it's gross, but she just doesn't understand some delicacies.

Walk this Way!

It's official - I walk! Just as I hit my 14th month I gained the confidence to stand up tall and put one foot in front of the other - no hands! Dad's been coaching me for this for a while now. I put all his tips together and just took off. Check out my progression...

Touch my nose

Remember the old joke Pull my Finger? Well that's out. Now we play Touch my Nose.
My cousin Reuben made it up and it makes me laugh SO hard. Look what happens when I touch his nose. Aunt Jenny thinks its funny too.

Q and T

This is me and my neighbor Q-Rich. He's on the Knicks! We were just chillin' in the hallway today. Do you think I'll be as tall as him one day?

My boy Jackson in my house!

My buddy Jackson came over to play. He's half my age, but not half my size. He's gaining on me.
Mom tried to get us to sit up next to each other for a picture, but if she's going to tell me she has cheese why would I just sit there and smile? Of course I'm going to go look for this cheese she speaks of.



Anyway, I'm psyched for summer time in the 'Tauk with you. I'm definitely peeing in your pool. That's cool right?

Rockin' my new moves

I used to only break out the bounce, but now I'm rockin' the twist... I throw in some claps and jazz hands for effect

This is how it went down..

Mom fed me my birthday cupcake (compliments of Jenni Benni) then I thought she'd like some too. So with one swift move I put the entire cupcake into her mouth. She didn't mind.


AND on my first birthday I stood up all by myself for about 5 seconds!! Jenn Lewis witnessed!

The big 0-1 !!

Frederick Fekkai wasn't available

I got my first haircut today.. in a monster truck no less. No more hockey hair for me (well at least for now).

What a sweet ride.

So how's everything? The family good?

I love what you did with the front

Do I feel lighter mom?
