October 2013


It's been a busy month and I've been learning and doing a lot! At 'school', we've been learning about fall, leaves, acorns and pumpkins. I've been working on holding the pencil correctly, writing my name and coloring inside the lines too. At home, I've been helping out and trying to be a good big brother. I like to help feed Kalia and love to play with her. We enjoy laughing together!
Kalia likes to sit in her chair and play. Sometimes I help and talk to her about how I played with this when I was a baby. That seems to be the most common conversation in the house lately. Every time Kalia does something I ask Mom or Dad, "Did I do that when I was a baby?" or "Did I play with that when I was a baby?" Sometimes Mom pulls out my baby albums and show me pictures of me doing these things. I think it's really fun to see them.
I've been working REALLY hard at trying new foods. If I try a new food, I get a piece of candy. I've only done it a couple of times, but we're going to work on it more with my Halloween candy. Below, I got a sucker because I ate cooked carrots and drank some orange juice - 2 things I've always been afraid to try.
We brought a bunch of pumpkins back from Gramma & Papa's farm. Mom & I  painted a few & Dad carved some too!

Grampa's Birthday Party

We headed to IA for the 2nd weekend in a row to surprise Grampa (on the farm) for his 60th birthday party. Since we were just there last weekend, we hoped that he would be surprised to see us again. He says he had a hunch about the party, but I guess we'll never know for sure. I had a good time surprising him and giving him suckers that said "60 sucks". There were lots of people there that I didn't know, but Mommy said it was good to be able to catch up with all of them.
 
CAKE TIME!...I got to take the golf cart car home with me!
 The little girls (Kalia & Emma) dressed like princesses
and Evan & I wore party hats for Papa 
Kalia was trying to take Papa's bottle - No No Kalia! 
 Opening presents. Mom says they say "Happy Birthday!"

The whole fam - minus Daddy.
He had to stay in KC for parent/teacher conferences.

Weekend on the Farm

Mommy, Kalia & I went to see Gramma & Grampa on the farm for the weekend. It's the middle of harvest so Papa worked in the combine and I worked on my tractor
 
I also went to castle park with Evan. I did A LOT of swinging.
I LOVE swinging!!
 
Papa's combine was broke down for a while, but I helped him fix it.

I had so much fun helping Papa! I thought it was awesome that he had a little chair for me next to him with my own seat belt!
And he let me drive a little...
 
It was a GOOD TIME! And I found out that we'll be back next weekend, but Papa doesn't know about it yet... it's a surprise party for his birthday!
