Cars and Cousins

Let me just finish this article, then I'll start the blog post
Hey everybody! It's been a really eventful week. Last Sunday, Mommy and Daddy took me, along with Mommom, Cousin Daniel and Aunt Hannah and Uncle Kyle, to meet Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater and the other "Cars" characters. They were parked outside Citizen's Bank Park, so not only did I get my picture taken with them, but I got to see the ballpark for the first time too! I can't wait to go to my first game.

The next two days after that were spent up in Northern New Jersey for our family Passover seder. It was almost three days with a whole bunch of my family, including all five of us little cousins- me, Daniel, Joshua, Avi and Ella. I was pretty tiny for last year's seder, but this year I was all over the place. Before you know it, I'll be reading the Four Questions and giving Daniel and Avi a run for the Affikomen!

Also up in New Jersey, I got to see my friends Alex and Anna, who were visiting from Ohio with their parents, Mommy and Daddy's friends Dena and Mike:

Anyway, I'm making more noises than ever and I'm exploring more and more of the house- I really like opening and emptying out the tupperware drawer, although Mommy doesn't like it so much! Here's more of what I've been doing:

That's all for now, I'm excited for our trip to Minnesota next weekend. Time for sleep!

April Fun

Hey everybody! Hope everyone's having a good April. I had a really nice visit last weekend with Grammy and Grandpa. Luckily the weather was really nice so we got to spend some time outside.

We had a great visit and I can't wait to see them when we visit Minnesota in a few weeks- and I hope the weather stays nice too!

I've been doing a whole lot of new things since I last posted here. I'm starting to say more and more words- I've said "cup" more than once, I say "hi" all the time, and Cousin Daniel swears he heard me call Lightning McQueen by name today. I'm also completely off of baby food, and off the bottle and on to the sippy cup!

I'm also clapping, and can raise my arms too. Here's a video of me doing a few of my new tricks:

Of course, I've learned another trick that was even harder- I can crawl all the way up the stairs! Here I am in action:

Anyway, I've been having a lot of fun hanging out with my cousins Daniel and Joshua at Mommom's house during the week:

Here's a video of a frequent pastime of Daniel and I: screaming fight!:
And here Joshua and I play with toys- and I quickly gain an advantage:

Last week, I got to see Poppop Joe and Mommom Ev, who are back from their winter in Florida. I'm so glad I get to see them all the time this summer:

Here are some other highlights of what I've been up to lately:
I just got a new haircut- don't I look different?

These two pictures may look similar, but they were actually taken 12 hours apart

Taking a walk around the neighborhood- I'll be walking too before long!
Anyway, I'm excited to go up to New Jersey next weekend and see a whole of lot of my family at Passover. That's all for now, thanks for reading everyone!
