Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Mommy was already awake because she was getting ready for her doctors appointment. She had to leave not too long after I woke up for her appointment so I stayed with Grandma and she fed me breakfast and got me dressed.

When Mommy got home we played with my toys until lunch time. Then we played some more until nap time.

After nap we went outside and played and then came in and watched a movie until dinner time. Mommy got us chinese food for dinner.It was very yummy.

Mommy says today is New Years Eve but I dont really know what that is. After dinner we talked to you and then it was time for bath. After bath Mommy let me stay up to watch Travis Pastrana make a world record on tv. Then we went to bed.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 255

Dear Daddy,
Today we woke up and had breakfast and played for a while. Then I got ready and I went with Papa to play with my truck. While I was gone Mommy went through a lot of my toys and got rid of all of the broken ones or ones that had missing pieces. She said we have to start packing to move soon.

When I got home from playing with Papa I noticed that all of my toys were rearranged. So I had to proceed to get every single one out and make a gigantic mess! Mommy couldn't help but laugh at me.

Then it was time for lunch and nap.

After nap we went outside and played and then it started to sprinkle.

We had a good dinner and then talked to you and then got ready for bed.

I love and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 245

Dear Daddy,

Today both Mommy and I slept in. Mommy said it was nice to sleep in, but she also feels like half the day gets wasted sleeping in that late (even though it was only 9:30). Mommy said she can't wait for you to be home and for us to be able to sleep in and all of us cuddle as a family watching tv sunday mornings.

After we got ready we had lunch and then played until my nap time. After Mommy got me to sleep she went and got the last couple of Christmas gifts that she needed to shop for. She said she can't wait to wrap them all tomorrow!


Today was Grandma's birthday and I was so excited to take out the #20 on the Santa Claus chimney countdown. As soon as Grandma asked if I wanted to take out a number I got all excited and said "Grandma's birthday Grandma's birthday!!" Grandma was so happy I remembered her birthday.

After dinner and after my bath we had Grandma's birthday cake and she opened her presents.

Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Mommy was already ready so she fed me breakfast and got me dressed and we went and met Amy to do some Christmas shopping. We went to so many stores and we even got lunch too. I had a lot of fun with Mommy and Amy.

When we got home from shopping I was over tired and so we went and took a nap. I wasn't happy and cried a lot but finally fell asleep. I didn't get too long of a nap though because I got woken up by someone slamming a door. Mommy wasn't happy about that.

After that Mommy let me have a popsicle and that helped to soothe my throat a little. Mommy could tell my throat was still sore because I was hoarse sounding still.

Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Mommy told me we were going to go shopping at Costco. I LOVE shopping at Costco because I get good yummy samples. I was so excited I said "mommy lets go shopping!" So we got ready and headed out.

Mommy couldn't believe how busy they were for a Wednesday at 10:30 am. While we were there Mommy got some things we are going to need for when we move out like cleaning supplies and a few other things. I got to have a sample of a pickle and also and orange and an apple. Mommy looked down to find me eating peel of the orange too. She thought that was funny. She couldn't believe I was eating it and not spitting it out.

After Costco we went to Submarina for lunch. Mommy saw her old boss. She said he was her first boss ever from when she was 16. We shared a sandwich and some chips and it was very good.

Then we headed home because it was nap time. After I woke up from my nap we played for a while. When Papa got home from work he watched me play outside while Mommy took Lana for her walk.

Miss Lori said I did a good job today, but she could tell I was a little bit tense while I was swimming today.

When we went home we ate lunch and then played with my toys until it was nap time. Mommy ended up taking a nap with me because she had bad sinus headache and her ear was hurting from it.

I had some grapes for a snack and some juice. Then I played with Mommy for a little bit until she had to leave. She went to have coffee with her friend Tali for a couple of hours.

Dear Daddy,

Today we didn't have much planned. We never really do on Mondays. I of course woke up and ate breakfast. While Mommy was getting ready, I surprised her and got myself undressed including my diaper! I just wanted to run around naked. I think its funny!

After I got dressed and ready we colored until lunch time. I had a grilled cheese and some applesauce.

Then it was almost nap time but Mommy let me play with my cars for a little bit first. I was driving them all over Mommy's back. She said it was like a back massage. After my nap I had my snack and then we got ready to take Lana for her walk.

It was pretty cold outside when we were walking Lana. Luckily I had a heavy hooded jacket on and Mommy showed me how to put my hands in my jacket pockets. She said she has to get me some mittens so my hands dont get cold.

Mommy and I had a good lunch today and I ate all of it. Then we played until nap time.

After nap, Mommy and I started working on the gingerbread house. We put the sides together and then had to let those sit for an hour before we put the roof on. So we then ate dinner and waited for you to get on. When you got on, Mommy put the roof on and then it had to sit for a couple of hours before we could decorate it.

After we talked to you I got in the bath and then got my pajamas on. Then we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and had popcorn. Then it was on to decorating. Mommy said I was such a good helper!

Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Mommy wasn't home and I threw a fit. I was very worried about where she was. Uncle Curt was here watching me though so I calmed down. Mommy got home about 10 minutes after I woke up-she had been at the doctor.

When she got home I ate breakfast and we played inside all day because it was raining. Mommy had to make a couple of phone calls so she put Cars on for me. Then we played until lunch and nap time.

After my nap, Mommy ran a few errands and then when she got home we got ready to go out to dinner. Mommy, Grandma, Uncle Curt and I all went to Chilis. I had a lot of fun coloring and the food was delicious. After dinner we went and looked at some Christmas lights. They were so pretty.

Day 237

Dear Daddy,

Today when I got up I had to hurry and get ready because we were going to the mall to see Santa!!

When we got to the mall the line was about 20 people long so we got in and waited our turn. We were about 4 people away from the front they told us that Santa needed to eat lunch and that we had to come back in 1 hour. Mommy was NOT happy at all. Luckily they gave us a number to come back to the front of the line and so we went and had lunch at the food court and then went back. I was a little scared of Santa. He gave me a candy cane but I wasnt sure about him. They took my picture with him and then I started crying so Mommy came and got me. Santa also gave me a penguin stuffed animal. Santa sure is nice!

After that we walked around the mall for a little bit and then we went home. When we got home Mommy and I cuddled on the couch and rested a little bit since I had missed my nap. We both dozed off here and there but then I got a burst of energy and I went running around everywhere.

Soon it was dinner time and then time to talk to you :)

Dear Daddy,

Here are the pictures of me painting that Mommy wanted to show you. And there is also a picture of me and Jessie when I was playing at her house last night.






When I woke up today it was a swim day so we had breakfast and got ready for swimming and off we went.

I had a great time. Miss Lori was up in the front when we got there and she greeted us and we got right to swimming. I did really well she said with my polar bear arms today.

We went home and had lunch and played until nap time. While I was napping Mommy worked on my Christmas pajamas. She was really bummed because after 2 hours of working on them the shirt didn't fit :( The pattern was the wrong size. Even though it said 2T it didnt fit. So she is going to make my Christmas pajamas the same way she made me pajamas last year.

Then we ate dinner and got ready to go to Jessie's to play. I had a great time and Jessie's Mommy made chocolate chip cookies so I got to have one. They were so good! I had a chocolate face after that and Mommy said I was so cute.

Today we didn't have anything to do outside of the house which is a good thing because it POURED all day long. Mommy took me outside under the porch and let me put my hands out in the rain. It was lots of fun and i kept wanting to do it all day long.

I had eggs for breakfast and we had a good lunch. I had some soup and crackers and fruit. It sure was good on a nice cold day.

It never thundered though so I was glad about that because thunder scares me.

We did some coloring and played with my cars and train and we did a lot of cuddling under the blanket and watching tv since it was so cold.

Day 226

Dear Daddy,

Today Mommy had set her alarm to wake up early to workout and when she tried to move me off of her arm, I woke up. So she tried to get me back to sleep and in the meantime she fell back asleep. By the time she got up she didnt have time to workout because she had to take a shower because the painter was coming to paint the bathrooms. He was here ALL DAY.

When I finally woke up Mommy got me ready and we went to swim lessons. I had lots of fun with Miss Laurie and did really good using my polar bear arms. I even bent and touched my toes when it was time to jump off the side. Miss Laurie was so proud.

Then we went home and had lunch and I took a nap. Mommy doesn't know how I slept with all of the noise the painter was making, but I did take a pretty good one.

I wanted soup for dinner so thats what Mommy made for me and I had 2 bowls full.

I was pretty good and went to bed by 9 but then slept til 1030 and then was up for 2 hours. Mommy doesn't know why. I just like being with Mommy, thats all.

Dear Daddy,

Today when we woke up it was still somewhat raining-not as bad as yesterday, but still raining some. We ate breakfast and then I watched football with Papa while Mommy took a shower and got ready. After that we played with my cars and my train until lunch time. I had the rest of my grilled cheese and fries from dinner at Chilis last night. It was so delicious!

Then it was time for my nap. While I was sleeping, Mommy went to Walmart to get a few things and to Joanns and she got some Diego fabric to make me some more fleece longies and some Christmas fabric to make me some Christmas PJS and a Christmas pillow too. Mommy also got me a little Winnie the Pooh and Tigger and Piglet snowglobe that plays music when she was at Walmart. I loved it. I just laid there and looked at it for a long time last night.

We ended up having pizza for dinner and it was really good. I ate a whole piece all by myself.

After that I took a bath and got dressed for bed. I did pretty well with sleeping. I only woke up for about an hour and a half or so.

Day 223

Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Grandma was already decorating the house for Christmas. It looks so neat. There are lights everywhere and lots of Santas and Snowmen.

I have to learn to not touch everything though so I don't break it. At least thats what Mommy and Grandma keep saying.

After my lunch and nap we went to Joanns but when we went to wait in line to get the fabric cut and we were number 30 and they were only on number 9 so we couldn't wait anymore because we were going to dinner with Papa and Grandma at Chilis.

I ate almost all of my dinner and it was so yummy. Mommy and Grandma got the 2 people eat for $20 deal and got bottomless chips and salsa and they both got cajun chicken pasta and we took the dessert home.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXOXO

Day 222

Dear Daddy,

Today I slept in really late because I stayed up too late. Mommy fought with me for hours trying to get me to sleep. She cant wait until we move in January so I will have my own room again and she can get me sleeping better without all of the people in this house.

When I woke up I ate breakfast and played with Uncle Curt while Mommy took a shower and got ready. Then we had lunch and watched a Christmas cartoon on TV until nap time.

I took a pretty good nap and Mommy cuddled with me for a little bit while I napped.

After my nap we had a snack and played some more. We were going to go outside and play but it got really cold and windy. We are supposed to get rain all day tomorrow but we will see if thats true. Those weathermen are never right.

We ended up having McDonalds for dinner and it was really good. I had chicken nuggets and apple slices and a chocolate milk. I even got a new toy!

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 221

Dear Daddy,

Today was Turkey Day! (Or as I like to call it Toookey Day) When I woke up Mommy made me breakfast and then we played with my train for a while.

After Mommy got ready and we all got dressed we played and had lots of fun with everyone. I wish you had been here. I miss you Daddy.

Soon it was my nap time and of course I threw a fit at first, but as soon as Mommy held me, I conked out. I only slept for about 30-35 minutes, but I woke up refreshed. Mommy was making the fruit salad when I woke up, so Aunt Krista got me out of bed and I just hugged and hugged her.

Mommy had to go down to Rite Aide to get something for Grandma and while she was there she got me a jumbo Go Diego Go coloring book. I had lots of fun coloring in it all day. Mommy asked me to draw a picture for her, but I jut decided to color on every page instead. :)

When Uncle Curt got home from work it was time to eat! I ate lots of turkey and a few bites of stuffing and of course a sweet roll.

After dinner we talked to you for a while and then we watched A Christmas Story in our jammies.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 220

Dear Daddy,

Today we didn't have much planned so we slept in since I was up a lot last night. Mommy figured out why when she went to brush my teeth-I have a new tooth! Its my upper right second molar. I was pretty cranky all day though because of it and because I didn't get a lot of sleep.

After we got ready Mommy made me a good lunch..some whole wheat pasta and an orange and some whole wheat breaded chicken nuggets...sooo delicious and I ate every bit!

Then I took a nap and we played for a while after that. Then it was time to make the pumpkin pies and pecan pie. I was such a good helper and I had so much fun. I kept tasting the pumpkin pie and saying "I like it!". Mommy has a video and some pictures and she said she will send them do you.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 219

Dear Daddy,

Today Mommy woke me up and got me ready for the day because I had to go to swim lessons today. Even though I love swimming lessons, I was in a weird mood today and didn't want to listen or behave too well. I just wanted Miss Laurie to hug me and hold me.

After swimming we got lunch and then played until nap time. After nap time Mommy went to Walmart to get you a few things and to the post office to mail it. I didn't want to go with Mommy so I stayed with Grandma and had snack and some juice.

I was a pretty good boy the rest of the day. I liked talking to you online tonight Daddy. I miss you. Mommy got me some Christmas pajamas today and I am wearing my Mickey Mouse ones. She also got me some spongebob Christmas pajamas too.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 218

Dear Daddy,

Today we slept in a little bit since I kept Mommy up late again last night (whats new?). When we woke up Mommy finished talking to you for a bit and then we got ready and headed to Costco.

I got to eat a few samples while we were there and got to see all of the Christmas decorations and lights. I had lots of fun with Mommy shopping. She got me some cheese and crackers and some yogurt and we got some fruit and a few other things too.

After that we went home and ate lunch and then I took a nap. After nap we took Lana for her walk. We saw lots of planes and lots of red and orange leaves on the ground. Mommy said that happens when Fall comes.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 217

Dear Daddy,

Today when I woke up Mommy noticed I was quite myself and that my hands were a little bit shaky. She got really concerned so she gave me some juice and a banana thinking maybe my sugar was a bit low or something since I decided I didn't want to eat dinner last night.

Well she was talking to you on the computer and I started coughing and she looked at me and I puked all over the couch. So she picked me up and got me off the couch and I puked some more all over the floor. Mommy took me to get Grandma so she could hold me while Mommy cleaned up and I puked some more all over the hall floor. Mommy was so upset because she felt so bad for me.

Mommy decided that since after I was puking I was just laying around and acting not like myself that she wasn't going to go to the candle party. She was bummed because she really wanted to go, but I am more important she said.

The rest of the day, I was acting sick sometimes but fine other times. I seemed to be okay tonight and I had eaten some chicken soup and crackers for lunch. I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Day 216

Dear Daddy,

Today when i woke up Mommy was gone for a few hours. She went to see New Moon with Amy and Aunt Krista. I had a great time with Grandma and Papa today though. Papa took me to the park and we ran around in the grass and played on the playground. Then we went home and Grandma fed me lunch and tried to get me down for a nap, but I fought her for 45 minutes so I didn't get a nap.

I played with my toys and played with Grandma until Mommy got home. I was so happy to see Mommy when she got home. I missed her!

Mommy bought me two new books while she was out too. I love them. They are Ni Hao Kai Lan and Cars look and find books. I read them both right away.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 215

Dear Daddy,

Today we were supposed to have a playdate at Jayla and Sadee's, but I was up until almost 1:30 AM last night. Mommy knew if she tried to wake me up early to go over there on time that I would not be a nice little boy all day. So she decided to cancel for today.

When I finally did wake up, I ate breakfast and we played until it was time to get ready. Then it was soon lunch time and then nap time. Mommy paid the bills while I took a nap and when I woke up she had a headache again. :(

We both had a popsicle when I woke up and they were yummy sugar free ones!

I got to play outside with Papa today too because he had the day off so that was fun.

Tomorrow Mommy is going with Amy and Aunt Krista to the movies to see New Moon, so I am spending the whole day with Papa and Grandma. I'm very excited because I know I will have lots of fun.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 214

Dear Daddy,

Today Mommy slept in with me b/c she had a headache when her alarm originally went off. So we woke up and ate breakfast and talked to you and then got ready for swim class.

I was all by myself in class again today and I Like that because I get Miss Laurie all to myself. She lets me jump off the step sometimes too which I love doing.


When we were done there we went home and played until nap time. Mommys headache was back so she took a nap with me and I love that because I get to cuddle with her.

When I woke up, I stayed with Grandma while Mommy went and looked at a place for us to move to. Then we ate dinner and got ready to go to Jessie's house.

I had lots of fun there. We watched the movie Up and payed with all of her toys and had some chocolate milk too. Jessie gets a little mad because I always try to hug her and she doesn't like that. Mommy and Jessie's Mommy think its funny.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 213

Dear Daddy,

I slept in really late again today since I was up for a few hours last night. Mommy still doesn't know why my schedule is so messed up but she is hoping to get it back on track soon. I was glad to see you online again though when I woke up. I know you couldn't hear me this time but I kept telling you everything I was doing.

Mommy was already showered and dressed but she still had to get me dressed and of course I put up a fight but once she put on Cars for me I was okay. I had some pasta and grapes for lunch. It was good and I made a happy plate. I was so proud of myself.

After that we played with my toys until nap time. Mommy ended up taking a nap with me because she had a really bad headache.

After nap and Grandma was home I stayed here with her while Mommy went to the post office to mail out your Christmas packages and go to the grocery store to get a few things.

I was so happy to see Mommy when she got home. I ran up to her and said "Mommy your home!"

Gues what Daddy? The moon was finally out again tonight! We haven't seen it at all this week and I always get so sad.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 212




Dear Daddy,

Today you were on the computer with Mommy and were able to wake me up with her. I really liked that. I was in such a good mood and talked to you for a while. I love you Daddy.

Then we had to go so we could get ready for swimming. I did so well at swimming class. Miss Laurie was so proud of me! I used my polar bear arms really well she said. I was being silly and wearing these goggles and I thought it was so funny. Mommy said it was so cute. As soon as she got the camera I took them off and threw them into the pool.

Then we went home and ate lunch and I took a nap while Mommy cleaned and folded laundry. After nap I decided I didn't want to go for a walk with Mommy and Lana again so Grandma let me stay with her.

I was a good boy all day today though. I never really threw any fits.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Dear Daddy,

I was sad that I didn't get to talk to you today. Mommy and I had a fun day baking cookies for you. We made some chocolate chip and sugar cookies too. Mommy let me test them to make sure they were good :-)

We did lots of playing with my puzzles today. I had forgotten about them until Mommy brought them out.

We had some whole wheat pasta and chicken for lunch. And I had some grapes too.

I fought Mommy to take a nap again today. I just want to play instead of sleeping. After my nap Mommy let me have another cookie. I just wanted to make sure they were perfect for you Daddy :)

We had lasagna for dinner and it was pretty good.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Today when I woke up, Mommy was already awake. I had a waffle for breakfast-thats all I ever want Mommy says. But she said its okay because they are whole wheat waffles. I always have some fruit with my waffle too.

After breakfast we played and then Mommy got dressed and I decided I wanted soup for lunch. Of course soup its my favorite! I watched Cars of course today too. Mommy said she doesn't know how I don't get tired of this movie!

I threw a fit about taking a nap, but eventually gave in and went to sleep. While I was napping, Grandma stayed home with me and Papa and Mommy went out shopping to get you some more stuff for your Christmas package. Mommy said tomorrow I can help her bake cookies for you.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy! So do Mommy and Lana!

Dear Daddy,

Today we woke up kind of late since I stayed up a little late last night. I told Mommy I wasn't tired so she let me stay up to watch Cars.

I had 2 waffles for breakfast. And I kept telling Mommy I wanted more, but she said no because she didn't want me to get a tummy ache.

After breakfast we got ready for the day and played until lunch time. We had sandwiches for lunch and then played some more until nap time.

After I woke up from my nap, Mommy, Grandma and I headed out to Costco to do some shopping. We ended up getting some snacks, a blanket sleeper for me, an outfit for me and we even got you a couple of Christmas presents!

Day 208

Dear Daddy,

Today Mommy woke me up because we had to get ready for our playdate. We went over to Jayla and Sadee's house. I had lots of fun. We played with their McDonalds drive thru/kitchen thing. And we went outside and played with their cars and bikes. I even got to ride on a quad that was a powerwheels. It was so neat that it went all by itself when I pushed a button. I think Mommy knew i liked it a lot so she said that maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas.

After we were done playing, we went home and ate lunch and then took a nap. I must have been worn out from all that running around playing Mommy said because I took almost a 2 hour nap. I rarely do that anymore.

After nap we woke up and Grandma was home from work. Mommy wanted to take Lana for her walk but I didn't want to go so Grandma said I could stay home with her. We played outside until Mommy and Lana got home. It was pretty cold out so I had to wear my jacket with my hood.

Then we had dinner and talked to you and now Im gonna go to bed. I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 207

Dear Daddy,

Today we woke up and had breakfast and got ready because it was a swim lesson day!

I was all alone in class today and Miss Laurie said she loves that. She loves having me all to herself for a whole half hour. We had lots of fun. She let me jump off the side to her a few times and she threw me in the air and dragged me back and forth in the water too. It was so much fun. I was just giggling and giggling. I did so well and used my polar bear arms really well.

After swim lessons, we went home and played until nap time. After nap, we had snack and read my books and then played with my toys until dinner time. Then after dinner we headed over to Jessie's house to play. I had lots of fun. We played with balloons and watched Ice Age 3. I love playing there!

Day 206

Dear Daddy,

Today we woke up at a decent time since I slept all night for Mommy. She was so happy that I slept well.

We had a good breakfast and talked to you for a few minutes and then got ready for the day. Then we played with my trains until it was time for Mommy to make lunch. While she made lunch, I watched Cars with Uncle Curt. I love that movie and never get tired of it.

After lunch we built a tower out of blocks and I played some with Aunt Krista until it was nap time.

Im not sure what Mommy did while I was napping, but I heard her tell Grandma, she didn't get too much done since I only napped for 30 minutes.

Later on in the afternoon, we took Lana for her walk and then Grandma took me outside to play so Mommy could have some time to just relax. I had a great time outside with Papa and Grandma. I found all kinds of rocks.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 205

Dear Daddy,

TOday I woke up in a great mood until the banana I was eating for breakfast broke in half. I was not happy about that at all. I threw a fit for a long time no matter what Mommy did to console me. Mommy says Im so silly when I act that way and that she doesn't like it.

After breakfast we got ready for swim lessons. I had a good time, but at first I didn't want to go to Miss Laurie. Mommy doesn't know what it was. I just wanted to stay by Mommy, but then Miss Laurie let me jump off the step to her and I was okay after that.

I did pretty good with my polar bear arms in swim class today and Miss Laurie gave me lots of hugs.

After that we went home and ate lunch and then it was my nap time. After nap, Ashleigh was there and she cut and colored Mommys hair while I played with my toys and sang and danced for them. Ashleigh say Im so silly but so cute! Mommy said she agrees. You should see Mommys hair-it looks so pretty.

Since today was Lana's birthday we sang Happy Birthday to her and then you got to watch her open her gifts. Well actually I opened them for her :) She loves her new chew toy.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 204

Dear Daddy,
Today we woke up and did the laundry and played all morning. I am so good at helping Mommy put all the stuff from the washer into the dryer. Mommy says I am her special helper.

After we played for a while, we got ready for the day and then it was time for lunch. I had some pasta and chicken and it was very good. After that we made one of the little foam puppets that Mommy bought for me at the craft store. It was a monkey-I keep forgetting to show you it when we talk to you. I make a great monkey noise Daddy!

Then I took a nap and Mommy did some of her crocheting and folded some laundry. When Grandma got home I stayed with her and Mommy ran to Walmart to get a few things and to Henrys to get some fruit and veggies and other things.

Mommy got me some whole grain organic bunny shaped crackers. They are great! I got to have some as a snack while we took Lana for her walk. Silly Lana got scared of a big truck and I told her "its okay Sissy".

I love you and miss yoU Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

When Mommy got home last night I was STILL awake-I wouldn't sleep for Grandma- so we slept in again today. Mommy made me a good breakfast and then she took a shower. Then we played until lunch time. We set up my train and played with it. I love saying "choo choo!"

Then we had lunch and then took a nap. Mommy tried to take a nap, but couldn't fall asleep so she went out to fold the laundry and check some things online.

I woke up from my nap in a great mood and came walking out with a big smile on my face. I played a game with Mommy on her phone for a while and then I decided I wanted to play with my cars. After that we played with my blocks too.

Then it was dinner time and I ate a lot of Grandmas food instead of my own.

We slept in really late til almost 10:30 today since we were up late. Mommy made me eggs and sausage for breakfast and I ate all of mine and some of hers. It was good.

After that we got ready and played until lunch time. After lunch it was nap time. Mommy tried to take a nap with me, but couldn't fall asleep so she went out and did some cleaning.

After nap, I played with Mommy until she had to leave to go to Amys. She said she was having a girls night with Amy. She deserves it Daddy. She does so much for me and I don't sleep well so she doesn't get a lot of time to herself. She is the best Mommy ever. I had fun with Papa and Grandma while Mommy was gone. I ate all my dinner and we played outside.

Day 201

Dear Daddy,

How are you? Today when we woke up we ate breakfast and then got ready. Once we were ready we headed to Joann's to get some fabric-Mommy wanted to make me a new blanket. But then ended up not having any of the fabric that Mommy wanted to use so she said we would check back next week. While we were there Mommy picked up some paint and paint brushes and also some other craft stuff.

Then we went home and ate lunch and I took a nap.


After nap, Mommy put one of her old pajama shirts on me and we got to painting! I loved it and wanted to paint forever.








I did end up throwing a fit in the middle of all of it because Mommy tried to paint too and I didn't like her using my paints for some reason.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Mommy said she agrees-that Im the light of her day every day :) That made me smile and then I gave Mommy a big hug and got her all wet from the pool-haha!

After we got home from swimming, I finished my lunch and then we took a nap. Mommy took a nap too because she still isn't feeling well.

Almost 200 days Daddy. Thats a long time.

Today we didn't do much of anything again. Mommy wants us recooperating until we are healthy again fully. Tomorrow we are going to go to swim lessons since I seem to be almost 100% better and Mommy is a little better.

It was a little cloudy out today, but it was still warm. We did play outside for a little bit in the afternoon.

I was such a good boy all day today. I didn't throw many fits at all.

We read every single one of my books today. Mommy said she is so glad that I love to read. It will make me even smarter than I already am she says :)

Day 198

Dear Daddy,

Today Mommy and I still weren't feeling well. She decided we weren't going to go to swim lessons today. Even though the pool is heated, I still get cold and shiver so Mommy was afraid it would make me sicker. Plus she didn't want us giving everyone else our germs.

We just had a relaxing and nice day at home again. Mommy wants us to get all better.

I miss you Daddy. Mommy looked so sick today, I could tell she would have liked to have slept all day, but she was great and played with me all day.

We had some pasta alfredo for dinner and it was pretty good. Mommy said there is only a few more months until you come home. I can't wait! I can't wait to play football and run around with you and play cars and watch the movie Cars too!

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 197

Dear Daddy,

Today not only did I wake up still not feeling well, Mommy woke up sick too. We spent most of the morning just relaxing and cuddling since we weren't feeling well.

We had some chicken noodle soup and crackers and fruit for lunch. Mommy said its a good thing I love chicken noodle soup so much. She said its really good for you when you are sick.

After we had lunch, Mommy put me down for a nap. Then when Grandma got home, I was still sleeping and Mommy headed off to her doctors appointment. She wanted to talk to another doctor about the stomach pains she has been having and the acid reflux and heartburn. While she was there she had him look at her throat and listen to her lungs just to make sure she just had a cold and not the flu. He confirmed that what she had was just a cold so that made Mommy feel better to know that what we had wasn't the flu. She knows she got it from me since I was sick first.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 196

Dear Daddy,
Today we just relaxed and hung out at home. I wasn't feeling well still so we ate lots of chicken noodle soup and water to keep me hydrated.

After we had lunch and I took a nap, Mommy went to the grocery store while I stayed home with Grandma. I was actually still sleeping when Mommy got home from the store. She got me some more juice and some snacks and applesauce.

After that we played and cuddled and watched movies until it was time to talk to you and then take a bath and get ready for bed.

I wouldn't sleep right away b/c I wasn't feeling well so Mommy and I watched a movie and had some popcorn and then we went to sleep.

I woke up late and ate breakfast and then for lunch Mommy made me some chicken noodle soup.

Mommy put me down for a nap and then went to Walmart to get some last minute things. When she got home she finished her Edward pumpkin and then we played until dinner.

After dinner we got me dressed up and ready to go. Mommy said that she sent you the pictures already and she can't find the camera for me to post them on here right now.

I had so much fun Trick or Treating. I was so polite and said thank you to everyone who gave me candy. After each house I said "next door". It was so cute Mommy and Grandma said.

When we got home, we passed out some candy and then watched a movie and then went to bed.

I slept really good and Mommy said its because she knows I didn't feel good.

Dear Daddy,
I am always in a good mood when i wake up and you are on the computer talking to Mommy. Mommy says I always seem to be in a better mood when I wake up and you are already on the computer.

After we talked to you I took a bath and then we got ready for the day. We had swim class with Miss Laurie today. We had so much fun. I kept jumping into her arms and she thought it was so funny.

After swim lessons we went home and had lunch and played. Mommy all of a sudden got a bad headache so we layed and cuddled on the couch-I watched a movie and Mommy cat napped until it was time to take Lana for her walk.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 192

Dear Daddy,
Today we didn't have anything to do so since I kept Mommy up late last night, we slept in until 9:30 when you called. Then we got up and ate breakfast and talked to you for a while. I played with my tools in the bathroom while Mommy took a shower-I fixed my potty since I thought it was broken.

Then we got to play a little bit and then had lunch. After lunch I didn't have to take a nap though! I was so happy. Mommy is going to try to see how I do with no naps to see if I sleep better at night and go to sleep at a decent time.

We went to Jen's house to play with Jessie and Nathan today. One of Jen's friends was there with her little boy too so I had lots of fun. I started getting really cranky about 745 or so. Mommy thinks that with no naps she might have to move my bedtime to earlier.

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 191

Dear Daddy,
I kept Mommy up late again last night so we slept in today. We had to get up by 9 though so we could get ready for swim lessons.

As you know since you were talking to Mommy when she woke me up, I was a grump. Mommy kept telling me if I would learn how to sleep at night maybe I wouldnt sleep so late and be a grump every morning.

We had a great time at swim lessons. Miss Laurie said I am doing better every lesson with my polar bear arms. I still need to get a little better though. I am trying hard and both Mommy and miss Laurie are so proud of me.

After swim lessons, we had lunch and then played until nap time. After nap Mommy went to the post office to mail out your care packages and then to pick up another bag of Lana's food at the vet. I stayed with Grandma because it was very cold and rainy out today.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Today we woke up and ate breakfast and then talked to you for a bit. Then Mommy put on a movie for me so she could work out for a little bit. Then Mommy made us some lunch. We both had chicken noodle soup and some crackers and fruit. It was so delicious! I had seconds even.

After lunch it was time for nap. When I woke up from my nap and after Grandma got home, Mommy had to go to her dentist appointment.

When she got home we took Lana on her walk. I saw the moon when it was still daylight out! There was also this really mean cat who kept hissing at us and chasing us! Mommy thought it was funny that a cat was chasing two people and a dog.

We had whole wheat pasta and chicken for dinner and then played until bath and bed time.

I love you and miss you so much. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO
Love

Day 189

Dear Daddy,

We stayed the night at Amy's last night so when we woke up today I had a great time running around her house. It was fun to be somewhere else and run around.

We left Amy's house about 1 o'clock and went home and ate lunch and played. After Papa woke up from his nap, he took me outside to play while Mommy took a nap. She was so tired. She has been really tired lately. I played outside with Papa for so long while Grandma made tacos for dinner. I liked those tacos. They were good.

Mommy is letting me stay up just a little bit late tonight because I am watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse special where they are taking Choo Choo Express train up to Mistletoe Mountain to bring snow back down the mountain. I love this show.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 188

Dear Daddy,
Today when we got up, Grandma made me breakfast and got me ready because Mommy had an appointment to go look at some apartments that we might move into in January. Mommy said she likes them and thinks we will like them too.

After that she came home and we ate lunch. Then we played until about 3 when we left to go up to Amys. Jen and Jessie and Nate followed us up to Amys and I had such a good time playing with Jessie. We played so nice together. We had Pat & Oscars for dinner. I ate a piece of pizza and some pasta and a breadstick.

After that, we watched Alvin & the Chipmunks and played until Jessie and Nate had to leave. When it was time for them to go, I ran up to Jessie and gave her big hugs and I even gave her kisses. Everyone just thought that was so cute!! Mommy said she emailed you the picture.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXOXO

Day 187

Dear Daddy,
Today we were supposed to go play with Jayla and Sadee but they are both sick and my throat was hurting last night so we just stayed home. When we woke up we ate breakfast and then got ready.

Then we went and got the car washed because it was filthy and Mommy has been saying for 2 weeks that she was going to have it washed. Then we got lunch and came home and ate it. Mommy said I was such a good boy at the car wash that I got to pick what we had for lunch and I chose chicken nuggets. So Mommy got me a happy meal at McDonalds with chicken nuggets and apple slices and chocolate milk. It was very good!

Then we took a nap and when we woke up I stayed with Grandma while Mommy went to Walmart to get some stuff.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXO

Day 186

Dear Daddy,
How are you? We are doing good. Today was a good day. After breakfast we got ready and then played until lunch. Then I had swim lessons.

Today I was the only one in my class so I got Miss Laurie all to myself. We had lots of fun playing.

After we got home, I took a nap with Mommy and then we got up and I had an orange and some water for my snack. After snack, Mommy paid the bills while I played with Grandma. Then we took Lana on her walk. I saw 3 planes on our walk Daddy, 3! I got so excited every time I saw another plane. Mommy said I am the cutest little boy ever.

When we got home from our walk, we had spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner. It was so good! Sorry I wouldn't talk to you after dinner, I was too busy playing with my toys.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXOXO

Day 185

Dear Daddy,
Today we slept in yet again because I kept Mommy up late again last night. She doesn't know why I am such a night owl lately.

I loved being able to talk to you this morning though. I miss you Daddy. I love you so much!

For lunch, Mommy made me some of my Dora chicken noodle soup that I have been asking for. I love Dora because of Boots the monkey :)

After lunch Mommy and I took a LONG nap. We both needed it. We woke up refreshed and Mommy let me have some ice cream since I have been asking for some for a few days.

After dinner, we went over to Mommy's friend Jen's house. I got to meet her daughter Jessie, and her son Nathan. I had so much fun playing and Mommy says we can go back over to play next week. All Mommy and her friend did was talk and drink their coffee. They loved watching us play together though.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 184

Dear Daddy,
Today Mommy had to wake me up since I still wasn't up at 9:15. I needed to get up and get ready to go to swim lessons. I missed seeing Miss Laurie last week! She was so happy to see me today!

After swim lessons, we went and got lunch and then went home. Mommy feels so bad about what happened when she went to get me out of the car. She let me out of my carseat and then I started to crawl to the other side so she closed the door and went to the other side to get the stuff out. She didn't realize I was holding on to the door when she opened it (she knew I couldnt open it since the child protection locks are on) and I fell out and fell to the ground on my hands and then my face :( Mommy felt so bad that she cried. She kept saying "it's all my fault" but I told her "its okay Mommy." and gave her lots of kisses. I still love her and I know it was just an accident.



After my nap, Grandma had gotten me a new Blues Clues DVD as a surprise. I loved it! I stayed home with Grandma and watched it while Mommy took Lana to the dog park to meet Aunt Krista and Ashleigh and her dog Sadie to play. Mommy wanted me to go with but I just wanted to watch my new DVD.

We had pizza for dinner and it was so good! I hate 1 1/2 pieces :) Mommy said I am a little piggy.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 183

Dear Daddy,
Today we woke up and did some laundry and ate breakfast and played. Then we had to get ready to go to Mommy's doctor's appointment. I was such a good boy at Mommy's appointment and I just sat in my stroller and played my games on Mommy's phone. Her doctor was so impressed with how smart I was and how well I behaved. She thought I was 4 years old! :) Im such a big boy Daddy!

After Mommy's appointment we went home and I played with Grandma while Mommy went to try to get her flu shot. The two places she tried were out of them so she is going to go to another place on Thursday since they only do them Thursday-Sunday there. If not she is gonna have to wait until her doctor gets more.

Mommy brought home some donuts after and Iloved them! They had orange and black sprinkles on them for Halloween!

Well Daddy, I love you and miss you so so much. Do do Mommy and Lana.


XOXOXOXOXO

Day 182

Dear Daddy,
We didn't wake up until late again today since neither Mommy or I went to bed at a decent time. Mommy says our sleep schedule is just all messed up. We are watching Blues Clues right now and Mommy is trying to get me to sleep.

Today I did a lot of playing with all of my toys and we read a lot of books too. Mommy thinks she might be getting sick so she didn't feel like doing too much today. We did lots of cuddling though. After our nap, Papa took me outside to play so Mommy could fold the laundry and vacuum and clean the bathroom. I helped Papa work on the dune buggy and was such a good helper.

Tomorrow Mommy has a doctors appointment that we have to go to and Tuesday I get to start swim lessons again! Im going to be so excited to see Miss Laurie.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 181

Dear Daddy,
Today we slept in until 10 am again since I didn't go to sleep until almost midnight and Mommy didn't go to bed until almost 3am.

I wouldn't eat breakfast, but I did eat a good lunch. When I was taking a nap Mommy went and returned my train set for another one. The one she bought me yesterday didn't work very well. But I loved the new one she got me because it is motorized. She says she is a bad Mommy b/c she forgot to take pictures of me playing with it today. She said she just has so much on her mind that the littlest things slip. She is sorry Daddy.

I had some soup and some strawberries for dinner. I LOVE strawberries now!

I love you and miss you so much Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana!

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 180

Dear Daddy,

Those are some pictures Mommy forgot to show you. The last two are of me and Dave and Tiffany's daughter Katelyn playing at the bbq at Amy's house when Ben and Kristy and Addy were here.


Today we slept in until 10:30 can you believe it? That is because I kept Mommy up until 1am! 1am!!! Mommy had no idea why I was up so late. She thinks its probably because the last few nights she was at the doctors so late and I was up worried about where she was. Luckily both nights Grandma was able to console me and get me back to sleep.

Today Mommy got me a train set! I love it. She knew I liked trains because every time I see one on TV i get so excited and start yelling "choo choo train". She forgot to take some pictures of me playing with it tonight, but she said she will this weekend for you to see. And she said since we didn't go to swim lessons this past week she promises to get pictures and video of me next week.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 179

Dear Daddy,

I love you so much Daddy. Today we slept late since Mommy was at the ER until almost 2 and i didnt go to bed until almost 1.

Aunt Amy brought us lunch from Rubios today. It was really good. I took a good nap and didn't want to come out of the room when I woke up. I just wanted to play in the room so Mommy let me and I came out about 10 minutes later.

Mommy and I cuddled and watched some tv later in the afternoon and then we had dinner and played until you got online. I miss you Daddy..

I can't wait for you to come home. We all miss and love you so much Daddy.

Day 178

Dear Daddy,
Mommy wasn't feeling well today so we didn't do much again. We watched some movies and cuddled a lot. I love cuddling with Mommy.

Tomorrow Mommy has to go to the doctor so she said we have to get up early. I don't like getting up early, but Mommy is hoping that I won't be too grumpy.

Grandpa made me lunch today when he was home on his lunch break. It was good. Peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some strawberries too. Then when he got home from work he took me outside and we played for a couple of hours until dinner.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 177

Dear Daddy,
Mommy wasn't feeling well today so she laid down all day and Grandma stayed home and took care of me.

I had lots of fun with Grandma and I was quiet when Mommy was sleeping. Mommy was so proud of me.

I had soup for lunch because I asked Grandma for soup and then I had some strawberries as well. Mommy said she wishes I would have liked strawberries sooner because now they are almost out of season. I used to not like strawberries she said. Then all of a sudden I decided I liked them.

Grandma made some good basil pasta and chicken for dinner. It was very good!

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 176

Dear Daddy,

How are you? I am doing good.

Today was a pretty boring day. Didn't do much. It was cold and drizzly all day so we played inside most of the day. Mommy and I cuddled and watched a movie together too. It was nice. Mommy said she likes it when I cuddle with her.

We had a good lunch today. Chicken, whole wheat pasta with Parmesan cheese and strawberries. Mommy tried making some broccoli as well but I wouldn't even try it.

After nap we took Lana for her walk and it started sprinkling so we headed back home after about 30 min.

I love you and miss you Daddy! Oh I forgot to tell you. tonight after my bath Mommy and I were playing hide and seek and Mommy layed on the floor and I went up and peed on her head! She was so grossed out and Aunt Krista was laughing so hard.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 175

Dear Daddy,
Today was just a relaxing day. We didn't have much planned. Mommy likes to have a relaxing day on the weekend since we are usually so busy during the week.

We woke up at ate breakfast like always and then we played and then got ready for the day. I had some pizza for lunch and Mommy ran to the store while I stayed with Grandma and ate my lunch. Mommy picked up some orange juice and lots of fruit full of vitamin C so we can try to stay healthy and keep away the flu this winter. I love strawberries and I will even eat oranges now so Mommy was happy about that. She is doing her best to keep us healthy.

When Mommy got home we watched the race for a bit until nap time. Mommy ended up taking a nap with me since she was tired. When we woke up we just started watching the race again and Mommy started screaming because Denny wrecked. She was so upset! I just kept yelling "go Denny!". Mommy was pretty mad.

I had a good day just playing with my toys and Mommy and I played hide and seek.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 174

Dear Daddy,
I slept pretty well last night so Mommy was happy about that. When we woke up today Mommy reminded me we were going to the pumpkin patch today. I was so excited so I immediately jumped out of bed and ran out to the living room. I then started screaming to Mommy that I wanted "affles(waffles), sausage and donuts". She gave me a waffle and sausage. She told me she only lets me have waffles so often because they are whole wheat waffles and they have lots of fiber in them.

We got ready and headed off to the pumpkin patch. Mommy said she already sent you all of the pictures and you saw them so I am not going to post them on here because I don't know where Mommy put the camera.

I got to see mini horses that Mommy kept calling ponies. She doesn't know what she is talking about though. They were horses. I also saw some baby chickens and baby goats and baby rabbits. I almost got stung by a bee but Grandpa grabbed it off of me and got stung on his finger. Grandpa sure must love me.

I picked out all the pumpkins for us and had lots of fun. After we were there for a couple hours we left and went and got lunch and went home. I took a late nap since I didn't finish eating until almost 2:30. We just hung out at home the rest of the night and played. I made Papa and Grandma hamburgers out of my playdoh set.

I love you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 173

Dear Daddy,
Today we went to the park to play. We met up with one of Mommy's old high school friends Laura and I played with her two daughters Jayla and Sadie.

I had a great time. I was a big boy and listened to Mommy when she told me to be careful. I got mad when it was time to leave. We went home and had lunch and then took a nap.

After nap Mommy went and got her haircut and I stayed home and played with Grandma. We had lots of fun playing with my chalk outside.

Mommy got us Rubio's for dinner and I ate all of mine.

Tomorrow we are going to the Pumpkin Patch with Papa & Grandma and Mommy promised she will take lots of pictures for you.

I love yo and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

Day 172

Dear Daddy,

Today I woke up in a not so great mood. Mommy isn't sure why since I slept wonderful last night. I didn't beg to come into you and Mommy's bed until about 6am.

I had a small breakfast since on Thursdays we have lunch a little bit early so we had to go to swim lessons at 12 and then come home for nap. I did so good at my swim lessons. Mommy promises she will take more videos and pictures on Tuesday at our next lesson.

After nap we played with playdo and then took Lana on her walk. I had a good time and got to meet another doggy along the way.

Grandma and Mommy weren't feeling well tonight so Mommy went and got us Burger King for dinner. It was so good!

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO

Day 171

Dear Daddy,
I slept horribly last night. Mommy isn't sure why. She thinks maybe my 2nd molars are trying to come in again because I keep chewing on my fingers. She is hoping I sleep better tonight so she can get some rest. She has been really tired lately because all of her energy is going to the baby.

We didn't do much this morning. Just hung out at home and played inside because it was pretty chilly outside. After lunch and nap Mommy paid the bills and then we took Lana for her walk. I was laughing at Lana a lot because she kept stopping dead in her tracks and wouldn't move. Mommy didn't find this too funny though. I dunno why because I sure couldn't stop laughing.

When we got home I threw a fit because I didn't want to come inside, but Mommy had lots of laundry to fold so Grandma took me back outside. I threw another fit because I didn't want to put my jacket on but I finally gave in. I guess it was pretty cold outside.

I love you and miss you Daddy. So do Mommy and Lana.

XOXOXOXOXO
