Hello everyone. So sorry this has taken so darn long to update. The last five months have been a bit on the weird side when it comes to technology. Dad also decided that this website should be updated via “wordpress” which allegedly will make updating easier (hear that Mom??)
A quick recap:
We had some work done on the house. A guy named Jeff put some floor joists and subflooring in our attic. It’s all in preparation for the move upstairs—hopefully next year. The construction was not without its problems: Jeff’s helper fell though our kitchen ceiling! But he was ok. and Jeff had to come back and fix it. I love Jeff. I brought one of my little chairs into the dining room to watch him work. He used a lot of neat tools, just like Grampy. I sure love tools. I get very excited whenever there is a house project that needs to get done.
For Halloween, I was a Herbie car. My folks had bought this costume years before I was born and had been holding onto it until just the right time. It’s pretty fun. My parents got the original “Love Bug” movie from the library. I watched about a half hour of it but told them to shut it off because it was too scary: no one was wearing seatbelts!
I discovered something neat: scissors are not just for cutting paper. They can cut hair too. I first figured that out at school and accidentally hacked me up some bangs. Then later, I cut some more of my hair just for kicks. Mom’s not too keen on that.
I went to my first rock concert. I saw Ralph’s World at the Egg in Albany. Boy, was I star struck! I’d only ever seen him on a video. It was a great concert! He was such a nice guy. He came out to the lobby before and after the show. I kept wanting to stand in line to meet him. When we got to him, I’d get super shy and hide in Mom or Dad’s shoulder. I did enjoy the show. He invited all the kids to come down and dance in front of the stage, and at the end, on stage. I kept saying to Mommy: “I want to get closer to Ralph”. Mom and Dad weren’t really sure I liked the concert because I was so quiet the whole time. It was only afterwards when I was telling everyone all about it, that they realized I had a great time.
I continue to love school. Mom and Dad had a parent/teacher conference, and surprise, surprise, I’m a delight!
Thanksgiving was good. We went to cousin central (aka Ithaca) and it was a full on toddler fest! I had 7 helpings of turkey. We did some major playing and had a great time.
The Holidays were good. Once again we went to Grammy & Grampy’s and I had a great time with Uncle Mike and Aunt Suma (they even got frequent hugs from me–a big step!)
Mom and I got our very own laptop! It was getting a little crazy waiting for Dad to leave his computer so we could have a shot at it. I love the photo booth option on the Mac, and still enjoy computer games and watching videos of myself when I was little.
I have started to do a wee bit of reading–a word here or there. It’s hard for Mom and Dad to really tell since I have a really good memory of books (have since 18 months).
I think that’s about it. Since this new blog system is easy, I may be updating this more frequently (although ANYTHING is more frequent than what we’ve been doing.
Sophie: Daddy, I’ll push you on the swing.
Sophie: How high do you want to go?
Dad: Oh, I don’t know, I don’t need to go so high, medium is fine.
Sophie: Well, we’re going high today. Today, we’re talking high.
Dad, you steered me wrong. This is my jungle cup.

And cows are animals. Farm animals, of course.
