Well what a busy couple of days I have had! On Thursday Gramma was feeling all smug thinking that she could go the whole week without being squirted, but really I was waiting for the opportune moment! Thursday morning the time was right, the diaper was open, gramma was unsuspecting, and I let it fly! It was a good one too! Gramma screamed! Luckily Auntie Heidi was home and helped Gramma clean up, hee hee. I figure if me and Brighton are going to have contests one day, I better start practicing, he is older! Then on Friday, I got a fever and a croupy cough. I didn't sleep much, and Gramma says I better nap cuz she is exhausted! I had to go to the Dr. but luckily got no shots, only medicine. While the Dr was checking in my throat Grampa saw that I got a new tooth! On the bottom! I am the earliest one to get a tooth, yay for me, I set a first!! I am very excited to tell my mom and dad about all my adventures this week, and can't wait to see them!
I don't have a picture of me doing this yet, Gramma is too slow with the camera, but I have taught myself a new trick, and I just love it do it! I make a round "O" with my mouth, then breath Oh Oh Oh in and out in a breathy whispery sort of way, it sounds so cool, and I am so impressed with my little self! Gramma likes to do it with me too. I can't wait to show mom and dad and Brighton!
Gramma left me with Grampa to have dinner with friends, and I love Grampa, I really do, but it reminded me that I was missing my mom and dad and brother, and I just got so sad I cried alot, I felt bad for me!! So did Gramma and Grampa and they did hug and kiss on me and cheered me up.
Grampa came home for lunch just to play with me! I like to play with grampa and Molly, but Molly usually runs way from me, I don't know why! I am ready to run errands and go to lunch with Gramma! Yes, there are sometimes when I like to play toys and crawl around, but I do like to be held alot!
I did good at lunch with Gramma and her friends, everyone thought I was adorable and they all wanted to hold me, but I just wanted gramma to hold me! Gramma bought me some blanket sleepers because she thinks I like the snuggie sack so well, but I might grow out of it soon. Gramma says I can have my Christmas toy early to play with here, and now she says I can have half of an outfit too, my sweatshirt jacket so I can wear that early too! Staying here is working out good for me! But I do miss my mom and dad and brother!
*My hair grows in a little V that Gramma thinks is perfectly adorable. She tries to spike it, but it doesn't work very often. She needs to get some hair goo like my mom has
*I am friendly and smiley and fun to be around, especially when I get my way!
*I am obsessed with anything esp. paper that makes a crinkly sound. I will crawl over anything to get to the crinkly sound
*I love to be rocked to sleep. Somehow the rumor got started that I did not, but I do!! One time Gramma even thought that I was so tired I would just lay right down, but then I reminded her quite loudly that I like to be rocked!
*I like to be held, or have Gramma sit close by me while I play
*I like to go outside on walks
*I like to pull on gramma's hair and put it in my mouth too. She loves me so she lets me some of the time!
*I like to kick kick kick my legs, they are always moving! This usually makes my socks fall off. One time in Target I lost both my socks, and Gramma looked and looked but could only find one!
Michelle and Deloy come to visit me! I am not here enough everyone wants to see me! Cousin Barrett came to play with me! and he brought his family too! Me and Gramma! We match! Me and Grampa! This is me in my Sunday outfit! I was really good in church! The very first thing I noticed was that me and Gramma did not smell the same, so I burped on both of us, and then we smelled just right, and exactly the same! I am sure that made Gramma happy. And I was a big helper in Primary, and sang the songs with all the other kids and even took a little nap! That night some cousins came over with their mom and dad and played and that was fun. On Saturday Gramma thought I needed something warmer to sleep in, as I didn't sleep very well. I was missing my parents of course, but Gramma bought me a snuggie snack and I started wearing it over my jammies at nite. I admit I have been sleeping much better, and usually wake up only for my morning bottle. My bedtime routine is Gramma gets me ready, I kiss Grampa and laugh at his funny faces, I kiss Adam, Gramma puts me in my snuggie sack and off to bed I go. I like sleeping time!
Yes I am a little gooey, but you can tell that I am happy~!
Having fun at Gramma's and Grampa's house!
Yep it is me Troy and I am visiting Gramma and Grampa! It did come as a surprise to me when I found out that I was the only one visiting, but I am having fun now! The visit started out well, with me and mom and dad and brother all in one room, sleeping, and I even got to sleep with mom and dad some! But then in the morning they all got in our car, without me! I thought they would be home soon, and would call out to them quite loudly so that they could hear it whereever they were to let them know they had forgot someone very important-me!! I even went on a semi hunger strike to show everyone how upset I was, and only ate a little and drank a little but by about 4 pm I decided grampa was right, it is easier to be happy on a full stomach, so I started eating again, as you can see. Gramma and Grampa are playing with me, and Kherrington, baby Oaklei and Aunti Heather came to play too!
Scott and Heidi at his farewell party. Good luck Elder Albright-off to Canada!
Beth and I with Mom at our little pre Christmas celebration. It is nice to have dinner with her in the main dining room.
Chris and Elaine, Paul and Karen, Doug and Megan, and Vern and Barbara. Mark and Karyn are still in Washington D. This year we again had the Albright Dinner Party, only instead of moving houses, we just had the dinner at Karen and Pauls, and all brought food. The Christmas exchange is always a blast, and everything was even more fun this year, as we had missed last year.
Our small but sweet and filled with love, family at home Christmas!
Adam and Heidi posing with Molly. Maybe they are not sleeping under the tree, but tickling works!
Gramma Martha can no longer come to our house, so we went to her place and had dinner in the dining room with her for our own little pre-Christmas celebration! She seemed happy that we were there with her.
At the Albright Family dinner, Dallin jumped in our family picture with Gramma and Grampa, and he seemed to blend right in! The family dinner was way fun, with yummy food and songs, and little great grandchildren and grandchildren dressing up and acting out the Nativity. It is fun to have all the cousins and family together. God bless us, everyone!
All the kids! How glad I am that we went up to Provo the week before Christmas so that we could all be together. Adam met us coming down from Idaho. We celebrated Christmas a week early together, and the early part didn't matter, just the together! The very best of times are always the together times. The only part we didn't plan well was we exchanged some presents, but didn't arrange for Adam to have anything to open there, better planning needed for next year! Watching the kids open the presents was so much fun.
"Since this is the time for goblins and bats, Halloween spirits, ghosts and cats, Weird Happenings and Witches Brew. These are the things I wish for you- May the only spirit you chance to meet Be the spirit of love and friendship sweet. May the onlyghost that comes your way, Be the Holy Ghost and by you may He stay!" author unknown
