Busy Boy


I've been exploring a lot lately. Here are some ways I was discovered in the act!

Black & White Dinner



Here Dad, try putting this cracker in your eye, it's great!



Uh oh! Liebe dog got my yogurt cup.



More for the dog.
Here go Liebs, try some veggies. I've tasted your dog food and know that stuff ain't good. Someday you'll grow big and strong like me.

Stinkin' Cute




Here i am thinkin' about my next slide run. Maybe I should go down backwards and upside-down. Look out X-Games 2019 here I come. I overheard my Mom and Dad say something about me being stinkin' cute.

Thanks Ellen for letting my Dad borrow your awesome Canon Rebel XT Digital SLR. It takes great picts. I hope Momma buys Dad the XTi (silver body) for Christmas, then we won't have to wait 1.5 seconds from the time the button is pressed till the shutter actually clicks. Now don't get me wrong, Dad says "happy snap" cameras have their place. But not if you actually want to record memories when they happen. Trying to recreate actual events just for photo is really awkward. Cheers.

The Slide




Okay folks. I've gotta tell you, there's this thing at the park called a slide. It's my favorite outside toy/event of the year. For all I care, my parents could leave me at the park and I'd do the slide over and over and over until the earth stopped rotating. I just can't get enough. Here's some new action shots my Dada, took of me this evening. It was cold and windy, but I didn't notice a thing.

Mawn-mow-mer














Dad and I were out with our mawnmomers the other day. I'm showing Daddy how to make it nice and even. I worked hard!

Pu'kins














Here I am investigating my first pumpkin patch ever! I got a good one. And it was organic. Mom's going to make it into some pumpkin muffins.

U.F.O.'s


UFO's do exist! Take it from me. This little guy at the International UFO Museum told me so.

First Train Ride Ever!

Mommy took me on my first Train Ride Ever last week! My good chum Lucy (I call her Bae-Bee) and her Mommy came, too. It was fun. Here I am contemplating my existence.

Spotting Ah-Bows.

I love to lie out in the grass and spot Ah-Bows as they fly over!

Bobcat & Sketti

I'm telling my Daddy how to run the Bobcat. He needed to move a bunch of dirt so we can build a rockwall out front.


Later, Mom was serving one of my favorites: Sketti. I wear protective goggles now... otherwise I get too much sauce in my eyes when I stuff the noodles in my mouth.

Room Deco

Here's some cool stuff Mom made for my walls!

Here I am going to a 3 alarm fire. That's my dog, Liebe, in the back.







Here I am flying to Mars. I love rocketships!















You need some big objects moved? I haul logs, cows, and doghouses.

'Bah-boo-bee-bee...ha-ha'

My Cousin's Impeccable Logic

in the car on the way somewhere this morning

Me: Bohn!, Bohn!, Bohn!

Cousin Ben: Do you think EJ's going to grow up to be a democrat?

Dee: I don't know, Ben. Why do you ask?

Cousin Ben: Because he keeps calling me 'Bomb' instead of 'Ben'. Democrats use the word 'bomb'. People in the military use bombs. Do you think EJ's going to be in the military?

Dee: I don't know, what do YOU think?

Cousin Ben: I think he's going to be a general because he's kind of bossy and generals HAVE to be bossy.

Water Bubby

Went swimmin' with the Fam last week. Here I am trying to convince Mama to get out of the way so I could dive into the kiddie pool.

This was at Grandma Viola's birfday party. Happy Birfday Grandma Viola!

Overseeing my Minions














Here I am overseeing my Mama-minion whom I slave-labor-forced (along with Dada) to lay my Royal Sod in the back yard. The work is finally finished! The Dada-minion finished the border the next day. It looks like this:

WATER!

Here I am using greywater from Mommy's New Rain Barrel to water the forsynthia we saved earlier this summer. We BOTH forgot to water the forsynthia ALL winter, but finally started giving it drinkies in May. And now look at it! Mommy is lucky to have such a good little helper like me.

Am I'm confuseded?

Apparently I'm experimenting with my Vocabelly. This morning Mommy asked me if I wanted some blueberries. I signed "yes" with a big smile and then pointed at the refrigerator said, "Bah....dun-dun!" I think I like this better than yesterday's version of 'blueberry'.

While Mommy was getting me some blueberries, I read on the bag that bah...dun-duns are loaded with antioxidants! This makes me especially happy, as I don't like free-radicals floating around in my little system, if I can help it.

2 new words

Yesterday Mommy and Daddy taught me two new words! They are some of my favorite foods.

bah-buhnee = strawberry
boo-hmph-hmpfh = blueberry

Saturday, July 01, 2006

Vocabelly

Here's a list of some of the words I'm saying out loud (instead of just signing).

Ghjuooosh = juice
Ooooghjsh = O's (cereal)
Wahh Hoo = waffle

Mum, mama = mommy
Babah = grandpa leland
Ghjuooghju = auntie julie
Baaa = ball
Chuck = truck, car, jeeps, heavy equipment
Ghjo = uncle joe or cousin joe
Eeeee Jhga = E.J. (me!)

Action Shot

This picture gives you an idea of how fast I am now!

The green stuff in the background is called "grass". We don't have any of our own yet, but Dada says "Soon, Little Guy, you'll be playing in your own field of green." Daddy is hard at work on the sprinkler system for the drought tolerant grass Mom and Dad are ordering soon. But I don't think any kind of grass is going to use less water than our backyard-of-plain-dirt.

Our puppy told me she's excited about the grass, too! She's going to make Daddy a whole bunch of presents on it. I don't know what they are, but I bet they're going to make Daddy very, very happy.

Bye-Bye Nuk-Nuk

Well, it's been 2 whole days. And I haven't had a Nuk-Nuk in 2 whole days! Mommy was worried about my teeth...since she heard how much braces cost these days. And Daddy put me to bed last night and couldn't find my Nuk-Nuk. But I didn't even notice because I was so tired.

Here's a picture of me with 'mud on my face, a big disgrace'. Mom & Dad have been letting me help with the landscaping. It's a lot of work to shovel dirt and eat mud, but I've been helping a lot! I helped Daddy fill in the trench for the sprinkler pipes. He hadn't put the pipes in yet, but I didn't think that would matter too much. Mommy sat me down by a hole that DID needed filled in after that. I worked on it a little bit, but then I practiced rock climbing on a pile of gravel. You can see why I was so tired.

Monkey Boy

Yesterday I'd climbed all the way up on top of the kitchen table and was squatting next to the fruit bowl with my hand stretched out ready to grasp another banana... when Mom and Dad came around the corner!

Shoot. Monkey Boy foiled again!

Me Love Spaghetties!

Folks, I make my video debut on my Dad's blog this week. Here's the link. Check me out!
The Notch Works

Home!


I was so excited to be home that I called Briggie & G-Pa right away.

In Washington

Thought you might like to see a few photos of me in Washington on my last trip.

Here I am driving a MOTORIZED 4-wheeler (borrowed from Briggie's neighbor). I didn't figure out the 'go' button much, though.

Here I am with my Uncle Big Foot (Joe). He taught me how to do pushups!

Happy Da-duh Day!














It's Mother's Day... Here's a picture of me with my DaDa and my Da-duh. (My Mama was hoping I'd be calling her 'Mama' by this holiday, but I'm holding out for next Christmas!) See how flexible I am?!

Toddler-Sized?














What do you mean DeWalt doesn't make toddler-sized power drills!?

Can't Wait

I can't wait until I get the kind with an engine.

Sigh. But I still love Technology.

Folkses-

No blogging lately...because our computer AND our digital camera are both on the fritzes. But as soon as they are fixed and sent back to us, I'll be back with many posts! Now, if you're bored, just check out my girlfriend's blog. She has a pretty exciting life.

Blueberries?


Blueberries? What blueberries? I haven't seen any blueberries!

Who is THAT chick? A recent scene.

Everybody is looking at me. I know they want me to show off my talents.

"EJ, where's your Dada?"

I point at Dada.

"EJ, where's Briggie?" (NW Grandma)

I point at Briggie.

"EJ, where's G-Pa?" (NW Grandpa)

I point at G-Pa.

"EJ, where's Liebe?" (Our doggie)

I point at Liebe.

"EJ, where's your Mama?"

I look around. Who in the WORLD are they talking about? I have no clue! There's Dada, there's Briggie, there's G-Pa, there's Liebe, and there's that one chick who changes my diaper, feeds me, plays with me all day, puts me down for naps, changes my diaper again, feeds me some more, reads me stories, hugs me and kisses me and gives me baths. But who in the world is this 'Mama' person they keep talking about?

Stuck in a Box

Now that I can pretty much walk, I've been getting into some interesting fixes! Here I am after I tried climbing over this box; I got my foot stuck in the top. I thought it was funny...at first.

Friday, March 10, 2006

Ready for Take Off!

This is back in the day when I used to have to hold on to someone every time I need to walk. But no more! Mommy says I'm officially walking today... although I still prefer my speed-crawl! Today I walked almost all the way from the car into story time at the library! (But I must admit, I was holding Mommy's finger.)

NW G-parents visit!

Hey folks-
I've been busy hanging out with my NW G-parents. They are fun. Just take a look see at all the fun stuff I got to do...

I went hiking with Mama, G-pa and Briggie. It was fun. Mama got tired, so I let her carry me up the hill.














Later, I got to wrassle this antelope! Don't worry, no antelopes were hurt in the filming of this event.

Here I am reading G-pa one of my favorite stories, Good Night Moon. I don't think he'd ever read it before. He was impressed at how I can turn the pages all by myself.

All in a day's work. Here I am testing out the new shelves we built in the laundry-room-with-the-sweet-new-retro-stripe. Unfortunately, Mama wouldn't let me stay up here for very long! I think I make a pretty good shelf tester though!

We took a very windy walk...and this is me with everyone (except Dada who was at work earning some bacon).
