Friday, December 21, 2007

Row, row, row your carrot?

Bubba singing recently:

"...row row row your boat

gently down the streaaeeeaamm

merrily merrily merrily merrily

life is but a dream...carrot."

Toddler Logic

Overhead, whilst Mom and Bubba were picnicking outside:

Bubba: Why did Liebe poop over there?
(Pointing at a pile of poo several feet away from us.)

Mama: Well, that's just what dogs do. They poo in the grass.


Bubba: We should buy her a potty.

Long pause.

Bubba: She could flush it with her foot.

Who's to blame?

Today we went to my cousin's pool party. They just shut down the kid's pool as we arrived. I guess some kid had an accident (in his pants) while swimming. But we had a good time anyway after all they had chocolate cake and cool presents.

Tonight when Dad was putting Bubba to bed, Dad asked:
Did you have a good time at the party?

Bubba: Yeah! But we couldn't swim in the kid pool?

Dad: Yeah. Because it was closed.


Bubba: (Uncle) Matt pooped in the pool?

Dad: No, it wasn't Uncle Matt, it was some other kid whom we don't know that had the accident.

Bubba: It was Uncle Brett.

Dad: (uncontrollable laughter)

Bubba at a previous pool party. The water was good that day.

Whenever We Sneak a Snack...

Whenever we grownups sneak a snack before tucking Bubba in for the night, he says, "What I do smell?" [Cute word order.]

That's a good nose.

Get the Camera Dada!

I attacked Mom. Real. Good.

Princess Sissy

Lovin' me my first book.

Hi folks. I made up a new game the other day. Here's what you need to get started:
1. One pair of puffy soccer ball slippers
2. One five iron from Dad's set of clubs
3. One soccer ball
4. Two strong arms
5. An unmatched competitive warrior attitude - like that of a 3 year old
6. One dog to referee

Overheard in the Kitchen

After being served some pumpkin pie, Bubba says, "Mama, gimme some whip!"

Overheard at the Library

After getting into the car to go home...

Mama: Are we ready to go? Okey dokey, Smokey!


Bubba: Okey dokey, Smoke-mama!

New Bed

A couple weeks ago I (the big brother) got a new bed. It's great because I fit just perfectly in the cabinet below the mattress. Sometimes Dad gives me a flashlight so I can read or play games under the bed. Gotta love it.

A Different Kind of Mail

You know you have a toddler boy when you find a postage stamp on the toilet rim. Do you think he was trying to send a different kind of mail?

All I can think about these days is TRAINS. Dad scored me this set at a garage sale. Go Dad!

Message to my UBF

Dear Uncle Big Foot...

While Mom was on the Phone

During Mom's 15 minute survey with GEICO comparing auto insurance rates...

I snuck out of my room.
I snuck into Mom's room.
I got the bassinet and pulled it over to the dresser.
(Sissy wasn't in it.)
I climbed into the bassinet even though two of the wheels had fallen off.
I opened Dad's top drawer.
I took out his bottle of Gold Bond's Medicated Foot Powder.
I had some fun.

Mom caught me.
This is what her bed looked like.

And her floor. You can tell how much fun I was having running all over the place.

Then we had this conversation.

Mom: "Bubba! What are you doing?!"
"You are in trouble BIG TIME!"

Bubba: "Big time?"
Mom: "BIG time."



My New Trick

Here I am performing my new trick! THUMB CHEWING! -Sissy

Mom: I don't know, where do you think he is?
Bubba: He's sleepin' in Tidmouth Sheds on the Island of Sodor.


Bubba: I LOVE Thomas the Tank Engine. And I love Lucy. I love to take Lucy to the 'tanical Gardens.

Wednesday, August 08, 2007


Here I am with my long lost girl friend Mikayla June (MJ), from Florida. She was on summer travel and decided to visit. We had a great time except when we were screaming at each other for various reasons that 2.5 year olds do.

I'm Two!

Ladies & Gentlemen, maybe you've heard the news: I'M TWO YEARS OLD NOW! Lookout, this show is gettin' more and more fun by the minute.

Saturday morning I awoke to something totally new. Streamers hanging in the bedroom doorway. Mom and Dad put them up while I was sleeping. They're so much fun to run through!

Saturday afternoon my whole family came over for the celebration - it was a blast. Mom made me a Pumpkin Pie (I ate the biggest piece ever of all time!). I got lots of presents including a Tennis Racket from Grandpa, a wooden tool set from the folks, and a Tiger Flashlight. I love to yell "Get it! Get it! and Bark! Bark!" and watch my Liebe Dog chase the light around the room - barking and jumping. Maybe Dad will post a video.

Here's some picts for your perusal. Ciao!

Punkin Pie, Happy Birfday, Trains & Applesauce

Well the holidays are over, but the great memories live on. A few things that made an impression on me are as follows:

1. Punkin Pie (I ask for some at least 3 times a day, sometimes even for a midnight snack when i should be sleeping, but nobody seems to have any.)
2. Trains, Trains, Trains (Thomas & Friends are the best!)
3. Ice Fickles
4. Uncle Joe (My buddy - he picked us up at the airport in Portland)
5. Zanzone! My cousin.
6. Auntie Stephanie - she's fun to make forts with out of G-Ma Briggie's couch pillows.
7. Curious George stuffed animal. Cute when he laughs, but not so much when he shakes - wigs me out.
8. The 18 inches of snow when we returned to Albuquerque. I still have a snow ball in the freezer.
9. Uncle David and applesauce. You fed me applesauce, I'll never forget you!
10. Special spoon that Aunt Susie made for me in the dishwasher (shrink to fit I guess).
11. Mommy & Daddy went on at least three dates when we were in Washington, I had fun with G-Ma Briggie, but I'm glad Mommy & Daddy always come home.
12. Almost forgot - Flying the Boeing 737's to and from PDX & ABQ. I'm getting pretty good and landing those suckers without making the other pilots sick.
13. New pillows, made by Grandma Debbie.
14. Wrasling with my cousin Ben.
15. Removing the ornaments from the tree. I'm so intrigued by them.
16. Lights! Lights! Christmas lights on all the houses.
17. And last, but not least: Happy Birfday Baby Jesus! My favorite song of the season.
