Self Portrait

Hanging out on the back stoop playing with mom's iphone - listening to some Darrin Shaffer tunes and playing a few rounds of Angry Birds - then checking out the hipstamatic app. I captured this image of my jeans just before I ripped them off to take a spin on my new slip n slide - life is good.

Knock Knock

It is difficult to fully understand how a 'Knock Knock' joke works, but I do like sitting by myself and repeating over and over:

"Knock Knock"

"Knock Knock"
"Who's there?"

"Knock Knock"
"Who's there?"

Now THAT is funny! At least it makes mom and dad laugh!

My First Reported Dream

This morning I decided to tell my daddy about my dream, for the first time:

"I was in the store. I had on my PJs in the store. I was at home. Daddy and I went down into the basement; there was cake down there."

New Things

I've found something new and fun to do: when my daddy arrived home after aikido class three days ago, I ran across the yard toward him, opened my arms wide, and gave him a huge hug as he climbed down out of the van. I'd never done this before, and we both loved it!


I can now climb the stairs in our house two at a time. Daddy thinks I am growing tall, and quickly too!

The Moon is Broken

Tonight, I looked at the waning crescent in the west, and I put my finger on it; I said, "The moon is broken, daddy!" Then daddy played a lovely song for me on the computer:
