I was a Mr Crabbypants today. My Mommy tickled me all day long and finally, I let out a long overdue laugh. And then, I just couldn't stop laughing. Daddy made monkey noises at me again, and I just think he's the silliest guy when he does that.
I got a new toy...a lion walker!!! How cool is that! Daddy got it for me at Target on our family field trip. I really walk when someone holds my hands and steadies me! Isn't that cool? Mommy and Daddy think it is too...but I don't think they're as eager for me to walk as I am. I'm already into EVERYTHING and they've had to rearrange the house a million times for me already. Too bad for them!
Wait til you read tomorrow's blog. It is gonna be the coolest one ever! Promise not to let you down! Love, Little Man T

We had a great visit to Cleveland this past long weekend. However, we still had to drive the long way home to Charlotte. Personally, I'm not a fan of sitting in a carseat for long periods of time until my little butt goes numb. "They" say I won't remember it. “They've” been saying that about a lot of things lately...and I’m not sure I believe them anymore.
Like I was saying, we had a long drive home and we actually broke the 8-hour drive time record. It was brilliant. Brilliant! What we didn’t know was, we had a surprise welcome home party when we arrived! Mommy and Daddy walked in (Daddy with Scootie, and Mommy with me) and we were all dead tired. Daddy’s plan was to unload and clean the car…Mommy’s plan was to wash me up, feed me, let me crawl out my frustrations and put me to bed. Surprise!!! Instead, we were thrilled to see THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of ants marching throughout the kitchen, pantry and laundry room. Thankfully, they had only gotten into Scooter’s dog food and nothing else in the pantry yet, but it was a sight to see! Let me tell ya!
So picture this, Mommy held me in one arm (and yes, I was very squirmy wormy) and the vacuum hose in the other hand. She alternated between 3 holes the ants were pouring in from while Daddy ran to the store for every single ant killing thing they had. Daddy then spent the next zillion hours spraying, killing, scrubbing, sucking, pounding, trapping and cleaning the floors and ant holes. You know what? He didn’t even get mad or frustrated. He just saved our lives one ant at a time. What a man!!!
Know what though? Those ants allowed me to stay up until almost midnight. How cool is that!!! I love you, anties! Thank you for sacrificing your lives for me!

This morning, Daddy and Anj ran in a race in uptown Charlotte. Mommy and I drove separately so we could leave later. Turns out, we left about 42 seconds too late because when we got uptown, the orange-plastic-vest-wearing officials had just blocked off the roads. There were about 90 dumptrucks lined up along the road and about half the streets were one-way only. Mommy assured me we'd be okay and that even though it was her first time driving in the city alone, she had it under control. And she did.
Well, once we drove around and around again without finding ANY place to park, Mommy finally got ahold of Daddy on the phone. Of course, it was following the race. We were very sad that we missed Daddy's and Anj's entire race and finish. Mommy failed to know that TODAY was the day that the Panther's practice was open to the public and they had all sorts of games and free things going on at the stadium...hence no parking anywhere!!! Well, let me end this story abruptly by saying that Mommy and I drove home without seeing Daddy or Anj at all. We got home and had breakfast and playtime when Daddy and Anj came home. They both ran really well and each won a Panther's jersey with their last names and favorite number on the back. Anj decided to give Mommy her jersey and had Mommy's last name and favorite number printed on the back. How cool is that!?!? Want to know something cheesy? Daddy's and Mommy's favorite number is the same...#7, and their last name is the same, so they will have MATCHING jersies to wear to Panther's football games. Cute, huh!
I got a new hat at BabyGap today. Don't I look cool? I think so! Check it out! Oh, by the way, this coming week's 7-day forecast is as follows: 97* 98* 97* 99* 97* 99* 98*...that's HOT!
love, tj bojangles

Anjanette came to visit us at our house for a few days and she and Mommy took me swimming today. Anj held me and played with me in the big people pool (indoors) while Mommy did a pool workout. Then, we went outside to the kid's pool with all the slides and stuff. They greased me up with SPF 50...and yet, they wonder why I still look like Casper the Friendly Ghost! Anyways, I kicked and tried to swim in the shallow water. Mommy never let go of me, of course, but I thought I could swim alone. It was cool. Then, I started looking down into the water at my wrinkling toes. I put my face closer and closer, and then dipped it into the water. I came up with water dripping off my nose and made a funny face. I jumped with excitement and tentatively did it again. Then once again. Mommy and Anj were astonished and a little worried at first. They looked at each other and said, "Did he just do that???" Then when I liked it, they laughed. After the third time, Mommy said no more. She ain't no fun! : )
I took a great nap afterwards. So did they. Then I ate vegetable beef stew. Mmmmm. Well, enough talk of my pool adventure. I gotta go to bed. I'm a growin' boy!

I have my 4th tooth already! I was laughing at Daddy yesterday morning, and Mommy said "Whoa!" when she noticed my new sharp little tooth. Now my smile is even more adorable! I got a balloon to celebrate...my Mom is a big spender. She got me a free balloon for pushing a hard tooth out of my soft gums. Does she know how much that hurts? Something tells me she gets it...
I have tried lots of new foods lately. Spaghetti is amazing. I chew very carefully and will not open my mouth for more until I am done. What a great eater I am! I ate chicken and vegetables the other day and my Mommy said it smelled like someone forgot to put deodorant on. I'm not sure what that means, but I actually liked it. Beef macaroni is excellent too. I make funny faces when I eat new foods, but I hardly ever spit any out. The other day, I had a huge mouthful of peas and I sneezed...ALL over Mommy and all over myself. I laughed a lot and tried to do it again on purpose. I couldn't figure out how to fake-sneeze. However, I have MASTERED the fake cough. Whenever I cough for real, the next 10 minutes of my time is spent doing the fake cough. It's so fun. You should try it sometime! coughcough. coughcough. My Mommy imitated my fake cough in the car with Grandma and Grandpa and Daddy, and I belly laughed for a long time. It was great. Mommy kept on coughing and I kept on laughing.
I share a lot with Scooter. And he shares with me. I like his dirty yellow nasty ball. But I let him read my books. I am reading all sorts of books about animals. Do you know what a jacana is??? Do you know what a vicuna is? Grandpa told me people used to wear vicuna coats. Look those animals up online...right now. Do it! Go! Right now. : ) Love, TJ
Obviously this is NOT a picture of me...but this is what I am most likely going to be for Halloween. YODA!!! Can't you picture my cute little self in this costume? My Mommy is ESPECIALLY looking forward to holidays since I came to Earth. : ) Funny lady, huh!
Well, here I am. The future of America! You shouldn't be afraid. I am going to make a difference in this world. Maybe by curing a disease or maybe just by making a difference in someone else's life...but whatever it is that I do, my Mommy and Daddy will forever be proud of me. The end.
