My Daddy left for Atlanta when Grandma and Grandpa left to go back home to Ohio. So, Mommy and I went from a full house...to just us two. For some reason, Mommy was more sad than usual when Daddy left. So was I.
Well, on Monday, the FedEx guy came to our door and we heard a 'plop' on the front porch. Mommy and I were on our way up for nappy time when we heard it and Mommy figured it was Daddy's work stuff again. After I fell asleep, she snuck downstairs to get his package, and guess what!!!! It wasn't Daddy's work stuff, it was FLOWERS! Daddy sent Mommy a dozen red roses packed in a gorgeous box and a red vase to match the kitchen. How sweet is he! Mommy got all teary. (Big surprise.) and our kitchen has smelled incredible ever since.
Isn't my Daddy just so good to us!!?!?!? I love you Daddy! love, TJ
Grandma and Grandpa Budic came to visit me! We went for walks and ate grilled cheese and I don't think I even cried one bit except when I had to take a nap.
One day, we went to the Lazy 5 Ranch. We got to see all the cool animals come right up to the car. I could actually see them this time because my car seat is now facing forward. FINALLY! I'm nearly 1 and I fit the weight requirement, so I can see forward and it makes a HUGE difference. Now my Mommy and Daddy can see my beautiful face while they're driving. Hoorah!
Anyway, back to the Lazy 5 Ranch. My favorite animals were the ones with huge horns. They tried to stick their heads in the window to lick us, but couldn't because their horns got in the way. Oh! And on the way into the front gate, two ladies got in a fight. They were yelling at each other and stuff. It was kind of exciting...until they stopped. No punching took place. Oh well. Hahaa.
Grandpa and Grandma walked me around the couch a million times because that's what I like to do now. They just held my hands and let me walk wherever I wanted. I kicked my toys and my Backyardigans ball all over. It was great!
I miss my Grandma and Grandpa and Grammie and Poppy or whatever I end up calling everyone. Love you, dudes!!!!

I have my first cold. Not bad for being almost 1 year old! But it's a yucky cold, just the same. I think it's kinda cool that I can blow bubbles in my nose though. Green bubbles too! I have so much snot, that if I breathe out, a green little bubble appears. Very appetizing during dinner when we're all sitting around the table eating. Yummy! I've left boogie trails all over Mommy today. I'm sure she loves it. I haven't been in a bad mood at all though, even though I'm sick. Not bad, eh?
I experienced another type of bubble the other night during my bath-a. All of a sudden, Mommy heard a noise she never heard before...and then saw little bubbles popping up from my little butt. I laughed at the noise it made and it tickled my butt when my little farties hit against the bottom of the tub. Hehehehe! Farting is cool!
The best kind of bubbles are church bubbles! I get to play with bubbles at church with the girls that play with me during the service. They're all really nice and I like to try and grab each round bubble as it floats by me. Then I squint when it pops. Silly me!
Well, gotta go catch my zzzzzzz's! Love, TJ-farty-pants

Today, we got to pick out our pumpkins for Halloween! We got a little one for me, and a big one for Daddy to carve. Cool, huh! There were tons and tons of pumpkins to look through and I got lots of pictures taken by them. So far, I love Halloween...and I don't even know what candy is yet!
I forgot to add something to yesterday's blog. Mommy and Daddy and I saw a big black snake when we were driving. So, what did Mommy do? She pulled over so she could get out and investigate!!! (We were in a to-be-built development so there was no one around...don't worry!)
When she got out of the car, she saw the big black snake up close and it had black and white designs on it's belly. It was so cool.
We're not sure if his name was Snakey McSnakes or Roger. He wouldn't tell us.

I like to ski on my hands. I take books or cds (as seen in the pic) and I just slide all over the house with them. It is so much fun. My Mommy wonders what goes on in my head. : )

I had such a good time in Cleveland on the East Side and the West Side that I almost didn't want to come home! I got lots of prizes and kisses and hardly cried at all...seriously! My Mommy and Daddy missed me so much and it took me a few seconds of looking them over when we picked them up from the airport before I let out a big grin. Mommy was scared there for a second. She thought I forgot about her. But I didn't. You should see my feet and hands. They are lookin' pretty yucky from my scabs and all. Those blisters took a toll on me, but I have been feeling better for a good while now.
I learned a new trick from Grammie while my 'rents were in Chicago. It's called "soooo big!" and I can do it really well. When someone says "how big is tj?" or "how big are you?" to me, I respond with a great big smile and throw my arms up in the air like it's my job!
As you can see in the pictures, I do it in my high chair, in my babyjogger, and everywhere else too. Sometimes, I get so excited, I just throw my arms up without anyone saying "so big" or asking me how big I am. I am just too cool.
Last night was my first night in my own crib in over a week and I really liked it. Thankfully, I slept through the night so Mommy and Daddy could have a break. I think I'm out of my "middle of the night wake-up trend". It was just a phase. I promise to stop doing that now.
It was a beautiful day today in Charlotte. When I woke up at 7am (yep! 7am!), it was in the 50s and I had to wear a hooded jacket for my morning walk with Mommy. It felt great. Then, Mommy and Daddy took me for a ride in the babyjogger at 6 and it was beautiful outside. I welcome the fall weather to Charlotte. Now, if it would just rain....
Love you all! Love, TJ "So Big"

This is me in my "comfy suit". Mommy put me in it because it has footies attached and it was cold in the morning when we went for our walk. I am still pretty sick, but I'm through the worst of it. Isn't that wonderful? My blistery rash looks a bit worse, but my mood is better and I am not in so much pain. Gosh, I'm glad this is almost over. I don't really feel like writing much more. I need my sleep because I am a growing boy. Love, TJ
