Chloe Post: Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! I had so much fun yesterday at Aunt Diane and Uncle John's Thanksgiving celebration... Aunt Diane makes really yummy food - my favorite was the pumpkin velvet soup - I love pumpkin!

Here I am with my Mommy and my Godmother, Aunt Diane. We're smiling because we're so happy to spend my first Thanksgiving together.

After dinner, we went for a walk to Rittenhouse Square to see the Christmas lights and then I took a little nap. Luckily, I woke up in time for dessert. Uncle John loves peanut butter (just like me) so Aunt Diane makes Peanut Butter-Pumpkin pies for him. Yummy!! Two great tastes that taste great together!

I slept really well after all the good food and visiting. Here I am this morning in my new, big girl crib.

Today, Mom-Mom and Mommy took me to meet Santa! I was a really good girl and Santa gave me these funny antlers to wear.

Yay for Christmas season!!

I am so thankful for all the people who love me, for toys and good books and for PUMPKINS.

Chloe Post: Report from the Big Crib

Yesterday, M & D built me a new crib. It is huge! I could seriously hold a card game in this bad boy. Last night, Mommy said it was time for me to sleep in my own room for the first time ever in my life. Daddy wasn't sure how it would work out, but that mattress is so comfy! I fell asleep at my usual time and slept thru the night... but, when I woke up (at 5:40am), I didn't know where I was and I was scared! I cried until Mommy came for me. She cuddled me and kissed my head and I almost fell back asleep and she tried to put me back in the crib! OH NO, I THINK NOT. So, I cried more until she took me in to bed with her and Daddy... but, I was not really interested in sleeping. Daddy (aka GRUMPALINA) was unsympathetic, but Mommy made me a bottle which I sucked down at the speed of sound before falling asleep in between them.

Final Chloe Assessment: Comfy crib, appreciate the ambience, but it better not interfere with my ability to get my own way.

Final Mommy Assessment: Hey, man - she stayed in there all night and slept thru... so, even though she woke up 1hr 20min early, I am declaring it a victory.

Final Daddy Assessment: No report - still asleep at press time.

Chloe Post: Thank Goodness we found the Magic Camera to Computer Cord that No One will Let me Chew on

GoodNESS. I have been itching to share new photos of me in my new home, but M & D took forever to find the freakin' cord! Sheesh!!

Here I am resting with Daddy... we were taking a break from unpacking. See the pretty new couch? It turns into a bed for Grams and Granpa when they come to visit me. It looks tasty, but M & D don't let me chew on it, so I can't tell you for sure.

Lately, M & D have been letting me try all sorts of new food (I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER) and the other day, I wanted to gnaw on an unpeeled orange. When M realized I was sawing into it with my two powerful teeth, she took me into the kitchen to "show me what's inside." She peeled a piece and gave it to me. I was unimpressed. I preferred this piece, with the peel still on it. But, M & D eventually took it away. They suck. So do eggs. Eggs are gross.

Today, I was helping Daddy build our table. I am a good helper. Like earlier today when M & D were building my new crib and I was lubricating the screws for them by hiding them in my mouth. I'm not sure why they freaked out so much. They are so over dramatic.

I'm so glad we found that cord so I could share these photos with you - I love my new house!!

Mommy Post - I'm skeered.

I have reached the age where Pop Culture has become confusing. Someone needs to explain to me what The Hills is all about and who the hell Spencer and Heidi are and why they hate Al Roker. Did you see the stuff that Spencer tweeted about Al?

I don't know who these Speidi people are, but I'm afraid of them. Chloe may not play with anyone who stars on The Hills. Or Michael Vick.

A Classic

In honor of Sesame Street turning 40, I thought I would share one of Chloe's favorite YouTube videos. She enjoys Elmo's song, but the Cookie Monster really gets her giggling:

Chloe post: Moving!

Whew! Thank goodness Grams and Grandpa came to help us move or Mommy and Daddy might have packed me in a box for real!

Now, Mommy and Daddy just need to unpack the rest of these boxes and we will be golden...
