Happy November! The month started with the conclusion of Grandma Karen's visit. That same day, we went to celebrate Auntie Feather's 29th birthday with Grandpa Jeff and Granny V, Uncle Bob, and Uncle Bob's parents, Mr. Dale and Miss Frances. I got formula, they got Cioppino. This is seeming increasingly unfair to me.
I've been to two more restaurants. On Saturday the 7th, Moms and I braved the rain and met Miss Christy for lunch at Elephant's Deli. The rain wasn't half as bad as the crowds. Seriously--fights almost broke out over seats in that place. It was nice and loud, though, which Moms likes in case I want to holler out. Miss Susan stopped by, but it was SO CRAZY in there she didn't stay long. Hopefully we'll get to chill again soon. That night, Moms, Pops, and I went to Caffe Mingo. This is one of my parents' favorite restaurants in the Portland area and I can see why. The people were very nice, and the food looked good. I really think I'd like it if they'd only let me try! Since I now officially have my TWO FRONT BOTTOM TEETH I don't see why I can't!

My Maiden Highchair Voyage
On Sunday November 8th I went to my first SEATTLE SEAHAWKS game. Cousins Kevin and Katy Jo joined us on this adventure. For those of you who don't know the area, getting there involves about a three hour drive up and back. All things considered, I did pretty well, but I admit I fussed a bit in the car to and fro. (Could it be those teeth coming in? Or sheer boredom? Who knows...) Moms and Pops once again marveled at the one thing in the world that always makes me smile: JT's "Sexy Back." I tell you what, people, all Moms has to do is cue that song up on her iPhone and I'm as happy as can be. Ask Kevin and Katy Jo--they couldn't believe it!
Oh, and by the way, I'm happy to report that My Seattle Seahawks defeated the dastardly Detroit Lions (after a scary first quarter) 32-20. Gooooooooo Hawks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pre-game Snooze...would have lasted longer if someone didn't drop her cell phone against the door (KJ!)
SeaGals make me Thirsty...for fake milk, though. Weird.
Pops made sure the Bjorn was Geared Up for Gametime
Qwest Field was still PLENTY LOUD, even with my ear protection
Team Introductions Were Cool!
The Hawks regained the lead, so I was safe to take a 3rd Quarter catnap
Refueling for the Second Half
Post-game nap in the car was going just fine until a wreck up ahead forced Pops to stop the car. Car stops, Eyes open!
Home Sweet Home, but check out my sweet Hawks threads: Thumbs Up!
2009 has been an excellent year for Rice Cereal
Hustle up with that spoon, Pops!
By mid-November I was in for a big change. Starting on November 12, I am a full-time attendee at DAYCARE! Moms and Pops take me to St. James Child Development Center in downtown Portland. Pops likes it because lots of my parents' friends took their kids to the same place, and Moms likes it because she's a short walk away. Also, it's a small world--Moms' cousin Brandi's friend works there, so I get the VIP treatment every day!
Pops lets me check out St. James on my first day
DAYCARE HAS FIVE EXERSAUCERS!!!!!
I love raspberries

It was time to quit when I started to eat the props
My 6 Month Dr. Appt--I won't stay on my back long enough for an identical picture
Now that I'm a half, I had to go to the doctor's again. I am now 19 pounds, 9 ounces (look out, Emmitt!) I'm 27 and a quarter inches long, and my head is 18 inches around. My weight is in the 82nd percentile, height 77nd, and head is 92nd. Maybe that picture wasn't all about perspective...Huge head!!!!
Sunday Night Football-Jack and his parents came over...

Jack is so psyched, he's doing a jig! I'm excited, too!
