I hope you enjoyed that video of me singing "Row Your Boat." As you can see, I don't know the whole thing yet. And so far, I really only sing it when I'm rocking in the little old rocking chair that used to be Moms' when she was a little kid.
The first weekend in February the Snowdenschroeders came over. It was super cool because I got to see Jack! I have to admit that we still pretty much ignore each other when we're together, but we have moments of fun. Moms thinks in another few months we'll be thick as thieves and getting into all kinds of trouble together.
We also played with the microwave door until Moms became concerned that someone's fingers could get smashed...Moms = Lame
We went for some rides around the living room with Buzz Lightyear
One day at school we were to bring our favorite stuffed animal--I didn't really have one so Moms packed up my cool gorilla from Mr. Jeff...and now I go EVERYWHERE with him!
The second weekend of February Granny and Gramps joined us at OMSI and I showed them my favorite stuff in the Discovery Room. Granny and I had lots of fun in all of the exhibits.
After OMSI, we went to Little Big Burger for lunch. I was suspiciously not hungry...and it turns out that was because I had a little flu bug. It only lasted about 36 hours, and I was back to my old self by Monday...well, Sunday night really...unfortunately for Moms she had it within a few days, herself.

...and when there was no meat, we ate fowl and when there was no fowl, we ate crawdad and when there was no crawdad to be found, we ate sand.

Hamburgers are Hilarious!
Me with a flu. Kind of pathetic.
But I rallied within 12 hours of that picture being taken! With my Heatmeiser Hair.
As has been established previously, I am kind of a messy eater. Even more so when I intentionally put spoonfuls of yogurt on my head.
I have a new thing: I like to put on my parents' shoes. Here I am in Moms'.
For President's Day weekend, we went to the Novinger Family Red Cabin with Auntie Feather, Uncle Bobbob, and Cousins Anne, Ami, Cooper, Lucas, Jackson, Rhonda, Dylan, Miranda & her friend Amy. Saturday night we had dinner at Chico's Pizza (yum) and Sunday while we were on our way out of town we stopped at the beach. It was a beautiful clear day but cold and Moms made me wear my boots on the beach so I wasn't quite sure what to make of it.

Motocross--something Moms assures me I'll never get to do in real life.
So, uhh...You, uh, come here often?

On President's Day we went and checked out Playdate, a new place to hang in NW Portland. It's a super cool indoor play structure with lots of tunnels and slides, and a room where balls can be shot out of cannons and a light up floor that you can dance and play on. It also has a restaurant with coffee, beer, wine and food for my parents. All in all, it was a good time for all of us.
Moms and I on the slide. She wore jeans, which made us go kinda slow. This is an important fact to remember for later.
Head first down the slide with Pops: he knows I love the daredevil life!
Later that afternoon, Granny came over to play with me and she made a yummy stew. Grandpa stayed down in Salem, and I missed him, but Granny is super fun. She plays and plays and plays with me. It is the best!

On Thursday the 24th it snowed in Portland. It snowed a lot, but even up at our house there wasn't much more than an inch of snow on the ground. Nonetheless, the schools and daycares all closed down...but not the courthouse! (Never the courthouse). SO: Pops went to work while Moms and I hung out around the house.
Moms packed me up in the Deuter for a walk around the snowy neighborhood
We had a lot of fun looking at all the houses covered in snow...
...unnnnnttilllllll I crashed out.
After my nap, I suited back up to build a snowman!
The snowballs were WAY cooler.
There wasn't enough snow for a proper man, so Moms and I threw snowballs at the tree instead.
On the last Saturday of the month we went back to Playdate. This time, Moms was wearing wool pants because she had to go do some volunteer time for the Classroom Law Project after our outing. What she didn't appreciate was the difference in slide speed that this simple change of pants would create. As you'll see from the video below, Moms decided to tape us going down the slide...but we went so fast that she quickly lost her camera-woman skills and instead focused on holding on to me and the camera. Pops was watching us from behind and says we caught about 8 inches of air on the slide which I thought was awesome, but Moms' tailbone begs to differ. She's STILL complaining about it!!
