Square Peg, Round Hole

Zayde, don't you know if you keep making that face, it'll stick that way!?!

Lots of my toys have different shapes and matching holes so I've been getting better at figuring out what pieces go where. Today, Zayde threw me off though. I've never seen a mouth, I mean hole, that big!

Prison Break

The Radutnys came over for a playdate today. It was raining pretty hard outside so we were cooped up inside. After a while it felt like we were in jail...

Not what Asher had in mind when he was told we were going to the bars

Asher didn't like having me as his cell-mate and kept trying to break out.

Go ahead, frisk me

I tried to liven things up by doing my best Stevie Wonder impression.

Here's lookin' at you kid

After a while, things starting looking up for Asher.

You've got to give to receive my sista!

Roni was a much better cell-mate and shared her bread and water with me.

Do they let trains in the Taco Bell drive thru?

Finally we busted out on the backs of a train and shopping cart. Now to make a run for the border. That bread and water just weren't cuttin' it!

Nic-picking

Lefties have all the fun!

Today I went on date number 9 with Leo Spiegel. Once again, our parents chaperoned. Sheesh, what do they think's gonna happen?!? I can't even give proper hugs. We had good clean toddler fun, tossing a ball around before some fine dining...

Mmmm...CBA. You jealous, Auntie Em?

Hug it Out

Awww shucks

Mommy and Daddy taught me how to give hugs and every time they do it they say, "awww." Well I've picked up the "awww" but haven't perfected the hug part. Here is a rare instance of me putting it all together and giving Baby Stella a hug. Most of the time I just put my head forward and say, "awww." I know, aren't I awww-dorable?

Double Wide

I'm ready for the digital TV transition!

I've got enough hair to use the plural of pigtail now! I like to wear 'em high on the hog...

Practice Makes Perfect

OK Bubbie, the next time a boy comes after me, I'll just play dead

Bubbie (and Zayde) came over today and taught me some new moves for my next playgroup wrestling match. They had me practice on Baby Stella. Wish they'd have let me go at her in the steel cage, er... pack 'n play.

Look Like You Mean It

Grandma was right, I am a bit cross-eyed!

Finally I've got sunglasses that fit! Mommy seems to be a lot happier about it than I am though. She doesn't know I'm auditioning for a part in Mean Girls 2.

Now You Know the Wrestler of the Story

Oh no, not the vulcan death grip!

Today we hosted playgroup (aka WWF Smackdown) and invited my BF Miles to join. How embarrassing! I'm wearing the same skirt 2 blog posts in a row.

This is why I don't wear skirts

Miles and I had fun wrestling. Usually, the protocol if for me to sit on him but this time he got me down and moved in for the pin.

Boy, this playgroup sure is a sausage fest!

The match turned in to an all out Royal Rumble -- me against the boys! They didn't fight fair, bringing pails and paci's.

I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.

Take a guess who got the final shot in.

It's All About Coordination

OK, adding the headband might make me a little too color coordinated today... blame Daddy for that one!

I'm referring, of course, to my outfit, not my motor skills. (Still need the cart to walk!) Thanks to Uncle Josh and Soon-to-be-Aunt Karen for the cute skirt and shirt combo. I'll skirt around the obvious pun here.

Quite Amused-eum

The anticipation is killing us

Today Karina took me to the Children's Museum with my 2 new friends, Lilly and Michael. Aren't we strapping in our strollers?

Ellie phone home

Times are tough right now so I made sure to check all the phonebooths for loose change. Reminds me of a joke... Why did the Jews wander in the desert for 40 years? Because somebody dropped a quarter.

 That pot reminds me of Zayde. Get it? Stew!

I really enjoyed the cooking exhibit where I learned to reach up and touch the stove. Can't wait to show Mommy and Daddy this trick.

Did someone call an exterminator, I mean, extinguisher?

Fortunately the fireman exhibit was next so I could learn how to extinguish the flames from the stove.

Now I know why she's called Car-ina

Next Karina taught me to drive with no hands. It was wheelie fun.

Can't wait 'til I'm old enough to play the real whack-a-mole!

I couldn't really figure out this version of Simon Says. I'm used to the Spanish version.

Mirror mirror on the wall... who's the only one in front of you?

Can you believe it? They had my favorite picture!!

This board ain't big enough for 3 queens!

Somehow I found time to work in a game of chess. I didn't win but it was my first time -- what do you expect from a rook-ie?

This toy was a bit dicey

Worked on my craps game a bit. Hoping to break the 4 hour 18 minute record just set in Atlantic City. Isn't that amazing. Wouldn't you just die?!?

Reminds me of the United terminal at O'Hare

I didn't quite make it thru this tunnel of lights. I guess you could say the opportunity passed Ellie. Get it... pastel-y? OK, I'm trying too hard right now.

They carted me at the door

The museum did have one exhibit that was familiar to me... the supermarket. Mommy and Daddy take me to Jewel almost every week and you've already seen how I can work the shopping cart so it should come as no surprise that this one was my favorite. Not sure why we didn't just come to this area first... I wish they'd put the cart in front of the horse.

Hairy Matter

Or is it the upside down Heimlich?

Mommy was a little confused... the mop top is supposed to go on the floor!

Frees-tyler

What do I think of this outfit? I'll hold my toungue.

Today we went to Indy to visit my Dirty Dancing buddy Tyler.

Ellie Sandwich

Continuing our sprint around the bases, we hugged a little.

My what a big... blue duck you have!

And then threw caution to the wind and went skinny-dipping. Well, Tyler skinny-dipped. I chubby-dipped.
