Big Ballers

Check out my armpit, er.. ball pit

Today was date #12 with Leo J (whom, I just learned is on Facebook so Brody better not get too comfortable in our relationship). We had a ball in his basement.

Over the weight limit by about 2 kids

Things got a little Furley when Henry joined us in the ball pit though.

Is that not the creepiest dead Elmo in the background?

We got tired of confining the mess to the Pack N Play so we set up a bowling alley. I'll spare you all the bowling puns. But I will say that, when it was time for clean up, we went on strike.

Aren't they glowing!

After keeping us waiting for what felt like forever, Uncle Noah finally popped the question to Sara last week. Tonight we celebrated with a little L'Chaim. They're not wasting any time from here on out though. The wedding is already scheduled for February! (Do you get the post title now?)

There was no stealing Uncle Joshie's attention away from the dessert table

Once again, I stole the thunder of the guests of honor. Sorry, can't help this shayna punim!

Chip Off the Old Block

Let's just hope they don't open up America's Next Top Model to boys... if they do, I'm in trouble!

This morning, Mommy and Daddy took me over to the Blocks on the way to the Children's Museum. We had so much fun playing with Brody's toys while he napped, we decided to ditch the museum. Then when Brody woke up, we rekindled our romance. (We're in a relationship on Facebook, ya know.)

So this is what it would be like with 2 kids?!

Mommy had to separate us after things started to get PG-13.

Now I know why Spiedi was going to name their kid, Dunk. Ok, no, I still don't.

After playing in their condo for a while we took a tour of the rest of their building and made a pit stop in the gym. There we worked up an appetite with a little shake and bake followed by jam.

Thanks for Giving Me Your Attention

Hey, were those cupcakes double wrapped?!?

G.A.S. and G.U.G. hosted Thanksgiving dinner again this year. One of our traditions is to sing to all the late-November Birthdays. Cousin Ryan helped his Uncle Brad blow out the candle. (Another tradition is family Jeopardy which ended this year in a disputed tie. The Pechter/Ellis' had a guaranteed win if they bet nothing in Final Jeopardy but Daddy goaded Brad into betting it all. Noone got it right so we were left with zero. Except for the Farbers, that is, who scored -300.)

Maddie about you

I met my cousin Maddie for the first time. She's a cutie patootie. Believe it or not, she's never had her hair cut -- her bangs just grow perfectly to the brow.

Did you know your daddy once hacked into his high school computer system to change his grades?

Maddie and I wasted no time sharing some QT and gossiping about our crazy families.

Who you callin' a piggy?!?

Cousin Brad showed me what it's like to be in his airplane when he's flying. Someone pass the barf bag!

This must've been what that NWA pilot who overshot MSP by 200 miles looked like

Clearly Maddie is not as exciting a passenger as yours truly. (I was gonna go with the caption, "Just flew in from Vegas and boy are my arms tired" but that was too easy.)

Sara likes to lean in close to try and hear what I'm saying. Little does she know it's mostly babble.

Cousin Sara, as always, was very attentive. Hmm, where have I seen that outfit before? Note to Cousins Rob and Lisa... nothing gets by the Goldman fashion police!

I feel good!

Cousin Ryan continued to edumacate me, this time showing me how to work the remote. Unfortunately, it's for the TV, not the James Brown figurine.

Just a widdle piddle

Uncle Josh, or Joshie as I call him, got so excited to see me, he peed his pants.

How did the fat from your thighs get on mine?

Cousin Rob has lost so much weight, he's borrowing my clothes now.

She hit the flo...

Soon-to-be-Aunt Sara danced with me to that Apple Bottom Jeans song that cousin Brad kept playing.

Wonder if they'll be wearing these yarmulkes to Uncle Noah and Aunt Sara's wedding?

After listening to that song for the 10th time, we all started to go a little crazy.

Charlie's Trotters

For the second year in a row, we did the Lincolnwood Turkey Trot. This time Daddy stepped up to the 10k and did it in 46:20. And, since he was registered as a female, he took 20th place for his gender. I just did the 5k walk. Keeping up with Great-Grandpa Irv was enough to wipe me out.

Possible Spasiba

And I shall name her... Stella!

Today we had a playdate with the Radutnys. Their new place is great. Tons of room to run around and make a mess. And very close to the elevator. Roni and Asher were very nice sharing their toys with me. Although I only had eyes for this doll.

This used to be harder before Asher stopped eating

CUV got a quick workout in before dinner.

Future boyfriends beware!

Just a couple of Daddy's girls. (Dos ve-dadya!)
