I am back in school and I am so happy! Yesterday Mommy went to class with me and we had such a good time. I liked meeting all my new classmates and really enjoyed our lesson. Today Grandpa Don took me to school and dropped me off. Today was no parents allowed! I had a good time and when Grandpa Don came to pick me up I was the 0nly kid there not crying. Why would I cry? I was having so much fun!

Tonight we had pizza for dinner. It was so yummy that I ate two big pieces and then let out a big burp. I am such a boy!

It is Mommy's birthday weekend so we are going to be doing a lot of celebrating, yay!

It was so great to be back in my old school and classroom today! Mommy went in for a meeting with my teacher and me and Cooper went with her. We were walking down the hall to my room when I saw my old assistant teacher, Miss Janine. I got all excited and started waving to her. She came over and talked for a bit, she won't be my teacher this year, but I bet I will see a bunch of her.

Then we got to my class. My teacher Miss Carol was so happy to see me and the feeling was mutual! She told Mommy that she was so glad to have me back in her class, it is nice to be loved :) Mommy gave her a little talking to about being more strict with me this year, I didn't like the sound of that much. I played with my new assistant teacher and my PT while they all talked. It was so much fun, I can't wait to do it everyday!

Guess what? This year there is gonna be another little boy with Down Syndrome in my class! Isn't that exciting? I can't wait to show him the ropes :)

This morning we woke up early and took Great Grandma Berta to the eye doctor. She needed a ride cause she wasn't allowed to drive home. When we got there I was a little nervous, because I know an eye doctors office when I see one! Once I realized they were only gonna mess with Grandma Berta I relaxed. I sat in one of the big chairs and read Highlights magazine. When that got boring I tried out National Geographic. We were there for a long time waiting for Grandma, but I was very good the entire time. Cooper, of course, spent the whole time running around like a madman. What is wrong with that kid???

Tommorow me, Mommy, and Cooper are going to meet with my teacher in the morning. I can't wait to see my old classroom and rip all the stuff off the bulletin board!!!

Grandma Donna, if you are reading this your email is full! Wow, that is a lot of emails. I hope you emerge from the wilderness soon and delete some of them. Miss you!!!

Today we just hung out. I was especially clingy to Mommy and mean to Cooper. I wanted to hug Mommy almost constantly and I really didn't like it when Cooper tried to get some lovin too. Little brothers are such a pain sometimes.

Mommy and me started playing the imitation game today. She touched her nose and I touched mine, she blew kisses and I blew them back. Grandma Berta got in on it and she started making muscles. Mommy thought I wouldn't do it, but I did. Apparently I have cute little muscles!

Mommy shared her steak with me at dinner, it was yummy! When I grow up I am gonna eat steak everynight, just like my daddy!

We had a party today! A bunch of my friends from Mom's Club came over to play and it was awesome! There were seven kids plus me and Cooper. We played in the playroom and then moved outside to the patio. I had a great time watching all the kids playing and I didn't even mind sharing my toys. I sat at the bottom of the slide and clapped for everyone when they slid down. This was the first time I ever had friends over at our new house and I really liked it. I had so much fun that I cried after everyone left. We should totally do it again sometime Mommy!

Boy is it good to be home! I had a very fun, but exhausting weekend. I was so worn out that I slept until noon today. It was an excellent day for sleeping in, since it was all yucky and rainy out. So all we did today was sleep, play, and eat. Meatballs for dinner....yummo!

My teacher called today! Mommy said she sounded so excited to have me back in her class, a nice change from my summer school teacher. We are going in next Tuesday for a conference, then I go for an hour on Thursday (with Mommy) and an hour on Friday (no Mommy). Tuesday the 4th is my first regular day and I get to take the bus. It is going to be a great year!

Tonight I got to watch the movie Mommy ordered me from Netflix. It is called "Move 'n' Groove Kids". It is an exercise video for kids and I loved it! It is basically a bunch of kids walking around and dancing. I think Mommy is trying to tell me didn't work, while all the kids on the TV walked around in circles, I had a great time crawling around. Oh well, I did almost stand up a few times and I followed along really well. Thanks for thinking of that Mommy, I promise I will walk around like those kids someday :)

Today was fun! When I woke up my cousins were here. Emilia fed me breakfast (which almost made up for us being out of bananas, but not quite), and then we all went and played in the playroom. Besides Cooper tripping over me, it was great. Why doesn't that kid ever watch where he is going???

Mommy went to the train station to pick up Great Grandma Joan and she didn't put me for a nap. Usually, she puts me down but I don't she didn't bother. I was in the playroom dancing to music with Emilia and all the sudden I just laid down in the middle of the floor and went to sleep. Emilia covered me with a blanket and that is where Mommy found me an hour later. I am such a goofball sometimes!

Oh well, I missed most of Grandma Joan's visit. It has been a rough couple of days.

Yesterday was a big day! We drove all the way to Philadelphia to go to a pool party for our special friend Christine. It was a really fun party, I especially liked the pool part. It was a really fun but really long day. I was totally wiped out by the time we got home...probably because I danced to the Wiggles the whole way there and back :)

Today I finally got to see Grandma Jan and Grandpa Don again! They were off globetrotting for a few weeks so we missed our weekend outings. Today we went to Friendlys, to the park, and played in the little pool. It was great!

Tommorow the cousins are coming back over...they'll be here all week!!!!

Quinn had a great time floating around. Surprisingly, he still fit!

We went to the MVA (or DMV depending on where you live) today. I hate the MVA! In fact, I hate the MVA so much that I cried and complained almost the whole time we were there and when Mommy picked me up to try and make me happier...I hit her. I slapped her on the face a whole bunch of times and then I scratched her. Boy, am I bad! Sorry Mom :(

After all that I finally fell asleep in my stroller and slept like a perfect angel while Mommy and Grandma Berta took care of their business.

Things were better after my nap. I gave Mommy hugs to apologize and then she put a new show on for me to watch. It is called "Hip Hop Harry" and it rocks! It is a lot like Barney, but with rap music! I really like rap music, I dig the beat. I was getting so into dancing that I almost stood up a bunch of times. Now I get to watch it whenever I want because any show that makes me want to stand up and dance is a good show. Even if the main character is a Vanilla Ice wannabee who can't rap to save his life (hey Mommy, this is my comments please).

Peace Out, Homies :)

I had a good day today. Mommy wasn't feeling well so we just hung around, but we managed to have fun anyway! Me and Cooper played a bunch and watched Sesame Street. It was all about dancing today so I liked it even more than usual :) We had meatballs for dinner, my favorite, and I ate at least 6 of them. I do love my meatballs....

After dinner Grandma Berta was trying to find something for me to watch on TV. She stopped on the movie "Muppets in Space" and I got all excited. I absolutely love the muppets! I watched the whole rest of the movie, talking to the TV the whole time. Mommy, do they have old Muppet episodes on Netflix? Maybe you should get some for know you love the Muppets too!

Daddy stayed home from work today so he could get some good bonding time in with me and Cooper before he has to leave again. Thanks Dad, it was fun! We hung out and watched some TV, then I refused to take a nap as usual.

Note to Mommy: Three year olds do not take naps!

It was a pretty unremarkable day. Just a nice relaxing family one :)

Cooper really liked taking a bath with Quinn, Quinn doesn't look too sure.

Funnest bath ever!!

Cooper says "Quinn can have the crib, this is comfy!"
Posted by Picasa

You mean I have to sleep in my underwear, just like Grandpop does? I know my Mommy sent some pajamas with me!
Posted by Picasa

Since Quinn has figured out how to climb out of the port-a-crib, Grandma Donna didn't even bother. She turned the whole room into a bed. This is how he ended up.

I bet you are wondering why I haven't posted in a few days? Sorry, but I need Mommy's help to post and she was busy preparing for the big teachers test she had to take today. How did it go?....yDon't ask!

Well I had a fun day on Thursday. My cousins were here and we played all day. My miracle belt came in the mail.....miracle, my butt! We couldn't even get it to fit right, maybe once we figure it out it will help me walk, but it sure made it hard to climb up on the sofa (the thing does weigh two pounds).

Friday was my last day of summer school. I didn't even get a note from my teacher on the last day! She really sucked! I can't wait to get back to Ms. Carol's class! I am really gonna miss my bus rides though.

Friday night I went to Grandma Donna's so Mommy could study. I am still there! I don't mind though, I love Grandma Donna's house!!! Daddy came home tonight so I am really looking forward to seeing him tommorow morning. I am glad he is home, even if it is only for a few days!

We went to the play area at the Towson mall and Quinn had a great time!
Posted by Picasa

Cooper, you need to loosen up, it is a "play" area!
He did actually play a little and there were even some smiles:)
Posted by Picasa

This is so cool, why doesn't the mall closest to us have a play area?
