in·ter·ca·lar·y

Adjective:
(of a day or a month) Inserted in the calendar to harmonize it with the solar year, e.g., February 29 in leap years.

It's almost Leap Year Day.  Hooray...another day to play, although I'm not sure why it can't be an extra day that always falls on a weekend. 

Here are some of the fun things I did last week.  On Wednesday, we made my first trip to the store with my shopping cart I got for Christmas.  Good thing the shopping list was short, because the cart really doesn't hold much.  Mom and dad even said no to the Folgers I wanted to add.  Hmmm on second thought maybe that's cause it was Folgers.
Dad flew out of town on Thursday morning and was gone for the night.  To celebrate girl's night, mom and I hit up the ice cream shop BEFORE dinner!   Afterwards, we perused the library for some new books.
Skipping ahead to Saturday, February 25th, I headed to gymboree to get in a dose of excercise.  The afternoon was a stop at the Bates' to watch a certain basketball game that dad doesn't want to talk about.  If you click on the pic of me in my Tiger shirt, you can probably zoom in on the TV behind to see what I'm talking about. 
That night we had a homeowners party to go to.   It was a pretty good shindig and there was plenty to eat.

Sunday I had another gym date.  I'm contemplating taking up the parallel bars, however the foam pit is a LOT more fun!  Just ask dad.   After lunch I got in some quality time with Pierce!

Dido and Donna came over on Sunday night and brought dinner.  To get into the Irish spirit early I colored myself green.  Luckily it washed off pretty easily.

Mimi picked me up from school super early today so we could head to Gymboree Music.  I don't have any pics from that, but trust me it was a great time.  We played instruments, danced to music, and twirled around some flashlights in the dark.  Before my nap she took me to the park since it ended up being such a nice day.  As you can see, I'm letting mom do my hair in the Pebbles fashion.















 


















I took some video earlier this month but forgot to post it.  Here's what I've learned in school...shapes, and I've memorized what a few words look like.

Think Pink

On Tuesday, February 14th we had a party at school.  I wore pink, had pink cupcakes, and drank from my pink cup (trying to stay with the theme).  It was my lucky valentines day as I even got a kiss from Matthew...okay, different day, but who cares right.!
On Wednesday we hit up dinner with Dido and Donna.  The restaurant had a fun bench seat and a table just my height that I could run around.
Sushi did not agree with me, because here's what happened when I got home...three times.  I have now added the word vomit and yucky to my repertoire.  I was fine by morning so something apparently just didn't sit well.
On Friday, February 17th, Mimi came down to spend the afternoon with me since dad headed out of town to go visit GGma Betty and GGpa Gene for the weekend.  She even stuck around for dinner and bathtime!!!
On Saturday we headed to Gymboree.  As you can see I'm now allowing mom to put bows in my hair, but I'm not sure if I'm happy about it.
Afterwards we headed out to BobBob and Ta's for a slumber party.
I now have 2 faces I can do on command.  Pouty lip face and cheese face.

Other activities over the weekend included a trip to Nordstrom and one to Walmart where I picked out a new toy to put on my wish list.  Hello...the handlebars have streamers ...why would I not want it?
I did walk out with this sweet new Mr. Potato Head with whom I shared my lunch.  After that I shared a snooze with BobBob and Porter before some fun with cousins Pierce and Paige. 




















School sent home the drawing I did below.  Mom was not impressed and as you can see, she gave me an F.  Next time I'll try and do better.















Finally, here are a few highlight pics from Uncle Dave and dad's side trip to Cambodia and Vietnam while mom and I stuck it out in Thailand.  There's more online if you care to peruse all 523 images.
