PJ’S Diary: My First Sleepover

The other day, my mommy and daddy went out – without me, can you believe that?! So I went to have a sleepover at my Nana’s house, yay! My PopPop read me stories:

image

My Uncle Caleb is home from college, and he played with me too!
image

We’re the stripe twins! I even tried to steal his soda, but he caught me 😦
image

I wasn’t even scared at bedtime because my friend Michael was there to keep me company.
image

In the morning, my mommy came to get me and I was so happy to see her, I gave her lots of big, wet, slobbery kisses (well, after she fed me anyway). Then she took me home, and I was really happy to see my daddy too! And my bouncer!
image

Bounce bounce bounce…what was I saying? Oh yeah…
image

It’s good to be home again.

PJ’s Diary: Snow Day!

Something very weird is happening. Chicken Little was RIGHT, the SKY is FALLING at my house! No really! Look! It fell right on my favorite tree!
image

My mommy changed her work day, I was so happy to see her this morning.
But then she taked me out and I was all “Are you crazy?! The SKY is FALLING!”
image

And then that silly mommy of mine put me right down in the white stuff. I wiggled around a little, it was very fluffy under my hiney and made me laugh.
image

I’m not very good at sitting up yet, but I’m really good at flopping!
image

Oh my gosh, Mommy, did you know that when the sky falls on your face it tickles?!
image

I had so much fun wiggling around in the snow that I made a snow angel all by myself, Mommy didn’t even help me at all!
image

I wanted to play and play but Mommy said I was starting to look like Rudolph and had to go inside. Boooo! Waaaaah!

Ooh look, my crocodile…
image

I wonder if he likes snow too?

PJ’s Diary: My First Thanksgiving

Mommy says Thanksgiving is the best holiday – we see our whole family, and there’s lots of my favorite thing ever, FOOD!
image

We had two Thanksgivings this year, yay! On Sunday, some of my aunts and uncles came over to our house and Mommy made something called a turkey:

image

Waaaait a minute, should I be worried here?
image

Anyway, my Uncle John & me watched football together…
image

And my aunts all snuggled me! Snuggling is my favorite, right Aunt Linda?
image

Today, we went on a trip to see my family in New Jersey.
image

And on our way, we stopped in to see the nurses that took care of me when I was a tiny baby – this is Miss Erin, I was so happy to see her!
image

When we got there, my PopPop and my Aunt Cindy chopped up more of those turkey things.
image

It takes a lot of turkey to feed this crowd!
image

After the big people ate, it was my turn – yay! I didn’t think that turkey stuff was very good, but my PopPop’s tie was yummy!
image

Big families are fun, there are always people to cuddle you.
image

That’s my cousin Deanna, she’s so pretty and she likes Neverland just like me!

Then we all play games…it’s nice and loud, just the way I like it.
image

I had so much to tell my friend Michael before we fell asleep. Now we having dreams about next Thanksgiving…good night, friends!

How PJ Celebrated World Preemie Day

1) Demanded breakfast at 5:30 am.

2) Demanded second breakfast a la Merry & Pip at 9:30 am.

3) Played nicely in his car seat until “Boondocks” came on the restaurant radio, then had a dance emergency and insisted on being taken out to dance on the table (a la cousin Korin) to the vast amusement of the waitresses.

4) Blew out his diaper. Twice.

5) Giggled uncontrollably at Mommy & Daddy singing “I Feel Good” for his entertainment.

6) Played with rubber duckies in the bath tub.

7) Started mimicing Mommy’s movements during tummy time.

8) “Helped” Mommy fold laundry.

9) Had guy time with Daddy while Mommy went to the gym.

10) Activated his Small but Mighty Preemie Powers and pulled himself up in his crib for the first time!

Happy Preemie Day, peanut!

PJ’s Diary: First Halloween (Part Two)

Yesterday, I got to wear my fluffy lion suit again! Mommy said we were going Trick or Treating – oh boy!

image

That’s my PopPop – he wanted to know if I was a Nittany Lion!

image

My Nana snuggled me too, just like she does when Mommy goes to work!

image

PopPop, that’s my lion hat! You so silly!

image

Then we went to Uncle Kyle’s house and I roared just a tiny bit for him. Do you like my tail? It’s pretty cool. My Aunt Jenna was working, so I was a little sad to miss her.

image

And after Uncle Kyle’s house, we went to see Grandmom and Grandpop and Uncle Michael!

image

Rrraaawwwr Grandpop! Uh, Mommy? My fluffy lion suit is getting a little warm.

image

Muuuuch better. Happy Halloween, my friends!
