"They are vey tricky to walk in. Mama seemed to think I looked more ready for a hockey game than helping with a floor tiling project, but I disagree."
Saturday we went to Gymboree. I always play hard here.
"My parents like to watch me have so much fun and also the fact that I nap really long after my class."
In this picture Daddy is trying to get me to sit down. I thought it was much more fun to walk/skid/trip down the slide.

Behold the toddler scientist. He repeatedly tests the physical world- most of his research lately has focused on gravity. He's quite interested in what happens when you push something off of the table, off the couch, off the stairs, off the high chair. Much to his mother's chagrin, though, he is oblivious to gravity's effect on his person. You should see the curious look he gave me as I came charging excitedly over to him just as he was about to dive face-first off the couch.
The toddler scientist also studies the interpersonal world. Here is a transcript of what I can only assume was his inner dialogue for part of yesterday afternoon:
"An unpleasant reaction, duly noted. THIS must be unacceptable"
"I better check to see if THIS is still unacceptable"
"Hmm, What does Mama do if I do THIS again?"
"Yep, still unacceptable."
"Hmmm, what does Mama do if I do THIS another time?"
"And another time??"
"And another time?"
"Interesting, would ya look at how her eyes are bugging out of her head..."
"Yep, still unacceptable"
"I'm bored with THIS, I think I'll go climb up on the couch..."

Here's Levi on the airplane during our flight on Thursday night. He was really good and was asleep for most of our time in the air. Before that though, he made friends with the passengers sitting near-by and also kept trying to lick the seats! We put his pacifier in his mouth right away after that.
