I am Victoria!

video

This morning Mommy and Daddy both came in my room to get me out of bed. They climbed on either side of me, in an attempt to make what they like to call a "Victoria Sandwich". They said they were the bread and I was the cheese. I proceeded to tell them, "I am not cheese! I am Victoria!" This was quite momentous because this was the very first time I had said my name!

Chuy's Parade 2010













We headed downtown to meet my friends Tripp and Tate for the annual Chuy's Kids Giving to Kids Parade. There were lots of cool floats, balloons, bands, characters, cars...to see. We all brought toys to benefit the Blue Santa program. The highlight for me was seeing the princesses!

Exercise

Since the gym was closed on Thanksgiving Day, Daddy improvised by trying to do some exercises at home. I helped add some resistance!

Thanksgiving 2010


BaBa came to our house for Thanksgiving this year, so Mommy cooked her first turkey. There was enough food for a dozen people, even though there were only four of us (and since BaBa and I each eat like an 1/8 of a person, we were really only at 2 1/4). I actually ate four bites of turkey and tasted sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes. Mommy calls it a Thanksgiving miracle.

School Thanksgiving Feast




Today was the Thanksgiving feast at my school. We made a pie together and then brought other items to share. We also made crafts - a tablecloth, placemats and hotpads with our handprints. I, of course, ate nothing, but had fun!

Bye Bye, Crib



Mommy's not the best at getting rid of the stuff I have outgrown. I transitioned to a big-girl bed a few months back, but my crib has been sitting in the garage. She finally posted it on Craigslist, and it sold right away. She was a bit sad as she watched it head down the driveway in the back of someone's truck...yet another sign that I am growing up all too fast.

Music Class








Miss Beverly, a music therapist, comes to my school once a week to do a music class for us. She invited the parents to attend so they could see what we do and how much fun we have. They were not disappointed! She had sent Mommy a note a few weeks ago saying how well I responded to the classes...she is right! I played instruments, sang and danced (and amazingly waited my turn during the whole class!).

A Girl and Her Dog...Almost




As I posted last week, there was a labradoodle puppy in the auction at my school's fundraiser. To make matters even more complicated, we "puppy-sat" her for a couple of days before the auction...just enough time to bond with her. While Mommy and Daddy couldn't quite figure out if getting a dog now would be a good idea, Daddy marched in there and put down the first bid. Fast forward two hours and no one has overbid us...Mommy realized how much she really did want the puppy and got excited about making her a part of our family. The "The silent auction is now closed!" announcement came and someone picked up the pen and overbid us!!! It was a sad Sunday around our house.
