We're ready for Spring!

Mommy bought me a sunhat today. We're sick of the snow and want some sun! Plus, it's a super cute hat and I like wearing it! I have only pulled it off one or two times.

Dance Party!

Me and Mommy had a dance party today! It was so fun! Mommy took some video of my awesome moves so I could share them with you.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I like cars. I mean, REALLY like cars. Chances are, if you see me out and about I'll have a car or two with me. I prefer to have one in each hand at all times. Sometimes I can carry three! I like to drive them around every chance I get.

Super Saturday!!!

Today was a whirlwind of activity!

First, I learned how to paint with my hands! At first it felt kinda weird.

But I quickly caught on and really liked it.

Now Mommy and Daddy can officially say, "my toddler could paint that!" whenever they're at a museum of modern art!

Did I mention that Mommy got a new camera? Well, she did! She took lots of pictures of me today to test it out.

This afternoon we went to the zoo! I loved the dolphin tank most of all. Every time the dolphin swam by I pointed it out to Mommy and Daddy.

It was a special day at the zoo today. They were having an indoor beach party! Mommy and Daddy let me play in the sand because I'm a big boy now and don't eat sand.

I even made a couple new friends!

After the beach party, it was time to go home. Don't worry, it wasn't the end of the action, just the end of Mommy's photo-taking extravaganza!

Eli + Toddler OCD = Adorable (and other adorableness)

Mommy & Daddy think I have toddler OCD. It's just that sometimes I want things JUST SO. Like my crayons, for instance.

First, I had them in a line on my right. But that wasn't quite what I needed. So then I tried a semi-circle.

Still not quite right. So I tried ANOTHER line, but this time on my left side.

Perfect! Now I can color!

My Grandma Larson sent me a cookie in the mail for Valentine's Day and Mommy let me eat it today. I'm not sure what she thought was so funny though...

Also, yesterday we went to the Children's Museum again! (Mommy and Daddy got a membership so we can go ALL THE TIME!!!) Mommy tried to teach me how to paint my own face.

I tried, but I kept wanting to eat it or draw on the table instead of my face. So Mommy ended up doing most of my face for me.

Then I found this really neat hollow log. Daddy wasn't sure about the log, but I told him there was nothing to be afraid of.

See? That giant spider is nothing to be afraid of. He's more afraid of you than you are of him. Silly Daddy!

I also saw some fish! I said hi to them.

And I went on a slide. I love slides!

Later, Mommy tried to get a cute picture of my painted face. I gave her many good poses!

I still don't understand why she stopped after that last one! I was working it!

Museums are GREAT!

I went to a museum with Mommy and Daddy this weekend. It's called the Minnesota Children's Museum. If all museums are as fun as this one and the one I went to in Milwaukee, then count me as a HUGE fan.

One of my favorite parts was that I got to play with water!

I definitely need one of these at home.

Better yet, I need a bubble tub! I got bubbles everywhere!

After Mommy and Daddy dragged me away from the bubbles, with promises of more fun to come, we went to the ball exhibit!

I played with a giant ball run, along with a bunch of older kids. But I know how these things work, so I fit right in.

Then we went to the toddler area of the ball exhibit and I found the biggest ball I could pick up. I'm surprisingly strong for my size. At least, that's what Mommy says.

After playing with the balls, we went to the habitot room. Right away I found a slide! Of course, it was a really, REALLY slow slide. And after Mommy and Daddy stopped laughing, they told me it wasn't actually a slide at all, but a ramp that I was supposed to WALK on! It took a little getting used to, but I eventually walked on the slide/ramp.

I also walked on a moving bridge for the first time. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first, but after testing it's stability, I was a pro.

I also did a bit of building, of course.

Then Mommy showed me a great big window where I could see cars! I let Mommy and Daddy know what I saw by saying "vrroom! car! car!"

In the last part of the museum that we visited, I found a Marley house! I knew exactly what to do.
