Halloween 101: Intro to Candy

Halloween definitely started off tricky this year. Mama was all about getting redemption for last year's failed Wonder Woman attempt. I still wasn't feeling it.

Halloween sucks!

But then I wised up a little bit and decided to throw Mama a bone. Also, there was talk of candy. I don't even know what candy is!! But from the way it was said, I knew it had to be something wonderful.

Did someone say candy?
Here's Wonder Woman in action!

Heck, here she is wrestling an alligator!!

Now, what about this candy you speak of?!?

Closer, Daddy!
Give it here, lady!
I'll take that! 
And that!
That's right, hand it over.
There'd better be more back there, bub.

Oh, sweet candy, where have you been all my life?!?

*Note from Mama: Sadie was actually a little hesitant at first to take any candy and didn't know what to do with it once she got it. But it didn't take her very long to realize that these perfectly-sized little packages had some kind of awesomeness inside. She had gone through a Tootsie Roll and started in on a Twix before we realized she was eating them, wrapper and all.

Thankfully, this is the only cleanup we had to do post Hurricane Sandy.

I hope everybody else is doing OK.

Sadiegoose's Hurricane Sandy Survival Guide

Guys, there's a hurricane out there! Actually, there's a ferocious mega/franken/super storm out there (depending on your news source)!! Now, I may only be 1 year, 2 months, and 10 days old, but this is my second hurricane. (I'm looking at you, Irene.) So I'm like a pro at this. Here are some helpful tips to get us all through this safely.

1) Wear appropriate gear and vigilantly check for leaks.

2) Seek out alternative shelter.
Is this place taken?
Ok, I'm getting in.
2a) Make sure your alternative shelter is big enough.
Aw, peanut butter and jelly! I don't fit!!

3) Hold on and DON'T PANIC!!!
Someone save my binky!!!

Hunker down, everybody!!

Shopping Bogart

Today I rode in a shopping cart for the first time! Well, technically I've ridden in a shopping cart many times before, but I've always been in my carseat. And now whenever when Mama and I go food shopping I'm either in my stroller or carrier. So, today was unique. I went to a magical land called Fairway! It was bright and colorful!!

What? This is how I ride.

Everything that Mama put in the cart had to get by me first. See the t.p. in the cart? I squeezed it. See the canned goods? I shook them. See the lone whole wheat mini bagel in there? I ate the other one. And so on. This worked out great until Mama got eggs. Also, I ate a mini pumpkin. 

Ugh, I feel ill.

I can't wait until the next hurricane-madness-induced-food-shopping-frenzy!!!

Xmas is Coming

Hey, kids! Christmas is just around the corner!! I'm getting a jump on my toy list NOW!!!

This Toys R Us catalog is off the hook!

I gotta sit down for this.

I take this very seriously.

I'm outta here. Got some shopping to do.

*Note from Mama: You can't tell from the photo but she ran off with the Toys R Us catalog in her hands when I told her it was too soon to be thinking about Christmas.

Rag Goo

Daddy, I decided to make you dinner tonight! I'm making you my specialty...

...Rag Goo

The secret is in the stirring.

Noodles, who's calling me now?

Ugh, it's Barbie.

Hey, girl! You're on speaker. Can I call you back?

Where was I? Oh, yeah, more stirring.

A good cook always tastes her results.

Mmmmm...try some!!

Future POTUS

I'd like to make an official announcement.

I'm running for President. You heard it here first, folks. In 34 years, you can vote for me!

I've already got my presidential poses down:

1) Stumping:
President-y looking!

2) Casual but thoughtful:
Baby Yeti and Woody are my bodyguards.

3) Relating to people AND showing I have a playful/fun side:
Did she take the photo?

If you think I've got what it takes,

in 34 years.

Blog Interactive: Hide-and-Seek

I'm getting really good at hide-and-seek. Let's play! I'll hide.

Where am I?
Oh, man, they'll never find me.

Here I am in the cabinet!! 

Ok, now where am I?
Holy cow, I am an awesome hider.

Here I am in the box!!

I WIN!!!

I told you I'm really good at this.

Hi-yo, Jumper, Away!

Are you ready for a blast from the past?? BOOM:

That's me six months ago in my jumper. And here I am today on my 14th-month birthday!

Still whee!
Mama surprised me and brought it out of hiding from behind the bed. It's still fun!! And now I know how to press all the buttons to make it play music. It's fun jumping to the Lone Ranger theme song!!! (It's actually the "March of the Swiss Soldiers" finale of Gioachino Rossini's William Tell Overture for all you music majors out there. Holla, Daddy!)

Apple Dandy

Ever since the Apple Debacle of long ago, this is how I am now "allowed" to eat an apple:

Sitting down, in my highchair, immobile. It's very limiting. I remember the days when I could roam freely whilst whittling away at the delicious fruit...
I miss the good ol' apple-eating days.

I still like to tease you and Mama about the incident, though. In fact, I see a great spot over there where the apple would practically be in plain sight but you guys would never find it!!
Should I?

But instead I'll just sit here biding my time, angrily eating my apple until I'm allowed to roam freely again.
I'm not angry with you, apple...

I'm angry with them.

Elmo the Omnipotent

I'm back in NYC! It's nice to be home, but I keep getting a strange feeling that somebody or some thing is watching me.

Elmo's right behind me, isn't he?
