The Train Show

Mom and I went to the Train Show at the Botanical Gardens and it was really cool! I didn't know what it was about at first, but when I saw those trains chugging along I became really involved in the excitement of it all. I also got to see famous New York architecture in my size. How cool is that? Look at me, I'm almost taller than the Statue of Liberty!

Can you see the trolley car in this picture? It took me a minute at first, but once I figured out it was above me, I couldn't get enough of it.

Rocking With My Pals at Rockerfeller

Since I am a New York City girl, my parents felt it was necessary that I see the tree at Rockerfeller Center. Little did I know that Spongebob, the Grinch, and Elmo would be there too. OH,WOW! I was lucky enough to get my picture taken with them, but I was so enthralled that I forgot to look at the camera. It really is me in the picture, I SWEAR!

Trimming the Tree

Boy, Mom and Dad are sure lucky that I came along, because I had to do all the work putting up the tree while they sipped champagne...I guess that is a family tradition from my dad's side of the family. Here is me picking out the tree. There were a lot to choose from, but I knew that we needed a tall skinny tree.
I think that putting the tree in the stand was the most fun. I really enjoyed twisting the screws into the tree. Mom and dad didn't think I was strong enough, but I showed them a thing or two.
And lastly I untangled all of the lights so that mom could put them on the tree while I napped. It took awhile, but I got the job done. The tree looked beautiful with all of the ornaments on it. I can't stop saying "Oh, Wow" every time I see it.
Update: I have become very fond of taking the ornaments off the tree, sucking on them, and then hurling them across the room. What fun!

Mom and I went to Lenny's the other day because we had run out of coffee, and I saw the muffins. Wow, they looked so good I had to point at them and tell mom "MMMMmmmmMMmmm" so that she understood how I felt. (Even though I have never had a muffin in my life, I'm more of a croissant girl). Mom bought me a muffin and here I am, a very satisfied girl indeed.

I Rocked Thanksgiving

I spent Thanksgiving near the city pictured below and I had a great time rockin' there. I ate a ton of food, shopped, walked, and rocked. I must have had Thanksgiving turkey for three days straight. YUM. I also was able to see 3 of my uncles who I don't see very often. I was afraid of them at first, but then I warmed up to them all.

I also got to see Mimi and Pops. Pops had siatica so he was walking like an old man, even though he looks pretty young in the picture. It was a really nice Thanksgiving and I'm glad that I was able to spend it in California with Lulu. I sure fattened her up.

My First Visit to Vermont

I just returned from Vermont where I visited with William. He is the son of my mom's good friend from college. I had a great time with him because he is really cute and really nice and he doesn't mind it when I give him kisses. He actually smiles really cutely. His toys are AMAZING. Daddy thinks that boys definitely have better toys (while girls have better clothes of course). He has an airplane toy that I mastered in 5 minutes and was flying around everywhere to "Welcome on board, buckle up, here we go, BRRRRRRROOOOOOMMMM". We went to a farm and saw cows really close up. Boy do they stink. I much prefered the warm restaurant we went to afterwards filled with people I could say "hi" and "bye" to.

Here is William and me in the playroom that our parents locked us up in. I learned all about kiddie gates which I never knew existed.

This is my mommies friend, Marchini, who I love to play with because she is so funny. She likes to turn me upside down and then tickle me. We had so much fun playing.

This is me on William's chair. I enjoyed watching TV upside down.

Mimi's Visit

Well Mimi visited for a whirlwind weekend and we had so much fun! We went to the Botanical gardens again because they were so great the first time and this visit I was able to smell the roses. Wow they were so fragrant!

Even though the exhibit was eye candy, it still wasn't able to tempt me away from the glasses.

We went to the park and swung on the swings which is always a blast. I yelled out "wee!" really loudly and all the kids stared at me like I was a loon, but I really didn't care because I was swinging higher than them all.

Here I am pushing my own babies. Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to have twins, because the double stroller is really great- it's such a good workout!

Mimi was excited with all of the progress I have made. She was really impressed at my fascination with shoes. I can play with a shoe for a half an hour or more, the ties are so challenging. Next month when I see her for Thanksgiving, maybe I'll even be able to tie them myself!

October ReCap

Well October has been a very long and eventful month and it's not even over yet!! I went to the Bronx Botanical Gardens at the beginning of the month with my mom and dad to view the Chihuly Exhibit. WOW. That's all I have to say about that.

I really enjoyed the goldfish too.

I have also begun school part-time and I love it. I have some great new friends like the girl sitting in the front seat next to me. She's my best friend and we like to gossip all the time. We go out to the neighborhood petstore and park to get some fresh air and this is our mode of transportation.

This is me and my new friend Sofie. I met her last week, so she is probably twice as big as she was in this picture. I really like babies so it was a really important moment in my life.

My Auntie Jill, who is my godmother, visited me last weekend. Her company is making her work out of a little town in New Jersey because they needed somebody to fill in. I guess she was the only one for the job, but I am happy about it because I got to hang out with her all weekend. She's really silly. You should also admire my new sweater dress, which is my most fabulous new piece for the season.

Pretty In Pink

Mom went to H&M the other day and bought me a whole new winter wardrobe!! The best thing is that she didn't break the bank. I tried on a lot of the clothes and really like them, especially my new Bambi shirt (not pictured).

I have on my new down jacket/vest and sweater. I know that I look like a pink snowball, but I'm still the cutest right? I don't really care as much about all the clothes as I do about playing hide-and-seek with dad. Gotta run (literally;)!

I Love Spaghetti

I think that I was Italian in a previous life because I just love spaghetti; puckering up my lips and sucking the noodles in is my new favorite thing. It is really messy too and I love to make messes. When I throw food off the side of my highchair it makes my mommy act really silly. She gets a mean face and starts to act all crazy. I mean really, who cares if spaghetti and meatballs are all over the floor? Doesn't she know that I'll have it for a snack later?

My name is Boopsieboo and I am addicted to telephones. I love any phone with a dial tone, but don't try to fool me with a cell phone sans battery. I DON'T like dead phones. If it doesn't beep I get PISSED. I have been known to throw phones across the room if they won't make the appropriate noises. I stayed with my grammy and gramps this past weekend and gramps tried to trick me with his cell phone minus battery. I would have none of it. I'm no fool. I love calling Mimi in California and saying "babababba's". I also like crank calling. I've been known to call my parents or their friends when I'm playing with their cell phones. I have to say, phones are the best toys in the whole world.

Living in a Broccoli World

It may be because my mom ate so much broccoli when I was in her stomach, but I just LOVE the stuff! Yummy! I also love raisins and I know my mom ate a lot of chocolate covered ones when I was just a fetus. I also love raviolis and spagetti and food. I just love to eat food. Thought I would share that tidbit of information with you all.
Grammy was very excited when I ate her Tilapia the other night. I think she even cried. She said, "I know I made a good meal when my grandaughter will eat the fish". (Sniff,sniff)

It's Been a Long Time Baby

I'm sure you are all wondering where I have been (and getting tired of my cleavage shot). Well I've been in a beautiful fantasyland called Telluride where my parents rented a house so that we could escape the hustle and bustle of New York for a couple of weeks. I had so much fun on my vacation in Telluride that I was unable to post for awhile, but don't worry, I'll make this one extra long to make up for lost time.

Well on route to Telluride I met up with Deanbug at the Denver airport. He is sooo cute, and I had so much fun playing with him. He is still crawling so I walked and he tried to use me as a crutch to stand. Most times he would just knock me over, so I had to keep running away from him.

We got to do a lot of great things together... play the guitar... books...

...and take baths.

I also was able to do things that I never even knew about like...

...ride on a gondola...

 an all-terrain vehicle...

And things I did know about like... in the park...

...hike in the mountains...

...cuddle with Lulu...

...and Auntie Kate.

Look at this cool picture my mom took of Pops standing on a mushroom!

And one last look from Telluride, Bear Creek Falls, where I hiked to with mom & dad.

Yeah Baby!

I'm feeling pretty groovy in my mom's sunglasses. I like to pull them off her face and wear them myself. I also have one of my more favorite outfits on, although my dad is worried that it is a little low cut for a young lady like me. It is pretty sunny and hot here in New York, even hotter than California. This past weekend my parents went to Amy's wedding (remember the post telling about her engagement?) and I stayed with my gramps. I had a great time running around and I think he had an even better time chasing me!

Me and My Doorag


Well Mimi and Pops brought me back a scarf for my hair from Sicily, because that is what is hot in Italy right now and they wanted me to be on the cutting edge of fashion. I try to take it off all the time, but if I forget it's there then I don't mind having it on. I'm visiting my Mimi and Pops in California and I have to say it is dreamy out here. I can sleep all the way through the night without sweating from steamy heat. It's amazing, a California heat wave is peanuts compared to a New York heat wave. You haven't been hot until you've been to NYC during a heat wave, especially in my apartment where you put on two air conditioners at the same time and glass fuses start bursting!

I've been doing a lot of exploring in the big house that I'm staying in. There are sure a lot of rooms that I can crawl and play in. I like climbing on the stairs and having my mom chase after me. I also like to climb through the kitchen chairs as you can see here in this picture.

After all the swimming and crawling and climbing and walking I usually like to take a nap with Lulu. She's my grandparents' black Lab and I enjoy hanging out with her. She really likes having me around because she gets a lot more food scraps than usual.

Watch Me Walk

Hello to all my fans out there, this is a big day in Cassidyland...I can walk. I am about to show you my tricks.

Before we get going I have to take a time out to do a Downward Dog, one of my favorite positions that I learned from my Yoga Grammy when I was just a little baby sitting in my Bumbo chair.

This is me falling and one of the reasons why I don't like walking: the gravitational pull.

Here I am taking a moment to decide if it is all really worth it, I mean crawling is great and I use all 4 quadrants of my brain when I do it, but my butt hurts!

I decide that walking is kind of addictive and I would like to give it another go.

After practicing all day I can run.

I've learned how to muli-task; I can suck on my blankie and walk to mom at the same time.
