First time at Chuck E. Cheese thanks to Lolo and Lola! Here I am playing peek-a-boo with them in the Toddler Playground. Check out my hair! (04 November 2011 // Citrus Heights, CA)

For starters, I have a lot more hair!  I actually started to use a detangler product because of my long curls on the back of my head!

I still have a big appetite.  I still haven’t kicked my pizza habit that I developed in Chicago this past summer.  My other favorite treats are waffles, cheesy eggs and vanilla soy milk.  Thankfully, I enjoy vegetables, too.  I like edamame, avocados, mushrooms and broccoli.  I also enjoy trying to feed myself and other people.

I’m still really into cars, trains, garbage trucks, fire trucks and big rigs.  I think airplanes are cool, too.  I even get excited when someone rides by on a bike.  I especially go crazy when kids zoom past me on their Razor scooters.

I am communicating and comprehending more.  I know how to bow for “Konichiwa” and “Sayonara.”  I know how to receive the Filipino “mano po” blessing from an elder by taking their hand and putting it to my forehead.  I applaud at the right part for “When You’re Happy and You Know It…”

This past month, I spent a lot of time at the park.  I know how to go down a slide by myself!  Needless to say, I’m walking and running around a lot, too!  It’s so much fun!  I’m ready to speedwalk like a New Yorker!

I have been enjoying this past week with Lola and Lolo in Sacramento.  Their house is full of toy cars and trains!  I am in heaven!  One more day of Cedro Playground Paradise before I get to see my Papa again in NYC!  I know that Lola and Lolo will miss me a lot.  I bet they’re relieved that I’m coming right back in a couple of weeks for Thanksgiving in SoCal!

I can’t believe it has been a week since we left LA and a month since we’ve seen Papa.  I really miss him.  This morning, I pointed at his picture and was very upset!  I can’t wait to see him!
