My birthday girl

I know I’ve missed some other birthdays and events because I haven’t blogged in a while, but I couldn’t miss Feb 2nd because it’s my puppy’s birthday – and there’s a special bond between a boy and his dog, right? GiGi turns 1 today and OMG has she grown the past year. She’s grown into a 58 lb lap dog, but she’s still all puppy – always wanting to play. I think she’s a bit stubborn too, but my parents say she is nothing compared to how stubborn I am – we’ve agreed to disagree on that one. The one thing that is clear – she’s my dog because she is always wanting to be right near me even if it means being a beanbag hog.


Galveston Day 7 – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

Even though Daddy hurt himself, the world continued to turn and days past so there was no stopping my birthday. That’s right, I’m no longer a little 5 year old – I’m the big 6!!

The first thing I did when I woke up was to stand up tall and see how much I grew. Then I ran through the beach house getting happy birthdays from everyone. I was like cool, but where are the presents. I had to wait a little while we set up the decor, but it was well worth the wait because I got so much stuff. I must be loved because the more you’re loved the more toys you get, right? Do my parents need to revisit that one with me? That actually may be me more imposing that rule on my parents rather than them teaching me that way. Whatever – I got lots of presents and that is what I am shooting for. I need to get the bumper sticker that read “The one that dies with the most toys wins” and put it on my motorized Jeep next to my vanity plate.

What’s the difference?

Take a look at the photos below and let me know if you see anything different.

Besides me trying to look silly while taking the picture, the one I’m looking “super” in is the first day of me being 5 YEARS OLD!!! The other one is so 4 years old.


5 years ago I changed my mommy and daddy’s life forever – and everyone I come in contact for that matter. They never knew how much their lives would change for the much better. Everyday is something new for us all and together we move forward. I’m going to make 5 years old the best year ever!


Today is my Grannie’s birthday. She absolutely rocks and I love her so much – 199 times.

This is some video of her co-workers singing to her. They know she’s special, too.


Today is my mommy’s birthday. She says she is 17….now, I’m not that good at math yet, but something doesn’t add up. When I asked my dad, he wouldn’t confirm or deny. He said some things I will have to learn on my own so not sure what that means.

Anyway, mommy had to work last night so when she came home, daddy and I sang to her and gave her some presents. We also made breakfast for her so today is off to a good start. Now I just need to decide whether to be a good boy or not.


What a weekend!

Usually my weekends are pretty laid back. I wake up around 7a on Saturdays. My mommy or daddy gets me some milk and something to eat. Then I decide what kind of mood I am going to be in that day. And just b/c I pick one mood at 7a doesn’t mean that I am going to be in that mood at 12p or 8a for that matter. Read the fine print….I reserve the right to change my moods at the drop of a hat for whatever reason I see fit. Don’t believe me? Try me. Then I usually play outside, do a few things with the fam, take a nap, play some more, ride my bike, go to the park, etc. Again, my weekends are fun, but pretty laid back – no schedules.This weekend, at least Saturday, was packed full.

First thing Saturday, I woke up and had my milk and breakfast. Then daddy took me to get my hair did b/c I had a birthday party to go to for one of my little girlies in my class, Alexis.  I usually go to Snip-Its to get my hair did because that is the first place I went to when I moved back to Texas and I don’t like change.

After getting my hair did (and I do look good), I needed to get Alexis a gift. So off to Toys R Us. Now, my mommy and daddy thought I suggested this place b/c I could get a gift for Alexis, but they didn’t know I was working my way into a gift for me. I ended up pocketing a Play-Doh play kit and The Fox and the Hound DVD. Oh yeah, I got Alexis a My Little Pony thing.

So now this brings us to the party. It was at The Little Gym. This was the first time for me to go there and I told my daddy that I liked the place and wanted to go back. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I had to take my shoes and socks off. I don’t really like going barefoot, but daddy and mommy took theirs off so I figured it was okay. So I’m in the gym and checking out the place. I was able to jump on mats, swing on bars, run through tunnels, and even play games. For those of you who don’t know me, this was a big deal. I usually am more reserved, but I was letting it all hang out and laughing, playing, yelling, etc. We then ate some pizza and cupcakes and watched Alexis open her presents. She got some pretty cool stuff. Overall, it was awesome and I can’t wait to go back.

After this, I thought my day was over, but NO. We ended up meeting up with grannie, my great aunt Cyndy, great uncle Ronnie, cousin Chrissy and her husband Michael (they’re expecting – can’t wait to meet my new cousin), cousin Bubba and his girlfriend Mallory. We all went to Pappasito’s for dinner and then went bowling. I’ve been to a bowling alley before, but I’ve never actually bowled. THIS TIME I DID! The bowling alley had this cool thing where I could put my ball on and push it down the lane since I couldn’t hold the ball like everyone else. When I get bigger like daddy I can do it that way.

I didn’t get to bed until late that night so I decided to sleep in the next morning. I went to Tio’s house on Sunday because it was his birthday.

Here is my weekend in pics and videos….

Happy Birthday Tio!

Today is Tio’s birthday. He is so loco! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIO!

This is Tio when he helped building my playset outside. We still need to put up my bull you bought me, Tio.

Happy Birthday Jon and John

I am suppose to give a happy birthday shout out to a guy, or as my daddy says, a legend named Jon Bon Jovi (48). Daddy says that he has been a fan of Bon Jovi for over 20 years and that he could probably comprise the soundtrack of his life with Bon Jovi tracks. He also tells me that grannie, mommie, and him went to a concert when I was in mommy’s belly. Maybe that is why I got so much rhythm and musical creativity (my drums, guitar, and keyboard don’t lie). He also told me that at that particular concert (the Crush tour) that they sent a text to me on the message board at the arena. Although he admitted that they thought I was going to be a girl at the time and they were going to name me Jessie. I think they upgraded in every way.

Daddy also said that mommy and him danced to Bon Jovi’s Thank You for Loving Me during their first dance at their wedding. He must be great. And, in my opinion, he has gotten better taste over the years. But daddy is quick to point out that this was the look back in the day….it should stay there….back in the day….

Also, on this day, John Cowsill from one of my grannie’s favorite bands, The Cowsills, was also born today 54 years ago. I haven’t seen these guys perform, but my grannie plays their music all the time…..she is always singing Hair to me when my folks mention cutting my hair. She’s loco.
