Sneaking up on Olivia

Shhhhhhh, I'm going to scare her!


Giant Sandbox

Today, I discovered a "giant sandbox" near the playground! There were all of my favorite construction vehicles moving tons of dirt around. I told mommy they were "look'n for gold!" and asked "where all the boys were going" after they carefully parked their machines promptly at 3:00 PM. After they left, I went back to the regular sandbox and reenacted everything I saw the "boys" do.

Mommy wanted to mention one other unrelated incident. Later, some big boys (6 or 7 year olds) came to the playground and were playing chase and I randomly chose one boy to chase while saying "Hey, get back here Vigo! Follow me Vigo! Let's go over here Vigo!!" Mommy was pretty sure his name wasn't Vigo, so she asked me if I had asked his name and the boy said, "No! He didn't ask my name, he's just been calling me Vigo, but my name is William!" Mommy found this hilarious, but tried not to laugh while explaining to me his real name. I acted like I understood, but later when we were walking back to the car I asked, "Hey, where'd Vigo go?" Mommy just started cracking up.

Vacation from Mommy and Daddy

Mom and Dad had a lot of work to do around the house, so I decided to help them out by asking to go to Yaya's house. Mommy met Yaya and Hinckpa halfway and made the switch on Friday. Today, Yaya and Hinckpa took me to the Berkshire Museum where I told them everything I know about the reptiles that were there. I pointed out a Boa Constrictor Snake on a chart and then brought Yaya across the room to show her which one was "the same one!" I had an amazing time looking for dinosaur bones and watching all of the animals get there food. Thanks for a super fun day that I will be telling Mommy about for weeks!

Tomorrow, I asked to go to Nonna and Nonno's house for the day. I'm going to surprise them in honor of grandparent's day! Maybe I'll stay here in the Berkshire for another week!  ;)

high chair antics

Enzo's Woodland Gruffalo Party

The first thing I said when I opened my eyes this morning was, "where's all my friends!?" I was very excited to see them and lots of my family too! I had a blast running around playing with balloons and the cool Gruffalo masks mommy made for us. I picked out a cupcake to put my candle in and was very excited for everyone to sing happy birthday to me.

 Here are some of the decorations mommy made. Yaya and Uncle Dan made the cool toadstools from clay and hand painted them!

 Thanks to all of my friends and family for making this such a special day!  xoxo

morning "coffee"

"Coffee" is really chocolate milk in his cool mug from Amsterdam.

He looks so sophisticated with his mug and his glasses on.  ;)

Rocco's Cool Construction Party

Today, I went to my buddy Rocco's house for his birthday party. It was awesome! We played in the bouncy house and used squiters (squirt guns, but our mommies don't like the gun part, so we just say squirters) on each other and the adults! It was a blast!

Enzo's Third Birthday - AM

Daddy heard me get up this morning at 6:20 AM and found me using the potty by myself! Hey, what'd you expect? I am three now. ;)

Mommy gave daddy the okay to get me my favorite breakfast - DONUTS! With Pink frosting! Then we all got ready and took some photos. It was a very nice morning to kick off being three!

Early Special Delivery from the Netherlands

Today, when I woke up from my nap mommy informed me that a special birthday package arrived from my buddies Ollie and Charlie in AMSTERDAM! When I opened the box, I frowned and said, "Where's Ollie and Charlie?" Then, mommy informed me that they only sent the gift and couldn't be shipped across the big ocean in a tiny box. Once we cleared that up, I opened all of my gifts. I especially liked the rocket ship and told momma, "That's really cool!"

Thanks Ollie and Charlie and Rebecca and Brad! We miss you guys!!

Snakes on a Crane!

The other day Jay and his awesome girlfriend Jessica sent me a really cool crane to help cheer me up during my recovery. For those of you who don't know Jay, he's the one who graciously hosts this blog for all of you to enjoy. Here I am putting my imagination to use and combining two of my favorite things. I call it Snakes on a Crane!

Thanks Jay and Jessica! You guys rock!!
