O Christmas Tree

We put up the Christmas tree this weekend since we didn't know when we'd have another chance to do it before the holidays! We're now re-thinking our clever plan since Micah seems to be more interested in trying the pull the thing down on himself than anything else! Hope that tether holds! This is a cute video of him seeing the tree for the first time (we put it up while he was napping). We are going to be in Corinth, MS, our old stomping grounds, for Thanksgiving this year. We are looking forward to seeing all of our friends again! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday too!

"Dad, can I have the keys?"

He might not be asking for the car keys just yet, but Micah is fascinated with his new remote controlled car. After getting over the initial shock of seeing the car move and not knowing how that was happening, he thought it was a lot of fun! The "steering wheel" has a horn and two buttons to move the car forward and backward. He can even steer by turning the wheel whichever way he wants the car to go. Now if we could just keep him from pointing his other toys at the car and syaing "Go!" We tried to explain that only the steering wheel works, but this hasn't sunk in yet ;-) In other news, we finally buzzed his head again as you can see. He hates getting his hair trimmed so we always buzz, which is the quickest way to get it done. I figure when he's in the wedding in a month, it will have grown out to a nice length. On Friday, he fell on the playground and got a huge bump on his lip ;-( The poor kid looked a litle lopsided this weekend, but the swelling has gone down now and I think he'll live! We had a nice fall weekend, raking leaves in the backyard and visiting with friends... and working on papers (Dan grading them, me writing them). I can't believe it's almost December!

Micah plays with his puzzle from Grammy and Pop Pop, minus the sounds which were a little too scary last night ;-)

Birthday cake and presents

Micah is opening a present from Nana and Papa Inouye--a remote controlled truck!

Happy 2nd Birthday Micah!

Wow--I just can't believe that Micah is 2 today! I just visited some friends that have a 2-week-old last night and I couldn't help but think it was just last month that M was that little. Yes, we are in the "terrible twos" now, but as stressful as that can sometimes be, it is also a lot of fun! We had the best time yesterday eating cake, playing in the leaves outside and opening gifts from family and friends (thank you!). I'll post some more videos of him opening them last night. Even though today is technically his birthday, we celebrated last night. I sent him to daycare with cupcakes for him to share with his class at lunch.

Pumpkin Carving

Here's a funny belated video of Micah wanting to help us carve the pumpkin, but then again...maybe not :-)
