Tot About Town

Today mom and dad took me to the new Blanton Museum of Art grand opening party. I liked the Paul Klee, Ellsworth Kelly, and Bill Viola pieces, and there was a really cool mural there. Then I got to see my first concert. Heybale was playing in the atrium, and I got to watch Redd Volkert play telecaster and listen to Earl Poole Ball on piano. Earl used to play with Johnny Cash, and Redd plays with Merle Haggard. The band told daddy to let me out of my sling so I could get crazy.

I really put my foot in my mouth this time

Mom said she was proud of my yoga moves, she says I'm real flexible. When dad takes too long preparing my rice mush I like to have a big toe hors d'oeuvre while I wait.. .dad said he can't even lift his foot above his waist anymore. . . .being 5 months old has its advantages.

bruthas

I like to hang out with my older brother Jimmy in the mornings when I wake up. Jimmy likes to get up on the bed and say good morning to me, and he uses his big snout to help mommy do a "diaper check" before I go to skool. One day I'll be able to take Jimmy for walks so daddy can sleep in.

Ain't no Senator's Son

I wuz born with a plastic spoon in my mouth. I ate some rice mush tonight, it wuz OK. I got a lot on my bib and made sure my daddy got to wear some too. I think this rice would have been a little more palatable with some raw tuna, guacamole and wasabi, with a little ginger to cleanse the palette. I'll tell mommy to spice it up tomorrow but I'm too tired today, it was another tough day at daycare and I need some sleep.

A regular guy

Yeah, I'm just a regular joe. My mom got me this baseball hat with a picture of an El Camino like daddy used to drive. Today daddy took me to skool on the bus, and I met a bum who had the same number of teeth as me! I liked listening to the annoucements in Spanish, and watching people get on and off the bus.

Clifford and Me

My mommy works with Clifford the Big Red Dog and she asked him to come visit me yesterday! I really liked this guy even though I hadn't even seen him on TV before. He's a little different from my older brother Jimmy, but he and Jimmy hung out and had a good time.

First Cousins Once Removed

I didn't know how I was related to Sarah so I asked my dad to look it up. We are "first cousins once removed", because my great grandma is Sarah's grandma. . . . whatever, all I know is that Sarah is a great babysitter, and I had a great time going out to dinner with her and Jennie on Saturday night! Come back again soon Sarah!

Abdel Yassir Linkous

This is my best impersonation of Yassir Arafat. Or maybe it's just me after getting out of the bath. I like to take a bath with mom and then get snuggled up in this warm towel. I'm real excited today b/c Jennie and Sarah are coming to love on me for the weekend. And I'm ready for the weekend, it's been a tough week at daycare.

The Baby Whisperer

This is my friend Monsur, who takes care of me at St. Lukes daycare. He and his wife Rokeya are from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Monsur knows just what to do when I decide to get cranky, he sings songs, takes me for buggy rides, or performs plays with finger puppets. I like him. Today I wore my favorite grateful dead psychedelic onsie for him.

Into the Snake Pit

Yesterday I went to see 10 snakes at Beth and Greg's house. This is a python, and daddy is holding it, just before he put it around his neck. Beth and Greg also own Rosie, my brother Jimmy's new "bitch".
