Simon Says "I Gave MiMi A Real BIG Birthday Surprise!"

MiMi had a birthday and Mommy helped me
give her a great BIG surprise!
We only told her to be ready to go away somewhere
with us for a whole day ...
and then she read my birthday card in the car
and she saw that we were taking her to see
Sesame Street Live!!!!
We had the best day ever ... a really yummy
brunch, a really fun show, I got to see all my
Sesame Street friends, I got an Elmo balloon, 
I got a new Sesame Street ball, and
oh yeah, MiMi got to watch me having all this fun!!!

Simon Says "Happy Halloween! My Treat - A Visit From My Aunties Lauren and Rama!"

Today Momma took Sam and I to Weber Farm
where we have gone to play with tractors,
hayrides, goats, punkins and a
special treat - apple cider doughnuts!

Today is also Halloween and my special "treat"
was waiting for me at the farm.
My Aunties Lauren and Rama came to play too!

And it was their first time to meet my little brother Sam!
We had lunch at MiMi's and I also had more time
to play and wear them out before naptime!
 Now before you go, I think you'll want to see
me in my dress rehearsal for later tonight!
Trick or Treat!

Simon Says "Sam You Are One Month Old ... Sorry No Party"

Can you believe it? I have been a BIG brother for
one whole month already!
There aren't any parties when you turn
one month old, but I told Sam
just wait until you turn one year old!

But let's not forget, before that happens,
we'll have a party when I turn TWO!!!
That's how high I know to count ... 1, 2!
So I am ready!

Simon Says "MiMi, What's Up With 'Fall, Oh So Beautiful'?"

My idea of falling, and I do it quite often
since I love to run and run fast, doesn't usually
make me think, "Oh beautiful!"
But now if it's the weather you want to talk about,
well, yes, that's been beautiful.
Another week of fun ... time to say goodbye to Sam & Momma.
 On the way out to MiMi's car, it's always fun to play
a little hide and seek!
 Awww, you found me!
 Hanging from a branch, you know
it's a favorite activity.
And visiting the neighbors punkins too!
I don't want to scare you, but look out ...
I love passing this as we drive away ...
a giant punkin and abug!!!

Simon Says "When I Say I Was Hanging Around, I Mean It!"

MiMi loves to see me do this ... she kept saying,
"Do it again, I missed it"!  My arms are going
to be huge if we keep this up!

Simon Says "Me? I'm Just Hanging Around MiMi's"

Here's a new fun thing that MiMi showed me ...
I can see more of the world from up here
in the tree! But I also can't get down
and take off on a run around her
circle either.  Hmmm, MiMi, I need
some help here!!!

I'm thinking you might be guessing
that I went to visit my Dada down on the ship ...
but, no, we had to take Sam to the
doctor's office and this is where
MiMi and I played while we were waiting.
I might want to be a boat captain one day!

Simon Says "Sleeping To A Jackhammer = Bliss"

Yesterday and today have been a loud and noisy
blast at MiMi's!  Just my kind of fun!
MiMi's neighbors are getting a new driveway
and the old cement one had to go ...
so all day we had the jackhammers as 
background "music" to our day.  And let me tell you ...
I've never slept better!  Forget the ocean waves or
bird songs, I sleep best to a jackhammer!  Who knew?

Today they brought my favorite thing to use ...
a diggy!!!!

My Dadda found the perfect spot to take me
where we can park and watch the construction site
for a new school.  There are diggies and all sorts
of trucks and equipment.  When MiMi found out about
this, she decided to add it to our daily routine so
I was thinking that was just great!

Now this ... a diggy right next door to MiMi's!
I've offered to help out and you can see
I look pretty much ready to go, don't I?

Simon Says "The Latest in Cute - I've Got It!"

 We are feeling the nights getting a little colder
so it's time to try out the new jammies with feet! 
I think I can do this look ... what do you think?

MiMi says looking into my eyes makes
her heart melt ... so be careful!

Simon Says "Wash Up First Is The New Rule"

We all just love to touch my new little buddy, Sam
but Dada and Momma always remind me,
we need to wash up first. Sharing toys and blankies 
is fine, but we can't share the yucky stuff with him 
(at least not yet!)

 Here's my little buddy, Sam yesterday.

I am having the best time now that Sam has come 
because I am getting so much more time with
Momma and Dada too!

Simon Says "My Best Buddy Is Here!"

Well, Momma and Dada have been telling me
about this exciting big day that was coming.
My new baby brother was going to come to live
with us! Here he is ... Sam Henry!!!

Say "hi" to Sam Henry Racicot.  Aren't I going
to have fun with him? Yes!!!

MiMi and Auntie Kerrian took me to the hospital
and we got to visit with Momma, Dada and Sam.
When it was time to say goodbye, I gave kisses
to everyone, but especially little Sam!

I can't wait to see him grow and soon he
will be able to run around and play all day with me!
I'm a lucky little boy and I'll be a good big brother!

Simon Says "It's Pumpkin Time"

Summer has been so much fun with long, long days
to play outside and all kinds of water play and
bike rides and wagon rides and walks.
But isn't it fun now to see all the leaves
falling down so we can crunch them
as we walk, and seeing all the piles
of pumpkins at the stores and farmers
markets? And pretty soon we'll be going
 for hayrides and drinking yummy apple cider!

Do you know what else comes this fall?
Well at my house we're expecting Sam to arrive
very very soon. I'll have a best little buddy right at home!

Simon Says "It Has Been Way Too Long, Right?"

This summer Daddy got me my very own bike seat and my very own helmet and we go out for rides every evening together!
This is Momma's favorite activity with me. Well, we can't blame her, now can we? Look who is hiding under her dress and that's a lot of work to carry him along too! And we love to watch for frogs, or bugs or ducks in the pond too! Hope you are having a fun summer!

Simon Says "Some Fun Outdoors With MiMi & A Pig"

We've had a really nice start to the summer of 2010 ... just enough rain to keep MiMi's flowers happy. And just enough warm days to keep me happy ... and what's a better way to be "summertime happy" than to play in water!!!
I know we told you about one of my favorite things to find on our walks. Well, meet my friend the pig!
And last, but not least, I thought you might just want to follow me - cruising along, chatting it up and collecting sticks, of course! Want one?

Simon Says "We All Went To The Zoo!"

The Mross and Racicot Families all went off to visit the animals at the zoo on Mother's Day!
This is my Oma holding me, my Aunt Julia and my Dada. Sorry PopPop, we should have gotten you in the picture instead of behind the camera!
Dada and I liked all of the same things! This is the monkies climbing & swinging.
This is my Auntie Kerrian and my MiMi and my Mama holding me. Sorry Uncle Charley and Aunties Lauren & Rama that you weren't able to join us all.
There were lots of penguins, but they were waiting at a door for their next meal. It's a little more fun to see them jumping and swimming in the water. We're very lucky to have our zoo. Do you have one where you live? If not, come on over and maybe we could go together!

Simon Says "Have You Missed Me? I Had To Give MiMi A Moment Free To Get This Out!"

It has been oh, so long since MiMi has had the freedom during a day or the energy left at the end of a day, to sit down and share with you. I promise we'll try to do this a bit more often. As you can see, my walking skills have improved quite a bit ... I can be quite speedy and go all about ... with MiMi in tow usually saying "Simon, no not there, come this way" and "look out for cars"! I have my favorite routine walking around MiMi's street ... there's the walk up to check out the traffic on Bellona, there's the rock wall, the neighbor's brick sidewalk, sticks to pick up, ants to watch, neighbors to say "Hi" to, birds and squirrels to babble at ... And guess what? There's a pig in someone's driveway!

Simon Says "Oh Boy, It Feels Like Summer Is Here!"

Yesterday it was 86 degrees ... hot enough that Momma and Daddy brought out my new favorite "toy" the water sprinkler! Who knew all of this fun awaited me?!
Fascinating! These things are hard to catch!
Now that's refreshing!
It's a cool look for the summer, don't you think? And MiMi says thanks to Daddy for all of these great pictures!

Simon Says "Well If The Booties Fit, You've Gotta Go With It"

Last week we had my Auntie Lauren in town. Oh my, what fun. My Auntie Lauren and I try to Skype almost everyday and then one day I arrive at MiMi's and there she is, in person! Here's a little designer creation she put together just for fun.

Simon Says "Okay, I've Got A Lot To Share!"

Remember how I told you to please come by to visit and play anytime? Well, my PopPop took me up on the offer and we had a special visit the other day!
And Miss Deborah came by too ... and we were able to take her over to the Tot Lot to play! It was warm and a guy works up a thirst so Miss Deborah shared her's ... wasn't that nice?!
And then a certain duck heard the news too
and came by MiMi's house too! Well, we couldn't get her to follow us to the playground, but it sure was nice of her to stop by!
MiMi thinks I look like such a big boy in this picture ... what do you think? Well, it takes a big boy to be a big brother doesn't it? Do you think I'm ready? I can't wait!

Simon Says "MiMi Says She Hopes These Pictures Will Do ... The Video Issue Is Still A Mystery"

MiMi's neighborhood has so much that we can do
just a short walk away. When the weather is warm and we find the time with Mommy, one of our favorite things is lunch at the old-fashioned counter at Charlesmeade Pharmacy!
Then it's just a short walk across to the Tot Lot in the neighborhood nearby. Who doesn't love to feel the warm breeze in their hair while swinging!
There are horses, scooters, bikes, and cars to ride. Everyone who lives nearby just brings their toys here to share ... now isn't that the best!
Here I am trying to help out by driving the Citizens Patrol car around to keep this place safe for one and all! You know you can come over anytime you want to MiMi's and we'll take you to play too!
