It's Mommy's 100th post!!

Hi! It's me, the Little Mister! Mommy has been very, very busy lately...and not just chasing me, like usual. Just before Daddy left a new family moved to our post. The daddy was already here, but the mommy and the twins just got to Germany. They don't have a car, but they still need to do things like go shopping and get ready for school, so me and Mommy are helping them. And they live kind of far away, so we've been in the car a lot since Daddy left. I can sleep in the car sometimes, but Mommy can't, and that makes her tired. So I told her to take a little break and just let me handle her blog. Am I doing okay so far?

Mommy said something about making a list of 100 things about her, or our family...but I don't think I can count that high. (Come on, I'm only 10 months old!) But I can tell you some things about us...
  1. Mommy really likes the color orange. A lot.
  2. She wears a lot of orange clothes.
  3. She makes me wear orange clothes too. But that's alright, I like orange (but not as much as Mommy).
  4. Mommy says the funny thing is that she's allergic to oranges. (Is that funny? I don't know much about jokes yet.)
  5. I love to take baths. Mommy says I'd stay in the tub all day if she'd let me, and I think she's right about that.
  6. This week I learned how to stand the bathtub! Mommy was scared, but I didn't fall. I'm too smart for that.
  7. Mommy has brown eyes.
  8. Daddy has brown eyes too.
  9. I have blue-grey eyes.
  10. Mommy says they look like Grandpa Beav's eyes. She also says they could still change...but I think she wants them to stay the color they are.
  11. Daddy is a soldier. He's far away right now, but I know he loves me even when he's gone. Sometimes we talk on the phone, and Mommy takes lots of pictures of me to send to him.
  12. Daddy really likes trains. Mommy said he can't wait to buy a train for me, so we can play with it together.
  13. My favorite food is food. I eat everything. It is very good!
  14. My newest food is cheese. And also grapes. Yum!
  15. We found out today that I weigh 18 pounds and 1 ounce.
  16. I might be small, but they said it's probably because my metab-o-something is high, and I move around a lot.
  17. We have three kitties. They stay away from me, mostly. But I say "hi!" to them a lot. Sometimes they meow back, but usually they run.
  18. Someday I will be fast enough to catch the kitties.
  19. While we live in Europe, Mommy wants to go to England, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, and most of all Greece.
  20. Daddy just wants to see everything.
  21. I just want to be outside!
Is that 100 yet?? It must be! That was a lot! My fingers are getting tired...

There's one more thing, though. Mommy's been kind of sad lately, 'cause Daddy is gone. She thought of something that makes her feel better when she's sad. The best thing that makes her feel better is, of course, me. But she said chocolate works too...and she wants to share some with YOU! Just leave a comment on this post between now and Friday at noon (Eastern time, she said that's easier than trying to remember the Germany time!) and then Mommy will ask someone (probably one of the twins, since I try to eat paper) to draw one of the names. We'll send the winner some chocolate! Mommy says chocolate is really good, and that we live in the land of chocolate. I thought we lived in Germany, but I guess I don't know everything.

And now my fingers are really tired. Plus I NEVER sit still this long, so I'd better be off. There are so many toys to chew on!

p.s. Mommy asked me to say sorry that she hasn't been reading other blogs much lately. It's 'cause she's so busy! But she's going to try to catch up soon. If I give her enough time. :)


  1. orange is very now.

    congrats on post 100!

  2. Little Mister, clearly you need your own blog, because you have lots to say

  3. He's got good typing skills to be so little. Congrats on 100!

  4. Sumo Baby had that EXACT SAME pajama set from Carter's. Sadly, it was 18 months and is long since outgrown.

    Mmmm . . . chocolate . . . my favorite is the kind that comes with the purple cow on the label! With nougat! It's AWESOME!!!

  5. I don't need any chocolate, I just wanted to say congratulations on your 100th post! Little Mister is adorable.

  6. What a cute post :) Little Mister is a sweetie :) Congrats on your 100th post!

  7. I love orange too! Orangey-peach like a sunset is my favorite color. Oooo.
    Happy 100th post!

  8. Orange is one of my current favourite colours. Congratulations on 100th post.

  9. Good job Little Mister and congrats on the 100th post. Hope mommy's feeling a little better and ooooooh chocolate...

  10. That was SOOOOO CUTE!

    So wonderful to hear you're helping out the new family. I think you know what a difference you're making in their adjustment to their new home and, really, in their experience in this military life overall.

  11. Congratulations on your 100th post! Color me impressed :) We are thinking about you and hoping this deployment goes quickly and SAFELY.

  12. Happy 100! :)
    I just want to point out that pregnant women LOVE chocolate. Especially German chocolate *ahem*.
    Glad to hear you guys are making new friends and hope to see you soon!! :)

  13. Little Mister, you are such a great writer! You should really start your own blog. And yes, it's very funny that your Mommy is allergic to oranges.

    What's your favorite kind of cheese? Lance likes cheddar, but he'll also eat Swiss. I bet you get different kinds of cheese in Germany than we get here.

    And please tell your Mommy that Guinevere and Lance would just LOVE to have some chocolate!! We bought some chocolate in the Germany pavilion at Epcot Center and it was just delicious.

  14. What a cute idea to have your little one 'write' your 100th post! Hugs to you. I hope you feel cheered up soon.

  15. Happy 100th to you and the genius called Little Mister!

    Hope all is well!


  16. Hey, shouldn't we be sending you chocolate? I have visions of a grand chocolate exchange program.

    It's nice to hear from the Little Mister. He can count very high.

    And I like orange, too. Though I'm not terribly fond of oranges.

  17. Maybe the Little Mister will be a famous writer and keep you and the Seargant in style. Orange is my favorite color too - always has been. Luckily, I'm not allergic to the fruit because they are one of my favorites.

    BTW I just finished reading The Giver - just as good as you said!

  18. I look awful in orange. Congrats on the 100th post!

  19. Thanks for the kind words over at my place.

    I'm sorry for the sadness of deployment.

    Your little mister is ADORABLE.

    Congrats on 100.

  20. Best wishes on your 100th anniversary.

    Stay well.

  21. I hear Katie Couric is leaving CBS. Maybe Little Mister could take over. Ratings would soar.

  22. Little Mister, you are too cute. Give your mama a hug from her blogging friends, okay?

  23. Congrats on 100!! Way to go!

    Little Mister's spelling is excellent. *grin*

  24. Wow! 100 posts! Way to go. That was a too cute post. Oh, and chocolate is my friend, so pick me! ;)

  25. HURRAY for 100!!! It does feel like an accomplishment doesn't it. And your 100th post was brilliant. Loved "The Little Mister's" input.

  26. What a fabulous idea!! And I guess we'll excuse him for not doing the 100 thing...he's to cute to blame!! Hope all is well!

  27. Congrats to you!!

  28. If it's not too late, count me in for that chocolate!
