I need a tailor

Walking is something I make a regular attempt at. Here's the thing.....my belly is wider than my legs are long, therefore my pants tend to be a little on the lengthy side. I've spoken to ammi about this and she assures me she'll get right on it.


Despite what ammi wants, I don't want to wear shoes. But come on, aren't these jeans fabulous! My aunty Shabana sent them to me all the way from the UK, she must be a fashion designer with all the cool clothes she sent!


Okay, it's left, right, left, right........you are filming aren't you? This could be it!

Weekend Getaway

Last weekend Ammi and I went up north to see the Grime's. I met them once in April, but I really have no recollection of such meeting. I had a lot of fun and got to do all sorts of neat things.




The beds in this place are soooo cozy! They tried to stick me in the closet in what appeared to be a cage, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? You know, this bed is actually heated.....awww sweet slumber awaits!


Um, is anyone aware of the dangerous animals roaming freely on the grounds? I'm not sure what this beast is up to, but I don't think I'll stay between it and the door!


Would someone mind waving a stick or something and distracting this four legged creature, I'd like to get to the toys!


Wait....there's MORE?


I got to play with Anna Piper's toys. I hope she doesn't mind. She has great taste in toys, I think we could be good friends.


Well hello there. You must be Mr. Grimes. I'll call you papa grimes. Why yes, I would like you to read me a story, thank you.


I thought being on memaw Grime's lap I'd be safe...but here's yet ANOTHER creature. My goodness, it's like Sigfried and Roy!


Hey there, can I give you a hand? Let's just say I'm second generation helper!

drum roll please

Well, I've finally done it....I'm standing all on my own! Not only is this standing a hoot, the falling on my bottom is pretty fun too. You should try it sometime, it brings much enjoyment. (pay no attention to the stuff in the backgroun, all part of our preparing to move to be with daddy)



The villagers all ran into their huts in fear the giant would crush them.

gobble gobble gobble

Since it's well known I love food, it should be of no surprise I was excited to hear of this "Thanksgiving". A day devoted to eating??!!! Goodness, how I longed for something like this throughout my life.



Mom and Papa came up for the big day. I got a new outfit and was all set to hit the fine establishment where this great feast was to take place. I'm sure glad they came, as you see-it takes two to carry me.....plus, they are a lot of fun.




Ammi doesn't really enjoy getting her picture taken-but since this was another first for me, I talked her into being part of the great documentation process. Well, I don't know she agreed, so much as "okay fine" was sort of the end of our little talk. geesh,parents these days.




WHAT THE...... this is it??? This is all I get??? Where's the feast, the platters of food...the turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing.....I got robbed....


Okay, well....I admit, I did make quite a mess on the floor with the veggies ammi
gave me (except the bell pepper, I LOVE the bell pepper). From that moment, ammi stopped putting food in front of me-so I just shared from her plate. Um, this stuffing is a little dry people.

Next we'll go cow tipping

Sometimes there's just not much to do. At least I have myself to keep me occupied.

Raining cookies!!!!

Ammi tries.....but she just couldn't manage to get me and all the stuff brought in without problems. As she put me down, she dropped my new cookies...hee hee hee. Luckily for me she had frozen stuff to get put away first.


Hmmm, just how did she get those cookies out before.



BUSTED! Before my stash got confiscated ammi decided to snap a few shots. Too bad...I almost had 'em.

Our new hats

Ammi got a hat made special at the mall, it says Pakistan....just like where my daddy lives. I got a new stocking hat...it has the symbol for the St. Louis Cardinals. Okay okay, I know what you're thinking....me and Ammi must both root for the underdogs!

Sorry it's a little blurry, Mr. Clyde didn't know it would auto focus first.

$1,000,000 baby

Nani and Clyde like to go to "the boat". I've not been there, but they are preparing me.



OOOHHHHH, it's Texas HOLD 'em. Hmmm, we may need a new deck of cards over here.

Ode to the wigga sistas!

This is my new track suit....ammi has come across this brand "Krawlers", they have these great little padded knees just for cuties like me as we make our way about town. Plus, they come in handy for hip hop dancing. Now she's on the prowl for anything with their symbol on it. This post is my shout out to a good friend, and to show off how cute I am.



"You gotta fight.....for your right....to PAAAARRRRDAAAYYYY"


Peace out, yo

I just love memaw's and papa's house

Now that I'm mobile I can explore my surroundings much more efficiently. This past weekend we took a quick trip to memaw and papa's house and I had a blast!




Ammi and Papa thought they hid the candles....NOPE, I found them within 2.5 seconds.


Mema and Papa saw this and thought I'd enjoy it, and boy were they right. There are so many surprises, papa was nice enough to come down and help me fish through them all. What fun!


With the Cardinals out of the World Series I've lost interest in the post season, but my family are all pretty big fans of baseball regardless...come on guys, there must be something better on!


Let's see......ooohhhh, Miss Congeniality....one of my favs! (to the left me, you can see...I don't like things on shelves or tables)

Twice my age

Well, I've hit that mark, I'm now as old outside as was inside, and I've grown just as much. Sadly, still lacking in the hair area....but it's all good. I even have 2 1/3 teeth!


I realize it doesn't make sense to wear a sweater and not socks, but my feet were HOT!



In another dress from Aunty Shebana (doesn't she have great taste?) And, yes, that is a bhindi on my head....representin' the south side!!! (of asia that is)


Ammi wasn't quite ready, but the lady took the pic and everyone loved it....yeeehawwww!



I can slober on command now....just say the word, but in Urdu, cause I don't know "kiss" in English.



My first Halloween costume....I'm supposed to be a monkey, but ammi says those ears just make me look like Yoda. Cute I am hmmmm.


The original of this picture was actually a goof on the camera lady, but ammi loved it and fixed it up......she likes my eyes...and that look of gettin' into trouble :)

da da da da da, I'm lovin' it

Well, they aren't the usual organic multi-grain that I get at home.....but they are pretty good. Ammi took me to McDonalds for breakfast the other day, and it's not all bad. I had plain pancakes, I ate two all by myself!


Let's see, piece of pancake, piece of pancake, piece of pancake......where's the butter and syrup??



You know.....these aren't half bad!


WHAT? Do you mind, I'm trying to shovel...err, umm, I mean eat.


Hey, where did everything go? No bother, I seem to have a few pieces stuck to my bib....mmmm, tasty!

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Well, the weather has finally gotten FRIGGIN COLD! but this past weekend was very nice. I finally got to wear my nifty sweater from Aunty Shebana in the UK. It was fun to play in the leaves.




Let me get this straight.....these fall from the trees and turn yellow and brown. Hmmm, guess it's not too strange, daddy's hair falls from his head and turns grey.....



Okayyyyy, waiting........geesh, these things don't fall very fast.


Okay, okay, I get it...we pile them up and then play in them. They are kind of crunchy though, makes me bum itch!


WHERE DID THIS THING FALL FROM?????

The one and only.....ME

I seeeeee youuuuuuuu.


I wonder.........



What do you think?


SEE YA!

A fall day

Saturday was nice by mid-morning. We had breakfast at a local joint, (I got to eat a plain pancake!) then we went to the park for a little swinging and people watching. All in all....it was a nice time, I'm glad ammi has the weekends free.



Give me land lots of land......

Sunday was a beautiful day! I was told to stay on the sheet, but c'mon!!!! You can't keep a girl locked up!!!!




That's why she's a speech major

My ma LOVES the camera....but she just doesn't do filming very well. I'd like to show off my mad communication skills.....you may want to flip your monitor.



THUMPER!

Mr. Clyde has this beast they call a dog. She's nice....I'm always trying to get her attention and she just ignores me, NOW she wants play.....great timing canine!

But I'm not tired!

Ammi likes me to go to bed by 8, but there are days I'm not ready and would rather play. Sometimes I win, sometimes I don't. Today was a winner! 8:15 and I'm still clowning around!

Don't worry ammi, someday you'll be in charge.


C'mon, it's just a few more minuets!


It's good to be queen!
