I think Hobbes is a fan of Halloween. He didn't mind dressing up like a duck. I'm sure he would have done a lot more for the candy. Here is the little cutie all dressed up and knocking on Grandpa and Grandma Nash's door.

We had to work with Hobbes for weeks in advance to make sure he could actually say "quack" on Halloween night. You see, he loves dogs and it used to be that all animals said "woof, woof" to him. Now the dog says "woof", the duck says "quack", the cow finally says "moo", the bird finally says "tweet", the cat finally says "meow", and the monkey finally says "ou ou, ee ee". We are still working on the other animals.


I recently harvested a bunch of carrots from our garden. Hobbes had fun helping me pull them out. We encounter some strangely shaped carrots. Check out these two braided carrots. We also harvested a ball shaped carrot. After washing them off, Hobbes claimed the carrot ball and began devouring it. Yeah for fresh veggies!

These are a few of my favorite things...

Mail, markers, bubbles, and drumsticks.

Who doesn't love mail? Hobbes received his first correspondence that wasn't related to a birthday in September. It was a thank you letter from his Grandpa and Grandma Nash. Hobbes had recently spent the night at their home and they were thanking him for playing with them and being such a good boy. He thought it was awesome that he received his own letter in the mail.

A few months ago Hobbes realized he was strong enough to pull the caps off pens and markers. I think he decided to do something with that knowledge before Mom and Dad caught on and took them away. Here is the master at work.

Hobbes loves saying the word "bubble" and "pop". He says those words at least 10 times a day. But more than saying "bubble" and "pop" he loves to play with bubbles. Maybe that is why he was drawing on himself so he could take a bubble bath, hmmm.

Yum, drumsticks. Hobbes is just like his Mom and Dad, he loves ice cream. This picture was too cute to not post.


Grandma Snyder, Hobbes and I went to visit the Kunzlers in Moscow, ID. We went to visit and help Marianne before her baby came. I enjoyed visiting with Marianne and Wesley and helping them get more settled into their home. Hobbes had so much fun playing with his cousins. In the picture above Hobbes is drinking some milk with his cousin April. He had a lot of fun learning about sharing with April. She also taught him how to go up the stairs without crawling.
Hobbes really liked going to a playground with everyone. After watching Eliza, Ammon and Jenessa go down a slide, Hobbes built up enough courage to go down by himself. Don't worry, he didn't go down head-first. He turned around at the top and went down feet-first on his tummy.

Dru and Janessa Davis

After a 3 month hiatus from blogging, it's about time I catch up. I'll just share a few highlights that happened along with some adorable pictures of Hobbes.

In September Hobbes was a ring bearer in his Aunt Janessa's wedding. He looked adorable in his tuxedo. It was a little big but he didn't seem to mind. The wedding was beautiful and it was fun to spend the day with family and friends to celebrate the union of Janessa and Dru.

Hobbes did a wonderful job walking down the aisle. After the rehearsal we were a little worried that he wouldn't make it without Cheerios or fruit snacks to help encourage him to keep walking. But thanks to Michael, the other ring bearer, he did just fine.
