Dinner w/ a Monkey


For the past couple of months we let Monkey Doodle eat on his own but this has got to be the most messiest he has ever gotten. He always uses his hands to feed himself even though he knows that the spoon is the utensil that he is supposed to use. He holds the spoon in his right hand and uses his left to eat.

He is definitly going to need a bath after this.


Big Boy

So this passed weekend we did a lot of work around the house. Especially Monkey's room because he is going to share a room in three months with his baby sister. So we got rid of a bunch of cloths one garbage bag, a basket and one suitcase full of cloths. We gave it to a friend of mine who recently had a baby boy. Also this weekend my mother got Monkey a toddler bed he has to start to get used to sleeping in it. He does not like it, but last night he slept the whole night, I did hear him complain for about 20 sec. around 5 am, that's about it. This morning Jose was getting ready to leave and he wanted to see that Monkey was OK and our poor little monkey was sleeping on the floor on his pillow between the bed and the rocking chair.

This is Monkey Doodle waking up this morning.


I knew that I would have a problem with Monkey taking a nap on his bed, but I thought just give him a bottle and he'll go to sleep. Well I thought it was working since i did not hear him. About a hour after I put him down I hear him playing, I did not want to go in the room because maybe he would fall asleep and if he saw me he might start crying. Silence and them i hear paper tearing, I am wondering where can he get paper from. I had completely forgotten that Jose bookcases are still in Monkeys room. When i went in the room it was to late monkey had destroyed two books. The bad news is that Jose does not know yet, you are the first to find out. That's not all he did he took his cloths out that took us all day Saturday to organize, and went crazy with his toys. I hope you enjoy the pictures of what Monkey's room looked after his nap, which I don't think that he took, by the looks of it. That sneaky little Monkey.

Doesn't he look Innocent? NOT

In this picture I was asking him what happened? All he said was HUH!


Grandma Silvia's Funeral

No I do not have a Grandma Silvia, we went to the theater yesterday and that was the name of the play. It was pretty funny. Its one of those plays where you are part of it, Jose actually got to carry the the coffin in and was being followed by the retarded grandson named Mark, and also was asked to try out to be a GO-GO boy after the funeral by the son of the funeral owner that made the funeral parlor into "Club Mortuary" at nights. I have heard of other plays that are like this one, I know there is one of a wedding, that one I am sure would be a lot more interactive because it more of a reception, and people are not sitting in rows like the funeral was. At least we got to do something new and some free time with out my monkey even though we missed him a lot but I think sometimes it is necessary, thank goodness for grandparents.
