Ever since Tyler was about 15 months old and could really move on his own, he discovered the joy of having a pet. It used to be that he would crawl up to the cat (Puck)and she would run off, usually jumping over a baby gate to get away from him. However, as he has grown, he has gotten a lot smarter about how he interacts with Puck. He now "plays" with her (note the green martian in front of the cat on the couch). This weekend, he asked to give "Baby Kitty Puck-Puck" (as he calls her) some treats. He sat on the floor in the kitchen and watched as she ate them up. At night, he seeks her out to give her a kiss-- such a sweet sight to see! Last weekend, cat hunting was a sport in the Genovese household. Tyler and his friend Olivia went searching over three floors to find the cat. Us adults didn't mind, the kids were entertained. So in a way, not only has she turned out to be a great playmate, but also a wonderful babysitter!
As the saying goes, it isn't over until the fat lady sings..... She sang LOUD AND CLEAR last night! We watched in horror and shock as the Patriots won their game and then the Packers LOST theirs. Needless to say, this household has been in a deep state of mourning all day today. We had a great time as a family watching the game and cheering on the green and gold-- that is until overtime. Those of us who were still awake were very sad and quite upset that SuperBowl weekend will bring the one thing we have come to dislike the most-- a Patriots game! The real connundrum is who do we root for? The Patriots (who we can't stand), or the Giants (who beat my beloved Packers)??????

Tonight my Grandpa Perry sent my mommy this song from Youtube. My mommy listened to it and she said that she remembered this song from when she was a kid. She said that it was on Sesame Street, but I don't remember the kids on Sesame Street looking or dressing that way when I watch it! I also don't see Elmo there, but I will take her word for it! Enjoy!

This is a photo of me that was taken when I was about 2 months old. My mommy and daddy took me to Indiana for Thanksgiving and I got to go and see Santa Claus. I can't believe I was this tiny! My mommy thought that we should share this picture because I am getting to be a big boy! Tonight I pooped on the potty for the VERY FIRST TIME! I have been scared to go poopy on the potty becuase I thought that I would fall in. But my mommy sat next to me and we took out time. She was right, only mo poopy went into the potty! My mommy and daddy were so excited, they said that they were proud of me and that I have grown up so much! We all danced around the kitchen! They said that now I can go out and do special things that I couldn't do when I was this small! I am so excited, too!
Here are Conor, Skylar, Papa, and I at the restaurant. We were waiting for everyone to finish with their dinner so we could go and get ice cream. I got cookies and cream with M&M's!
This is what mommy and daddy were doing after us kids went to bed.....
Happy New Year Aunt 'Rette and Uncle Jim!
The next morning even us kids were tired. We spent a lot of time watching the train under the tree while all of our mommy's and daddy's rested. I guess they didn't go to bed early the night before!
Mommy and I made sure we packed our IU gear to wear on New Years Eve (thanks, Heather for the shirt!). Here we are waiting for the game to start. After awhile, mommy was kind of quiet and didn't have much to say. She said that I could probably take my shirt off and put on my jammies. She said the shirt would be better of being worn next year!
