Booga Update 10/24/06


Dear Family & Friends,

I am 9 months old today. I didn't have much of a growth spurt this month so, my weight is 21 lbs + 2 ozs and I'm 28 inches long. I'm still crawling, pulling myself up on things, standing while holding on to something, and trying to get this walking thing down. Hopefully, I'll be able to do it without holding on to things by next month. I have a total of four teeth now...two on the top and two on the bottom! In addition to the usual starter foods, I'm enjoying new stages of baby food and a variety of finger foods. I love clapping my hands and just recently, I learned how to shake my head to say "no". There are those who think I'm just shaking my head with no concept of what I mean but, I know better. I talk a lot but I'm not saying anything that anyone can really understand. I also like to scream when I'm really happy. I'm still having a good time at day care. I have a new friend that just started coming this month. She is around my same age, really nice, and cute! I've been trying to find out what her name is but she probably doesn't understand what I'm asking her and I don't understand what she is saying either. Communication is a little tough right now but, I'm sure we will both get better at it in time. Anyhoo, it feels good to have someone there that I can relate to and play with.

Now that summer's over and the weather is beginning to change, I've been sticking closer to home. My Cousin Joyce from Jacksonville, FL came to Philadelphia for a one-week visit with her auntie, my Great Grandmother "Pumpkin Pie". I really enjoyed meeting and spending time with her while she was here. Things were a little weird around my house for a couple of weeks this month because my Grandmother caught a cold that later turned into pneumonia. She was very sick and in the hospital for a week. I missed her not being around the house and picking me up from day care. My Mommy took me to see her while she was in the hospital and that made my Grandmother really happy. I had a good time with all the nurses while I was there too. They were all very friendly and nice to me. My Grandmother is back home now and everything is back to normal. As always, my Mommy, Grandmother, and Pop-Pop, all said to tell you "hello". We also want to thank you for your concern and prayers during my Grandmother's illness.

Well, I guess that's all for now. Look for my next update on 11/24/06. See you then!

Love, "The Booga..."

Cousin Joyce Comes To Visit!


My Great Grandmother "Pumpkin Pie", my Cousin Joyce, and me

Cousin Joyce is my great grandmother's neice and she came all the way from Jacksonville, FL to see us.

We all piled in the car for a drive and took my Cousin Joyce to The Bahama Breeze in King of Prussia, PA for a nice lunch.

My Pop-Pop, my Cousin Joyce, my Mommy, and me.

"Why am I the only one who has to sit in this high chair?"

My Mommy wanted to know if "The Booga" was hungry?

"Yes, and I don't want that baby food and milk you brought either. I'll have everything on this kid's menu, please."

My Cousin Joyce and my Pop-Pop

We also took my Cousin Joyce to the King of Prussia Mall.

My Mommy, my Cousin Joyce, and me chillin' in the stroller.

My Cousin Joyce really liked this lamp she saw at the mall.

I really liked all the kiddie rides I found at the mall!


Cousin Joyce, we really enjoyed your visit. Take care until we see you again, have a safe trip home, and tell your family we all said "hello"!

Love, "The Booga" & Family

Take A Rubber Ducky Break

Rubber Ducky Trivia

Ernie, a popular Muppet character from Sesame Street, has helped to popularize the floating rubber duck bath toy with his song "Rubber Ducky". Although rubber ducks existed long before the advent of this television show, the yellow rubber duck has achieved an iconic status in American pop culture. There are numerous "rubber duck" websites (just Google those two words and see for yourself)! In the United States, the rubber duck is often symbolically linked to bathing, bath tubs, babies, and toddlers. You should also know that Ernie's Rubber Ducky has an official birthday. It is January 13th and stands a good chance of one day becoming a National holiday. Now, there's a good reason to take a day off from work. Just stay home and relax in the tub with your Rubber Ducky!

Rubber Ducky Song (Sing-A-Long)

Rubber Ducky, you're the one.
You make bath time lots of fun.
Rubber Ducky, I'm awfully fond of you.
Rubber Ducky, joys of joys.
When I squeak you, you make noise.
Rubber Ducky, you're my very best friend, it's true!
Everyday when I make my way to the tubby,
I find a little fella who' cute, yellow, and chubby.
Rubber Ducky you're so fine,
And I'm lucky that you're mine.
Rubber Ducky, I'm awefully fond of you.
Everyday when I make my way to the tubby,
I find a little fella who's cute, yellow, and chubby.
Rubber Ducky, you're so fine,
And I'm glad that you're mine.
Rubber Ducky I'm awefully fond of...
Rubber Ducky I'd like a whole pond of...
Rubber Ducky I'm awefully fond of you!

Me & My Mommy

Mother's Day Teddy

A Mother is...

A mother is someone who will always be there,
in times of trouble and times of despair.
She will be your friend when you are alone,
and stay by your side without a mumble or groan.
She will give you all she has and when she is through,
she will reach in her heart and give her love too.
She will try her best to raise you up right,
and pass on her knowledge so you will make it in life.
She will teach you what is good and protect you from the bad,
and when you fail to listen her heart will become sad.
She will help you with problems by getting truly involved,
for no problem is too great for a mother to solve.
She will dry your eyes when you shed a few tears,
and come to your rescue when you panic in fear.
All these things and much more too,
are why a mother's love is sincere and true.
So, always be thankful to the LORD up above,
for blessing you with a mother who loves.

Written by My Grandmother (age 19) October 4, 1977

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
