Fill 'er up!
I also have a rice paddle
This week mommy also made some yummy Mexican food. We had tortillas, which it turns out I love!
Who knew they had tortillas in Massachusetts?
What happened to my tortilla?

Clipping dollar bills to St. Anthony. Mommy said they do this at the Buddhist temple in Rowland Heights too, except there's no St. Anthony there.
After walking around, Mommy and Daddy bought some food, and we sat down on somebody's doorstep. My parents were little piggies! They had a fried rice ball, a sandwich, and a calzone! I had lunch too (sweet potatoes, bleh). I was much more interested in what they were eating.
I want that one.
Afterwards, we walked around the North End to Hanover St. since Mommy wanted cannoli from Mike's Pastry for dessert. When we got there, the place was so packed there was no room for me and the stroller. So Daddy was on duty to get the cannoli. Alas, none for me (again!). They do eat too much, don't they? Good thing they're exercising more now.

Now that I'm mobile, I can explore my room a bit. After rolling to the wall and tugging on that black stringy wiry thing, I rolled myself under the crib. It's neat under there! There's all this space, and I found my turtle, which was my first toy ever. I like it when daddy watches me instead of mommy. I can go anywhere I want!

A package came in the mail yesterday from a William Zane. I don't know any William Zane, but I had mommy open the package for me just in case it was dangerous.
It turned out that it was from Uncle Billy doing a favor for Aunty Kathy and Aunty Leng. The package had overalls and a hat in it. They're too big on me for now, but maybe I'll grow into them.
If you other people want to send me clothes too, I will model them on my blog for you to see. I wear a size 6-9 or 6-12 months. Just kidding. I have lots of clothes to wear. For now... :)

This is the courtyard of the Boston Public Library. Daddy was really excited about their exhibit with lots of old maps.
Mommy and I had some lunch while daddy went to look at the maps.
Here I am eating my lunch in Copley Square. That's the library in the background.
After lunch it was time for a nap. I'm protecting my carrot stick for later. I saw daddy eyeing it.
This is the last picture I saw of my carrot stick. Daddy, do you know where it went?
Later we went to walk around the Public Gardens again. The famous swan boats were out on the water, but I was asleep so mommy and daddy just walked by the ticket booth.
Looks like lots of people wanted a ride. Maybe next time, daddy?

One of the places we went into the KB Toys Outlet. At first mommy and daddy showed me these toys that they claimed were for 6 months and up, but I didn't like them. Too many flashing lights and sounds. Please... I have more refined tastes. Mommy and daddy found some age appropriate toys that they remembered from when they were little, so I got these and a new rattle. My old ones were getting worn out anyway.
Who needs flashing lights? Stacky rings and snappy beads are fun!
The next day we went to lunch at a place called the Elephant Walk. There were lots of pictures and tiny toy elephants all over the restaurant, but no real ones. But I was okay with that because mommy and daddy gave me lunch while they were waiting for theirs.
Is it time to eat yet?
Here's my "teeth" but they're just barely coming out of my gums so they're real tiny. If you click on the picture, you might be able to see them.
Here I'm "flossing" my teeth with my toy leash. Actually, I'm just moistening it carefully from one end to the other so when mommy picks me up, she'll have a fun surprise.
After lunch we went shopping for some more food. I don't know why the grownups wanted more food. They had just stuffed themselves. We went back to the place called Super 88. It's an Asian market that has all the stuff from back in LA, according to mommy. I enjoyed myself looking at some super-size veggies.
Is this a really small watermelon? Or a really big pepper?
Mmmm! Mommy buy this one to make me sweet potatoes!

I now fit into Uncle JT's shirt. Here I am with my Exersaucer and caterpillar link. My favorite thing to do with this link is to bang it on the Exersaucer and then throw it on the ground.
Where should I throw this?
I've also been practicing my standing. I can do about ten seconds now without falling down. That is, if my arms and stomach are propped up against the back of the sofa and daddy is watching my butt.
Daddy, you're covering up my bear!
Also, I've learned how to drink from a sippy cup. Since I won the bottle game (here and here) with daddy, I haven't had any liquids to drink except directly from mommy. This week I drank a whole ounce of cold water from the cup. It felt nice on my aching gums.
I know how to hold the sippy cup too!

You might ask, "Who is Eric Carle?" He's the guy who wrote A Very Hungry Caterpillar, and illustrated my favorite book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? When mommy and daddy reads this book to me, they say, "Roar, I see Baby Owen looking at me!" and I have to smile.
At the museum bookstore, mommy was excited to find a version of Very Hungry Caterpillar in Thai: Nhon Jom Hew. Only 215 baht (less than $6)! We'll have to get one when we go to Thailand someday.
There was a long line to meet Mr. Carle
These murals in the wall are like the papers that Mr. Carle uses to make his illustrations. He paints on tissue paper, cuts out shapes, and arranges them to make pictures.
After two hours, we're almost to the front of the line
I got so excited, I

I've been practicing on lots of things... mommy's finger, daddy's shirt, smushed up food, seahorse... Got to get ready for that Thanksgiving turkey!
Mommy offered me some cantaloupe (which she chewed up a little first)
It's easier when she puts it into my mouth
More practicing with my new tooth
I've got to keep it clean for the tooth fairy!

Last week, my cousin Sydney, who is 5 years old, wanted our address from Grandma. She wanted to send us a letter! Grandma sent her on to Aunty Ying, who helped her write out the envelope. Here is what she sent us. I am so impressed with how well she writes. She even addressed the envelope. Check out the return address! I hope I can write as well as she can when I am 5.

Is this the menu? What shall I have?
That night we went out to celebrate Uncle Sameer's birthday. We went to the Charles River Esplanade with his family. I met another new baby, Baby Ronak.
Uncle Sameer, Ronak, Daddy and me
It was after my usual bedtime, so when I woke up and we were still out, I was very surprised. Still, I loved the view, and everyone was so nice that I stayed up socializing until 9! I fell asleep as soon as we got back in the car, and I overslept the next morning. I didn't wake up until 6:00 AM!
Mommy and me enjoying the early evening sun
