Mommy is in training for the Baby Biathlon!
It is a funny thing living in a house: you are eye level with the world. When I crawl up to the front door, I can see outside. In Jerusalem, the door only leads to stairs. It is a new thing for me which causes bewilderment and then wonder on my part every time I reach the glass door.

So here I am on vacation and my philosophy is to start the days as soon as I can. That means, usually, 6:15 a.m. In Jerusalem when I have to wake up for school, I don't arise independently. I need nudging to wake up by 6:30 for a 15-minute turn around to catch the bus. Here though I am so chipper at the early hours that I spring up with the sun. I don't understand why the rest of the family doesn't join in. Mommy and abba try to coax me back to sleep so they also can sleep, but I know better. It is good to get an early start! So early in fact that I need my first nap by 9:30.

Mommy was bargaining with me, trying to convince me that it is better to sleep an extra hour in the morning and then take a later, longer nap. But she can't trick me.

And now, here is another episode of utter cuteness captured on video! Mimi has been indoctrinating me on the wonders of Veggie Tales. Not that I needed much convincing. Larry the Cucumber, pictured in this video with me, is the first stuffed toy for which I've shown any true attachment. And maybe I go a bit overboard with my newfound love, but what can I say? I have been known for my theatrics.
