Ellie here. Did you know that it's almost Valentine's Day? And almost my birthday? And sometime around Valentine's Day, I'm giving away a lot of stuff, because even though it's my birthday, my mom said I have to share. Stay tuned for that.
Anyway, you probably know that my mom can't operate Gorilla Glue. I tried to warn her, but she just didn't listen. After the mess she made, she decided to go buy a cheap ice cube tray and make me a new toy. I'm pretty hesitant with my new toy, but one of these days, I'll decide to point. My new toy looks like this:
|(Ice cube tray with rubber bands, craft sponges, rice, sea salt, rocks, ribbon, cloth, paper clips, and whatever else attached with a glue gun.)|
My mom used a hot glue gun, so she had to make it while I was asleep. And see, that's why I shouldn't sleep. I miss important stuff, like hot glue.
Now that toy my mom made is okay, but I have some way better games I'd like to suggest to all my baby readers. One of my new favorite games is my elephant ball popper game. I can make it work all by myself because Mommy and Daddy taught me to push the red ball in the elephant's hand. When you push it, the elephant plays a song! The song is best before six in the morning. I like to sneak up on my ball popper and surprise everyone with pretty music.

And I have a coffee table game. I call it, "Hide From Grown-Ups." If your local grown-ups do something crazy like leave you in the living room for 30 seconds while they get another cup of coffee, crawl as fast as you can under the coffee table and hide. Part of this game is tricky - do NOT attempt to sit up under the coffee table. Coffee tables are not tall, and you will hit your head. Then you will not be hiding very well, because you will cry. But the grown-ups will feel sorry for you and rescue you. I play this game whenever Mommy gets coffee, and that's a lot.
"Baby Signing Time" is a great time for my another cool game. The key to this game is to get your Mommy or Daddy to let you watch "Baby Signing Time" on a Mac. Then, crawl to the Mac and hit the long bar at the bottom of the keyboard. The people on the movie will freeze! I tell you, babies, this trick is cool. But make sure a grown-up is nearby, because you have to hit the same button to make the people unfreeze. Sometimes, aiming at that button is tough. I usually just hit all the buttons at the same time, and that makes Mommy move really fast! "Baby Signing Time" is also good for learning "more," and I like "more."
Babies, what are your favorite games right now?
Love, Ellie L.
