2010 began much as 2009 ended....finishing up the most epic move in mankind's history!

Not only that, but we added quite an impressive haul of toys and what-not to my arsenal of fun. People were so kind and generous for both Christmas and my birthday...I don't know where we're gonna find room for all this stuff!

We left Washington, DC and moved just up the road to Bethesda, MD. It was a move that put us closer to my daycare, into a bigger, newer apartment, and still within striking distance of our former digs. We were overwhelmed, but managed to get the move done...and we're excited about the new place! I have SO much room to crawl around now...even with all the stuff, I still manage to get a good workout every day.

Gramma Mindy and JustRichy came down to help, and they both helped out immensely. They managed to entertain me while Mom and Dad moved stuff, they helped clean, and they helped move an absurd amount of clothes, toys, books and other junk...

And that was just Mom and Dad's stuff! :-P

Luckily, my toys made it over in one piece. It had felt like FOREVER since I had seen them! (In reality, it was only a day or two, but a boy can play with pots and pans for only so long, you know...) Even though there was a blizzard, and tons of other obstacles to overcome, we made it! The tale of The Great Move is one that will live on in stories told around campfires to scare children, and legends retold to inspire those who have a tough move ahead of them.

We rang in the New Year with me asleep (Much like last year) and Mom, Dad, JustRichy, and Gramma Mindy watching a...shall we say unique streaming webshow of the NYC ball drop in Times Square. While it was odd, Mom and Dad appreciated that Gramma Mindy managed to find any live footage at all!

This is the third year that I have been part of the world (Granted, I only barely glimpsed 2008, but it still counts...) and I have enjoyed my time here immensely. There have been some challenges, and some difficulties, but in general things have been great, and I have had a lot of fun.

I have been blessed with a wonderful, loving family, some great folks at daycare a couple days a week (both caregivers and friends) and the enviable position of having a unique schedule that allows me to spend TONS of time with Mom and Dad.

I was able to visit family and friends up North (and a few down South) as often as I could, which I enjoyed greatly, but my only resolution for this year is to try and visit with the rest of my family more often, as I do enjoy seeing them as much as they enjoy seeing me.

I am excited to be starting a new decade, and looks forward to what my next year brings!

A very happy New Year to you all...thanks for reading, and I hope to see you all soon!

HAPPY 2010!!!

Why thank you! I know I did a good job, but it always feels a little better hearing it from someone else. ;-)

It was nice spending the New Year's with you!
