It gets hot on the soccer field

I have started attending my parents' soccer games more regularly now that the weather is nice. I mostly sit outside and clap for them when they play well, or turn my head and pretend that I have not been looking when they miss. It is quite entertaining.

My second first birthday

This is my second birthday celebration at our daycare center together with 3 other kids who are born in June. Isn't that cool? I think it is very nice to have more than one birthday, or maybe even have one everyday. I have to discuss this with my parents.
But can you see what I am doing? It turned out that all the other parents didn't mind if their toddlers stuffed their noses in cake and frosting and turned their tongues green.So my parents had to let me have it too, and even keep up a good face about it too. Doesn't it teach you a lesson? ( I sure have learned mine ;-))

Missing you all

Although there were lots of friends and family with us to celebrate my birthday, I know that there were some of them-including my grandmas and grandpas-who could not. I know that most if them live far away, and I am putting this picture here to remind all of them that no distance is too far. " There is no such place as faraway-Door va bas nazdeek".

My birthday guests (continued)

And here is my famous and handsome Amoo Arash whom you may remember from last year's posts. He was a classmate of my parents in Medical school in Iran and is such a Ba Hal person. We went to Treman Park where there is a huge waterfall and he jumped in the water and even tried walking up the waterfall. I may want to be like him when I grow up.

My birthday guests

Here are Khale Shohre and Amoo Farhad who came all the way from California and carried with them lots of gifts for me. They even had something for my mom and dad, which was quite a relief because I was getting worried they may never stop playing with MY toys.

My first birthday

Well, this was my 'first' birthday not only just because I turned one year old, but also because I had another one coming in just a few days! I will tell you about that later.
Here my mom served cake for all the guests, but I was only allowed to try a very small piece which didn't even have frosting on it. You cannot imagine how fussy these guys are about things I can or cannot eat, nobody ever thinks of asking my opinion too. But then I guess they have done a good job so far, and I am sure I can have much more freedom as time passes. Just wait and see....

Tavallodam Mobarak!

Attention everyone! It is my birthday :-) I will be born in-well- almost 7 hours!!! My mom and dad already had a huge birthday party for me on Friday. Lots of my friends came, and we had so much fun. I got many many cool presents, and my parents and I have been playing with them over the weekend (I am thinking of giving my red lobster squishy pillow to my mom, the poor thing likes it so much...she did not even get one small present for all her hard work!)
I just wanted to give you guys a glimpse of my Elmo birthday cake. Details will come later and yes, I know I have not updated my blog for three months. Just stay tuned :-)

Ithaca festival's parade

The people of my town do a lot of strange things, but from what I hear it is pretty much the same all over the world. Here we were watching Ithaca festival's parade from the balcony of our friend Patricia's house. There was a man on a very tall monocycle, and in ballerina clothes dancing around cars. There was also a chain saw squad which freaked me and the rest of the babies present out. However, aside from all the weird stuff that was going on, I enjoyed the music and did my first dance moves, which made it a very important day for us.

Helping with the unpacking

We moved to a new apartment at the beginning of June, and I watched as my parents were frantically packing and unpacking and moving huge boxes around. I thought they could use some help, so I started unpacking my toys and finding a place for them in the drawer under the TV. These days it is never turned on because my parents have lost the remote. I am wondering why?
