A Sincere Plea: Hush!

| 1 Comment

Some people appear to live under the delusion that Emily and I lead exciting lives, and that monthly (or even weekly!) Grinky.com! updates are therefore merited.

Allow me to set the record straight. This is my life:

IMG_2389.JPG

I have been assured that the days of my baby sister are similarly filled with tedium.

So please stop complaining about the dearth of new Grinky.com! content.

I promise you: If something interesting happens to either of us, I’ll let you know.

The Plumber

| 3 Comments

One day recently, Emily kept saying she wanted to show us something, but we couldn’t quite understand the words. We figured it out after she started to pull her pants down:

IMG_1664.JPG

Ah, yes. She wanted to show us “The Plumber.”

This weekend, my parents and Emily went to see the play If You Give a Mouse a Cookie:

IMG_3294.JPG

And our Independence Day fun included Grandma Janet, harmonica lessons, a big boat, and fireworks:

In truth, I don’t like fireworks. And that’s why my parents bought me the Thundershirt dog-anxiety solution.

Hey Thundershirt people! Where’s my product-placement dough?

Happy 2011, Year of the Big Girl!

| 2 Comments

Emily has enjoyed wearing her Happy New Year “headband” the past few days:

IMG_0751.JPG

IMG_0761.JPG

We celebrated the New Year with her at midnight GMT. I have no idea what that means.

Here Emily and I are sharing the bean-bag chair:

IMG_2421.JPG

This wonderful invention is a recent discovery for me, even though we’ve had it for well over a year.

2011 will be the Year of the Big Girl. On New Year’s Eve, Daddy and Mommy magically transformed the crib into a big-girl bed — which allows Emily to enter and exit at will.

I don’t expect this will go well.

Our Christmas

Grandma Janet visited the weekend before Christmas:

IMG_0579.JPG

She brought a cape and muff for Emily, among many other things:

IMG_0508.JPG

On Christmas morning, Santa brought Emily a Tinkerbell umbrella and Tinkerbell slippers, just as she requested:

IMG_0705.JPG

IMG_0726.JPG

(And a Tinkerbell bowl, and Tinkerbell underwear, and ... .)

The day after Christmas, Emily assisted in the making of this very small, devil-eyed snowperson that bears a striking resemblance to my Daddy:

Here’s Emily in front of our tree:

Here’s me in front of our tree:

Dog of the Month

You’re looking at the April dog of the month at my day-care provider:

IMG_8924.JPG

I’ve been too busy beaming (as you can see) to post anything here.

In other news, Grandma Janet visited:

IMG_8974.JPG

Grandma gave her a book that reads itself:

IMG_8932.JPG

Emily got her nails painted:

IMG_9091.JPG

She sang to her Mama’s doll while sitting her Daddy’s rocking chair:

And whatever this is:

Cover Model

You’ve probably seen my modeling work on the cover of the new album by Weezer:

weezer.jpg

Between you and me, I don’t think they’ve done anything good since Maladroit, but when they offer you the big treat payday, whatcha gonna do?

In case you’re skeptical:

By the way, I don’t do “the leap” without serious compensation. Bitch gotta get paid.

Grandparents in September

Last month, grandmas and grandpa all visited.

Emily went to a Riverfront Pops concert:

And then Grammerly and Gramperly came:

They dressed me up at day care:

“Uncle(s)!”

My uncles Doug and Bruce visited this past weekend. My cousin Liza, too:

20090815-uncles.jpg

Uncle Doug read Emily a story:

20090814-story.jpg

I am certain this is not an approved use of this device:

20090815-contraption.jpg

What Emily doesn’t know is that the alligator predates her by many, many years:

20090815-gator.jpg

Emily also decided that she wanted to take me for a walk:

Bye Bye, Little Red Car

You served your Momma well, and I yakked in you, but now it’s time to say goodbye:

Plus, Emily has found a new mode of transit:

Wagons, Waffles, Slides, and Stairs

Emily busted out her red wagon recently:

20090517-wagon.jpg

Here, I’m patiently waiting for a waffle. I definitely did not steal any waffle bits from my sister:

20090530-waffle.jpg

Emily’s day-care provider took this lovely photo:

20090520-slide.jpg

What’s around that corner?

Emily had some turkey for Thanksgiving, although it came from a jar:

Three generations of the human women of Momma’s side of the family:

Emily and her great grandmother:

My Thanksgiving was spent hunting squirrels:

... and not a drop to drink?

20081104_monkeys.jpg

Emily likes to eat the sun ...

20081110_tasty_sun.jpg

... and magazines.

20081109_magazines.jpg

She’s also quite the model.

20081108_closeup.jpg

Some people have complained that I don’t even show up on my Web site anymore.

20081105_eating.jpg

Happy, Auntie Desiree?

I’d like to complain that you haven’t sent me any damned dog treats.

That’s Entertainment!

Momma and Daddy are sure this will soon become annoying, but for now, they can’t stop laughing:

And Abima wants you to know that he is Daddy’s favorite Ugly Doll, which is why he sneaked in to the right side of the picture. Babo is displeased.

No Party for Old Dogs. (Hmmph.)

We drove to Ohio to see Grandma:

20080801_grandma.jpg

There was a party for Emily to which I was rudely not invited. My Uncle Doug was there:

20080802_dancing_e.jpg

Emily read/ate one of her books:

20080802_e_and_p.jpg

More fun with Grandma:

20080802_grandma.jpg

Rose Marie hosted the party, and then put Emily to sleep:

20080802_rose_marie.jpg

Then we drove home. We were very tired:

Emily is riding on Daddy’s shoulders and grabbing his hair:

She and I also played with Goose:

My cousin Liza visited this weekend:

20080622_liza.jpg

Not much else new.

Oh yes. My uncles Doug and Bruce came to visit:

20080621_bruce.jpg

Uncle Doug has many skills. Now we know from where Emily gets it:

20080621_fist.jpg

Emily experienced her first farm implements:

20080621_deere.jpg

She also surveyed Mississippi River flooding from on high:

20080621_flood.jpg

And she rejected her first solid food:

Feet and Flag Day

Today is Flag Day, so Emily wore appropriate footwear:

20080614_flag_day.jpg

She has also discovered her feet:

Gotcha!

At the Drive-In

All four of us went to the drive-in movie theater to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We did not stay for Drillbit Taylor.

20080607_drive_in.jpg

I paid more attention to some cats than the movie.

An Emily First: Pool Time!

Emily went to the pool on Saturday:

20080517_pool.jpg

She also played with me on Sunday, but I didn’t want to share Purple Dog:

20080518_playtime.jpg

Here are some feet, with a baby attached:
