Last weekend, I hung out with my Evans cousins. Zanya and I went to McDonalds and played on the playground. It was a ton of fun!

Sana Hilwa Ya Baba

Sirchow! That's kinda like "aloha" in Kurdish. My Baba taught me that. Speaking of my Baba, this Wednesday, August 29th, he's turning 50 years old! He's in Baghdad right now meeting with people like Syed Ammar al-Hakim, current leader of the Supreme Islamic Council of Iraq. So I made him this Birthday video to wish him a very SANA HILWA or pleasant year.

As a side note, my mom would like to make it crystal clear that tantrums are absolutely unacceptable and normally punished in our household. For the sake of this video, she let me off easy.

Booker and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Weekend

As you can see, I have a bad cold that makes my nose and eyes sick and crusty. My mom and dad keep wiping my face and I REALLY hate it. I wish they would just let me eat my snot. Who needs to see through their eyes anyway?

They took me to the mall playground to cheer me up and while I was playing, I fell on my head and got a big owie. Thanks a lot, mom and dad. You should have been watching me better.

Then, my parents thought a nice trip to the river might help everyone feel better. The water was too cold and everything smelt like beer. I think I have giardia now.

Finally, they took me to church even though I really needed a nap. So I threw up all over my dad's white shirt right before he had to teach a lesson. Parents. When will they learn? When I'm having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad weekend, then everyone suffers.

Finally I got to open my present. It was another ball toy and I don't need any help from mom or dad to play with this one. Now I have two fun ball toys to keep me busy.

I had a great day. I can't wait to do this again next year!

More Birthday

After dinner, my parents sang to me and helped me blow out my candle. Then they let me suck the frosting off several cupcakes. After that, we opened a card from my Grandma in Berlin. She sent me a lucky German penny!

Birthday Boy

Today was my birthday and I had a pretty fun day even though I'm sick. I took two unusually long naps (did I mention, I was really sick?) which gave my mom enough time to make a delicious dinner and some cupcakes for me.

Here's me enjoying my dinner of lemon herb salmon and asparagus. Dinner was good, but dessert was even better. Thank goodness my parents let me take off that ridiculous hat.

The Birthday Bean

My first birthday is not until Thursday, but my mom and dad couldn't wait to give me this fun toy.
