Okay, three theories on this one:
1.  Big Bird forgave Tasha for putting him in the oven and is now her friend.
2.  Tasha wasn't the one who put Big Bird in the oven, she was there trying to rescue him, and they were already friends.
3.  Big Bird is now afraid of Tasha and is trying to get on her good side.

Scary Sight!

I got up in the middle of the night, and I felt like I caught Tasha in the act.  Who knew Tasha had an evil side?  I think the jealousy of Big Bird got the best of her.

The Backyardigans

This morning I discovered that Caiti finally remembered she had other friends besides Big Bird.
I was trying to find the other Backyardigan, Tasha.  I found her visiting with Big Bird.  I think she was trying to get on his good side so she could play with Caiti more often.

Busy Intersection?

I'm still wondering why Bert was directing traffic at the Christmas tree.  Caiti's the only one that causes any traffic over there.

Michelangelo's New Home

I think Michelangelo thought this was a sewer when he decided to reside here.  Pretty close, I would say.

A Helper

I need to stop complaining that nobody helps out around the house.

Merry Christmas!!!

Big Bird must feel right at home sitting in a tree.

Big Bird's Thanksgiving

 Sorry Big Bird.  I get your hint, but we're not going anywhere this year for Thanksgiving.
At least Caiti lined up the spoons in a nice row for you so you can be ready for your feast.  I'm guessing you're not eating the turkey.  That would just be wrong.  If I had thought about it, I would have made you a nice bird seed pie.

Sharing her Experiences

So, since Caiti, Big Bird, Elmo and Grover are becoming such fast friends, was I surprised when she took everyone's plates of veggies that they weren't eating over to share with them...

Or when she dragged them into her ABA therapy session so that they could learn some behavioral things too?

Is this Sesame Street... Sesame Ave... Sesame Blvd???

Elmo and Grover are daredevils.  I always find them perched on some ledge or the other.  Note Big Bird's feet peaking out on the dishwasher.  I think the dishwasher is one of his nests at my house. Someone is on a Sesame Street kick lately.

Happy Birthday

For Caiti's birthday, we thought it would be fun for her to find some new friends. 
...and we were right!

Caiti and Friends: The Movie

Hide and Go Seek

 Sometimes I think Caiti's friends are playing Hide and Go Seek.  Why else would Dora be in the linen closet messing up all my blankets and sheets?
 I don't think Pig will see Curious George.  That was a great place to hide.
 Elmo and Grover easily found Big Bird because...seriously...Big Bird ALWAYS hides there.
 Pig did find best friends, Flamingo and Elephant.  I was just glad they hid by the diapers.  That was pretty smart.  Then they wouldn't have to give up their hiding places if they needed a potty break.
 I think these two thought they wouldn't be noticed if they just played dead.  That never works.
After all, Caiti is good at finding...and hiding her toys.  She always knows where they are.

Bored Friends

Caiti's friends hate when she is at school because mommy makes them hang out in the boring bins all squished together.  Good thing she'll be home soon.  They never have to stay there too long.

Playing Outside

These Sesame Street guys are kind of a clique.  They seem to hang out mostly with each other.

 You'd think they'd let Curious George hang out too, since he's from PBS...but Dora and Baby Jaguar are nice to everyone.

 I knew that more people would end up enjoying the swingset than just Garrett, Caiti's brother. 
 There, they look better sharing the teeter-totter.  Caiti showed them who's boss.  No more leaving the other friends out.
 Boots is a monkey, though, so he can manage something like a teeter-totter all by himself.  He has those great skills.

 All that playing has made Big Bird tired.  His natural instincts led him to this little tree that mommy didn't realize was growing randomly in the back yard.  Too bad he didn't have time to build a nest first.

Caught in the Act

It's Not Easy Being Green


Who knew Caiti's friends were so good at balancing.  I'm afraid of heights.  I would NEVER be as brave as they are.


 Caiti normally screams when we make her take a bath, but we found some of her long-lost bath-time friends and surprised her with them, and she had no problem with a bath after that.
 Of course, the majority of her bath was spent on the outside of the tub, watching her toys swimming and throwing them in to see how big of a splash they would make or if they would float.

Anything it takes to get her in the tub and nice and clean!  I'm so glad for Caiti's friends.

Caiti's Meeting

 Big Bird was hiding this morning...maybe he remembered the oven incident from yesterday.
 Caiti found Big Bird first thing , but then she got a little lonely and found some other friends.
She even found Frog, who was tired from yesterday's TV watching, so she hid in the bathroom today.  Maybe she wanted to remind everyone to brush their teeth.

 Caiti didn't think the bathroom was the best place for Frog to take a bath...let's try the dishwasher.

 From there, Caiti decided to have a meeting with all her friends, so she lined them up so they could see her better when she talked to them.
I think these fishies were a little jealous of where Caiti put Big Bird and Bear...

 and I think Big Bird and Bear were bored...

 But the rest of them seemed happy to be there...even Oscar the Grouch...Odd...

 They always say to look for pigs in the kitchen...

 Of course Flamingo and Elephant were sitting by each other for Caiti's meeting.  These two are the best of friends.  You will never find one without the other...and their other best friend is of course, Caiti.
