West on Today, Today


We have a winsome, yet reluctant celebrity in the family. And it certainly isn't going to his head.
West was on the Today Show this morning making his More Rockin' Moroccan Peanutty Pita sandwich with the four other adorable little girl finalists. I don't know if he realizes how lucky he is. Does any child? West looked so small and timid on TV. It made me want to poke him in the ribs and make him smile. But I wasn't anywhere near him; I was in the lobby, hobnobbing with Curtis Stone. Curtis Stone! Not really hobnobbing, but begging for photos and smiling adoringly. He's about as kind as they come, but we'll talk about that later.

Anyway, I was glad that West was on with Hoda and Ralph Machhio. In case you are wondering, Ralph looks approximately two years older than Westy. I wanted to wrap the two of them up in a soft blue banket, my West and the Karate Kid, pinch their cheeks and feed them a jar of vanilla custard baby food. Two wee babes in arms and neither one of them hogs for attention. Hoda was sweet too, and the last thing she says on the video made me burst out laughing. Something like "Look at West-he just wants to get out of here!" I think she was right, because he perked right up, and recovered his strength by gulping down an entire frozen mint hot chocolate at Serendipity.
All I can say is that we are having the very best of times. I honestly don't care about the outcome of the cook-off. We feel like winners just for the experience and the finalist prize of $2500. But hurry over and watch my boy on the Today show, before they whisk away the link. And once again, thank you, dear readers for voting for my little peanut butter celebrity.
P.S. Sailor is happy too, since she made it on the show as one of the jumpy fans peeking through the Today Show windows. Phew. That was easy.
P.S.S. For my New Yorkers, West will be on channel 11 in NYC tomorrow morning around 7ish.

Everyone at my house was screaming with excitement to see Mr. West on TV. It was so great.
He did wonderfully! He looked so little and cute and boyish. (He and Ralph Macchio).
We are all really proud of him! It did kind of feel like him being on the Today Show was the grand prize...I almost forgot there is still a cook-off!
Good Luck! We love you all!

Julie Harward said...

I know how proud you are of him mom...and you have every right to be...have lots of fun! Come say hi :D

Seth and Julie said...

How cute! Thanks so much for posting the link. My mom called me at 8AM to tell me he would be on and to make sure and watch, but hello...it was 10AM for me out here in the midwest and I was so bummed out. He is just the cutest thing, and looked half the age of the other kids. How impressive that he did this! Also, since I am already rambling, does anyone ever say that he looks like Papa (grandpa)? I see it in his eyes and facial expressions. Makes my heart jump around all happy like. Here's hoping for the big win but hanging out in NY drinking frozen hot chocolate and starring on morning television...it sounds like he could already do a victory lap. AWESOME experience!

Marie said...

Oh, how I wish I could have seen him. I am sure he did wonderfully. I have the priveledge of meeting Curtis Stone several years ago and having my picture taken with him. He was so handsome and so very nice! xxoo

The Blonde Duck said...

It was so exciting to see Little West on TV! My kids were thrilled. Adam Michael was so glad to see how well his pal did and Annaliese was so excited because she was the one who spotted Sailor in her adorable red coat in the background. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time in NYC. We hope Westy wins! His recipe really and truly looked the most delicious! Good luck!

Virginia said...

If the winner was chosen for adorable-ness West would win hands down!!! Congratulations!

Kerstin said...

Awww, congrats to your little guy!

Michal said...

We loved watching that clip! So proud of West in his TV debut. No surprise that he's doing so well in cooking competitions!
So glad that Sailor got to be on TV, too. How perfect.

Leslie said...

We loved watching West. We were all so excited to see him, and I was so glad Jordan was home to see him with me. We couldn't stop smiling and were so happy for him. He did so well, and he looked so cute.
I thought he looked like little Jack when Jack was little.
I also thought it was funny he was on with Ralph Macchio, The Karate Kid, because Jack always reminded me of him when he was a teenager.
I was wondering if anyone else happened to think that.
Well, it was so fun to see Shane and Sailor in her little red coat waving.I recognized her immediately at the window and knew she was excited for her brother. We were too, in our living room!
We loved the whole show, and felt very proud of West and your whole family. I can wait to see what's in store for you next.

Leslie said...

That was can't, can't wait to see what's in store for you next.
I really can't.

Lainee said...

Good job West!

Catherine said...

I talked to Leslie yesterday and she told me that Sailor and the Quiet Man were waving in the background, so I went back and watched it again. She looked so cute and so happy for her brother. How exciting for all of you (and us too actually. =D )

Adrienne said...

What a fun time :) And yeah, that last comment she made about West was pretty hilarious. His recipe sounds soooo good. They all did actually...I hope he wins.

Rich'n'Rach said...

We were just in NYC and enjoyed ourselves that same treat at Serendipity earlier this week! Congrats, and good luck - such fun times!

Nickki said...

I just loved watching West, he was so cute! What a wonderful experience he will remember forever, bless him. Funnily enough, I was watching the Karate Kid on tv the other and I wondered what Ralph Macchio was doing these days. He looks like he hasn't aged at all! So glad you are having a great time and best of luck with the competition! :-D

Valerie said...

He is so adorable. Congrats to him and to you!

wosnes said...
