my bumbo seat...


i have been holding my head up pretty well for a while now. so it seemed like it was time to work on sitting up. i have been working on this a few times a day using my bumbo chair. i like it because even when i get tired, i still cannot fall over!

halloween is almost here...











today mommy took me to the pumpkin patch. we picked out lots of pumpkins & gourds to use for halloween & thanksgiving. but by the end of our visit, i had fallen fast asleep.


when mommy & daddy both have to work, my grammy takes care of me. sometimes i go to her house, and sometimes she comes to my house. one day, she & pappy came to my house & took these "punkin suit" pictures!
in this picture, mommy & grammy say i look like i am acting like a little halloween monster! RRRR!

my visit to the big peach...

this weekend i had fun meeting some of mommy and daddy's friends & their daughters. on thursday night, daddy's cousin, mr. mark & his daughter savannah came to birmingham from north alabama.










on friday morning, we loaded up to go to atlanta where mr. alan, mrs. candy, savannah & megan live.
everyone seemed to enjoy helping to take care of me, & mommy really appreciated that. even though we all had alot of fun & i was well behaved, it is good to be home & back on my regular schedule.

story time...


here i am with mommy reading about frog and toad. her funny voices make it very interesting. mommy and daddy especially wanted to share these stories with me because they remember reading them when they were children.

family time...

my great-grandma brandt, uncle rodney, and aunt mary ann came in town from north carolina.










we had a fun time. we all went to church with grammy and pappy and everyone enjoyed visiting together!

in this picture, great-grandma brandt is holding me while i enjoy listening to pappy play the harmonica!

slideshow video...

here's a slideshow video of random snapshots of me and family and friends. it's set to some of my favorite songs. mommy and daddy think that i like music from the 70's and 80's because the silly sounds and disco type rhythms get my attention. i'm not sure why, but i seem to enjoy andy gibb these days.

here are some mommy and daddy baby pics...



that might help reveal who i look more like. my aunt judy recently posted some family baby pics on her blog that everyone should check out. there's a link up on the left. i think my eyes look like daddy, but i definately have mommy's smile.

today i went to the doctor...

and i got 3 shots. he said i'm doing good. i'm a little constipated, but he says it's normal because i don't know how to use those muscles yet. mommy and daddy may start giving me some juice if they think i need it. here i am this afternoon...

my room...


this week daddy painted his old toy box to put in my room. he also finished painting some leaves on the ceiling. i should also mention that mommy and daddy worked hard painting my room to look like a jungle...








my weekend...


this weekend was a busy one for me! on saturday i went to the fiddler's convention with mommy, grammy, and pappy. i listened to mommy play fiddle and pappy harmonica in various groups (jam sessions). i was well behaved all day. on sunday morning daddy sat in on piano at his friend stokes' church, and it was the first time for me to stay in a nursery. i was very well behaved there also. here are some pics from the week...

i'm really smiling...

people say that i have been smiling all along, but now i am really starting to smile as a reaction to things. i will turn 8 weeks old tomorrow. in this picture, i was smiling at mommy's silly songs. i also enjoyed looking at the animals that hang on my swing. i am embarrassed of how dirty my outfit looks, but i am still having some trouble with spit-up. i'm just a baby!
