time for bed...

when i stay with grammy, mommy & i usually do not get home until 9:30 or 10 pm. i like to catch a little nap in the car & then i'm ready to play for another hour or so before i go to bed. tonight i practiced crawling, although i still have a long way to go. but the crawling & playing just made me so sleepy!

enjoying a new toy...

daddy got my first keyboard for me this week. i am learning to hit the keys & that does make music play, but my favorite part is probably the spinny-thing with the little beads in it! mommy is also using this toy to help me concentrate on sitting up. we have alot of fun with it!

how ya like them apples...

i've had my first feeding of applesauce! mommy mixed a little oatmeal with it too, and it was delicious! i probably would have eaten the whole jar, if she would have let me!

look what i can do...

mommy & daddy are working with me to help me learn to sit up. i can do it for a few seconds, but then i usually fall over. maybe it is because my little legs are so round. i hear that humpty dumpty had trouble sitting up too, and i am kind of round like him!

it was such a pretty day today that mommy & i went for a stroll. i went to sleep listening to the birds & the wind in the trees. then we came home & i rolled around & jumped. the picture of me in the crib was taken just before my bath.

i am 1/2 year old!

well, i was actually 1/2 old a few days ago, but today was my 6 month check-up. i weighed 18 pounds. all the nurses & the doctor commented on how happy & active i am. i was jumping so much that dr. buttler had to hand me over to his medical student so that he could talk to mommy & daddy! they gave me several vaccines & told me our next appointment will be at 9 months. also, mommy & daddy were relieved that the doctor checked my ears, nose & mouth -- he says i just have a little cold & it should get better in a few days.

weekend update...

over the past weekend, we went to see daddy's family at grandmommie's house. i showed off all my newest tricks like singing, trying to crawl and rolling over & over & over.

taggie! you're it...

recently, one of my favorite toys is a soft ball called "taggie." i enjoy practicing my crawling skills as i try to get to taggie. it is also very delicious to eat.

pics of the day...

since the weather was warmer, mommy & i went shopping & walking around outside for a little while. i am getting a little cold, so maybe that's why i have been sleeping so much these last few days. tonight was bath-night, so i included a picture of that too. if you can't see my teeth in the after-the-bath-photo, be sure to single click the pic to get a better view!

come join the party at my crib...

usually i wake up between 5:30 & 6:00. at first i cry a little bit, before i realize that i am waking up. but when i actually do wake up (either from a nap or my nighttime sleep), it's the happiest time of the day! i even stay happy about 15 or 20 minutes before i really want my breakfast. the video i am posting was taken during the first few minutes that i was awake. the pictures were taken just as i was dropping off to sleep, which is also a sweet time.

lazy day...

we thought about getting out today, but it was just too cold! so mommy & daddy & i just hung out here at the house all day. i did some jumping, rolling & swinging & they read stories to me. it was a great day!

sitting pretty...

here i am in my sunday dress after church. daddy had to work, but mommy & i went to church & i stayed in the nursery. the nursery ladies always say how sweet i am! then mommy & i went to lunch with grammy. (well, i napped the whole time!)

you'll have to excuse my whining in this video. it was right at my bedtime, so i was a little cranky. but my pink doggy made me happy even in the midst of my exhaustion. mommy thought that was funny, so she made me put up this video!
