i'm all smiles...

here are some "smiley" pictures from the last couple of days. today, daddy & mommy took me out to do some errands. while in helena, mommy & i went for a stroll. it was a chilly day, but i really enjoy being outside.
here are a few of the things i've done over the last day or so. i am really interested in books...both for chewing & just for looking at them. mommy reads a sweet pickles book to me almost every day.

peachy keen...

today i ate peaches for the first time. they were delicious! i also had another "first" today... i sat in the "big-kid" part of the grocery buggy when mommy & i went to the store! i stayed in the seat & behaved perfectly!

but i don't want to take a nap...

now that i can crawl & move around more, i am really making my opinions & desires known. when mommy puts me down for my nap, i would rather watch my aquarium than go to sleep. she turns it off during my nap & i don't understand why. (but she turns it on again so i can watch it when i wake up from my nap!)

my latest photo shoot...

here are the results of my latest photo shoot! mommy tried to let me wear my headband, but i just could not keep it on that day. i was very wiggly (no surprise!) & so mommy was glad that daddy came along to help us too!

i love to sit and play...

i am sitting up nice & tall now. i have begun to enjoy my "penguin pal" a little more since i can look her in the face. we have fun play dates together.

i'm a little "ham" for the camera...

i was minding my own business, just crawling & squealing...then i noticed mommy with a video camera so i had to go investigate.

oh happy day...

i am really developing a sweet personality. if i am awake, i am probably laughing or smiling.

it's been another busy weekend...

my friends savannah & megan came to visit me this weekend (and mr. alan & mrs. candy came to see daddy & mommy). we had alot of fun playing with each other & i was very interested in everything that my "big friends" did.

just hangin' out & playing...

here are a couple of things that i have done over the last few days. mommy & i went for a stroll one day. we went down to the lake & looked at geese, but i didn't really care about them. i've also been busy rolling around & playing & learning, like always.

it's official! i am on the move...

yesterday i did my first crawling... well, it was really more of a drag, but you can see for yourself. i decided i wanted my books, and i was on a mission! it seems that i perform better if i am on the plain carpet, i guess because all the pretty pictures on my blanket distract me from my goal.


mommy thought this was funny... i guess i wore myself out with the crawling. once she put in my swing, i was asleep in about 2 minutes!

all good things must come to an end...

we had fun on our trip, but it was good to come home & be on my regular schedule & sleep in my real bed again. here are a few other pictures from our trip that i thought you would enjoy!

the sound of music...

while in north carolina, we visited a friend of aunt mary ann & uncle rodney. he had all these neat record players (victrolas & music boxes). i enjoyed learning about & listening to some history.

it's time to play...

here is a video of my aunt debbie playing with me & my pink lamb. aunt debbie gave me this little lamb that has made me laugh SO very much!

this is just a video of me playing quietly by myself.

more time with family...

here are some more pictures from our trip.

enjoying the great outdoors...

while we were in virginia, the weather got pretty warm. i loved spending time outside. i got to watch gdaddy, uncle don, & daddy put up a flag. i also played on gg's goose. in one of these pictures, i was biting gg's finger -- i think i may have hurt her a little.

here are a couple of pictures that mommy took while we were in virginia. my teeth are still bothering me, and lately i like to move my tongue around in funny ways. maybe it helps my gums to feel a little better.

it's easy as 1,2,3...

grammy started playing this 1-2-3 game with me. she counts to "3" & puts me up high in the air. while we were in virginia, grammy & aunt debbie noticed that after they counted to "2," that i would get excited. it was because i knew that "3" and a trip up in the air would follow! mommy says i am a genius because i know how to count. i just think it is fun!

my busy week...

there are so many great things i want to share with you about my vacation. i'll try to make a post or two every day so we can catch up. these pictures are of my family in virginia & my family in north carolina. i do have an announcement to make: i am truly sleeping through the night now! on our first night in virginia, we skipped my late night bottle & i did just fine! so now i usually eat just 4 times a day, & i have solid foods at each meal.


we're finally home & settled in after our vacation to north carolina & virginia. we visited pappy's family in north carolina & we visited grammy's family in virginia. i spent a lot of time riding in the car, but i was an excellent traveller! mostly, i just slept & played. here is an example of my good behavior in the car...

here is what i did today...

mommy & i spent today running errands & doing chores. i was excited to have my first taste of prunes as a solid food! (i've had prune juice, but now i don't like it as much as i used to.)

it's a winter wonderland...

yesterday morning i got to see my first snow -- and there sure was a lot of it! mostly, the snow just confused me because it kept getting in my face. we only stayed outside for a few minutes.
