our trip to the zoo...

we got to go to the birmingham zoo with my friends ellie & kendall & their daddy, mr. bo. their mommy was on a mission trip. it was great fun. (even though i was still cranky & very much needed a nap!) we watched the animals & rode the train & merry-go-round &... well, see for yourself!

it wasn't my party & i cried 'cause i wanted to...

we had so many fun things planned for yesterday, but like i said before, i wasn't very happy. however, there were some good moments. we went to a birthday party for my friend cadence & she made me smile.

crank it up, baby...


i must admit, i have been a bit of a chore to be around today. i have had alot of gas, so mommy & daddy say i am excused for my behavior. i did not want to take a nap this morning & so the rest of my day was all thrown off. but that just means i will sleep well tonight!

a photo update...

here are a couple of photos from the last day or two... of course i still love to play piano with daddy. and lately i have started doing my jumping exercises with mommy & daddy while they do their exercise.










here i am playing with blocks at grammy & pappy's house. i usually fall asleep on the way home from grammy & pappy's house, but i usually let mommy put me right to bed.

an ordinary day...

here are some ordinary pictures from ordinary days. my latest development is that i like to stand up in the crib. i try to stand up in the floor too, but i don't really have the balance yet.

i get silly when i am sleepy...

when it was about time for my mid-day nap yesterday, i was tired, but i did not feel like going to bed! there are too many fun things to do. so i performed a silly song & dance to convince mommy that she did not need to put me in the crib!

and when it was time for bed last night, i tried again to tell mommy that i did not need sleep. i was unsuccessful, but mommy & daddy had a good laugh at me.

a love for learning...

like i've said before, i love to read! this "flip-flap" book is still my current favorite. i chase it all over my room, no matter where it might be. the words are on brightly colored pages so i can see them easily. other books that i enjoy are goodnight moon, two to cuddle, & books from the sweet pickles series. video

i'm always learning...

here are a few things i have been working on recently. i can hold my own bottle, but i just don't understand why milk doesn't flow up...so mommy helps me tilt the bottle so milk comes out. i also enjoy my story books. i like the pictures but i really like to look at the words. another thing that my family has noticed is that i seem to favor my left hand. maybe i am a lefty.

i can do it...

i am constantly telling mommy that i CAN do things...she tells me "no" alot & picks me up & moves me to other places. i just laugh at her when she does this. i am getting close to standing up & i have decided that i can use a spoon all by myself. of course, mommy still tells me that i need help.
video

this is how i play...

here are some videos of me just hanging out & playing. that's what i do...

enjoying simple things...

i have a lot of fun toys to learn & play with. one thing i especially like is the simple green & yellow merry-go-round & the school house for my "little people." i also enjoy my jingle ball & these rainbow cups that stack & roll.

peek-a-boo...i see you...

i like to play peek-a-boo & it makes me laugh a lot. sometimes i use the blanket to cover my face & other times mommy will peek around a corner or something. this video is a little shaky because she was taking it while she peeked over the side of the crib. but you can definitely hear me laughing, at least when i catch my breath well enough to laugh out loud! video
