crunching & reading...

today i played at home & at the neighborhood park. one thing i especially enjoyed at the park today was the crunching of leaves -- i just walked in circles listening to the leaves crunch under my feet. the weather was beautiful and playing outside always helps me to nap & sleep well. i can't wait to do it again!

my first time to bleed...

well, i suppose it was bound to happen some time. all kids hurt themselves right? last night we were at grammy & pappy's house for thanksgiving. i was walking too fast & i tripped over my own feet. unfortunately, i fell right on the base of a table & i busted my bottom lip. i cried a lot, but i was a big girl & i ate some cold mangoes & that helped me to feel better. if you zoom in, you can see the cut on my lip in this picture taken today.

playing, shopping, bathing...

today was another busy day, but it was fun too. i started off by just playing, but i did discover how toilet paper rolls around & around! how exciting! after my nap, mommy & i went to get a second carseat -- this one is to put in grammy's car. so we braved "black friday" even though we weren't looking for any sales. my green doggy "scout" keeps me company when we ride in the car. i love to squeeze him! i took my second nap at grammy's house & then we went grocery shopping & came home to play some more. tonight was bath night, so now i smell all fresh. i am thankful for this relaxing day!

i found more blocks...

remember a couple of weeks ago how i said that i really enjoyed the blocks i found at the church at cousin trey's wedding? well, grammy remembered that she had the same kind of blocks -- they belonged to uncle curt & uncle kyle & mommy when they were little kids. they may be old, but they are still fun! i played with them for much of thanksgiving day, just taking them out of the box, putting them in the box & dumping them everywhere!

there's still beautiful weather left...

on wednesday, i spent a lot of time outside since the weather was so nice. at first we played in the back yard, but then we went to the park. there were many other children there & i really enjoyed watching them. i got to swing for a while & then i walked around & looked at things like i do. there were a few dogs too, but mommy didn't take any pictures because she didn't want to let me get in their faces too much. we came home & i took a great nap & played some more! aaahhh! this is the life! and i guess by the time you'll be reading this, i should say: "happy thanksgiving, world!"

a busy day...


today was a very busy day for me. i woke up & played inside this morning. after having my nap & some lunch, mommy & i walked around the driveway. then my friends ellie & kendall came over to play. then i went to grammy's house for dinner. whew! i am going straight to bed!

a little extra...

here are some photos i didn't get to post last week. there were a couple of days that my blog would not accept a new post. i didn't want to forget to share these pics!

happy days are here again...

it's amazing what a good night's rest will do for your disposition (and it also helps mommy & daddy!) i slept all the way through sunday night & even slept until 7:30 on monday morning. then i played with daddy all day because mommy had to work. on a side note... remember this sweater-dress that aunt judy made for me back in the summer? it's really cute as a winter top, isn't it?

let's celebrate thanksgiving...

today we went to aunt judy & uncle craig's house to celebrate thanksgiving. i was a little cranky from a lack of sleep the night before, so i never would really sit with anyone for many pictures. here are the pictures that mommy took. everyone is entitled to an "off" day, right? when we got home tonight, i ate dinner, played & had my bath. i went right to sleep & didn't even cry! i am SOOO tired!

playing outside...

today was a little chilly, but i played outside anyway. after i moved around for a while, i warmed up. i enjoyed just cruising around the driveway & looking at the leaves & nuts. you can see in the video that i am still unstable at walking on grass... it is just too crunchy and unpredictable. so i stay on the pavement for most of the time. i also visited the gargoyles that sit on our front step. i tried to talk to them, but they would not talk back. maybe we'll try again later.

sweet dreams...

fun-day sunday...

today i helped mommy & daddy with raking leaves. i really enjoyed running all over the driveway & even took a 3 hour nap because i was so tired! i also discovered this green ball that mommy used to use for exercises and it is great fun to play with!

a potpourri of pictures...

these are a few random shots of sweetness! i am still pulling out more new winter clothes & pjs as the weather continues to change. these red "dora the explorer" pjs are for big girls... they have buttons down the front & real pants! in the pic of me with my mouth open wide, i am clicking my tongue like mommy does sometimes. i am getting pretty good at it too. mommy thought the books all around me made for a funny pic -- it's like my library! and the little brown dots outfit came from my grandmommie... aren't i beautiful?
