digging for food...

my aunt lorna gave me kitchen things for christmas. i love to dig through the "food" and look at all the different shapes & colors. i also have an update on my cold & coughing... i have had a little cold (off & on) for about 3 weeks now. we went to the doctor yesterday & it has turned into my first ear infection -- in BOTH ears! but i am taking an antibiotic, so i should get better!

more of a merry Christmas...

here are some random shots from my Christmas time with daddy's family. we went to the opryland hotel for dinner & to see the lights. i am not really an auburn or alabama fan, but my cousin drew put his auburn hat on me. mommy thought it was cute, so i am sharing the pic. after dinner, we all went back to aunt lorna & uncle gene's house to share presents. i was very tired so i went to bed shortly after that excitement. one really neat gift was this set of table & chairs from grandmommie. it is still a bit large for me, but i tried to use it anyway.























the day after Christmas, i went to the nashville children's theatre for a show. i enjoyed the show for a few minutes, but i really enjoyed running around the lobby with aunt lorna. on our way there we stopped at mcdonald's because i like their cheeseburgers & apples.

Christmas update...

santa was very good to me & i've had so much fun visiting with family. i was very excited over this kitty cat that grammy & pappy gave me. she meows & moves her head & paws! i have also enjoyed this electronic nursery rhyme book that kyle & trudy gave me. here are a few pics & a vid from the beginning of my 2nd Christmas... more to follow later.

merry CHRISTmas, world!

lots of laughing...

here are a few pics from grammy & pappy's house last night. grammy got these mittens for me to wear on our ski trip next month. i just wanted to chew them off! then i had fun playing with uncle kyle's dog, molly. she is just my size! i also enjoyed these singing animals that pappy likes to bring out at Christmas time. when i press the penguin's hand, he sings songs to me. rudolph also sings songs while he rocks in his chair. i listened to their songs over & over, and i would even lie down in the floor to relax (for 10 seconds!) while they sang!

a trip to the bass pro shop...

mommy & i went to the bass shop with grammy, uncle kyle & aunt trudy. i know, it doesn't sound like a very likely place for a girly-girl to go, but they have all sorts of neat things to look at. i especially loved this mountain kitty-cat & also the aquarium full of HUGE fish! there were also Christmas displays, so we enjoyed just walking around & looking at everything.

lazy sunday...

today we all slept in & that was really nice because i've been waking up at night a few times this past week. my uncle kyle & aunt trudy are still in town so we went to eat chinese lunch with family & some other friends too. i even ate some of daddy's sweet & sour chicken. these are some pictures of other things i did today. we recently got a new carseat (it will mostly stay in grammy's car) but we had to put it in the camry this weekend. i am such a big girl sitting in my new seat -- it actually faces the front of the car!

fancy foods with daddy...

daddy has stayed home with me for the last two days while mommy has gone to work. we've had lots of fun reading books & doing errands. daddy feeds me different foods from what mommy feeds me. for lunch, i had a mozzarella grilled cheese sandwich & tomatoes. it was like "bruschetta for baby." for dinner, i had chick-fil-a chicken nuggets & a fruit cup. i'm still pretty picky about the vegetables, though... as in -- i just don't eat them!

playing catch-up...

HOORAY! daddy has fixed the main computer *the one that mommy understands how to use! so now i can make posts more regularly again. here are some pictures that i would have posted in the last couple of weeks, but i just didn't have time to move them to the computer that was working. now you can enjoy them all at once!

a Christmas card in the making...

ok, i admit, mommy & daddy are pretty late on sending out Christmas cards. but here's a sneak-peek of the pic you'll be receiving...

an encore reading...

here is another reading of one of my favorite books, "i love my mama." but this time, mommy reads the words to me & i flip the pages all by myself, because i know just when to do that. also, i like to be in control of the story; sometimes i like to read a certain part more than just one time.

technical difficulties...again...

sorry, but mommy & daddy are having computer troubles & mommy is not very fast at figuring out how to use the laptop computer (it is the one that works right now). so, i will have to give you a verbal update. mostly, we are just hanging out around our house or grammy & pappy's house. my uncle kyle & his wife trudy are here in town so we have had dinner with them a couple of times. last night, we went to grammy & pappy's church for dinner. mommy should have thought twice about that before we did it... traffic was terrible & i was in a very bad mood because she'd woken me up in the middle of my nap. nobody wants to see pictures of that anyway! so today we almost finished the Christmas shopping & did a little cooking. maybe daddy can help us with this computer very soon!

a car & a pony... a little girl's dreams...

lately, when i see this horsie or my old jumperoo horsie (it is still at grammy's house) i start jumping around. so today mommy put me on this horse to see what i would do. i did enjoy the horse, but i also wanted to push the buttons on my princess car. and when you get to the end of this video, don't worry... real cowgirls get right back on. that's what i did, & i did not even cry!

running around...

sometimes i like to just walk around the house, touching & looking at everything. i think this fox looks like a cat & i LOVE cats, so the fox is my friend too. listen closely, and you might hear me say "meow"! but then i like to be on the move too!

a wet day doesn't have to be boring...

today the weather was very messy & rainy. but mommy & daddy were both off from work & so we decided to get out of the house anyway. we ate lunch at moe's (although i just ate my mangoes, bread & milk) then we went to the mall & did some shopping. but the best part was getting to ride the carousel! all the zoo animals were gone & so today we got to ride the reindeer!

happy night & happy day...

i wasn't very happy last night when mommy was putting me in my carseat. so pappy brought conrad (the cat) to me so i could pet him & be happy. conrad is so sweet to me -- he lets me pet him & love him. many times, he will come to me & just lie on me & purr.

this picture is from just a few minutes ago. i have eaten my breakfast of bananas, mangoes, bread & milk & i am ready for the day!

a cold & yucky day...

today i stayed at home with daddy because mommy had to work. it was so cold today that we could not go to the park or play outside. blah!

just hangin' out around the house...

we didn't go anywhere today, and it's a good thing we didn't have any plans... my naps were short & i was cranky for lack of rest. but i had a lot of fun anyway. i enjoyed playing with the tree & ornaments & mommy says she is pleasantly surprised by my good behavior surrounding the Christmas tree. i also helped with vacuuming this morning. i love the vacuum! we also played outside for a little while this afternoon, but the fun was cut short because i tripped & fell on the concrete. i did not get scraped up, but it did frighten me, so we went inside. but overall, today has been a very fun day!

i'm being raised "right"...

daddy is teaching me to be a republican. ronald reagan, you're number one!

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

today mommy & daddy finished putting out the Christmas decorations. mommy was really afraid that i would try to eat all the decorations or pull things over on myself. daddy & i told her she shouldn't worry about this so much. i am interested in all the lights, but i really don't care about the ornaments or anything else. i am also enjoying the bows on these presents -- i like to tear them off & play with the stickiness.
