a play date...

mommy & i went to see my friends ellie & kendall for lunch today. we played inside for a little while, but the day was so beautiful, we just had to get out & enjoy it! i love exploring a new place & looking at the leaves & rocks.














mommy made several attempts to take this picture. it took a lot of patience for all 3 of us to look at the camera at the same time!

a day with daddy...

here is a little of what i did with daddy today. we usually listen to music on the computer & i like these blue lines that he plays with the music. don't worry -- he doesn't let me get up on the desk all by myself! these blue lines dance up & down on the screen to the beat of the music. we also went for a great walk today. we visited the lakes & parks in our neighborhood. i got to see the geese swimming around. by the time mommy got home from work, i was worn out. after dinner, i went straight to bed!

if the dress fits, then wear it...


look how i've grown!! there aren't many outfits that i have been able to wear for such a long time! this is the dress that grammy made for me last Easter & it still fits! i wore it to church today & everyone said how beautiful i was. the dress was large for me in april 2009, but not terribly so. it fit perfectly in september 2009 when i had pictures made. and i am amazed that i can stil fit in it now!

just hangin' out...

that's all we did today... just hang out. and it's a good thing, too, because my naps were really wierd. i cried a lot during my morning nap & i did not take an afternoon nap. in fact, during my afternoon "naptime" i just RAN around my crib & laughed for about 45 minutes til mommy came to get me out! so here are some pics from our lazy day; actually the bike helmet one is from yesterday afternoon. mommy tried the pigtails on me this morning, but i don't really care to keep my hair like that! we also tried on my Easter dress *got a great deal at kohl's -- just $9! and tonight was bath night. i got some new toys for the bath... a curious george bath book & a set of stacking cups. this is good because i have been getting very figety in the bathtub & i splash a lot. but these new toys do a good job of occupying me while mommy cleans me up!

i couldn't wait to share...

our fun day is not over yet, but i just could not wait to share these with you!


this morning, daddy & mommy had an appointment. mommy & i played in the office as long as we could (almost an hour!!) but we finally went outside to stroll around the parking lot. we found these pines trees growing out of the side of a steep hill. the base of a tree was a perfect seat for me!














when we got home from the appointment, i ate more of my new fave -- dried green beans! then mommy & i went to the park to play. i am going to take a REALLY good afternoon nap!

green beans & laughter...

i am posting a silly video of me laughing at mommy saying "quatro" again. i know, it's about the fakest laugh you'll ever hear! i guess i just like to hear myself.

AnD LoOk! are those green beans on my tray?? yes, it is! i tried these dried green beans a while back & did not care for them. there are other dried veggies too, but they are very crispy & mommy & daddy were afraid i might choke on them. well, i re-tried them all at dinner tonight. i seemed to do better with the crunchiness of the veggies (squash & carrots) and the green beans were delicious! i was very upset when we ran out of green beans. go figure...

random cuteness...

these pics are from a few days over the past week -- just regular stuff. but good news: we went to church this morning & i went to my class that i always go to. when we arrived, i got scared, because i knew mommy was going to leave me. but then i got in the class & started playing & i was just fine! i'm still not really into playing with the other children -- i am pretty independent. but at least they didn't have to call my parents. when daddy came to get me, i wasn't even crying! i am a big girl! :)

it was like six flags for babies...

today was so much fun!! of course i did the usual -- breakfast, playtime, & naptime. but after lunch i went outside to play and daddy was washing the car. i was interested in the water hose & got a little wet... then things got a little crazy. just watch!

so we came inside to dry off & change clothes. then we went on a bike ride around the neighborhood. we played at the park & i got to swing for a long time. the weather was sooo beautiful! wow! and i was ReaLLy tired when we got home!

new words...

as i mentioned in my last post, "ducky" is my first real word. however, i have begun recognizing other words that mommy & daddy say. yesterday, we were reading a book about a ball, and i went to get my green ball. in fact, i like to bring that book to mommy & turn to the pages with balls, just so i can show her i know what a real ball is! today mommy asked me to get my book about the monkeys, and i went straight to the jumping monkeys book! and i even jump around while we read it. on a different note, i do have another ear infection (or maybe the other one never went away). we went to the doctor yesterday & she gave me omnicef. mommy puts it in my sippy cup & i love it!

"duc-KEY"...

it took me a while to decide, but i have finally chosen a favorite item to tote around. unfortunately, mommy & daddy cannot remember who gave us this ducky, but we've had it since before i was born. he actually quacks when you press his belly, but i like him because he is so squishy & loveable. i tried to eat the white fur on his head, & i also chew at his eyes. mommy has already had to bathe him & perform surgery to repair an eye. but ducky only has a small scar. "ducky" is even my first real word -- i say "duc-KEY" all the time, about everything. But if you ask me to go find ducky, i know exactly what you are talking about, and i will find him. we are great friends!

playing outside...





here are some pics from playtime outside on tuesday. we played outside again today, but mommy didn't take the camera... she figured i needed a shutterbug break. today we went to the park to swing & run, but some drizzle cut our trip short. it was a little chilly anyway. but i had fun!

fashionista...

mommy got this strawberry shortcake material on clearance at hobby lobby. she still needs to make the britches & put in buttonholes, but the dress is pretty cute so far!
