playing carefully with plastic dishes...

i like to look through the containers that mommy keeps in this kitchen cabinet. there are so many colors & shapes! i enjoy pulling them & inspecting them... and of course i leave them all over the floor so that mommy & daddy can enjoy them too!

my love of ducks...

you know i LOVE duckies! of course i still love "ducky-one," as mommy & daddy have affectionately named him, but i can love many ducks at once. i like to watch "the duck song" on you-tube. there is also a "duck song 2" & a "duck song 3." in another pic, i am organizing the ducks that mommy made for to put on crowns for my birthday party. and see the duck InSIdE a duck?? aunt lorna & uncle gene gave me flowers in that duck-vase when i was a little baby, but i just recently found it again. the little duck is one that daddy got for me one day while we were shopping. unfortunately, this morning i let ducky-one go for a swim in the toilet, so he may be out of commission til he gets a bath. luckily, grammy gave me a new ducky today that looks a lot like ducky-one. (he is in the pic with me, ducky-two & the pink car.)

running around...

here is a little piece of my fun sunday this weekend. look how sweaty i am!! it was really hot & humid (i know -- surprise!) but the heat does not bother me; i always enjoy running around the yard. i followed this pattern many times -- going up the front steps, running across the yard, then coming down the driveway. occasionally i would become distracted & stop to look at pine straw & other things. but i "made the rounds" in this way SeVeRaL times!

a full & fun saturday...

on saturday, mommy & daddy ran some errands & of course i tagged along. as part of the day, we got to eat lunch at chick-fil-a. my favorite part of the lunch was the stickers that came in my kids meal. the stickers kept me occupied & happy for quite some time. when we got home, i got to play outside. in this picture, i am sitting on the steps that go to our backyard. my hands look kind of crazy in the pic because i am waving them around -- that is my way of asking mommy (or anyone!) to sing "the wheels on the bus go 'round & 'round..." i love the part when you make your hands go around each & i like to imitate it the best way i can! if you're thinking that would make a great video, well... mommy agrees & she has tried to capture this on video. but i usually get camera-shy & stop my hand-waving when the camera comes out. maybe eventually...

water time at the zoo...

earlier this week, we visited the birmingham zoo again. i am beginning to notice some of the larger animals & the animals that move fast enough to catch my attention. but my favorite thing to do is to play in the water!

dat, dat...

that is what i call a light: "dat." i like all lights, the ones in the car, or in the dryer, but this light is a special favorite of mine. i like to reach through the bannister to play with it!

a random sunday morning...

mommy had to work the last 3 days AND she works tomorrow too. so we decided to hang out here at the house rather than getting out to church. (she says she misses me & daddy!) so we are just playing in my room & reading books this morning.

a comment on comments...

sorry if i haven't responded to any comments lately. i'm not sure how the comments have been showing up on your computers, but here at home the comments are just a bunch of boxes & symbols. but daddy has fixed that for me, so now i can read any new comments that you post to the blog. hooray!

a playdate...

sorry my posts have not been very regular, but our internet has been up & down recently. mommy is not very computer saavy, so we are at the mercy of the internet. anyway... last week mommy & i met with mommy's friend susan & her two boys. we went to another indoor play place and had a great time!

i think this is funny...

when i stay at grammy & pappy's house, i like to play with these flexiblocks. they actually belonged to my uncle kyle when he was a little boy! the other night i made up a silly game by myself... just watch!

a busy wednesday...

today mommy & i had to run a lot of errands, like buying a baby shower gift, doing grocery shopping & developing pictures. i did pretty well in all of the stores and so we went to the park when we got home. i played in all the usual ways, running, looking at leaves & swinging. but for some reason, i really wanted the wood chips from the playground to be IN the swing. so i worked on that for quite some time.

i jump, you jump, we all jump...

on tuesday i went to a place called "i jump" where they have a bunch of inflatable jumpy houses. they also had a toddler room where i could play without being trampled by the bigger kids. it was SO much fun!!

i gotta do my chores...

i'm sure that by now, you have figured out that i love water. so one day i noticed a water sound in this room & i asked mommy to let me see what it was. it was the washing machine! at first i just watched her put the clothes into the washer, but now i like to help put things in (and sometimes i take things out too!) mommy & daddy say this is good because it's high time that i started "earning my keep" around this place. everyone has to start working sometime!

back it up...

i just realized that i did not post any pics from last weekend. we went to tuscumbia for daddy's high school reunion & i got to stay with grandmommie, aunt judy & uncle craig. i am sorry, but mommy didn't take very many pictures though... i guess everyone has an "off" day. so here is a shot from the picnic where i visited my friends savannah & megan (alan & candy's girls) & another picture from our ride home.

i'm back from texas...

sorry it's been a while since my last post, but i went to texas to visit with my uncle kyle, aunt trudy, & my new cousin -- baby madison rose!! she is beautiful! it took us 15 hours to drive there & i was a terrific traveller. unfortunately, when madison would cry, i would get upset & cry too. (actually, i would ThRoW myself in the floor & thrash around screaming.) the pic with the flowers was taken in our hotel room. i LOVED these flowers & carried them around with me in the room. thank goodness they were fake!









i was interested in madison, but i didn't really touch her a lot. this was a good thing, because i came down with a cold while we on the trip. but i am feeling better since we got home.











grammy & pappy brought this swing for madison & i thought it looked strangely familiar. (i used this swing when i was a little baby... that was SO long ago!) i experienced another first on this trip -- eating "on the run". when we were on the way home, it was getting late, but i needed to eat dinner. so we stopped at subway (for mommy, grammy & pappy) & they just got an extra plate for me. that was so i could eat my bananas & green beans in the car. mommy thought that was a little funny. we had a very good trip, but i am glad to be home!
