Mirror, Mirror on the wall...

Mirror, Mirror on the wall. Who is the cutest baby of all?
Me, of course...and here are some new pictures to prove it. He! He! ;-)
Mommy was having fun playing with her camera.
Silly me!
Ms. Independent...eating pancakes.
I also tried banana pieces this week.

Crazy hair after bath time. :-)
We went to the Otto's to hang out.
 Here I am with Michele, learning how to bang my spoon.
Hanging out with the guys!
Mommy was having fun with the camera again.
Ohh! Swinging can be fun...
...Especially in this super cool car swing!
Beep! Beep!
Here I am swinging at the playground in our neighborhood. I enjoyed it a lot more this time than I did a couple of months ago at Jetton Park. Maybe it's the cool car swing. ;-)

Swimming with Friends

Today Mommy and I met my daycare friends at the pool. I was also very stylish in my matching bathing suit and hat. :-)
Just hanging out in the pool lounge chair
I love my baby float!
Here I am with Ms. Angie, Tristen, Xavier, and Katelyn
Xavier knows how to make me smile! :-)
Playing with Katelyn while Xavier lounges and watches.

Mommy loves my profile....especially with this cute hat on!
Who needs hands anyway??? :-)

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best Daddy in the world. Once again, I may be a little biased, but I think that he is. ;-)
Here we are on the day that I was born... ...and here we are today on our first Father's Day together.

Mommy dressed me in my onesie that says "Daddy's Girl". Everyone says I am a "Mama's Girl" but I love my Daddy just as much!!!
I sure do look A LOT like him!
To go along with my onesie today, Mommy put on my frilly skirt from Tara. I felt like I should try some ballet moves in it. :-)
Here are just some more pictures from my outfit today:

Here I am showing Daddy how I can pull myself up (onto my knees but I'm sure I'll be standing soon too!)
"Daddy's Girl". I love you very much!! Happy Happy Father's Day!!

And of course a very Happy Father's Day to all of the Daddy's out there!

Yoga, anyone?

Soooo it's Summer Break and I am having a great time staying home with Mommy and Daddy. I've been working on my crawling skills a lot. Yesterday Mommy and Daddy played "Monkey in the Middle" with me and I kept going back and forth between them trying to get my rattle. :-)

I still get a little confused from time to time on how to crawl. Do I use my knees or just stand up on my feet? Mommy thinks it looks like I am doing Yoga. Yoga, anyone? I sure do love being able to move around on my own!

Daddy captured this picture of me:

Mommy loves being home with me but also needs to get some stuff done around the house sometime (like cooking). Since I am now pretty mobile, she puts me in the pack and play. Hello?!? Can you get me out of here please? :-)

I actually do enjoy it though and will play contently for quite a while.....especially when all of my cool toys are in there.

Another picture??? Today Mommy and I went to a Goodbye Party for Leah. Yes, another good friend is moving away. Leah and Bryce are moving back home to Pennsylvania to be closer to family. We will miss them lots. They too came to visit me on the day that I was born.

Here are some pictures from the party tonight. Jill was the awesome hostess:

I was quite entertained by Kara's phone. Thank you!!!

Leah and I

Goodbye Courtney!

Mommy and Daddy's good friend Courtney is moving to AZ this summer. We are all very sad about this but we know that she will be happy out there with Chris. We'll have lots of Skype sessions and will definitely keep in touch. We will miss you lots Courtney!!
She was the first friend to come visit me in the hospital: Here we are at the Saucer yesterday:

Mommy, Courtney and me:

A picture in our backyard: Courtney and me:

Here are also two firsts from this weekend....
First time in a restaurant high chair:

Google Guitar & Crawling!!!

So the Google website has a guitar as it's logo right now and when you run the computer mouse over it, it sounds like you are strumming a guitar. Mommy was having fun with it and I was bouncing and "dancing" along to her music. She took a video of it but it's a little shaky because once she got the camera out I got "camera shy" so she was bouncing up and down trying to get me to do it again too.

I love the computer and try to get my hands on it any chance that I get. You can see in the video that I love to pound down on the keyboard. :-)

The computer is also great motivation to crawl. In the one video you can see me crawling across the living room to get to the computer. I'm not an expert yet, but I am moving right along. The house needs to be baby proofed soon!!! Mommy already got all of the gates are next! :-)

Latta Plantation & Other Fun

Here are some pictures of when my Great Uncle Klaus-Dieter was here to visit. He left this morning but we enjoyed our weekend with him. We went out to eat twice and went to Latta Plantation for a nice walk. Here are some pictures of this past weekend.
Kisses from Sidney? Yes, please!!: Oma and Opa sent this awesome beach basket filled with toys with Great Uncle Klaus-Dieter. I had fun exploring what was in it:

I can pull myself up onto my knees now (the crib mattress has been lowered). Here I am checking out the exersaucer from the other side. :-)

Great Uncle Klaus-Dieter brought me this super cool stuffed bunny. Check out the shirt it's wearing! He also made T-shirts for Mommy and Daddy with MY picture on it. Pictures of those to come soon!

Mmmm....let me see what those ears taste like!

Oma and Opa also sent along these bibs that are plastic and have a little pocket on the bottom to catch all of my mess when I eat.

Yup....let's try the bib too. Mommy thinks there is some major teething going on. There are two small white spots on the top gum again. I hope they poke through soon!!!

Here I am in my fancy dress and bow:

So pretty! Mommy and I at Latta Plantation:

Here we are again after I woke up from my nap:

I even put my feet in the water. I really liked digging my toes in the sand.

It was such a nice day yesterday that Mommy took my Ducky bathtub outside and let me splash around for a bit:
