Look who's walkin' (almost)

Today after work, Mama decided to try to capture some of my walking on video. I'm getting pretty good at it. My longest stretch has been across the living room and yesterday I even stopped, changed direction, and didn't fall! The first two videos are very short because I lost my balance quickly. Mama especially loves the second one when I fall and make the sound effect! Hee Hee! Happy viewing!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thankgiving to all of my family and friends!! I am thankful for each and everyone of you.
Mama, Dada, and I enjoyed a nice relaxing day. Here are some pictures:
Mmm! Is all of this food for me?

I love sweet potatoes!

I mean...I REALLY LOVE sweet potatoes! :)
Can you see them in my hair?

I got to skype with Mallory and Aunt Mica.

Oh Mama! What are you doing to me???

I love kisses from Mama!

Dada and me! Cheese!!!

Same picture in black and white.

I had to take a bath to get those
sweet potatoes out of my hair. :)

Duck, Duck...pond

Today Mama, Dada, and I headed up to Statesville to visit our friends the Mehall's. While the Dada and Andy played pool and hung out, the girls went to the park. We enjoyed playing on the slide and swings (well, I only liked the swings when I got to swing with Mama) and feeding the ducks. Of course, Mama couldn't pass up taking lots of pictures of me. :)
Ready to go in the Mehall's van. I was too busy playing
with the phone to look at the camera. :)

Aubrey, Mama, and me

Aubrey, Lindsey and me.

Enjoying the view of the pond

There was even a fountain!


Do you see the ducks in the background?
What a fun day!

Just Because...

Just because I'm cute.....
Playing in the box. Please don't mind the crazy hair.
My hair was in pigtails all day. :)

Caught in the act! I guess my car seat isn't a jungle gym???

What are these things?

No more hat please.

Weee!!! Mommy was throwing leaves at me. :)

Don't you just want to smooch those cheeks???

Having fun exploring the leaves.

Hanging out with Daddy.

Hi Mallory...

....let me get down from my chair...

...now I can see you!!! :)

Pappy Visits

Pappy came to visit because he is running a half marathon in Charlotte tomorrow. Last night we went to the Flying Saucer for dinner and this morning we went to the Shuffletown Diner for breakfast. Mama and Dada have been living here for years and have not tried this diner...they were missing out! We also enjoyed some playtime together. Here are some pictures of Pappy and me:

Pappy gave me some of his grits. YUM! YUM!

Mama decided to take pictures on the ride home from breakfast.

Full and happy!

Hi Mama!

It was a short but fun visit. Thanks for coming Pappy! See you soon. I love you!

Determination!

Mama decided to post two videos of me today....however, the second one is not working for some reason. :-( Here is one of me playing with my shape snail. I have figured out how to put the shapes inside of the snail, but it sometimes takes me a while. I do have determination though! I'll sit for about 20 minutes and play with the snail. Here's just a little peek of me playing:
Hopefully she can download the other video soon.
Happy viewing!

Weekend Fun!

Weekends are the BEST because I get to spend them with Mommy and Daddy...I should really start referring to them as "Mama" and "Dada" because that's what I call them. :-) Here are some fun pictures from this weekend...
Making a silly face at Dada. :)

Mama and Me!

This is my new favorite hang out spot...
right between the end table and the couch.

Practicing that thing called walking...

I love bath time!

Let me try this turtle!

Mommy uses one of my old bottles to rinse
my hair....I decided to try and drink the bath
water with it instead. Hee! Hee!
Ribbit! Ribbit! Snuggling in my frog towel.
Oh....I forgot to add one of my "likes" in my last post....I like to give kisses now! Mama or Dada will say "Can I have a kiss?" and I will give them a big open mouthed smooch right on the cheek :-)

13 months old!

Today I am 13 months old! Here's a little update about myself...
Current likes: Music, my toys from my birthday...especially my kitchen from Grammy and Pappy and my shape snail from Oma and Opa. I of course enjoy...food!, crawling around quickly (I am working on that whole walking thing), Sidney and Crosby. Sidney actually lets me near her sometimes. I think she figured out that I drop a lot of food. :) Oh...and splashing around in the bath tub. Daddy also lets me watch Baby Einsteins in the morning after Mommy leaves for work.
Current dislikes: Sleeping through the night. I like to get up at least once a night...normally around 3:00 a.m. I was "winning" the sleep battle for a while again and Mommy would come and get me because my crib hadn't been lowered to the lowest setting and she didn't want me to fall out. She would take me to the guest bed and snuggle....aahhh....so nice! Well.....Daddy lowered the crib ant it's back to the old "cry it out" method. Boo! :(
In other news: I have my first molar (top left) and the other teeth are coming through soon. Maybe that's why I get cranky in the middle of the night??? I did take 5 steps on my own but I'm still very wobbly. I'm working on it and do enjoy walking along furniture.
Here are some pictures from the past couple of days and from today:
My face says it all! That's how I felt about touching the
inside of a pumpkin. :-)

Checking myself out in my Halloween book.

Hello Piglet!
FYI: This costume is 18 to 24 months...remember this blog is
"13 months old!" It was still big on me. :-)

Mommy decorated this Haunted House.
Thanks Grammy for the kit...I'll help when I am older.

The Haunted House

This was at dinner today.
Check out my concentration!

This was right before I tried to eat the crayon. Hee! Hee!
Don't worry...they were non-toxic.
We'll end the blog with some videos.
#1 Me babbling after bath time the other night
#2 Me playing with my kitchen set. I LOVE the ABC song and I like to bounce to it. The background noise is Daddy putting away the dishes. Sorry. :-)
