Finally in Wilmington!

August 10th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized


We have a few pictures left from our last days in Colorado.

We had our last visit at the park here.

After the park we had our last visit to our favorite Starbucks.

I ate some raspberry swirl pound cake.  Yum!

Now that we are in Wilmington, there are lots of things we need to figure out.

So far, I’ve figured out that I really love to play in the water. 

Mama filled my old infant bathtub with water and I went to town!

It is very hot outside so this is a good way for me to cool off!

Mama had to get a picture of my little curls.

I got this new tent to play in for when it’s too hot or Mama is too lazy to play with me outside.

Here you can see my molar that just came in!

Mama is a little behind the times.  She read that Justin Bieber had more views on youtube than Lady GaGa so she went to youtube to see who the heck this kid was.  She clicked on a video and I went crazy!  I have Bieber Fever!

We did get a chance to get into the downtown area and walk around.  It was beautiful!

I can’t wait to start getting out more and seeing more of my new town.


My Day

July 18th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

I woke up ready to play today.  Mama woke up on the wrong side of the bed and was extra tired this morning.

But then I woke an hour early from my nap like this:

Daddy looked in my mouth while I was crying and saw a crazy bump where a molar was coming through.  No wonder I’m so grouchy!  

Mama and Daddy set me up on my couch and I spent some quality time with my toe.  I felt much better after that so I headed to the kitchen to help Mama pack. 

That is where I found this stale marshmallow.

After I ate my marshmallow, I wandered over to help Daddy pack up his work area.  Then we all headed out to the park.

This is my first visit to the park since I started walking everywhere.  See ya later!

Seriously guys.  I’m outta here.  There are too many things to see!

Hey, I’ve been over here before!  Now I can run over there all by myself!

I like to play in the sand.  Hey, Where’s Mama going?

I can finally play in the playground!

We went down the slide a few times.  Is Mama having more fun than me?

Whoa, what are these little guys?

They seem to have no problem with us getting close.

Finally it was time to go get dinner.  I’m going to bed a little early tonight since I woke up so early from my nap.

Here I am at Panera.

When we got home it was straight to the bath.

Then a story before I get into my pajamas.

Then finally before bed story and snuggle with Daddy.

Thanks for visiting!


Play Time at Mickey D’s

July 17th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

We are trying to get the apartment all packed up so we can head to North Carolina.  We went out to get some boxes then stopped at McDonald’s on the way home.  Not much I can eat there but Mama brought me a banana and then set me down for some fun in playland.

Some nice people were waving at me and got me to smile.  The picture came out blurry but Mama likes it anyway!

I liked to climb on the french fries.  I couldn’t climb the cheeseburger.  Maybe I’ll conquer that one next time.


Playing at Home

July 13th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

Hello to all 3 people that actually see this!  I have a ton of pictures to share with you. 

Here I am watching one of cousin Emi’s videos!  I love to watch cousin Emi in action, especially when she is playing with Princess!

Since I don’t have a pet of my own, I spent a lot of time with my toy cat.  It walks and meows just like a real one!

I like to eat my beans with a spoon.  Or try to anyway.

We’ve been having some great weather here, and Daddy caught this rainbow on camera.  It was a strange one!

This is where I like to stand and watch the rain come down.

Caught red handed in Mama’s purse!

I got quiet while Mama was doing the dishes.  She was curious so she peeked over the counter. 

I was just taking a little rest!  I’m wearing my awesome SoCo Creamery shirt that Aunt Heather gave me.  They have the best ice cream ever!  Mama likes the coffee flavor but Daddy says the vanilla is the best he has ever tasted.  Check it out if you’re ever in Stockbridge.

Gotta have a couple of these crazy faces in here.

I happen to love the messiest place in the house.  Mama is packing up boxes in the closet and I like to empty them out.  You wanna watch Garden State with me? 

Mama turned my couch into a bed and let me watch Elmo.  It was a lazy Saturday.

I got in a lot of play time with Daddy this weekend.  He finally got some well deserved time off from work! 

I like to carry around my giant “ba”.  Why does Mama find this so funny?

Here is my stupid new toy Mama randomly bought for me.  It’s going straight to the Goodwill before we move!

I’m pretty sure almost every photo has something that used to be my cousin Emi’s.  A lot of my favorite toys have come from Aaron, Cindy, and Emi.

And that’s it!  We didn’t have an exciting week but it sure was fun anyway.

Thanks for checking in!

These first few pictures were supposed to make it into the last post.

This is the crazy face I make when I get the idea to walk.  It cracks Mama up.

The rest of these pictures are from today.  Daddy had me all dressed up in my tutu when Mama got home from her movie.  I woke up 1 1/2 hours early from my nap and was ready to play.

 Please don’t mind the cord to the vacuum cleaner.  Mama went kinda crazy cleaning this morning and then got too lazy to put it away.

I growled a little, because that’s what I like to do.

Daddy gave me a big snuggle when I walked over to him.  I’m walking more and more every day!

All the walking makes me thirsty.


Thursday With a Wardrobe Change

July 3rd, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

I got my xylophone on.  That was fun.

I got my smirk on.

I got my walk on.

I got my yoga on.

I got my cry on.

And after my nap…

I tried my hat on.

I got my lounge on.

Got my confusion on.

Got my peekin’ on.

 and before I got my dinner on, I got my pots and pans on.


Wonderful Sunday

June 28th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

After a very hectic night that involved watching Elmo at 10:00 PM, I woke up in a great mood.  I was feeling much better!  We started off the day with cinnamon rolls, well, I didn’t want any but Mama and Daddy enjoyed theirs.  Then well all went out running together.  Daddy reached his goal of a 9 minute mile and Mama and I went 3 miles in the blazing sun.  After my nap we all took a walk to the park.

It was beautiful today!

Hey, what is that down there?

Daddy took me down to see the water.  I wanted to get in!

We found some shade to sit in.  I enjoyed crawling around in the grass and picking it.

You want some?

Then I took Mama on a little walk.  Yes, I do know how to walk by myself.  I would rather hold onto Mama’s hand though.  I can’t be bothered to concentrate on balancing this huge head of mine when there is so much to look at!

Daddy took me to the sand box.  I didn’t eat any of it.

Hey, what’s that over there under the bridge?

Yes, it is a deer.  I guess she was trying to stay cool.  She didn’t scare easy either! 

The picture above was behind us.

This is what it looked like in front of us.  The clouds are rolling in.  Get ready for some rain!

Is it time to go back outside yet?

We ended the day with dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings with Daddy’s friend Andy.  It was a fun day!


Fun After Dinner

June 26th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

After dinner it was time to play!  We are trying out a later bedtime. 

I’m sticking out my tongue a lot today.  Mama thinks it’s pretty funny. 

I did a lot of screeching and clapping.

I reminded Mama one of the many reasons we cannot have a cat.

I played with Daddy and my pal Violet (a Christmas gift from Aunt Cindy, Uncle Aaron, and cousin Emi).  I was getting really tired and it was finally time to take my bath and go to bed.  Good Night!


Something To Do

June 25th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

I finally found something to entertain myself while Mama cleans the kitchen.

Now if Mama can just put down the camera, she might get something done!

We went for a walk and this is what Mama saw after she rolled me through the door.  I just love my toes.

I like to peer out the window and watch all the people bike and jog by.  I will miss this awesome trail.  Hope we can find another in Wilmington!


Feeling Better

June 24th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

I was sick yesterday but I’m feeling a lot better today.  I still don’t have much of an appetite but at least I’ve stopped the crying.

I’ve started to hug all my favorite toys.

I even gave Baby here a smooch.

Hello Violet!  You wanna snuggle?

I finally took a bite of a cracker.  Mama had no idea what I would eat.

Daddy is very talented.  He can work and hold me at the same time.  Welcome to easy street Mama!
