Catching up - again

Yesterday was my "Mamas" birthday- she would have been 82 this year.
We still miss you every day!
Here is what I have been doing this past month or so-
I enjoy playing with my pots and pans and blocks-
I began crawling .... everywhere!
I have discovered that I now have teeth-
I started daycare (here is my first morning)
I would like to give a shout out to my Ernie doll!
I can now operate the remote to change channels and turn on the TV.
I am now walking with the assistance of a walker my Grandmarti gave me for Christmas- and starting trying it alone too.
But most of all- Miss Truvy, I promise that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair.

My FIRST Birthday!

My first birthday was a weekend BLAST!
My Grammy came from San Antonio on Friday night!
Cousin Tiffany, Little Maddox and Cousin Melany was also there
on Saturday when we had my party.
They gave me this wonderful card that sang happy birthday to me along with some fun toys

Dad and Daddy gave me alot of things but my favorite was this piano/xylophone!
Tosca gave me an Ernie doll - he knows I love to watch Sesame Street!

After we opened presents I showed Maddox how I like to climb the stairs.

Then everyone sang to me ......

Here is the ACTUAL VIDEO of everyone singing to me -

you can hear everyone if you turn it up LOUD :)

Daddy made a Strawberry cake and Strawberry icing -
because I like pink and LOVE strawberrys.
The Elmo was a PLUS- and daddy made all the decorations with Starburst Fruit chews!

I loved the cake- and all the attention!

Sunday the 2nd was my actual birthday and Grammy, Dad and Daddy and I went to lunch- THEN we went to the mall and rode my first Merry Go Round.

Catching up for June

Daddy started a new job in June (more about that later)
and things have been a little crazy... so here is our "catch-up" page.
At the end of our family visit in May (see 2 posts ago if you are lost)
we took some final pictures. Here is Daddy and I on our front steps.
Above is Grandmarti and I playing in the Sun.
After everyone left I noticed that Cousin Nola left her birthday cake here. Since she barely ate any, I thought I would "practice" for my upcoming FIRST birthday!
I wore a flower in my hair so I could be like her with her bows.

I had SO much fun ... and the cake was still good.

My new favorite pastime is swimming in my little pool on the patio.

I LOVE the water!

.... and I dont mind getting wet all over!

Here I am in my "daisy duke" outfit that Grammy bought me.
I still love to play in the sandbox.
We went to a pool party for my friend Janssens second birthday.
We did not get to take many pictures, but here I am eating her cake.
I enjoyed the fruit better .... I am not much for cakes now but I do like playing with them.
I got to wear my new swimsuit and I also wore a sun hat my Grandmarti sent.

Here Dad is teaching me to swim ..... and I loved it.

Learning to crawl is going well .... its really not that hard now that I got going.

Now I am working on standing up ... and that is going well too!

but for now - Happy 4th

Nolas First Birthday

We celebrated cousin Nolas first birthday this past weekend.
Here are some of the best pictures-

Some people think we look alike ....
but Nola ALWAYS wears a bow and I dont :)

My Grandmarti and Chase flew in from Atlanta

and Nola and her parents (Brad and Jacquita) drove down from Oklahoma.

Daddy made us matching princess skirts and we had cake!
