First Cut

For the first time in my life, I got... to fly my own plane. It was so much fun! It had a shiny wheel at the front and a big mirror so I could see myself. There was even a big television, but it wasn't playing the Food Network (it was something called CARTOONS) so I didn't pay much attention to it. Some guy in an orange shirt kept squirting me with water and throwing hair on me. I think I was going really fast in my plane, but it might have been mommy and daddy blowing WIND on me. I had a great time and got lots of kissed afterward.

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

I finally sat up all by myself. Not nuzzled in the corner of a couch, not leaning against a pillow, not propped up by my hands-all by myself. But then I went to get a closer look at mommy's computer and fell face first hitting my cheek on the computer and getting stuck in the crack on the couch.

Then at night, I rolled myself all the way over to my tummy, but didn't really want to stay that way and I couldn't roll back. Geez, so many problems being a big kid!

Mommy and Daddy Time

Mommy and Daddy had a celebration on Wednesday. They called it an anniversary, which means I got to play with Henry and Maggie all day and go to the pool. Then at night I got to play with Aunt Rhonda and Uncle Kevin. She read me more of those great pop-up books. I heard Mommy and Daddy say something about a helicopter, Catalina, and other words I didn't understand, but I think they had a good time too.

Yes, I loved the birthplace of my mother, not only because of the spectacular WIND and many pinata smashing opportunities (which I found out is called SPLASHING when you do it in water), but the people are so friendly and full of smiles. The pool was instant fun, but the beach is a little scarier and it took me a few days to realize I could also SPLASH there. Also there is more in and out at the beach. Daddy kept picking me up and putting me down again so the big splashes he called WAVES wouldn't get me. Also we had to keep going back to the water from our towel. First to get wet, then back in to wash off the rocks I was hiding in my toes, then back in to wash off the big spit up I did, then back in to wash my hand that wandered off the towel and got all messy, then back in for pictures- and we were only there for 15 min:) But I had a lot of fun and played so hard that I took my biggest naps ever. Mommy said that it was like last year when they were here. She took her biggest naps ever too 'cause her tummy didn't feel good ('cause I was inside her), but this year she said was better because she could have something called MAI TAIs.

Top 5 Ways to Make a Mess

1. Drool...a lot.
2. Drool, keep it in your mouth, then put your fingers in your mouth and blow.
3. Spit up... after eating prunes.
4. Spit up, keep it in your mouth, then put your fingers in your mouth and blow.
5. While eating, hit the spoon when its full of food so it goes up your nose. Bonus points if it lands on Mommy.

Bath Time

Daddy says I'm almost done with my baby tub (something about me getting everything & everyone wet with my splashes) so I thought I better blog about it before I forget how much fun its been. Daddy is in charge of giving me a bath and its lots of fun. He sings all sorts of silly songs and pours bubbles go all over me.

There is another baby that gets a bath at the same time and I like to watch him and say hi.

Then I get dried off.

Then Daddy gives me tummy time while he combs my hair, which he insists make me more handsome, but I think I look pretty good before.

Then he takes me to get kisses from Mommy (she really likes kissing clean babies).

Fourth of July!

I had a great 4th! Mommy & Daddy walked me to the grocery store where they got lots of colorful things & I got to suck on the baby bjorn the whole way. Then we hung out in the backyard while they "BBQed". I laughed at mommy as she tried a million times to light a match. [That surprised my parents:)] I got a bottle while they ate their salmon burgers and grilled peaches. Then we had a bath and I stayed up late. There were some beautiful lights in the sky and big booms at 9:00, only problem was that mommy and daddy put me to bed at 8:59. Oh well, maybe next year!
