I am now eating rice cereal!!! It is so yummy and exciting. I get one Tablespoon mixed with milk everyday at lunch. I have learned a few important things in a few short days.

#1 When the spoon comes, open your mouth. That way the food goes right in, although I do enjoy eating it off my bib too.
#2 Do not inhale when you're swallowing, even though you are so excited you want to gasp for joy.
#3 Don't kick mommy's arm when she has the spoon, it takes longer for the food to get to you.
#4 Try not to cry when mommy goes too slow, it makes it harder to swallow when crying, and then it takes longer for the food to get to you.
#5 Don't talk while eating. (I forget this one a lot) Even though you want to tell everyone how good it tastes, wait til later, because otherwise, it takes longer for the food to get to you.

I took a very long drive in the car to a fantastical place called Yosemite. At first I was a bit cranky in this new place because it was so hot, and I had just had my shots yesterday, but Daddy and Mommy soon figured out how to keep me happy in the air conditioning and rocking me to sleep in my stroller by doing a lap around each restaurant. Daddy was busy teaching people about computer stuff and how to use blogs like this one, but I was busy making lots of new friends at the pool, in the lobby, in the elevator... On the last day the whole family got up at my early feeding (that never happens) and we drove to into the Valley where we saw BIG rocks and even BIGGER waterfalls that looked like milk (Yum!)
I liked walking around in the Baby Bjorn with my sunglasses on. Everybody smiled at me and said how cute I was. I touched a tree.
I got wet with Daddy by the falls.

I had so much fun I fell asleep.

I like this place Daddy calls Nature. (PS. They have wind here too!)

James' Graduation

I took my first trip on a PLANE this weekend. Boy was it fun. The first plane ride I was a little grumpy because the announcements were so loud and I was trying to sleep! But the ride back was better 'cause I got to sit in my own seat and slept the whole way. I went to a cold place called San Francisco to watch Uncle James graduate. All the people made loud noises with their hands, that was crazy and I wasn't sure if I like it, but Daddy was doing it to so I figured it was okay. Later he told me it was called Clapping. I hung out at the afterparty and everybody wanted to meet me. They said I was sooo cute! We had a fun time walking around the city too, (they have Wind there too) and I slept in many different restaurants. The best part was giving Mommy her first mother's day card. When she read it, she got happy wet eyes. She loves me sooo much:)

Daddy Time

Today when Daddy came home from work, he helped Mommy give me a bath. And then he read me a story. I was a very good listener. I love my Daddy time!

I Can Laugh!

I learned a new trick this week called laughing. It's so much fun. Mommy says I laugh just like a big boy. I love to laugh most on the changing table when I get tickled. Sometimes I laugh so hard, I can't breathe, so I only laugh once or twice and then I save the rest of my laughs for another time. But it sure makes Mommy and Daddy happy.

My new friend Ben

Yesterday, I made a new friend Ben. He's 11 months old and he can control his hands. He took my binky out of my mouth, spit his own out and put in mine! I didn't mind sharing; he's pretty cool. :) He has the best smile and it made me smile and laugh every time he came close to touch my feet. I can't wait to play with him again!
