|Yay for me...I'm 13 months!|
As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm becoming a kitchen aficionado. In fact, I'm so comfortable in the kitchen, I've spent several days this week trying to help Mommy remodel her cabinet space...
|Step 1: Remove all items from cabinet; commence banging and yelling at items.|
|Step 2: Reach deep within cabinets; it's handy to use one's legs to propel one deep into the depths of the cabinet.|
|Step 3: Sometimes you have to really get into the cabinet and be one with it to do remodeling...|
|Step 4: Show Mommy when it's empty. Look how helpful I can be!|
In addition to cabinet remodeling, I was extremely helpful with getting the furniture into BSG's room. Mommy and Daddy had to buy all new furniture for BSG, since I'm still using mine, and don't intend to give it up anytime soon. The most fun part of this "remodel" was the boxes in which the furniture came. We're talking HUGE boxes. I wanted to build a big fort, but instead, I just played inside with my Mommy (I told you they were big boxes...)!
|THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!|

That afternoon when we got home, I was so ready to go-go-go that I did something Mommy NEVER thought would happen this early...I climbed the WHOLE staircase - all 20 stairs! It took me about 3 minutes, but I went all the way from the bottom to the top and then all over upstairs (looking for BSG's big box, which was nowhere to be found :( ). I then went back to the stairs to see if I could go back down, but it looked pretty far, so I asked Mommy to carry me. (She thought that was very wise!) Unfortunately, she was so unprepared for the event, there was no video or pictures taken. We'll try to capture that in the next few weeks!
We had lots of visitors this week too. Auntie Rachel came over to babysit me so Mommy and Daddy could go out to dinner for their birthdays at a "big people" restaurant. And then the next day, Mommy's second cousin once-removed, Bron, and his wife, Hannah, came to visit for dinner (they live in New York!). Unfortunately, I was in the process of coming down with a cold, so I wasn't as entertaining as I sometimes am, but they said they'd forgive me. Also, Mommy AGAIN forgot to get pictures, so we'll have to have everyone come back!
And now for the big news...this week ended with us in a different state! We flew overnight to New York. I haven't been here since I was 3 months old! Mommy's cousin, Saralyn, is getting married to the nicest guy and so we came to see her and lots of other family and friends. I really enjoyed the flight...as you can see...
...but after an overnight flight, I was VERY happy to get off the plane!
