It's been a long time since we've posted. Way too long! Lots and lots of things have happened in the 6 weeks we've been absent and silent. Here are some of the highlights:
AVERY! My new cousin, Avery, was born at the beginning of May to my Mommy's cousin Kristin. We think she's pretty spectacular (well, both Avery and Kristin) :)
SUNSHINE! We've actually had some nice weather here in Seattle...I even got to go outside and play in my pool with Gracie!
|(I didn't wait for Mom to get a bathing suit on me, so neither did Gracie :))|
|On the playground with my sisters...|
|Coloring in the sun with Sissy - it doesn't get better than this!|
|Me and my friend Jake|
|My friend Madison and me|
|Being welcomed by Lianna...|
|I've got the hang of this now...going in for a hug with Avery.|
|Saaj loves me...on the playground...|
|Saaj and me playing on the playground. We LOVE to play together.|
|Gracie is out for a buggy ride adn I get to see her!!!|
|And we get to play on the concourse...|
|Yeah - BIG fan of this place!|
I AM TWO YEARS OLD!!!
We had a low-key birthday (because Mom was still trying to get ready for state Special Olympics), but we had a lot of fun.
I got to go to the zoo with my Olmsted cousins and I had my very own princess ice cream cake. Who doesn't love that?!
|"Riding" the bear outside the carousel at the zoo...|
|Riding the carousel. SO. MUCH. FUN!!!|
I got some fantastic presents - I am a VERY VERY lucky little girl. I got my VERY OWN Bicycle, a new dolly to use in the bathtub, and my very own trampoline and new VEGGIETALES DVDs (I LOVE them!) among other things!
|My birthday purse from Mrs. Linda!|
|New Bike! Gracie seems to think she can help me learn to ride it...we shall see!|
|Have I mentioned I love VeggieTales?!|
I am growing by leaps and bounds...I am 9 MONTHS OLD NOW! Mom and Dad can hardly believe it! I am into everything and am quickly trying desperately to keep up with my sister. I want to walk SOOOOO badly! Some of my May highlights are:
FOOD! I can say that I'm *finally* starting to eat solids better. Chewing and swallowing can be difficult on a girl! That said, I am a big fan of NON-baby food. If it's puree'ed, don't even think I'll eat it. It needs to have some substance or I am turned off completely!
|Look at me eatin' like a big girl!|
|Mid-scarfing with my best buddy, Ava|
|A spoon...soon it will be filled with deliciousness!|
|Yes, I climbed up the slide to get up here all by myself...|
SUNSHINE! I know Big Sister Kaet mentioned we have had sunshine. Unless you live in the Seattle area, I'm not sure you realize what a big deal that is around here. It means PARK TIME and POOL TIME! YAY!
|Climbing UP the slide on the playground|
|Yeah - I'm just that cute.|
|Off to the park|
|This zoo place is sort of fun!|
|I love my Aunt Rachel|
TALKIN! I make so many sounds and LOVE to talk. I'm very vocal about just about everything and the great thing about it is I'm making my Big Sister Kaet make more different sounds too!!!
JUST PLAIN PRETTY. Mommy doesn't have a category for these shots except to say that she thinks I've got a pretty spectacular smile and sharing it with everyone is the right thing to do!!!
|Coy and cute...|
|Pretty in purple|
|I mean really? Can I get any cuter? Probably not...|
|Just bein' silly with Dad.|
|I came home from school one day in this very stripedy outfit...I thought it was just as funny as Mom did!|
Until then...have a GREAT day!
