June was an exciting month around here. Lots of visits with family, LOTS of birthdays, and a few trips to the doctor :( WARNING: Tons of pictures and videos...hope you have some time to kill to read this entry!
The month started with a trip to Florida to see my Uncle Connor graduate from High School!
|Connor...HS Graduate...Next stop - UF!|
This was my very first trip in a plane in my own seat, but without a car seat. The verdict: planes are scary! I did NOT like having my own seat and Mommy is pretty sure all the people around us knew it too. As a result, both going and coming back to Seattle were less-than-stellar experiences. Looks like next time the car seat is a must!
|You see this look? This is the look of a girl not excited to board that plane!|
|Reading to Great-Uncle John|
|Grampy & Me|
|Uncles 3 - Jason, Kevin & Connor|
|Uncle JJ and me|
|I love my Great Aunt Nancy|
|Great Aunt Nancy and Kaet Poolside|
|Uncle Kevin and me in the pool|
|TOO. MUCH. FUN!|
|Yes. I love this. I REALLY REALLY do!|
|Day two of pool time...hangin' w/ my Grampy|
|All tuckered out on my Grammy|
|Snack time poolside|
|I love my Uncle Kevin. He rocks.|
In addition to the pool, we got to spend a day at the beach and I have to say, I could really get used to hanging out on a beach!
|Uncle Kevin and me having a chat...|
|Florida suits me...|
|Making a break for the water!|
|Playing in a pool at the beach with Cousin Lukie. A pool AND a beach at once! It doesn't get any better!|
|Lunchtime with Great Aunt Nancy. (Note my perfectly puckered lips...now if I could just blow thru them!)|
|Got her hat!|
After our trip to Florida, we went to see my Sissy's VERY OWN apartment. It was her birthday while we were in Florida, so we got to take her presents (which I helped open) and play with her for the day. It was FANTASTIC!
|Yay for birthdays!|
|I love my Sissy. I love my Sissy. I LOVE my Sissy!|
|And she loves me! :)|
I discovered a new friend this month, who I really like. His name is Barney and he is a purple dinosaur! Mom isn't sure she likes him a whole lot, but he makes me smile!
Later in the month was Father's Day. Gracie and I got to hang out all day with my Dad. He's pretty awesome.
At school, I spent time reading books and playing in the sensory table, plus I got to see my Baby Sister Grace at school a lot. The teachers make sure we get to play together!
|Reading at school|
|Sensory table fun!|
|Visiting with BSG while she takes a buggy ride|
|Testing out Madison's bed|
But we've decided to keep my crib going for now...so I can burrow in!
June was pretty cold and rainy here. It's not July 4th yet, and in Seattle, summer doesn't come before then. That said, we did get out some and I got to try my new bike out in the driveway! I'm still a bit short for it, but I REALLY enjoyed riding on it!! :)
Looking forward to summer arriving here so we can play in water and ride bikes!!!
I loved going to Florida to visit all my aunts, uncles and grandparents. I got to meet my Great-Uncle John and Great-Aunt Ro, my Uncles Tommy, Jason & Connor, and hang out near a pool!
|Grampy and me|
|Hangin' with my Great Aunt Nancy|
|Sleepin' on my Great-Uncle Bob|
|Readin' books with Uncle Kevin|
|All gussied up with Uncle Kevin|
|Beach Babe Gracie|
|Crawlin' on the sand|
|Lots of toys here!|
|Big fan of the pool at the beach!|
|THAT was EXHAUSTING!|
On our return, we visited Sissy and her house was so much fun! I sure miss her when she's gone!
|Playing at Sissy's|
|Hee Hee Hee Hee! Love my Sissy!|
Here's an even better "show off" video!
At school, we've had lots of fun learning new things and playing. I showed off my love of water by playing in the cornstarch sensory tub. I climbed in and out and out and in and really shocked Ms. Audrey at how much I liked it.
|Corn Starch Gracie|
|Think I like this much?!|
|Too much fun!|
|Ava and Gracie on a buggy ride|
|What? I like to nap, OK?! And look at me...on a cot like a big kid!|
I've gotten to spend a lot more time playing with my Big Sister Kaet this month. We're starting to really get along together. She loves me and hugs me and sometimes leads me astray...not too often though! (Isn't that what big sisters are supposed to do?)
|My Big Sister Kaet loves me!|
|Showing me some naughty skills...|
|I didn't do anything!!!|
Though it's been a bit gray and rainy here, we have gotten out to the park. Good thing 'cuz I have learned to LOVE the swing!
And just because...my Mom loves my forced laugh!
