Swinging with Grandma

I was at Grandma's today and she loved swinging me up and down. It surprised me every time. I loved it but part of me was concerned I'd fall.

My first homemade sweet potatoes

Hmmmm, never had this before.

Super yum!

Mom is too busy taking pictures to find my mouth.

Quit with the pics and feed me for real!

Stake Conference 2013

Today was stake conference. The relief society room was set up with a tv and was a great hang out spot for babies. I made a friend and Mommy got to hear some of conference. Daddy was home sick with a migraine.

Resident Appreciation Day

Our apartment complex set up a resident appreciation day to introduce the new staff and make it look like its worth the higher prices to live here. I went down the slide for my first time. 

I was unsure at first but then I couldn't wait to climb back up and go down again.

I wa too little to ride but the nice owners let me get a picture sitting on their pony. I liked petting the pony, even if I cuddled Mommy after.

I got to take pictures at the photo booth and I would not cooperate. I HATE PROPS!

Pre-Christmas Morning Preparation

When Mommy and Daddy get rid of my changing table, it's like my first Christmas morning. All of my toys I'd forgotten about were tossed in the middle of the floor. I deserve to be spoiled.

Trying the spoon

I wanted to try feeding myself again. I'm kinda getting better but eating with my hands is still easier.

Top Teeth are a Pain

If you look real carefully, you can see my top two teeth coming in. Mommy and Daddy sure can feel them when I bite. My bottom teeth are all the way in and easy to see.

A Day with Auntie Shell

Auntie Shell came all the way from LA California just to see me. Sure she also happened to go to cirque ole with Kaylinn but I know that I'm the main reason. I spent today crawling all over kaylinns house, plYing with her dogs, having pictures taken by Kelley and being spoiled by Shell.

Daughter of a Mouse

Today I saw Dr Madrigal. I am 18lbs 14oz, exactly 10 pounds heavier than the day I was born, and I am 28 1/2" tall, 7 1/2 inches taller than the day I was born. Today was flu shot day and I have been extra crabby, on top of the fact that my two too teeth are trying to come in. Daddy brought home his flag from scout leader training, if only I had mouse ears.

Dressed for early church

Today mommy had a 7am church meeting. I wore the outfit grandma bought me and thought I looked so darn cute that I made sure everyone noticed me as they came in for church.

I was given a baby fork with my food. I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do with it.

Fun at the park

Daddy was at camp for training stuff so mom and I went to a new park today. Buchanan park. I got to feel the grass. It was a little strange and I wasn't sure about crawling on it.

I wanted to get in the swing backwards because the sun was in my face. It was so much fun I kept waving my arms and giggling.

I found a stick while crawling. It was a great day to go for a walk/crawl.

While Mama was cleaning Gma and Gpa's, I decided to chase the vacuum and try to attack it. That vacuum is taking over MY floor!

I had fun crawling around the floor with Grandpa, after it was all vacuumed and swept clean. I became just a blur because I wouldn't slow down, not even for a picture. I love having Grandpa crawling over top of me, it makes me laugh.

Lazy Mama = I feed myself

This is what happens when mommy doesn't feel well and gets lazy for a day. She dumps my puréed pumpkin soup thickened with rice cereal on my tray and let's me feed myself. It may not look like it, but I actually got a lot of it in my mouth.

Cause and Effect, A Tough Lesson

I cry, mama gives me back my teething biscuit. She goes back to doing dishes. I throw it on the floor and cry, she gives it back to me and goes back to dishes. I throw it on the floor and cry, she gives it back and goes back to doing dishes. I throw it on the floor and cry, she keeps doing dishes. I keep crying and she still does dishes, sometimes giving me back my biscuit. I finally give up on crying and watch her finish up the kitchen. Evidently if all my needs have been met and I'm just crying while Mama is on a project, She's not going to stop the project till it's done. Once I learned that, I became happy baby and Mama rescued me when the dishes were under control.

What are you feeding me?

Today was baby food making day so mommy had me try pumpkin soup. I didn't like it as a soup and kept making fake gagging noises to show her how much I didn't like it. Then she mixed in some baby rice cereal and I realized that it wasn't the flavor I didn't like, but the texture. Yum!

Mommy also had me try homemade teething biscuts. They're a little tough, but ok. I do get tired of them quick but they are entertaining for a few minutes.
