C is for Costume

Happy Halloween! My mom made me a costume. I was a ladybug. We went to the YMCA on Friday for a costume party. Lots of kids were there, and a good time was had by all. I got to stay up past my bedtime.

While I was at the party, my dad put me in the balls in the gym.

What you're looking at here is me about to unleash some of my famous dribbling maneuvers.

There weren't too many quality pictures of my costume from Friday night, so we had a re-enactment today.

I decided to ham it up. I'm a vicious ladybug. Arrrrrgggghhh!

Aaaaarrrrgggghhh!

Aaaaarrrrggggghhhh! And, oh yeah, uh, grrrrrrr!

Well, that was strenuous!

I make a pretty convincing vicious ladybug.

B is for Banana

Hi there.
22-October-2005 highchair1.jpg
Just hanging out in my new high chair waiting to see what Mom is going to feed me today. It's really fun!

Hey Mom, what are you doing over there?
22-October-2005 highchair2.jpg
Are you making me something to eat?

I'm getting really hungry over here!
22-October-2005 highchair3.jpg
I'm so hungry that I'm going to have to resort to eating this bib if you don't get some food in my mouth soon!

What the heck is this? Bananas?
26-October-2005 banana1.jpg
Ew. I think I hate them.

Seriously, Mom. These bananas are gross.
26-October-2005 banana2.jpg
They don't taste anything like milk.

Now that I've choked down a few bites, I feel a little better.
26-October-2005 banana3.jpg
It really wasn't as bad as I made it out to be. I might even try bananas again someday.

Stay tuned to see what I eat next...

A is for Apple

Mom, dad, grandma, and I went to the orchard this weekend. On the way there, I got to try out my new car seat. I also got to interact intensely with grandma because she sat in the back seat with me.

They had a swing there, and you know how much I like swings.

Wheeeeee!

Also, there was this cow.

The cow says, "MOOOOOOOO". I didn't find this terribly exciting. Can you tell?

We walked around the orchard for awhile. The highlight of this was grandma repeatedly telling my dad that I was cold. I wasn't, really.

Then there were the pumpkins. Oh the pumpkins.
22-October-2005 pumpkin1.jpg
My mom and dad took about eight thousand pictures of me with these pumpkins. Whoop-tee-doo.

Wait a minute, what's this?
22-October-2005 pumpkin2.jpg
Don't bother me. I'm conducting stem cell research.

Alright, you got me.
22-October-2005 pumpkin3.jpg
I actually had a little bit of fun with the pumpkins.

Then there were the obligatory group pictures.

Me and dad and grandma.

Same thing as before, except with mom, not grandma.

I come from exceptionally good-looking stock. Don't 'cha think?

A swing and a spoon

Mom and Dad took me to the park the other day so that I could try out this swing.
16-October-2005 swing1.jpg
Look out, here I come. Wheeeeeeeee!

Yeah, this is actually kind of fun.
16-October-2005 swing2.jpg
Don't be fooled by my serious expression. Mom and Dad just couldn't get any of my smiles caught on camera.

In other news, I have started eating rice cereal.
16-October-2005 cereal2.jpg
Mom feeds me with a spoon. I like to help.

I think that I kind of like eating cereal.
16-October-2005 cereal3.jpg
It's a little bland, but it's good practice for me. Mom says if I am good at eating cereal, I can move on to other foods like squash and peas.

I tried to be neat, but couldn't avoid getting cereal all over my face.
16-October-2005 cereal1.jpg
I think this is is a nice look.

Aw, we're all done eating with the spoon?
16-October-2005 cereal4.jpg
Time to clean off my bib!

Another day, another new skill...

Hi there.
11-October-2005 bouncyseat1.jpg
I still spend a lot of time in my bouncy seat, but as you can see, I'm getting a little big for it.

Tonight I practiced sitting in my boppy.
11-October-2005 siting2.jpg
Sometimes I need a little bit of assistance with this new skill.

Check it out!!! I'm doing it!!!
11-October-2005 sitting3.jpg
Look Mom, no hands!

Uh oh...
11-October-2005 whoops4.jpg
I'm still a little top heavy on account of my enormous brain.

Let's try this again.
11-October-2005 whoops5.jpg
Sometimes I get distracted by items like this lovely hemp rug.

Oh no, here I go again....
11-October-2005 whoops6.jpg
This is a lot harder than it looks.

I totally meant to do this.
11-October-2005 whoops7.jpg
Just had to get myself into proper crawling position. I can't actually crawl yet, but it's never too early to get in some practice.

Rolling, rolling, rolling...

Well, since the last ESP episode, I have mastered rolling over, to my right. Rolling to the left is still a tricky maneuver, but I've got the concept down, at least.

I start out on my blanket.
02-October-2005 blanket1.jpg
Then I start the rolling process.

It takes a lot of concentration.
02-October-2005 blanket2.jpg
You can see how hard I'm concentrating.

I like to roll myself up in my blanket.
02-October-2005 burrito1.jpg

It's really fun.
02-October-2005 burrito2.jpg
Someday I'm gonna keep going to turn myself into a Baby Burrito. Maybe by Halloween.

Sometimes, when I'm trying something new, it helps me if I put my fingers in my mouth.
02-October-2005 fingers1.jpg
Not really! I just like to suck on my fingers!

But once I get going, it's hard to stop.
02-October-2005 floor1.jpg
Watch me go!

Going...
02-October-2005 floor2.jpg
going...

Still going.
02-October-2005 floor3.jpg
How did I get way over here?
