Y is for You want pictures? I've got pictures!
Well, here are some fun photos from my vacation and the past week.
I played some golf while I was in Florida.
Mom and I posed by the pool.
If it was just a little bit warmer, you know I would jump in for a swim.
Uncle Scott and Robin came down for a visit.
Uncle Scott got rid of some of that unsightly facial hair so I was not as nervous about hanging out with him this time.
Here I am playing with the xylophone on land.
I'm a very good musician!
It's very important to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun.
But I happen to think I look very cool in them too.
The pool wasn't quite warm enough for a swim, so Mom took me for a dip in the spa.
Yes, I am playing the amphibious xylophone again.
Baby Jacuzzi was held nightly in Nanna and Grandpa's big tub.
This is one of my more serious moments in the Jacuzzi.
Grandpa and I spent some time on the new patio checking out the sales flyer for the Home Depot.
I made some suggestions. Nanna has a lot of projects for Grandpa around the house.
Here is a nice picture of me and my grandparents.
Oh yeah, Stretch too.
And here we have an official family picture.
Unfortunately, I was feeling rather melancholy during the photo shoot and I didn't really crack a smile.
After I returned to Minnesota from my vacation, Mom and I went to Minnehaha Falls.
We had to climb down a lot of stairs to get this view of the waterfall.
A few days later, we stopped at the neighborhood park for a quick ride on the swing.
I really like to swing!
Excellent job, Mom!
Let's do it again!
Whew! That was quite a few pictures for one entry. I suppose that's what I get when I slack off on the old blog. Tomorrow I am going to the zoo, just in time for Z!

X is for Xylophone
Whew! I've had a very busy couple of weeks as a one-year-old. Mom and I went to Florida to visit Nanna and Grandpa. They gave me a xylophone for my birthday. I really like it. It's amphibious.
I like to boogie while playing my xylophone in the Baby Jacuzzi.
I have lots of other pictures from my vacation, but I've been way too busy to blog this week. I hope that the picture of me with my amphibious xylophone will satisfy my fans until I can do a proper entry. See you again soon!

W is for Wild and Wacky Weekend
I'm back with more pictures from my exciting birthday weekend!
Here I am in front of the lilac bush in the backyard.
I just love spring.
So many pretty flowers to inspect.
Here I am in front of the lilacs with Grandma.
We got a little goofy. She can always make me laugh.
I haven't posted a picture of me and Mom in awhile.
We posed in front of the lilac bush too.
I went to the Grand Ole Creamery twice while Grandma was in town!
Mom and Dad let me taste their ice cream. I really like those Creamery waffle cones! Yum!
I finally figured out how to crawl on all fours!
I'm also content to just sit in one place.
I'm enjoying my new toys.
We went to Buca di Beppo for a tasty Italian meal while my relatives were in town.
I had lots of fun with Aunt Phyllis (that's her on the left) and Aunt Carrie.
We also went to Ft. Snelling while everyone was in town. We saw lots of old buildings and some soldiers practiced marching in the middle of the fort. I didn't even flinch when they shot their guns.
After a busy weekend, all I want to do is kick back and relax. I'm just gonna chill like this until my next blog entry...
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you about my one-year checkup! I am totally healthy. I now weigh 20 lbs 7 oz and I'm 28 inches tall! I had to get some shots and they drew some blood. I didn't like that part, but I'm done with shots and stuff for at least three more months. Whew!

V is for Very Happy Birthday!
I turned ONE on Friday, May 5.
No, you're not confused. I'm still wearing my Santa pj's even though it's Cinco de Mayo. Yes, I'm aware that Christmas was several months ago. And yes, they still fit.
Oooooh...what do we have here?
Are those for me?
Mom made a fancy ladybug cake. It was chocolate on the inside.
This one was for the grown-ups. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Aunt Phyllis and Aunt Carrie were all there to celebrate with me.
I got my very own vanilla pound cake.
Complete with an unlit candle on top.
Actually, this candle doubles nicely as a spoon.
I'm not quite sure what I think about all this hullaballoo.
Hey, there's an awful lot of icing on this candle.
What the heck should I do with it now?
OK, that's enough cake.
Let's all throw our hands up in the air 'cuz it's my birthday!
Here I am in my birthday suit.
Tee hee. I'm on my way to the Baby Jacuzzi.
After my special Birthday Jacuzzi, I got to tear into those presents I was checking out earlier.
Let me see if I can use my magical powers to guess what is in this package.
It was fun to open my presents and all, but I preferred to play with the wrapping.
I am sooooooo silly.
Yup, still having fun with the tissue paper.
Can I have a birthday every day?
Whew. That was tiring. Maybe we should stick to having birthdays just once a year.
I have a lot more pictures from my exciting birthday weekend, but I think I'll save the rest of them for my next post. This post is all about me (and my birthday), but I'll share some pictures of my relatives in the next ESP entry. We had lots of fun this weekend and I've got the pictures to prove it!
