Sticks and Standing
How are things going? Life here is pretty good.
Dad and I went to the park and I had fun with this stick.
Abracadabra! On the count of three, you will turn into a toad!
Hey, I think there's something wrong with this magic wand.
It doesn't seem to do anything exciting.
I've learned a new skill.
No, it's not putting my fingers in my mouth...
Check it out, I can pull myself up to a standing position so that I can gnaw on the side of my playpen.
Standing up is great!
It's really changing my perspective. Watch out, I'll be walking before you know it!

And you thought spaghetti was a messy meal...
This is what chicken parmesan looks like when I'm done with it.
I had to spend a few extra minutes in the Baby Jacuzzi after this episode. Whew!

I'm Serious About Spaghetti
Mom made spaghetti for dinner the other night. I really enjoyed it.
It takes a lot of concentration to get this messy.
I've been doing a lot of pointing too.
I'm not quite sure what I'm pointing at here, but I'm pretty impressed with my pointing skills.
Hmmm. What do we have here?
It appears that I have some sort of red saucy substance all over my hands.
This requires further investigation. Let's see what happens when I put my finger in my mouth.
Yep! It's spaghetti sauce, just as I suspected.
I spent a lot of time at the shop with Dad this week. I helped him run some errands and I also helped him sell some bicycles.
I put just as much thought into recommending bicycles as I do into choosing which cracker to eat next.
Today it was really hot outside. Mom took me to the park so that I could hang out with some of my friends.
I had a lot of fun trying to ride this bicycle. I wonder if Dad would consider selling me a sweet ride like the one I'm checking out here?
I had a few introspective moments today in the grass.
This is nice.
When I was finished contemplating my navel and other such things, I decided to crawl back over to Mom.
I had to adjust my crawling style since the grass really tickled my knees.
After the park, I went home and had a snack.
Please be sure to check out my teeth in this photo. They're getting really big!
Now that I am one and over 20 pounds, I can ride facing forward in my carseat.
I didn't mind riding backwards, but it sure is more fun now that I can see where I am going!

Z is for Zoo
I went to the zoo last week.
This is a giraffe. But you probably knew that.
And the flamingos.
I really like to watch the flamingos.
Evidently, all the animals in this zoo have really long necks.
Sometimes Mom and Dad put me in the Pack 'n' Play while they're getting meals ready in the kitchen.
If I have enough toys in there with me, I can have a great time.
I learned that I can make funny faces by pressing against the mesh.
It gets better.
How about this attractive mug?
Hard to resist.
This one is my best.
It took a couple tries to get this one just right.
The Pack 'n' Play is good for doing a lot of fun stuff.
Even though it's sort of a little baby jail, it's not so bad.
