Nude adventure

Tonight, before Mom could get me in the Baby Jacuzzi, I made a run, er, crawl, for it.

See ya later!

I made a beeline for my toy box.

Don't mind me, I'll just check out these books.

It wasn't long before I was off to a different part of the house.

I think I'll just pause for a moment to comb my beautiful locks...

Uh oh...

Looks like Mom is on to me. It's time to head to the Jacuzzi.

And here I am, enjoying my Baby Jacuzzi at last.

I can't believe Mom and Dad still cram me into this little blue tub. Maybe next time I blog about Baby Jacuzzi, I'll be in the big tub. Well, a girl can dream, right?

Some new tricks

It's been awhile since I've posted an extreme close up.

I seem to have a picture like this every time Mom whips out the camera.

I really enjoy a good book. I like to point at the pictures and go "Hmmmm?"

Mom tells me this is a strawberry. I can't say it, but I like to eat them.

Remember the other day when I was pushing my lawnmower around my playroom?

Well, I've found a better way to use it.

I'll just wait here patiently until someone comes along and pushes me.

Why walk when I can ride?

My lawnmower also makes a handy seat.

I was watching a Sesame Street video in this picture. It was very educational. Don't be fooled by the glazed look I'm sporting here. I was learning a lot.

So I can stand up on my own now.

Well, Mom wasn't quick enough with the camera to capture my triumph, but I've been doing it a lot lately.

I'm quite proud of myself.

Standing up is so much fun! Why didn't I try this sooner?

Seeing the sights and talking up a storm

Today I went to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden with my Mom and some friends. We frolicked in the grass, had a baby potluck, and generally had a good time.

This is the most famous sculpture in the Sculpture Garden. It's called "Spoonbridge and Cherry." It's enormous, as you can see from this picture.

We took a walk through the garden after the festivities.

It was exhausting.

Sorry I've been slacking on the blog entries lately. I've just been so busy learning to talk and walk that I can hardly find the time to sit down at the computer and upload all of my adorable photos. In case you were wondering, I'm getting closer to walking. I'm pretty good at it as long as someone is holding my hands. Mom says I might be better at this if I could stop laughing so hard every time I try.

I'm also learning a lot of new words. So far my vocabulary includes: dog (daw!), duck (duh!), thank you (tank ooo), good girl (goo girrrrl), ball (baw) and up (bup). I can also say Mama and Dada. My favorite word though, is DAW! I think that everything is a daw. If it's furry and has four legs, as far as I'm concerned, it's a daw.

Big girl!

I'd like to show you how big I am getting.
August-10-2006 cute.jpg
I went to the doctor for my 15-month check-up this week and I now weigh 21 lbs 4 oz and I'm 29.5 inches tall (that's 2 feet 5.5 inches). I'm also growing two more teeth. Mom and Dad can see them poking through - finally, some front teeth!

I am learning how to brush my own hair.
August-10-2006 hair1.jpg
It takes a lot of concentration.

Brushing my hair makes me hungry sometimes.
August-10-2006 hair2.jpg
Good thing I've got two hands - one for brushing, one for eating.

I like to pull myself up on anything I can find.
August-10-2006 goofy standing.jpg
It's so much fun!

I found this telephone.
August-10-2006 remote telephone.jpg
Whoops, that would be the remote control.

All that talking sure wore me out.
August-10-2006 tired.jpg
I'll just stop here and take a little break.

I'm getting really good at pushing my toys around.
August-10-2006 concentration.jpg
I put a lot of effort into this.

But not so much effort that I can't get a little silly!
August-10-2006 tongue.jpg
Hee hee.

Here are some pictures from today. Mom says this is probably the last time I'll be able to wear this pretty dress. She said it's getting too snug around my middle.
August-12-2006 standing serious.jpg
Here I am concentrating very hard on standing on this lid. You'll want to pay close attention to the tongue in this photo.

I'm learning how to use my shape sorter.
August-12-2006 shapes.jpg
The circle is my favorite shape.

I already know where to put it.
August-12-2006 shapes2.jpg
I get it right every time.

After I played in my playroom, I hung out in the kitchen while Mom made some dinner.
August-12-2006 mischief.jpg
I like getting into mischief now that I can reach more things.

This fork fits nicely in this bottle.
August-12-2006 forks1.jpg
I like the sound of plastic hitting plastic.

I am getting so big that I use a fork when I eat my dinner now.
August-12-2006 fork3.jpg
Too bad I just hold the fork in my hand while I eat with my other hand. Oh well, I'll figure this out soon.

Speed Demon

Hi!
06-August-2006 speed demon 1.jpg
I'd like to take this opportunity to show you my new toy.

Mom found it for me at a garage sale a few months ago. It was free.
06-August-2006 speed demon 3.jpg
I would have paid at least $5 for this sweet ride.

My new toy is pretty fast.
06-August-2006  speed demon 2.jpg
Hey, wait for me!

Since my new toy is so fast, Mom had to hold on to keep me under the speed limit.
06-August-2006 speed demon 4.jpg
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

OK, I think I'm getting the hang of this.
06-August-2006 speed demon 5.jpg
Left foot. Right foot. Left foot. Right foot. Got it.

I make it look so easy.
06-August-2006 speed demon 6.jpg
As you can see, Mom is very proud.

Hey Mom, can you ease up a little on the brakes?
06-August-2006 speed demon 7.jpg
I'm ready to see how fast this baby can go.

Oh yeah....
06-August-2006 speed demon 8.jpg
I'm gonna be unstoppable once I can move my feet fast enough to keep up with my new wheels.
