My new hat and fork
Hello fans, welcome to another edition of ESP.
Life is good. Nothing exciting really.
Except that my dad got me this wicked awesome cycling cap
It's the only hat I'll wear.
It's not always an easy hat to wear.
But I'm getting the hang of it.
I prefer to wear this hat as activewear.
It's a great hat to wear when I'm playing with my toys.
I think you blinded me with that flash!
Whew, my vision came back.
I'm trying to look cool here, without looking like I'm trying to look cool.
I forgot what I was doing in this picture.
But it's safe to say that I was concentrating very hard.
Yep, this is the hat for me.
Ask mom about how hard it is to get me to wear a different hat.
In other news, I've begun using tools.
Veggie Booty is technically a type of finger food, but this fork is a hoot.
With a little help from Dad, I can harpoon the Veggie Booty pieces on the fork.
It's a serious business.
Down the hatch!
This is one amazing device!
I may never touch my food with my fingers again!

An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Last weekend I went to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch with my parents.
I got to drive a tractor while I was there. It's a very serious job.
It was much more fun when I had my mom pushing me.
It's hard to go really fast when your feet don't quite reach the pedals.
I actually had a really good time at the orchard.
Not that you'd know it by this expression.
Once I was out in the wide open spaces of the pumpkin patch, I practiced my walking.
Hey! What's that?
I'm going to walk over and check it out.
I was so excited to be walking all by myself that I practically broke into a run.
Look out! Here I come!
That was fun, but my legs can't always keep up when I try and go that fast.
Enough of this walking around, let's go check out the pumpkins.
I'm not really sure how I ended up in this position.
This pumpkin is a lot heavier than it looks!
OK, I'm done trying to lift pumpkins.
It's much more fun to just look happy while in the pumpkin patch.
And here's one more cute one.
I like pumpkins quite a bit!
After all the fun in the pumpkin patch, we ventured out into the orchards to pick some apples.
Dad was nice enough to let me help him sample this apple.
Then I picked out my very own apple.
Gosh, where do I even start with this thing?
OK, let's see if I can do this...
It's not as easy as you'd think...
Hey, not bad for someone that only has four teeth.
Forget cutting apples into bite-sized pieces, I can do some pretty good damage to them whole!

Hi there! How are you?
I really like playing with my school bus.
"Stop and go! Stop and go! Off to school, let's take it slow...."
Betcha didn't know that cow-pigs had to go to school too!
I still love to push this lawnmower toy around.
When I get tired, I stop and take a little break.
I really like this orange ball!
I'm going to throw it very far and that takes concentration.
I think the ball might need to go to school too.
Just in case you can't tell from this picture, I actually took a few more steps on my own.
Whenever Mom is in the playroom with me, I insist that she take off her shoes.
I really enjoy carrying them around.
Today I thought I would try them on.
Are you impressed with my fantastic gymnastic maneuvers?
Ah ha, this is more like it.
I think they're just the right size!
I also spend a lot of time yakking on my cell phone.
I'm actually multi-tasking and watching a little Sesame Street at the same time. That would explain the zombified look I'm sporting in this picture.
When I'm done talking on my phone, it sure does make a great chew toy.
Well, that's all I've got for today. Tomorrow I'm off to the orchard with my mom and dad, so there will no doubt be plenty of pumpkin pictures posted sometime next week. I'm going to try and talk the parents into taking me on a hayride this year. It should be lots of fun!

Working On My Walking
I've spent a lot of time practicing walking on my own this week.
As you can see, I'm very excited about standing up all by myself.
OK, I better concentrate on psyching myself up for some walking...
Notice the tongue. It always pops out when I'm concentrating really hard.
And here it is again...
I just took one step and I'm thinking very, very hard about taking another.
Then, of course, there's the tongue sticking out just for fun.
I promise I'm not being rude. I just like to stick out my tongue!
Here are a few more pictures of me in action:
I consider it a success when I can take 2 or 3 steps without collapsing in a fit of hysterical laughter. Third time's the charm!
Whew, this was a lot of work.
I'll just sit here for a minute and contemplate trying it again tomorrow...
