Too busy for blogging...
First, I must apologize to my die-hard fans for such a long wait between entries.
Blogging has been very difficult as I've had a lot of activities on my social calendar this month. Between Thanksgiving, playgroups, swimming lessons, and my ECFE class, I've had a busy couple of weeks!
You've probably noticed that I'm sporting a spoon in these photos.
I have to say, I'm getting really good at getting food into my mouth with it!
I open my mouth waaaaay before the food even gets there.
It's much easier for the food to hit an open target.
Sometimes, though, I prefer to use my fingers in lieu of the spoon.
Mmmmm. This peach yogurt is delicious!
You know, I can't even remember what was so funny when this happened.
Whatever it was, it sure was hilarious!
Yep, I'm really getting good at this maneuver.
Are you impressed yet?
Now I'm just showing off.
In case you were wondering, those front teeth are two of my six teeth that are all the way out. I'm working on growing some molars, so I've been feeling a little crabby about it lately. I wish they'd just get here already so I can go back to being my usual delightful self.
Well, that's all I've got for this entry. Grandma's going to be here tomorrow, so I'm sure we'll take plenty of pictures over the weekend. Ta ta for now!

A brisk day at the park
Hold on a sec while I turn on the light.
There. Now we can see each other.
What did you want to talk about?
Why yes my diaper needs to be changed.
This is a good time for a game of peek-a-boo. Seriously, is there a better game than peek-a-boo? Alright, let's quit fooling around so we can go to the park.
I'm ready to go Mom!
What? Am I forgetting something?
Of course! My handbag.
I keep my things in this bag. Wouldn't want to forget my things.
Ok, got it. Let's go.
What did I forget now!?
Ok, it's good to finally be on the road.
What in heaven's name is going on with my hands. Such an odd color.
Seriously, what the heck is this!
I modeled my hat for the photo shoot.
But I don't really wear it in real life. Kinda like how Tiger Woods doesn't really drive a Buick.
Of course, no trip to the park is complete without the swings.
I like to swing myself right out of the picture. Check out my legs.
Alright Mom. Ready to roll.
Hop in! I'll push.

My Blue Balloon
Mom and I went to the grocery store the other day and I spotted this balloon before we even made it to the check out lane.
I was extra-good while the cashier scanned our groceries, so I was able to bring the ballon home with me. I was soooooo excited!
From that point on, I became obsessed with my blue balloon.
Every time I saw it floating in the living room, I had to go play with it. Balloon! Balloon! Balloon!
It seems that my head has been replaced by this balloon. How silly is this?
Although my balloon and I had a lot of laughs together, we also had our serious moments.
My hair is also seriously static-y.
I've got it now!
Whew! I was worried for a second.
You might be wondering how my 18-month check-up went yesterday. I'm pleased to report that I am in perfect health. My doctor was very impressed with how much I have grown. She was also impressed with my extensive vocabulary. I can say more than 50 words! I now weigh 23 pounds, 1 ounce and I'm 31 inches tall. That's all for this edition! See you again soon!

Hot (pink) Dog!
Well, despite my depressed expression in this photo, I really did enjoy Halloween this year.
As you can see, I went as a hot pink dog. (Daw!! Woof! Woof!)
I preferred it without the ears, so lots of people were confused about what I was supposed to be. Isn't it obvious that I'm a dog? I mean, check out the tail. That's not a bunny tail. Or a dragon tail. Or a dinosaur tail. I was a dog, people!
I really enjoyed wearing my dog suit - I got to wear it to three different parties! Plus, I put it on a few more times at home just for fun. I was oddly fascinated by my hot pink dog suit.
OK, that's all I've got for Halloween pictures this year. Here are a few shots of me enjoying myself at the park with Dad last weekend:
I'm not sure if I'm surprised or yawning in this particular photo.
I love going down the slide!
I can climb up to the top and slide down all by myself. Quite a feat for an almost-18-month-old, don'tcha think?
I found some itty bitty pinecones on the ground.
Checking them out and walking at the same time takes a lot of concentration!
Yes, I said walking. I walk pretty much everywhere now. It's a much better mode of transportation than crawling. Why didn't I think of this sooner?
Anyway, this picture is pretty funny because my shadow looks like the shadow of a very tall, very thin person. Or maybe it's a baby on stilts. Hard to say.
Well, I'm afraid that's it for this edition of ESP. I've got a busy week coming up - going for my 18-month checkup (no shots!) and then I'm also going to get my 18-month photos done. Let's hope that I don' t have any more walking catastrophes between now and then...
