Before he left, Dad interrupted me while I was doing some squats and then managed to find my tickle spot.

Undeterred, I continued with my squats after the tickle attack ceased.

What a sunny Sunday it was! Mom and Dad took me out for a walk at Stanford so Dad could get some exercise before going on a plane ride. (Plane ride? Yeah, I don't get to see him again until Wednesday. BOO, right?)

Later in the afternoon, Mom and I went to visit her family for a bit. They introduced me to a new toy called a piano. Here I am composing my first concerto.

We also played with an old favorite: the cellphone!

Grandpa helped me achieve new heights of flying baby fun (not pictured, but I grinned up a storm). Then we had cupcakes from Mom's favorite bakery.

Bibi also shared some with me...by dropping it on my head. Oops.

Then I didn't even get to eat the crumbs! Double BOO.

Today was Mom's birthday, so she got to set the plan for the day. Good thing the first thing she picked was play time on the floor!

Later on, we had a nice outdoor brunch in a shady spot.

Then we made a stop at REI to get me a new ride for when Mom and Dad go on longer walks. After a nap, we took it for a spin! I think I need to grow into it a bit, but it's fun being so high up.

After our warm sunny walk, we cooled down with a big boy bath.

We threw in a couple of toys. Yeah, just a couple.

I told Dad, "Come on in, the water's fine." But even my "I'm not kidding" face didn't convince him.

Zoo

Mom and Dad played hooky today and took me to the zoo! We saw all kinds of interesting animals I've only seen in books: giraffes and polar bears and gorillas and hippos and ostriches and penguins and kangaroos and lions and leopards and an anteater. Those things are funky.

Mom showed me how to do an agile anteater tongue.

I showed the flamingos how I can eat my whole fist.

It was a great day.

I love a good bath, especially when I can sit up and play with toys at the same time.

I think I'm about ready for the big boy bath. More room for toys!

Today Emma took me to Diddalidoo, where I got to roam around in padded areas and play with fun wall games.

When I can walk I am going to rule this place!

Oh hi guys! Good morning!

Just having a bit of a giggly morning, myself.

Can you tell?

More family fun time at Gymboree.

Today I showed off my crawling! Everyone was suitably impressed.

Although, Mom was a little concerned that I was enthusiastically crawling towards Gymboree's creepy clown mascot. She'd rather I crawl away from all manner of clown.

Family trip to Costco! Fun, even though Mom and Dad refused to buy me a giant inflatable pool play zone.

They did let me gnaw on my very own chunk of fresh bread, though.

Saturday at the park with Claire!

I was very happy to see her.

But we also played on our own for a while.

I got to ride on the swings, as usual.

And Mom documented me riding on the swings, as usual.

Overall, it was a great day for everyone!

I was grinning so big that if you look very closely, you can even see my tooth.

Now that I'm practically crawling, you can expect many more photos of me getting up in people's business.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Mom and Dad tried a new motivation to get me to locomote: Mom's cellphone. See the results.

Mom and Dad came to Gymboree today! I showed Dad how I am the bounciest. All those other babies just sit placidly like goobers. Not this guy.

I enjoyed today's sunny weather as it should be enjoyed: outside flirting with an older lady!

Don't worry -- her husband's cool with it.

Celebrated the wedding of our friends Dan and Meg this afternoon. I've known them my whole life and it was a thrill to see Dan finally put a ring on it. Of course, I got a bit dressed up for the occasion.

I also enjoyed a chance to socialize with some of Dad's other old friends, like Logan.

And I barely made a peep during the ceremony. I had a great time!

A pillow this fine must belong to a handsome fellow indeed! Wonder where I can find him...

I'm seven months old today! So of course Mom took some glamour shots.

They're marred by only a slight preponderance of drool since I totally just got my first tooth!

It's hard to spot unless you're quite close, though. Mom keeps trying to get a photo, but the only way you can really tell is by letting me bite your knuckle. Then there's no mistaking it!

See the yoga in action!

I'm getting better every day, though I still do my fair share of face-planting.

Sunday, April 7, 2013

So, I can't crawl yet, but I can do downward-facing dog.

And whatever the heck this is.

Pants-free and proud.

That's how I roll on warm spring weekends.
