Feet up

At the Posh Bagel having breakfast with Dad. For a leisurely meal, I like to sit back, relax, and kick my feet up. On the table.

Hey Mom, look what I caught!

Is there a better way to spend a hot summer day?

Friday, June 28, 2013

Of course I'm smiling.

I'm wearing a bib custom-made for me by Grandma Sue!

The other day, Dad helped me try watermelon for the first time.

I liked it so much, I went back for more!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I wasn't feeling well this morning, but by evening story time with Dad, I was back in good spirits.

Monday, June 24, 2013

What do you think of my mischief face? I doubt this will be the last time Mom and Dad see it...

Friday, June 21, 2013

In the mornings, I can't wait to get up and explore everything, pulling myself up on the table, the couch, Mom -- whatever's available.

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Lately I'm kind of a grump in my car seat, but not all the time!

Mom and I had a kitchen utensil jam session today! At first I thought, "What the heck is this for?"

But then I got the hang of it.

I learned how to use the measuring cups to bonk the bowls.

I also learned that Mom is a huge nerd!

Helping Dad choose some healthy alternatives at the grocery store.

For him and Mom, not for me. Vegetables, yuck!

Uncle NoNo took some great pictures of me during dinner his first night here.

I'm not sure why he resisted Uncle hugs during the meal, though?

Happy Father's Day!

I love Dad extra lots because he lets me play with the thermostat.

Here we are picking a background for it. Mom puts in her 2 cents, but Dad lets me pick whatever I want. Thermostat is the best! And Dad is the best for letting me touch it!!!

Hey, who's that petting my head?


You can bet I've been getting plenty of Uncle snuggles this weekend.

After a few long weeks apart, I was delighted to see Grandma and Grandpa again. During our early morning visit I took a little bit to warm up to them again, but soon I was all smiles (and bounces).

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Just hanging out playing with my cups undressed in a full diaper.

Sure, Mom, you can keep taking pictures and change me later.

I refused my morning mango, but happily gobbled up a mini-bagel slathered in yogurt.

Mom and Dad trying to fatten me up is pretty fun! As long as I can feed myself, of course. I'm still not fond of being spoon-fed.

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

At the doctor for my 9-month check-up, we found out I'm on the low end of average baby weights. Guess that's why I have these chiseled cheekbones.

Monday, June 10, 2013

It was hard to say goodbye to Gege. :-(

I look forward to getting more great-grandma hugs again soon.

I kicked off my nine-month birthday by taking a stroll along the beach in Santa Monica. Mom and Dad were surprised that no casting agents stopped us and insisted on casting me in a commercial.

Later, I enjoyed some relaxing reading time with Aunt Randi. She got out some children's books just for me!

Saturday, June 8, 2013

Took a walk with Aunt Randi around UCLA today and met the ferocious Joe Bruin.

UCLA seemed like a lively place, and the campus looks idyllic, like a movie set, but Dad says I can't go here because it's too far from home.

This sensory board keeps me from being sensory bored. Hee!

If only I could bring it on my upcoming road trip...

Thursday, June 6, 2013

What's this?

A suitcase! Hmm...maybe I should take a trip?

Andy, put down your beer and help me pack.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Mom was letting me explore the kitchen while she made breakfast, and, well, this happened.

I had to get her help to bust out of my self-imposed baby cage.

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Showing the other babies how it's done over at Gymboree. And by "it" I mean sitting, which I'm getting to be an old pro at doing.

I had all kinds of fun today! Before lunch, Mom and Dad took me to Diddalidoo, where I explored padded play areas, climbing (and drooling) everywhere.

The place was empty, so I even got to roam around the big kid play structure.

Afterward, I was wiped!

Later, at the Nelsco's, Dad and I relaxed in our matching "suns out, guns out" outfits and enjoyed a cold beer.

Psych! I had the usual: milk.

And later, Aubrey and I shared some cheerios.
