Getting to the point

I'm not sure Aunt Lala gets the point of pointing. You're supposed to look where my finger's aimed, not at me!

Classing it up

Another visit to daycare. Lots of playtime with my new teachers and friends!

New haunt, new crew

Today Mom and Dad took me for a visit to the daycare I'll be starting next week. I got to meet the rest of my inmates -- er -- classmates, and explore the new environment. I'm the oldest of the babies, so I figure I have to show them how it's done.

First, I impressed them all with my dumping-out skills.

Then I wowed them with my page-turning prowess.

And for my grand finale, I walked about six feet -- unfortunately, not pictured. But it was bad ass!

I bet I'll learn all sorts of new things from them too...and get up to plenty of new mischief.

Picky eater

Like Mom, I'm kind of a picky eater...literally! I like to pick apart my food into teeny tiny pieces. Gives new meaning to molecular gastronomy.

At the park with Claire

I enjoyed a lovely trip to the park with my old friend Claire this weekend. While she roamed all over the grass, I mostly stayed absorbed in my cups.

At first, Claire wasn't too sure about Dad.

Or me!

Maybe it's because I kept head-butting her Mom?

People watching

It's no wonder I'm so skinny -- I spend all of dinner checking out the crowds instead of what's on the table!

A day at the beach

Just call me the sandman!

I had lots of fun scooping and dumping this strange granular substance.

My own cupboard!

Mom filled me up a whole cupboard with baby-friendly stuff that I can open and empty if I want. Um, YES, I want!

Here's how it looks before playtime.

And the after...

Big boy bath, take 2

Today I was enjoying a leisurely read with Mom in the bath.

Suddenly I was interrupted!

It was just Dad. Whew! Not everyone is permitted to see me au naturel.

Here comes the hotstepper

Combine two of my favorite things, standing up and moving around, and what do you get?

Trouble!

Clap happy

Emma does such a good job taking care of me, sometimes I just have to give her a hand!

Chatting with Mom

Me: Mom, what do you like most about me?

Mom: What a silly question! What do you think I like best?

Me: My farts.

Hug

Lately my favorite book to read is Hug. Sometimes I just read it myself, flipping through the pages without anybody helping me. But it's better if Mom reads it to me, ideally five times in a row!

I'm even practicing hugging now a little bit. Technically it's more like flopping onto someone and resting my head against them, but I get the gist.

Cavebaby

Today I did some spelunking at Gymboree.

Note to Mom: buy me a headlamp! It'll be worth it, I swear. I will definitely not rip it off within seconds.

Cousins go head to head

At first it looked like Zoe and I might start a duel.

But we nearly ended up snuggling.

Hangin' with Henry

Today Mom and I went to my friend Henry's house for some quality playtime.

This is Henry. He likes Mom's camera.

Keep dreaming, buddy! She won't let you near that thing. Believe me, I've tried.

Henry is six months old and learning to crawl.

I remember when I was just a small baby learning to crawl...

Now I'm an old pro at standing -- even unaided!

Henry showed me his toys and introduced me to his friendly dog Molly. I paid her a visit -- cautiously.

And I showed him the tunnel!

Can't wait till you can crawl, bud. We're going to tear this mother down!

11 months

Celebrating 11 months with Randi and Ilan. I even got presents! Here's me reading one of them with Randi.

I'm not sure about this Ilan character, though...

Ewok this way

I love my new Ewok friend!

Though, I'll admit that I don't treat him very well sometimes.

Drew gets OLD

Today we celebrated my Uncle Drew's birthday! We all had a meal together.

Bibi brought cupcakes...

and I got excited! (Though a bit less excited after I learned they weren't on the menu for babies.)

Then I helped Drew open his presents.

Finally we played for a bit in the tunnel. BOTH of us.

Happy birthday, Uncle Drew. Wow, ten years! You are super old. :)

Goofy times in the tunnel

Mom and I get pretty punchy in the morning, especially when she gets kicky with her feet while I'm in the tunnel.

What a goof!

Two timing

Lately I want to take all the books down and turn all the pages. Often simultaneously. I'm big on multitasking!

Sunday, August 4, 2013

Bushed!

After a long weekend of playing with Mommy and Daddy I'm totally bushed. Maybe I'll even sleep in tomorrow, like until 6:10 at least!

Getting carded

Grocery shopping with Dad this morning, he let me help pay with his credit card, and then hold onto it for a bit afterward. Little does he know, I've memorized the number.

Hello Amazon! I see you sell Cheerios in bulk...
