Mom's been a little busy lately, so I'll just give you a quick glimpse through my eyes of some of what we've been up to the past few weeks. A veritable smörgåsbord of images awaits you....
I've had some visitors, like my friend Allie here (and her mom and sister came too):
It was soooooo fun to pull on her hair! Mama says Allie is special because she was one of her kindergarten students and she was the flower girl in Mama and Daddy's wedding! But that was several years ago and now she's a big fifth grader and growing up. See the difference?
I also had a special visit from my "Uncle" Roshan. He had to come all the way from California to meet me! Roshan was one of Mama's dearest friends in high school and now he works for Google. It was so fun to meet him. He loves babies and we had lots of fun playing together.
Daddy Bob even came for a visit last weekend (without Mama K! I think he wanted all the snuggles to himself).
My most recent visitor was my cousin Caroline. She's so big and smart. I think she'll be teaching me about a lot of things.
Like how to swing...
And I will teach her how to wear pretty pink hairbows (Sorry, Aunt Jennifer!!)
Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you! For my 1/2 year birthday, Mama bought me this fantastic outside swing! (She's really into birthdays and presents and since I had a rough start to life, she thought that six months warranted a present of its own! I didn't complain.) Daddy hung it up on our playset outside and it's been such beautiful fall weather, we've been playing outside a lot. I probably won't be going to many parks the next few months since Mama says they're full of germs. Good thing I've got a little mini-park right in my backyard for pretty warm days!
We've been taking lots of stroller walks in the pretty weather, too. But sometimes I get a little sleepy. On this walk, Mama and Aunt Wendi caught me and Chloe both fast asleep, in the exact same position....
Other than that, around here things have been just about the same. Mama is always worried about eating and sleeping. She's been making lots of homemade baby food for me and so far I've tried sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, green beans, banana squash, prunes, pumpkin, bananas, avacados and just this afternoon Mama made some pears (I haven't tried them yet though). Honestly, I'm really not that into all this spoon feeding nonsense. Mom has to sing and make ridiculous sounds and silly faces just to get through meal time. She keeps saying I have to learn though, so we practice twice every day. Here I am eating some sweet potatoes:
Gotta make sure you get every last drop!
I'm getting a little big for my swaddle, so I've been trying to tell Mama that I'm ready to move on to sleep sacks. The problem is, I've gotten really used to my swaddles, so I have a hard time falling asleep without it! We're working on it though. Here I am taking my first nap without a swaddle, in a sleep sack instead. I may look peaceful here, but I woke up after just thirty minutes. Mama wants me to make sure you're not fooled.
That's about it from around here! Thanks for coming to check on me!
