And on to the presents!

But first, a cute picture of me sitting on my car. I haven't quite figured out how to go forward by myself, but I've got reverse pretty well under control!

What could be finer than to find a phone in the first present I (OK, Mommy) opened! I was so excited, I wasn't even interested in the rest of the presents. (Mommy had to hide it until I had finished so that I would pay attention. I just couldn't believe I finally have my own phone!)

I did move on, and I was excited as more packages revealed many more fun things.

I even got excited about ripping the paper off, but Mommy still had to help.

I discovered that the boxes are fun to sit on!

And that small boxes are great to carry around. This one is just my size! (And yes, I usually sit with my ankles crossed, just a little quirk!)

I like presents!! And being the center of attention!

Bows are lots of fun too.

Especially on top of my head!

Do you like my hat?

Oh, this is a big box!

What could be inside?

I don't know, but it is sure fun to crawl on top of boxes!

Oh, its my first baby doll!!!

Me and my first baby doll! (And she is even dressed in purple!)

And what is that big thing? It's bigger than I am!

A sandbox? I'm not sure what that is, but this is fun to crawl around in!

What are you all looking at?

Well, if all of this is what birthdays are all about, can I have anther one in a few weeks? This was fun!

It's my party...

and I'll sleep if I want to. Yes, I slept through the first 30 minutes of my party. Daddy put me down after church, but I knew something was going on and I was afraid of missing it, so I didn't want to go to sleep. Finally, after about 45 minutes, I gave in to the tiredness and fell asleep. But since I was sleeping so well, I didn't even notice that 30 some people showed up at my house for my birthday party! (Yes Daddy, I really can sleep though quite a bit of noise!)

Once I finally woke up, Daddy got me dressed in my birthday outfit that Grandma made, and I joined everyone. I even got to eat birthday party food...hamburger, slice of cheese, watermelon (which I'm not a fan of, by the way) and goldfish crackers! It was hard to eat, because so much was going on around me!

Then it was time for cake. But I wasn't too sure about it. I hadn't noticed earlier (because I was still half asleep) that there were strange things tied to my chair, and I was done eating, but Mommy made me get back into my chair. Then she set this big tray down in front of me, but it didn't look like anything I'm supposed to eat. I didn't know what was going on.

Then Mommy put a candle on the tray, lit it, and everyone came into the room and started singing to me!! I'm not sure what the song was, but I had fun looking around the room at everyone! Mommy and Daddy blew out the candle. (I guess I was supposed to, but I haven't really figured out blowing that well yet.)

And here is my Lady Bug cake. (I'm still the cutest Bug in this house! Yes, for those who don't know, Mommy and Daddy nicknamed me Bug.)

Since everyone else wanted a piece of cake, I got my very own cupcake to eat, while they all shared the Lady Bug cake. I wasn't too sure of the cake at first, and just kept poking at it. Then Mommy put a piece in my mouth!

I quickly decided I like cake, grabbed a big piece, and went for it! I had to "chew" on that chunk for a few minutes (there is only so much a girl can do without teeth.)

Then I had to make sure it all stayed in my mouth.

I ate almost the whole cupcake, plus Mommy gave me a little bit of ice cream! Wow, I like birthday parties! When can I have another one?

Friday, what a day!

I woke up this morning to find that Grandma was here!! What a great surprise! I had such a good time with her this morning, that I crashed hard on my morning nap...
Well, after a nice nap, a bit to eat, and a little play time, Mommy packed me up in the car and said that we were going to get Grandpa at the airport. Well, I was so excited, that I didn't sleep at all on the way, even though it was my nap time. Since we were a little early, and I was hungry, we stopped at Wendy's. (No, I didn't get chicken nuggets and fries, Mommy had brought some Gerber.) I was having a lot of fun with my sippy cup of juice!

Grandpa's plane landed, we picked him up, and then headed home. I only lasted about 20 minutes before I fell asleep (hey, I had to get my nap in). So today has been a busy day, but now Grandma and Grandpa are here from AZ, and I bet the spoiling is going to increase!

Play time

So here are a few pictures from my play time last night...

I'm working on my 3-point stance, I just haven't figured out that I'm supposed to use my hand instead of my head!

And I love watching the world go by...

And my friend Pinky likes it too!


The other night, I got a special treat. I got to eat what Mommy and Daddy were eating for dinner, as my dinner, not just a few bits. And it was spaghetti! So they stripped me down to my diaper and my bib and let me go...

Well, as you can see I started out carefully, not fully understanding that it was OK to be messy...

But then I realized that there were tomatoes in the spaghetti! I've had tomatoes before, but they were all chopped up and mixed with other things.

So I tried one...

And it was a big hit! I even ate all of Daddy's, because he doesn't like them!

Then I had to show that I was soooo big!

And I thought it was so funny that I got Mommy and Daddy to raise their arms up in the air in the middle of dinner!

I really enjoyed my first spaghetti dinner! (I always clap when I finish my entree!)

Mommy forgot

So Mommy thought that she had finally got the blog all up to date, when she remembered that she had made a few slide shows, and had never posted them. Well, here they are. The pictures are from a while ago, like Christmas time (as you can tell from the lack of hair), but they are cute none the less, so enjoy!

River walk

Mommy and Daddy have been taking me (and sometimes Lily) to the Riverwalk trail in downtown Danville. We have been walking lots, so Mommy and Daddy can get in shape and Mommy can finally lose the last of the baby weight. I really like riding in my stroller and seeing all the people and animals. We have seen geese, ducks, ducklings, and even few turtles.

This is one of the prettiest places along the trail where we walk, so Mommy wanted a picture of me here. Plus, I look super cute in my hat!

And I am sooo big! (Yes, I do this all the time, just to see who else will do it with me!)
