Daddy's Little Girl

Daddy is out of town for work this week, so I'll just take a minute to reflect on how I miss him and how much of a daddy's girl I am. Whenever he's around, I smile at him, and we play this super fun game where we sing and coo to each other. I don't do it for anyone but daddy. I even overheard daddy telling mommy the other day that he doesn't think he'll ever be able to say "no" to me. Fantastic news! I plan to use that information wisely in my teenage years.

I miss daddy, and send him virtual slobbery kisses all the way to California.

Camera Happy

Mommy just posted my 4-5 month pictures on Snapfish. She's been lazy lately emailing out links, so she thought it would just be easier to link to my photos from my blog. So on the bar to the right, you'll find links to all my pictures. Its amazing how much I've changed since I was born!!

Me and My Manny (and my Auntie)

Here's a picture of me with Aunt Maggie and Uncle Andrew (a.k.a. my Manny) from this weekend. I had so much fun with them!

Here I am yesterday when Aunt Maggie let me stand for the first time. It was a new position for me, but I liked it! Mommy called me a beanpole and told me not to get too much practice - she wants me immobile for as long as possible!

Tennis, anyone?

This weekend I watched mommy, daddy, Nana K and Papa J play in a big tennis tournament. It was so much fun! Aunt Maggie and Uncle Andrew came in town from Colorado to babysit me while mommy and daddy played all day - it sure was fun! Aunt Mags looks alot like mommy so I smile and giggle at her constantly. I overheard the women at the tournament saying that my uncle Andrew was my "manny" - what does that mean?

Anyway here I am in my darling tennis outfit that Nana K bought me - - am I cute or what?

Does this look comfortable to you?

Mommy found me in this position after I fell asleep last night. She thinks it looks uncomfortable but I actually prefer to sleep this way. I get all stretched out - it helps me grow taller. That's why I'm almost off the charts!

When Daddy's Away....

...the girls will play! Daddy is gone all week this week in New York City for work, so mommy and I are having girl time all week. We miss him a ton, but we're doing our best to enjoy our mommy-daughter bonding time. I see shopping in my near future.....

Baby Einstein Overload

I can honestly say that Baby Einstein is a big part of my life. I play under my Baby Einstein playgym, listen to my Baby Einstein CD when we're in the car (mommy swears by it to keep me quiet and happy), and I even have some Baby Einstein toys. Today mommy introduced me to some new soft blocks and I had sooo much fun eating them and kicking them. THEN she had to go ruin everything by taking out the camera and trying to get a picture of me having fun. Ugg...
Needless to say, I went into "Baby Einstein overload" (its a medical condition... I've talked to my other baby friends and they get it too). It was pretty stressful, but mommy quickly put the camera down and cuddled me, and that made everything better. Sometimes it's hard being a baby.

My Dedication

Today Nana K and Papa J hosted my dedication at their house. It was so much fun. I had many family members there to see it, and of course all of mommy and daddy's best friends came too. It was pretty hot outside but I loved sitting in daddy's lap for the ceremony, which Tim and Anne Evans presided over. The best part was when I made a MASSIVE poopie right in the middle of the ceremony. It made everyone laugh and it was quite stinky, which mommy and daddy didn't appreciate. I wore a Christening gown that has now been worn for 4 generations in my family... now it will get passed off to my cousin Baby Gibson for her Christening. It was really a wonderful day - I hope I'll remember it forever, but if not, I know I can look back on the pictures and video that were taken (thanks Auntie Kate and Uncle Matt!)

My Latest Accomplishment

Last weekend when mommy was drinking some water, I reached for the cup with both hands and this time she finally let me try some water. Somehow I knew EXACTLY what to do! Mommy and daddy were so impressed....I just keep showing them new tricks every day. I overheard them whispering that I was the perfect baby - - I can't argue with that!

Eating Faces - Video Evidence

This evening daddy took some videos of me eating mommy's face. They think that everyone is going to laugh as hard as they did when they see it.

Check it out! I love to eat mom

Sucking on my Toes

Did I say before that hanging in my swing is my favorite activity? I'm sooo over that (well, not really), but I do have a new skill that is now my #1 favorite thing to do - sucking on my toes! I mostly like to do it when I'm getting my diaper changed because my pesky clothes don't have to get in the way, but I'll still do it with clothes on. Mommy took a video of me doing it last night after my bath but I'm naked so its not appropriate for public viewing...but mommy told me today she's going to catch me doing this with clothes on so she can post a video. Why do her and daddy laugh so hard when I do this? My big toe is just like having another thumb, so I put it in there and suck away for a few minutes. What's the big deal?

Happy 4th of July!

Eating Faces

Lately I've discovered how much fun it is to try to eat people's faces. I especially like to gnaw on mommy. It's hard to tell, but in this picture I've actually got my tongue almost all the way up mommy's nose. The best part is that her face is covered with my slobber when I'm done. Mommy's thought about trying Arbonne facial products, but I told her that my saliva is the best thing she can do for her skin! Its all natural!


In the last week, I've discovered my voice, and I actually quite like it. My favorite times to sing are when I'm in my swing and when I'm getting my diaper changed.

Mommy and daddy brought out the videocamera once again to record my voice. They told me my aunts and uncles and grandparents would want to hear me perform - - so I gave it my all.

Here goes.... Future American Idol

We Stayed Home

We stayed home and didn't go to Door County, which was a bummer, but I learned so many new skills this weekend. Tonight after my bath, I showed mommy and daddy something I've been working on secretly without them knowing - I can now roll to my left side (used to do only right) and also I can roll over from my belly to back. I've been practicing in my crib so mommy had no idea I could do it.

I also was showing off my flexibility tonight and got a good look at my toes and thought they looked super yummy, so I tried to eat them. They tasted okay - not as good as mommy's milk, but better than formula, which I feel so-so about.

They took some videos of me - check them out!


Yummy toes

My Favorite Activity

My favorite thing to do is sit in my swing. When I'm swinging, I love to kick and make tons off noises. Its also the perfect break for mom when she needs to cook or get some work done.
