My First Parade



Mommy and Daddy took me to the local Homecoming Parade today. It was my first parade, and it was pretty fun! The firetrucks with their sirens and horns were pretty loud, but after that part I really enjoyed it! I hope our town in Colorado has parades too, so I can do this again. It sure was fun!

My New Cousin


Auntie Laura finally had her baby last night! I'm so thankful to have my cousin now to grow up with and be best friends with. Her name is Anna Louise and she weighs in at 7lbs 2oz and 19 1/2 inches. I'm already a little jealous that she is smaller than I was when I was born...but at least with babies, chunky is cute. I'm safe for now!

Mommy, daddy and I drove to the city today to meet Anna in the hospital, but I couldn't go in the room because I'm not 12 years old yet (but everyone keeps telling mommy that I'll be there before she knows it). So here's a picture of her with mommy and Auntie Laura. Welcome to the world, Anna! I've got SO much to tell you about and teach you now that you've left your mommy's belly!! Its pretty fun out here in the real world :)

My First Trip to Atlanta




Even though I've been to Denver several times, I've never left Illinois to go anywhere else, until last weekend. Mommy and Daddy and I met up with the Kubik clan in Atlanta, GA for my second cousin Lindsay's wedding. I did awesome on the plane again (slept both ways) and I proved to be a very flexible sleeper as well. Mommy was so nervous I'd have trouble sleeping in the pack n' play at the hotel, but I was a champ and took it all in stride without fussing. (Which brings up the point: why does mommy worry so much about me? I never ever fuss! - well, except when I'm sick)

I wanted to show you a couple pictures - - one of me hanging out in the hotel room, one of the Kubik family all together, and one of me with Uncle Nathan.

It was a really fun trip and I'm excited to go to Atlanta again soon!

Bjorn to Ride





I just got back from a trip to Athens, GA with mommy, daddy and the Kubik clan for a wedding. I got reacquainted with an old friend on this trip, my Baby Bjorn. It hasn't seen a ton of action in the last few months, but I had SO much fun in it that mommy promised me I could spend some time in it every week until I outgrow it.

I'll post more about the fun wedding tomorrow - it was really neat!

(PS - Aren't my uncles cute??)

My Buddy (Daddy) and Me



Mommy has a MASSIVE sinus infection that's really knocked her out. Therefore I've spent the past two days at Nana K's house (noone wants me to get sick again because apparently I was no fun last time I was sick). Today, Nana dropped me back off and I needed some entertainment, so mommy caved in and played a Baby Einstein video to keep me entertained.

Daddy decided to watch with me... I reached out for him and mommy thought it was a "Kodak moment"

Waiting Patiently

Over here at our house, we're waiting anxiously for the arrival of my new cousin. We call her Baby Gibson for now, but I'm just dying to know her real name! (I've asked Aunt Laura to tell me so many times, but she never gives in! I think her secret is safe with me - its not like I can tell anyone. My speech right now is pretty limited to just oohs, ahhhs, grunts and some friendly yelps.)

While we wait, I'll update you on the fact that I'm still LOVING my bathtime. I've recently discovered that if I slap my hands and feet in the water, it makes fun waves and gets mommy and daddy REALLY wet! After my last bath, they had to spend a few minutes mopping up the water all over the floor - haha.

Here's a video of me in the bath last week: Splish Splash

Gymboree



My baby friend Mara and her mommy went to Gymboree in Arizona and had alot of fun, so mommy and daddy decided to take me. It was SO much fun. I giggled my head off and played so many cool games. Hopefully I'll be going again soon!

Baby Blues

When people see me with my mommy, they ask her where I get my blue eyes from. As you can see, I get them from my adoring daddy. Thanks dad!

My Uncle Nathan got engaged this weekend! Mommy, Daddy and me are all so excited for him and Sonya :) I'm already excited for their wedding...any occasion for me to get all dressed up is great with me. I love you, Uncle Nathan!

Mommy took me to get portraits done a couple weeks ago. Here's a sampling.

Poopin'

I'm can't believe mommy is posting this picture of me. Only 7 months old, and she's already embarrassing me. Oh Lord.

Sitting Up


As my 7 month birthday approaches, I've hit a big milestone. I can now sit up all by myself. I was perhaps a little late in learning how to do this, but I love being on my tummy so much that I haven't had much interest in learning how to sit. But now I've got it mastered.

I Love Long Weekends




Long weekends are the best! I had sooo much fun this weekend hanging out with mommy and daddy. We hit up a couple different parks in the area this weekend, and I had a blast! It was fun to swing on mommy or daddy's lap, but the most fun was when I got to swing by myself. I giggled my little head off. So did mommy and daddy.

PS - I'm slowly but surely feeling better. I still have a stuffy nose, but I'm not as grumpy as before. Lets hope I'm feeling perfect again within a few days.

Foodie


I'm starting to take after daddy - I'm really enjoying food! Here I am after mommy fed me some oatmeal. I've also tried peaches and sweet potatoes and loved them both. Next week mommy is going to try a green veggie (peas or green beans) - then we'll know how picky I really am!
