Trip to visit the Bensons

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

This morning, I started off with some tummy time, and I got to see myself in the mirror that is part of my activity mat. Then we went on a trip to see some other kids. Mommy’s friend Jennifer just had another baby, so it was a good time to visit their family. Mommy took pictures of me in the car seat carrier, and Daddy took pictures of Mommy and me, at the Suffern train station. We spent the day with Jennifer, Andrew, Miriasa, Gavrie, and Ita, and took lots of pictures there. On the walk back home from the subway, I wanted Mommy to hold me, so she put me in the Baby Bijorn carrier that our neighbor Melissa gave to us.

Dance Dance Dance with Daddy; Pet Pet Pet the Kitty

Teething is a bummer, so Daddy agreed to dance with me. The last picture is out of focus because we were dancing away. Then, Mommy had her first guitar lesson with a man named Tal. He came to the house, and Daddy and I watched Mommy take her lesson. She wants to learn how to play children’s songs for me, and also play Rock and Roll. Mommy, Daddy and I then headed out to a few music stores, because she needed some guitar books, picks and new strings for her jumbo acoustic Epiphone. After we got home, I played with my kitties. James is the one who lets me pet him the most.

Hanging on

I like to hang on while I go swingie swingie.

Grandpa Bernie’s birthday party

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006

Daddy came home early this morning, and then we went out by train to Massapequa to visit with Nana Sonja, Grandpa Bernie and Auntie Karin. We had lots of fun. I even made up a clever little game called knock over the cup and the onion salt. Before we left, I got antsy, so Auntie Karin and Daddy entertained me by dancing and singing. When we got back to Manhattan, I was in a good mood and had some more fun with my pink puppy.

A day with Grandpa Lou and Granny Barbara

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

Daddy was in Denver on a business trip, so Mommy and I took a long train ride out to Aunt Kerren’s house for a BBQ. When we got to the train station in Stony Brook, Aunt Kerren, Uncle Herbie, Grandpa Lou and Granny Barbara were waiting there to meet us. We couldn’t go outside because it was rainy most of the day, but we had a fun time hanging out in the living room and on Aunt Kerren’s bed. I don’t know why, but I love Aunt Kerren’s bed — maybe it is because of the psychadelic blanket, which is cool and soft. Anyway, Aunt Kerren made yummy food, and Uncle Herbie helped her by going out to cook it on the barbeque. We took lots of pictures, of course! Grandpa Lou and Granny Barbara brought me a pink puppy that makes a barky noise, and I love it. They also gave me a soft dolly and some clothes that I can have later. GP Lou and G Babs emailed these pictures and videos, which are really funny and cute! On the train ride home, I played with my puppy.

Good place for a cat nap

Mommy was pleasantly surprised that I nodded off without her nursing me, rocking me, or strolling me, so she took these pictures while I was sleeping.

Swing time

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

It was hot today, so we stayed inside most of the day. After it cooled off a little, Mommy and Daddy decided to take me to the Park. Mommy wanted to show Daddy how I like to go in the bucket swing. Here I am with my bunny on the way to Central Park. When we got to the 68th Street Playground, Mommy put me in the bucket swing. As we left the Park, I got tired, so Daddy made me feel better because he carried me.
