Cyclone head

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

My Nana and Grandpa had a tornado in Massapequa this week. My hair goes in a little tornado swirl pattern on the top of my head. Well, it isn’t much hair, but you can see the swirl. Mommy loves to kiss my head and rub my hair, while she calls me her little coconut head.

Sitting pretty

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

After doing the laundry, Mommy needed to put me down somewhere while she put away my clothes. She thought she’d try sitting me on the futon in my room, which is where she nurses me before naps and beddy time.

Visited Daddy at work, typed out a post

Here is the post I typed myself on his keyboard:

Mommy played guitar, then I ate in the high chair

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

Mommy practiced her guitar while I sat and listened.

Since I am now starting to eat solid food, Daddy put my high chair together. It is comfy and has fun things on it. I had my second meal from a spoon, and I liked it.

Hangin’ around, eatin’ some rice flakes

Saturday, August 26th, 2006

I spent the morning rolling around on my mat, and Daddy took a bunch of videos: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Then, the afternoon brought an entirely new adventure; Mommy and Daddy mixed some baby rice cereal with Mommy’s milk. My first solid food! I liked eating off the spoon so much I tried to eat the spoon.

Day 2 at Martin and Carol’s house

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

I slept well in the couch-crib, but woke up quite early. So Mommy took me into the big bed. When Daddy got up, he took another video of me, including a little foofy I made. Then I put on my little ruffle pants outfit. I took a long nap, and when I woke up, Mommy took some pictures of me in the couch-crib. As you can see, my first weekend away was loads of fun!

Overnight trip in CT, more video

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

This weekend, we stayed with Aunt Carol & Uncle Martin at their beautiful vacation home in Sherman, CT. Carol went down to the pool and said the water was warm. Here are pictures of Daddy and me; I’m posing for animal crackers, as usual. Then Daddy held me while I played in the pool, and I splashed my feet. Auntie Karin was staying over with us, and she helped me play in the pool, too. Daddy got the video camera, then came down to the pool while Karin was splashing with me. Then Mommy splashed with me. When I got tired of splashing, I sat on Mommy’s lap. I got to stand on Mommy’s lap, and she rubbed my head and kissed on me. Karin took over the video camera while Daddy joined Mommy and me, and you can see that he knocked a rock loose next to the pool (oops). Then Karin took more video of us, including Martin, but then she went off and took video of the scenery. Eventually, Karin came back to Mommy, Daddy and me.

After fun at the pool, Mommy and I played with the piano, and then we went upstairs so Mommy could change my clothes. She put me in a comfy onesie for the evening. We came back downstairs and Martin snugged me, but Mommy had the camera on the wrong setting, so we came out fuzzy. Martin showed me how to play the piano, and even how to play it with my feet. It was then my beddy time, so I went to sleep in the couch-crib (Daddy used the night video feature in the dark). Mommy and Daddy stayed at the house with me, but Martin, Carol and Karin all put on togas and went out to a toga party at a neighbor’s house. All night, it was raining hard outside, and Mommy enjoyed the lovely sound of the rain falling on the trees.

First digitized video

Friday, August 18th, 2006

Daddy was testing a new video camera today. I’m the star. This video file was originally very big, but we converted it to real video to make it smaller.  If you don’t have Real Video, try the QuickTime file.

Went to see both my aunties today, Kerren and Karin

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

I like to visit family and friends on the weekends. Today, I started the day playing on Mommy’s bed, and then we went out to L.I. It was a special day, because I got so see both my aunties, Kerren and Karin. We had a BBQ at Aunt Kerren’s house and took lots of pictures. Uncle Herb was there, and so was Mommy’s friend Bonnie, who has a new, red convertible car.

Toes are yummy

Thursday, August 10th, 2006

I recently discovered that I’m quite flexible and can munch on my toes. For some reason, I find them yummy.

Love my new stroller

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

I am trying out a new stoller today. I get to face forward. Whee!

Nahasses in NJ

Saturday, August 5th, 2006

We went to Clifton, NJ to visit Mommy and Daddy’s friends Sonja and David and their girls Eva and Sophia. Sophia is now a year and a half, and Eva will be four in September.

Before we left for the trip, I got to napping quite late, and only slept for 1/2 hour by the time we had to go. So, I didn’t get much beauty sleep. I was tired a lot of the day, but I wouldn’t let myself nap (except for 1/2 hour when the other kids took a nap) because everything was too exciting. I loved watching Eva and Sophia playing with all their toys, so I was in a good mood anyway. I even played with their little guitar, and Mommy thought it was very cool that I could use my fingers that way.

Mommy took a bunch of pictures of everyone. She had fun trying to get good shots of the kids on the move. I am not too mobile yet, so I usually sat still and gave pretty smiles.
