That's Entertainment!

Colorful socks can only mean one thing: Puppet show!

Rock Chalk, Baby Jayhawk!

We all know where Daddy's allegiances lie, and we also know of the team we don't speak of. But Mommy's a Jayhawk and with March Madness about to start, it's time to bust out the crimson and blue. 

In other news, this is the 183 entry on this blog, meaning we've crossed the halfway point. Hooray for all my loyal readers!

Breakfast of Champions

Auntie Em hadn't seen me in a while so she came over this morning for quality time with me. She and Mommy ate tasty pancakes. I had the usual.

HHH (Holding Head High)

Remember when I couldn't hardly hold my head up at all? Keeping my head up for more than a few seconds was a big deal back then. Tummy time is waaayyy better now that I can.

No nap? Yeah, that's a problem

Yesterday wasn't a good nap day so I'm one sleepy baby. In fact, it's 8 a.m. and I'm still in bed.

No nap? No problem

How is it I can still manage a million-dollar smile when I've spent the day taking what amounts to just a couple of 10-cent naps?

Attention grabber

I wasn't much in the mood to take a nap this evening. Too many toys to plays with. Too many things to grab. Too many things to learn.

Infant obstacle course

Trying to crawl up on Daddy is a great way to exercise and strengthen my legs. I'll be mobile before you know it.

Just a Swingin'

"Little Helen she's as pretty as the angels when they sing.
I can't believe she's out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just a swingin' (swingin')
Just a swingin' (swing-iiiiin')"

So what's this baby stuff all about?

Auntie Melissa is going to have a baby soon so she came over to check out my accoutrements. And she's going to have a girl, too, so I had to show her what baby girls are all about.

Auntie Barb came over for a visit after work. We sat on the back porch because it was so nice outside today--a record high, in fact.

Going green

I'm well into three food groups now. Dairy (from Mommy, not cows), whole grains and fruits and vegetables. Today I took on green beans for the first time and below is the video to prove it.
Up next: Meat. (though not anytime soon)

All snuggled up in my stroller while taking a cruise along the river. It's good to be the baby.

B is for Bob, and C is for Cute

Today's lessons: The letter "B", music appreciation and a little cultural enrichment.

Intrepid explorers

The weather today was finally nice enough for a little jaunt outside. The whole week is actually shaping up to be almost spring-like. Daddy just attaches me like a piece of velcro and off we go!

Miss Matched

Mommy did this once before, dressing me up in contrasting colors and patterns. And no, I didn't leave the house dressed like this.

Veggies versus outerwear

So here's what I've tried eating so far: rice cereal, oatmeal, carrots and my bib. I think the bib is winning out. Carrots? Not so much.

I'll be famous soon

I'm sure the folks at Gerber will be calling any day now.

It's easy being me

I'm a baby who has no problem with the following things: Baths, bedtimes, car seats and fingernail trims.  Even diaper changes bring a smile to my face. 
Yup. I'm awesome.

Open mouth, insert... anything

I'm entering that stage where pretty much anything looks like it would be just great if I stuck it in my mouth. Daddy's wide-angle camera lens looks particularly tasty at the moment.

Will it grow if I add water?

It's about as tall as a stand of winter wheat right now, but by summer I'm hopeful I'll have a full crop of hair.

Helen & Hesston both start with h

I met a Hesston Swather today, Keith, who went to high school with Mommy. He works at Agco and guess what they build there--swathers!

V is for vintage

Oooo, a 1970s-era leisure suit complete with a scalloped mock turtleneck and made of 100% polyester. Dy-no-mite!

It's a jungle out there

So much to see and do. Taking it all in really wears me out.

Mmm mmm good

I'm getting better at this eating solid foods thing. Only about half ends up everywhere else but in my tummy.

Gosh, look at it snow! Thank goodness I have the perfect sled for this kind of weather.
