Little Lebowski Urban Achiever

I've finally grown into this "Big Lebowski" onesie Daddy bought me a few months ago, and I gotta say.. It really tied the room outfit together.

Formal portrait

I had my first school portrait taken today and I brought my smiles. Looks like some lucky people are going to get a little something in the mail soon.

Daddy's little helper

I went to the hardware store with Daddy today. Just doing what I can to help.

Turn it up!

With all the instruments surrounding me, I'm bound to be a musical talent someday.

Maxin' and relaxin'

A cold and rainy Saturday? No problem. We'll stay inside where it's nice and warm and just veg out a little.

Tickle the ivories

Most of the time, when we sit at the piano, Mommy and I sing together and she plays the piano for both of us. Today I made my first foray into piano playing.

Hey, anyone seen a green cup?

I haven't quite figured out how to stack these cups up yet, but they sure are tasty.

Upward mobility

Big things happening with me. I rolled from front to back in December, but the real challenge is doing it the other way around. I just needed some help from my monkey friend.

Spring, Kansas style

I enjoyed a nice day at the park today, and as you can see, the grass and trees are turning green. But as anyone who lives in Kansas knows, a nice day in March means the wind is blowing 30 mph out of the south. Good thing daddy had a hand on me when this gust game along, or I woulda turned into an 18 pound tumbleweed.

All the world's a stage

Who is this cast of characters? It's the Gridiron crew! I heard them singing while I was dancing along in Mommy's tummy during rehearsals last year.

Breakfast with the fam

Great Grandma Helen never let anyone sit on her kitchen counters. Is a cute baby sitting on the counter okay?

A great uncle

This last trip out to Western Kansas came with a surprise-a visit from my Great Great Uncle Edwin. He's Great Grandpa Doyle's little brother. The blue of his shirt & pants matches the blue in my eyes.

A little leprechaun

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thanks to the luck-o-the-Irish, I'm feeling much better. So glad I wasn't so sick that my face matched my new shirt!

Baby blues

I shed my first real tears today after a 103-degree fever brought me to the doctor's office. Nothing serious, probably a virus, and it's only the second time I've been sick. So far.

Just being neighborly

My neighbor Bill is showing me how high the pile o' money will be after he and Dawn have their big garage sale this weekend. Lots of great deals, but no baby stuff for sale.

Choices, choices

I'm trying to pick out something to wear to daycare tomorrow. I just can't seem to decide.

Wear it with confidence

Sometimes the spoon and my mouth work in perfect harmony. Sometimes... not so much.

More adventures in babysitting

Auntie Angie kept watch over me today and, inspired by the beautiful weather, took a cue from the French Impressionist painters and had me do tummy time en plein air.

Rollin' and strollin'

I gotta say, I really do love rollin' in my 5.0 with my ragtop down so my hair can blow. Takin' the ol' stroller out for a spin never gets old.

Adventures in babysitting

Auntie Pattie and Auntie Barb took care of me this evening. I was on my best behavior, so much so that they offered to babysit me anytime.

Insert clever headline here

Normally a cute caption would go here but I wasn't in the mood to go to sleep (can't tell from the photo, can ya?) so both Mommy and I were up way past our bedtimes and she wasn't feeling so clever.

Daddy's off to go shoot some high school and college basketball for the next 4 days. Maybe I'll sneak into his camera case and go along.

Small, but mighty

Today I had my six-month checkup and I'm happy to report that I'm as healthy as they come. I am, however, a bit disproportionate at the moment. At 17.7 pounds, I'm in the 76th percentile of weight, but only the 29th percentile of height (25 1/4). Time to start stretching out my legs!

Little girls

Aunt Shannon, Mommy's college roommate, came to Wichita. She brought a beautiful little girl with her who could sing, dance and make me laugh!

Leaning Tower of Baby

Mommy used to cheer "Lean to the left, lean to the right. Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight!" I've got the "lean" part down pretty well.

Supported Sitter

I'm getting better at sitting up all by myself but I'm still a little wobbly. Mommy stays close by, ready to steady me in case I starting becoming the Leaning-Tower-of-Pisa baby.

Take your daughter to work day

Daddy realized after picking me up from day care that he forgot his computer at work. Needless to say, I was a huge distraction hit.

Six months of smiles

Today I turned six months old and I can't hardly believe it! It seems everyday I reach a new milestone, but one thing that hasn't changed is this... and this... and this!
