Fashion sense

I got a big box of new threads, highlighted by these tasty cowgirl boots. Hooray!

Camping with kids

Day 3 of our camping trip. Dirty diaper or no dirty diaper, we all were smelling pretty funky.

Campfire girls

Day 2 of our trip to Fall River. I loved my nature walk! Of course Mommy did all the walking. And hiking. And climbing. And carrying me.

Squeeky clean

I'm getting ready for a couple of days of insect repellent, sunscreen and campfire smoke, so I have to get good and cleaned up before my first big camping trip.

Who's driving?

I'm taking the wheel. Casey yelled shotgun. Remember: driver = DJ.

Browsing for a good book for me just means rolling around on the floor until I find one.

Making new friends

I made a new friend today. She made me laugh and smile. Turns out she's kinda famous!

Raindrops Keep Falling on my (bald) Head

It's been so dry in Wichita this spring, you'd think the sky has been wearing a big diaper. We had a little rain tonight, so I got to go outside and feel it on my little bald head.

Face time

Baby stink eye, war face, poop face, bitter beer face... Call it what you will, but my repertoire of facial expressions is growing, and this is one has become quite common lately.

Birthday Boy

Westley's birthday party was awesome! I already have my eye on some of his toys. He's so good at sharing with me.

All about baby girls

Practically everyone came to see me when I was a newborn, so tonight it was my turn to go and visit a brand new baby. Baby Ember has more hair than I do!

Ready, Set...

I'm not crawling yet, but I'll get up on my hands and knees and rock back and forth. In other words, I'm revving up my engine. 
Look out.

Middle of the week

Whether it's the day after Tuesday or the day before Thursday, I just keep smiling!

Looks like Daddy needs to lower the crib mattress pretty soon.

Translation: I'm hungry

I haven't learned how to say "I'm hungry" yet, so I try and get the point across by opening wide. 
Really wide.

May I have a drink of water?

I'm giving this whole drinking-out-of-a-glass thing a try.

Second verse, same as the first

Sometimes you feel like a nap.
Sometimes you don't.
Babies should take naps.
Helen won't.

Supporting the arts

I visited a colorful place today. Those decorative painters are amazing!

Might as well jump

One of my favorite things to do at daycare is take a spin in the jump seat. I'm pretty good at it, too.

Morning calisthenics

I like to start the day out right with a little exercise. Baby pushups (aka Tummy Time) really get me moving.

Fever in, fever out

And just like that, I'm back to 100% normal. 100% fun!

Nothin' But a Good Time

I helped Daddy with some work today and he wore a do-rag like this. Later, I tried it on and he said I looked like a bald, baby-faced version of this guy

Happy Mother's Day!

So this is how we spent our very first Mother's Day (not counting last year when I was still in Mommy's tummy). Better to be at a clinic checking out a high fever than a hospital ER, am I right?

Another Saturday in the park

I went to the park again today, only this time Mommy packed me a picnic lunch: whirled peas and mashed prunes. Mmm, my favorites!

One size fits all

Even though I've figured out how to pull them off, I still like hats, even Daddy's grown-up hat.

Making music

I'm sure I could make some sweet music with these eight notes, but not when I keep trying to eat the drumstick instead of playing with it. 

It's Wednesday

Typical day: eating, sleeping, playing, pooping. Eating again. Repeat.

Words on words

Mommy didn't have her AP Style Guide handy so my bedtime story was a great book by Professor Anderson.

Crusin' and Schmoozin'

I turned 8 months old today and marked the occasion with a little stroll along the river. I sure do fill out a stroller way better than I did 8 months ago

Water baby

I made my first trip to the swimming pool today and it was so much fun!

What a nice day with beautiful weather--perfect for swinging and strolling.
