Mama's got a brand new bag

Why do I love this new black bag? It keeps my breakfast, lunch and dinner nice and cool when we travel.

At least it wasn't a pat-down

In an attempt to test whether my lunch was contraband, the TSA guy accidentally spilled it.

I sure like to swing. Always have, always will.

Class of 1993 Reunion

I want to be a Hesston Swather when I grow up, just like these guys!

Hotter than two cats fighting in a wool sock.

We sure picked a good day to go swimming. 111 degrees in Wichita today. My first summer is going to be one that's long remembered in these parts.

Where's my dinner?

Standing up in my highchair AND yelling aloud... not the best way to get food on the table faster but it sure got Mommy's attention.

A new (boy)friend

It took 10 months, but I finally had a play date with Julian today. His dad and my dad have been friends since they were 18 years old.  Julian has tons of cool toys to play with. Can't wait to do it again.

How do you spell relief?

R-o-a-d-t-r-i-p. Well, a real short one anyway. Today was the 30th day this summer it's been over 100 degrees in Wichita (three times above average). A few brief rain showers sprouted up in the area, so Dad and I headed down to Haysville, where we could feel some rain drops and temperatures in the 70's. It sure felt good, but probably a little late to help the corn behind us.

Player piano

I've played the piano lots of times, always while sitting on Mommy's lap. Today was the first day I could tickle the ivories from where I stood.

Not a couch potato

I haven't attempted to climb onto the couch yet, but I'm thinking about it.

Why eat it when you can wear it?

I've got a green bean mustache. It tastes as good as it looks.

Collision course

In addition to a battering ram, my walker functions pretty well as a bumper car. I love running into Mommy's legs when I'm rolling around in it. Every time I do, she bends down and gives me a kiss.

That's SO punk rock!

My hair has come a long way. It's long enough now where I can pull off a pretty convincing Billy Idol.

Time warp

I went on a walk with Dad this morning and we tried out the 1970's look.

Water water everywhere

Drinking out of a glass is nice but sticking my hand in the glass and splashing water around is even better. At least my hands get clean.

A new game

Mommy sets up the blocks and I knock 'em down. Fun times!

Just driving around

No carpet on the floors means the whole house is like a giant racetrack. And I love to go around and around and around.

Gettin' fresh.

Ever since I was a newborn, few things have made me feel better than being fresh and clean after a bath. And don't I look pretty darn cute all wrapped up in my bath towel?

A surprise visit

My Great Aunt Maxine came all the way from Western Kansas to have dinner with me tonight!

Crocodile tears

Since I've figured out how to pull myself up and stand, it means sometimes I fall down. But you can rest assured that I got right back after it and tried again in no time at all.

Slobbering hot

I must have mistaken dad's phone for a cool drink of water. Easy to do when it's so hot outside. 
It actually got to 111 degrees today; a new record and the first time it's gotten that hot in Wichita since 1980. In other news, I think I voided the warranty on dad's phone.

Take a stand

Remember when I needed help standing on my own two feet? No help needed as of this morning. Since Mommy doesn't have the ball-and-chain accessory for my crib, today's the day she's getting out the hex key and lowering my crib mattress so I don't pull myself up only to tumble over the side.

Destruction Junction

I discovered my walker can double as a battering ram. What fun it is to topple over the cereal boxes on the bottom shelf.

And now for my next trick...

I fooled you into thinking I could do it last December, but I needed some more time and practice. Now I can hold my bottle all by myself and drink my milk before bedtime. 
I know... I'm awesome.

Snack time!

Taking a break at daycare to eat some puffs with my peeps is a necessary part of my day. As you can see by the items behind me, I work up quite an appetite.

The best birthday

I had fun celebrating Aunt Laura's birthday with a ride on her shoulders. Giddy-up!

How's my hearing?

Ask my favorite audiologist, Aunt Laura. This tympanogram shows my middle ear status. All is good!

A new friend

Avery and I had fun playing in the backyard. Between her toys and my toys, we kept ourselves pretty well occupied.

Testing out the waters

I had to get cleaned up for a big holiday trip to Texas tomorrow. Things sure have changed in the last 8 months when it comes to bath time.
