Fun in the fountain

Who cares what they serve at a fancy restaurant as long as I can play with the decorations.

Keeping an eye out

Does Mommy needs eyes in the back of her head? Not with this new clip-on mirror that keeps me in her sight as we're driving along.

Shameless self-promotion

There was a big event at Wichita State today. Mommy brought me back a t-shirt. Turns out there's a website of the same name.

Clear a path

It's been a week since I've been strutting my stuff on two wheels. Tonight I took my show out to the sidewalk.

Birthday Boy

Celebrated Julian's first birthday today and demonstrated that we're both really good at chewing on our hands. Wonder who we got that trait from?

Rice rice baby

My guts have been a little out-of-sorts the past few days so I'm on the BRAT (bananas, rice, applesauce and toast) diet. It's been a long time since I've had rice cereal on a regular basis.

I'm your puppet

Best way to delay an early bedtime? Ask Mommy to stage an impromptu puppet show.

Tear it up

My super-baby-power strength was no match for a foam hat.

Paws and Praise

I love doggies and kitties so the one time a year they allow dogs and cats at church, I'm not going to miss out on seeing my four-legged friends.

Breakfast of Champions

Don't worry, Mommy. I can get my breakfast all by myself.

Let's get clean

My first baths were in the sink and then I moved up to the baby tub. Now that I'm a year, it's the big bathtub for me all the time, every time.

See the little pink and purple cake in the lower lefthand corner? That's mine!

Hangin' loosey goosey

I met Mother Goose tonight and we both agree on one thing: We're glad Mother Nature finally delivered some cool weather.

The Helen and The Sickle

Hooray for public art! This Wichita landmark is just down the street from Dad's and it's called "Dreamers Awake" by famed Wichita native Tom Otterness.

Double the fun

Auntie Sue, who went to high school with Mommy, has beautiful twin girls.
Wow, what would a world with twin Helens be like?

Now you see me

I've got a new favorite game: pulling on the blinds for french doors and using them to play peek-a-boo with Mommy.

Making the rounds

Went to the doctor for my one-year checkup today. I decided to go on a little tour of the offices. I eventually found the room where they give shots. Whoops.

Havin' a bad day

The last two weeks have been eventful, to say the least. Besides turning 1, I've had some big changes at daycare and I've been feeling a little under the weather lately. In addition, I've trying to make the transition from two naps a day to one. Evidence suggests I still need two naps a day.

Head of the class

Had my first day of school in the new toddler room today. The room has tons of toys and all my old pals from the infant room.

A super fly ride

Grandma and Grandpa got me a shiny new set of wheels for my birthday. Riding in a red wagon is the best way to travel around the neighborhood.

A couple of Virgos

Aunt Aerica's birthday is the day before mine so we celebrated together with a doll cake made by Grandma. I'm one year old now and Aunt Aerica is, well, the candles on the cake give her age away.

One trip around the sun

It seems like just yesterday when I came into the world with a scream, but it's already been a year. Tomorrow may be my first birthday, but today this blog has delivered on its promise of 365 pictures. 

What a joy it's been. The best part was knowing how many of you came to see my pictures everyday and got a laugh or a smile from it. 

Don't worry, I guess I've become too popular for "Helen of Wichita" to simply come to an end. So if you've enjoyed watching me grow up, you'll still be able to come here and have a peek.
