The baby and the ballot

Pay no attention to the sticker as I didn't get to vote today (too young). However, I'm ready for the next election: already have my photo ID.

Spoonful of awesomeness

Is this not the best eating utensil technique you've ever seen?

Nighty-night specialist

I do a lot of things well, but sleeping is still one of my specialties. I can crank out an 11 or 12 hour night like a champion.

Race car driver

This is my plasma car. Otherwise known as my "Look out! Helen has wheels and she's not afraid to use 'em!" car.

Passing the test(s)

I got a hearing, vision, development and speech evaluation today and that big engine between my ears appears to be running perfectly.

It snot right!

Someday, when I'm older, I'm gonna shave dad's eyebrows off while he's sleeping for taking this picture.
In other news, I'm feeling a little better today, but not great.

Under quarantine

 I've got a light fever, my nose is a snot factory and I don't even wanna talk about what's in my diaper. Here's a hint: this was my fourth change of clothes for the day.

X-Ray vision

I'm feeling really, really crummy today and Dr. Soltz decided he needed a picture of my lungs so he could help me get better. Chest x-rays for babies are no fun at all.

Playing in the yard

Going to the park is great but sometimes playing in the backyard is just as much fun.

My first musical instrument

I kinda hoped Mom would get me a drum since I've obviously got rhythm but she got me this recorder instead.

I laugh in the face of danger

I figured out how to do this tonight. Dad looked stressed.

Filling big shoes

I tried on Dad's shoes tonight and he told me that he used to wear his dad's shoes when he was little. I'm glad he doesn't wear boots like grandpa, or I might not have been able to get out.

Be My Valentine

I got this sweet Valentine from Miss Morgan and Miss Heather at school today.

The eyes have it

Beautiful blue eyes that turn into red eyes overnight can only mean one thing, the doctor said: pinkeye!

It's a baby girl!

Baby Eleanor stopped by to pay me a visit, and while she was here she turned exactly one month old. Does anyone remember when I turned one month old?

Food hat night

It's Thursday night, so that means it's "dinner on your head!" night. Last week I tried on a bread hat, tonight was pineapple! Dad said "Helen, your food goes in your mouth, not on your head," whatever that means.

It's more like sculpture than a toy

I'm finally big enough to play with this contemporary rocking horse. Hand-crafted by a guy who can build just about anything.

Hats off to you

Much happier ride on the way home tonight. Spent valuable time taking my hat on and off.

Story time

Story time used to mean that I flipped though the pages of my books as fast as I could, but now I like to slow down and hear the words. Makes me sleepy.

Dinner for two

Russell brought me delicious pizza when I was a little baby. I returned the favor by sharing my dinner tonight.

Boxes & drawers everywhere...

...but I couldn't get a single one of them open to see what was inside.

Mommy and me

Now this was a tricky shot: Mommy's left hand was holding the camera and her right hand was holding me on her back.

Taste in fashion

My taste in hats is changing. Today it seems to taste like whole wheat bread.

Folding and unfolding

Next on the list of things Mommy wants me to learn: how to refold the washcloths that I unfolded after she spent time folding them.

Spent an evening with the Loving family again. They always show me a good time.
