Precariously perched

Using a stepstool to reach high places is a good idea. Standing on the top edge to do it? Well, maybe not such a good idea.

I mustache you a question

I found some markers and gave myself a goatee. Good thing they weren't permanent markers.

Dirty laundry

The laundry hamper is just the right size for me to hang out in.

Getting closer to nature

Another beautiful Saturday meant another visit to the zoo. I met a new feathered friend while I was there.

Neat camera trick

I've seen lots of cameras in my day, but the thermal camera Erik brought over was one of the coolest. I could see my fresh handprints on the floor!

Swing time

Whenever January gives you the opportunity to sit out on the porch swing, you take that opportunity.

I put on a display of my dancing skills for a small audience.

Just whistle while you work

I'm pretty good at doing my chores, like cleaning out the dishwasher, as long as my efforts are noticed and put to music, so now the song "Rockin' Robin" has been co-opted and renamed "Helpin' Helen."

Binkie-free zone

For too long, it's been binkie this, binkie that, binkie, binkie, binkie. Now, by passing through my magical doorway, I'm officially a Big Girl and won't use a binkie at naptime or bedtime ever again.

I'm not much of a nap taker these days, but Dad and I both needed one today.

Painting party

I went to a birthday party today where each attendee got to paint a statue. That's my kinda party.

In this corner.... weighing in at 34 and a half pounds... the undisputed featherweight champion of the world... Helen!

Catching up

I stayed up way too late last night. I must have been the cupcake I ate after dinner. I had a lot of sleep to catch up on, so it was an early bedtime tonight.

More fashionable foods

Cupcakes. You can eat them, and you can wear them.

Write this down....

I needed a little help with the "N", but look what I can do!

We're going to the zoo

On a nearly 70-degree day, we took a long-overdue trip to the zoo to have a look around. The Cessna Penguin Cove was my favorite, but I found the woman cleaning the glass to be even more interesting than the penguins themselves.

On top of the world

Nothing better than going down a high slide on a nice day.

Dynamite smile

Some things never change, including my awesome smile!

Showing my artistic talent

Aunt Mackie taught me how to color inside the lines, so I thought I'd show Mommy (who's been around her share of artists who color in AND outside the lines) what I'd learned.

Time flies when you're having fun

It was three years ago this week when I first met Miss Katie. She started taking care of me when I was just four months old, and she can't believe three years have passed so quickly.

Lotsa laughs

The best bedtime stories are the ones that make me laugh out loud.

Just trying to help

Sometimes when you try and help clean up a mess, you end up making a bigger mess.

O Christmas Tree

The Christmas season officially ended with the burning of the Christmas tree. It burned so fast, we didn't even have time to roast a marshmallow.

Free dinner

Got a free dinner at Texas Roadhouse courtesy of Grandpa DuWayne and Grandma Kate. Thanks so much!

New Year's Day par-tay

Part of the festivities at Steve & Hilary's was playing with the table decorations. These fake mustaches were funny!

NYE = Bedtime? What bedtime?

Spent NYE learning to play pool and saying "cheers" whenever people clinked their glasses together, which means I stayed up waaayyyyy past my bedtime.

Kitty adoption service

Auntie Jaime serves as a foster parent for stray kitties until they find a home. This means Auntie Jaime's house is one of my favorite places to visit.

The Christmas that keeps on giving

Auntie Jill came over with more presents tonight. I like this Christmas business.
