Mommy, Daddy & ME!






Time Outside!


Hi there! I'm getting ready to go outside and play!!

Look!! It's a bird!!!


I'm picking the grass for Daddy.

Here's a big smile to all my family and friends!

I laugh a lot!



Something sure was funny!

Money goes in the Piggy Bank!


Gammy & PawPaw came to visit me yesterday - they got me this really cute new butterfly chair - but instead of sitting in it, I push it around.

I also emptied out Gammy coin purse for my piggy bank. Poor Gammy - I left her with a few pennies.

Now time to fill up my piggy bank...

Girlfriends


This past Sunday - I got to spend some time with one of the coolest chicks I know, Taylor. We greeted each other with hugs! (well... Taylor hugged me)

Then we shared some snacks....and had a staring contest...

Then we played with toys and socialized with our family...

And sadly, our time ended too quickly...so we gave hugs and kisses until next time!

Today is gonna be Hot!!


Just spending some morning playtime in my room! Today it's supposed to get up to 80 degrees!! Daddy better remember to lather me up with sunscreen!

Play Ball!!


Hanging outside while Daddy grills.

Wanna play ball anyone? Daddy's been teaching me how to throw it before the dogs grab it out of my hand!

Hanging out with my Dogs



Hi Family and Friends! Just wanted to let everyone know how I've been doing since I got my ear tubes. I have been walking around and talking a lot more now! My ears feel great! With the warmer weather approaching - Mommy, Daddy and Aunt Heather have been playing with me outdoors.
Above you'll see I'm having breakfast, a big ol yummy Blueberry muffin! That's our Dogs Dixie and Sammy you see in the other pictures. Love you all and miss you!

A Day in the life of...ME!


For those of you who don't know - now I spend my days at home with my favorite aunt - AUNT HEATHER! No more day care! Yippee! So to begin our days - Mommy feeds me breakfast - then she heads off to work. Next Aunt Heather and I sing songs, read books, play games, walk around the house, and play my piano - I'm a lot to keep up with, but my Aunt Heather does a great job!

Then it's time for lunch - Mommy makes a special menu for me for the week and prepares each thing the night before - Aunt Heather serves it up and we have lunch together. Here I am having some chicken...
Then it's time for my nap - I usually squeeze in a 1 and a half hour nap then I'm up and ready for snack time!
Then we play until Mommy gets home.

I'm clearly the center of attention because every evening when everyone is home - we play and play and play! It's the greatest. I especially love my books - as I always have - especially one in particular, "Fat Cat" - I'll share it with you sometime.

Also I'm really into dancing - here I am busting a move while everyone laughs. Then I'm off to take my bath (where I spend a great deal of time soaking my parents), get lotioned up, hair brushed, teeth brushed, practice walking, kiss my fish Finny goodnight, read a book, have a swig of water, and around 8:00 every night - I'm asleep!
Really....life just couldn't be better!

This is how I stay busy...


My pink duck from my Nana - I can't make it squeak like Mama and Dada can.

What do you mean Daddy, ofcourse I'm gonna drag all these toys out of here, I only wanna play with the ones on the bottom.

Ear Tube Time!!


A quick prayer before my surgery! I can't wait to have this fluid outta my ears!!

I get anesthesia too!!!

I really enjoyed climbing all over the hospital bed while I waited for my surgery to begin. I didn't cry once. I quietly went to the nurse, they gave me anesthesia, inserted the tubes, and in 9 minutes I was back in my Mama's arms! Now Dr. Bates says to keep an eye out for fluid, but I should be feeling better by tomorrow. I sure do look funny with these cotton balls hanging out of my ears. I'm getting lots of rest today as I stay at home with Daddy.

Some updates about Me!

Hi Family and Friends,
Springtime is here! Sorry we have been so busy lately that we haven't been keeping in touch like we should. I miss you all so much!!!!

As many of you know, I have had quite a time with ear aches, so Monday morning at 7:30, I will be having surgery on my ears. During this surgery, small tubes called tympanostomy tubes will be placed in my eardrums to ventilate the area behind my eardrum and keep the pressure equalized. Earaches are definetly NO FUN! I'm going to feel so much better soon!

Other than that, I'm my usual happy little self. I'm saying lots of new words now! Here are some I say often: mama, dada, bad, dog, bye bye, baby. Mommy & Daddy work on sign language with me too, I guess they just want me to be really smart. I absolutely love books, Mommy already got me my first library card!

Mommy has had an interview at the hospital to work the weekend night shift so she can stay home with me!! So, everyone please say your prayers, because that would be a dream come true to stay home and learn and play with my mama!

In the morning, I'm going to my first Kindermusik - it's for toddlers and kids to listen, play and dance to music - I'm sure my Mama will post lots of pictures!

Oh and let me just say a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to cousin Taylor who just celebrated her 1st birthday yesterday!! See how cute she is below..

Until next time, God Bless you all!
More pictures coming soon!
