Autumnal Equinox

Hi! Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been pretty busy lately. Tomorrow is September 24... which means I am 11 months old. Since my buddy Trey turns 1 on October 4th I am going to the Bear room with him next week. That way we can be together, even though I won't be 1 until later in the month. Just as the seasons are changing, I am changing everyday too!

Mommy and Daddy just love to watch me and laugh at me. I am a pretty silly girl. I am learning to do so much. I started clapping and playing "So Big!" I love to dance and play with my lego blocks. Life is just great! I am getting to try all sorts of new foods, but many are hard to eat with just 2 teeth!! Those darn 4 teeth still haven't come in yet!! I am starting to get sick and tired of this teething stuff... Anyway, I've recently discovered pancakes, cinnamon buns, and spaghetti!!

So much stuff is going on in October... we are going to be busy. I have my 1 year old photo shoot the first weekend in October and then we are going to the Renaissance Faire with Terry and Sarah. Then we have Aunt Dana's baby shower and Amara's birthday party. We also have some fun fall festivals to go to. Then, it's time for my birthday!! I can't wait to open some presents! And I can't wait to eat some cake!

Back to School

Well.. the time has come. Mommy heads back to school for good on Monday. This summer went by too quickly. I wish we had more time to spend at home together. We had a lot of fun though. Mommy read a lot of books to me and I read a lot of books to her. I played with Cooper and Tim and had lots of fun running errands with Mommy.

I turned 10 months old this past Monday. I can't believe I will be a year old soon!! Can't wait for my party... Yummy cake to eat!!! I am so good at crawling now and even take a few steps here and there. I will definitely be walking soon! Mommy bought me a cute pair of sneakers for when I do walk. I am getting in to everything... playing with the cable box, taking wood out of the box on the fire place, splashing in Cooper's water bowl, and playing with the computers. I am busy, busy, busy!!

I have lots of new friends at daycare now. Trey and I are the oldest so we get to do whatever we want to and the little babies just have to sit and watch! We will soon be moving up to the Bear Room. This is where the 1 year olds go. I will miss Miss Trish though. She is my buddy. She may be able to come to Bear Room with us. We will keep our fingers crossed.

I love taking baths and enjoy meeting new people. But I love to just be moving around. And I really LOVE reading all of my books!!! I have 3 teeth coming in on the top. I hope they come soon!!! I am tired of this teething business. I am loving bananas and applesauce right now. Mommy smashes up strawberries and blueberries to add to my applesauce. That makes is super yummy!!

Good bye summer!!!

Where is Summer going???

This summer sure is going by quickly!! It's been quite busy! I started crawling all over the place and never stop moving, so it's been hard to keep up with my blog. My legs are a little bruised from climbing up the step into the kitchen, so I figured I'd take it easy today and blog for a little.

The last weekend in June Mommy and I headed back to Bucks County to meet Liz and Johanna. I had a lot of fun playing in the grass with Johanna and all the rubber duckies her nana decorated the party with! I even snuck 2 home in my diaper bag! Then we headed down to Sarasota to see Grandma and Grand-dad for just about two weeks. I got to go swimming and we went to a great aquarium! I saw lots of fish, sea horses, sharks, manatees, sea turtles, and dolphins! I loved the aquarium!! The best part of our trip was getting to see Great Grandma Griffith a lot. She was not well but it sure made her happy to visit with me! We were all glad that we got to see her because she passed away the day I turned 9 months old... July 24.

It's nice to be home now. Mommy has some meetings and work to do at her new library, so I went back to school to see Miss Trish and my friends for 2 days each week. I love being at school! We have splash days on Wednesdays, which are great!

I had my 9 month check-up on July 23. No shots this time, but I have to go get blood work done. I failed my hearing test, but the doctor said that is because I have tiny ears! They will check again in October. I have 4 teethies up top trying to come through. I sure hope they do soon!! They hurt, A LOT!!!!

Daddy has another week of vacation coming up in August. We are going to go to Zoo America, Chocolate World, and Cabela's. They should all be really fun trips! Talk to y'all soon!

It's Summer!!!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to say I'm glad it's summer! Mommy's last day of school was yesterday so that means it's time for fun!! We're going to hang out here for a few weeks and then visit Grandma and Grand Dad in Florida from July 3-July 13. I can't wait to swim in their pool and in the Gulf of Mexico again!!! Mommy and Daddy celebrated their birthdays this month. It was fun to celebrate with them. I'm starting to scoot along a little bit... not quite crawling yet though. I think that is just around the corner.

In the beginning of June we went to a going away party for Aunt Marchell and Uncle Dan. It was fun to see all of my family. On June 22 I have a play date with all of the Reidenbaugh Babies of the 2008-2009 school year. I am going to play with Ashlyn, Mackenzie, Nicky, and William. I can't wait!!

Mommy got a new job as a school librarian for next year... Yay!!! I'll get to spend some time in her library this summer so she can get some work done. I am also going to go back to my school just for 2 days a week starting in the middle of July. I miss my friends there already so it will be great to see them a little each week until I go back full-time in August. Until next time, be well!!

Marvelous May

Well, another month has come and gone. I am already 7 months old!! My hair is finally starting to grow... that's about the most exciting thing on my end this month. Looking forward to Mommy being done with school so we can hang out more.

I am really enjoying rolling around on the floor and playing with the new toys Mommy bought me a few weeks ago. Cooper likes to try to lick my face while I roll all over. It makes me giggle and laugh so much!! I'm trying my darndest to start crawling... but I only go backwards or roll over. I do enjoy standing up though. I think I may just skip crawling and go straight to walking.... we'll see though. I've been fussing a lot again this week... I have another tooth coming in on the top. Fun stuff...

This month Mommy made me some homemade baby food. I did not like the green beans at all, even though they are one of my favorite veggies to eat! They must not freeze well. But I have enjoyed my squash, sweet potatoes, and carrots. I hope she can get more creative... I am getting bored of plan veggies and fruit!

Lot's of parties coming up... we went to Jacqueline and Jeremy's house last Saturday. I loved playing with Amara's toys. Next Saturday is Brittany's graduation party and the weekend after that is Daddy's 30th Birthday and a going away party for Aunt Marchell and Uncle Dan. Then Mommy's birthday the next weekend!! We sure are busy. Can't wait for summer... no school and days at the pool.

Talk to you soon!

Amazing April

Wow! It's been a long time since I've blogged... sorry about that. It's been a pretty busy month. Where to begin....

Met the Easter Bunny this month. He was so kind to wear an outfit that matched my Easter dress for our pictures. He was pretty cute. I really liked playing with his furry cheeks and whiskers!

I took my first plane ride to Tampa so that I could visit Grandma and Grand Dad for Easter. I brought Mommy and Daddy with me, too. But Cooper had to go on his own vacation without us... The plane ride was great. Lots of new people to meet and talk to and so many new and exciting things to see. I got to meet my Great Grandma Griffith (I think I will call her GG from now on... that's a mouth full!). I also went swimming, well floating, in the hot tub. The pool was a little too cool so I hung out there instead. I LOVE the water. It was fun to splash Mommy and Grand Dad. I have a little boat that I could hang out in... it was so relaxing. I also took my first dip in the Gulf of Mexico. After Easter dinner we took a sunset stroll on the beach. Daddy found me an AWESOME shark's tooth. It is a Tiger Shark tooth from a still-living shark. I also got lots of sea shells. I dipped my toes in the water and enjoyed watching the waves roll in and out, the people playing, and all the birds flying around. Can't wait to go back in July. Daddy booked us a trip for 10 whole days... lots of pool and beach time!! I am a born Beach and Sun Bum.

The week after we got home was a rough one... but for good reason. I got my first two teeth! They are on they bottom and coming up at the same time. I enjoy playing with them with my tongue and biting the spoon when Mommy feeds me. Sometimes they hurt, but a little time with my teething ring and things are all good.

Yesterday was my 6 month birthday. Daddy took me to the doctor for 4 more shots... OUCH!! I feel a little yucky today from them, but it's not too bad. I am really making progress. I can sit all by myself and roll all the way around now. I've been trying to inch around when I am on my belly but I've not gotten too far yet. I think I'll be crawling soon. Mommy and Daddy are in for it when that happens! Cooper, Mitch, and Tim better watch out, too!

School is going great... I really love my "Bunny" friends (that's the name of our room... the Baby Bunnies. How clever). It's usually just Paige, Trey, and myself. Trey's been out a while though... Miss Trish said he was in the hospital because he was really sick. I hope he feels better and I really hope he doesn't make me sick!! Miss Trish takes us for lots of walks now that the weather is nice. I love to be outside. It's so fun to see the birds and listen to them sing and to see all of our "senior" friends out and about Brethren Village. They sure are happy to see us babies everyday!

Well, that's about it for now. I promise I will not let it go so long between blogs.

Hugs and Kisses,

Exciting Times

Well, nothing too exciting happened this past week. I turned 5 months old on Tuesday. I'm slowly but surely adding some more foods to my repetoire. My favorites are my cereals (rice, wheat, and barley), sweet potatoes, bananas, and green beans. Next up on the list is apple sauce.

I had a fun day today. Mommy and I went to look at houses with Aunt Dana and Uncle Andrew. Nana and Poppop were there, too. It was nice while we were out looking so it was fun to be outside. We ran into some trouble coming home though. Around Morgantown the sky got really black and ugly. Then it started to rain really hard and hail. Of course, I slept through all of it while Mommy got us home safely. I guess March is going out like a lion, just like it came in!

I can't wait for the spring weather. I want to go outside more!! Hopefully our trip to Florida in a few weeks will jump start this spring!
