So Much to Do Now That I am Moving . . .

Where do I even start? I am walking and am getting more and more speedy with my walking. I love to walk outside, play outside, walk in the malls and stores, and just be on the move in general.

I am still doing better with my new transition to daycare and have even stopped crying in the mornings. It is an adjustment for all of us with schedules and all but we are really working to make sure that we have family times and activities to spend time together. We went to one of the local festivals and enjoyed the sun but definitely not the heat and humidity so we did not last too long.

Yesterday, we were scheduled to go to the zoo for family day but the weather just wasn't going to cooperate so we went to a mall and walked around and had dinner. That was a blast! I enjoyed playing in the play area with the other kids but most of all, I loved walking with mom through the mall. I waved at all the people who passed and just walked as much as I could. (Sorry for the poor picture quality, Mom forgot the camera)

Finally, one of my most favorite things to do is to play in my new play area that Mom and Dad developed in the backyard for me. I have so many activities to do that I can just play and play. I have even had a couple of playdates with friends and a recent visit to the splash pad. What fun!

My First Week and Mom's First Week

Last week marked my first week in daycare and Mom's first week on her new job. It was a pretty good week but we were both pretty tired. I am enjoying daycare so far although I do not like when Mom has to leave me in the morning. I enjoy playing with the other kids, singing, and dancing, but I am having a bit of separation anxiety. I am getting better though! I am going to be just fine and so is Mom, as soon as we get used to these early mornings . . .

Party, Party, Party

This weekend was my very first birthday party! It was all planned out and the guests were coming . . . we woke up to thunderstorms that were severe and continued all through the morning. The inflatable was set up in the backyard and the rain continued . . . Mom made a decision to move the party inside so we got started on the decorations, food, toys, and play area. It actually turned out ok. The party was fun, the kids enjoyed playing downstairs, making crafts, and the rain even let up long enough for us to get to use the inflatable for a couple of hours! It was a Pinky Dinky Doo party and I was the guest of honor! What fun!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today was my official 1st birthday! It was pretty fun but I am looking forward to the weekend for my real celebration. Today, Mom and Dad took me to lunch and to play at the mall. While we were there, I got to make my first Build a Bear! Mom and Dad let me pick out the animal I wanted, the outfit, and well Mom picked out the shoes because I couldn't decide. It was fun. I named the cat, "Cutesy". She is pretty cute, just like me. All in all, it was a fun day but I will let you know how the party goes on Saturday.

The Life of the Party . . . or NOT?

So I was definitely NOT the life of this party!

Saturday was my Godbrother's 2nd birthday and we were all excited to go. I am getting my top two teeth though and I was feeling a bit cranky throughout the morning. I had to go though, I had a great dress, we got great gifts, and it was at the Science Center, it should be fun right? Fun, for who? My teeth hurt! You know how you go to a party and there is always a fussy kid, and everyone is secretly wondering, who is that fussy kid? I am sad to report that on this day, that fussy kid was me! Yes, me! Happy, playful, adventurous me! I did warm up a couple of times but other than that, I just wanted to get home, eat, and nap! I am really working this week to get these teeth in so that for my party this weekend, I definitely CAN be the life of the party!
