Mommy has decided that I look older today. I must have grown overnight:)
I am ready to read!

Yummy Lunch!

I am eating so good! Today for lunch Mommy gave me sweet potatoes, and some green bean casserole left over from Sunday lunch. It was so good! She even let me feed myself a little bit. I am getting pretty good at it.
Mmmm, look at those sweet potatoes -
Maybe I can reach them with my fork.
Oh, forget the fork! Hands are better!

A Few Weekend Pics -

Mommy walked into the kitchen and found me stiring in my sippy cup with my spoon! I've seen Mommy do this in the mornings with her coffee, so I thought I would give it a try.
Easter Sunday - Not the best family pic, but it is the only one we took. After church we went to the Hively's house & ate a yummy lunch and then hunted Easter eggs in the backyard. It was a bit chilly!
Daddy and me, hanging out! I love the weekends since Daddy is home more! Yea!

Play Group!

Today Mommy's friends and their kids came over to play & eat lunch. We had a great time! The weather was perfect for playing outside!Mommy & me swinging! I got to ride in the wagon with Nolan!
Hanging out in the sun!
The pretty blooms on our pear tree!

So Obedient :)

Today I really impressed Mommy 2 different times!

First, Mommy came into the living room and sat down in the chair to put on her makeup. I crawled over and wanted to help. She handed me a few items to play with & that kept me content until she finished. When she got done, she realized the powder container she had given me was under the end table by the chair. She pointed to it and said, "Michael, would you get that for Mommy?" I looked at her and then looked at where she was pointing. She asked one more time and so I crawled down, picked it up, and handed it to her!

Then, just a little later, we were in Mommy's bedroom. I crawled into the bathroom and she asked me to come back to her. I looked at her and then began to "walk" back out of the bathroom, holding onto the wall. Once I got to the door frame I held my hand out to her and we walked down the hall together! She was so proud of me for following directions! :)

Fun Day!

What do you think of my warm weather outfit?
I love looking outside...Let's go Mommy!
Today we had friends over to eat lunch, so Mommy let me sit in the high chair that she used when she was a baby! I didn't really know what the big deal was, but she thought it was necessary to document the event.

My Blankie

I love my blankie! Lately I have been crawling into my room and reaching into my bed to get it out. Then I bring it out into the living room and crawl around with it.

Blocks, Sippy Cups, and More!

I am really good at playing independently! I love to put my blocks in their container, pour them out, and put them back in again ~ over & over & over!
Yesterday I thought it would be funny to put on Daddy's t-shirt. I crawled over to it and put it on all by myself. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but I put my head through the sleeve! :)
Mommy lets me play with all my sippy cups and tupperware. It is so much fun to pull out each piece and scatter them all over the living room!
Leaving the scene of the crime...I see something more interesting that I must go explore!

Walking With Assistance

Here I go...

This weekend I discovered how much fun it is to walk around the house holding Mommy or Daddy's hand!

A Fun Tuesday!

While Mommy wasn't looking, I pulled the tupperware off the table and ate the sweet potatoes all by myself -
with the help of my hands and my spoon. :)
Today Mommy's friend Julie and her little yorkie, Ernie, came over! I got to play with Ernie while Mommy & Julie painted.

Here is Mommy's painting, although she said she isn't finished yet. Julie's painting was really pretty too! I wish I had taken a picture of it!

Sweet Boy -

I am eating my sweet potatoes with a fork! I don't know if Mommy has mentioned it, but sweet potatoes and bananas are my favorites! I could eat them for every meal! This morning at breakfast I ate a whole banana by myself!
Catching some zzz's.
Playing with my Hummer is so much fun!
Cool hair, huh? This was right before Mommy gave me a little trim. My hair grows fast!

I am 13 months old! March 2, 2008

Good News! Today I had a dr appt with a Pediatric Endocrinologist ~ a doctor who specializes in the growth of children/hormones/etc. Since I am a little smaller than most 1 year olds, my pediatrician wanted me to go. The good news is that I am healthy and my size is great! The doctor said that I am growing just right and will probably be smaller than my peers for a while. The average boy stops growing at age 17, but I will still be growing and will catch up with my peers later on. Today I weighed 17 lbs, 2 oz. Just 4 weeks ago at my 12 month appt I weighed 16 lbs, 6 oz.
Yea! That whole milk is yummy and helping me grow! :)

Mommy's Cute Boys!

Hanging out with Daddy!

Fun with Daddy!

It doesn't get much better than this! I love when Daddy gets home from work and we can play!
