I Can Walk

I am officially walking now! Of course I am not very good at it yet and fall over all the time, but I am getting the hang of it. Watch out everyone I will be running soon!

Thank You!

I made it. I survived my first birthday jungle party, and had so much fun! Thank you everyone for coming. I loved hanging out with you. You should have seen grandma's house. My Uncles Keegan and Chris decorated it to look just like a jungle. They had streamers that looked just like leaves and trees everywhere. Then they had monkeys hanging from the ceiling fans and climbing up the fireplace. It was awesome. Mom made a very tasty snake and tiger cake and we all ate my favorite food...spaghetti. I learned all about opening presents...I had so much fun tearing off all the wrapping paper! Then inside the wrapping paper were so many cool toys and clothes. I couldn't believe all the wonderful things people thought of. Thank you thank you thank you. They wore me out...I partied all day...and now I am exhausted.

It's My Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to me!! I am 1 year old and to celebrate, I went to the zoo and saw all of my favorite animals. I was so excited to see all the animals, but at first, the zoo seemed to only have trees and lots of sidewalks. I was looking all over to find a lion or a giraffe, but all I saw was sidewalks and people with silly hats. Daddy kept saysing look...look, and I couldn't figure out what he was talking about. I was so bored...But then I saw it...this thing they call a penguin! It swims just like a fish! Can you believe it. Right there at the zoo...I saw it! After that we saw a lot of animals. My favorite was the lion. I thought I was going to be able to pet her and roll around on the ground with her...like I do with Maddie. I crawled right up to her, put out my hand to grab some fur...and all I got was glass. I was a little disappointed. Mom said they needed the glass so she wouldn't eat me, but I wasn't scared at all...she was a nice lion. I could tell.

I am One Smart Cookie!!!

Well, they say I am all most a year old. I hear there will be a party soon. I think it is a pretty special day because I have already gotten some cards and special presents in the mail from my Great great Aunt Pat and Maggie.

Mom and dad are getting so excited. They think I am "so smart" and they keep making me do silly "monkey tricks." "Show me your ear...your mouth..." over and over and over...and every time they get so excited. You know it isn't rocket science.
I am getting to be pretty good at sign language. Grandma Ray taught me how to sign "mom" and "dad." She didn't like me calling everyone a "monkey." Mom and dad thought it was pretty funny, and were sad to find out I didn't think they were monkeys anymore. I have about 17 signs that mom and dad can understand. They say some of them look alike, but they still know what I am talking about. I am also starting to say some words. They aren't like mom and dad's words, but they are getting close. I can say mama, mouth, milk, nana kind of, sort of, but you may not think so. I am kind of sort of, but not really walking too. When I forget to think about walking, I accidently take a few steps.

The Apple Orchard

What a fun day. I went to Edward's Apple Orchard today. It was so cool! Did you know they have goats, and pigs, and geese, and DONUTS!! I rode on a tractor and even bought some apples. Mom and dad said that this place was like the Disney Land of Apple Orchards. I have no idea what that means, but everyone had a great time.
