Thanksgiving, Birthday, and Christmas 2011

I'll be honest, I'm a little behind on this post, and I was supposed to send this one out quite some time ago. I hope you don't mind. Now, on to the good stuff. This was me, back on Thanksgiving, gobbling up food. I was still on baby food back then, but I still really enjoyed the meal at Grandma's house. Thanksgiving Dinner After Thanksgiving, I stayed at Papa and Grandma's house and played with everything. My cousins came over to join in on the fun. Here we are riding a tractor in the yard! Riding Toy Tractor For my birthday, I got a wagon so we could go on wagon rides. That was a great present that I use all the time for riding around the neighborhood. Here is one of my first rides! Wagon ride Then came Christmas. Here I am with the Christmas tree, just after it was put up. Christmas Tree Our tree was pretty good, but then we went to the city to see a really big tree! Santa's Tree And then came the big day, where I put my newly found present unwrapping skills to work. Opening Christmas Presents Winter is pretty warm where I live, and just to prove it, here I am, at the end of December, outside in just a light jacket. What a day! Light Jacket So that was my Thanksgiving, Birthday, and Christmas. Now on to 2012!

It's been a year!

Wow! I just realized that I haven't posted in over a year! Here is a quick summary of everything I've learned to do since my last post:

Feed myself (I really don't remember ever not doing that, but that start in October of last year)
Clap my hands
First haircut (also in October of last year)
First steps (November)
Eating table food (January 2012)
First shower (all baths before March 2012)
Singing (July 2012)
Dancing to music with mommy (August 31)

Yeah, I know, a lot of stuff. I also do more than blogging, and I can carry on a conversation now. My aunt said I'd be picking up more words soon, and she was right. It's not just "mama", "dada", "no", and "more" but I can say "more cookies please" and "go to school" and "brush teeth" (among other things).

My dad won't ever let me use the computer because he says he needs to do work to pay for my college. I have no idea what college is, but I hear it related to football a lot these days, which I remember is one of those TV shows that my parents watch for hours! I don't know how they do it. I can stand watching TV for more than 5 minutes.

Let's see, lots to write about, so I'm going to break it up into a few posts.
  • Halloween and Thanksgiving 2011
  • My 1st Birthday!
  • Christmas
  • Beach trips
  • Swimming
  • July 4th
  • Stone Mountain
  • Camp in New Hampshire
For now, I've got to go - first football game!

A Day at the Park

So much has happened since my last post - I took my first steps, I turned 1, and I celebrated an incredibly fun Christmas with all of my family. I think my parents have literally taken too many photos of me from all those events to fit on my blog. Ugh - the paparazzi!

I thought I'd share with y'all some fun I had today at the park- you'd never believe it was January 7th from the weather!  My parents have taken me to this park once before, but it was before I was able to walk on my own, so I really couldn't do much.  This time though I was able to get into everything!  I'm looking forward to playing here more when the weather gets nicer in the spring; since it's only 5 blocks from my house, it's definitely walking distance.  Hope you are enjoying some pretty weather of your own!

Me and Mom on the swing


The slides were so much fun!  There are lots of different ones at the playground, and at first Mom and Dad didn't trust me to go on down on my own, so here's some photos of me with my Dad.





WEEEEEEEE!

Happy 2012!
