Apologies and "Coming Soon"

Soooo sorry for the lack of recent updates. The blog has NOT been abandoned! We've just been REALLY busy with all my walking and running and climbing.

But...we're going to relaunch with a new look and more consistent posts and photos very soon.

I'm working on my words in the meantime, they're coming like a tidal wave of vocabulary. Aside from the mama, dada, doggy, ball, no, and meow, I've been branching into some more complex sounds like "stinky." That's my new favorite. Just a little something to keep you updated while we're working on re-doing the site. :)

Happy Mama's Day! (and the best give I had to give)

Today was Mother's Day. It was my mommy's second one ever. I didn't have much to give her but hugs and kisses and smiles and giggles and one thing she's been waiting and waiting for and starting to get very impatient over.


I took my first real steps. Mommy screamed and clapped and smiled so big. She was so excited. And it was a weekend, so Daddy got to be home and see it too!

Mommy grabbed the camera because she knows how much I love to ham it up, but the batteries were dead, so she couldn't video it or take any pictures. She was very sad about that :( , but then Daddy put it into perspective for her. He said "You got to see it, and how beautiful and perfect it was in person, so just remember it." She told me he was absolutely right. I did it for them (I did) and they are my Mommy and Daddy and it was something special that they didn't have to share with the world just yet.

But I am going to keep practicing so I can show Grandma and Auntie Amber and Uncle Steve, and all my awesome cousins how good at it I am when I see them next!

Since the camera died today, here is a cute picture of me napping from this week for aesthetics:

Party, Doctor and Rest

I Had my Birthday party with my family last weekend, and it was a lot of fun. My cousins wear me out though! Here's some pics:

I also went to see Dr. Connolly for my 1 year appointment. I've only gained a little weight even though I eat nonstop but he said thats normal because I'm more active now. I had a little growth spurt though, lengthwise. I weigh 22.6 pounds naked and I am 31 1/4 inches long. I'm getting big enough to start wreaking some havoc!
Hehehehe >:)

I also went in the pool this weekend, but it was cold and I was not digging it very much. I liked visiting Asher though!

Oh and here are just some cute pics of me for your enjoyment...

Little Asher Graham is finally here!

My new buddy is finally here! He was almost born on my birthday but he decided to hang out inside for a little longer. So he is one year and one day younger than me. But we'll still have fun once he gets a little bit bigger and can play!

He was born on April 14th, 2008, weighed 8 lbs 1oz and was 20 inches long.

Happy birthday to me!

Wow. I almost forgot about my blog. LOL! We've just been busy with our move and unpacking and my birthday, which was yesterday btw. I am officially ONE YEAR OLD! Yay!

I got my carseat turned around so I face forward now. I got a bunch of gifts, and I got the yummiest homemade cake that mommy made. It was so awesome. I also got my first Happy Meal from McDonalds with Chicken Nuggets and French Fries and Chocolate Milk, and, and, and...a TOY! But mommy said don't get used to those, it was a special treat.

For my birthday from daddy and mommy I got:

A Wimbley Fraggle Plush
A Gobo Fraggle Plush
A Grover Plush
A Toddlerz Toy Phone
An Elmo Shape Sorter/See & Say
A Marvel Comic Book Heros Ball
1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish Blue Fish
Green Eggs and Ham
Go Dog Go
Where The Wild Things Are
and a Pair of Sesame Street Shoes

Here are some pictures of me and my new stuff:

Next weekend we are having my birthday party. We were going to do it on my birthday but we needed more time to settle into our new place, plus my aunt and uncle and cousins will have an easier time coming down next weekend, and they have a very long drive. I can't wait for more gifts! Hehehehe :)

We are now in our new house in Hollywood too. You can see the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory from the driveway...pretty cool.

So I gotta go break in these new toys some more. See ya!
