Look at all this snow! It's a winter wonderland at my house. Mommy and I stayed indoors yesterday and snuggled. We're about to leave for Texas. Do you think it will look like this there? I've never been to Texas. Posted by Picasa

Hey! Would ya look at this cool new toy my mommy's friend, Jenn, gave me?! It's a puppy that sings, talks, and lights up. He makes me smile and giggle. Posted by Picasa

I really like my new puppy. Thanks, Auntie Jenn! I love you. Posted by Picasa

My favorite part of all of my toys are the tags. I just love to touch them and put them in my mouth. Even though my toys have neat sounds and colors, the tags are the coolest part. Posted by Picasa

My mommy's good friend, Jenn, came to visit tonight. She brought me a really cool puppy that sings. She also got to feed me my dinner. She makes eating peas fun! Posted by Picasa

Mommy set me down on a blanket near the tree, and I scooted myself backwards. Next thing I knew, I was under the Christmas tree. Watch out world! I'm starting to go places. Posted by Picasa

We had a neighborhood Christmas party at our house last night. Don't let my expression fool you-I had a great time. I just would occasionally make sure my mommy and daddy were still close by. I don't like it when they leave the room and I can't see them. I do like it when my neighbors hold me. They've been good friends to my mommy and daddy and to me. Posted by Picasa

I'm dressed in my Santa suit for the party. I always like to look festive. I'm with Diane in this picture. She goes walking with my mommy, and she likes to push my stroller. Posted by Picasa

Ron and Florence live across the street. Mommy went to Florence's house for lunch on the day she went into labor with me. Natalie, the cute girl next to Florence, is also a neighbor. She's in first grade. Posted by Picasa

My mom's favorite cousin, Andrew, came to visit this weekend. He grew up in TX like my mommy but lives in Nasvhille now. He's a rock star. Well, not really but he sings really well and writes music. All that's great, but what's really important is how special he is to our family. I hope he comes back to visit soon. I had lots of fun with him. Posted by Picasa

I liked having Andrew around. He made lots of goofy faces at me. That made me smile and laugh. Mommy said I didn't want to take my afternoon naps while he was here because I wanted to be around him. Now that he's gone, she's hoping I get back into my napping routine. We'll see! Posted by Picasa

Look at all this beautiful snow. Andrew doesn't get to see snow like this very often in Nashville.  Posted by Picasa

I love this little chair. It helps me to sit up on my own. We're just borrowing it from a friend. Posted by Picasa

Guess what? I can sit up on my own now-only for a few seconds though. Another cool thing is my shoes. This is one of my first times to wear shoes. I don't really see the purpose in them right now, but Mommy says they look cute and help to keep my feet warm. Posted by Picasa

Like everything else, I'd like to put the shoes in my mouth. Mommy says it's a good thing I'm not walking yet or these shoes wouldn't taste so great. Posted by Picasa

I love wagon rides with Daddy. Posted by Picasa

I stay warm when I'm next to my mommy. Posted by Picasa

Yipee for snow! Posted by Picasa

It's my first snow!!! Daddy took me outside in my wagon to see the beautiful white stuff that's all over the ground.  Posted by Picasa

I like to look at the beautiful lights and feel the pointy needles on my very first Christmas tree. Posted by Picasa

I'd like to eat the needles on the tree, but Mommy won't let me. Shucks, I'm sure they would taste good. Posted by Picasa

After we got our tree, we went over to the Fulks' house for dinner. Miss Heidi made a yummy meal with sopapillas and hot chocolate for dessert. I wish I could have eaten some of it. I got to play with Gretchen and Emma, so I was happy. Posted by Picasa was cold when we went shopping for our Christmas tree. Posted by Picasa

Here I am singing, "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How lovely are your branches!" Posted by Picasa
