Nine Months Young!

I love to stand up!

Cruising around the exersaucer is lots of fun! Who wants to sit inside of it when you can walk around it.

I've discovered that bookshelves are great places to stand.

I'm almost ready to walk with my hippo walker.

I'm showing Mommy what see needs to put away until I'm older. I can get into all kinds of mischief now.

One hand only! My mommy's impressed by little things.

The Crazy Hair Continues

Do you think my hair will always be this crazy? I need to tell Mommy to buy some gel for my hair. I've got to protect my image.

My Valentine Sweeties

My girlfriends, Emma and Gretchen, came over for a Valentine lunch today.

I'm learning new tricks every day!

Guess what I can do now? Stand up in my crib!!! Mommy came in to check on my yesterday during naptime because I was fussing. She found me standing up in my crib. I had never done this before. When she walked in, I gave her a huge smile because I was very proud of myself. Mommy is proud too, but she hopes I learn how to get down by myself soon. She wants me to sleep during naptime, but I've been busy practising my new trick these past few days.

My Buddy Jacob

My friend, Jacob, came over on Sunday afternoon. He's only a little over a month older than I am. We have lots of fun together. We play together in the nursery at church. I'm so happy to have friends to play with. Look, we have matching shoes.

Another Crazy Hair Day

Can you see my tooth?

A New Buddy!

I have some exciting news to announce. Avery Greer was born on Friday. Her daddy, Trey, is mommy's cousin, and they live in Tyler, Texas. Check out their new blog to see more pictures of Avery. Mommy added it to the list of links. I can't wait to play with Avery the next time I'm in Tyler.

My New Trick

I've learned how to wave bye-bye and hello. I just started doing it today. Mommy and Daddy think it's so cool, and I like it when they cheer, clap, and make a big deal about what I do. They get excited about all of the little things I do. Everyone needs a fan club, and I'm glad they are mine.

Bad Hair Days

Sometimes, I wake up from my nap, and my hair is going in every direction. There's not much my mom can do about it. I told her just be thankful that I have hair.

Mommy thinks I'm pretty cute. Do you agree? Posted by Picasa

Mmmmm! Mommy gave me some avocado the other night for dinner. It was yummy and very messy. Posted by Picasa
