Bradley Reunion #2

Mommy and I got together with our friends from our childbirth class. I had a great time, and it was so fun to play with people my own age, Mommy and Daddy are great and all, but these guys were so much more entertaining! Here are some pictures, and a video of us having a bit of a meltdown at the end of the night. Hmmm, must do pictures first before playing.

Eating Solids and Loving It!

Where do I begin - so much has been happening. I started eating solid foods, so far I've had rice cereal and avocado and I love both! Next week's addition - BANANAS:) Mommy also experimented with sippy cups and finally found one that I can get some water out of, now that is fun! My two bottom teeth have popped through, not so fun. Along with the teeth came some serious diaper rash, and my daytime napping has been short and not so sweet. (We are hoping the short napping is due to teething, and not the start of a bad habit!) We think crawling is right around the corner - I have started "moving" around on the floor during tummy time. I also do this thing where I move my butt up and down and flail my arms and legs - Mommy and Daddy call it my humping move. Seems I've taken a page out of Cass's book, for those of you who don't know, my dog is infamous for grabbing her pillow and humping the couch. Isn't that horrible of my parents to label my cute little innocent baby moves with such a disgusting name? Next up for the blog - Swim Lessons - we start February 7th!!!

Enjoy my cute pictures!

Finally asleep after Mom and Dad refused to turn me over on my belly after the tenth time!

Mommy can't get the spoon there fast enough


I actually did get some in my mouth....

I adore my friend Morgan

I sometimes hold my own bottle

Accidentally rolling over and bringing my puppy with me

Falling asleep on Daddy

Airing out that nasty diaper rash, I think it bothered Mommy more than it bothered me!

Avocadoes! Note the snout in lower right corner, didn't take Cass long!

Recap: Eat food, put fingers in mouth, let Cass lick fingers, put fingers back in mouth...Ewwww!

I'm getting to be a pro in the exersaucer, check it out!

Santa Was Good To Me

Before Mommy took down all the Christmas decor, we lined up all my loot and took a picture so we can remember how lucky I am and how good everyone was to me. Here's the rundown: a new toy box made especially for me by my Great Uncle Don, the Jungle Cruise and Crawl, a basketball hoop, a beginner Thomas the Train wooden railroad track, a squishy Tonka truck, a Scoot n Ride, a tugboat bath toy, Elmo Live, a turtle constellation night light, books, puzzles, jammies and not to mention some contributions to the college fund. Thanks everyone for a great first Christmas:)

I'm not spoiled!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a great Christmas. I was of course spoiled by grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, and cousins. I'm used to being at home in the peace and quiet of my house, so going to Grandma and Grandpa's for almost a week was quite the change - all of these kids running around, playing with my toys; four dogs licking me; sleeping in a pack and play, having to listen to Mommy, Grandma and Grandpa order each other around when they were getting things ready on Christmas Eve...boy was I happy to come home to my nice big quiet crib.

I've hit some major milestones since the last post. I am now sleeping through the night, and none of this five hour at a time stuff the experts call sleeping through the night, I am talking 7pm to 7am. Mommy and Daddy keep telling everyone that life is bliss in the Tomczuk house - funny, I thought that started on August 6, 2008. My second accomplishment is rolling over from my belly to my back. One problem, I haven't quite figured out how to roll from my back to my belly. Mommy and Daddy heard me scream like crazy one night because I had rolled over in my sleep, couldn't figure out how get back to my belly, and woke myself up. Finally, I have sort of started giggling, I've included a video, you be the judge on whether it qualifies as a giggle!

Check back in a few weeks, we're starting cereal soon, and there are sure to be some good pictures!
