Fun Times in September!

We haven't been too busy this month, but we're still having fun! We don't have a whole lot planned for the next few months either. I will be starting swimming lessons again soon, can't wait for that! I've been saying a few new words - banana, bath. I'm also getting pretty good at a few words in sign language; I have totally mastered "more", and I'm getting pretty good at "thank you". I also just started going to a babysitter one day a week. I had a lot of fun playing with the other kids, but I came home absolutely exhausted, and I was in bed before 6:00 that night! Enjoy the new photos...speaking of, I had my one year pictures taken, so I'll post those once we get the CD from the photographer!

Daddy and I just waking up, isn't it scary how much we look alike?

Playing with my puzzles

We have one step in our house, and it's my favorite place to sit!

Chilling out watching TV

Sara and Jason, what a funny guy!

I like to feed myself...and make a mess!

Hanging out in my wagon, reading books

My friend Morgan, she didn't like me pushing her...Mommy told me to be nice!

Ok, I will play nice.

Daddy's first day of school...he's going to be a drug dealer, oops I mean pharmacist!

Mmmmm, cheerios and eggs

I was not happy with Mommy....

...and then I got really mad when she was laughing at me, snapping pictures!!!

Our Labor Day picnic at the beach

Yum, the BOSS (Big Oversized Sub Sandwich for those of you not in the know)

My first time eating spaghetti...

...then straight into the tub, where I attempted to wash my own hair

...and brush my own hair

Feeding myself again, yummy cottage cheese. I like cheese in any form really!

Helping Mommy pick tomatoes and water our garden and flowers

Daddy went on a golf outing, and Mommy and I went to the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. I loved it! We saw toads, frogs, bugs, snakes, and turtles. Mommy let me loose on one of the trails too!

I'm getting pretty good at this walking thing!

I'm tired, but I'm having too much fun to admit it!

Come on Mommy!

Hey, can I touch that camera?


I'm gonna get you!

Oooh, look at these pretty purple flowers.

Let's go home!

We saw this beauty as we turned back on the trail to head home.

August 2009!

After my big birthday bash, this is how I spent the rest of August!

My First Shanty Days

Addy, Avery, and Auntie Teresa at the parade

I didn't really watch the parade, I was having more fun with the balloon!



Thanks Ladies for not letting that ball roll away!

Mmmm, ball!

A new friend, Charlie!

We were at Guth's for the parade, here's Jenny!

She showed me the flowers, I like flowers!

Mommy had to go to her class reunion, so I spent the night at Aunt Cindy and Uncle Don's. They have a pool and I loved it!!!!

Then Mommy picked me up and we went to the farm for breakfast with Grandpa and Marion. Hey, what's in this drawer?

Me giving Avery's baby Piper a kiss, aren't I sweet?

Me playing with the Barbie jeep...anyone need a ride?

Addy and Marion playing Barbies.

I love Auntie Teresa!

Full Belly = Tired Baby


Oh, I like that bell!

Avery and a calf having a staredown.

I'm not so sure Mommy, you touch it, lets see if it takes your finger off.

Ok, I'll try it now.

Whee, this is fun!

Addy picked "flowers" for everyone.

Avery was tired of the pictures!

Addy with her hair blowing in the wind, what a little model!

Getting a good look at Freddie.

Mommy and I were hanging out one day as I was learning to walk. Here's me and my Tonka truck!

We finished up our day at the park!
Summer is starting to wind down, and we're already not quite as busy, but I'll keep the pictures coming!
