My big Brother Adam

I had fun with my big brother Adam who was visiting from college. He even read me one of my favorite stories while he was here. He promises to take me swimming when we visit him in Kentucky for Christmas. See you in a few weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had my first Thanksgiving. Even though I could't eat any of the dinner I still had a good time. My brothers were here and my Aunt Nichie and my parents friends came. We had a great feast that took Mom and Dad all day to make. We missed all of our families that were out of state and send hugs and kisses to them. I can't wait until next year so I can try the food.

Helping Daddy around the Kitchen

I love having Dad let me help around the kitchen. I help stir with a wooden spoon. I help empty the dishwasher. I help wash the dishes. And I help give cookies to the doggies.

Some new fun I have found

Some new fun things I have found to do at my house may seem silly but I enjoy them. One thing I like doing is playing with an empty paper towel roll. I like to pull Mommy's scarf through it. Some fun I have been having with Daddy is to sit on top of the pool table and have Dad roll the pool balls around. I love it! Also since I am getting so good at putting my things in my mouth like bottles and pacifiers I decided to try munching on Daddy's remote for the Tv.

Cute Orange Dress

I have this cute orange dress. My Mom wanted to show everyone a picture of me in it.

My first Cold- 5 months old

I am now 20 weeks and I have my very first cold. What a crummy way to start my 5th month!. Dad and Mom feel so helpless with my runny nose and sore throat. I have been a real trooper though. I also have been wanting to chew on my teething ring alot these past few days too.

Where did my lamb go?

My Mom and I like to play with all of my stuffed animals. I practice hugging and kissing them. I can sit up pretty good now and pick them up but sometimes they are too big and I drop them quickly. My dogs keep a close watch over me to make sure the stinky cat doesn't come too close.

Neighbor to Neighbor

My Mom took me to her ladies Bible study on Wednesday called Neighbor to Neighbor. I had fun playing on the floor while they talked. Mom's friend Ruth gave me a big hug. We made plans to gather dinners for the less fortunate in our community for Thanksgiving. We talked about having grace in our lives. I enjoyed having all of mom's friends take turns holding me.

Aunt Nichie

My super cool Aunt Nichie is so much fun. I get to hang out with her now when my mom and dad are at work. I teach her how to play the piano and pet the dogs. I let her take me for a stroll around the house. She reads me my favorite stories and turns on my swing. She gives me plenty of hugs and kisses while my parents are at work.

Look at me holding my bottle

I've become really good at holding my own bottle, especially the little 5oz one. Also I'm getting alot better at petting Tator and Foxy.

Our little pilgrim

Lola doll wore this sweet bonnet that her great grandma made for her to church today. It was such a beautiful day today; we took her for a stroll around the neighborhood.

Maybe I'll be a piano player

Dad and Mom have set out a keyboard for me to play with. At first I would just watch them play it, but now I am finding out that I can make noise by slapping around on the keys. I enjoy my new toy but it is right next to the fish tank and I get distracted by the fish. So maybe I will be a piano player.....

My 1st Halloween

I was Tinkerbelle for my 1st halloween. I went to my Daddy's work to go trick or treating. I sure had fun picking a piece of candy from the candy dishes. Then since I could't eat it I would just make a candy trail behind me. I also enjoyed petting the tiny giraffe. I even helped my brother Eric pick our family pumpkin- even though it was still quite green. Mommy carved a Princess pumpkin for me. On Halloween night I helped my Mom pass out candy to all the children.

Our last day there

Our last day started with us making sure my brother Adam made it to the airport on time for his flight back to Kentucky. Then we headed over to the start of the freedom trail. We saw a lot of sites. Mom was glad to see the Ducks statue.

A Rainy Day in Boston

Saturday we woke up to a very rainy day. We decided to grab the umbrellas and venture out anyway. We went North Church and learned about how Paul Revere was a bell ringer there. From there we couldn't go much further because we were pretty wet. So we headed back to the mall by the hotel and grabbed some lunch. Then the girls took a nap while the boys went to the science museum. After that we took the subway to Harvard for a little stroll since the rain had let up.
