I spoke too fast

After being sick for two weeks, I was so excited to return to my music class, go to my playgroup and see my friends. I must have overdid it on the partying because I feel lousy! I've had a relapse and I'm sick again... My breathing is asthmatic and I have a 101.6 fever - both of which have been waking me up every hour or so. I have to admit that I am way crabby when I'm sick but my parents have been doing their best to take good care of me.

Meanwhile, I am up to 22 steps! I am getting pretty good at walking but I still primarily crawl. I like to throw my arms up into the air and pretend I'm Rocky while I take my little steps. Here's me right before going for a short walk. Banzai!

Back on track

I am healthy again after being out of commission the last 2 weeks. I caught a nasty respiratory virus called RSV. I didn't like it because the doctors made me breathe out of this plastic mask even though I kept trying to squirm away. Luckily I am better again, and back to practicing my walk! I can take up to 5 steps before I fall - luckily my Mommy's always there to catch me!

Here's me in happier and healthier days. I get so excited when I see my parents. I laugh "ke-ah!" and crawl up to them as fast as I can!

One of my last naps in my beloved Graco infant seat. I hear that I'm getting a bigger seat soon.

Picture on the right: Look - a tree! A bird! The sky! I point at everything now.

I've become a PediaSure junky

I'm drinking this ultra fattening milk called PediaSure because the doctors say I need to fatten up. It took a while for me to get used to, but now I love it! I've become a PediaSure junky, and it's diminished my interest in regular food. But it has helped me gain more weight. I am 16 pounds 4 ounces (<3%), 28 1/2 inches tall (24%), with a 42.8 cm head circumference (4%) now.

My Mom might think we're weaning, but I have other plans.

One year old fun

I am really enjoying all of my new skills and games. My favorite new game is Put Things Back. My parents seem quite pleased because the house has gotten much neater! I also took my first unassisted step today - from the coffee table to my Mommy. I got inspired by all the kids I saw at the Discovery Museum yesterday. I am trying to communicate more now too. I have learned the baby sign language for "sleep", "more" and my favorite "get that sh*t away from me!".

My Very First Birthday Party

I had a big party for my first birthday! My friends, cousins, Pawpaw (Mommy's Mommy) and lots of aunts and uncles came. We held onto some traditions - the gold bracelet Pawpaw got me which I really liked, and the whole roasted pig which I wasn't so keen on. The party was so fun that I didn't want to eat or sleep all day. I just wanted to check out all my guests!

See more pictures from the party here.

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my first birthday today! My parents made me carrot cupcakes, which I loved. I am acquiring quite a taste for sugar!
