Well Saturday was the big day. I had my birthday party. All of my family and friends came over and we all had a good time. Dad barbequed, we all ate and then it was time for the good stuff. Birthday cake! And presents! I really like birthday cake especially the icing as you can see from the pictures.

I can't wait to get my hands in that!

Just the beginning

That's how you're supposed to eat cake. Isn't it?

Being smothered by my cousins

I had such a good time. I got some great presents, but my favorite is my bean bag. I like to sit in it a lot. It's nice and soft. I was so worn out by the end that I went to bed as soon as everyone left and slept the whole night.

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to Tyler
Happy Birthday to me!!!

Can you believe I am already one year old and can't hold my head up yet. Who would of thought that. I may not be able to hold my head up yet but I prefer it that way. I'm working on it and I will hold it up when I am good and ready. Don't rush me. Anyways I got to spend my birthday working on holding my head up. My therapist ended up having to come in the morning and ruin my birthday for me. But I cooperated and worked hard and held my head up for several seconds with some help. After she left I got to spend the rest of the morning with mom and dad. We got to play and have fun. Then they both had to go to work, so I got to spend the rest of the day at my cousins Luke and Drew's house. I got to watch Luke ride his bike without training wheels and crash a few times and of course watching Drew play. I even got to eat some ice cream and man was it good. Overall I had a pretty good birthday but this weekend is going to be the best part of my birthday because that is when my party is going to be. And I get to open up all my presents.

Well what has changed since the last time? I have been extra, extra fussy. Not sleeping. Driving my mom and dad crazy. And making a lot more noises. Why is this you ask? Well, I have been fussy and not sleeping because I am getting another tooth. And not just a tooth but a molar. And man do those hurt. But it finally broke through yesterday and feels much much better. I finally got a good nights rest last night by sleeping ALL night. Mom and dad liked that a lot. I have also been making a lot more different noises and sounds. And I really like listening to myself. Another thing that I have discovered is that I don't like being myself. The other night mom was making supper and I was in the living room playing. I was fine for awhile but then I discovered I was by myself. So I started fussing and made mom stop to play with me. On another note, I have taken a liking for real food. I will still eat the baby food but it sure isn't the same as the real stuff. Mom is still trying to feed me baby food every once in awhile to get rid of it. Good thing I am not a picky eater. I can't wait till that's all. My favorite food now is ravioli. One of the reasons I am eating adult food is because I am chewing my food up much better. I used to not chew so well and gag on a lot of my food. But I have finally achieved the whole chewing concept. I still gag every now and then when I am not paying attention or are so hungry I forget to chew.

Home, sweet, home

Home, sweet, home! Mom, dad and I went on a road trip this weekend. We went to see my Grandpa Lanny, who I've never seen before. He lives kind of far away. I was really good on the trip. I slept most of the way there and most of the way back. But because of that it took me awhile to go to sleep at night. It wasn't to bad though. My Aunt Tresa and Uncle Huts and cousins Ollie and Tori were there too. So I got to play with them a lot. I like playing with Ollie. I think we will be good buddies when I get bigger. He makes sure Tori doesn't take my toys away from me. He looks out for me and tells me that he likes me. Other than that I had a fun trip but I was ready to be home and sleep in my own bed.

Early mornings

This is what I was NOT doing at 3 o'clock this morning or the morning before. Yesterday morning and this morning I decided I wanted to be up bright and early. I thought it was time to be up. I woke up bright and early and mom gave me a bottle thinking I was hungry and well I kind of was so I drank my bottle but then I wanted to stay up for a little while. Mom put me back to bed hoping I would go back to sleep but I didn't. I laid there and played and listen to my music until I fell to sleep. I did sleep in this morning until 9:00. So I was ready to go after that. Mom and I have been playing all morning and even did a little therapy. Which tuckered me out. So then it was time for my afternoon nap. I'll try not to sleep to long so then maybe I'll sleep through the night and not have to wake mom up so early tomorrow morning.
