Big Girl Bed

Mom and Dad wanted to wait until we got to Pittsburgh to put me in a bed, but I had to break free from the little cage they had me sleeping in. Although I actually liked it I was waking up a lot at night because it was just too small for me. I am feeling pretty proud to be in a bed, the first thing I noted was "it has no bars" My parents wonder how long it will take for me to realize that I can get out of the bed on my own! The best part is I have lots of room for the twenty friends I like to sleep with.

Birthday Party

I had a great time at my "Little Gym" birthday party. Thanks to all my friends for coming and celebrating with me. Mom and Dad gave me a digital camera of my own and I took over 500 pictures at the party, as you can see I barely put it down once they gave it to me. Also, thanks to Chris for all the great photos!

First Trip to the Library

Since my dad is a Librarian it's about time they took me to a Library. I had a lot of fun, especially jumping on the bean bags. It was even worth cracking my lip open on Mom's knee because I got some strawberry ice-cream!

If you aren't related to me, a Mom or Dad or a former Peace Corps volunteer you probably want to stop reading now (and maybe even if you are)

Mom isn't really trying to potty train me yet or anything crazy like that, but she did buy me some books that talk about it and one of those little miniature toilets you put in the bathroom. Today, as I often do, I touched the back of my diaper and said "poop" This usually is because I have a poop and mom checks it and then we have a little battle over the actual changing of the diaper. Today when I said that and she checked the diaper there was no poop. So she asked me if I had to go poop and wanted to sit on the potty because she was a little curious why I would say 'poop' when I didn't have one. So I ran toward the bathroom and she sat me on the potty. Then I pointed at her and said "Mommy pee-pee" which is my way of saying, Mom sit on the toilet too. The whole time she thought I was just going through the motions so when she lifted me up and saw that there was actually a poop in the toilet she was very surprised. And that's the story of my very first poop in the toilet.

Rough Day

Today I took a little spill out in the parking lot. I fell down a couple of stairs. I think I handled it much better than mommy, but it does hurt. I found that chewing on the Tylenol bottle and putting ice on my foot really helped. On the positive side a new toy got delivered today, a much needed distraction.

I weigh 10 lbs. 6 oz. which is the 90th percentile
My head is 15 cm. which is the 75th percentile
And I'm 22.5 in. which is the 90th percentile

(90th percentile for height is pretty funny considering who my parents are. My prediction is this will level off at some point and ultimately I will drop down below the 10th percentile)
