Standing by myself

Yes, I am pulling up on everything and then I fall down, cry, and get right back up and try again. I guess that's what they call learning to master something, try and try again. I am getting very good at crawling too, I can really cruise when I see something that I want, which is most everything nowadays. Mom bought me a deluxe boat, so I can swim around in the pool. We went to Breckenridge on Saturday and I got to try it out there. It was fun to kick my feet and do a little splashing around too. We had a fun day.
I am doing very well with eating now too. I don't spit everything out quite as much as before. I like sweet potatoes, carrots, squash and I'm warming up to peaches.I'm not sure what we are going to do this weekend, but I hope that you have a great rest of your week. Bye for now.

6 month check up

I had my 6 month check up on Monday. So here are the stats: Weight: 14 lbs. 11.5 oz Height: 2' 2.5" head: 16.75". I am just on the curve and doing well. I have the highest percentage for my height (61%). I also had to have some more shots, but I did real well. I cried just a little, but then I had my smile again. Now, I have a cold, so I am not feeling too well, but it will pass. I am working on my crawling and getting better and better. We've had a busy week. Mom broke her glasses so we had to go to the eye doctor and then pick out some new frames. Her glasses are really cool. Mom is working a little bit more this weekend, so it will me daddy and me time. I love to be with my daddy. We do lots of fun things together. I also like to be read too, now that I don't have to put the book in my mouth. Well, that's about all for now, I'm suppose to be napping, but I wanted to let you know how I was doing. Have a great weekend. Bye for now.

I was hand-picked....My mommy told me that before time began Jesus hand-picked me to come and live with them. Because my birthmom and birthdad love me so much they wanted me to have the best life I could have so they hand-picked my mommy and daddy to love me and raise me as their own. I am so happy to have been hand-picked to be part of this family. I feel so blessed and thankful to my birthparents for their love and for making this most difficult decision. I'm glad that I get to visit with them and get to know them too. They get to see how I have changed and grown and how very loved and taken care of I am each time we see one another. I hope that in some small way this helps them know that they made the right choice. Thank you.

I am doing well. I am doing the army crawl and sometimes taking a few steps on all fours before I fall on my tummy. I can get around pretty quickly though, keeps mom and dad on their toes. I am eating some solids again too, tried sweet potatoes and bananas. It took a few days to like the sweet potatoes, but the bananas were much better. I also like oatmeal much better than rice cereal. I have learned a trick, when I don't want to eat anymore, I just stick my tongue out and then there is no way you're getting any food in my mouth. It works like a charm. That's about all that has been happening with me lately. Bye for now.

Almost Crawling

Here I am, almost crawling....I can stand up on all fours and move my legs, but my arms and legs don't seem to want to move together. I somehow either end up on my head or on my belly and then do my flying maneuver. Mom and dad are getting the house ready for my crawling debut, gates and locking devices, so I can see what I can get into and what really works well. I have become quite the little screamer too, especially when mom takes me shopping, I must let everyone know that I am there too. Don't forget about me....:) I am growing, I just had my six month pictures taken and I was a challenge for the lady taking my picture, she would try to pose me a certain way and then I would move all over, so she just went with it and they turned out real well anyway. Grandpa and Grandma B are coming again this weekend, so mom is getting things ready for their visit. I hope that you have a good weekend..I am doing very well and enjoying all the attention. Bye for now.
