My new toy rocks!



I'll be ready to start boulder-jumping any day now! My new training involves lots of twisting and turning and bouncing around in my new Sassy Jumper. It wasn't even Christmas and my mom bought it for me, wasn't that nice of her?

Brrr...baby, it's cold outside!


Winter seems to have hit Chicago...my crazy mom seems to think it's still ok to walk every day, no matter how cold! Good thing I have lots of nice warm clothes to bundle up in when she takes me out in the stroller. I love the fresh air, and watching the wind in the trees. Yesterday, though, she forgot to put my mittens on, and my hands got so cold they hurt!
This is my favorite picture of me and my Dad...doesn't he look handsome? I love this sweater, especially because my "Aunt" Amy knitted it especially for me! We were out apartment hunting. I liked both places we saw, but one of them was next to the site of a new condo development...my mom didn't think that was so great. Too noisy for when I'm napping! The other one was really big and nice, but now my dad says he wants to live closer to my Grandpa and Grandma and my Mimi and Poppi...and of course Aunt Suzie! He says it'll be easier and way less expensive than trying to go back and forth to the city...which is fine by me! More people around to give me lots of attention. The city's fun and all...but I'm still too young to really appreciate it anyway.

I did it!!

I slept through the night, all by myself! I didn't need help from Mommy or Daddy. Aside from a little midnight snack, I slept all night long. When I woke up in the middle of the night, all I did was roll over and get comfy on my tummy, suck my thumb a little bit, and I put myself back to sleep all on my own. Pretty cool, huh?

Oh yeah, and I also figured out how to roll onto my back, finally!!! I was getting so frustrated because I kept getting stuck on my tummy, and I couldn't figure out how to roll over again. Now I've got it down, and I can roll halfway across the room before Mommy notices. She better start paying more attention to me!

Trick or treat!

My first Halloween was quite a success. Thanks to my Mimi (grandma) for badgering my mom and dad until they bought me a Halloween costume. How could I not dress up for my very first Halloween? I went trick or treating to my grandma and grandpa's house, my Noni's (great-grandma's), and to my Mimi's friend's house for chili...that's where I fell asleep. My bedtime is quite early these days...I'm usually in bed by 7:30! Mom and Dad kept me out a little too late, but it was worth it!!
