Oh no she DI'N'T

Can you believe my mom made me wear a DRESS??? She says sometimes you have to get dressed up, even if you don't want to. Luckily, my Aunt Bridget & Uncle John got me this really cute sun dress that looked really great with the sweater my Uncle Garrett bought me. And...I got to wear the white patent leather shoes my mom had bought specially for my christening...but they were a little small on me so I went barefoot most of the day.

Even though we didn't have to go to church, we went to celebrate my buddy Alex's baptism...he's Greek Orthodox and so his mom said we could just come to the luncheon. Did you know they dunk you ALL the way under when you get baptized there? I told Alex I would have ROCKED that, since my mom and dad and I go under all the time when we go swimming.

The luncheon was from 2 until 4, which is usually when I nap, so I was really tired by the time we got home. I fell asleep in the car for a little bit and Mom was nice enough to stay in the car and nap with me for a while. Even still, I was really sleepy when we got in the house, so I took another nap, this time with Daddy.

We're getting a HOUSE!

Hi everyone!!!

My mom and dad just told me we're going to be renting another house! There was this one they wanted to buy, but it was kinda expensive...and then they found out we can rent it! We're hoping to rent it July 1 so we can move in and get settled and enjoy the rest of the summer before they have to go back to work. You can see a picture of it here:

and the best thing is, it's got a HUGE yard for us all to play in! Stay tuned for more details...

I'm almost ONE!


Aunt Summer wouldn't approve...but I tried on my hand-me down Crocs just in time for summer! At first I didn't know what to do with these weird things on my feet--I kept lifting my legs real high, first one and then the other--but once I got used to the way they felt I started cruising all over the place--from Mommy's leg across the length of the couch, and then over to the chairs. They look cute with my purple sweatpants, don't they?

I'm getting so big now, I really enjoy hanging out with other kids--even if they're bigger than me! Me and my cousins had a fun time playing tag at Richard's birthday party.

I missed my boat--my grandpa had it forever because he had to fix the rockers on it. One day when I was playing with my Poppi, we rocked the boat so hard that the front rocker split right in two! Oops! The last time I sat in my boat I still seemed a little small for it, but it's starting to fit me just right!

My first bike ride

I am still waiting for my "big girl" bike seat so I can ride up top with either Mommy or Daddy, but until then, I get to sit in the Burley...it's like a stroller only we go waaaaaay faster!

My dad says we always have to wear helmets when we go out on our bikes. He took me out around the town in my brand new pink bunny helmet...isn't it cool?
