Week 27 July 26th-August 1st

As Daddy mentioned in his comments for last week's post, I didn't include my 6 month birthday present from him.  Well, I didn't play with it until the day after, so that means it goes into this post.  So what did Daddy buy me?

A laptop!

I'm not sure I know what to do with it yet, but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.

Mommy normally takes me to the park to walk around (well, she walks, I sit in the stroller).  But this time she thought I should try out the swings.  I'm just relaxing here, not particularly enjoying the ride, though not disliking it either.  Maybe when I'm a bit older, I'll like it more.  It reminds me of the swing we have at home.  Perhaps that's why it doesn't seem much different to me.

We went again the next day.  I like the swing better this time around.  Mommy figured out a better way for me to sit.

I'm definitely liking this jumperoo toy more now. I was going nuts jumping up and down for several minutes. 

I want my own smart phone!

I like shiny objects.  I'm reaching for Grandpa's watch here (though you can't see it).  I must get that from my mommy.  Ooohh..sparkly.

Mommy has been dying to let me try applesauce.  I don't know what the big deal is.  But here is what I think of it.


Guess I don't like it much.  Mommy thinks she may have to try another brand.

I finally met up with Alex again!  My old buddy's nap coincided with mine today.  Yay for us!  Though, as you can see, we're not really paying all that much attention to each other. 

Here, let me help pull you down.

As you can see, I'm sitting up much better now.  I'm not folded over like a taco (much) anymore.  I actually like sitting by myself.  It's just hard work. Mommy can hear me breathing a bit harder the longer I sit. 

Uncle Juan was here also.  He's Daddy's "little brother."  I'm a bit confused, since they look nothing alike.

Daddy put me on his shoulders today.  Look how high I am!!!  Notice the burp cloth on his head?  Mommy wanted to protect him from any drool or worse coming out of my mouth.  :)

 My Great Auntie Leona and Great Uncle Paul are in town for business again.  

I was like a helicopter propeller on top of Great Uncle Paul's head.

Grandma is holding me up in this picture.

I like touching Daddy's goat tee.

We went to the Berkeley Kite Festival on Sunday.  Mommy was hesitant because that would mean I'd miss my afternoon nap.  But I did ok overall.

Here I am intently staring at the kites.

I'm on top of the world!!  Well, up above Daddy anyway.  You can see one kite up there.

Yummy...trying calabasa squash.

It was fun though a little too much for me.  I was overtired and had a difficult time going to sleep in the evening.  Mommy's happy we got out to experience something new though.  We just can't make a habit of me losing my naps.  :)  Hope you enjoyed the pictures!


  1. Oh, man, we almost went up for the kite festival too! Next time, call me! Elliot's looking like such a big boy now and the toy accumulation has begun.

  2. Aww, he looks so little in that swing! You'll have to go back and use it to measure his growth each month :)

    Kite festival sounds cool, I never heard of it.

  3. Yep, we are both trying to expose him to new things and experiences, and having fun doing it. What an eventufl week! The kite festival was great...I took my Little there on Sat and the fam there on Sun. Family friendly event.
