The tied for second important thing this week was that I went down to LA to see my cousin Alyssa for her red egg and ginger party, AND it's my Uncle Mike's birthday!
I also went on my first plane ride!!! It was fun! Here I am in the security bin. Both the TSA security people as well as the passengers behind me were oohing and aahing at me, and told my parents to take a picture of me.
Great Auntie Susanna bought me this cool toy! She was so excited for me to try, Daddy had to open it and set it up right away. I'm not sure what to do with it yet. Mommy put me on this, but I don't know how to move on it yet.
In the afternoon, I took a nap. It lasted maybe an hour. I guess it's because of my position. When Mommy came in to check on me, she saw me like this. She leaned forward to make sure I was still breathing, then went out to get her camera. At least she has her priorities straight. It's blurry because she didn't want to use her flash.
We also went to Joann's to get some ribbon. Look where Daddy found me! Well actually, Daddy put me in this, in case you didn't know.
It was a rowdy couple of nights. I slept waay past my bedtime both Friday and Saturday nights...Friday because we arrived late, and Saturday because of the party.
I had a lot of fun with all my uncles and aunties. Here I am with Great Uncle Jeffrey and Great Auntie Annie. I didn't get a picture with them last time I saw them. Great Uncle Jeffrey is Grandpa's brother.
Here I am with Great Auntie Susanna and the elusive Great Uncle Richard.
And me with the guest of honor. You'd think with all these pictures of me and family that this dinner was about me. Little does Alyssa know, it IS all about me. I am the first grandchild after all. Sorry Alyssa!
Of course, Mommy had to hold Alyssa, so here's a picture of them two.
But back to me...
The birthday boy Uncle Mike and me. I always hear his voice on the phone. Now that I'm bigger, I will try to remember the face.
You can't tell, but I was playing with Uncle Eric. Every time he tilted his head, I'd do it too. Some times I'd even yell out loud so that he would play with me again.
Here are Uncle Dan, Auntie Katie, and Auntie Laura in the background...Auntie Katie is Auntie Jen's (Alyssa's mommy) sister. I had a ball with them. Auntie Katie found my tickle spot so I was just laughing up a storm with them.
Auntie April and Uncle Tim (Auntie Jen's brother) were also playing with me. I had my second wind with them.
When we returned from the dinner, Daddy wanted to slow things down a bit for me. I think Mommy and Daddy better get ready for some piano lessons.
On Sunday, I got a picture with Uncle Calvin before we left.
And finally, back in the bin for me. They almost put me through the machine!!! Just kidding.
Man, I don't know if I can top this past week. It was all very exciting. I did well on the plane ride down, and just ok on the plane ride up. It might be good to have a calm week though. Mommy hopes that with the time change and the crazy weekend, I will be able to get back to my normal sleep schedule. We'll see.
