February 21st, 2011

Hello all!  It's been a couple of weeks so it's about time I posted again.  I know you're missing the weekly updates.  Sorry.

First off, a couple of weeks ago, I saw my cousin Alyssa again.  Her family was on their way to Pensacola, Florida and they stopped by San Francisco first.  Alyssa is a happy baby.  I think she wants to stand, like me.

Next Uncle Juan visited again with Daddy.  I'm totally used to him as I don't even hesitate to lean over to him to be carried.

This past weekend, we had some special guests from Boston come visit.  Uncle Willy and Auntie Karen (!) came again and stayed with us.  So on Saturday, we had a quick potluck with some people who wanted to visit with them.

Here I am playing with Zach.

I was feeling under the weather so I didn't play with Lucas, but he had a good time with my toys.

The next day, Auntie Monnette, Uncle Brian, and my buddy Alex came over to visit with all of us.  Alex seems unsure of me, now that I'm standing as tall as he is.  I think he's used to me being on the ground and immobile.

Slowly but surely, I'm catching up.  He's running around though, so I still have a ways to go.

Finally some pictures with our house guests.  Here I am with Auntie Karen!  She was so happy to finally meet me.  We spent lots of time together this weekend.

And a picture with both Uncle and Auntie.

After everyone left, I was off wandering around the house.  I went looking for a ball when I crawled under one of our counter stools...

...and got stuck.  Get me out!!!

Until next time!

Happy Chinese New Year! Jan. 31st-February 6th

Yes, yes, I know I said I wouldn't be posting weekly, but it was a special event week so I had to post.  Happy Chinese New Year everyone!  It's the year of the Rabbit this year. 

I also had my one year check-up this week.  Mommy won a boba drink from Daddy because she accurately guessed my weight.  I'm at the 45th percentile in weight 22lbs, 6oz; almost 75th percentile in height at 30.25"; and again off the growth chart curve for my head circumference at 50cm.  No wonder I have so many hats.

Mommy and Daddy bought a 4T/5T hat for me (typically, for 4-5 year olds).  Mommy thinks I should fit into this for at least a year (they hope).

Speaking of hats, Daddy decided to put me in one that Mommy knitted a while ago.  I fit this when I was 3 months old.  Now look at it on me now!  Mommy thinks it looks like a yamaka.  What's that?

So I saw my Great Uncle Jeffrey, Great Auntie Annie, and Uncles Jeffrey Jr and William this week.  They came up to visit for Chinese New Year.  Here's a shot with everyone.

One with Uncle Jeffrey.

And one with Uncle William.

Sorry for the short post.  Until next time!
