14 month birthday! and other things

Happy 14 months birthday to me!!  Can you believe I'm that old already?  Mommy and Daddy can't. It's been rather uneventful in terms of visitors or places to visit.  Even the paparazzi has slowed down in following me everywhere.  I've been so busy getting into things.  Did I tell you I broke 3 of Grandma's plates and Rocky's water bowl?  I like to fling things.

Mommy found this "hat" of hers at Grandma's house.  I was pretty content to wear it, at least until it fell off my head and then I didn't want it back on.

My parents decided to give me a haircut.  WARNING!  BEWARE OF BAD HAIRCUT!  Mommy started off at the back, decided that I was moving too much and moved to the top...a place that she can manage easier.  Daddy decided to try his hand at the front.  Mom warned him not to cut straight across and Daddy said he knows.

So here he is.  Once Mommy saw what he was doing, she started crying.  She couldn't believe what Daddy did to my hair.  Daddy didn't know what was wrong until Mommy said it was too short.  Mommy kept saying sorry to me.

I think my new name is Friar Elliot.  I don't know what that means though.

It's uneven, but Mommy wouldn't allow Daddy to cut any more off.  Mommy ended up trimming the sides later so I don't look so much like someone named Spock.  When Grandma saw the haircut on Sunday, she was very upset.  Oh well.  Hair grows back.  And I'm comfortable with my looks that I can sport any look.  At least, that's what I say.

On a happier note, I like to wiggle wiggle wiggle when I'm happy.

Here I am after I got up and walked away from Daddy when he was changing my diaper.

Mommy and Daddy also let me go down some slides.  Here's just one video of one of the slides I went down by myself.  Since it's the first time I've been down by myself, I'm not sure if I'm enjoying it.  There were a couple of times though, that Daddy saw me smiling.

We went to Costco to run some errands and look what I got to try!

Just kidding...though Mommy did let me try some relish (pretty tasty) and I got to eat some of the bun.

I also got to see my cousin Alyssa and Uncle Mike and Auntie Jen again!  I'm much more interested in her this time around and she's definitely more aware of me than 6 weeks ago when I saw her last.

I liked playing with her and she was talking a lot to me.  I just didn't understand what she said.  I also am better at giving kisses (head bumps).

 Mommy was trying to get a picture of me to mark my 14 month birthday, but I was moving around too much.

With all the rainy weather, I've been cooped up for a while.  Sunday was dry for the most part, so Mommy and Daddy took me for a walk.  I had to bundle up though.

I'm getting so good at walking too!

Until next time.  Hopefully it won't take me a month to post again.

13 months birthday!

Hello all.  I turned 13 months old at the end of February!  No more monthly pictures, but I do have some photos for your perusal.

I'm getting better and sturdier with my walking.  This was taken a week or so ago.  I'm much more stable now than shown here.

Did I mention that I growl at the vacuum cleaner?  It still scares me, but whenever I walk by the hallway closet where that monster is hidden, I growl at it...but only when the closet door is open.

We had a play date with Genevieve on Sunday.  She's so cool.  She let me play with all her toys.

The best thing was her ball pit.  Well, it was her pack and play filled with balls.

I really enjoyed relaxing in it.

Did I mention I like yogurt?

I also still enjoy my baths, though lately, I'm not as willing to go take a bath.  Maybe I'm scared of going down the drain.  I also like to splash.  Last time Mommy got all soaked because I was splashing away.

Sorry this post is short. I'm much too busy exploring so I don't have as much time to post.  Until next time!
