51 weeks and unassisted standing!

I'm 51 weeks this week and there are a lot of pictures in this post. Hi everyone!

 Mommy put me here. It's kind of fun!



I'm pretty strong now.  I pushed Elliot's tricycle over.  Now I'm inspecting the damage.


Look what I got my hands into at Grandma's house.

 Grandma was letting me try a golden kiwi.  It was yummy.  When I finished the half, I started yelling for more but I didn't get any.  I got upset about that.

 Hey, maybe we can be a family duo, Julia.

 Last weekend, I went to Great America for the first time to celebrate Genevieve's birthday (as well as a belated one for me).  Here we are on a couple of rides together.

There was a play area where it had this digger.  After Daddy showed me how to do it, I wouldn't leave.

 Here's a slide I went down.  Peek-a-boo!

I got to take a picture with Snoopy too!

Here are a couple of pictures of Daddy and me on rides.
This was a roller coaster ride.  The first round, I was great.  The second round, I cried the whole time.  This picture is obviously of me before.

 Well, lucky you, Elliot.  During the week, Mommy takes me to the park, as always.  Some times, I just like to check out the scenery and chill out.

 Other times, I get tired.

Speaking of tired, I guess I didn't take a good enough nap at school so I fell asleep on the way home.

 On Friday, we had a play date with Aidan and Alex.

 It was fun to play with Alex again.

Mommy introduced me to peaches a few weeks ago and now I LOVE them. 
I love blueberries too.  I just put four into my mouth.


 Look what I'm doing more and more often now.  Standing without holding onto anything!  I'm also getting better at pushing myself to a stand off of an elevated object on the floor (versus pulling myself up on something).

 Grandpa was trying to get me to take my first step.  Sorry.  Didn't work.
This is me after I shoved a big piece of peach into my mouth.  Yummy.  Seems to be a common occurrence nowadays.  What can I say?
We hope you enjoyed the pictures.  One more week and Julia is going to turn 1!!

50 Weeks and no naps

I'm 50 weeks old this week and I got included in some fun.  Normally I'm napping when Elliot gets to play on this, but lately, I've been resisting my naps.  And look at the result!  I should resist my naps more!  I didn't want to get up when it was over.

 I've been getting into Elliot's books too.  But it's hard to read with my hair in the way.


  We forgot to post this a few weeks ago.  It's Big Red at Carsland!  I was soo happy to meet him.

I like going to the park with Mommy.

 A reason why Mommy takes me to the park is to wear me out so that I will nap.  Whatever the reason, yay!

When Julia finally does sleep, I get to have Mommy time.  Here I am showing her my milk mustache.  I look funny!

Sorry for the short post!  We'll take more pictures next week.

49 Weeks and into everything

I'm 49 weeks old and as the title states, I'm getting into everything.  Doesn't this look familiar?  Apparently, this was something Elliot liked to do when he was my age.

 I'm soooo happy to eat!!!

Now that I'm mobile and pulling up on things, Elliot's not too happy with me.  Here I am with his tricycle.

 I wonder what's in these bins...

 Look at these magna-tiles I like to fling around, Mommy.

Mommy found this skirt that she thought I should try on.

What you don't see here is that I just crawled out from under that chair.

We went to Happy Hollow again and look what I'm doing!  Excavating dinosaur bones!

Of course, I had to ride my favorite ride.  This time I went on the fire engine.

 One day we were waiting for Auntie Karen to come so I decided to drive.

 Mommy took us to CuriOdyssey too.  This is the most time I've spent at this area.

 I'm making buildings.

There's a little playground outside CuriOdyssey.  Look at me!
Now that I'm bigger, I get to ride on the big swings at the park by our house!
It was a lot of fun this week!  Hope you enjoyed the post! See you again soon!

11 Months and a special visitor

I'm 11 months old this week.  Here are my monthly pictures.


This paper says I'm 11 months old.  I concur.


We have some pictures to put up from last week's trip that are just trickling in.  Here is the first one of our whole family.

Uncle Mike took this picture of me and Daddy on the caterpillar ride.  You can see aunties Nat, Colleen, and baby Joshua behind me.

The last day we were in Arcadia, we met up with Great Uncle James and Great Auntie Cindy for breakfast.

Now that I'm mobile, I try to get into everything.

I'm leaving behind a trail.


See?  Into everything.


Auntie Karen came all the way from Boston to meet me.  Well, actually, she came to visit a lot of friends, but I say she came just for me.

That's not true, Julia.  She came to see me.  See?  She's reading me a story from the book she bought me.

One time I wanted Mommy to hold me.  Julia did too.  So Daddy thought Mommy could hold all three of us.  I wasn't too happy with Daddy though.  I was trying to push him away.  Mommy's not strong enough to hold all of us, Daddy.

I like being silly.

I see you, Mommy!

Sorry for the late post.  Mommy forgot what day it was and when she did remember, it was really late and she was too tired to help us post.  Hope you enjoyed it though.
