Saturday, August 30, 2003Bottles and Sippie Cups
As you can see in this video, I am learning how to drink out of a sippie cup. Also, I can now hold my own bottle now:
Daddy's birthday isn't until after he goes to the Texas football game, so I had to give him his gift early:

Tuesday, August 26, 2003Daycare
Yesterday was my first day of school at Children's World in Austin. I am with the 6 to 12 month infants and they are really smart. I already learned how to hold my own bottle to feed myself (I have been fooling Mommy and Daddy for a couple of months now into thinking that I couldn't do that yet, but now they are on to me). Today I learned how to feed myself a graham cracker. There are a pair of twins in my class who are really rough with each other and one kept stealing my juice while Mommy was there to pick me up! All in all it has been really fun to play with the other kids and go for buggy rides outside. I don't even miss Mommy and Daddy much yet! I am excited about tomorrow - I go for the whole day, because Mommy starts school in the morning. Daddy gets to pick me up and then we get to hang out together!
Yesterday, I was so tired that when Daddy took me for a walk, I fell asleep:
Today though, I had enough energy to help Daddy do the dishes after dinner:

I got new shoes Saturday, and when we got home I immediately stood on my own:
Mommy got a cool cover for my bath faucet so I don't bang my head on it:

Mommy and Daddy thought it was soooooo funny:
Also, now I am starting to climb on things. I am trying to get on top of one of my toys:

Tuesday, August 19, 2003Solid Food
Mommy has started giving me lots of solid foods, like diced pears and apples. I am also eating baby crackers. Since I have teeth on the top and bottom, I can crunch them to make the big pieces into smaller pieces! However, as you can see in this video, I am not used to foods with texture. I am used to my food being all mashed up for me!
Here is a picture of me as I looked back at Mommy and Daddy after crawling all the way across the living room:

Monday, August 18, 2003Sleeping
I haven't been sleeping so well lately. I get hungry about 4:00 a.m. sometimes. Then I can't get back to sleep without my blanket. But that means I get to nap for a long time in the daytime:
Daddy took more video of me! Mommy and I are playing with one of my toys.

Wednesday, August 13, 2003Fun!
Daddy and I were playing the other night, and he wrapped me up in a blanket and I had so much fun:
Then I found an old iron in the kitchen. It was my great grandmother's. It doesn't plug into the wall like Mommy's does, so I guess it's REALLY old!

Sunday, August 10, 2003Crawling!
So much to tell!
Last Monday night was an exciting night for me. Saturday, I had figured out how to sit up all by myself from laying on my tummy or my back. I was also trying to get this crawling thing figured out - but I just couldn't get going forward. Then I was working on pulling up. So Monday night it all came together! I got from my back where mommy laid me when she put me down and over to standing in my crib hollering for her to come see. I was so excited even though it was the middle of the night, but Mommy didn't seem too happy to see me (could it be that it was really dark outside and she seemed like she wanted to sleep?). On Tuesday when I did it again during the day, she was very excited for me!
I finally started crawling forward. I was a bit shaky at first, but I am figuring out how to do it better. Yesterday, while I was over at Grandma's, I pulled myself up in a door frame. When Daddy looked again, I was standing all by myself without holding onto the doorframe. This evening, Daddy layed on the floor with me and I crawled all over him! It was a lot of fun for me, but sometimes when I grabbed Daddy's hair to stand up, he didn't seem to be having much fun.
Daddy has finally taken interest in the video camera, so here is my first video! It's a big file (7.5MB), so if you have dial up it will take awhile. Maybe Daddy can get some video of me crawling this week.
