Tuesday, December 30, 2003Sunday Duds
Grandpa Chomel and Melody gave me my first outfit that has a tie. I got to wear it to Christmas Day Mass! The church nursery was closed, so I got to go with Mommy, Daddy, and Grandma Jenschke. I was a little fussy at times because you have to be very still and quiet for almost an hour!
I am transitioning to the toddler room at school. I spent the whole day in there today. I took a nap on my new mat instead of in a crib. We sit at tables to have lunch and snacks instead of a high chair. Hopefully my friend Jackson will be over to join me soon!

Monday, December 22, 2003Big Weekend!
This weekend we celebrated my birthday with all of my grandparents, aunts, and uncles! My good friend Jackson was also there! It was so much fun, and was a beautiful day Saturday. Here I am out in the backyard playing with Uncle Chris:

Jackson had chocolate:
My cousins spent the whole weekend with us. Saturday morning my cousin Alyssa made pancakes, and Sunday morning she made cornbread muffins. I got to have some of both!
Sunday night we went to Uncle Chris and Aunt Melly's house to exchange presents with Grandma Tucker and Great Grandma Pribble. Grandma had gotten me a Santa suit for my birthday, and I got to wear it when we opened presents:
Opening presents is new for me, but I am beginning to get the idea:
Wow! I got a drum to make LOTS of noise!

Monday, December 15, 2003Birthday
Mommy, Daddy, and I had a little birthday celebration for me. Daddy fixed one of my favorite meals, fish sticks and tater tots!
Then we had my birthday cake. Daddy brought it home from the grocery store where he works:
Mommy helped me blow out my candle:
My first bite of my cake:
Then I made a mess:
Mommy and Daddy got me a gift! I tried very hard to open my gift, but Mommy had to help me out:
Once we got it unwrapped, I couldn't wait until it was out of the box to play with it:
My new activity center has so many things to play with, but I like the top part best right now!

I am 1 year old today! I am going to the photographer to have my picture taken. When Daddy gets home from work, he is going to fix a nice dinner for me. Then we get to have cupcakes!

Thursday, December 11, 2003I have discovered new games!
The game here is to get as many toys out of my toybox at once as possible:
And here the game is to feed all of my cereal snack to Oscar:
Mommy and Daddy like some of my new games better than others, like putting the ring on the tower:

Monday, December 01, 2003Tooth #9
This one was a toughy. My first eight teeth came in without much fussing, but this is my first molar, and it hurt really bad. I woke up from my evening nap screaming. Dinner didn't help me feel better, so I just screamed and screamed. Mommy and Daddy were worried about me, so Mommy went digging in my mouth. Sure enough, there it was, just beneath my gum! My first molar. Daddy went and got a table spoon. Uh oh. I wasn't sure what he intended on doing with a table spoon, all I knew is that I didn't want to find out! But Daddy pressed the back of the spoon on my gum right where my new tooth was so he could help me cut it in. It hurt pretty bad, and I cried for about five or ten minutes. After that, I was back at my toy box playing!
Also, my digestive "issues" have been worked out. After about 6-8 weeks of intermittent diarrhea, Mommy and Daddy were getting worried, and wanted to get to the bottom of the problem. Although I never acted sick, and never got dehydrated or lost weight, Mommy knew that something wasn't right with me. So she refused to let anyone tell her it was "just a stomach bug and not to worry"! My doctor suggested that perhaps back when I had my stomach bug, my digestive enzymes got out of whack. In order to bring them back into whack, I needed to take some good bacteria with my food. Mommy took me over to where Daddy works and we got Baby’s Jarro-Dophilus. I also switched to a soy formula until my digestive system heals. We started that last Wednesday, and sure enough, things are back to normal!
I have a few pictures from my Thanksgiving weekend. Here I am with Grandpa Tvrdik in the swing at his house:

Grandpa Chomel held me for a little bit at the dinner table:
Uncle Chris and I had a good time playing:
