Standing firm

I used to stand up by accident.
I would be holding something and not realize I had let go.
But now, I stand up on purpose.

For long periods of time.

I am super big!!!!

What's this?

Now that I am so big,
I can explore!
Hey, what's in here?

Look mommy,
I found some bowls for you!

Family visit

Last week everyone was here visiting me
(actually, they all left last week).
Reading with Grandpa.

Playing with Nana.

I was fascinated by my cousin.
My sissy's birthday was yesterday,
and I forgot to say Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday sissy!

8 months

I'm 8 months old now.
But, I went to the Aquarium with my family last Friday.
This is me, my daddy, my sissy, my bubby and my cousin.

Daddy and I looking at the sharks.

Why am I in here?

To celebrate being 8 months old,
I started climbing the stairs.
I am very big!

The beach

Yesterday I went to the beach for the very first time!
Nana, Grandpa, bubby, sissy and my cousin also came with us (me and mommy).

What is this stuff?

Mommy was afraid I would try to eat the sand.
But I'm a big girl!
I touched it, but didn't eat it!

The water was very cold and very, very rough.
I didn't like it very much.

Mostly I played on the blanket with Nana.
But it was a good day.
(don't worry, mama put lots of sunscreen on me.)

Standing tall

I am so big!
I can pull myself up using just about anything!
The kitchen chairs.

Hi mom!
I'm on the steps!
(but not climbing up them yet.)

Now I can play piano whenever I want!
I've been practicing because
Nana, Grandpa and my cousin are coming to visit.
I want to show them how good I am!

The other day we went to the park.
Mommy put me in this strange thing and pushed me.
It made me swing!
It was so much fun!
What is this thing?

Daddy pushing me.

Mommy pushing me.
We went again yesterday and I just laughed and laughed.
Then I tried to eat the swing and mommy took me out.
She's not very much fun!

Guess what?

We're building a house!!!!!
Mommy and daddy decided the place we live in now
doesn't have enough room for me to run around.
So, we're building a nice big house.
This is our new house!
When they started, it was just a grassy lot.

This is my room!
Bubby and sissy will have their own rooms too.

This is my giant playroom!
It's so big, mama can't get the whole thing in one picture.

We hope to be fully moved in before my 1st birthday!
