I took some first steps this past Sunday so I am really busy refining my technique. Look for a video to come out soon highlighting my fancy footwork. Until then, share something you like with someone you love.

Mary reaching out to the camera with food all over her hand


When Aunt Corinne and Grandma were visiting Aunt Corinne helped teach me how to drink from a big girl’s glass. I like water but I like juice better. Later I learned a little self defense and how to use pressure points to keep daddy in line.

Mary drinking from a Guinness Beer glass that Aunt Corinne is holding.  The glass is filled with water. Mary laying on the ground with her legs straight out but bent at the waist.  She has a wet spot on the front of her shirt. Mary pushing on daddy's throat making him bend his head backwards.

More Fun With Aunt Corinne and Grandma

Here you can see that Aunt Corinne and I had fun playing princesses. In this picture she is wearing the crown. I didn’t like wearing it as much as grabbing it from her head and giving it back to her. I think that a Queen shouldn’t have to wear a crown if she doesn’t want to.

Grandma is in the background.Mary in the foreground of the picture but just as a blur because she is moving so fast.  You can see mommy and Aunt Corinne laughing to each other in the background. Here Grandma and I are having a whole lot of fun with the hippo. This is currently my favorite toy and I love to chase every one to catch them and then bang into them with the hippo. They try to get away but I am really fast. Sometimes you can’t even see me on camera because I move so fast that I am just a blur.

Running with Hippos

Her mouth is open, as usual, and she isn't wearing any pants. Today Grandma and I played around the house together. I walked with the hippo (my favorite activity ever). Grandma chased me around and I was really excitable. I ran this way and that. Then we went to the park by ourselves. She let me swing and it was really fun.

A Walk in the Park

Today I went to the park with my Grandma. I’ve been there before but she came all the way from Pennsylvania to visit me so I had to take her ‘out on the town’. We had some fun in the brown jeep that I like. I also chased some mysterious fingers on the little kids jungle gym.

I Am The Man in the Box

I got stuck in this box today. I knew that I could lift my foot out but I couldn’t quite get it all the way. I found that it was just much easier and more dignified to just walk around with it on my foot.

Biker Chick

I got to ride on a bike today. It has a wooden seat that you sit on and, if you are tall enough and your feet touch the ground, you can push it and ride around the room. Yes, I know football season is over but true fans never stop enjoying the game.
