Thanksgiving day with the family

I spent my First Thanksgiving with all of our family. I got to see GreatAunt Donna, GreatAunt Kathy, GreatUncle Darrel, Cousins Kate, Josh, Carlos, Alvin, Chris, Robin, Loreal, Larry, and Christopher AND Grandma B and GreatGrandma! Whew! I think I got everyone. I had so much fun playing with everyone and walking everywhere I could. Mommy even let me eat some turkey, some mashed potatoes and some stuffing

Here's me and GreatUncle Darrel and the money he gave me for
my college fund....

So Sleepy sitting here with Loreal and Robin

I LOVED playing with Larry's tiger marionette!

My First Thanksgiving Day Parade!

We're on our way....

I Loved watching all the big balloons go by and listening to all the marching bands! I even got to see my 2nd cousin Tony playing in the Rockwood marching band. He was playing the tuba!!

Just me and daddy staying warm while mommy takes our picture.

That parade wore me out!

Many things to be thankful for this year...

We have many things to be thankful for this year. Many times people think Thanksgiving is just an extra day off or a time to eat until they can't eat anymore or a day to watch countless football games, but this year, Thanksgiving means so much more to us!

We have an amazing son to be thankful for this year. We are so thankful that we have a healthy active son.

We are thankful for all of our family and friends who have kept us in their prayers this year. Without all of your prayers, who knows what would have happened.

We are thankful that I (Rebecca) am here to enjoy this thanksgiving! The stray bullet that injured me in September could have done much more damage then it did. I am so very thankful that I can walk and have no lasting effects.

We thank you God for all your continued blessings this year.

7 teeth...can you believe it???

I have 7 teeth now..can you believe it? I have 4 teeth on the top now and 3 on the bottom. Mommy and daddy have tried to get a picture of all my teeth , but I only show them when they don't have the camera ready. Maybe when we take family pictures Friday,I'll show everyone!

More Silly Faces!

Whatcha doing over there?

I can't believe you dressed me like this!

All done!

First time eating Gnocchi

I have decided that I like to eat the same foods as mommy and daddy. Last week, daddy made gnocchi for us. It was very very yummy! I even had to feed some to Homer after I fed myself that is. I made a mess everywhere. But mommy and daddy didn't seem to mind...they just laughed and took pictures...Hmmm I wonder if it will always be like that........

My babysitters

Since mommy is working on her masters and has to do a practicum, mommy and daddy had to find a babysitter for me. On Monday, mommy's friend Dusty comes over and watches me. I have so much fun playing with Dusty. Her and I even took a nap together the other day. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, Aunt Nicole comes to play and she brings Maribeth and Emi. At first I wasn't sure what to think of the girls, but now I think that I might actually like them. Although the first time Aunt Nicole, we were all quite a handful for her. I like playing with all my babysitters!

Me? A bear?

I wish someone would have told me how much it hurt to cut 4 teeth at one time!! For the last week, I have been working on getting 4 of my top teeth. Mommy and daddy have tried giving me Ibuprofen, Tylenol, teething tablets, orajel and nothing is helping. Mommy and daddy can see my teeth coming in. I hope they hurry up and come in because I want to go back to being my happy self. On top of my teeth, I've had a runny nose. I HATE getting my nose wiped. Mommy has found that giving me Sudafed helps with that. if that isn't enough for mommy and daddy, I have decided that I don't like my crib anymore. I wake up sometime between 2am and 4am and cry and cry and cry until mommy or daddy come in a take me out. They think that they are sneaky because they will rock me until I close my eyes and then they try to put me back in my bed. But I know that trick and I open my eyes and stand up and cry and cry and cry some more until finally they just take me to bed with them. I love being close to mommy and daddy, but I think that they wish I would sleep in my own bed again!

Today I took 5 steps all by myself. I walked from the china cabinet to mommy and daddy on the couch. Mommy and daddy were so excited! I thought it was pretty neat too. Not too much longer and I will be walking everywhere!! It happened so fast, that mommy and daddy couldn't even get the camera out. I'm sure they will get plenty of pictures soon.
