I like standing. I have ever since I was little. Usually someone has to hold my hands, but lately I kind of like to stand without someone holding on. Mom says I have to remember to hold on to something or I’ll fall down. It’s tough to remember to hang on when you see something you want to grab though. Besides, I see other people standing without holding on. Mom mentioned some saying about having to crawl before you can walk, but I’m not so sure about that. I’ve been trying out the hands and knees position, but it’s not nearly as fun as standing. I still need help to stand though, that’s one drawback, but if someone conveniently sits me on their lap next to something I can grab, I can almost get up on my own. Soon I won’t have to stay where I’m put and I can go after those bright things and the doggies.

Sometimes when I get put in my car seat we go places I know. Places like Hannah’s house, or home or this one restaurant where the waiters talk to me in a funny way that makes me laugh because their tongue rolls all around in their mouth. Sometimes I have to sit in the car seat for a long time and when I get out, we’re in a new place. On Sunday, we went to a new place, but I saw my friends there. I also saw a whole bunch of flowers all around. It was cool. But then we went home, and I noticed a bird in the sky. Have you ever seen little creatures just flying around? I know I’m little, but I can’t fly. It’s really an amazing thing, jaw-dropping actually.
When my friends build forts I like to climb in and play too. It gets really funny when they start making sound effects. Like whoosh, boom and laser pa-choo pa-choo noises. I laughed at their blast-off rocket noises while I was in the box/rocket wearing a headband that mom made me out of some paper I found to crinkle.
My friend Oliver is very smart. If I ever want to know about something all I have to do is ask him. He said that we live in Golden, which is next to Denver, just like his secret lair is next to my secret castle. He really explains things well.
Thank you Hannah for taking these pictures of my adventures.
Happy Easter everyone! We had a very nice weekend. We walked with Oliver and Max and their Grandpa and Hannah to the park for an Easter Egg hunt. I found an egg and then I found these really great wood chips that were even better! Sometimes I try to do what Max does, but he doesn’t always like it when I touch him and he tells on me. He was afraid of the Easter Bunny though, I wasn’t. I wasn’t even very impressed with it. I think I make a better Easter Bunny.
Grandma Kim guessed exactly right. I was in the 70th percentile for height. Dad and Grandma Susan were very close though. I will send Grandma Kim her prize from me soon, but if you’re sad that you didn’t win I’ll give you one more chance to guess. What percentile do you think my head circumference is? Your hint is that it’s lower than my height percentile. We were waiting for the doctor so long that I got sleepy, but I did a good job being brave when they gave me shots.
It snowed today, but Mom says it will get warm again and that we have to practice for this weekend. There is going to be an Easter Egg hunt in the park on Saturday and I’m going with my friends to go find eggs. I’m not sure why you have to find eggs, or what you do with them once you find them. But I do know you have to look high and low and in all the sneakiest places you can think of where an egg might hide. Last weekend it was nice and warm, so we went outside to practice. I think I did a pretty good job watching out for those eggs.
I thought eggs were supposed to be white and they came from chickens. I saw chickens once before. I am very confused because now eggs are colored and they come from rabbits. Do the colors make them taste better? I see bunnies in the front yard sometimes, but I’ve never seen colored eggs. I guess mom was right, the eggs really are sneaky about where they hide.
It’s spring! That means that there are pretty flowers in the trees, the grass is getting green and mom takes me outside to fly. Or sit in the grass. But it is very pretty out. The only thing missing is Dad. He’s away in Chicago doing presentations and work things. But mom and I miss him, especially in the morning when mom is grumpy and I just want to play.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I’m 6 months old today, or 1/2. I was so busy celebrating Daddy’s birthday on Monday (he’s 30 and that’s REALLY old) and mom’s birthday on Friday, that me turning 1/2 almost went by without mention. I like that my half birthday is almost the same as mom and dad’s birthday. It’s a whole birthday week! Here’s a picture of me, with my boppy pillow so you can compare what I look like every month and see how much I grow. I like to eat my toes, but socks get in the way, which is why I have to take them off every time they get put on my feet.
I am going to go see the doctor with Daddy on Friday, so if you want, you can guess how tall I am or at least what percentile my height will be. Let’s see. I think I will send a card or something nice to people who guess and get close.
I still really like my birds. They’re one of the first things I ever noticed about the world. I still keep an eye on them though. You never know, they might bop you in the head if you don’t watch. I think they must be trying to sass me because I’m always telling them things and laughing at them. If they sass me though, I grab them and pull on them and stick ’em in my mouth. I don’t eat them though because they taste yucky. Blech!
