Little Scrapper

I am now two months old and I am a tough little baby. I weighed in at 10 pounds 13 ounces (25% percentile), but as I showed the pediatrician my exercise routine - baby push ups and turning my head to look around - she commented I was the strongest baby she has seen yet!!!!!!! I may be little, but I pack a tough punch - mommy knows this well since I was punching her long before I was born, and I currently punch her as I eat- multi-tasking food and exercise. Mommy does it, eating while she takes me for a walk. Yesterday she was eating, walking, and reading the newspaper......

Mommy actually bravely took me to the grocery store ALONE for the first time this morning. I screamed the entire car ride - I have baby road rage and don't like traffic!!!! Then I screamed in the parking lot, mommy almost aborted the mission at this point, but once I was in the ERGO - thank God for inspiring the ERGO designer- I was calm and looking around the store the whole time. I fell asleep at the checkout line.

Things to Smile About

The Great Cry off is coming to an end and I am actually smiling for the camera. I am even sleeping for 7 whole hours at one time most nights since last Friday!!!!!

The weather has been nicer so I get to go out for more walks and listen to the birdies.

The Great Cry Off

So it is OBVIOUS I am a true Californian.  Mommy is from Idaho by way of Oregon (she still calls herself an Oregonian on sabbatical-but she is an Idahoan) and Daddy is a true Oregonian born and raised.  They can handle the rain, but I am a Californian and I HATE the rain.  It has been raining here for awhile and I cried and cried and cried......  I wanted to go outside and hear the birds and feel the sun in the Ergo, but I couldn't.  So then mommy cried and cried and cried too....  We had a contest to see who would stop first, it was a toss up.

Luckily the sun is shining now and I am in a good mood. We went on a walk this morning in the sun and ever since I have been happy....  I am even taking a N-A-P... (that is why mommy can blog-you can tell the fussy days by the lapse).  Unfortunately the rain is coming back, hopefully I can get used to it.

Yesterday I had a big day....  I saw where mommy worked:)  It was a lot of fun. Everyone thought I was super cute and I got lots of love:)

My Furry Big Brothers

So you may wonder how am I doing with the kitties or rather, how are they doing with me. The truth is everyone is doing well. The cats aren't jealous of me and don't mind when I cry. It is amazing what THEY sleep through. They even put on a circus the other night during my 3 am feeding just for me..... Jack tried to jump to the top of the bookshelf and fell BEHIND it. Turk knocked over a chair trying to jump up on it, then chased around his mousy toy. Al just sat in front of the heater and watched too. They are sooooo entertaining at 3 am, I don't know why mommy doesn't enjoy the show.

Jack and Al are very good at inspecting all my stuff to make sure it is safe and comfortable for me.... Jack will supervise play time too.

Turk will watch me in the swing, but is careful to keep 5 feet away from me at all times. Mommy thinks he also inspected my crib, but he is scared of mommy so she never saw it.

I don't think these are high enough, if I can get in can he get out???
Is this mattress up to code??? Feels a little soft.

Yep, this is comfortable, do you mind if I take a nap here if you aren't using it??

That toy looks fun, and that lion looks like MY stuffed mouse. HMMMMM.....

More Elusive than the Himalayan Snow Leopard

That is how mommy is describing my smile right now..... She has seen it, but has yet to photograph it. I have been smiling since birth at the end of a good meal, food makes my world go round, but yesterday I smiled BEFORE a meal, and when mommy was shaking the mobile in my crib. She almost had it on video, but when she finished recording she got the dreaded "MEMORY STICK FULL" error message. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! HA HA, silly mommy you'll have to wait to capture my smile........

A Hi for my Adoring Fans


Listen carefully and you can hear me say "hi" it will be awhile before I know I am saying Hi, but just go with me here:)

My New Circus Act

Grandma Carol let the cat out of the bag, so I needed to deliver.  Yes, at a mere 6 weeks old I can rollover!!!!  God have mercy on mommy's soul, what  will I be doing next?????  How long until I am crawling and into everything????

Thanks Auntie Amanda and Henry for sharing the Whoozit with me!!!!
I love smacking it around during my play time.

I am getting bigger everyday, yesterday was an "eat" day. All I did was eat. Today is a "sleep" day (aka thank god mommy can take a shower and eat day). Yesterday mommy couldn't get away to shower until daddy came home, which turned out to be good as while I was eating right before daddy came home I "leaked"on mommy twice and threw up (not spit up!!!) on her twice. I went through 2 outfits, luckily mommy didn't change her clothes in between incidents so she only went through one, it was a three course (outfits) meal:)
