Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to my Daddy!!! We had a weekend of fun family times. On Saturday we went to the Anamosa State Park where we spent the entire day outside having a picnic. Mommy and Daddy were worried about how I was going to do but I suprised them and had a blast. I walked around with my push toy most of the time and loved exploring all of the new sights and things to feel. I loved playing in the grass and touching the tree that was next to us. All of my cousins and aunts and uncles were on hand. It had been a long time since we were all together. I was very shy at first but then I came out of my shell. On Sunday we hung out just Daddy, Mommy, and me to have some quiet family time. We watched the Cubs game and did some errands. Below are some pictures from my first outting to the park. Enjoy and I'll be sure to post again soon.
Hm, this is a tree? I liked feeling this.
My cousin Brittany and I. Aren't we cute?

My Uncle Jeffers (Jeff) and I. He is so good to me.

So tired after all of the fresh air and excitement.

I spent most of my day walking around with my toy. Here is my cousin Tye keeping an eye on me.
This goes with the next few pictures as you will see I go from sweet to crazed back to sweet.

Starting to freak out.

Lots of Firsts

Well I have been having lots of fun over the last couple of weeks. I had a few firsts as well. My Grandpa Tom and Grandma Lee Ann came and babysat me and we had a BLAST! I wore them out but they also wore me out but oh so much fun. I can't wait to have them watch me again soon. I also made it to the pool for the first time. At first I cried but then a few minutes later I was crawling all over the place and splashing. I ended up there for almost 2 1/2 hours!!! I am a water baby for sure. I can't wait to get back in and have some more fun. Another huge first is I am starting to take steps. I love pushing my walking toy all over the place and over the past week have started going on my own. Mom and Dad are anxious to see how quickly this turns into me going on my own all of the time. My main issue is I like to run instead of walk :) I am also 10 1/2 months old now and can't wait for my 1st Birthday next month!!! It's going to be so much fun and it's going to be at the lake which is even better as that's what I love to do. Well below are some new pics of me and my adventures and I'll be sure to check in again very soon.

Me in the water splashing around.
I loved crawling through the water fountain.

I'm telling Grandpa all about it.

I'm 10 months old!

Well time is flying by. I am full of energy at all times and am a super happy little boy. I have been doing lots of new things and trying all kinds of new foods. So far the only thing I don't like is eggs which is pretty good as my Mommy is a very picky eater. I guess I'm taking after Daddy when it comes to food. I still love water a LOT so I can't wait to get to the pool. I have used my little one when I can but I want to go into the big one. I also can't wait to go to the beach and on Uncle Jeffers' boat. Snoopy still doesn't like me but oh well I enjoy chasing him as I have become a super fast crawler. I even walk around a lot now when I am hanging on to things. This past weekend I took 3 steps to Grandpa Tom!!! It was quite the event as everyone clapped and smiled at me. I went to my step-uncle's graduation party and met so many new people. I had tons of fun and met my new best friend, Great-Grandpa Don. He and I played catch with a napkin, yes a napkin, for over 20 minutes. As you can see I can have fun with anything. The weekend was very hot! Over 90 degrees and a lot of our events were outside. I also went to the BBQ and Blues festival in town and was excited for the petting zoo but they closed just as we were arriving as the animals were too hot. It was still fun though but I'm sure next year it will be more fun as I'll be able to do a lot more. I am also battling dual ear infections again so I haven't been my usual self but I'm getting there. In two months I'll be 1!!! Wow that is so awesome and I can't wait. I'll have an awesome party and it is going to be at the lake. Anyway that's all for now. I'm sure I'll be walking very soon and will have lots to update over the coming weeks.
Love you!!

I love to kick and this is the face I make while doing it :)

So tired.

This toy is so much fun. I like to crawl back and forth.

Relaxing while watching my Baby Einstein DVD.
