My Birthday Party!

Well, it's been a heck of a year! This will be my last post in this blog. I'll start a new one with Mommy for my toddler years tomorrow, which is appropriate, since I am walking now. I'm ending my first year with 6 teeth, an 8 word vocabulary (Mama/Mom, Dada/Daddy/Dad, Hi, Cat, That/Dat, Yeah, No and Grandma), walking, nursing, learning parts of the body and wearing 12-18 month and 2T clothes.

My birthday party was so great! I had a lot of fun and I loved all my presents and a lot of my cards, too! I daintily ate my cake, much to Mommy's surprise and almost kept my dress clean (the park was just too dirty with my crawling to manage it!). All my kid friends came (except my cousins) and most of my adult friends were there. It was too bad my family from California couldn't have been here, but that's something I'm used to!

Anyway, Mommy made a slideshow, so you can feel like you were there! (it's big, so it may take a few minutes to load)

I went to a birthday party!

I went to Mariah's birthday party today. It was fun, except the pinata. That was SCARY! They decapitated that poor paper donkey! And then, they busted its head open! I cried both times. Mommy showed me it wasn't real, but it was still scary! Apparently, I'm having a birthday party myself, tomorrow. Well, as long as there's no pinatas, that's fine!

The last month of my first year is almost over!

This post is to celebrate me in pictures! Since this blog is coming to an end, I'm going to show you lots of pictures from the last month. My days are spent hanging out with Mommy and playing, sometimes with my friends, like Nicky and Zeke. I'm learning to walk and I can get several steps in before I fall now! I like to ask questions, even if I don't have the words for them yet and I get frustrated when I can't talk Mommy out of a 'no.' I'm becoming a little toddler now and my whole world and life is changing with it. I can (and do) ask for my teething tablets when I hurt; I'm still nursing strong and have no plans to stop anytime in the future. Mommy keeps asking me if I want a little brother or sister and I'm not sure what that means. I'd like to take my cousins home with me, though! I currently have an obsession with purses and bracelets and still a little with shoes--I'm very much a little girl! But I also like my transformers and balls (and I'll hoarde all the balls to myself!), so I'm pretty well rounded.

Walk, walk, walk!

Ugh, today wasn't a great day for the most part. Sure, I had lots of fun, but I got soooo tired and Mommy kept trying to put me down for a nap and I didn't want to take one! But instead of playing with me, she made me play by myself until I finally gave up and fell asleep on Daddy when he woke up from his nap. But sleeping is BORING! Anyway, it's been better since I woke up, I don't feel as cranky! In fact, I've been practicing walking! LOTS! I even managed to walk and turn and keep walking. Yay, me! Mommy says that if I keep it up, I'll be able to walk like a big girl in no time. But until then, it's no problem to just go from walk to crawl whenever I need to!

I like to push it, yeah, to push it!

If it's a chair, a cart (or anything on wheels) and I can get it to move, I love to push it! Here's a video of me pushing a cart at the store:

Not another of these blasted things!

Bah! That makes six of these sharp nuisances to break through my tender gums. I was so cranky today, nothing but nursing made me happy and half the time, THAT wasn't enough! Mommy was annoyed that I woke her up every hour this morning, but I was soooo sore! Besides, she didn't complain, she just knew what to do. I just heard her whining to Daddy later. Well, she understood when she found the tooth this evening.

Oh, and also, I've added a few new words to my vocabulary this past month. I've learned to say "yeah", "what", "dat" (that), and "'at" (Brat/Cat--I've said both, but often shorten it to just 'at).

5 steps!! TWICE!!

So Mommy kept putting me just a few steps away from her and I decided that I could do it. I'd taken my very first steps to Daddy and Mommy, back and forth just a few days ago, but today, I took several in a row! Twice!

Oh, and Mommy weighed me the other day and I was 21.8lbs! I lost the tape measure, though, so she can't really check my height.

Walk, Lilly, Walk!

Today, I had a lot of fun! We had a play date scheduled just for us babies (well, Zeke brought his big brother and big sister, but that's okay).
It was cool having Zeke and Nicky there to play with! Usually, I'm surrounded by older kids. Nicky stayed the longest and we enjoyed hanging out together, although we were both late for our naps and he got really tired!
I was pretty tired, but I'm good at hiding it. My motto is play "Play play, you can sleep another day!" Nicky and I pulled down books from the shelves, traded Thomas the Train toys and our Mommies sat and talked for two and a half hours!

Afterwards, we went to Sarah and Rebecca's house and I got annoyed because everyone kept thwarting me in my adventures in tasting everything from the floor! But then there was a really soft carpet and it was fun to snuggle on (although it was scary at first--but not scary like Sarah's dog! yikes!). Then we went home. Fun times!

Sneaky tooth!

I just started getting my fifth tooth today. It was a rough day in general and then my left lateral bottom incisor came in. Why do I always get a cold when I get a new tooth? Bleh.

Had a fun day!

Today I went to the water park with my cousins and we had a lot of fun! It was really nice outside--not too cold, not to hot. We had taken the kitten to the vet earlier and picked him up right before we went to the water park, but after we went to the anime/manga store. It was a really great day, though!

My First Concert

That was LOUD! This morning, we got up and did a bunch of running in the car, which ended in me getting a new onesie with one of my favorite bands on it--KoRn! Then, Aunt Neenee came over and we went on a long drive. That's okay, because she kept me entertained. After, we got out and we went to this loud place that told Mommy she couldn't take her camera--which made her upset, but she took pictures with her cell phone. She says if she ever figures out how to get them on the computer, I can post them here. Daddy went and watched the music while we hung out in some shade and had a picnic and some fun. Lots of people came by to tell me I was so cute and ask who I was there to see. Mommy told them that I was there to see KoRn. And one of the crew teased us and said I should go on stage with them! Mommy, aunt Neenee and Daddy all thought that would be great.

Later, I was getting really tired, but it was so exciting I couldn't fall asleep while we were standing. I couldn't see well enough, so Mommy climbed high so I could see better. I watched Evanescence for a while, then security made us get down. Finally, Mommy had tried walking around (and I felt better after she took me into the mister and then came back and nursed me again) and then put me in the stroller and I fell asleep. When I woke up, we were sitting in some seats and KoRn was playing my favorite song, Coming Undone!

I would have liked it better if I wasn't so sleepy, but I still got into the groove and danced away. Some loud guy (Daddy said he was drunk, whatever that is) was yelling about how cool I was (which I had heard all day). I got to nurse and dance for the rest of the concert and Mommy got up and danced with me at the end.

Then we left and went to Denny's, where I ate some crackers and cheese and played in the booth, then we went home. I'm ready for some play now, although Mommy and Daddy say they're exhausted! Old people, really!


The first time I went swimming, I didn't like it at all! But this time was great. I even tried to swim around, although sometimes I'd get too excited and get water in my face! I don't like that! But other than that, it was lots of fun and I got to be there with a bunch of other kids, many my age!

I don't know why, but I'm getting to go bare bottomed today! Mommy said we're going to work on late start elimination communication and this is the only way she can learn my signals. That's okay, because I love having my tushie free! But the strangest thing happened--water came out of me! I was doing what I do to make a diaper when suddenly I was all wet. Mommy said it came from me and cleaned it up and showed me that it's supposed to go in my potty. Well, who knew! That's what a diaper is? She said it's 'tinkle', not water, but it sure looked like water to me! She made a sound when I was making it--I've heard her make that sound when I'm on the potty making a diaper, too. I wonder what it means...
