Baby OUT!

Our dear friend April is about to have a baby (her third boy!). I understand that the baby is in her tummy (and sometimes insist that Mommy or Daddy must also have a baby in their tummies, to which they explain that it is just all tummy and then they eat a salad for dinner). When I saw April, I insisted she take the "baby out!" I can't wait to hold him!

Welcome, Neighbors

A few weeks after we moved in to the new house, new neighbors also moved in next door. Mommy and I decided to make them some cookies this afternoon. When she turned around from getting the pan, I was licking the beater while still attached to the mixer. This batch of cookies ended up staying home...Yeah for me and Daddy!

My Treasure Chest

One of my favorite things to do is get in Mommy's jewelry box and play with her trinkets. She ever-so-cleverly hid it at the bottom of her closet when we moved, but look what I just discovered!

Biker Girl

This past weekend thousands of bikers from all over came to Austin for the annual Republic of Texas Biker Ralley (a.k.a. The ROT Ralley). After seeing them all over town, I got on my "motor bike" at home. Mommy says this is as close to a motorcycle as she ever wants me to get.

Dance/Gymnastics Performance

It was the end of the spring semester at the Little Gym. Even though I have only been attending a few weeks, I was ready for the end-of-session performance. With all our parents watching, we performed a ballet and a tap number and then went in the gym for some balancing and flipping. We all received a medal at the end!

Almost a Sleepover

I stayed with my friend Richard last night while our Mommies went to their girls' dinner. The report was that we had a great time and were "as happy as larks". When I decided it was time to go to sleep, I made Richard come to bed, too. He was a good sport and stayed beside me even though he wasn't sleepy. We were a pretty cute pair of buddies!

Why Can't I Live in the Pool?

I have been a wild child in the pool so far this summer. I can navigate our new pool really well, getting from step to side to bench to side to...without any help. My favorite thing is to jump off into the water and swim to Mommy or Daddy.

Just Some Cute Photos

Evelyn's Party

My friend Evelyn turns five in a couple of weeks and had a backyard, sprinkler, slip-n-slide, sand/water table, bar-b-que party to celebrate! Those are the BEST parties! Happy Birthday, Evelyn!

Congratulations, Katie!

Me with the Graduate

Katie, Kelli and Kristi
Yesterday we headed to Victoria to celebrate my cousin Katie's graduation from high school. She is the third of my Uncle Jeff''s girls to graduate in the top 5% of their class and head to college with scholarships for their athletic abilities and their smarts. We are so proud of all of them, but yesterday was all about KATIE!

Baby Deer

I mentioned we have wild life in our yard, but the best thing so far is the fawn that was here this morning. If you look closely, you can see it next to the first tree.

Bird Feeder

We have a really great backyard at our new house, and it attracts lots of wild life. Mommy said the other day, "Look! There's a bunny...and a squirrel...and a deer..." To encourage this, Daddy and I put up a bird feeder. We have fun watching the birds eat and the squirrels contort their bodies to attempt to eat.
