Happy Smurf Day!

Today I went over to Granny & Grandpa Reed’s house for a little birthday celebration with some family. I went swimming with Mommy & Daddy and played with all my toys. Granny got me a really cool Nemo cake. It had pretty toy fish and lots of BRIGHT colored icing. Publix (where the cake was from) also gave her a SMASH cake… and I did just that!

That’s ME in the blue… somewhere.

Thanks Granny for tolerating my blue period in life.

My First Birthday

Mommy and Daddy took me to Great Explorations. It is a place designed just for kids that has some really neat toys and fun things to learn. I saw a tennis ball fly all the way up to the ceiling. I got to point out fish. I even got to play in a special area just for little kids like me. They were opening a new Fire Station for kids that day so I got to see fire trucks and the fire-dog even licked my face. That was kind of scary because I have really only seen dogs in my books.

Afterwards Mommy and Daddy brought me home and I took a 3 hour nap. When I got up they dressed me in my swim clothes, loaded me in the car and took me to the beach. I had only been to the beach one time before and I was really little (Mommy said about 3 months old). I didn’t know what to think of the water rushing at my feet… but i got used to it. I finger walked over 1/4 mile to the pier and then back. It was really fun.

One finger of frosting… I can refrain from gorging.

They laughed at me because I know how to fill a cup with sand and DRINK the sand.

Mommy & Daddy were quick yo me rescue with a big glass of water. Mom said my diaper was gritty the next day.

Daddy tried to teach me to pour sand. I will get it someday.

Birthday Happenings

So it has been a while since I posted anything. My life has been really busy. A few weeks ago I had a birthday party at Gymboree. I was very cranky because I was still getting over a bad stomach virus but I still had a fun time.

Lots of my friends and family came to share my special day. Mommy and Daddy didn’t take a lot of pictures because there was so much going on. Thank you everyone who came! 🙂
