Flight Delayed

So I'm sure some of you are thinking of writing me a little note asking for the next post... well you'll have to wait. We've got lots of pictures on Mommy's new camera and a couple good stories, but Mommy's computer is currently with the Geek Squad for repair. So we can't download anything yet. Hopefully, the computer will be back on time (Jan 7th) or earlier. Keep your fingers crossed. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday stretch and we wish you the best for the new year. Cheers!

Holiday Spirit

Its about time to get into the holiday spirit. This isn't exactly my first Christmas, but it might as well be. I don't remember any of last Christmas. I'm pretty sure I slept the whole time. Not this year though. I've got some reindeer on my PJs and I'm ready to go!

I'm ready to make the big decisions. I helped Mommy & Daddy pick out a tree.

Since it was relatively warm (low 50s), after we got a tree and did a little shopping, Mommy convinced Daddy to walk on holy ground. We went and saw the Mormon's in their special place - the temple. We were shocked and amazed (or disappointed?) that Daddy didn't catch on fire or start melting when he went through the big white gates. No fireworks there, but there were lots of pretty lights everywhere. We also got to see lots of Christians in their native habitat.

Monday, we started to decorate the tree. Yeah... more lights!!

Post Birthday

After I opened all of my wonderful gifts, I got a few more. The tooth fairy came by the night of my birthday and gave me a new tooth. Yep, now I've got 3! And I do have to retract my statements about 2 teeth. They were quite useful. I learned how to hold my cheerios and use my 2 teeth to break them in half. I could tear lots of things with those teeth. Just imagine what I can do with 3!

Evil virus man also came by later that weekend and got both Mommy & me sick. boo! I'm doing better than Mommy though. The doctor said that I was strong and barely sick at all - while Mommy sounded horrible. The doctor's visit was my 1 year check up. I came in tall and skinny - 30.25" and 19 lbs 13 oz. Thats the 75% for height and 25% for weight... not good for Mommy & Daddy.

I'll leave you with my new favorite word. The "bird" is no longer THE word. Its "Buck-ee". Sounds like a good name for my first dog.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Can you believe that its been a year since you all started thinking I'm so cute?!

We we had a quiet birthday party at my house last night - just me, Mommy, Daddy and Auntie Anna - who came into down from NYC just for me. (Well... my birthday and a meeting.) First we checked out all of the cameras to make sure my birthday would be properly documented for the blog. We didn't want a repeat of Thanksgiving!

Once I was satisfied with that, we got our party hats on and well, let the festivities begin!

Auntie Anna helped me open my presents. Once they're started I can rip off paper with the best of them. I gotta say, some people throw away the paper and ribbon... but really, its just another good part of the present. It's lots of fun to play with paper and ribbons!

I made a bit of a mess with all of my great presents. Thank you everyone!! I've now got tons of books (YEAH!), some new clothes, and a few new toys. I've already mastered my new sorting block... why sort when you can just take the lid off and put the blocks in and out that way. Confucious says - always go the path of least resistance. Or is that a general law of nature?

After presents, is of course CAKE! Yep its a pink cake. Mommy swears she didn't ask for pink, it was the baker's choice. Daddy was horrified! Anna & I liked it though. I am a girl after all.

I then proceeded to make another mess. Mommy said I was allowed to destroy it since it was for my birthday. I would like to point out that Daddy put the frosting on my nose before I even got to touch the cake - not fair! It was a pretty good birthday, though I don't have anything to compare to.
