3 MONTHS OLD

I sure have come a long way from this. I think I was in Mommy's belly about 6 months when this ultra sound was taken. I posed for the camera way back then.
And here I am 3 months old and getting bigger. I'm over 10 lbs. now and the Dr. is very pleased with my progress. I still have to get shots which is terrible but it will help to keep me safe. Thank God I won't remember the pain of the shots.
This is my action figure pose. If there was a toy of me, it would look like this and come with accessories like a full diaper, empty bottles, and a dino buddy.
This is my zen pose. I worked very hard at it which defeats the purpose if it being zen and what not. Still, it was fun getting to that peaceful place in my mind. My Daddy's peaceful place is a comic book store.
Sometimes I like to take a minute from my daily festivities and ponder very important things such as, is this 5 point safety harness as durable as it looks and is the carbon fiber reversible attachments up to code with federal standards that should be enforced every year to keep little people like me safe from danger and the common cold.
Then I have moments like these where I couldn't care less about federal safety regulations and the people who instigate them. All I care about is........what is that thing on the ceiling?
This is one of my favorite shirts from Auntie Tiffy. She made it especially for me and it has my name on it with a great big peach. I love it soooooo much. Mommy says I'm narcissistic just like Daddy. It think it means cute.
Here I am playing in my favorite shirt.
Here I am sneezing in my favorite shirt.
And here I am after a long day of smiling. This concludes the photo shoot for today. I will now take off my make up, comb my hair, and poop in my sleep.

UNCLE TODD MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER

I LOVE listening to my Uncle TODD CAREY when I have some down time. His music makes me very happy as you can see. Mommy and Daddy always played his music when I was in Mommy's belly so I am very familiar with the lyrics. Check out his website by clicking HERE. Uncle Todd's guitar playing is incredible. He taught my Daddy how to play the guitar and now my Daddy loves it more than ever. I'm having a great childhood by being exposed to all of this great music.
The name of the song I'm listening to is called "SMILE" and my Daddy loves this song because he was there when Uncle Todd was doing scratch vocals for it. The process Uncle Todd goes through is meticulous and makes for fantastic music. When we have parties, Uncle Todd is always playing in the background.
This is what Uncle Todd's music does for me. I can't get enough of it and I can't wait till I'm old enough to see his live show. His shows are the only thing Mommy and Daddy get excited about. THANK YOU UNCLE TODD!!!!!

BATH TIME

I pretend to be asleep when Mommy wants to give me a bath.
It never works because I love the sound of Mommy's voice. She talks to me in English and Japanese so I can grow up and be very diverse........and can also tell when people are talking bad about my Daddy.
Mommy is getting the sponge bath ready as I anxiously await the procedure to begin.
The tension is incredible. I can barely stand it.
In the end it isn't that bad and I feel much better afterwards. I think I love baths. I won't remember I said this and will have to go through all of this again. I can't wait for my long term memory to kick in and also my long term memory to kick in as well. My Daddy made me write that last part.

WHAT A SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our friend Mary Retting painted this picture of me out of the goodness of her heart. She's 87 years old and wanted to do this as a surprise for us. I love it and Mommy and Daddy are touched and speechless. That's saying a lot when it comes to my Daddy. It's hanging in my room where I can wake up to it and say........"good morning me."
Here's the picture Mary used. I love her use of abstract art and the magnificent colorful paint scheme that really brings forth the subject of the matter...........ME!

11 WEEKS OLD

Can you believe I'm 11 weeks old? What does that even mean? Well, Mommy and Daddy just told me that news and it's amazing or something. I just smile and look back at them in agreement. I'll argue with them more when I'm 13.
Life is great. I can see better, I smile more......for no reason, I drool more, I play with Mommy and Daddy more, and then they had to get bigger diapers because I also eat more.
There's always time in the day to reflect on the past few seconds that have gone by. My memory isn't that great yet but I love to reflect. Did I mention I love to reflect?
Sometimes Daddy will take a picture of me when I least expect it. I almost punched him in the face as an instinctive response. Thank God I was able to pull my punch as you can see in this picture. That was a close one.
This is my favorite Om Girl baby T from Auntie Tiffy. It's soooo comfortable and I stretch like the little Buddha. Everything Auntie Tiffy gives me makes me happy, especially this one since I haven't pooped on it.......yet.
Daddy caught me with me tongue out again.
Now Daddy is sticking his tongue out at me. It's funnier when I do it.
Daddy is telling me a joke.
This is my reaction to the punchline. It's ok, he's use to it.

10 WEEKS OLD

Aunty Tiffy loaned me some of her hair for this pic. It was so unexpected but it came out rather nice. I love that look on my face.
Daddy took this pic of me with his camera phone. He can never get my hands in focus because I move them all the time.
I love my long pants.
These are my cherry blossom pants. They keep me warm when I go shopping at the mall.

9 WEEKS OLD









GREAT GIFTS

Uncle Bob and Aunty Varda were kind enough to get me this special customized blanket with my name on it. It is super soft and I makes me sleepy when I touch it. It's magical. Thank you Uncle Bob and Aunty Varda!
Sometimes I like to punch, stretch.......and punch.
Here I am during play time. There's this musical flashing thing that plays and I can't help but be facinated by it for hours........or until I poop. Nonetheless, it's quite a contraption.
