Holiday Babies in NYC

This is me and Spencer lounging in NYC. We were both born on a holiday- Independence Days to be exact: Cinco de Mayo and the Fourth of July respectively. If you do the math you will figure out that it is my second birthday next week! But let's talk about the terrace a little more, it is my new favorite thing. I am going to ask for one for my birthday- how great would it be to have my own little personal outdoor play area in the city? Really special I think. Yesterday I learned all about the terrace because I hung out on one with my parent's friends and I was such a good girl! It was especially fun because of baby Spencer- I was able to give him lots of hugs and kisses and nice pats. It was also nice because there were a lot of yummy things to eat and I stuffed my face with bananas, berries and apples. MMM.

Surprise Visit

On Easter Day we had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny! I was scared at first, but after I made the bunny's acquaintance, I couldn't get enough of the guy. The bunny hid plastic eggs all over the garden and they had yummy chocolate eggs inside- I must have eaten 20 of them and my mom started getting upset, so I had to start eating them surreptitiously. They were so good that I would drool every time, so she knew when I had another one. Uh oh...
I was sad when the bunny disappeared to take a break, but it was a bit confusing when, during one of these breaks, I found the rabbit head in the front room and brought it out to the kitchen and rolled around with it. I didn't understand where the bunny's body went.

Happy Easter

I finally have my bunny ears! The easter bunny also brought me a basket as big as I am. Wow, what a day. I've been doing a couple of practice egg hunts in the past couple of days, so I'm hoping that I'm up to the task today. I want to find them all! HAPPY EASTER!

My First Professional Haircut

Mimi and Mom took me to the Panda Room where I had my first official haircut. Mom had done some evening out, but this was really the first "style" because I actually had enough hair to do something with. I have to say that the lady did a very nice job, because now it sits just so, and it has a cute curl in the back. I didn't think I could be cuter than I already was, but I am!

Sleeping in a Shopping Cart

After a long flight from Dallas to San Francisco I was all tuckered out and couldn't stay awake. My mom decided to try a "No Drug" flight, meaning no Benedryl or other cough syrups, and boy was she sorry. I was a little monkey on the plane and I did not want to sit in my car seat. I am going through a throwing phase and everything mom gave to me to eat and play with I threw at other passengers. The flight couldn't end soon enough. Of course I fell asleep as the flight was landing. Then I was woken up, saw Mimi, collected luggage, strapped in the car and carried off to the market. After the long car ride I was out cold. Mom decided to bring me into the store and prop me up with Mimi's purse. They had an easy time shopping with me being such an angel and all.

Don't Mess With Texas

Last week my mom and I visited Texas to see her best friend from college and her family. She has two little boys and they are both very cute (my mom's opinion). I myself have a big crush on Sean, the little one, because he is such a nice little baby. I often gave him loving pats and hugs and kisses and sang songs to him. I couldn't give him enough attention. Michael, the bigger brother, and I didn't get along as amicably. He pretty much just ignored me unless I touched his trucks. We had some nice moments, but for the most part he was a bit possessive of his trucks. Lucky for me that he had so many trucks that he couldn't keep tabs on all of them, so I just played with the ones he wasn't watching at the time. If he chased after me and didn't want me to play with his things, then I would just pull his pacie (pacifier) out of his mouth and get a rise from him. You can see from the picture that he's being a bit obtuse- he doesn't want to sit on the couch with me and the baby because he's afraid of cooties.

Sometime in March

Less than a week after the 70 degree weather (and my blowout) it snowed. Go figure. So I dressed up in my faux fur and set out for the hills of Central Park for my first sledding expedition. It was a borrowed sled from the kind neighbor upstairs. At first I didn't really know what was going on- dad was at the top of the hill and mom was waiting at the bottom. After the initial push I was a bit disoriented, but then I realized that it was just like a slide and I didn't want to stop. So we sledded for awhile and I had a great day.
