We went to Lemoine Point for some costume pictures yesterday. This is the best picture of Mason that Mommy was able to get and I wouldn’t even put my costume on. As soon as we got there I started whining and kept on saying “this way”. I wanted to go for a walk! LOL. Mommy took us there to have fun so she didn’t even try to get me to wear my costume and she took a few pictures of Mason and then we went for our walk. I was as good a gold once we started walking and let Mommy take lots of pictures while on our walk. Today I actually said “No camera Mommy!” when she pulled it out but while I wasn’t looking she was able to snap a few shots of what she was trying to get a picture of, we will share those tomorrow. In other news, Mason is now showing off 2 teeth!

26 Weeks tomorrow and 6 Months old on Wednesday!! Half a year old already!!! Time is really flying by. This week I surprised Mommy with my first tooth! It wasn’t there Friday when I went to sleep but it was there when I woke up. I have been drooling like crazy for months now and I have been attacking faces and chewing on fingers. Taylor did that for 6 months before she cut her first tooth at almost 9 months old so Mommy wasn’t even expecting a tooth because I wasn’t acting fussy or crying during the night. What can I say, I like to keep her guessing LOL. I started eating solids this week too. I am not too thrilled with sweet potatoes yet but I do love applesauce and raspberries… YUM! I am also starting to get up on my hands and knees and rocking back and forth. I haven’t accomplished this on the hardwood floor yet but I can do it on the couch and carpet. Last but not least, I am starting to copy things. When I was at Grandma & Grandpa’s house Grandpa tapped on the table to try to get my attention and so I tapped on the table too. We sat there and played that game for a few minutes until Taylor came in the room and tapped on the table too. I thought that was so great and laughed and laughed and laughed! So far only Taylor can get me to laugh like that.

What’s not to love? We only wish that we could get outside more often. It always seems like something comes up but it does make us more appreciative when we actually get to go. Mason and I had so much fun playing with leaves today. I can’t wait to go back next week! We have so many pictures so hopefully Mommy will be posting a few everyday for a bit.
Last night we went to the Mall to see Toopy & Binoo! It was crazy how many people were there and made Daddy a little perturbed so he had to leave to shop while we watched the show, on the bright side we were just able to leave when it was over because he did Mommy’s errands for her. Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures because Mommy forgot to charge her battery for the camera. Mommy brought the camera because she knew she could still manage to get a few shots out of it. Daddy wasn’t aware of that though and while Mommy was at The Children’s Place he turned it on and took some pictures of the empty stage and the battery died!! When Mommy got back he told her the battery was dead… D-UH LOL!

25 Weeks! This week I am all about getting what I want and if I don’t I will throw a fit. (I wonder who taught me that was the norm… Taylor? LOL) Up until now I would just whimper a little if Taylor took a toy from me or if it was just out of reach. Now I have no problem letting my emotions show. Crying, screaming and kicking isn’t out of the question LOL!!
I have officially graduated into 12 month clothing. I am eating rice cereal everyday and I can’t wait until I get to start solids next week!! Just like Taylor did, I will attack your face with my mouth if I am hungry. Spinning in circles on my belly is fun but when I do it in my crib I sometimes get wedged into the corner and it makes for lousy sleeping. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

24 Weeks!! Something significant has happened this week, you can put me to bed awake and I will go to sleep! It has been a long time coming and probably would have happened sooner but Mommy really enjoyed our cuddles. I am just getting too big so it really isn’t that comfortable to fall asleep on her anymore.
I am getting so much better with other people too. This weekend I only cried once when someone besides Mommy or Daddy held me and I chatted up a storm with Uncle Dave and Aunt Amy. This growing up thing isn’t too bad after all!
Sometimes I will hold out my arms to you (okay, just to Mommy and Daddy so far) if you hold out your hands and ask me if I want up. I am turning in circles on my belly if I am on the floor and if I am on the couch or carpet I try to get my knees up under me. So far the hardwood floors have proved to be too slippery for me to get my knees up. The jumperoo is getting more and more fun for me but I still prefer to sit and read books and play with my toys. Last but not least, I can hold my own bottle. Mommy had to pump on Saturday and later Daddy and Grandma reported that I held my own bottle! Unfortunately she wasn’t there to get a picture though.

We have had a great weekend so far. Friday night we went out to dinner with Uncle Dave and Aunt Amy and had a chance to catch up. I had lots of fun playing with them and Mason even enjoyed himself too, he’s getting to be really social! On Saturday Mommy and Daddy went to John & Susan’s house and had a yummy dinner and great time. Thanks for having them over, it gave Mason and I some time to play with Gramma. Today we headed to Perth to see Mommy’s family and had another great dinner. I didn’t eat much supper but I did have a bite or two of pie! YUM! I ran around the yard and house with Jaden and India and had a blast, I love playing with other kids. Thank-you everyone for making this Thanksgiving so fun and wonderful. We are off to Grandma & Grandpa’s tomorrow.

We went to Saunders Farm last Saturday with Aunt Shanny, Uncle Jay, Jaden & India. I had so much fun running around all over the place like a mad woman. I pitched a few fits but for the most part was a good girl. Mason was even being social and didn’t cry when Aunt Shanny picked him up and held him. He stared at her for a bit but then broke out into smiles and was content to let her hold him.
There were so many fun structures to play on and we went on a hayride and pet some animals in a new section. Jaden found a fuzzy caterpillar and I liked holding him. We saw a llama and Mommy asked if it’s name was Dolly? Aunt Shanny started laughing immediately because she grew up with Mommy and gets Mommy’s sense of humour LOL, however the llama’s name was Dexter. My favorite thing at the farm was by far the big slide!! I went down it twice with India and then I insisted on going down by my ”SELF”! After about 10 more trips down the slide we stopped and had a snack. On our way out we stopped for a few pictures with the pumpkins and a treat, (Thanks Aunt Shanny!) I picked out a small tray of chocolates and ate most of them on the way home. Mommy is still frowning at Daddy about that LOL!! Can’t wait to go back again next year!

23 weeks tomorrow, getting so close to a half a year old!! Taylor and I are starting to play together. Mommy has been putting me down on the floor (not on my mat) and Taylor has started to pay more attention to me! Taylor lifted my mat over our heads and we played under there for a while, it was so much fun. I just love watching her. When we go in the van I look over at her and smile and coo until she looks at me, when she does look over I wriggle and giggle, I can’t wait to be able to play with her more. Mommy and Daddy both agree that I just seem to have grown up so much in just a week, they’re not exactly sure what it is that makes me seem so grown up… perhaps how I am starting to interact so much better or maybe just that I know what I want and will try to get it. If there is a toy on my mat I will pull the mat so that the toy comes to me lol! I wonder what new things I will learn this week?

Here I am giving Mommy my pouty face. I wanted out of my stroller and wanted her to know it without saying a word LOL! We went to Saunder’s Farm on Saturday and I had a great time except when I was put in my stroller for not listening and running off… and I’ll do it again too hahahaha!! We have so many more pictures to share but we just need some time to sit for a bit and sort through them first, probably Tuesday. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
