I'm really good at three words: "Da da (da da da da da)," "Dih dah," which means Ziggy, "and Uh-oh". I make lots of other really fun sounds, but those are the only words I say. I know tons of words! For instance, I can show you where your nose, eyes, mouth, cheeks, hair, head, hand, toes, and tummy are. I also understand how to say "no" with body language. I shake off that incoming spoon of food when I don't want it!
I now can climb onto the couch and am trying really hard to climb into chairs. At school, I climb up to the top of the slide and go down on my tusch and on my tummy (feet first). I stand and squat really well. And I just recently graduated to walking with one hand holding Mommy or Daddy's and the other free. Tonight I even took several steps all by myself on several different occasions. It makes me cry, so I don't know why Mommy and Daddy keep encouraging me to do it.
I'm getting close to feeding myself. I can always get the fork to my mouth, I just think it's really hard to get the food on (and keep it on!) the fork.
I have 5 teeth. 3 front ones on the bottom, 1 on the top, and 1 molar on the top. Four of those teeth are on the left-hand side of my mouth... That molar really hurt and it took forever to show itself. I think we're all happy that it's out. Only three more to go!
I'm sleeping really well right now. 11-12 hours at night, and 2-3 hours during the day at home (1-2 hours at school). My horsie is still my most favorite toy. I now go to bed around 8:30 and sometimes have to be woken up to go to school in the morning.
I love puzzles. I'm really good at circles, and with help I can do squares and triangles too. I also love the Jack-in-the-box I got from my Cleveland cousins. Mommy doesn't like it as much as I do. I've also started noticing the TV. I really like the Baby Einstein videos and "Best of Elmo."
Most of all, I love books. My Mommy and Daddy say that makes sense, but someone will have to explain that to me later. Right now, my favorite book is "Goodnight Gorilla." I laugh really hard on 3 or 4 pages and love to kiss the mommy when she realizes that all the animals are in the room. I think she's the funniest part of the book.
That's it. It's time to drink my milk (I no longer use any bottles!!), read several books, kiss mommy and daddy, hug horsie, put my thumb in my mouth, and go to sleep.

My first beer. This is pretty self-explanatory.
My first baseball game was fan-tastic. Mommy, daddy, Grandpa Joe, and Grandma Gail went to a Colorado Rockies game in July. I like to think that my presence at that game inspired the Rockies on their run to the World Series, but there's no way to prove this causal link. I had fun at the game and managed to stay into the 8th Inning before I got tired and fussy.
My first trip to California was a long one. Mommy, daddy, and I went to visit my Great-Great-Aunt Judith for a few days in July. Daddy talks about her so much that I just cried and cried and cried until I got my way.
That's it for now. I'll be back soon.
