This was a fun, and scary week! I had a date at the park with pretty Miss Elena. Boy, can she move! She is crawling and pulling up and everything – I only roll. I am doing a whole lot more rolling though and Mummy thinks I will crawl soon. We had lunch at the park and there was a yucky bee that scared Mummy and Celia – they did NOT want me or Elena to get stung! We moved to a nice shady area under a big tree. We sat on the cool bag that turns into a blanket that my Tia Dia got my Mummy for Christmas. It was the first time I’d discovered grass! I loved looking at it and pulling big handfuls of it up. It was also nice and soft when I decided to fall backwards from sitting. Next weekend, I get to see Elena again at the pool. Shelby is coming too – yay! My two favorite girls 🙂
This weekend Mummy and Daddy took me up to Nederland for Sunday brunch. I took a nice snooze in the car and was happy when we got there. Daddy had found this little place called The Sundance Cafe when he was appraising a house up there. I sat in a high chair like a big boy and eat my breakfast there too! I did a good job flirting with everyone around me and Daddy called me a chick magnet! Probably because I was wearing my “Chicks Dig Me” bib 😉 Mummy and daddy decided that it should be a new Sunday tradition to go up to the mountains for brunch. Maybe next week we can go to Estes Park!
I keep on being a good eater, though I am less and less enamored with the bottle. I gave Mummy a huge scare when she tried to give me pumpkin. I did NOT like it and instead of making a face or spitting it out, I just held it in my mouth and refused to swallow. I opened my mouth for more, so so Mummy thought, and she gave me another bite. Still no swallowing! Then I started turning very scary colors and really, truly choking!! Mummy quickly scooped the pumpkin out and wacked me on the back until it was out and I could breath again. Mummy was very, very scared but now realizes that when I don’t like something, there is no big production or faces or spitting it out. I just won’t swallow it so you need to be really careful if you are feeding me something new. Even though I hated eating pumpkin, I loved playing with the mini-pumpkin Mummy got me!
Speaking of pumpkins, it’s almost Halloween!! Mummy already got my costume, but you’re just going to have to wait to see it 😉
On a brighter note about food, I LOVE yogurt and eat one or usually 2 containers (4 oz) of Yo-Baby yogurt every day. Yummmmm. I also got to try cottage cheese. Mummy knows I need to keep practicing chewing and I did super with it. Another new favorite is when Mummy gives me a banana to chew on and eat…even though I also play with it. I also tried watermelon pieces and chewed them up like a pro! Now, whenever anyone is eating near me, I stare and stare and sometimes I drool. This is why I got to try watermelon this morning!
All in all, a good week 🙂 Here are some photos of the past week…
