It's hard to believe that five months have passed since I came into this world!
I've really been busy this month. Teething set in really bad for me (ouch!) and I've wanted nothing but to nurse all day and night. Even dad's feeble attempts at giving me carrots haven't worked.
Once the teething died down a bit, I gave mom a nice 10 hour break one night. She seemed REALLY grateful.
My days have been spent going here and there; to the States on trips and errands, to the amusement park and water park, and of course on walks with the family. I have warmed up to Avery quite a bit. She's pretty funny and almost always produces a smile on my face . . . until she tries to choke me with a hug or something . . . then I get really worried.
Mom brought out some fun toys for me, like my self-contained Jump-a-Roo and a cool Leap Pad table. (I can't really play with it, but I like the lights.) I still enjoy my fish swing . . . as long as Avery is far enough away that she can't swing me roughly in it.
I'm getting used to celebrity status. Everywhere I go, everyone absolutely loves me. They think I'm the most adorable little thing. Can you blame them? I truly am all that . . . and more! My sweet personality and huge smiles are just the icing on this jelly-roll!
So far I am not moving around a whole lot. I think mom fed me too much donut flavoured milk. But, I've been trying to roll over, and kind of had it working the other day. I'm not too concerned though. I've discovered that a huge smile and some frantic arm waving will get me up in the air in no time and with my "chauffer" I can go anywhere I please . . . while safely staying out of harm's way. Dad says I remind him of some character named "Oscar the Grouch", whoever that is.
All in all, I'm really enjoying my time here with my family. I just can't wait to get moving on my own . . . and trying some of that food stuff that they all eat.
