This weekend, my Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Robert & cousin Mikayla came to visit. I had a great time talking with Mikayla in our own language. I can't wait until we get older and can play together more- she is much more advanced than me. You can tell by this picture that she can sit up on her own, but I need a little help.

"Is there a cow on my shoulder?" I love my cow (thanks to Jeanne Pauley in Charlottesville for giving it to me!) because she helps me sleep & she tastes good. Mommy & I went for a nice walk this morning with her friends, Sarah & Sherry plus my friends, Christopher (3), Reagan (1) & Isaiah (2 months). It was a little hot, but the trees helped protect us. Now it's naptime!

Even though my toes barely touch the bottom, I have been checking out my exersaucer. So, Mommy put me in it and I am enthralled by all the colorful, fun toys on it. I want to thank Aunt Erin, Uncle Josh and Matthew Tieman for my exersaucer or activity center, whatever you want to call it. I call it FUN!

Mommy took some video of me babbling- check it out here
Daddy wants to teach me to help out in the kitchen at a young age, so here I am with this thing called a spatula. We didn't make anything- he just wanted to show off my awesome grabbing skills. I also like to hold my blocks and rattle.

So, I've been falling asleep after eating and mommy just leaves me on the boppy. For some reason, I don't like taking naps in my crib, so this will have to work for now. It's hard on Mommy because she has to sit right next to me and make sure I don't fall out. It sure is comfortable though!

WOW- I'm 3 months old already! My mommy says it has gone by very fast & that she can't believe how grown up I have become. I wanted to show you my tongue, my belly, my feet & hands, and my "I wonder what I want for my birthday" face. Where's my cake?? Mommy also said I was a little eager to celebrate my special day- apparently she wanted to sleep at 4 a.m. and I was ready to party! Luckily, Daddy calmed me down and we all partied together at a more reasonable time of 6 p.m., right before my bedtime.

My first 4th of July was pretty exciting. Mommy & Daddy took me to John & Amelia Harper's house for a cookout. I got this cute, patriotic outfit from mommy's godmother, Rita. I can't wait until I'm old enough to watch the fireworks. Mommy and Daddy said there were some out in front of our house after dark- thank goodness it didn't wake me up. Here's some cute pictures of me and Mommy & Daddy. I'll be 3 months tomorrow, so Mommy is going to post a grown-up picture of me. Enjoy!

It was a lucky day for me because my Grandpa Pope came to visit. He took Mom & Dad to Outback (yummy) and we had some fun playtime. He makes me laugh & tells me all about his baby Samantha, who will lick me whenever I see her. Not sure if I will like that. Thanks for coming to visit, Grandpa Pope! You are welcome to come every month.

Great-Grandpa Gette is so silly! He sticks his tongue out just like me. I'm so glad that I got to go to his birthday party (sorry for sleeping through most of it, Grandpa, but I'm sure you understand.) Also, thanks to daddy for keeping everyone informed of what I am doing- my mommy is a little slow sometimes. She says it's because she has her hands full with me. I try to take naps long enough for her to catch up on things like showering, e-mails & laundry, but most of the time I want to hang out with her. I'm learning to do more things with my hands, like holding my cow that was in a picture with me earlier. He is my sleeping pal. More to come later!
Unfortunately, Aunt Leanna is gone, but we had a great time together! She bought me some new clothes, fed me and put me to sleep one night so my mommy & daddy could go to a movie, and went to a baseball game without me. I can't wait for her to visit again & maybe I can go to the baseball game next time! Thanks Aunt Leanna for a wonderful time!

Mom and I are in North Dakota for Great-Grandpa Gette's 80th Birthday. Mom says I have been a very good traveler so far. I've enjoyed getting to meet a bunch of new cousins and to see Grandma and Grandpa Gette again. Boy, though, do I miss my daddy!
