Oh, The Places I've Been!

Oh, the places I've been! In the last 2 months I ...

Had a great time when Grandma came to visit and took me and my cousins to the park...where I got to swing for the first time! Went on my first airplane trip! I went to Vermont for Granddaddy's 70th birthday...
where the foliage was so beautiful. Thanks Granddaddy for a great trip!

Didn't have to go anywhere for this picture, but my mommy thinks I might as well go to Paris or Rome to start my modeling career...Went to a nearby farm and went on a hayride with Honey...where we found a pumpkin patch.

Went to a fall festival at church, where a goat wanted to be my friend.

Went trick or treating with my cousin Reeves, the skunk

Went to New Orleans, where I hung out with Grandma and Aunt Ginny and my cousins...
And Granddaddy and Grandmary.
Went on a walk with my new walker...

And for a ride on mommy's shoulders.
And finally, I went to an 'unhappy place'...

How I Learned to Drink

Here's how it all started. When it was time for me to eat my bottle, someone (like Grandma!) always held it for me. So I got used to that. And I liked it. Then all of a sudden I was expected to hold my bottle all on my own. And eat all by myself? Don't think so! I'll show them- I've got this all figured out, and I don't even have to work for it. THEN I find out it's not just a bottle, but a sippy cup TOO? This is all just too much for me to handle. I see it. I want it. But I will not pick it up. Someone's going to have to do it for me.

Yep, I knew if I just sat there long enough mommy would come along and help me. After a while, even though I knew my mommy and daddy would help me, I decided to see if I could do it on my own. And what do you know- I can!
Oh, and just to show off, I can hold a really big bottle, too.
