Back Home

After a long day of flying and driving, we made it home safely from our Christmas vacation in Utah. (I'll go through pictures soon and post about all the fun we had.) We had been gone for so long that I wasn't sure if I would remember our house. But, right when we walked in the door, I remembered all of the fun I have here. Here are some older pictures of all of the things I remember doing around the house.

 Thanks to the pouring rain on Halloween, we had to wait a couple of days to get some good pictures of my costume. Sorry for the delay. If you can't tell, I was a garden gnome. Mom and Dad said they might rent me out to gardeners next summer because I look so cute. I don't know what "rent" means, but it sounds fun. I can't wait until next Halloween so I can dress up again.

At The Beach

Now that the rainy season has kicked in, we're learning to take every opportunity we can to get out of the house. So, when the rain stopped for a couple of hours, we headed to the beach.

Funny Faces

This is for all of you who like to pretend that I'm always an angel. Though I don't like to show it all of the time, I do have quite a wild side.

But then again, maybe I'm only wild when I wear blue. I just realized that I'm wearing blue in every one of these pictures. Maybe it's time I go back to being a pretty princess in pink.

Mommy's Birthday

Today was Mommy's birthday and we had so much fun. We woke up to Daddy's delicious pancakes. Then Daddy and I surprised Mommy with her birthday outfit. She loved it. By the time we were all dressed and ready for the day, I was already exhausted. So, I took a nice long nap. As soon as I woke up, we went out to lunch at Jethro's Fine Grub. We had to wait a little while in line, so Mommy read me a story.
It was soooo good. We saw it on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," and just had to try it.
Mommy and Daddy got pulled pork sandwiches and I got to try my first french fries. They are so salty and delicious.
I really like going out to eat. For some reason, everyone always stares at me and tries to talk to me. They always want me to wave and don't realize that I'm just learning how so I forget sometimes to wave back. When I don't know what to do, I revert to staring. I've always been good at that.

After lunch, we drove across town and across a big bridge to Stanley Park. The first thing I saw was a pile of leaves.
The leaves were nice and crispy, kind of like french fries, so I took a bite.
Not salty, and definitely not delicious!

Mommy packed me back in my stroller, wrapped me up tight in my favorite blanket with my favorite stuffed animal, Pappy.
We walked all around the park. It was beautiful!
We saw lots of geese, sailboats, zinnias
and across the bay was the big city.
After a little while, I wanted to get out of my stroller to get a closer look.
Actually, I just wanted to honk Daddy's nose. He sure fell for it.
We had so much fun. Happy Birthday Mommy!!!

Spitting and Standing: my new favorite pastimes

February? What, I haven't posted since February? Well, I wish I had a good excuse like I've been suffering from infant carpal tunnel syndrome or something so I haven't been able to move my little sausage fingers well enough to type, but that's just not true. The truth is, first Dad's laptop broke and the crazy repairman took over three weeks to not fix it (we picked it up the day we left Germany and it still wasn't fixed), meanwhile my Aunt Jessie came to visit and we toured through the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. In April, Daddy graduated and we all flew back to the US. We first landed in Connecticut to visit my Aunt Angela and her family, who I already miss so much. After a couple of weeks in CT, we flew to Utah where I've been bombarded with hugs and kisses from aunts, uncles, cousins, grandmas and grandpas since the day we arrived. So, now that my Taylor grandparents are in Europe and my Francom grandparents are in Hawaii, I finally can take a deep breath and show you what I've been up to lately.

Past time #: 1 Binkie spitting

Past time #2: Standing up against things on my wobbly legs

My New Pants

So, I know I favor my riding pants a lot, but I got a new pair of pants and they're pretty awesome. I call them my plastic Lederhosen. As you can tell by my face they're not the most comfortable things around, seeing that they force me to do the straddles all day, but I love them all the same. What do you think?

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Sorry to all of you little boys out there, who were getting your hopes up, but first off, I'm too young, and secondly, I chose my Dad as my Valentine this year anyway. I even put on my special Valentine's outfit for him for when he got home from work.

Jawohl, Herr Kommandant!

Guten Tag! Here I am as a German baby. At first mom had a headband on me for the picture, but you don't even want to get me started on what these Germans say about headbands. (Did she come with that? Is it to cover her baldness?) They just don't get it. Anyway, all the babies here wear these type of outfits that you put on from the bottom and snap at the shoulders. This cute one with kitties is from a sweet lady in the ward. Meow!!!

My Baby Blessing

I'm sorry that this has taken so long, especially to my grandmas and grandpas, but a couple of weeks ago my Dad got to bless me in church. I was so excited to be blessed, especially because I got to wear the same dress my Mom wore when she was a baby. But, I added a headband, bracelet, and special shoes to it. I also got to use my favorite blanket that Great Grandma Francom made for me. It was such a special day for all of us.

11 Weeks Old

I'm getting older. I like to Smile a lot, laugh occasionally, eat my hands, roll over (when my arms are put in front of me) , and sleep pretty well through the night. 
I'm a happy little baby!
