Happy Birthday Briggie!

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birfday to you,
Happy Birfday dear Briggie,
Happy Birfday to you!

Wish I could be there to give you a hug and a big drooly baby kiss. Did you know your birthday (yesterday) was the same day I turned exactly 9 months old?!

If I were old enough to write, and lick envelopes and stuff, I'd send you this card: The Perfect Birthday Card for My Quirky Grandma

Still Packin'

Hey folks! I'm in central PA on this stage of our road trip and I thought you'd like to see what it looks like when I pack my suitcase! Mommy said I could take as much on this trip as I could personally carry. My suitcase weighed 40.5 pounds...they almost didn't let me take it on the plane. Boston was fun, but PA is funnerest! Everyone here loves me. I have so many kinfolk I can't keep 'em all straight! Mommy said that I have a lot of coufsuns and secund coufsuns and great ants and great uncowls. I'm not sure what all those are, but if they have anything to do with all these people who like to hold, bounce, snuggle and smile at me, then it must be good. I even met two sets of great grandpaps and great grandmas! Great Grandpap Byers said that I was "mighty strong" and Great Grandpap Wolfe said that I was "some boy"! In this picture, it looks like he's trying to give Mommy some stern child-rearing advice, but he's really just trying to get me to look at the camera!

Grandma and Grandpa

Folks! Here is one set of my local Grandparents. Aren't they cute? That's Grandma Viola on the left and Grandpa Leland on the right. They are both really good at tennis. Hopefully they'll teach me someday!

The 3 'ING's

It's official. I've learned to multi-task! I'm 8 months old and I can MULTI-TASK. Sweet. Here I am stand-ING, drool-ING, and with a runn-ING nose! How's that for an 8 month old? Mommy was too slow on the camera, though. Right before this shot, I was also chew-ING the table!

Make a Crawl for It!

Mommy snapped this photo right before I got around the corner. Shoot! I had planned my big escape and was making a crawl for it. I was planning to go into the Living Room and chew on some cords or something. She never lets me do anything fun!

Up, Up and Away!

This morning Mommy and Dada got up REALLY early! Good thing I'd been training them how to do that the past 8 months. I didn't know WHAT was going on...because right after she came and got me, Mommy stuck me in my car seat and Dada started driving.

Next thing I knew, I was getting my diaper changed in the back of the Subaru and had this sweet dinosaur fleece thingy put on me. I was nice and warm. Mommy even gave me a yummy cookie to eat. THEN I realized where we were!

We were at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! I got to see lots of bright colors floating in the sky. My fave was the cow shaped balloon complete with an udder; I'm not sure WHY I liked that one so much.
