Like Father, Like Son

I was extra good on Sunday to help Daddy celebrate his very 1st Father's Day. We even managed to find matching outfits to help root on Daddy's favorite team.

Here I am using Daddy's hair like the reigns to a horse.....he loved it!!

The bib says it all......

My First Swim!

Daddy got my frog pool filled up and the water temp was just right for me to take a dip! I loved it and I figured out how to REALLY make a SPLASH!

1/2 A Year Old Already!!

I celebrated my 6 month birthday on Wednesday. Mommy and Grandma Anderson took me to the park for a photo shoot. They say I was a perfect subject the WHOLE time...(not that they should've expected anything other than that). Here are just a few of the day's products. Thanks to Aunt Jackie for helping with some editing!!

Sitting By Myself - For Real This Time

Whew ~ I've had a busy week! Wednesday was Mommy and Daddy's 3rd anniversary, so Grandma and Papa Anderson came to play with me while Mommy and Daddy went out to eat. On Saturday, Grandma, Papa, and Uncle Craig brought Mommy and Daddy their anniversary present - a bench for the back patio (something that looks pretty neat for me to climb on!!). Then, today, Grandma Gentle drove up to spend the day with me. I have been working on sitting up all week and tonight after Grandma left, I got the hang of it pretty good ~ the proof is below! (Mommy jumped the gun in an earlier post - Daddy was still holding on to my arm). Now I am so tired that I am taking a big nap.......that's it until next time!!!

After Planting Party

Every year, in celebration of getting the crops planted, Grandpa Anderson takes all of his "helpers" out for a nice supper. Rumor has it that he does it again in the fall to celebrate harvest - now if I can just get big enough to eat one of those steaks!
Since I'm not old enough for steak yet, Uncle Craig thought I should just have beer!
If you look real close, you can see that I am sooo close to getting a hold of Papa's mustache - everyone (except Papa) can hardly wait for the day when I take a big handful!

My First Ouchie

While we were in St. Louis, I managed to get my first ouchie that required a band-aid! Not sure exactly what happened, but it didn't really phase me.

Doing Laundry

Mom is teaching me how to do laundry at an early age! So far I like it, but I don't really know any better!

Weekend in St. Louis

Daddy was in his college roommate's wedding in St. Louis the first weekend in June, so I spent my first whole weekend away from home. I traveled really good (slept most all of the way) and even slept good in my pack n play. Here I am on the huge bed all by myself right after my bath.
Got those feet again!!

Waiting Patiently

Just hanging out, waiting patiently for my bottle so I can go to bed.
Usually when I tip over like this, I am not too happy.

New Trick!

I discovered a new trick - I like to put my head in daddy's belly and stick my butt in the air. Then, to complete the show, I shake my tail feather!!

Sitting Up

I can sit by myself ~ for just a few seconds until I forget what I am doing!!!!
I really discovered my feet a couple of weeks ago ~ I now like to use them to play with my toys!
