15 Months and Counting

First of all I am getting enormous. Remember when I was in the ZERO percentile for size? Well. Prepare yourself because now I in the TWENTY FOURTH percent. That 2-4. Wow. Told you I was huge. 22 pounds 11 ounces. AND I am 32.5inches long. That's the 86th percent. Watch out people, there's a monster comin' through.

Actually you don't need to watch out for me because there is some scary stuff out there in the world. Mostly you can find me hiding with my Momma. Momma and Daddy call it being shy, but I call it 'there's a stranger up in my face trying to talk to me but I don't know how to talk (so what do I do?)'. Also, did you know there are things out there (some people call them toys but toys are something you want to play with and I do NOT want to play with these things) that talk and move at you. Momma says Mickey Mouse is dancing. DANCING! I will show you dancing and what Mickey does is not a dance. Attack mode. It is definitely "toys" in attack mode that Momma has been showing me at the store. Scary stuff guys. Scary stuff.

On a better note, it is FINALLY a bearable temperature down around these parts and we have been doing lots of fun stuff outside. But, speaking of outside, I have to tell you how Momma has been teasing me lately. You see all I want to do is go play outside and several (several) times a day Momma opens the doors "letting the cats out (or in)" and then just as I get there, she SHUTS IT IN MY FACE. Not cool people. NOT. cool. Then Momma has the nerve to be annoyed at me for screaming and banging my head on the door.

Occasionally Momma does take me out there into the amazing OUTSIDE and we do fun things. We have been to see pumpkins, partied at fall festivals, rode on hay, been to the park, played in the backyard, danced in the street...... whoa. Just listing everything is wearing me out so take a look for yourself.

Walking with Momma and Daddy.
Daddy! Let's go this way!

What happened to this one?
My friends Kaede (in green) and William (in blue). I am SO excited!
I fell on my face on the wooden stairs at the back door. One of my favorite places to play in the back yard. Momma took these pictures because she says I almost never have  actual tears.

 Sunday at the park.
 Happy birthday Daddy!
 I can stand by myself!
 All this activity is wearin' me out.

 Mmmmmmm... Mango. I also eat apples like this.
 Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Street Festival.
 And lastly Momma insists on hanging up my underwear for everyone to see. Diaper laundry day.

Ok and if you made it all the way to the end of this crazy long post you get the secret surprise at the end. I took a step by myself! Then I took THREE steps by myself when Momma bribed me with her drink. And three again when she bribed me with a cupcake (that particular cupcake was DEEElicious. But it had crazy blue/green icing that made me poo bright greenish blue for 2 days.) If you wouldn't mind, tell my Momma to stop bribing me with stuff. I don't want to walk anywhere. Have you seen how fast I can crawl? PLUS how do you expect me to drive my cars around from way up there. Crazy People.

I Like to Dress Snazzy

Last weekend was a craaaaazy one. After not even unpacking from our Houston trip, Momma packed us up again and we hauled out of town Friday for San Antonio. We went to a pretty cool hotel and rode all the way to the top of the elevator to a giant room perfect for playing with my cars. Momma's friend, Helen, and her friends were there too. I was so sneaky and went in the bedroom that was connected to the living room part and shut the door. Haaaahaha they had to go out in the hall and use a key to find me! Then we all got dressed up and rode on a bus! It was the first time I have really been able to see out the window from a car (I sit backwards in the center of our car and there is no view from there) and it was AWESOME!
The bus took us to a huge chapel that is over 100 years old. It echoed really well, so lucky for Momma (and everyone else), Daddy met us there and played with me in the back where I could scream and listen to the echo as much as I wanted. I pretty much got it all out of my system and sat very nicely through the entire (45 minute plus!) ceremony the next day with YaYa and Mr. Sir. So below here is a picture of me standing all by myself. I do not like doing this at all but sometimes it happens by accident.

And one with Momma.
The next day Daddy left to go to Austin City Limits Music Festival (don't worry, Momma and I got to go the next day) and I was left with a hotel room full girls. Everyone played with a lot, especially Helen's sister Tirey! AND I got to take a nap with the bride... on her wedding day! It was an amazing nap with big plush pillows and eventually a king bed all to myself. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh
Then Mr. Sir and Yaya got there and I hung out with them for awhile and we partied with Uncle Trey.
 There we are leaving the chapel. I am one stellar looking date if I say so myself.
Hehe. That's me checking out the shot block. I told you Uncle Trey and I partied.
And here I am confirming the quality of his crown and coke.
My people! And George.
Bummed George wasn't in this one.
So he's in THIS one!
