Swim Lessons & Leaping Lizards...

Another Thursday... another swim lesson...

Sorry it's a bad picture... the flash didn't go off, but mom wanted to keep posting our weekly swim lesson pic...


Just chillin', watching the 9:30 swim lesson...


"Ahhhh this is the life!"


Mom promises that if she had realized I was going to look this cute in this shirt, she would have put it on me sooner!


"Am I cute mom?"


Look, mom even made me a bow with a watermelon center to match...


"What are you taking a picture of mom?"


Mom and Kat were nice enough to take Corbin and I to Leaping Lizards today... They have a bunch of bounce houses and a toddler room... we had a good time...


"Are we playing with him again?" Corbin always looks MUCH happier to see me then I am to see him...


"Look... it's a baby jail!!!"


"Mmmmm this ball is tasty"


"What do you mean it might be dirty mom?"


"Mom, can I have a ball pit?"


"Hi mom, you're way up there"


"Hey Corbin are you joining me in here?"


"Hi mom..."


"Hey look, Corbin's looking at the camera!"



"Check us out... we're playing together!


Look an indoor slide that's my size...


A unicorn? So neat!


Another slide... the balls were really the most interesting part!


"Corbin are you going to try to pull up on me?" Mom was pretty proud of me for fighting back a little bit today...


Mom doesn't know what I was smiling at in this picture BUT it shows my new lip line... With my top teeth coming in, my upper lip is sticking out a little


Tonight there was a poop incident... Pooping in the jumparoo is NOT a good idea, it goes everywhere! Mom didn't want to get me redressed just for dinner, so I ate dinner in my diaper and a bib... fun stuff!

Eating cheerios...


"What'cha taking a picture of mom?"

Eating Adventures and Trying to Crawl...

Sorry we didn't post yesterday... our A/C broke and mommy spent the day trying to keep me cool and out of the house. It was 105 outside so even being in the car was pretty miserable. The house got to be 96 degrees and the A/C didn't get fixed until 8pm... We ended up just hanging out at Kat's, the mall and Starbucks until dad called and said it was fixed... It was ROUGH!

Blueberries for breakfast! Yummo! I really LOVE to chew on blueberry and grape skins... mom finds them in my mouth 30 minutes later... ha ha I'm SNEAKY!



"What mom, I'm suppose to be crawling now?"


"You gotta be kidding me!"


"Is this crawling?"


"How about this?"


"Maggie, can you PLEASE come show me how to crawl... I hear you army crawl really well"


So far my only attempt at being mobile is laying on my back and jumparooing myself to the next place... I can move myself pretty quickly scootin on my back... It'll have to do for now...

Check me out, I fell asleep on the floor taking my bottle... I woke up as soon as I finished...



One of my favorite parts of going to a playdate is that I get to try new things and if they work for me, mom usually ends up buying them for me...

Meet my new booster seat... I LOVE it SO much more than my highchair AND it's portable!


See how big my smile is about it?


Mmmmm... Cheerios! I can actually SEE them on this tray (not like my highchair where I had to just stick my hand out and hope I got something)...


"Hi Maggie, want some cheerios?"


"Mom is it ok that I shared them"


Oh the other best part of my new booster seat is that it has a play tray! So much fun!

The last weekend of July!

Hi friends! I know pigs must be flying... mom hasn't posted in DAYS! She needed a little break... Thursday night I didn't sleep well... I was up at 11pm and didn't go back to sleep until 2am...

All I can say is...

TEETHING SUX!


Here's proof...


One minute I would be fine, entertaining myself with puffs and the next I'd be teething on my stroller tray...


"Who me? Up till 2am? Never!"


After playing with Corbin's Little People on Thursday, mom decided I needed some of my own. She got me some official "Little People", but she also got me these two Little Einstein characters... it wasn't until we got home that we realized they look like Grandma Kitty and Papa Rodman when they were kids... I've really taken a liking to the Papa toy... you can almost always find him in my hand...


Here I am with both of my new friends...


On Saturday morning mom went to a baby shower for her friend Mary. Mary actually found out she was pregnant about the same time mommy had me! Mom decided we should take a mommy/daughter picture before she left... I didn't realize at the time that I wasn't going... but dad was a very good babysitter and I took a great nap!


Here is mommy and Mary at the shower. Mom says it was an awesome shower! They decorated onesies for Mallory and had all of Mary's favorite foods... Mary and Adam best wishes over the next couple of weeks... We can't wait to meet Mallory!!!


Here is a picture of mom and Mary back in November at mommy's shower.... oh how the roles have reversed!


Saturday my teething necklace arrived. No it is not for me to actually "teeth on"... it's made from Baltic Amber which is a natural pain reliever and is suppose to help me with the pain of teething... it seems to be helping but mom promises she's not letting me sleep with it on. Here's some info on the benefits of Amber and teething if you are interested... Teething necklace

I look happier huh? Mom thinks it makes me look like a little hippy wearing this necklace, but after the pain I was in this past week, mom was ready for us to try anything!!!


Notice I'm holding "Papa"...


Saturday night mom was playing with my hair in the bathtub... she's AMAZED how long my bangs have gotten and wanted a picture...

"Mom I'm afraid they look silly..."


"Ok daddy says they look ok so they must be..."


Mom and I went to the Everything Babyfest in Fort Worth today. We needed an outing and dad needed some "dad time" so we thought we'd check it out. For some reason it wasn't as fun as mom remembers it being last year, but maybe that's because I have EVERYTHING!

Oh well, at least I got to wear a cute sundress...




So how do you survive a 105 degree day???

You have a Diaper Only afternoon and a fresh fruit slush from Sonic!!! YUM!


"Keep it comin', keep it comin'..."


I really want to figure this straw thing out, but I get distracted with chewing on it...


Check out my bubble! Now that's a talent!


Mom wanted a picture of me with my treat... but I grabbed for it and mom had to grab it away before I dumped it over on the carpet.


"Ahhh much better!" (if you look REAL close you'll see my new tooth coming in on the right side of my teeth- the top front ones are coming in too - UGH!)


Check out my tongue! Mom was cracking up...


Mom thinks this is just the sweetest picture of me...


I got to try spaghetti tonight. Mom cut up my noodles and added a little bit of tomato sauce to it... it was pretty good... I was already tired so I ended up rubbing tomato sauce all over my face!




Here are two videos from this weekend... the first is me dancing with dad this morning...

This one is my new favorite activity... I LOVE jumparooing on mom's leg... I don't need no stinkin' jumparoo! Mom's leg works just fine... she's not doing ANYTHING but balancing me.... I'm doing all the work... mom is amazed at how strong my legs are... GO ME!
