Halloween Costume & More...

Ok so this is a catch up post... mom has been great about posting videos, but not so great about posting pictures. Keep reading after this post for some great dancing and clapping videos.

See I'm still trying to figure out this crawling thing...


Mom wants to get me a shirt that says "Too Cute to Crawl..."


So since I love to stand so much mom asked dad to build me a ballet barre so I could practice...

First thing I did... rise up on my toes, just like mom. Mommy walked on her toes until she was 10 years old, she's hoping she didn't pass this on to me!


"Daddy this is GREAT! Thank you!"


Mom is going to hang a mirror and some other toys for me to check out while I work on my leg strength...


"Daddy... what happens if I fall?"


Working on my ballet moves...


I was super excited when the cat came to visit!



Then it was time to cheer on the Cowboys...

My best football player pose! Grrrr....


This shot shows how big my head is in relation to my tiny little body...


Showing off my 3 bottom teeth...


"Peek-a-boo..."


"Whatcha doin' mom?"


Monday morning mom took me to the park to feed the ducks... I wasn't afraid of the geese this time at all!


We of course also did a little swinging...


Then we walked around the pond... I was totally interested...


"Where we going mom? I'm not done yet..."


So today mom and I got my Halloween costume... it's SO cute and it was on sale 35% off at ToysRUs....

I'm going to be a PUPPY!

"Mommy... I think there's a rule about not taking pictures in ToysRUs... what if we get caught and can't come back in? That would be TERRIBLE!!!"


I tried on my costume for daddy tonight...

Much happier puppy!


Maggie had to check the new puppy out!


Mom said I felt like a muppet in it...


Showing off my tail at my ballet barre...


What do puppies do? They crawl! Maybe I'll be crawling by Halloween!


"Ruff!"


Sweet puppy puppy...


Innocent puppy...


We'll have more puppy pictures when Halloween gets here. Mom is going to make me a collar and some bows for my ears... we're thinking about going to get my picture taken in my costume... I also have a bee costume and mom's friend is working on a cupcake costume... a girl can never have too many costumes!!!

I'm finally really able to use my entertainment table... I even take my hands off and balance on my belly...



"Am I doing it right mom?"


I Can Dance!

Last night "Chuck" came on tv... I love TV intros, the music and animation and I was REALLY into this one... funny because it was a Cake song which mom and dad both like (they have VERY different musical tastes)... Dad played the intro for me 3 times and I danced all three times... I've been butt bouncing for a while, but this was adding arms and clapping and everything into my dancing...

Teaghan's 1st Birthday!!!

Today was my friend Teaghan's 1st birthday party... mom made the invitations, the cake and Teaghan's bow for the event so we were very excited!



Laughing SO hard that I couldn't keep my eyes open...


Mom made me this fun shirt that says my name and has cupcakes on it... Teaghan's theme was cupcakes... (notice now I'm crossing my feet even when I stand!)


I was cracking mom up!


When we got to the party mom put the cake together and then let the big girls decorate it.


While they did that, us babies played on the floor.


Future college roommates! UT KKG's!


Teaghan's brother Garrett came over to play with us... I thought he was pretty cute!


Teaghan got frustrated waiting for her cake... who can blame her!


Teaghan's mommy was brave enough to light a candle... mom said we'll be skipping that this year!


First taste...


Do you think she likes it?


Yep... she definitely liked it!


Here she is after spending a few minutes with her cake...


While all the kids worked on the pinata, mom and I went in the bounce house... I really liked it when mom was jumping with me, but she couldn't get a picture of that...



Mommy turned around and found me like this...


She helped me stand up to play...


Teaghan's Aunt Sarah bought her this really cute birthday hat...



Time for Teaghan to open her presents...





"I'm getting pretty good at this sippy cup thing"


I love Teaghan's older sister Hayley...


"Mommy... can I have a big sister?"

(mom note: when I told Hayley that Milla loves girls her age and wishes she had a big sister, Hayley told me that I could just make another baby and Milla could be the big sister... I cracked up!)
