Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is Daddy's birthday. I got to visit him at work today and wore a special shirt for him. You can see it in the picture below, it says "Happy Birthday Daddy". Mommy made it for me and it made Daddy really happy. Daddy took me over to the scale they have at work and found out I weigh 11 pounds! I'm getting big.

Daddy wanted me to remind you that he is adding new pictures all the time to the picture gallery on the right so check it out.

Visit with the Haake's

Yesterday I got to go visit Andrew, Laney, Connor, Morgan, and Brooke! It was a lot of fun. Connor and Morgan both held me a played with me and Brooke spent the whole time flirting with Daddy. Connor and Morgan played hide and seek with Daddy, and then Connor and I played peek-a-boo. I had a great time with them and hope I get to see them again soon.

Look at the beautiful "welcome" sign that Connor and Morgan made for me. And don't forget to look at the rest of the pictures from the visit by clicking on the picture gallery to the right.

Visit from a new friend and happy birthday Uncle Dan

Happy birthday Uncle Dan! I can't wait to meet you.

Last night one of Mommy's friends visited me last night. She brought me this really cool party hat for me to wear on my birthday. I can't wait to try it on, it looks like something a princess would wear. Perfect for me, don't you think?

Today I am one month old! Can you believe it? A lot has happened to me since I was born on January 17th.

I got visited by lots of people in my family and lots of Mommy and Daddy's friends.
I went home to live with Mommy and Daddy.
I got a pretty new room and lots of pretty new clothes.
I grew over an inch and close to 1 and 1/2 pounds!

I learned about football and watched my first Super Bowl.
I learned about Fighting Illini basketball.
I learned about winter weather in Chicago (60 on Tuesday and 20 on Saturday?!).

This next month is going to be even more exciting, I just know it. I going to visit Danville, where Mommy and Daddy grew up. This weekend I am going to get to visit some new friends, Connor, Morgan, and Brooke. They are the boy and girls that Mommy used to watch before I came along. And who knows what else can happen? I can't wait to find it out and share it all with you.

And check out this great collage of all the pictures of me from this past month.

Kelly and Dan

Today I got to meet two of Mommy and Daddy's friends, Kelly and Dan. They live in Peoria but came up to see me and take me shopping! Now THAT was fun. Kelly was so nervous holding me, but she did a great job, as you can see below. I got a couple of new outfits that I can't wait to wear. I'm growing out of clothes already, can you believe it? Meeting Kelly and Dan was fun and I can't wait to see them again.

Happy Valentine's Day and Birthday Message

Happy Valentine's Day everybody! Check out the new pictures of me in my valentines outfit! Daddy's favorite is the one where I look like a valentines gangsta.

Also, I forgot to post a happy birthday message yesterday to my wonderful Great-Grandma Betty. What an awesome lady! I can't wait to see her when I visit Danville in a couple of weeks.

I'm getting so big!

Hi Everybody! I went to the doctor today for my 4-week check-up. Can you believe its almost been 4 weeks already since I was born? Well it has. The doctor said I am very healthy. The biggest surprise is that I am 9 lbs now! I gained 1.7 lbs in the last 14 days. I've also grown 3/4 of an inch and am now 21.75" long. That puts me in the 78th percentile for height. Look out Shaq! I go back to the doctor in a month, I wonder how big I'll be then! I'm not sure I want to go back though. I heard Mommy and Daddy talking about "shots". I'm not sure what those are, but from the way they were talking I don't think I'm going to like them.

Also, last night Mommy and Daddy took me to get my picture taken. Grammy bought a package for me at Olan Mills the last time she was up here, thanks Grammy! The photographer put me in all kinds of crazy poses. I slept through most of it, but it was fun and Mommy and Daddy were happy with the picture they chose. When it comes in Daddy will put it on the blog for everyone to see.

Well, its about dinner time so I'll sign off for now. Bye!

I'm ready for my close up

So the video Daddy made for me that I said had some "fancy" editing was not allowed on Youtube because it has a song in it that is copyrighted. But he found a way to put it up here for you to enjoy. I hope he doesn't get sued!

Anyone can comment

Daddy changed the settings on my blog so that anyone can leave comments. Before you had to have an account with Google or AIM. But now it should be open to everyone, so leave me a message.

Youtube Channel

I wanted to figure out a way to share all the videos of me with the world without linking each one in my blog, so Daddy created a Youtube account for me! Now there is a link over there on the right side of my blog that will take you to my Youtube account and you can look at all the videos Daddy has uploaded of me. To be honest, I really don't do a whole lot in the videos yet. But Daddy always smiles while he watches them, so there must be something interesting about them. Daddy also tried his hand at some "fancy" editing and added a song to the one called "I'm ready for my close up".

I'll try to remember to leave a message here when I upload a new video or pictures.



I made my Youtube debut when I was only 1 day old. My Uncle Roy and my daddy both have posted vidoes of me. Enjoy, I am sure there will be more to come.
