Beach Baby!!

This past weekend I went to the beach for the first time. We went to Port Aransas as I didn’t want to be in the car for as long as it takes to get to South Padre. We went with my grandparents (my mommy’s parents), all of my aunts and uncles, and all of my cousins.

The weather was perfect. I took my morning nap during my six mile run on the beach. Then I was ready to play! It was so much fun. My mommy is still obsessed about keeping me out of the sun since I am still not old enough to wear sunscreen, but she let me be exposed to a little sun for these few pictures.

Next year, I am going to build sandcastles!

Frequent Flyer!

I went on my first airplane trip! Mommy, Daddy, and I went to Indianapolis because I wanted to meet my Great Grandma. Great Grandma and I had so much fun together. We sat and played and did a lot of smiling at each other. She thought that I was adorable and very active!! I showed her all of my tricks! I also met my Great Uncle Gary, Great Aunt Sheryl, and my mommy’s cousin Tamara and her two children, Ashlyn and Bryant. Ashlyn is eight years old and she loved to play with me. Bryant said he didn’t really like babies, but I loved watching him play with his cars.

I loved flying. Daddy bought me my own seat on all of the flights. I sat there during take off and landing and also when I wanted to nap. The rest of the time I played. I was so well behaved on the flights that people commented on what a good traveler I was! I guess that means I get to go on our next big trip, which is to Orlando in November.

Another fun thing about Indiana was that it was cold! Mommy put sweaters on me and wrapped a blanket over me when I was in the car seat. We went on an eight mile run on Saturday and I wore a hat to keep my head warm. The trees were changing color and it was so beautiful. It was a big change from Texas!

I also started saying “da-da”. I can have an entire conversation just saying “da-da” over and over.

I love my Great Grandma – she is so much fun!
