I met Santa!

I've had an exciting few weeks! I went to Orlando for Thanksgiving and met my other great grandmother, along with many great aunts, great uncles, and second cousins. I am having so much fun here!

I have now eaten sweet potatoes, green beans, squash, carrots, apples, and bananas. Yum!! I still love my cereal best, but am learning to like the other food, too! Daddy is still making all of my food for me at home. He is such an amazing cook!

I am getting to be a pretty fast crawler. I can also pull up on pretty much anything now. I try to move along the furniture, but I usually forget to bring my legs with me! Oops!

I learned how to clap - it's so much fun!

I met Santa yesterday. I'm not sure what I think of him...

I've been pretty busy so haven't had a chance to write for a couple of weeks. So I'll give you a quick update. Mommy and Daddy took me to a pumpkin patch. I heard Mommy say she wanted to get some great pictures of me. However, I was so amazed with the stems on the pumpkins, that I couldn’t take a break to look at the camera. Mommy and Daddy got a lot of pictures of the top of my head!

I participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk. There were lots of people there and we all took a walk together – what a great idea!

I also started crawling a few weeks ago. As you know, I’ve had the crawling position down for about a month, but about a week before my six month birthday, I was on the move! I really like to go after things that aren't mine - like remotes, phones, cameras, wires, etc. That's the fun stuff! Mommy and Daddy always move it before I get there though - I need to work on my speed!

I celebrated my big six month birthday!! Gramma made me a birthday hat, which I loved and wore for hours.

I started eating real food! Mommy and Daddy (ok, really it's all Daddy) is making my food for me. I started with sweet potatoes and they're yummy! Daddy's a great cook!

I went to Wurstfest on opening night. I just love music and dancing so I loved it! The next morning, I did the Wurstfest Five Mile Run. It was cold (see the picture of me in the hat). Before I was born, Mommy always beat Daddy when they ran. Well, Mommy said she passed the Girl Power on to me and Daddy and I beat Mommy in the race!
For Halloween I was a ladybug - I loved my costume. I don't mind things on my head at all. Mommy and Daddy thought I was the cutest bug around!

Those are the highlights!!
