Slipper Hands

My absolute favorite thing to do is crawl around with slippers or shoes on my hands. I do this ALL day long and have been for the last week or so. If I go to play with a toy I take the slippers with me, set them down by my toy, then put them back on my hands to crawl on to the next thing. I've always been fascinated with people's shoes and am constantly staring at feet when we are out and about. I am also very particular about keeping pairs together. If there is a big pile of different shoes/slippers together I always pick out a pair to crawl around with. I will sometimes carry only one around but never mix and match pairs. Slippers are my favorite but I'll try out anybody's shoes at least once!

Latest Stats

I had my 12-month checkup today and here are my stats:

Height: 32.2" (96th percentile)
Weight: 25lb 8oz (80%)
Head Circ: 18.74" (78%)

I had to get shots, ouch! I cried REALLY hard for about 20 seconds and then I was fine :-) I have to go back for my second batch in a few weeks.

Everything checked out great. I'm right on track with my growth and development!

Our Trip

Mommy and I had so much fun in Baker. We spent a few nights with Great Aunt Kathy. I took a bunch of toys and made a huge mess in Kathy's living room.

Great Grandma came over every afternoon and we got to spend lots of time together. We played pat-a-cake and she taught me how to crazily wave my arms around in the air. I loved standing at her walker because it had a bar that was the perfect height for me.

Granddad came over and visited in the evenings and we got to read bedtime stories together.

After we spent a few nights in Baker we headed out to the ranch for a couple days. Of course, I had to get a good nap in on Granddad's chest.... it's still my favorite place to sleep!

I got to see almost the whole Lewis clan. Teagan and I crawled around and played together a little. Mostly we just stared at eachother :-)

On our way home we stopped to say goodbye to Great G-ma and G-aunt Kathy. I love my great g-ma so much I leaned over and pressed my face against hers (my version of a kiss) for a long time before we left. I'm going to miss her a lot but hopefully we'll make another trip to Baker again soon!

It was a lot of fun visiting with everyone but man, was I exhausted! I fell asleep just outside of Baker (holding my socks) and slept for 4 hours...almost all the way to Portland!

Baker City

We wanted to make sure we got to see everybody before the snow comes so Mommy and I made a quick decision to leave Daddy and Isabelle behind and come to Baker for the week.

I've adjusted to the new routine pretty well considering I'm switching from formula to milk AND cutting my 6th tooth! I'm very happy during the day but a little unsure at night. That's ok though, I just get to play until I can hardly keep my eyes open and then I go right to sleep :-)

We've been taking quite a few pictures so watch for them to be posted soon!
