Birthday Celebration

On Sunday, lots of folks came over to help me celebrate my birthday. This is just a picture of the party getting started!

Mommy seems really happy about something.

The piñata session was a bit chaotic, but it looked like the other kids enjoyed it. It was a pull string piñata rather than a piñata to hit although some of the kids clearly missed that memo!
A caterpillar sat on my cake!
I watched people while they sang "Happy Birthday". I don't know why everyone was looking at me, though!

What is this gooey, sticky thing in front of me? I better check it out. Because I'm a baby, that means lick it.

It's actually very tasty, whatever this thing is. Yum!

Hi, I'm Alex and I like hanging out, watching TV and long crawls on the beach.
Mommy put a bunch of toys and other household objects in front of me. The objects are meant to represent different occupations. There were objects such as a stethoscope, for doctor, and a calculator, for engineer. I went straight for the harmonica, for musician. Sorry, Grandma Lai.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon/Evening

I like lazy afternoons, just hanging out with my big sister. We pretended that the blanket stretched out between the sofa and the ottomans was a bathtub. Here is a picture of me stepping into the bathtub to join my big sister.
Mommy let us play with a few ribbons saved from other occasions. Jordan thought it would be a good idea to pretend I was a little doggie and that she was holding the leash!

Dinner Time Antics

It's dinner time! Feed me!

After dinner, big sister Jordan and I played a game that involved patting ourselves on the head. We thought it was hilarious.

This is the most comfortable boat ever (not)! This picture was taken a few days ago.

Jonamac Orchards

Today we went to an apple farm that also had some fun activities. I didn't quite know what to make of the corn box. Mommy thought that at first I was scared of all the kernels of corn, but the environment grew on me.
I got very excited about the animals in the petting zoo. I was making lots of "Ooh! Ooh! O-oh!" noises and jumping up and down in Mommy's arms excitedly.

Playing Together

Mommy says it's a miracle that, even if it is a brief moment in time, that we are playing together peacefully.

Boo Game

I think saying "Buh!" and startling Mommy and Daddy is hilarious. It is one of my favorite games!

Little Puppy Dog

I like crawling around holding a bowl between my teeth. Mommy thinks I act like a pit bull.

Naperville Carnival

Today we went to the carnival. Actually, I stayed in my stroller all day while Jordan rode on rides! At least I had lots of Cheerios to play with and eat.

Breakfast Mess

This is how I eat breakfast these days. Mommy has to use 4 wet cloths on me to get me clean. The other day, she even had to give me a bath.

Evening Stroll

Tonight I put on my new Monsters Inc. shoes and went out for a nice stroll. Big sister Jordan put on her roller skates and practiced skating.

11 Months Old!
