Hello from California

Hello from California! We're off to the east coast and Europe tomorrow, so I probably won't have a chance to post for a few weeks. I'll be visiting family and friends scattered across the globe. Hopefully I'll come back with a French accent so I can impress the ladies with it.

'Boo and I have been hanging out a lot recently. He's a silly cat, playing dead in acknowledgement of my superiority.

Here's us sharing my cool new red throne on the first hot day of spring.
p.s. I'm not wearing pants.

Happy First Birthday to Me!

It was my first birthday yesterday. And it was AWESOME!
What I did on my birthday:
  • Slept in for 45 min so Mom could sleep in also.
  • Got some presents, including a card from Linneaand some presents from my grandparents,the best part of which was a clear plastic cover for a soft book.They also gave me a nifty jumpsuit. I'm going to try to bully my way onto the NASA Ames campus with it. Maybe I'll score a ride in the centrifuge.
  • When for a swing in my new swing in the tree in the backyard.
  • Had a picnic lunch at the park with Mom & Dad, my Grandma, Old-Grandma, cousin Jennica, and Megan and Mirabelle. I got totally awesome presents and got to eat my birthday banana cream pie! Thanks everybody!
  • Had a long nap after all the playing at the park.
  • Went to communal dinner and got shreikenaded with "Happy Birthday". I did not like that. I did like the vanilla ice cream cake.
  • I touched the candle flame. That wasn't fun. But at least it satisfied my quota for daily dangerousness.

Solid food?

I'm really enjoying eating solid food now, even if I puke it back up half of the time. Here I am eating some freeze-dried fruits and my favorite, puff stars.
I puked about 1 minute after this picture was taken. Dad's getting really good at catching most of it in my bib pocket so I don't make a huge mess.

The three musketeers Mark, Megan, and Mirabelle came over last night. I spent a quick few minutes before they showed up swiffering the floor.

Then Dad, Mark, Chris (our houseguest) and I nerded out.
We were watching a racing video called "the pass".

Playing with the big boys

Two weekends ago I got to play ultimate at UC Santa Cruz with my Dad and his college buddies. It was great fun! The pictures just arrived, courtesy of JJ. Here's our team photo:

Like father, like son. Except I didn't get schooled in the endzone as much as he did. Dad's old.
Ultimate takes a lot of energy! Good thing there were a lot of energy drinks on hand.

Early Birthday Present

Mom could not wait to give me my birthday present. So when I woke up from my nap, I was the proud owner of a brand new red tricycle - complete with a bell and tassels. But, because I never had a bike before, I didn't know what to do with it.
Mom, a total pro at bicycles, set me up and I was on my way!
WooHoo! Riding a bike is so much fun! Thanks Mom!

Count Down to My Birthday

My first birthday is in 9 days...
Even though a forward facing carseat is reserved for the one-year olds, my parents let me have the privelege a few days early. I really like facing forward in the car; I get to see where I'm going and I get to perfect my backseat driving. Here I am pointing in the correct direction Mom should go:
Next step: learning how to operate the car on my own!
