Max & Daddy Day at Arnold’s Family Fun Center

Dad took me to a Arnold’s Family Fun Center for a little fun.

They have these sweet go karts.

Watch out Mario Andretti!

Videos From Punta Cana

Below are the videos dad took from Punta Cana.  First one is he and I having a great time in the pool.  He really enjoyed throwing me up in the sky and catching me.  The problem was that he puny girlie arms couldn’t do it more then 2 or 3 times before needing a break.

The second video is of us at the airport before boarding the plane.  It shows what a pleasant, easy and agreeable child I was during the trip.

I’m a little tea pot…

Who says I can’t fit?

Swimming, Playing in the Park and Some Laughing

Let me first apologize for my dad and the lack of updates.  He recently upgraded digital cameras and he has had a devil of a time getting all of the settings correct.  This technology stuff is not his strong suit.

Anyway, the first couple of photos were taken at the local Community Center, where I am taking a toddler swimming class.  I am enjoying the class very much.  The second batch of photos is of my parents most recent find, a local park that has all kinds of climbing apparatus and slides that are geared towards my age group.  I really enjoy going down the slide and running around the park.

Lastly, a few videos of me.  The first is my mom and I playing.  I just can’t get enough of her leg going over my head.  The  second video is me realizing I’m on camera.  I stop whatever I might be doing and become fixated on that wonderful lens!  Lastly, a video of me getting the hang of feeding myself.  Those spoons are mighty tricky!

A Host of New Funny Videos

OK, I have an update of three videos that should bring a nice chuckle to your day.  I’m always in the mood to entertain and there is not a day that goes by that I do not put a smile on my parents face with some new antic.  Here are some of my latest accomplishments…

1.  When I was very young, maybe 4-6 months old, my dad’s good friend Dr Paul Ufberg came by with his wife Jordy and their three children Jack, Ella and Charley.  When Dr Paul was down here, I observed his habit of walking around while talking on his phone.  This is my best impression of him, using my Mom’s phone.

2.  Recently, I have tried to move away from these childish sippy cups.  I’m still learning, but Mom is giving me tiny sips of water from a glass.  Yes, I know I knock my teeth against the glass.  Yes, I know I stick my tongue into the water.  Yes, I know most of it dribbles down my shirt.  Deal with it!

3.  Lastly, my walking has really improved.  Gone are the days of Frankenstein arms to balance.  That was so last week.  Now, I’ve moved on to climbing stairs.  I’m well aware that each stair reach’s my waist, but that has not stopped me from walking up the stairs one step at a time, with a little help from Dad.

My First Birthday Party

I had my 1st Birthday Party on Sunday February 14th, just 2 days before my actual birthday.  I had a great group of friends and family to help me celebrate.  The gift giving was very generous as was the icing on the cake.  Note the great job my Aunt Beth, Aunt Trish and Mom did on those Sesame Street cupcakes!  Jealous?

And a video…

Some new videos for a new year…

It is a new year so I wanted to add some new videos of some accomplishments…

A video of my first tentative steps.  Not running the Boston Marathon yet, but soon.

Here I am using a kitchen chair to act as my “walker”.  Why my parents by these toys and gadgets to aid in my walking is beyond me, this works fine!

Last, but not least, the newest thing I learned is to avoid getting all that nasty soapy water in my face when Mom washes my hair.  Here is a video of my lean-back technique.

    Happy Baby is Back

    I’ve had a tough last couple of months and I am only now getting back to normal.  I seem to catch everything and anything at daycare and Mom and Dad have now removed me from it.  In home care starts in December and I’m looking forward to not getting sick as often.

    Now that I am feeling better, my overall personality is much better.  I’m laughing, not crying as much and generally have a very positive disposition, as you can see here.

    Also, as a reminder, be sure to check out my Height and Weight chart at the top of the page.  I just made a visit to the doctor for my 9 month checkup (everything was fine).

    A Video and an Explanation

    First, I must apologize for the lack of posts.  I’ve had a tough last few weeks and I simply have not been in the mood for fun pictures or videos.  I got sick about 3 weeks ago and was not feeling my best.  I also got two more teeth in (that makes six!) so the whole teething thing has been pretty rough on both my parents and me.

    Just last week, I was diagnosed with another ear infection (third in two months) and I was also diagnosed with a Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection.  This infection has led to a lot of coughing, trouble sleeping and just general misery.

    That being said, I’m feeling much better now.  I’m looking forward to spending Halloween with my Aunt Trish because Mom and Dad are attending a wedding.  Just to let everyone know I’m doing much better, this video should calm everyone’s fears!  Should have many more videos and pictures of some new accomplishments, including my crawling, some early steps and my first pair of shoes!  So exciting…For now, enjoy this video.

    I can sit up without help or sit on pumpkins, not both.

    So, two new developments in my life this week.  I have successfully been able to get from a lying down position to a sitting position without help.  I first accomplished this when my mom looked away.  I was on my back, she looked away and whammo, I was on my tush.  This, of course, threw her for a loop.  So, she whipped out the video camera and caught the second occurrence of this for you all to enjoy.  As you can tell, I was very exciting about this milestone.  I also did this one morning to surprise my mom.  She came in to my bedroom to check on me and, ta-da, I’m sitting up in my crib.

    The second are some pictures taken by my Aunt Tricia picking pumpkins.
