Memorial Day Cookouts Bring Over My Friends

I apparently have a lot of friends. No one really told me this. On Sunday, we had a cookout at our house. Lots of these friend people came over and made lots of noise while I tried to sleep.

[flickr style=”float: left”]photo:2524808308[/flickr]Cookouts are confusing to babies. All of a sudden, we’re thrust outside where there’s wind and sun and bugs, Daddy sets stuff on fire and there’s all sorts of smoke and my brother runs around and makes lots of noise with a bunch of other kids who come over to play. Kinda makes me wonder whose big idea this thing was in the first place.

Actually, we had a bunch of people over to our house and had a really good time. My new friend Lucy came to my house for the first time. Lots of Mommy and Daddy’s friends came over. A lot of them have kids, too, so we had a big yard full of fun.

Mommy and Daddy took lots of pictures, which are all below. There are also pictures of Grant’s new sandbox extension and video of him and me watching cartoons over on his website. It’s at GrantFalls.com in case you were living under a rock or something.

Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sweaterhood

[flickr style=”float: right”]photo:2523778229[/flickr]My Nana has these friends she calls her Ya-Yas. I’m not really sure what that means, but apparently it has something to do with knitting. They all sent me sweaters and booties and hats and stuff they made themselves. My Daddy just rolls his eyes and says, “That’s what Target is for.”

I don’t know what that means.

Anyway, Mommy spent an hour one day trapsing me into and out of clothes to take pictures of me in all my new gear. It was my first fashion show. Here are the pictures, along with a few from the last couple of weeks hanging out with my Mommy, Daddy and brother Grant.

Mommies Are The Best

[flickr style=”float: right”]photo:2485765946[/flickr]This week was a lot of fun and all about Mommies. My Daddy’s Mommy, my Geike, came for a whole week with my cousin Taylor. We went to the FunDome so she and my brother, Grant, could let off some steam. Geike went down the big slide which everyone thought was funny. I didn’t get it.

There are lots of pictures, too, of me hanging out with my Geike and Taylor and Grant. We had fun around the house this week. Grant and Taylor even got to meet a real police man. See Grant’s website for pictures.

Then we had Mother’s Day and all my other cousins – Zack, Brandon, Noah, Halley, Riley and Bella – came to Nana and Poppa’s house. My Mommy was there, Michelle was there and Nana was there for Mother’s Day. We had a big meal and played a lot. (I slept most of the time, but what the heck.) I got to sit with my cousin Bella, who is only six months older than me.

Then we went to my house to play with Sophie. I don’t really know who she is, but Grant sure likes her. Sophie’s Mommy, Megan, held me while Grant and Sophie climbed on her. She apparently has a baby in her belly. He’s going to be a boy. Great. All I need is another boy to deal with.

I Have Cousins?

[flickr style=”float: left”]photo:2469943214[/flickr]So I’m two weeks old and my normal routine of sleeping for two or three hours, eating, pooping an sleeping for two or three hours got seriously discombobulated this weekend. It was Derby weekend in Louisville. My cousins came up to Nana’s house for her cousins Derby Party.

I have cousins? Who knew?

I’m getting a little bigger and eating more now. Mommy had to move me to soy milk because I had the runs. I feel better now that I’m eating that stuff. Daddy says is hippie milk. I don’t know what that means.

Here’s more pictures. I’m excited about this week. My Geike comes to visit.
