My Best Bud (in utero)

This is my soon to be Best Bud, Aidan. He's pictured inside his mommy's belly. He kicked me though, so he knows I was there. We had Aidan's mommy and daddy over to our house for dinner last Friday night. Mommy was saying that Carrie and Andrew should enjoy their last days just the two of them before Aidan comes. I'm not sure what that means, but it was nice to have the company. My daddy and Aidan's daddy were best friends when they were little, so Aidan and I plan to be just as close. I can't wait to meet him. He is due to come out on November 30th. I'll have my mom check my calendar, but I think I'm free. She can set up a play date!

Round Orange Things!

We had great weather this past weekend, so Grandma came over and we went to Hill Ridge Farms and had some fun! Because the weather was so nice...I think the whole city of Raleigh had the same idea! Waiting in the lines wasn't too much fun, but I enjoyed the activities. We got to ride behind a neat tractor while sitting on bales of hay. The tractor took us to this gigantic field full of these round orange things all over the grass. Mommy told me that they were pumpkins. I really enjoyed playing in the middle of them and trying to grab the stems!

It was a little bit cool, so mommy dressed me in my Elmo costume for warmth!

That's 26.5 inches tall! Does this mean I can ride the roller coaster now?

Quality Entertainment

This is a picture of me sleeping in my crib. Mommy took this photo on Saturday morning. This was the longest time that I have ever slept. I slept from 9:30 p.m. till she woke me up at 8 a.m. I guess that now that I'm having 3 meals a day my tummy stays sastified long enough for me to keep "normal" sleeping hours.

I'd just like to let everybody know out there that sometimes when you get bored I have found the best entertainment around. Hopefully you have one of the machines in your home. It is the neatest thing and I love to watch it. Mommy puts all of my clothes inside it and pushes a button and the next thing I know, there is water pouring inside and my clothes start to spin around and around. I just love the spinning colors and the noise too. It is great. I could watch it for hours! I even sometimes peek over to the machine when I'm in my highchair hoping that it might turn on for my enjoyment.

6 Months Old!

Today mommy gave me this new thing called a cup. When we went to the doctor's office today he told mommy to start giving me juice. Mommy went to the store today and bought me 3 cups and gave me a little pear juice to try. I really liked it. Although I'm not quite sure how this cup operates and sometimes I chew on the handles.

It's hard to believe that I'm now 6 months old, huh? Time flies when you are a baby! This is a picture of me on my 1/2 birthday. I now weigh 19 lbs and 1 oz and am ~ 26 inches long. Daddy says that I look like a big boy now.

Silly Katie. Mommy caught you giving me a kiss in the ear. I do love my Katie girl though. We play every day and even when I'm too rough with Katie she takes it. I love to pull her hair. It makes me giggle. A few days ago I even pulled out one of her whiskers, but she didn't mind. Dogs are the best!

Boo-Boo's New Ride

Today one of mommy's co-workers came by the house on his new bike. They call him Andy and he calls me "boo-boo". I love Andy, he is one cool guy. He even let me sit on his bike and pretend I was driving it. Andy says one day we'll go for a ride, but mommy says she's not sure. Anyways, I sure look cool on my bike!

Family Reunion

This is me and one of our NC Senators, A.B. Swindell. The "A" in his name stands for Albin, which is also my daddy's middle name. A.B. really liked me and stole me away from mommy which I didn't mind too much. I made sure that mommy stayed close by me though. A.B. isn't related to the "Boone" family for which this reunion was for, but he is a close family friend and usually shows up.

This is me, Grandmother, and mommy's cousin, Meggi. We went to the "Boone" family reunion on the last Sunday in September. They tell me that this reunion has been happening every year since 1940. This was my first time and I had fun. Although I didn't eat any of the BBQ it sure looked good! I hope to be back next year.

Grandmother's house

This past Thursday night mommy, daddy, and I took a trip to my great grandmother's house. She lives in Nashville, NC. I had a great time but I think my grandmother had the best time. She hadn't seen me in about a month and she kept telling me how much I've changed and grown. Grandmother even bought me some wooden blocks to play with. Grandmother made mommy and daddy her famous pancakes for breakfast and she offered to make me some when I can eat them. I can't wait!
