Buenos Dias from Mexico:

The Real Housewife is on a much needed get away.  It started out a little rough, and we got here a day late, but life is good now. Nothing that can't be remedied by some of this:

And this (the nail polish just screams "Mexico" don't you think?)

And maybe some birdwatching

And people watching

And then we'll be refreshed for the job of watching this little nugget

Many thanks to my parents, whom I know have their hands full. Mom, see why my house isn't spotless?
Adios from Mexico!

Wow! I'm Six Months Old! - A Post from the Real Baby

My mom and dad have been pretty busy since we moved to our new house.  I guess it's a lot of work to have a cute baby like me around.  I just turned six months old and I'm into all sorts of stuff.  I have two teeth now, but I won't open my mouth wide enough for Mom to get a picture.  I like to mess with her that way!  I thought I'd share a few pictures of what I've been doing lately.  As usual, I have lots of visitors.

Grammy Marva came to visit and take care of me during the garage sale. She couldn't believe how much I loved avocado! I guess "back in the day" babies didn't eat avocado! Mmmmm!

Grandma Mary & Grandpa Bill came to visit me, too!

Grandpa Bill is teaching me how to fall asleep on the couch!

I think my Grandpa Bob could have taught me that, too!
I'm also getting to be very mobile! I'm backing myself all over the place!

And when I can't get myself out of a jam, I get mad!

Mom says it's only a matter of time before I get my arms and legs going forward--sometimes you have to take a few steps back first, she says, just like in life!
I'm grabbing at things a lot, too. Look what came tumbling down at the yarn shop!

Luckily the "yarn ladies" weren't mad!
I've been a little fussier lately because of my teeth, I think, so Mom's been hauling me around in this get-up.

She says it's easier on her back, and I don't mind because I get to go wherever she goes.
Paddy and I are still best friends and we are starting to play more and more. He doesn't play with my toys, but he brings his to me -- see his deer antler? Not the best toy for a baby, so Mom has to watch us carefully!

So, that's what I've been up to. Sort of a lot for a six-month old, and I've still got lots to learn and lots of new food to try!
Hopefully Mom will get in gear and do a post on our new house soon. The remodel turned out really great, and my room is almost done, too!
I hope you have lots of fun this week!
