Happy Mothers' Day!

Today was my mom's and my first Mothers' Day! Daddy and I got her a new scale so she can really tell how big I am getting. It said I weighed exactly 23 pounds today! I'm also getting really tall. According to Mommy's tape measure she thinks I'm about 30 1/2 inches, but we'll see for sure in a couple weeks when I go in for my 9 month well check. They tell me this time I won't get any shots!

We had Grandma and Grandpa McKeever over for brunch with Dawn, Nathan and Tiernan. Daddy made pancakes. I heard they were really good, but I was napping while everyone ate. I helped Daddy get everything ready, though, while Mommy slept in. She likes to sleep. When I woke up from my nap I showed off all my tricks. I can tell you what a fish says, what a kitty says, and I can puff & blow like the cow in my "Baby Einstein, Mirror Me" book. I am also getting good at walking when I'm holding onto Mommy's hands. I crawl everywhere, even up the steps. Well, okay, only one step because then it gets a little scary and I need help getting down. But I stand up next to furniture now. I can get all sorts of stuff that I couldn't before like coasters, dirt from Daddy's plants, remote controls, and magazines. It's fun!

After my second nap we went to my Great-grandma Webers and hung out with that crowd. It was nice and warm out so I got to play in the grass in just a t-shirt! There were lots of people (32 people by my count) to play with and show my tricks. But I don't like showing my tricks to just anybody because sometimes I'm shy. I like to get to know people first. One thing I know is that all those people are noisy! They sat down to eat dinner in the garage and it kept getting louder and louder. I had to talk really loud, too, so Mommy could hear that I wanted to get out of my chair. But there was lots to look at, so when Mommy snuggled me in Grandma Lanz's stroller in my jammas with a blanket and my pacifier, I liked watching everybody.

But it was a busy day and I'm tired! Yawn! Maybe I'll sleep all night tonight... or not.
