My new Trike (June 22-June29)

All I need to say is thank you thank you thank you to Nana and Papa. They bought me a new trike a few weeks ago and it's the best toy ever! I'm not big enough yet to reach the pedals but Mom and Dad have been pushing me around each night in the neighborhood. I can't wait till I can reach the pedals so I can take off on my own. We haven't done too much this week, last Sunday I went swimming at Grandma and Granpa's pool and then Mom and Dad took me to our pool on Tuesday. I like swimming but I hate being splashed. Dad is the king of splashing me! This weekend Mom and Dad have another wedding to go to so I'm staying at Grandma and Grandpa's on Saturday. I can't wait!! Grandpa bought me a bunch of new toys so hopefully they'll let me play with them all night. I'm still not walking but Mom and Dad make me practice almost every night. I usually take about 3-4 steps and then fall because I get tired. One of these days I'll surprise them and start walking. I can do it but I'm going to get the most out of this crawling thing first. Once I walk for the first time there's no turning back to crawling so I'm going to milk this as long as I can. Talk to you all later.

My 1st Haircut

On Saturday Mom and Dad took me to get my very first haircut. My hair was getting really long and Mom and Dad thought I was starting to look like a little girl. I cried most of the haircut as I really don't like people touching my hair and neck but in the end I really like it. They had some pretty cool chairs that Nana would have liked. We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around Southlands and then went over to the Shaeffers for a camping trip in the backyard. I stayed up till 9pm and had lots of fun watching the fire and playing with Jay and Cameron. Today Grandma and Granpa are coming over and we're going to go swimming. I love swimming!!! See you later

Father's Day

This past weekend we celebrated Father's Day for Dad. He's leaving on Friday for Kirby's wedding in South Dakota so we decided to celebrate a week early. On Saturday me and Dad hung out most of the morning as Mom had to go into work. We spent lots of time outside as the weather was really nice. I really like this summer time thing but Mom and Dad keep putting this stupid hat on me so I don't get sunburned (Makes me look like a Fisherman). I'm getting closer and closer to trying to take those first steps but I'm still a little afraid of not holding onto anything. My Tonka truck has been a life-saver as I can hold onto that and push it around the neighborhood with worrying about falling. I did have my first experience with hitting my head on the concrete this weekend but I was ok (I'm tough). I thought Father's Day was for Dad but I found out this weekend that I get gifts too!!! Nana and Papa Berger bought me a car seat a few months back but I've been too small to fit into until now. I can't believe how much I enjoy the car rides now. I get to look straight out the car like Mom and Dad and I finally am feeling like a big boy. On Sunday Grandma and Grandpa Finch, Uncle Ryan and Katherine all came over for Dad's dinner. We had a good time hanging outside as the weather was nice out. Grandpa was making me laugh again with his funny stories and Uncle Ryan was flipping me upside down all afternoon. I always have fun when they come over. Dad flies out on Friday morning to Bismarck to see Nana and Papa and then leaves for South Dakota later that day. I wish I were going too because i really miss them but hopefully they'll be out later this summer and I can show them how much I've grown up. Have a fun weekend Dad and say hi to Nana and Papa for me..
