Well, my parents have taken a long time to update my blog!  Below are pictures from August, 2008 - February 2009.  During that time I grew a couple inches and gained several pounds.  I run and jump, skip, climb and do all sorts of cool stuff now.  I still don't like to sleep all night in my crib by myself, but I'm getting pretty good at it.  My mom's cousin Priscila visited us for several months to improve her English, and I really liked having her here.  My sisters both started new schools and are really enjoying them, and a few weeks ago I started going to a day care where I have a friend named Craig - I really like playing there with him!!  My sisters are swimming and playing soccer and basketball -- I really like those things too but no one will let me join in!  I'm saying lots of words but mostly people don't seem to know what they are ??  I hope this gets better soon; it's frustrating!  By and large I have had a great few months and am really excited about growing up some more.

DECEMBER:

Our Christmas tree, just before I pulled on it and it fell and broke a bunch of the ornaments - pretty exciting!

Snow everywhere!

My Dad likes taking pictures of all the snow.

Me!

They were all talking about how cold it was (0F), but I didn't feel cold at all?

Really a lot of snow!

My new ride is cozy while we shovel snow.

Me (real cold) at the park next to our house taking pictures in the snow for our Christmas card.

My Mom is all excited about our new car, but I can't see what the fuss is all about - my seat seems just the same as it ever was!

My Dad can't stop putting in pictures of the Echo Mountain Bike Trail!

Long Bike Ride

On Sunday this week my sisters and I went on a 15.8 mile ride with my Dad.  We went out to the west of Pendleton to Rieth and then up Birch Creek Road and then across on Korvola Road to Mckay.  We had a picnic along the way and played in the creek at McKay Park.  


Sophia and Paula taking a short break midway through the ride.


Picnic time.




Sophia and the scenery on Birch Creek Road.

Oliver, comfy and ready to go.
