Sea World!

Monday, August 25, 2008

Last Saturday Mommy and Daddy took me to Sea world in Orlando. I had sooo much fun! I saw Sharks, Dolphins, Polar Bears, lots of fish, and a Walrus! I Loved it! I just chilled out in my stroller looking around at everything! I liked "Shark Encounter" the best! You walk through a big tunnel and all the sharks are swimming above you! I was looking up and getting excited everytime one would pass by! Daddy got passes for 2 years so we can go whenever we want. I wanted to go back this weekend but mommy and daddy had a garage sale so we couldn't. But mommy said we will probably go again next weekend!
Here are a few pictures from my first trip there!
Chillin in my stroller...don't look too happy because moomy stop strolling me to take my pic!!

Stopped off for a bit to eat. Daddy told me to look at the camera while mommy got my food here is me looking and also thinking "mmmm can't wait for food!"

She CAUGHT me!

Well I figured I would finally roll over on camera for mommy so she would STOP sticking the camera in front of my face everytime she lays me on the floor. Ever since I started this rolling over thing she has been trying to "catch " me but I think its funny to stop as soon as she gets that stinkin camera out! I will just roll all over the place and then mommy will run for the camera and turn it on ..then I will just look at the camera with this blank look like..."what??...I'm not doing anything!" haha! But I started feeling bad for her , so today I just kept rolling. Mommy was sooo happy she caught me!
But after she turned the camera off she picked me up and I got MAD!!!! I really was trying to roll my way into the kitchen and get me some more of that yummy homemade baby food but she just had to stop me! So I let her have it! Then I got my way,...haha...I got yummy pears and peaches!
Well..there you have it! I hope you all are happy. I know my thinking was that mommy would stop with the videos once she "caught" me...but now I'm thinking its only gonna make things worst! Now she is gonna try to catch me when I start crawling, walking, talking,...wait...when is it gonna stop...oh geez...she better not try to record my first date!!!! Oh what did I just get myself into!
Daddy...PLEASE make mommy stop!!!

Homemade sweet potatoes, apples, and green beans..Oh My!!!

So lately mommy has been ALL about saving money. She has been looking for all the best deals and even gets excited when she sees the savings at the bottom of the receipts...what a nerd! Well in an effort to save some money and to keep me super healthy mommy started making all my baby food! A friend of hers, Jen, told her about a website called and she spent hrs on it the other night after I went to I said, what a nerd! So Friday when mommy got off work she picked me up from nana's house and we went to the grocery store to get some fruits and veggies for my baby food. That took a while...mommy said it was because school was starting back for the big kids so all the other mommies were out buying school supplies....all I know is that I was TIRED!!! I feel asleep in the car on the way home....

Apparently while I was taking my nap mommy made a BIG mess in the kitchen!!

She eventually got it all cleaned up and made Apples, Banana-Apple Mash, Sweet Peas, Green Beans, Sweet Potatoes, and Avocados!! She still has Peaches and Pears to make but she said she has to wait until they are ripe. Here is me with all the baby food!!! yea...real cute mom...stick frozen baby food all over me!!!
Photobucket Photobucket
She freezes it in ice cube trays( yep its good in the freezer for 3 months!!), then empties them once frozen and puts them in zip lock bags with labels. Each food cube is 1 oz of baby food! So yea...I have plenty of food for a while!!!! Mommy wanted me to tell you all the savings....again...nerd
So she had her receipt in her pants and washed them! But she can pretty much remember how much everything was....she spend about $18 on everything. All in all she made 176 cubes of baby food!!!! Thats equal to a little over 70 stage 1 jars (2.5oz) and a little over 35 jars of stage 2 (5 ozs) I am eating about 4 somewhere in the middle! If my mommy bought Earth's Best brand its .99 a jar for the stage 2 so it would have cost her over 35 bucks with tax!!! But it didn't even cost her 20! I don't really care that she is saving...I am just happy that its so yummy! Here I am eating the final product!! Homemade sweet potatoes...fresh out of the oven too!!!

Aunt Stephanie was feeding them to me....she needs to take lesson on feeding me from mommy...she just doesn't do it fast enough! Exspecially with something like fresh, still warm sweet potatoes!!

wow...what a day! All that grocery shopping...then having to watch mommy cook all that food, then eating all those sweet potatoes! I was so tired that I feel asleep in daddy's arms while he was playing nascar!

Beach Wedding

Monday, August 11, 2008


Yesterday was a fun day! I went to mommy and daddy's friend's wedding, Shawn and Janelle. Yep Shawn has the same name as me...just spelled different! And nope...I am not named after him! Daddy just liked the mommy made sure to spell it different. My daddy was in the wedding as the best man..or whatever they call that. He did a good job, and mommy kept saying that I looked just like him...actually, EVERYone was saying that. But I think it was just because daddy and I both had white shirts and kakhis...oh and the blue eyes. The wedding was really was on the beach. Mommy was REALLY worried that I was gonna started screaming or something when Janelle walked down the isle crying and ruin "the moment"...but I didn't. I actually didn't make a peep the WHOLE time. I was just relaxing on the beach. Mommy thought maybe it was something to do with being outside and the weather being so good. But little did she know, I was just too busy checking out that cute flower girl to make any noise! People couldn't get over how good and "smiley" I was. You would think these people had never seen a good, quite, laid back baby! Man I should have made some noise when they kept pitching my cheeky and telling me how chuncky I am though! Good thing I am not self consious!

All in all it was a good time! What baby could ask for any better...just chillin out, eating pears, and drinking a bottle while listening to Jack Johnson on the beach!
