Here are some of the highlights of our week:
Monday we went to Vancouver to have dinner and carve pumpkins with Grandpa Randy, Robyn and Jackson. Dinner was a YUMMY squash soup (I know it was yummy because Mommy let me have a little taste!) After dinner, we carved some of the pumpkins and decorated the others with potato head parts. They turned out very well!
I think I might like the scoop more than the pumpkin!
Here is Robyn and Jackson's final product!
This is the pumpkin that Mommy carved. Looks good on our porch huh? For those of you who were at M & D's wedding, you will be pleased to know that the "battery operated" candles from the reception are getting new life!
(Apparently if you have rub Vaseline on the carved part of the pumpkin it helps it last longer. We didn't have any Vaseline, but Mommy used some of her left over nipple gel and it seemed to do the trick! )
My first golf bag...Daddy is so proud!
Tuesday we hosted something called "girls night". Mommy's friends came over and they had dinner, drank wine, and TALKED a lot. I think they may have even done some gossiping :) When Mommy was at the store getting the groceries for dinner she bought me a special treat....banana rice puff cereal! Check out the video of me eating it! (Unfortunately though it is doing bad things to my tummy. So as much as I love the taste, Mommy is putting it on the back shelf for now :(
Wednesday we didn't really leave the house, so by late afternoon Mommy was feeling a bit stir crazy. So we called up our friends The Budds and they invited us over. They have 3 kids that I love to play with. So, I was entertained and Mommy got some adult conversation with their Mommy, Sarah.
Thursday we ran some errands, including getting our oil changed. When we walked into the waiting room, there was a Daddy and a baby girl who had our same car seat. Mommy started talking to them, just to find out that the other girl, whose name was Eliotte, was born the EXACT same day as me (different hospitals though, we asked!) What are the odds?? We played together happily the whole time we were waiting for our car to be ready!
We are really looking forward to a fun, and relaxing weekend, spending good family time together! Plus the weather is supposed to be nice.
Hope everyone else has a great weekend!

The rest of Sunday was mostly spent relaxing and recuperating at home (except Daddy had a lot of homework to do!) I did however, unveil a few new tricks in time for my 7 month birthday.
"the tupperware drawer"
My other new trick is a really cute wave that I do mostly with my fingers opening and closing. Oh, and I only know how to wave to myself. Unfortunately it's not captured on camera yet! Neither is my "scooching". I am sooooooo close to crawling. I get up on my hands and knees and rock back and forth. Monday I did two arm-over-arm belly crawls. M & D, hold onto your hats. Once I learn to crawl there is no stopping me!!

My first carousel ride
My first amusement ride
Braving a walk on the beach in the pouring rain
Trip to the Seaside Aquarium. We fed the seals (see this one catch the fish in its mouth??)
We also saw a huge octopus,
and got to touch the sea anemones and starfish (Mommy's favorite)
Next time you are at the Seaside Aquarium, make sure to read the Oregonian article about the drunk man who broke into the aquarium and "crab-napped" Victor, the largest crab they ever had. The crab was somewhere between 80-100 years old and unfortunately died subsequent to the trauma. Stupid man, I mean who has a pot big enough to cook that crab in?!?
Lowlights of the trip include: Ducks, Seahawks, and Cubbies all having a losing weekend!

9. The grunts and red face when I am going #2...ewww gross!
8. My babbling....can you say "mama"?
7. My panting--when I am real excited
6. My social cough--I use this when I think should be getting more attention than I am
5. My sneeze (achoo--ee)
4. When I blow raspberry kisses (better when I don't have peas in my mouth :)
3. When I pull something over my own eyes to incite a game of peek-a-boo
2. My infectious laugh
1. My new smile: it is so wide and big that I squint my eyes at the same time. Too precious!!
So far the only one we have captured on film is the raspberries...I refuse to perform for the camera when Mommy and Daddy want me to!
