I apologize for not writing more often in my blog, but you must understand that in my life there is never a dull moment. I can hardly believe the summer is almost over… Dad is still out of town a lot for work, so Mom and I have spent a lot of time with Grandma and Grandpa Anderson as well as with other family members and friends. I went to my first happy hour at the Parkerhouse Restaurant with Mom, Grandma Anderson, and my friends Mary and Charla (That's me with Mary up above, with the Columbia River in the background). The food was good, the view couldn’t be better, and I got to enjoy some good company. I hope I get to go again!
When Dad is home, however, we make sure to do lots of cool stuff with him too. I got to go to my first Oregon state fair with Mom and Dad, Chris and Katie, Fred, Sara and Kate. I saw some cool crafts, a few live farm animals, and even tried my first old fashioned soda fountain drink (well, I don't know if I was actually able to try any, but this photo sure looks like I did!).
At home, I’ve been playing a lot on my new floor gym. I got it used from craigslist and I could laugh at those funny toys hanging above me for hours! I have also been sleeping for longer stretches at night because of all the activities going on during the day. Mom still looks pretty tired when I wake her up though, so maybe I’ll start sleeping through the night here pretty soon…
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention my last doctor’s appointment. It was going well at first….they weighed me, measured me and gave me a thorough checking over and just when I thought we were about to leave, they gave me a couple sticks in the legs! I only cried a little while though, so Mom didn’t get too upset over it either. The doctor told me I was still in the 50th percentile for weight and length, so things are looking good.
