My life at 1 month

My parents wanted me to send out an eCard, but I told them that newsletters were so 2005. Then they suggested myspace, but I was like... "what do you think I am, 14?". I showed them what all the cool kids are doing these days... and setup a blog (they needed a little help). Here's a short update on my life so far. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

I entered the outside world 5 weeks ago and in that time I've been livin' it up. My mom and dad do all the work while I mostly just eat and sleep. I have two kitties that are also in my family (that's Allie with me up above). We play together and occasionally the all black one, named Ethel, will take a swipe at me when I'm sleeping. Someday when I'm big enough I plan to get her back!

I have met tons of people in recent weeks. Last week I met my grandparents who now live in Texas, and my great grandparents from California as well as my other great grandparents who live in Yakima. Mom and Dad took me on a road trip to Yakima so I could meet them and see where Dad spent most of his childhood. After seeing Yakima, I can tell you that I'm sure glad I'm living in Portland! I also met my Aunt Carrie who lives in Seattle and Mom's extended family from Boise. So many names and faces to remember...

I recently began smiling and you would think that I've done something earth shattering, like found a cure for AIDS, by the reactions I've gotten. My only complaint so far is this thing called "bath-time." A couple times a week Mom gets me completely undressed, puts me in the kithcen sink, and takes a wet rag to me. Let's just say I've had finer moments. Other than that, like I said, I can't complain much. My mom and dad and everyone else I've met have been really great. I get lots of kisses and holding and nobody expects too much of me in return. Mom and Dad are just happy with me eating and sleeping all day. :)
