I thought I'd write another short blog so I could post some pics for you all to enjoy. The above picture was taken yesterday when my mom took me over to see my friends, Gabby and Cassie, and to take some photos of them. They live out in Brush Prairie and have some horses that I enjoyed getting to know. I even touched this horse on the nose!

I thought I should update you on my last doctor's visit. It went pretty well, though I did not care one bit for those vaccines they gave me. To all my younger readers, I must warn you: the MMR vaccine burns! It only hurts a little while though, so try to be strong. :) Anywho, the doc says I'm looking good. I weighed in at 22 lbs. 5 oz. and was 32 1/3" tall. That puts me in the 90th percentile for height and the 25th for weight.

I also wanted to share what new words I've been learning to say. Mom and I counted 'em all up and I think I have 16 in my vocabulary (3 are animal sounds). In case you're curious, here's the list: mama, daddy, hi, bye, baby, pee-pee, poo-poo, gape=grape, ba=ball, bae=bear, no=nose, he-he=horsey, mo=more, and the animal sounds I know are moo for cow, ba ba for sheep, oo=woof for dog. I am learning more every day so there will soon be many more to add to the list!

Just for kicks, I decided to pull one over my parents this morning. While they were sitting down to breakfast, I quickly crawled up into one of our open cupboards in the kitchen island and hid there for a minute. It didn't take long for Dad to see me in there, but Mom couldn't believe it when Dad told her that's where I was. Here I am!

Home Sweet Home

Well, it has definitely been awhile since my last blog, but I do not have much to report. Really, all that I have been up to in the last few weeks since the move is going shopping at places like Lowes, Fred Meyer, Target, etc. to get stuff for the home. Last week my mom FINALLY took me to the park near our house and got some great pictures of me, but then the pictures got lost somehow during the upload to our computer. We are not sure what happened as even Dad could not find them.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that things with Kate and I are going really swell. We are getting along much better now and I am not so shy with the kisses anymore. Whenever we have to part ways, I am quick to give her a good smooch. She likes to cuddle and give me hugs, but I like to get down to business with the kisses. Typical of men and women, am I right?

Anywho, the new place is great and we are hoping to get things all put in place here real soon so we can have a little housewarming party. Dad and I are worried that Mom is addicted to painting and both hope she will quit real soon. She says she only has a little more she wants to do. We will see about that...

Dad starts fall classes next week and though he will be busy with school and work, it looks like he will be working here in Portland for at least the next month or so. This is good, because we like having him around. In case you were not in the loop, Dad just got back from the Netherlands this past weekend (he was there just a week for work) and so yes, we are glad he made it safely home to us.

Sorry for the lack of pictures of beautiful Moi. However, I am sure you will all get over it soon enough.

Take care and talk to you soon,
