8 months old- and so much has changed!

I have learned to crawl- FORWARD! As you may know I have been able to scoot backwards for over a month now- however on Thursday May 14th I took my first "steps" going forward just a few days before I turned 8 months old. I was pretty shaky at first but now I have it down. Mom and Dad have had a great time racing around chasing after me. There has been some talk about something called babyproofing that needs to be done but so far I have the run of the house! In fact now that I am mobile it is also pretty impossible to get me to sit still to take my monthly photos- I am more interested in eating the sign.




Check out my videos of my first moments crawling and a few days later when I was starting to master my skills!

It just goes to show you what I will do if you give me a cookie!

I have also learned a few other tricks in the last week- I have learned how to clap my hands

I have also learned to drink out of a sippy cup! This is very exciting as I have refused to use a bottle so now I can drink things without Mommy being around.

I have also started to bable with new sounds. I have started to say BABABA and DADADA and WAWAWA- I am still working on Mamama- I am saving that for a very special moment.

So much has changed in just over a weeks time- I can't wait to see what I will be up to tomorrow! Love-

Happy Mom's Day~

Happy Mother's Day Mommy!


We had such a fun day. Daddy and I went shopping for Mommy and picked out a yummy ice cream maker for her. I am so excited for her to make us some homemade ice cream! After church we took some pictures outside with Mommy's pretty hot pink flowers that were just flowering. Then we all went to the Hershey Garden's and looked at the pretty flowers there. It was such a fun day!



A week or two before Mother's Day our neighbor Miss Christine came over and took some pictures of us for Mother's Day presents for Grami and Grandma and my Great-Grandmas. Here are some of my favorites but you can view them all at this website. Love you!

Wedding Fun!


I was invited to attend my first wedding when my "Aunt" Leah and "Uncle" Marl finally got married in State College PA on the Penn State Campus. I was a good girl through the whole ceremony and I as rewarded with Penn State Creamery ice cream after the service. I also got to dance the night away with Mommy and Daddy and all of their friends. It was so much fun- I hope I look as pretty as Aunt Leah on my wedding day!

Colorful Colorado

So a few weeks back I got the opportunity to visit beautiful Colorado again for my Auntie Kristie' Shower for baby Caroline. I can't wait to meet her in July!

We had a great time at the shower and Auntie Kristie looked so good! It was so much fun to meeting so many of Mommy and Grami's friends and seeing all of the fun new things that Caroline will get to play with!

My Great-Great Grandma Tillie as even able to attend the shower- she is 100 years old! Here is a picture of her with all of her Great-Grandkids and me!

I had so much fun playing in Colorado! Take a look at this video of me giggling with Grami Tami.

My Uncle Andy was home from his police academy, where he graduated as the "Top Cop" in his class. We are so proud of him!

Grami and Pop Pop have a wonderful park and simming pool at the house so I got to play at the park while I was there. I had the whole place to myself! It was great-

I attended a barbeque with all of Mommy's friends in Denver while we were there. Mommy's friend Megan is expecting a little one too in July. We can't wait to find out if it will be a boy or a girl. Congratualtions Megan and Adam!

The last night we were in CO, I got to have dinner with my Great-Grandma and Grandpa Green. I had such a great time. Grandma Lou read to me and I even fell asleep in Grandma Green's arms.

It was a wonderful trip and I can't wait to go back. Love you all!
