New videos

I love my bouncy chair just like Mommy loved her bouncy chair when she was a kid. I used to need pillows stuffed around me so I wouldn't fall over but now I can sit up and use my legs to bounce all by myself.

While my bathtub is filling up I like to play peek-a-boo with Mommy. I laugh and laugh and really brighten everyone's day.

Mmmm...First Solid Food

Since my parents grew up in Fremont there was only one choice for my first solid food. I'm a Gerber Baby!

I helped pull the spoon to my mouth from the start.
Getting the spoon out of my grip to get more food was the challenging part.

I can even wipe my own mouth with my bib.Daddy gets in on the feeding action

No need for airplane sounds with me.

Just load up that spoon and keep it coming.I can even do tricks and show off while eating

Summer in Michigan

Daddy drove the 20 hours from Houston to Michigan with Scout and the cats and Mommy braved my first airplane ride by herself. They are still debating who got the better deal.
35,000 far so good. A few moments of discontent, a dirty diaper but for the most part I just slept.

Sleeping at Grandma and Grandpa Smith's in the nursery they set up just for me.

My cousin Sophia bought me this blue dog so I had a toy to play with when I arrived.

My 1st boat ride courtesy of Dave and Mabel on Brooks Lake. I loved it!

Playing in my new activity chair

Same chair, same pose but 1 month later. Is it me or is my head getting bigger?

My smile and giggles are a regular occurance now

My favorite toy of the summer was this beaver from Hapa Wearing glasses is at risk with me around now that I learned how to grab and hold tight.

No better place to take a quick snooze after lunch

Awwww :)

I learned to hold my own bottle

Posing with my buddy Scout on my 4 month birthday

Tummy time. I'm not a big fan and am trying to master the art of rolling over.

Ah that is better. Plus I can grab my feet now and put my toes in my mouth.

Enjoying a puppet show at the Grand Rapids Childrens Museum with Aunt Melissa and my cousins Nora and Dawson.

I love my mommy!

I got to meet Great Grandpa Smith this summer
