Director of Dishwashing

The automatic dishwasher is quite the contraption. I usually supervise the cleaning of dishes from my sling while my mom hand washes. The hand holds and climbing opportunity makes this kind of chore very fun for me!

Great Grandma Pearl Halmrast

Nobody noticed but she secretly whispered the recipe to her old fashioned lefse to me. I hold the key to happiness now.

Great Grandpa Lloyd Halmrast

We had a good time. He made sure I know that I should floss daily and to always remember to check the oil in my car. Dude, where's my car? I didn't know I had a car!

Bed Head

How do y'all like my Alfalfa do? Mom's impressed with how much hair I'm growing these days.

Hanging with Mom

Making lunch and out for an afternoon walk.

Prune Face

I've got an unmentionable condition for which my mom's been feeding me prunes. They're pretty tasty, I guess.

Tug of War

Muffin and me playing tug of war with one of my socks. I laughed and laughed.

Christmas Tree Supervisor

Hey all! I'm busy right now making sure Grandma Karen and Auntie Deanna are getting the tree properly positioned and set up.

My friend Kira

This is my friend Kira and her mommy, Nancy. We took a stroller ride, ate Vietnamese soup, and read some books. Good times.


I started clapping the day after we visited with Kira and Nancy. Now I just love to play Pat-a-cake, especially with my Great Aunt Jeanette because she turns me upside down when we "throw it in the oven". I love being upside down.

Rite of Passage

Having a bath in the kitchen sink.

Grinning from Ear to Ear

Mommy and I are having so much fun in Washington. Here's a picture of me with my Grandma Karen. She made a killer cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving that tasted really good mixed with my sweet potatoes!

Puppy Love

This is Muffin. She's my new friend but she mostly has to stay outside when I'm around because she tries to herd me. I'm uncooperative. There will be a video post on that later in the week.

My New Hat

Like it? Mom had it made especially for me at Jens and Jewels on Etsy.com. It's soft and warm and best of all...not pink!!! My dad appreciates that part.

it's still those lazy, hazy, crazy days of...November?

Daddy told Mommy that she was slacking off on my picture blog so we took these today while I was playing in the grass at Boyd Hill. Crispy brown leaves are my new favorite taste sensation.

8 Months Old Today!

Hi! My name is Byrdie and I like pulling myself up, climbing on things, being turned upside down by Daddy, and Mama's milk, but I especially like plastic grocery bags, electrical cords and most kinds of paper.

All Played Out

Balls rolled: Check.
Rattles rattled: Check.
Lil Aamish shook and squeezed: Check
Ok, my chores are done, I can rest now.

Daddy gave me a real bath the other day. I really like having warm water poured over my back.

Company from Colorado

My friend Riley, who was born April 3rd, and her mommy, Sarah, came to visit last weekend. We went strolling at the nature preserve and sunning at the beach!

Howdy Pardner!

Lowered Expectations

Mom and Dad finally had to move me to the lower part of my pack and play a few weeks ago. It seems they didn't like how I was pulling my awesome self up onto my toes and attempting to roll right out of my bassinett.

Boyd Hill Nature Preserve

Mom and I go to the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve in St. Pete for a stroll at least 3 days a week. I feel like such a big girl when I get to stand up on the bench and look around. Also, we got to see our first alligator(a baby one)...can you spot her?

Licked Clean

Any time I need a good spot cleaning, Halo is there in a pinch!
