Tummy TIme

I spent a few minutes on my tummy this morning. I know its early, but I can't wait to start crawling, walking and climbing - it's hard work, daddy needs to back off and learn how to hold the camera steady.

I am 4 weeks old (that's one month)

I went to Dad's work and got fitted for a kayak. I can't wait to get on the water, but it might be a few months. I saw his office and got to meet all of his student workers - I can't wait to climb the wall. Everyone was so nice. Go Terps! (I'm actually a CSU fan, but dont tell anyone in MD).

I have also been busy meeting new friends and soiling diapers.

Here is a picture of Isla, my new friend who is only two weeks old. Erin gave birth to Isla on October 31st (Halloween). I'm a bit tired and cranky, but she looks great...

I have had a busy week. Mom's friend Donna from the neighborhood (we're talking old school) came to visit and she was amazing. She flipped me on my tummy and rubbed my back - its a great technique that I hope Mom and Dad use because it helped me relax and pass some gas... AHHH!

As you might remember, Grandpa Polkow, aka Opa, made a surprise visit the day after I was born. He drove all day with my Uncle Alex to visit me, but he was so sick with a cold that we couldn't hang out much. But, he actually had to come back to Maryland for work and was able to spend the night at my house - I WAS SO HAPPY to see him again. Here is a pic of him holding me. I get to see him again in a few weeks...

To top a great week off, my great Aunt Sally stopped by for a surprise visit. She lives in Rhode Island. Although she has become a Patriots fan, I was still very happy to see her. Go Bears! I am excited to go snowboarding with the Thompson's this winter.

It's Saturday night and I am tired. I am going to bed so I can rest up for the next couple of weeks. Next Friday, we are driving to Chicago and I am going to meet all of the Doyles/Clarks and Polkows. My uncle Pat is getting married so I am gearing up for some explosive dance moves at the reception. Ain't nobody seen my moves yet.

My mom's friends Jocelyn and Andrea came over to meet me last week. I had a good time snoozing on them. They smell real good. Andrea is going to have a baby in March and I'm excited to have another little buddy!

Election Day (a little late)

Aunt Colleen and Aunt Bridget spent the weekend with me and we had a blast. We took walks, took LOTS of pictures, went out to lunch and dinner and listened to DAD have several conversations with the people from Comcast - I wonder if we will have cable by the time I am old enough to watch Curious George.  Colleen and Bridget showed Mom and Dad a few tricks to help me settle down - Thanks. Also, Colleen just coined my new nickname, "Crab Cake." I am not sure how I feel about it yet.

I am so lucky to have such a great family.
