It's been a while...

Hi Friends,

I am sorry I have been MIA for a few weeks, but I have been very busy. I am still in Chicago visiting family and new friends. This trip has been memorable; I flew on a plane again, Mom and I got the stomach flu (BOO! -not fun), I was baptized with my cousin Tierney, I enjoyed my first Christmas, I made my first visit to Wrigley Field, and I met a new friend, Madelyn. Overall my trip has been great, but I have learned a few things: the Bears need new defensive backs, Portillo's Italian Beef smells really good and I can't wait to taste it, ridiculously cold weather causes potholes on the highways in Chicago, throwing up is not fun, and my cousins are a lot of fun.

Before I flew to Chicago, I had my two month check up. All is good and I am healthy. I weighed 13.12 lbs, 25 inches long and have a very large head - not too large, though. I survived one shot in each of my thighs - ouch!

Here are some pics of my adventures. I am excited to get back to Maryland so I can meet my new babysitter and enjoy some warmer weather. I can't wait to eat some crab cakes and take walks to Fort McHenry. 

Where the heck did Mom and Dad put the rest of my Santa

Too Much EggNog!! 

I'm just hanging out with Uncle Dave on Christmas.

A very special baptism with my cousin Tierney - she was born the day after me. Here is a picture of me with my Godmother - Aunt Debbie and my Godfather- Uncle Dave.

Madelyn King and Me - having fun with our moms!    

My first trip to Wrigley. I wish my dad was cool enough to buy us tickets to the Winter Classic, but he blew it. I can't wait for my first Cubs game!

My first cold :(

I think all the excitement from my first trip to Chicago finally caught up with my mom and me. We are both sick and boy this is not fun. I don't like the way I feel with all this gunk in my throat and nose. My mom keeps sticking this thing up my nose to try to suck it out but all it does is annoy me. Then she sprays some stuff up there and it makes me cry even harder! I hope this goes away soon. I'm heading back to Chi-town next week and on my second airplane ride. Fingers crossed! 

On another note, I am two months old today. I better have my mom take a picture since she doesn't have one from the day I turned 1 month old. Stay tuned!

My first trip to Chicago

Unfortunately my busy travel schedule didn't leave me much time to blog. I barely got enough sleep while I was in Chicago! But, I had a great time meeting all my relatives. They all took turns holding me and I was on my best behavior and didn't do any major damage to any of their clothes. I can't help it if a little spit up comes up! 

A lot has happened in the past couple of weeks. I took my first road trip to Chicago with mom and dad and saw snow for the first time. I also did my first "Turkey Trot" but I was so tired I slept through the whole thing. Here is a pic at the finish...I am bundled up so you can't see me but I am in there! 

Then I went to Grandma and Grandpa Doyle's house and met all my cousins. There are so many of them I am having a hard time remembering who's who.

I went to my first big event - Uncle Pat and Aunt Amy's wedding. I didn't get to show off my dance moves because Opa and Gege took me home before I could bust them out. Oh well...next time. 

I also got to meet my cousins on the Polkow side and also my Godfather and Uncle Dave and my Aunt Katie. We had fun!

To top off a great week, I took my first airplane ride!
