So today Hannah received some presents from her Uncle Jeff, Aunt Ang, and cousin Jack who have all become part time "Cheeseheads"! What is a cheesehead you ask? Well I've found the perfect example pictured below! We generally refer to a cheesehead as someone who lives in Wisconsin and/or is a Green Bay Packer fan. It's a huge thing! If you'd like to look into the obsession check out Anyways....

After hearing about this Hannah too wanted to know what it was like to be a cheesehead.... Only she sort of missed her head!?!?!

Party Time!

Here's a group photo of all the babies undercover!

Thanks everyone for helping Hannah celebrate the Big 1!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here I am only 3 days old last Thanksgiving with my Uncle Joe. I don't really remember anything but my Mom says we had a good time. I'm just not sure how they did all the cooking without my help!

Here's Dad getting ready to carve the turkey. (Don't worry he switched to a carving knife after the picture!)

Before the turkey though we had a lot of stuff to do. Here's me helping mom put the buns on the pan.

I helped make the sweet potatoes too!

This is what I call "Green apple bean caserole" move over Rachael Ray here comes Hannah D!

Then it all cooked for a while and here it is folks! Thanksgiving dinner!

Then it was time for desert. Dad had pecan pie, Mom had pumpkin pie, Grandma had a weight watchers special recipe (She's lost 15lbs so far!), and I had whip cream!

I Love Thanksgiving!

New talents

Well I've decided since I'm a year now I need to start learning some new skills. My mom taught me to blow my nose. I'm not sure why I do it but I think it's lots of fun and everyone cheers for me when I do why not? I can give high fives too check it out next time you see me!

The other thing I thought I should take responsibility for is calling my own friends. I try to tell my mom when I want to go visit them but there's so many times I just don't feel understood! So don't be surprised if you get a call from my mom's phone and hear "Ruff Ruff Ruff" on the other line because I love dogs and I can bark like them now! It's my favorite saying!

A recap of my life in pictures Birth -2mo

Let the countdown begin!

That's right folks 5 more days until the big day! I will be in the single digits you know... well the single digit! I am going to be a whole year old! Boy have I learned a lot in one year. No wonder my mom and dad are so smart they've had a lot of birthday's compared to me! By the way in case you haven't heard we are going to celebrate Saturday November 25 at my Mom and Dad's house. Be there at 1:00! There's going to be new friends, old friends, silly friends, and cake! If your reading this your invited so worry about being left out ok? ;)

My mom took me to Target to scope out some possible presents. I found a pony that I loved! For only $250.00 you too can have a fake pony that moves and makes noise when you pet it. My Mom knew what I was babbling and squealing about when I saw that pony. She told me no how! She said I'd like it for 5 minutes and then it would just gather dust. I'm not sure what she's thinking... I would definitely play with it for at least 6 minutes!

First snow of the season

Well it's official...the snow has started. The mountains have been dusted with powder sugar for a while now, but today the snow poured down in town! It quickly turned to rain as it got later but Hannah loved the cold white stuff landing on her face!

Fun times

Mom and Dad took me to McDonald's for the first time today to play in their playland since the weather is getting colder. The rules said 3 and over, but since I'm almost 1 year we thought it would be ok since there were no other kids there! I had a blast... I love crawling through tubes!

This is a picture of me in my favorite position in my chair, standing up! I love to climb on anything and everything!

This is a crazy picture of my crazy mom and my crazy dog! I still can't figure out who's on top of who???

Here's a picture of me and my Dad at McDonald's, I was a little afraid of falling through the bubbles when we got too high, maybe that's why your supposed to be 3 years old to play there.

11months 12days 12hrs 14min ?sec

"That is how long it took me to walk! I was checking out David's blog yesterday and it made me think of all that babies out there that are walking already. So this morning I took a 2 1/2 hour nap woke up and thought ' need to walk!' My mom put me down on the ground in a standing position as usual after lunch but here's where the story gets exciting! Usually I squat down and crawl away, but not today! I kept my balance, put one foot in front of the other, and took 5 steps forward! Mommy and Grandma stood there in shock. Then they started cheering and clapping which scared me so I started crying. I was pretty excited though as you can tell from the picture above. My mom took that picture right after I walked. She kept trying to encourage me to walk again so she could show daddy but I don't feel ready to walk for the cameras quite yet. Besides I think I'll wait and show him in person!"
Just as a quick note...Hannah did show her dad how she could walk when he got home from work! She is so big!
