Eating, Swinging, Signing, and Little Bison

Did someone say I was a clean eater? What were they thinking? Yesterday, Mommy left my prunes on my tray, and I decided to help myself. I now really like eating my Cheerios with a tinch of milk to moisten them. I feel empowered feeding myself. This morning I enjoyed raspberry-ing with milk in my mouth. My, my, eating can be so much fun!

Mommy and Daddy did some yard work this weekend including mowing, planting flowers, and putting up my new swing. Weeeeeee!One of the coolest things that has happened recently is that I can sign to Mommy and Daddy when I want to eat something!!!! I have signed "eat" after my naps and before meals/snacks when they ask me if I'm hungry and want to eat. I put my hand/fingers up to my mouth and tap my lips to let them know I want to eat. I usually giggle, too, because I'm excited that we're understanding each other. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of me!

As you can see from the picture below, I'm studying already to maybe one day be a Bison like my uncles. Friends of ours from church went to their grandson's Bucknell graduation and bought me this hat while there. They knew my two uncles, Jim and Drew, went there. I hear it's farm country out there; so, I thought this book was quite appropriate to start reading. The hat fits great, and I don't mind wearing hats now.

Please have a nice Memorial Day and say a prayer for those who served our country and lost their lives protecting our freedom.

God bless you!

P.S. I LOOOOOVE walking!!!
