Today is the wedding day of Stephanie and Jeff--my first wedding. Daddy was an usher so he was dressed in his black tuxedo with blue tie and fun cuff links that I wanted to play with. The reception was a lot of fun and when I got a bit tired, Mommy and Obachan took me downstairs where it was a little bit quieter. I really enjoyed dancing with my Daddy and my Grandpap!

I rested a lot during the day so that I could be ready to attend my first rehearsal dinner at Trattoria Lisina. Daddy and Auntie JoAnn actually went to St. Catherine of Sienna Church for the actual wedding rehearsal. At the restaurant, we all sat outside overlooking the hill country of Texas. Mommy and Daddy said it reminded them of the Tuscany region of Italy. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed being with my Obachan and Grandpap. Stephanie looked so beautiful and Jeff so handsome. Since they have been such very good friends of my Auntie JoAnn for many years, she had a lot of stories to tell about them.

We started on a walk and met an older friend of Ms. Beth, a very sweet lady, who is nanny to two year old Maya and 4 year old Jai. We decided to walk together. Maya, especially, liked me and sympathized with me because I didn't have a "Ba" (pacifier) at the time. Maya had hers and loves it. I enjoyed seeing the children and their dog, Jolie.
Mommy, Daddy and I are headed to Austin, Texas this evening. We will be staying at Auntie JoAnn's house, meeting with Obachan and Grandpap, and attending the wedding ceremony of Stephanie and Jeff. I was so excited to be at the airport because I got to see many different people. I felt very safe since Daddy carried me in the Baby Bjorn. I slept most of the way down to Austin. Mommy and Daddy were so thankful that it was a direct flight.

Ms. Beth and I walked to the library to see the fish in the in-wall aquarium, but I really preferred to watch the kids! We sat in the front yard on blankets (or I napped in the stroller while Ms. Beth read). It was a beautiful sunny day. We took several shorter walks to avoid too much exposure. I rode in the stroller front facing for the first time! Mommy got pictures.

Over the weekend, I forgot to mention that I cut my first bottom tooth. Today Ms. Beth and I sang songs (or she did and I smiled). We enjoyed the swing at the park located at the corner of Stone School and Eisenhower and took a walk in the Baby Bjorn through a very pretty neighborhood.

Memorial Day weekend 2008. We spent the time with Grandma Debby and Grandpa Steve. I took a long nap in the stroller under the apple tree while Mommy, Daddy, and Grandma worked in the vegetable garden. Saturday was my first taste of rice cereal--hated it at first and cried for my bottle. After the bottle, Daddy was able to feed me 5 spoonfuls. Grandma bought me some beautiful outfits, especially the orange sweater made in France. We walked out of the "Once Upon a Child" store with a bag full of clothes.

This afternoon at Grandma Debby's and Grandpa Steve's house, I met Ayla for the first time. Ayla was born about two weeks after me and her Daddy and my Mommy work for the same company, Gene Express. Our parents sat outside on the deck and talked while we hugged each other. I did lick Ayla, though, on the forehead just to see how she tasted.

I've reacted better to the shots than at my 4 month immunization visit. Mainly because Mommy gave me baby Tylenol to help reduce my fever and relieve my aches. Also, I had less swelling in both my legs. I slept most of the day and later in the afternoon we took a long walk outside. I felt much better after the trees whispered soothing comfort in my ears.

What a sad, sleepy day. Mommy and Daddy took me to the doctor's office again this morning and this time I received my immunizations (2 in each leg and one oral vaccine that tasted yucky!). Dr. Popper was nice and drew breakfast, lunch and dinner plate plans on the paper sheet so that Miss Beth and Mommy can start giving me solid food.

A pretty happy day with lots of walks outside and lots of talking. My Mommy and Daddy took me to the doctor's office in the morning, however, when we signed-in at the counter the receptionist said that our appointment was scheduled for tomorrow. I didn't have to get shots after all.

Electricians were here putting lights on the sides of the garage. We spent a lot of time walking and napping in the stroller under the shade . It was a beautiful warm day with deep blue skies. I missed Grandpa Peters because all I wanted to do was jump a lot. Later, I sat on Miss Beth's lap and we talked "baby talk" for a full 20 minutes. Miss Beth said, "Good attention span, Kaylie!"

Today we walked in the Baby Bjourn and stopped in Kroger's just as it began to rain. Luckily I seemed happy looking at the colorful products in the aisles and smiling at people passing by. We attempted to wait out the rain but finally my "lunch" time arrived and so did the thunder! Happily Daddy was able to pick us up, and after my bottle, I settled in for a nap.

Today is Grandpap's birthday. We all went on a picnic lunch to Lilly Park and explored the trail that surrounds Turtle Rock Pond. We missed Auntie JoAnna so we text messaged her and sent her a picture of us eating hoggies at the picnic table. It was such a beautiful cool spring day!
