Stillwater’s Teddy Bear Park


A couple weeks ago Mom and I drove out to Stillwater to meet Auntie Heather and Cousins Ally and Charlie at the Teddy Bear Park. There were so many kids there and I had so much fun watching them all run around. Heather watched me for a few minutes while Mom ran around with my cousins. I had a lot of fun. See the drool all over Auntie Heather’s shoulder? Sorry!

I’m 6 Months Old!


Wow! I’m already a half-year old. I can’t believe it. To celebrate we went to visit my Pediatrician, Dr. Miller. He’s a really nice guy. He told me I weigh 16 lbs, 6 oz and am 26.5 inches long. Both are just above average, which is appropriate. When we got home I helped Mom and Dad make dinner. But they only let me hold the spoon. Oh well, I’ll learn to cook soon enough!

I Love My Uncle Ben

Skylar Loves Uncle Ben

I know, I know, you’re asking yourself, “Who is Uncle Ben?” You’re thinking of Uncle Chris in Wisconsin, and Uncle Adam in Colorado, and maybe even Great Uncle Tim here in Minneapolis. But Uncle Ben? Let me explain. I was in Mommy’s arms yesterday while she was starting to make dinner and she picked up the box of Uncle Ben’s rice to read the directions. (She rarely uses the boxed stuff, she wanted me to tell you). So she picked up this bright orange box and it made a loud rattley sound and I laughed. And laughed and laughed and laughed. So Dad tried it again when he got home. And I laughed, and laughed and laughed. Oh, that Uncle Ben, he sure is a funny guy!

My First (Second) Trip to the Minnesota State Fair

My friend Maddie and I went to the State Fair today with our Mom’s. I guess I was there last year but was the size of a jelly bean in my mom’s belly. This year was more fun.


Here I am in the Cattle Barn posing with a beautiful big cow. Maddie is a little bit older than me and she actually got to milk a cow. Well, a plastic cow, but that’s still pretty cool. We won’t tell you what happened on our way out of the barn, but we had to jump back really quick to avoid getting hit by something stinky!


We wandered around the rest of the fair and watched our Moms eat. Maddie went on a couple rides and I hung out with Mom in the Baby Bjorn. That fair is a big place and we all were pretty tired by the time we headed out. Can’t wait until next year when I can take my first bite of fair food!

This is How I Nap


Mom caught me napping on Dad last weekend. I was pooped! I borrowed this cute hoodie from cousin Kellen. It has a little monster on the front. Just like Daddy’s T-shirt. See the monster on his?

PS: I’m still loving my rice cereal and ate a whole bowl last night. I’m getting really big and can’t wait for some more real food!
