Kauai 2016

Summer has officially begun in the Sieminski household! Last month we were in Kauai with my cousins for 10 glorious days. While vacationing with a toddler is exhausting as hell, we still had a fantastic time 🙂

1st Birthday Party

Dearest Nora,

You’ve brought me pure joy this year. You’re beautiful, smart, happy, curious, expressive and kind. You’re the most active kid I’ve ever met! I love that you keep me on my toes. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings for you. Below are pics and video from your birthday party. I love you so much my darling!

I’m 11 Months Old Today!

I can’t believe I’m 11 months old today! Mom tried to take my picture with the bear and age block on the rocking chair just as she’s done in past months, but I had other ideas. Check out the video below, haha!

I just spent a week on the east coast at my uncle Chuck’s house with all of my mom’s family for Thanksgiving. We had a blast. I got to hang out with all of my cousins and play the entire time! Mom posted a ton of pictures below for you to see.

I’m officially walking more than I crawl. My mom says I’m a force to be reckoned with. I have some serious ants in my pants and I love keeping her on her toes throughout the day. I’m super curious and adventurous — which means I’m often getting into things that mom says are “no-no’s”!

I babble and sing like it’s my job. I can say “dada”, “mama”, “mai-mai”, “E-I-E-I-O”, “Hi” and I can growl like a pirate “arrggh”.  I clap along to “If you’re happy and you know it” and I wave my arms like a crazy person for “Where is thumpkin?”

While I’ve made a lot of progress on the moving and communication fronts, I still have NO teeth! lol And I’m still a picky eater who wants everything pureed to a pulp. What can I say, I like what I like!

I met Santa Claus at the mall and helped mom and dad put up our Christmas Tree. It’s been an action-packed month! I wonder what excitement my 11th month will hold………

 

 

 

I’m Nine Months Old Today!

Can you believe I’m 9 months old? Time flies! I’m speed crawling and pulling myself up on everything. I love hanging with my dog Maisey, she’s my best friend. I started a music with friends class and I LOVE it. Mommy got my ears pierced for me, I think I look adorable. Sadly, I still don’t have any teeth – so purees continue to be my jam. I’m starting to branch out a bit and expand my palate. I love spinach and potatoes AND lentils with rice (pureed, of course). I experiment with cantaloupe, strawberries, cucumbers, hummus, avocado and watermelon — but I don’t always like the feel of bits of food on my tongue.  It gives me the shivers!

I’m 8 Months Old Today (+ outtakes)

Now that I’m 8 months old, I can crawl like a champ. I’ve even started pulling myself up on things.

I still don’t have any teeth, so purees are my jam. I hate anything that isn’t pureed – it’s driving my mom nuts!

So far in my life, I’ve done a lot of travelling, I’ve been on 10 flights! My mom will do a post recapping all of our adventures soon. Until then, enjoy the slideshow of outtakes below.
