Our Trip to Baltimore and other antics

Dearest Addison,

This past Friday marked your 16th month with us. We've been watching you grow more and more each day, and every day, you bring a new surprise. You've learned to point at what you want. When asked a yes or no question, you nod in agreement or shake your head no. You've developed an affinity for Kix cereal, it's a shame because that Costco sized box of Cheerio's your mommy got you isn't even halfway done... Look's like Daddy has a bit of "cleaning up" to do, after all, your mommy doesn't call me a human garbage disposal for nothing. =) What scare's me the most is that your becoming just like your Mommy... A shoe and purse fanatic, AND YOUR ONLY 16 MONTHS OLD!!! I don't know if my wallet can handle two shopaholics... =)

We had a bit of a vacation this past month. We tagged along with your mommy as she attended her annual Society of Toxicologist's meeting. I always joke with her and call it a Brainiac Convention because of all the smarty smarts running around... Who knows, maybe you too will get a PhD. Anyhow, we drove down to Baltimore, MD for a weeklong vacation. You and I spent much our time in the hotel's club lounge drinking all the free soda and eating all the appetizers while your mommy was getting her learn on. We did venture out a few times. We visited the Baltimore Aquarium and got to see a really neat dolphin show. The sharks did freak you out a bit though, but I don't blame you. Sharks freak me out too! We even took you to the Port Discovery Children's Museum. I think we all had a good time there. All in all, our trip to Baltimore was a blast, and I'm glad that your mommy asked us to come along instead of staying at home. Don't get me wrong sweetie, but I don't think I can handle you by myself for any longer than 2 days. =) Maybe next year mommy will let us go with her to Salt Lake City... Now that would be fun.

Here are some pictures of our trip and a few other things.

Love Always,

Here you are livin on the edge.  For some reason, heights don't freak you so much.

Our first day in Baltimore we took you to the aquarium.

I believe this is a relative of Hawaii's state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a.  Say that 10 times fast.


You were in a bit of a blah kind of mood that day...

This was your reaction at the dolphin show...

Even when it jumped out of the water.

Here we are chillin out at the club lounge.  You and your purse... =)

"Just tap the bottle...


...twist the cap!"

Drink up!

The day we took you to the children's museum, you still had some residual cranky's about you but you eventually lightened up.  =)

You and Mommy made a clay pot...

We even visited the mini cafe exhibit... I think you were hungry.

No sweetie, that's plastic food.

Yes... even the pancakes are plastic.

Ball Pit!

Here are you and Mommy just before we went to dinner.

Werd son!

That' s the USS Constitution in the back.  Go Navy!

Here are some pictures I took of you while we were goofing around one night.  You begged me to give you your hair clip container and gave me a hair clip to put in your hair... then you gave me another and another and another... hilarity ensued.

Pay no attention to the cheetos crumb on my eyebrow.

mmmmmm... cheetos

"Did you say toes?"  "By the way daddy..."
