My Hairbrush

Since I don't have much hair yet, I was trying to decide what good a hairbrush was, so I thought and thought about the best way to utilize my hairbrush while my head is awaiting the beautiful locks that will someday adorn my little baby head.

And so I decided that since I have two teeth already, I should use my hairbrush to make the dentist happy by starting early on a cleaning routine.

As a bonus, I can use the handle for the tough jobs, you know really giving that plaque a one, two punch!

Me and my hairbrush have a big job to do, especially when all my other teeth start coming in. I'll make sure and update you on the hair growing progress as well, i'm not going to be peach fuzz boy all of my life you know.

The Duck Tub Incident

Here I was, just playing in my duck tub on mommy and daddy's bed, pretending I was sailing in my boat on Lake Victoria...just like my daddy and his yellow boat. Too bad his is always broken. Maybe I can take him in mine next time!

It was an exciting ride...full speed ahead...!

Yeah, I keep my cool even in the most dangerous waters. This is my "i've got it under control" look.

..But sometimes accidents happen and you just have to laugh at yourself!

This is how I call for help when me and my duck tub get in sticky situations. I call it, flailing the arms and legs. My mom is always sure to come to my rescue. She's a great swimmer, even in these treacherous waters.

I'm the big Eight...months that is

Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog. I just wanted to tell you all about my day at the Zoo and how fun it is to be 8 months old. And by the way, waving is the in thing these days. It can also be my way of asking for a high five, or to play patty cake. It's cool to be 8 mo.

First of all, we saw a big lion roaming around in his big cat cage. And let me tell you , when it's only a chain link fence between you and a wild beast like that, it's a little unnerving. My mom wouldn't even let me get within 5 feet of the big guy. Security in African Zoo's aren't very reassuring.

Here's the big guy pacing back and forth, looking a little bored. Didn't see any girl cats around the lair, so no one to impress I guess.

The 8 month pose. Sitting up and taking it all in!

The monkey's were my absolute favorite. My dad taught me that monkey's say, "ooh ooh ah ah" and it was so funny that I laughed and laughed. Some of them were even running free around the compound. If I had legs that were working, i'd probably "monkey around" right along with them.

Observing the chimpanzees. I saw two of them playing in the trees, and when they jumped on a branch that was too small for them they tumbled to the ground and climbed right back up the tree. Silly Monkey's.

Dashing smile, isn't it? Say cheese. (notice my two bottom pearly whites)

I didn't even notice it until I saw the picture that there was a really cool bird walking behind me. It's actually Uganda's country bird.

I had sooo much fun taking my parents to the zoo. It's good for them to remember how to be kids again.

Well, that's all for now. Peace out!
