I've had a busy first month. There's a lot to do out here in the world, and when you sleep 18 hours a day, you don't have a lot of time to do it!
We've been on some fun outings. I've been to the park, to the beach (or near it at least), to see the Fourth of July fireworks (Sawyer & Lee Anna tell me they were nice--I wouldn't know because I slept through the whole thing), to church, to the mall, and to this place Mom loves called Walmart. She says we need to enjoy it now because pretty soon we'll be living in the land of no Walmart again.
I love riding in my stroller, and my brother and sister love to help push. If the number of kisses they give me is any indication of how they feel, then I am one loved little girl. Sometimes my brother even tells my mom, "Mom, I love that baby sooooo much."
Here I am on my one-month birthday with my friend Mr. Monkey. Mom says she's going to take a picture of me every month with Mr. Monkey so we can see how much I'm growing. Aren't we cute? I met Mr. Monkey on my very first day of life. We go way back.
And, last but not least, I would like to say Happy Anniversary to my mom and dad today. Mom says she and dad have been married nine years, whatever a year is. I'm sure glad they found each other; otherwise you wouldn't be here looking at all these pictures of me!

First, a few weeks ago, they held a Princess Party, at which anyone who came to dinner dressed as a princess would receive a free meal. Luckily, Lee Anna had just been given this beautiful Cinderella dress as a birthday present (complete with shoes and crown), so she was all set. Since we were busy that night, Aunt Claire and Zach volunteered to take the kids to the party. As you can see, Aunt Claire got in on the dress-up fun, too.
Then, today they had yet another irresistible offer of free chicken. This time the free meals went to anyone dressed as a cow. Sawyer already had this adorable raincoat--a gift from Mimi when we arrived back in the land where it rains more than five days a year. We had to get a little more creative with Lee Anna's outfit, but I think it turned out cute. Didn't Aunt Claire do a great job with the ears?Here they are mooing their little hearts out. No, the grown-ups didn't join in on the fun this time, although we did join in on the chicken eating.
Now if only we could convince them to take their chicken operation overseas...

Today the kids' cousins Autumn and Alyssa (and their parents!) came over to play one more time before they head back to Texas. Sawyer and Lee Anna are really going to miss having those two to play with.
Here are the cousins on the Fourth...
