Porter's Beach Adventure

This afternoon we went to the beach for Porter to check out the sand and the ocean water.

Although the ocean is quite chilly right now, it was still fun to walk the shore with our little Bubbicans!

Porter just loves his daddy! I am a little sad to say this, but Porter's first word was officially, "dada." He started saying it on Thanksgiving Day and has repeated it constantly ever since.

However, Porter has said one "momma" this week, so life is still pretty good!

Myrtle Beach Playground

This morning was gorgeous! It was warm and sunny, and we thought this would be a perfect time to take Porter to the playground.

Check out the video below of Porter practicing his walking skills:

Here's our trapped little munkin trying to get free!

Porter also got to swing!

Check out the video below of Porter enjoying his Daddy pushing him on the swing:

He really enjoyed the playground, and it was good for him to burn off a little bit of his stored energy!

Later, after we were back at the hotel, Porter took a nap.  Here's a video of him after he wakes up:

Thanksgiving 2010

Brian and I are a bit on the non-traditional side of the spectrum. While most families were preparing for a lovely feast on Thanksgiving Day, we loaded our little Civic up and headed for Myrtle Beach. Instead of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, our special dinner consisted of pizza and Yuengling while sitting on our hotel's balcony watching the ocean waves crash into the shore. The food may have been lacking, but we were thankful to get away from the daily grind and be together with our Bubby.

Porter the Puff Eater

Now that Porty is crawling, he can eat puffs (which are like Cheerios)! Although he gets way more on the floor than in his mouth, it's so exciting to watch him master a new skill!

Step 1: Carefully pick the puff you would like to eat.

Step 2: Insert into mouth.

Step 3: Be proud of your accomplishment!

Here's a slide show of the whole event:

Porter loves to move! Today he wiggled himself under the living room accent table and got stuck! It was pretty cute!
