Me with Some Relatives
January 20, 2000
I like to sit in Daddy's lap and look around at interesting things like walls and the back of the sofa. You'd be amazed at how irritated I get when someone tries to distract me from staring at a doorway!
This is Daddy doing his magic gas remedy. Lots of times when I get my back patted in this position, I feel better almost immediately. Also, I have red hair. Did you notice?
Sometimes life just gets too stressful and I have to sack out on my father, who likes to protect his garments from my... expectorations... with a nice yellow cloth.

Here are Mumsy, Dadsy, and I with Ashley and Andy, who came to visit us while I was all busy with getting born. If I look like I'm keeling over it's because I am!
Mumsy and I don't appear to share a complexion, but in this picture (and many of these first-few-days pictures) I'm a tiny bit jaundiced so don't hold it against me!
This is my Aunt Terri who calls me her "Little Bug" possibly because there are a number of bugs on my hat and possibly because of those vestigial antennae that haven't fallen off yet. Or maybe because I am small and buglike.
My Grammy Judy wanted a picture that showed my red hair and HERE IT IS! Red, orange, strawberry blonde -- slice it how you like but it's still not what they expected!
Now I am spending time with Happy Fun Daddy. Daddy and I like to take trips around the living room practicing on focusing our eyes on exciting objects like the Birthday Tree, the Dog, the Mantelpiece, the Chair, and Mumsy.
