Baby Parker

What a special treat.... I got to meet Baby Parker Frost!!!!! Can you even stand how adorable he is?!?!?!?!?
Dada is a natural!

Bet you think that is a stuffed animal....NOPE, I was cuddling with a real puppy. Dada was helping to make sure I was being gentle.
Notice I am pointing at Baby Parker, wondering why Mama is holding him and not me!

What a weekend!

Well, well, well.... things have taken an interesting turn at the Witt house. Mama bragged and bragged about how well I was doing in my big boy bed. On Saturday Uncle Bill & Lauren babysat me so Mama and Dada could go to Auntie Kara's wedding. I think they had a really good time! When they got home Mama came in to tuck me in, as they do EVERY night, and I woke up screaming. Obviously I was much more anxious about my bed then I made people believe. Mama and Dada took turns rocking me, singing to me, and anything else they could think of. At 4:00 in the morning Mama put me in the car and started driving. After 2 deer ran in front of the car she got afraid and came home. By 5:00 in the morning she was ready to try again, so back in the car we went. I finally fell asleep but when we got home and it was time to go to bed I TOTALLY freaked again. Auntie Stacey kidnapped me for a few hours so Mama and Dada could take a quick nap. After 17 hours of this nonsense, Mama paged the doctor on call. She gave Mama the OK to give me some Benedry to help me sleep. Finally, at 8:00 the next night, I feel asleep. Of course you can imagine that my parents were pretty tired after dealing with this for almost 19 hours. Here is a pic of Mama and Dada at the wedding..... look how oblivious they are to what lies ahead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mama had made plans with Auntie Stacey & Grandma to go to Kiddieland on Monday. Grandma grew up right down the street and used to go as a child. Mama and Auntie Stac went there a lot too! Mama was not sure if she was up to going take me because we were both pretty tired, but she decided that because Kiddieland was closing at the end of season, this was an opportunity too good to pass! Dada told Mama to GO FOR IT. So off we went:-) Personally I think Mama was so nervous about nap time that she felt like going to Kiddieland was an excuse to skip nap. I did sleep about a half hour in the car each way.

Thanks Grandma for a special treat!

Auntie Stacey is a good sport and took me on the spinny ride... "Hi Mama"


Vroom Vroom

Because Kiddieland is VERY old, many of the rides don't have safety belts. Colin was doing a great job of holding onto me!

See, he is still holding me!!!

One of my favorite parts of the day was the choo choo ride around the park!

Mama was nervous while I was on this one, but I was so busy ringing the bell and driving I didn't even think twice about trying to climb out!

Monday night: After a long day at Kiddieland it was time to try another night of sleeping. Mama started early b/c she knew I was tired. After an hour and a half of trying to get me to sleep she called her mama for help. Grandma came and tried for an hour and a half. By 10:00 I had worn them both out! They called Uncle Bill to come over and help for one final desperate attempt. I was running around with my Mickey ears on thinking I had won the battle, little did I know they were plotting against me! They moved EVERY last piece of furniture out of my room. It is completely empty except for my toddler bed. They kissed me and shut the door. As you can probably guess, I WENT NUTS! It wasn't easy for Mama but she believes in tough love! I did finally fall asleep, but woke up twice in the middle of the night.
Tuesday: Mama noticed that my week old boo boo was not looking so good this morning. Mama and Dada took me to see the Doc. She said they needed to open it up and clean it out b/c it was starting a nasty infection. Once again I SCREAMED like crazy. Dada held me tight and it was over quickly. I have to take medicine and keep it clean so hopefully it will heal quickly. Boy, I am exhausted! And GUESS WHAT..... I am napping in my big boy bed today!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!!! Hopefully this is a turning point. Keep your fingers crossed!

Big Boy Bed

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH... last night I climbed out of my crib, actually I threw myself over the top. There was a lot of work that had to happened to make my room a safe place again. Mama and Dada let me watch TV in bed with them until I FINALLY feel asleep at 11:15. They moved me to my crib and I slept until 7:15 this morning. As soon as I woke up I immediately started to climb out. Mama and Dada worked all morning to get my big boy room & bed ready and safe. Nap time did not go so well. I screamed for over an hour. Finally I feel asleep on the floor by my door. Of course I would have appreciated if I wasn't locked in my room, but Mama says it is for my own good. Tonight I screamed so hard I almost got sick, but finally feel asleep after 30 minutes. To make it better, I even slept in my bed. Mama and Dada are hopeful that I will learn to love my new big boy bed!!!!!! Nighty night.

Singing my ABC's

I have almost perfected my ABC's.... Enjoy:-)

Making Memories......


Dada took an entire week off work so we could go on a little vacation. We were supposed to go to Lake Geneva on Tuesday and stay 2 nights. Mama and Dada were so excited on Monday they made the decision to take me for an extra night. After my SHORT nap, we hurried out of the house so we could start our vacation a day early. Mama told me that we were "making memories." Little did she know what kind of memories... you may be wondering why there are only a few pics from our "vacation."..........................

BECAUSE I refused to sleep in the hotel!!!!!! I climbed right out of the pack-n-play. Mama and Dada drove me around Lake Gevena, tried to lay down with me, sang to me, let me watch TV..... EVERYTHING they could think of. After hours of this, and me crying "home" they gave up and took me home. I am sure this is a memory they won't soon forget! Sorry:-(

Because our vacation plans changed, we tried to do other fun family stuff while Dada was home. I went on my first train ride and loved it!!!!! I kept yelling for Thomas. I can't wait to go see him in August and go for another train ride!
Look at the tracks Dada

On Thursday the sun was shinning and we decided it was a great day for the beach and spray park. Dada helped me build sand castles with tunnels for water.

Just filled up the bucket with water for my tunnel.....
Mama's turn to help me get water....
What's up ladies???????????

Then it was off to the spray park. I was LOVING the water!!!!!

I was so tired after a great morning at the beach that I slept 3 hours. Mama and Dada decided that because I was so well rested they would take me to a concert in the park. It was beautiful weather and I had a great time running around. Here is a picture of Dada and I dancing.
Catch me!!!!!

Dada you are too slow, try and catch me Sammy
Ryan, you want to try and keep up?????

Fun summer weekend!

What a weekend!!!!!! We kept very busy and are completely exhausted, but had a great time!
On Saturday we went to Toys R Us for a Thomas playdate. They had hats for the kiddos to decorate, coloring sheets, and other Thomas stuff.
Here I am with my Thomas hat.
Why can't I take everything off the shelf????
Can I pick out a Thomas car?

How about this one?
Check out my pimped out hat:-)

Saturday night we went to a firework festival. In order to get there you had to park and take a bus. It was a short ride, but I was excited to get to go on a bus for the first time!
Watching the boats with Rocky
As usual, Sammy was taking good care of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was showing the police man my moves.... watch out!
Just when I thought the fun was over, Auntie Kelly & Uncle Ryan invited us up on the boat. So, Sunday morning we got up and heading to WI. I was so excited that TT was there too!

I see the boat!

Smile Jurczyk Family!
Hanging with Mama on the boat
TT and Uncle Adam went tubing first. TT was not thrilled:-(

Next it was my turn, and to Mama's surprise.... I LOVED IT!!!!!
Thanks Aunt Kelly and Uncle Ryan, we had a great time! Now I just have to wait to meet your baby.... only a few more weeks.... although after todays boat ride it may be sooner:-) XOXO

Open Gym with TT

On Friday morning Mama and I met Auntie Nessa and Trinity at the gymnastic center in Cary. It was a rainy morning so there were LOTS of kids there. Mama said I may get to come back and take a few classes with TT:-)
They had a huge blow up slide and I LOVED every second of it!
TT loved the slide too!
We got out lots of energy jumping on the trampoline
Finally, it was back to my house for hot dogs and mac & cheese before nap time.
