David's cousin Catherine holding Augie.  He's crying but I really like the picture.

This U Turn Only sign really intrigued me.  Usually you just see No U Turn Allowed signs, so I found it quite interesting that they would post that you could only do a U turn.  There is road just beyond the sign to drive on to make your U Turn, I just didn't get it in my photo.

Farming in January.  Not something you see every day!  At least, not in MN!!

Standing next to a banana tree.  Augie LOVES bananas!  He will say 'nana' and reach for the banana when he sees it.

Augie got an Anywhere Chair from Pottery Barn Kids.  Well, the cover is from Pottery Barn Kids, the inserts are from someone on ebay who sells the exact same inserts as PBK but for a lot less.

The shuttle and new chair pics are lovely.  It just occurred to me when I looked at them that Augie is sucking his thumb in both of them.  Maybe that's why they spoke to me?  LOL  Regardless, they're adorable!

Augie's Day:

Getting into the box of checks.

Sit with Dad while he makes a phone call.

Still sitting with Dad!

Playing with the activity table & Baby Grand piano.

Oh no!  Locked out of the office!

Oh well, I'll play with the bags instead.  (Which have now been moved to a safer place in our quest to baby proof as Augie shows us what we need to do.  :) )

 Playing with the sippy cup.

Augie loves to pull these two books off the 2nd shelf behind him - the yellow one is the MN election results from 1996, the green one in his hands is the 2007-2008 Legislative directory.  :)

The door with all our picture Christmas cards.  We got lots without pictures, too.  :)  Good thing since we sent out 150!  We'll leave these up until Thanksgiving, I love having the pictures to look at all year.

LOVE your door!  I think it's a lovely idea to keep it up year round!

Augie pulled out that paper bag which was on the bottom shelf behind the Route 66 box & started waving it around.  "Haha look what I got!"  lol

Something else Augie found in the office.  :)  (We REALLY need to baby proof the office!)

I decided to let Augie feed himself his cereal (since he was grabbing at it anyway).  At least he's using his spoon!  :)

All done!
