Birthday cake review

We had a few different birthday parties in recent days, because honestly you can't contain a seven-year-old birthday in just a single day.

We had a traditional Batman cake at Grandmom Shane's, which was really cool because the part hidden under his face had no icing just for me.

And at Grandmom Doyle's, we had an impressive cupcake spread that had purple icing for some, chocolate icing for others and little sugar stars for everyone.

Mom said both spreads had eight candles because I needed and extra one for good luck, but honestly I think she just had trouble counting again. It's ok, sometimes it's hard to keep count and light fires at the same time.

Happy birthday to me (part 7)

I keep getting older, but one thing that never gets old is checking in with my good buddy the big bear.

Here he is when I was just a few days old:

Here he is at my first birthday:

At my second birthday:

At my third birthday:

At my fourth birthday:

At my fifth, still looking small:  

At my sixth birthday last year: 

And here he is today:

For more perspective, here's what the bear looks like when he make a crazy face:

He's a jokster, that bear. And he's super patient to put up with this every year, especially when he doesn't grow at all.

Ready for the baseball season

Our arms are rested, ready and looking good. When do the Phillies games start?

Heading for home

Spring training started this week, so Tommy and I started practicing just in case the Phillies need some help. Tommy's form was pretty good, but my shirt choice was better for the team.

Personal style

Mom's sweater plus Jonathan's shoes equals a perfect outfit for me.

Happy Valentine's Day

I'm in love with any holiday that brings more of its own candy.

A Day at the Museum

Emma and I got to take Mom and Dad to go see dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum this weekend, and they were as awesome as you think. It's the first time I've ever seen a T-Rex skeleton, and that guy was scary!

The Triceratops was much friendlier. I wanted to pet him, but Dad said something about 63 million year old bones and rules and stuff. 

Emma was a little worried about the size of the dinosaurs, but she loved the skeletons of the cats and the smaller animals. But she couldn't pet them either. Spoilsports.  

Of course, when the giraffe models tried to eat her, she was a little unhappy again. 

And we got to walk through the butterfly house too. The one on the tree in front of me was the size of my face! I didn't even think about petting that thing. Who knows what a giant butterfly is capable of.

Glamor shots

The key to pulling off a ladybug costume while wearing your pajamas is accessories -- lots of bracelets and necklaces. It's what all the big celebs do on the red carpet.

Freezing frisbee

Hot or cold, Tommy and I look good tossing those things around the yard.
