First Steps

I know... I'm still pretty shaky, but these are literally some of my first steps. (Before I forget, I'd like to thank my boys Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee for the inspirational background music.) 
My record distance was set on Sunday at 20 feet - and I'm not talking baby feet here people! For the young kids coming up behind me, all I can say is take it one step at a time.

Loads of people have been asking for more photos. Well, here you go. As a side note, I will mention that they are mainly of me. However, in other ways it's quite a diverse collection.
There's me smiling then sullen, questioning then playful, crawling then dominating, sharing then giggling, swinging then posing, side-faux hawking then Brandoing, busing then hanging, breaking then entering, and finally thinking then snuggling.
Second side note: I am currently 31" tall, and have set a personal goal of walking, unaided mind you, before I hit 12 months. As a wise man once said... We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.

Top o' the mornin' to ya!

Well, apparently today was a pretty big day for Dublins everywhere. As usual, I spent the day roaming around the city introducing myself to people - they couldn't believe it when I told them my name. Several people offered to buy me a drink, but I told them that was a ridiculous offer as I have an unlimited supply. (I'm told that I'll appreciate the offer later on.)
Earlier in the week I went to my buddy Jasper's 2nd Birthday Party (that's me in the 'Liverpool 4 - 1 ManUtd' jersey). If all 2nd Birthday Parties are like this, I need to keep making friends with anyone in the 0 - 23 month old window. Hosts put out an impressive spread and let you have'at'er, they add whipped cream to yogurt (!), and give you bags of goodies when you leave. I gotta tell you, that sounds like a party for Dublin to me.

Back in my Crib

I will start by sending out a big Thank You to the trio that kept me company at the end of February while my parents were away. And thanks again for the MusicalJungle. I'm telling ya - the fun that thing brings - it never ends.
Back home now with the 'rents - I have to say, it was kinda nice to get a little break from them - I mean it's all the time with those two. They did bring me back some nice things though - including a few pairs of multi-coloured socks that say New York on them. I'm thinking Hellow? Of cowse they're new - who wonts old socks!?
Latest thing with me is that I've started signing - my parents go crazy for it (it's so easy). Every now and then I like to see them lose it - I start with a sign, lead that into some steady clapping, distract them with some word-like gurgling and then knock 'em down with unassisted standing for 5 seconds. (It's almost embarrassing.)
