Hi everybody. I want to start my saying Happy Mother's Day to Mom and Grandma and Gram. Dad and I were sick on Sunday, so we weren't able to celebrate too much. Luckily everybody is feeling better now.

Yesterday was pretty exciting. I went for a bike ride with Mom and Dad. I get to wear a funky looking hat, and I get my own trailer all to myself. It was a lot of fun. After the bike ride, I helped Mom and Dad pull up plants. They kept saying, "No Billy, we're just pulling out the weeds today," but I can't tell a weed from not a weed. I just wanted to help so I'd pull whatever I could. Then Mom and Dad found a way for me to help out really good. They'd put the weeds on the ground, and I'd carry them over and put them in the bucket. I was good at that because I just thought of the weeds as sticks, and I know how to pick up sticks.

That's all for now, Love Billy

I've been a really busy boy lately. Last week, Mom and Dad took me to this place where everybody dressed funny, I think they called it Frankenmuth. They had really yummy chicken there. Plus, I got a couple of nice long naps in the car.

I also had my 15 month doctor appointment. I'm 32 1/2 in. tall, and I weigh 29 pounds. I didn't have much fun though because I got 4 shots. At least I don't have to get anymore for a really long time, plus they gave me a sucker.

At home I've become a really good climber. I can climb on most furniture now. And when I'm paying attention, my dismounts are usually pretty good. But when I'm not paying attention, I tend to fall, luckily there's always someone there to catch me.

Yesterday was a lot of fun. I got to play outside because the weather was nice. That's good because there have been a lot of sticks that I haven't been able to deal with. Plus, Aunt Kristin came to visit me. I showed her I took care of all the sticks in the yard. I miss my Aunt Kristin because I don't get to see her very often. Well, that's all for now.

Love Billy

While this isn't necessarily about me, I'm a big Elmo fan so when I found out he testified before a congressional committee yesterday I just had to link to it. Doesn't he look cute in his suit and tie?

I'm feeling much better now. I haven't run a fever for a couple of days, and my rash is starting to disappear. Plus, I seem to be getting my appetite back. Yay!

It turns out that I haveHand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. It isn't very fun at all. My mouth really hurts and I can't eat or drink much. Luckily it's only supposed to last a couple more days.

I really love all this nice weather we've been having. Playing outside is so much fun. I've been helping Mom and Dad by walking around the yard an picking up sticks. I carry the sticks all over the place until I drop them in a pile. Grandma and Grandpa bought me a picnic table for outside. Sometimes I sit at the picnic table and play with my sticks. Sticks are great, I wish that I would have known about these along time ago. The worst part about playing outside is that I have to come inside when Mom and Dad want to go in. I don't much care for that at all. I don't like it because Mom and Dad make me leave all my sticks outside, even though I don't want to let go. But Mom and Dad are bigger than me so I have to do what they say. I just don't have to be very happy about it.

Today I'm sad though because I'm sick so I can't play outside. I have a fever and I just feel too yucky. I had to go to the doctor yesterday. She said I have an ear infection, but she thought I might have something else also so they had to draw blood. That wasn't much fun at all. Hopefully I'll feel better soon so I can play outside.

Hey everyone. I just wanted to drop a quick post to let every one know that I had a great Easter. I got to see my Aunt Kristin which was a lot of fun. We played together quite a bit, and she got me a neat duck.

My mouth has been hurting because I'm getting more teeth. I don't see what I need them for, I was eating perfectly well with just two. It all just seems lik a big hassle.

Last night Mom and Dad went on a date, and Susan (Susan works with Dad) came over to play with me. We had a good time.

Well, that's about all that happenned last week. Love Billy
