Another weekend, another picnic
We went to a picnic at David and Catherine's house - pretty soon they're going to have a mini-Diviney! I think that means a baby because I saw a crib and some baby stuff in the house and they don't have a baby! Anyway, I met all sorts of nice people...and played in the grass. I am not walking a lot more - just a few steps here and there and sometimes I just stand on my own and I don't even notice. Usually I am doing something important like reading Mommy's shopping list.
There were a couple of really nice dogs there including Zinck. As you know, I really like to visit with dogs. I tried to feed Sam some sausage but I'm not sure he got any before Mom took it away.
I got to meet Greta - I guess I met her when I was a baby but I don't remember. She's really grown up and nice. She showed me how she kicks when she swims. I have to try that the next time I go to the pool with Mom. I also got to visit with Beckham a little. We tried to make a date to play another time. He's so sweet - he gave me a little kiss!
Tomorrow is Daddy's Day. We're not doing anything fancy but I'm going to try to be a really good girl for Dad.

I see toothy grins in my future
I know that I've been talking about my teeth a lot - that I'm working really hard to get them to come in. Well, finally, three are really coming through. I think I've got three more coming but Mom can only see tiny bits of two. Anyway, I asked Mom to take some photos so you can see that I haven't been fussing about nothing!
I know that you all know that I'm still a lot of fun when I'm not feeling well but I a fuss more when I'm done playing and I'm tired or when I'm trying to sleep at night. I like to keep busy so I don't have to think about my achey mouth. Anyway, at least I have something to show for it now!
Oh, two nights ago Mom and Dad finally noticed some of my walking efforts. Now I try to take a couple of steps on my own from one piece of furniture to another. I'm getting ready for longer walks though! I wrote about some of my exercises below but I also spend a lot of time standing and just barely holding onto something. Yesterday, I was standing in the yard holding onto a big rock and I waved to our neighbor. I didn't even notice that I wasn't holding on. Hah! Mom noticed, though, and scurried closer to "spot" me. I didn't think that was necessary - there were a lot of rocks and bricks to break my fall but she can be that way.
I also LOVE to play outside now. I will fuss and fuss and fuss until I get to go out. I HATE it if Scout goes outside without me. I'll try to write more about my outside adventures but I should be napping!
