Annalía at the Yard

The smell of Boog's Bar-b-que as the steam arises in front of the warehouse and disappears into the bright lights illuminating the freshly cut patterned grass and chalk lines that mark the base path. Is there any better place than being a part of America's past time at one of the most beautiful parks - Camden Yards?

I was there to see Daniel Cabrera throw a shutout into the 6th inning (it's about time). I was there when foul balls came whizzing by our heads from our great seats behind home plate. I cheered as a train of loyal Baltimore fans marched throughout the stadium pleading with the O's owner (who's done nothing but run the team into the ground) to sell the team to Cal Ripken. I stuffed my face with delicious Boardwalk French fries. I reluctantly met the scary Oriole mascot. And I was there when Nick Markakis hit the game winning homerun (he was due) to give the Orioles a 3-2 win over the Royals.

The enchanted evening at Camden Yards with Daddy, Nana, and Grandpa (mommy was busy working) brought me back to the days of my youth, when at just 10 days old, my parents took me to my first ball game. Ah to be young again.

I'm Everywhere

So, the older I get, the more I can get around. Basically, Mommy has her hands full. I love to sit on her lap while she works, whether at the computer, or the sewing machine. And I am totally good at climbing. You'd be amazed at what I can climb. Mommy and Daddy were too when they turned around. Of course, sometimes my exploring got me into trouble.

Wahoo - New Toys!

One cool thing about being around for a year, is that people give you toys just for being born! My Gram and Grandpa sent me a life size CareBear. I give him kisses. And Aunt Angi sent that cool book, I love how the numbers feel like felt. Jaylan gave me a baby in a stroller, which I love to push around. And then there is that cool Animal Magnet thing on the fridge. I love to dance when it says I made a match! Playing is so much fun! And can you tell I love books, the big one is from Beth, (my green tongue is from a sucker, people just give them to you when you are cute like me!)

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yup, One year old, boy how time flies. Mommy is still crashed from the busy week we had. It started with a family dinner at Chuck E. Cheese's for by actual birthday. Let me just say, that is one cool place. I practically had all the games to myself, and between me, Daddy, and Tio PePe, we won enough tickets to get me a cool bowling set. Then came the big party. Daddy dressed me in a cool new outfit with my "Newsies" hat. I had a blast opening all the cool stuff people brought. And the cake! Mommy was inspired by that waterfall picture, and she made a cool waterfall cake. It rocked, and I devoured my piece! Then, after the sugar rush, boy did I crash!

Day at the Beach

Yup, that's me, that smoking beach beauty. Ocean City is the bomb. Me and my buds, Marianna and Frankie, took our 'rents to the beach this last weekend. I helped Daddy dig a huge hole, then he threw me in it and piled the sand around me. I was chill, didn't even freak out. Even when my face was covered in sand. Mommy just threw me in the ocean and I was magically clean. Then we hit the boardwalk, went on some mega-cool rides. After that we were all pooped, and fell asleep on the walk back to the cars. I can't wait to visit the Mazza's again, they know how to have a good time! I was there for Marianna's birthday party (she is the one sporting the Marilyn Monroe pose), she gave me some good tips for getting through my day. Number one, look awesome. Number 2, make sure you smile for each present, and Number three, eat lots of cake!
