December 16, 2004

Anthony: I walked a little more today. I now clap while walking a few steps before I sit down. I love to scamper over to our Christmas tree like a spider on all fours (yes, I know most spiders have 8 legs) and then stand up and point at the tree. I can stand there and point at ornaments for hours....or...a couple minutes until I get bored and want to crawl over and try to eat some of Maggie's food nearby.

Anthony: I stood up from my big red chair and took 3 whole steps today!

December 6, 2004

Anthony: I finally got around to posting my Thanksgiving pictures. Sorry for the delay again. Also...I got 2 more teeth over the past weekend. 2 more on the bottom. There is a new holiday surprise on the main pictures page. Just put your mouse over my picture as always. If for some reason you still see the little indian, refresh the page by pressing the F5 key on your keyboard. If that still does not work, try clearing your cache (temporary internet files). If you don't know what I am talking about, let me know.

Anthony: I got 2 more lower teeth. My upper teeth have been described as 2 little bars of soap sticking out of my gums. I don't care. They serve me well for eating carrots and the occasional bite at day care.

December 3, 2004

Anthony: I said "Ma-ma" today for the first time, or at least that's what Mommy thought I said. I really was just blabbering as usual but happened to press my lips together just right and it came out like "Ma-ma" a couple times. Sorry, Mommy. I'll get it right eventually.

Anthony: I sat on Santa's lap today at the mall in Rochester, NY. He was O.K. at first. Then he smelled kinda funny and his beard was itchy and I thought my parents might leave me there on his big red lap, so I started crying. They got one picture of me before I really let loose though. I don't know why I thought they would leave me there.  Santa wasn't so bad after all.

November 20, 2004

Anthony: I got a birthday present a little early. It's my big red chair. I love sitting in it, climbing on it, catapulting backwards off of it, slouching down and chilling in it. I'm cool. I know it.

November 17, 2004

Anthony: I took 2 steps towards my mommy!

November 13, 2004

Anthony: New camera! That's why there are so many more pictures...and movies this week. So, no more complaints about the darkness of my pictures. There are lots of good ones this week. The new movies require Apple Quicktime, which you may or may not already have. If you need it click HERE  to get it. It's free. This format is much easier to get the movies out there faster in case you were wondering why the switch. Enjoy!

October 24, 2004

Anthony: This week I like to clap when I stop doing something that I am not supposed to be doing. There are some pictures this week of me clapping. I prefer to climb on speakers stands, my daddy's TV and the fireplace.

Anthony: Lots of fun lately as you can see from the most recent pictures. My daddy's side of the family visited me for their birthdays in October so we all went to our favorite party restaurant, the Chicago Brauhaus. I wore my best leiterhosen that my uncle Shawn and aunt Emily brought back from Germany for me. I am almost walking, and crawling faster than anyone can catch me. My top 2 teeth are coming in fast and far apart...which is supposed to be a good thing. I am now 23 pounds and 30 inches tall. That is not quite off the charts anymore, so maybe I won't be 7 feet tall after all. Hover your mouse over my picture on the main pictures page for a Halloween surprise!

September 25, 2004

Anthony: Sorry for the lack of pictures lately. I realize it's been a month. I think I make up for the lateness with cuteness in the past 3 weeks' pictures. I've been taking the pictures, but just not posting them. Day care is still going well. I have lots of new friends. Mommy and Daddy are always tired from their new early schedules.

August 25, 2004

Anthony: Lots of changes for me and my mommy and daddy. I am in day care now. Daddy drives me every day on his way to work in the suburbs at his new job. I sleep the whole way there so I can't tell you much about the drive. It seems short to me, but I am sure daddy would tell you otherwise. He is building big trucks at his new job now. Well, actually he is just running the computers that support the company, but I like to say he builds trucks. Mommy is a lawyer at another firm downtown. That's all I know about that. So, all those changes mean not much time for pictures. Sorry. There are a few new ones though, including one of my impression of the kid in Jerry McGuire. "The human head weighs eight pounds..."

August 9, 2004

Anthony: Check out the new pictures for the week of August 7th. You can see me playing with my favorite object in the world at the moment: the chrome garbage can. You can also see me in my nice new baseball outfit and other pictures of me sweeping the floor with my chest.

August 5, 2004  

Anthony: I am almost done with my second website, a.k.a. "baby graz 2.0"....which you are on now. What do you think? That was a big step from just figuring out this crawling thing a week ago, to fairly advanced graphic design and html. I figured a 7 month old couldn't still have a basic site like the original "baby graz". You can still check out the old site for nostalgia's sake if you want. The link is in the bottom right corner of every page.

July 22, 2004  

Anthony: I can crawl (pull myself like a wounded soldier/frog) across the floor. Daddy does not have to dust the hardwood floors anymore!

July 16, 2004  

Anthony: I can make a bridge! I am on all fours!

July 12, 2004  

Anthony: I can talk! Sort of. I say "Dadadada".

Anthony: My first tooth! Bottom left.
