Quick, look before I eat the sign!
Playing with butterflies. I love butterflies.

Okay, so it started at 4:30 in the morning when our security system alarm went off. This has never happened before (except when mommy or daddy forget it's activated and accidentally open a door) so mommy and daddy were very startled. They jumped out of bed and turned on the lights. Then, the security dispatcher called and said that their system showed our basement window had been broken. So daddy went to check it out. There was no broken glass and the windows were still closed and locked. Daddy was confused. In the meantime, I woke up crying because the alarm was sooo loud and mommy was in my room rocking me back to sleep. Mommy put me back to bed and she and daddy were going to go back to bed themselves....until it happened again! I woke up crying again and didn't want to go back to sleep so daddy gave me a bottle and then went to work while mommy tried to go back to sleep. She was kind of scared though and made sure that daddy reset the alarm when he left for work since it was still dark outside. Once mommy and I woke up a few hours later, we went outside to investigate. There were no footprints in the mulch and the windows looked fine. We were beginning to think it was a false alarm just like daddy said. But then you'll never believe what we spotted. Yes, that's right...we caught the suspect who tried to break into our house! We named him Peeping Fred. Mommy didn't call the cops on him because he had his baby with him and mommy is a softy when it comes to babies. So we gave Fred a warning and let him off the hook.

Grandma Ruth came over for a visit after I woke up in the morning (after sleeping 12 1/2 hours, by the way!) It was so nice to meet her. Mommy talks about Grandma Ruth all the time. Grandma Ruth was married to mommy's Grandpa Sacksteder. Grandpa Sacksteder went to heaven before I was born, but he got to meet me when I was in mommy's belly, which mommy is very happy about. Mommy and I pray to Grandpa Sacksteder every night before we go to bed and tell him to give God a big hug thanking him for taking care of us and making us all better when we were both sick. Needless to say, my Grandma Ruth is very special.
After my morning nap,we went to visit Grandma and Grandpa Nevius. They are mommy's grandparents. I have met both of them before and actually just saw Grandma Nevius a few days ago. Mommy told me that when she was a little girl, she was at Grandma and Grandpa's house every day. They only lived a block away! She said she learned how to be such a good cook from her Grandma and got her sense of humor from her Grandpa. Grandpa Nevius is so funny. He tells the funniest jokes and stories. When mommy was little, he would trap her in his legs and not let her go. This always made mommy laugh so hard! He taught Mommy how to roll a ball when Mommy was just a little older than me and he also taught her how to whistle. Oh, and he made sure mommy ate her bread crust because that's what makes you whistle!
Sharing my toy with Grandpa Nevius.
Before I had to leave to go home, Gammy took me to the park by her house. As usual, I LOVED the swing.We also went down the slide for the first time. I liked it, but I'm sure I'll LOVE it, too, when I get a little bigger.
Who do you think had more fun - me or Gammy? Oh, my Gammy is just too cute!
