Orion & Kai's Home Page

Once upon a time, in a cold far away place a baby was born... his name was Orion. These are the accounts of his journey through life on this strange planet. Not too far after that, we headed for the beach! And Kai sailed into our lives...

The Great Fair

The Fountain Hills Great Fair was in town, and we got to go!!! And it was right in our backyard!!! What a busy day!!

My hair is all slicked over because Mom and Dad thought it necessary to slather me in sunscreen. But boy did I need it!!! I got to see lots of stuff. Lots of dogs in strollers like me, even some in chest carriers like I have too!!! I made great friends with a 14 month old girl (all the older women just love me). I met a golden retriever that made me laugh SOOO hard every time he barked!! I just couldn't stop!! (And neither could Mom or the people around us!)

I also got a little blotchy with a runny nose and watery eye, and we're still not sure why, but think it might be from a new kind of grass at the park. But we got home and I got to splash around in the tub and now I'm all better!!!

Wow...what a day!!! I definitely slept well that night!!

(And Lily, I'm thinking about you!!! Please take care!!!)

Either I have new nose hairs growing, or I am not very happy with all of you.

Although finally I see that some of you left comments, not many of you have been lately. I need to know that you care! I need to know that you check up on me!!! I am very disappointed and it's written all over my face.

I didn't want it to come to this, but I WILL boycott if I have to!!

(There...I said it...I feel much better now)

Hallelujah to Beets!!!

If I were to start my own following, I think I might call it 'The Beet and Cauliflower Movement'.

Dad thought he'd make something new for me to try on my 8 month birthday, so he brought home beets and cauliflower to mix up.

And contrary to what Mom and Dad were both saying, I loved them!!!!

(It's just an added bonus that I'll be able to make giant messes with them)

8 Months

I demand that everyone know I'm 8 months old today!!

I'm crawling all over the place, standing, and getting into everything already. And it's all just begun...


It's not always playtime.

Sometimes I actually need a nap.

Happy 3rd Anniversary!!!

I thought it fitting to give Mom and Dad something for their anniversary....

With just a little help, I can now stand up!

Can you?

It's TEE Time!!!

Since it's Mom's birthday weekend and the PGA tour is in town, we all went to the FBR Open!

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen that many people in one place in my WHOLE LIFE!!! We got some much needed sun on our Minnesota skin, and watched lots of pro golfers!!!

We even saw Davis Love III make an Eagle! (Whatever that means-I'm told it's a good thing).

Hide 'N' Seek

Since Dad took Mom out to dinner for her birthday, I got to have a babysitter!!!

Ashley was great. But I couldn't let her off easy!! I had to give her a little bit of a hard time and keep her on her toes!!!

(Great hiding spot, huh?)
