A Long Time Coming

July 30th, 2009 by Tracy

So I went the entire month of June without updating and then when I tried to update the site was broken!  I’ve been scolded multiple times for not updating. My apologies! Ian had his 9 month check up in June and he was 31 inches and 22 lbs. He’s tall!

I’m just going to throw a bunch of pics from June and July up here. All of them are from around the house. He’s pulling up and cruising and I fear that the walking independently will be here way too soon. He now walks behind his push toys! He waves, and claps his hands too!

JUNE!

A Day in the Park

April 10th, 2009 by Tracy

Jason and I walked down the street to a park near our house. I thought that the park was just ball fields but a friend told me that there is in fact a play ground there with infant swings. After his late afternoon nap we put him in his stroller and headed to the park. He was fasinated with the other people at the park so our pictures are all of the side of his head.

Here is a quick video. The first part is from last week. I was trying to get him doing his little bunny hop that he does. The second part is from this morning. He got really angry when I took the camera away, but I edited that out so everyone would be smitten by his cuteness.

Happy Birthday Charlize

February 15th, 2009 by Tracy

Today was Ian’s, Aunt Charlize’s 4th birthday party. We were a little late, but we made it! Here are some pics of Ian at the party.

When we got home it was dinner time, and he was making me laugh while he ate, so I decided to video it.

Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14th, 2009 by Tracy

Ian turned 5 months old on Wednesday. I can’t believe it’s been 5 months. He’s going to be mobile before we know it. He’s getting bigger and bigger by the day. His 9 month sleepers are stretched to the fullest. I gave him pears today for the first time. It was his first baby food. He ate it all up!

We’re hopeful to get a new car in the next year, so we decided to go to the car show to get a look at all the cars we like in one place. Beats traveling from dealership to dealership. Ian did really well. He started getting tired towards the end so we found a quiet spot in the Convention Center and just hung out for a few minutes until he calmed down and then we headed home. We got some pictures while we were relaxing in the quiet spot:

I love the 4th picture. It looks like he’s angry and ready to beat someone up “you wanna mess with me!?”

Storyville

January 31st, 2009 by Tracy

We took Ian to Rosedale Library today to visit the Baby Garden in Storyville. I didn’t get a good nap out of him prior to going so he was cranky after about 30 minutes, but we had fun until then! Anyone with a little one, I highly recommend visiting, it’s such a neat place!

Unfortunately since he didn’t get good naps prior to going, he has been super cranky today, and pretty much refused to nap. I think it was a combo of the poor naps this morning along with over stimulation, because man was he distracted by everything going on around the place!

I just would like to point out, in that last picture, I am not touching him, he’s balancing himself! Even though he’s a little upset about it.

Merry Christmas Early

December 5th, 2008 by Tracy

We took Ian to see Santa today. We got there when Santa was on break so there was a line. Ian was great while we waited in line. He was fasinated by the lights and wide awake until we were 2 kids away from Santa, then he fell asleep. We put him in Santa’s arms and he stayed asleep, they took the picture, still sleeping. Right after the picture, he woke up. It’s ok though, it turned out pretty cute anyway.

Thanksgiving

November 28th, 2008 by Tracy

There are so few pictures of me and Ian that I made Jason take a picture before we left.

My little sister-in-law Charlize holding Ian for the first time.

Charlize helping feed Ian. She did such a great job!

Madelyn’s 5th Birthday

November 23rd, 2008 by Tracy

Yesterday was my God Daughter Maddie’s 5th birthday party. It was a bowling party and all the kids had a great time. I however managed to hurt my neck. I kind of stink at bowling.


Proof that Ian can sleep anywhere…


Beautiful Maddie holding Ian. This makes him look so big!


Best friends with their babies. Also baby weight…ughhh.

2 months

November 11th, 2008 by Tracy

Ian is 2 months old today!

Yesterday we went to visit Aunt Becky and Gabby. Gabby is a month older then Ian. They are the same length but Ian is a lot beefier. Gabby is the happiest baby I’ve ever met!

These shots are from today. I had to get some shots of Daddy and Ian since Ian was wearing his V. 2.0 tshirt and he’s such a mini me to Jason.

Trip to Grandmom’s

November 1st, 2008 by Tracy

I talked to Pap and told him all my secrets!

I only talked to Uncle Billy for a few minutes, then I started to cry.

Aunt Dawn had to keep that big furry guy Jeb
away because he wanted to lick me. But Jeb
was nice enough to pose for a picture with me.

I wasn’t sure what to make of that big furry guy at first…

…but decided he was “good people” and that we
would be best friends (I can’t wait to pull his tail
when I can walk).
