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.

Family picture as we were leaving!

Snow Day

January 28th, 2009 by Tracy

Loyola closed today because of the gross weather, so we have a day at home with Ian. I put him in his bumbo and sat him in front of his bounce-a-roo to play with dangling toys and he decided he didn’t want to play with them, he wanted to play with his feet instead! And then some toys that I handed him.

Mr. Smiles

January 27th, 2009 by Tracy

Ian has been Mr. Happy Baby lately, even without taking good naps. I probably shouldn’t say it because I’ll jinx it and he’ll get crabby again. I forgot to update after his 4 month well baby visit. He weighed 17.5 lbs and was 27.5 inches long. His personality is showing itself more and more every day, and he’s turning out to be a very stubborn little man with his own mind!

Here are some pictures of him cuddling with Teddy Spaghetti:


This is what happens if we change his diaper anywhere but his changing table:

We gave rice cereal a test run today. He’s not quite ready, he took the spoon easily he just didn’t know what to do with the goop in his mouth.



I think I like my fingers better, but mommy wasn’t sure what I thought so she tried again.


No, I still don’t know what to do with it, but mommy thought that the 3rd time would be it.


I decided that I like my bib better.

We put Ian in his bounce-a-roo for the first time yesterday, and this morning he decided he liked the frog a whole whole lot. Now whenever we put him in it he tries to eat the frog. I thought it was funny so I taped it!
