34 Weeks: Go! Go! Canadians!

One thing that I better jot down for you is that this year the Winter Olympics are taking place in Vancouver. Our Canadian athletes already have won some medals and are doing well. You have no idea about this yet, but here you are showing your support in your Team Canada T-shirt. You don't have your own hockey stick yet, but you have that toothbrush that you are proudly displaying!

Feb 25.2010- AHHHH! Last night was the first night of my attempt to make you go back to sleep by yourself and let me tell you it wasn't fun. You haven't slept through the night since you were born, and at 8 mo (in a few days) I think it's high time you did! Mommy is tired of waking up 3 times a night, and I know it's not necessary.
So anyway you woke up last night at 11:53 pm. I thought you would cry for 20 minutes or so. But no, 1 hour later you were still crying. The whole time I stood outside your room humming to you and shhhhing until I needed to get some water! You flipped yourself over in your protest and kicked off the blankets so every 10 min or so I turned you back and covered you up. Anyway you finally went to sleep and so did it. At 3 am I woke up and fed you while you were still asleep and changed you. You didn't wake up again until I think about 5:30 am. I just had to ignore you and eventually you went back to sleep until about 6:30 am. I then went and picked you up and we hung out in my bed for awhile.
Mommy is very tired today. But I have to stick with it. I really hope you catch on quickly! I feel so bad, but I know it's for the best! I hope you don't hate me later when you read this. Someday when you have kids you'll understand!

33 Weeks: Me and Mom (and Gingi) Hit the Road!

Well another week has come and gone so quickly! Mommy has been busy sewing and creating getting ready for a trade fair in another week. Maybe she'll become famous! Mommy would like to say that you are a big help, but really you are not! Usually I can put you down for a few minutes, just get ready to sew, and you want something!! But I guess that's the way it goes. So really most things are being done once you are asleep.

Today we went to the salon for haircuts! Yes, another haircut for you! Of course you did not sit still at all, but you didn't cry or anything. But I don't think I will take you again, when I want to get my hair done, you were a handful and I couldn't relax. It was a learning experience...lets just put it that way.
Tomorrow you and I are heading out on our first long road trip together. We are going to see Daddy. Gingi will be with us too of course! And we will get to try out Mommy's new wheels on a long trip. I am a little nervous, but I think it will be okay.

Anyway here is a picture of you and your new 'do.

Feb 22, 2010- We are back from our trip safe and sound! Everything went pretty good. You were a very good traveller, only short bouts of whining, but nothing too bad. We had a few stops along the way to stretch our legs. Daddy was so happy to see you and so were the nice ladies that were working at the camp. They had so much fun with you! We didn't take any pictures while we were there but here you are playing with your new ball and finally a picture of your twp teeth!

32 Weeks: Playing in the Snow

Since winter has come along we haven't spent too much time outside. A few times Mommy has bundled you up and we've gone for a walk. While Daddy was still how we decided we better get some pictures of you in the snow. The weather has been fairly nice, very sunny!

31 Weeks: Daddy Came Home for a Visit

On Tuesday, February 2, Daddy was lucky enough to get a week off of work and he came straight home to see us!
He is home right now, and is so happy to see you and your two teeth. When he arrived it was at night, and I don't think you were too sure who he was. You were looking around for Mommy. But now after a few days Mommy thinks that you have adjusted to ol' dad.

I need to take a picture of you on the rocking chair. I have been doing that every month to compare how much you have grown. You are now seven months old!

You eat meat now...well sort of. You like to spit it out. You have really decided what you like and don't like, so meat isn't so hot on your list yet. You eat yogurt too which you really like.

Daddy has been playing with you lots!

Well now, Feb 9, 2010, we are at the end of the week. It was a busy one! Mommy and Daddy had to spend 2 days in Edmonton, first getting Mommy's car fixed, then buying a new one! Very crazy how it all happened. But we were really unhappy with the service we received and decided that we didn't want to deal with that anymore. So Mommy got a new set of wheels to truck you around in. Its very nice, and even has a sunroof in the back which you like because now you can see the sky!

Mommy hasn't taken any pictures of it yet, but I should! While we were gone Sito came here to stay with you. You were very good as usual, and got spoiled by Sito...as usual! But you were still a little grumpy because of your teeth coming in.

Daddy was sad to leave us. He said he really misses you when he is gone. He told me that he checks the blog all the time for new pictures and just to look at you! Awww how sweet.

OH! I forgot to mention that you discovered your tongue and it's now your favorite thing to show people!
