I know I'm due for an update, my son is ONE after all and I havent updated in a few months. I had kind of given up on my blog because my laptop broke AGAIN and I hate using Daniels MAC for blogging and picture uploads...so I refuse. But it's summertime and I'm up at that beautiful cottage on Lake Muskoka that I talked about here and after re-reading the blog and realizing how LITTLE he is there, I wanted to update with some new pictures from up here. I do have my dslr but I forgot my cord to connect it to a computer but I did take some pictures on this snazzy new laptop that Lorna has.
There we are sitting on the exact same couch but this time...
My hair is brown
Cole is walking and talking like crazy, and really enjoys yogurt fruit popsicles.
Gunna add pictures from my camera once I get home.
Time goes by super fast, I never really realized how fast until I watched this little thing grow and change so quickly. It feels like I just blinked and all of a sudden my newborn baby with a huge cast on his left arm turned into a exuberant, curious, little boy with so much character and personality.
I can't remember what it was like before he could sit up on his own. It hasn't even been that long. I'm starting to belive everyone now when they say to cherish these moments because before you know it he's gonna be a back talking, teenager! And we all know if Cole's teenage years are anything like mine or Daniels (god I hope not) he's gonna be a troublemaker to say the least. Karma baby. I'm sure I'll get what I deserve after putting my parents through what I did when I was younger.
We had to get Cole a new snow suit because he's outgrown a total of 3 snowsuits this winter. Holy this boy just keeps growing and growing. The last snow suit we had fit him perfect...except the legs and arms were WAY to short. So last night Daniel went out and got him snow pants instead of a full on snow suit. He has a little winter bomber style jacket so I figure he'll be just as warm. They're the kinda snow pants that look like overalls. So cute. I didn't even know they made snow pants like that for babies. Although it is a 12 month (Medium) size so I guess clothing wise he's not really a baby anymore, more like a toddler (woah). Anyways super good deal on these snow pants, originally they were like $50 and we got them for $6 (yes SIX DOLLARS). Crazy I know. I guess everythings going on sale now because SPRING IS ALMOST HERE! Yay I'm so happy I can say that now.
My baby's sick! I'm assuming he just caught my two day cold I had last week cause I'm around him 24/7. I'm surprised he hasn't been sick yet because I've been a bunch of times since he was born. He doesn't have a fever or anything like that, just a very very runny and stuffy nose which equals into him not being able to breathe out of his nose and therefore he wont sleep! He's so tired. It's 3:30AM and he's been up for the past couple hours. He's being super cuddly which is cute but once he started blabbing and yelling and laughing at the top of his lungs I was scared he was going to wake up the people living upstaires so I put him back in his crib. He's mellowed out a bit but he's still making little noises. I don't know what I can give him for a stuffed up nose... do they have nasal sprays for babies or something? If anyones reading this and knows let me know... I've tried the aspirator and he was NOT having it. It's the most impossible thing to do in the world on my boy, while I was trying to use it on him it reminded me of the time we were at his pediatricians and I asked the Dr. to check Cole for ear infections (He kept pulling at his ears) and it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE for the Dr. to check. I literally had to pin him down and the Dr. had to hold his head down and he was still squirming like crazy. I got a strong kiddo on my hands!
I was looking at my pregnancy pictures Tonight. It's such a weird thing to see. It was around this time last year when my belly really started to pop out. And I thought I looked HUGE! Then I look at the pictures where I'm like 30+ weeks and it's a whole different story, I am now fully aware as too why countless people asked me if I was carrying twins during my last trimester. I was seriously a whale. I look at the pictures and I'm like really? How did I even sit down???? It's crazy too think that at this time last year he was only the size of a banana!!!
Its such a scary thought, he's growing up so fast.
We went out for dinner at Jack Astors today with his Auntie Sarah and good friend Jaimie Angus. He had fun sitting in his highchair, eating crayons instead of drawing on the table, stealing smiles from randoms, eating french fries and pickles! He also ate yummy orange sorbet!
blue eyed baby
Things I want to remember about him in this moment:
The "Guh" noise. Constant yelling. Highfives (he really knows how!) His funny eyebrow movements. His crazy hair. We lowered his crib to the lowest setting last week. Only momma can really make him laugh. Still loving the peek-a-boos. Finally got the sippy cup down! Stands on his own, squats, then stands again. (no help) ....Continues to amaze me every single day.
I love this boy with my whole heart. All of it!
Ona side note I decided to do some fun make-up for the dinner and this is what I came up with! I thought it was a good picture!
