27 weeks old!

Our friendly giant has taken to growling and screaming for the hell of it. When add terrifyingly sharp claws we have a badger. I fear for the worst when his teeth come in.

Here is a picture of Calgary as of 12:45pm today. 2 more sleeps

26 weeks old!

Sorry about the delay. The household has tummy trouble.
Colben got his 6 month vaccine yesterday and today he is getting his flu shots. Poor guy! I've been stressing about Christmas and travelling but we will soon be in Calgary.

Colben took his shots like a man today!!! What a good boy. After we decided to finish our Christmas shopping (ALMOST DONE!) and he was such a good boy.
He is weighing around 20lbs and is 27.75 inches head is 17 inches- he is huge

Mama had a visit with the doctor too and is going to start metformin for my PCOS related insulin resistance. The Dr say it might make me a little sick for the first bit but maybe it will keep me from eating a plate of mincemeat tarts....mmmmmm mincemeat tarts.....

23 weeks old!

Colben has had a growth spurt big time. he now weighs 18lbs 8 oz and is 27 inches tall. This puts our boy who started out so tiny in the 70-90th percentile range. We are raising a giant!....for now

Getting ready for Colben's 1st Shaw Christmas Party

Waiting for Santa

Colben's present from Santa (photo with Santa was professionally done and will be given to us later

Yum fist

You want some?

Playing with his new non-educational toy which he LOVES

Colben's new boots- all ready for winter!

We went to the multiiples parent group children sale and got Colben a toy bar, and some socks and THANK GOD we found a size large baby wrap as he has out grown his

This is the knited blanket I`ve designed for myself

This is how far I`ve gotten in the last couple of days. I think this going to be one of those "only-once" kind of projects. Notice underneath a couple of pics we finally got a new rug to cover our awful carpet

Please be advised no babies were harmed in the making of this movie. We were lying on a foamy and Colben rolled on his own freewill.

22 weeks old! (5 months)

Wow I can't beleive Colben is already 5 months. Colben is biting and drooling everything in reach. He is still trying to roll over but he just can't get the last part of the twist right (his feet remain stationary while everyting else goes to the side). He is briefly sitting up (5-10sec) and is extremly vocal. He shrieks when is happy he shreiks when he is mad he shrieks when he is tired, he shreiks when is hungry.I should say shreiks and squeals. His nails grow at a speed unheard of to man and are sharp as razors. the other day he had 3 scrathes down the side of his face like Freddie Krueger or Wolverine and this is the day after I cut them.

Adam and I got the H1N1 vax and wow does it hurt the the second day. Why don't they tell you that! Colben won't have his until he is 6months and a 2nd dose 2 weeks later but at least we will know to give him a pain killer because it sucks.

For those thinking of Clothes for Christmas. Colben is now into 6 months clothes, size 2 shoes if you are thinking of getting the next size up- we love one piece rompers like the one below and sleepers in cotton. We just bought his Christmas day outfit- it is sooo cute.

Now not really sure for toys- stuff he can interact with and easily hold as of right now but his skill level changes every day. No more stuffed animals please- we have way too many! And we would prefer no cartoon character stuff (winnie the poo, Mickey Mouse etc)

On the boring pratical side he will need a high chair soon but like other gear I am a bit picky. I would rather get a really nice one used then a new one I don't love as it is going to be a part of our lives for many years and hopefully kids.

Please know whatever he receives he and we will be very grateful and don't overlook used items. Manhattan toys are his favorite and we always get them used and clean them because no one in their right mind would pay 20$ for a teething toy. We have no problem at all with used items.

Colben has already shown to be hooked on one tv show (what an addict). Any time we pass the show "the night Garden " he is enthralled. It is a BBC show somewhere along the line of teletubbies, not much speaking, more like sounds and songs, and british man narrates. It is in between creepy and interesting. Check it out on youtube.

happy birthday auntie Mikael!

21 weeks old!

Pee blanky is a success although I must say I have a new respect for quilters as what was to be a simple project turned into a nightmare curtosey of the plastic inner liner and my lack of planning. I did change the outer trim because I wasn't happy with the colour of the fabric.

Colben took to it right away and so did daddy

Soon Colben showed his appreciation by christening it with pee

Blair witch baby

Colben was pretty tired after the play, peeing and witching- it was a rough day.

Sewing Machine is here-just waiting for fabric

Yay- My birthday/Christmas present arrived. This is my new sewing machine

My first project will be a waterproof blanky for Colben to hang out naked and air out that diaper rash. This is what it will roughly look like:

After that I have fabric ordered to make a stroller seat cover. Here is the stroller and the fabric:

20 weeks old!

Colben thinks he is now a big boy and can hold his own bottle thank you very much!

Soon he will be as big as our awesome godson Ethan who just started kindergarten is waiting for his new baby brother

Below is mama's little helper (no not vodka martini)

This halloween Colben rudely interupted Pumpkin in the washroom causing a moment which will probably result in a lifetime of diapering and therapy

Ninjas live upstairs- although I'm not sure how good of ninjas they are as sometimes we can hear them ;o)

Colben handsome as he is, is becoming way too vain. He is always staring in the mirror fixing his 3 hairs. Oddly enough he never seems to notice the barf down his shirt

P.S. We're rich bitch- don't ask us for money
