6 weeks old!

We have big aspirations of Colben becoming a Pirate

the kids

Colben's been a bad, bad boy

Tuesday July 28th
Hot sooooooo hot
Today was 32 degrees right now it is midnight and is still 22 degrees which is the daytime normal. Colben is one unhappy baby and so am I.

Wednesday July 29th
This morning Colben Lily and I went for a walk with our friend Marie-Eve from prenatal class. It was crazy to see how small her daughter (3weeks) is although she out weighs Colben by a couple pounds. Good news I am down 25lbs now from pregnancy weight! Honestly it is probably water loss from the heat but I'll take good news when I get it.

Thursday July 30th,
The heat continues across the west coast breaking records. Colben is miserable and doing his best impression of Linda Blair, puking all over. Last night he screamed, shrieking cries for over an hour straight and I was totally unable to comfort him.l Today it is too hot to go out so I am going to try to log Colben's activites so that we can start to see a pattern for establishing a routine. I just realized I hadn't mentioned Colben's milestone. He has just started social smiling (which means it isn't gas)He still is pretty selective about when he will smile but those 1 or 2 times a day it is like the sun is shining only on you.

Smiling!! I want to see!:)

How come so cranky at night.......just the heat?

Congratulations on the weight loss Mischa. It will continue to come off. You look great no matter what!

Well Grandma takes possession of her new house tomorrow Colben. Can't wait for you to come for a visit. Make sure you bring mommy and daddy!

Love to All

What's with the weather? When was the last time it rained on the West coast? Colben is born and suddenly it is sunshine every day?

Stay cool in the basement. Does Colben like to bathe - perhaps giving him a cool bath might help with his fretfulness.

We will be over on Tuesday after we get settled at Goldstream Park.

Say HI to Ædam and give Colben a hug and a kiss from us.

I am working on Uncle Eugenes key board but none of the punctuation keys work properly . . .
