Jolly Jumping

Today was the second time we put you in the jolly jumper. The first time dad put you in it was a few weeks ago when it first arrived from your Aunty Jo. The top of the seat reached to just under your chin and you were not overly impressed. Today was a different matter.

I have a feeling you are going to be walking before you learn to crawl!

Still Growing

Yup, today marks the day that he's officially into size 2 diapers.  The size 1 diapers were getting mighty tight on him.  We used the very last one late yesterday and he's now into the comfy size 2.

I know babies grow quickly, but i kind of wish he was stay this small for a wee bit longer.

More Rolling!

Bruce just told me that today while I was out on my bike ride (a mere 20 minutes today) our wee man managed to roll over from his tummy to his back twice!  I'm so proud of him.  I can't wait to see it myself.

Look how he's Grown!

One of my favorite Aunts sent Robbie a really cute Snugglebug while he was in the hospital.  It was pretty much bigger than he was as you can see from the photo below:

I took this photo a couple of days ago and I almost can't believe the difference:

Rolling Over

Yup our Robbie is changing every day.  Today we were playing on the playmat with Robbie and he was doing a lot of rolling around and trying to roll from his back onto his tummy.  He's been doing pretty well with getting onto his side, but then all of a sudden he managed to roll onto his tummy.  It was pretty cool.  Now all he has to do is figure out how to get back.  He's not so fond of being on his tummy.  We were so proud of him.

He's a Hockey Kid

Looks like our Robbie likes Hockey as much as his Dad.  Last night the Pittsburg/Tampa Bay game was on the TV and he was mesmerized by it.

I think at this point it's really lots of movement on contrast that interests him right now, but I'm sure he and his Dad will be talking hockey soon enough.

A little while ago I was changing my wee man's outfit for the third time today and I noticed something on the interesting side.  He tends to laugh and make neat noises when I have him on the changing table so his mouth was wide open.  And what do I see on his bottom gums, but two little white bumps!  Looks like teeth are going to be here soon.

I was kind of hoping it would be much later than this, but apparently not.  I knew I was doomed with the amount of drool he's been producing this week.

Something About the Change Table

There is something about the change table in Robbie's room that he really loves.  Almost every time we put him there to change his diaper he becomes Mr. Happy Smiley Guy.  He makes all sorts of happy sounds and smiles.  He does little dances and generally has fun interacting with us.

It's probably that he's happy he's getting that nasty wet diaper changed to a new one, but still it's nice.  We will often stay for a little while talking and tickling him on the change table.

Of course every once in awhile he is Mr. Cranky and screams his little head off while we are changing his diaper.  Thankfully though, it is fairly infrequent now.  When is was much smaller he would scream to get the diaper changed and scream the whole way through.

Our little guys is learning some new skills.  He's starting to connect the grabbing reflex with picking things up.  Yesterday he accidentally picked up some plastic keys and was looked very surprised.

I put his Sophie giraffe in his hands a couple of times and he waved it about a bit.

So we will have to see this week what he does.

Today was our follow up with our Cardiologist at Sick Kids.  It went very well.  Looks like we have a healthy kid.  They don't want to see us again for a year.  He's been cleared to be a totally normal kid with no restrictions!  We are ever so pleased about that.

He had sedation today and didn't like it one little bit.  I've never seen the poor guy cry so hard.  The sedation medication tastes really horrible apparently.   He's been pretty chill for the most part since he's had the sedation, however, he has been far more alert and awake than we had expected.  I'm hoping he actually sleeps tonight since he's been asleep for most of the day.

4 Months

Happy 4 Month Birthday Robbie!

It's hard to believe you've been with us for 4 whole months already. 

You are such a joy and we love you more and more each day.

Love Mom & Dad

Robbie starting to laugh

Our little Robbie is working on making a variety of sounds.  One of them is something that we think is him trying to laugh.  He just sounds like teradactyl.  It is just far too cute as far as I'm concerned.   Right now he's  lying on a play mat while I type this hopefully tiring himself out to go to bed.  He is such a night owl.  

We'll have to try and get it on tape to have a record of it.  He's changing and growing so fast it's amazing and I have to stop and remind myself every day to cherish every moment of it.
