Everyone loves Munchkin

This Robbie guy of ours seems very popular.  I'm often stopped on the streets or have random people talk to me about him.  I wonder if this happens to everyone with a new baby?  I'm sure it does.  Today was no exception and it was a couple of ladies from the Buddhist temple around the corner from out house.  One of them was one of the nuns based on her mode of dress.  I got off the streetcar as they were walking up the street to wait for one.

Anyway, neither of the ladies spoke much in the way of english, but they had quite the chat with Robbie who provided smiles and giggles.  I have no idea what they were telling him, but he seemed to love it.  I ended up spending a good five minutes on the street corner.  They seemed very sad to see us go.

The Snugglebug is a Yardstick

Yes it's time for one of those comparison posts.  Check out how HUGE my baby boy is now.  My little munchkin isn't so little anymore.

Toes in the Grass

On Tuesday we took our little Munchkin to the park for the first time.  We don't have any grass in our backyard so we needed to go to the park for it.  He was kind of surprised by the grass at first, but seemed to really like it.  I think we will be going to the park fairly frequently from now on so he can play in the grass.

Happy Half Birthday

A very Happy Half Birthday to my little guy.  I can't believe he is 6 months old today.  Where has the time gone?  He's getting bigger every day.  He's also changing every single day.  He's learning new skills and sounds at what seems like an astounding rate.

He's such a cheerful little boy who loves everyone and flirts with all the girls.  I can't imagine life without this sweet little guy in it anymore.  I'm looking forward to the next 6 months and all it brings.....I just hope it doesn't go too fast.

First Motorcycle

I've been a bit slow about posting up all the neat stuff Robbie has been doing of late.  We've been busy getting out in the good weather and playing.  This is a post worthy thing.  On the long weekend we were at my parents cottage and Robbie finally got to meet a couple of his Aunts who live nearby.  It was lots of fun.

His Aunty M got him a little prezzie.  You see, he recently got his first truck.  So she found him his first motorcycle!

It's pretty gosh darn cool that Spiderman Motorcycle.  I think he likes it!

Robbie Likes Carrots

Our wee boy is in full on teething mode these days.  Even thought he has his miserable moments, he's still pretty cheerful.  He's a total drooly mess and I keep forgetting to put bibs on him so he goes through lots of onesies every day.  Thankfully he has tons of them :)

We've been trying lots of things to help with the teething.  The usual, cold cloth, cooled teething rings etc...  He's not so much into them.  But he does seem to like baby carrots fresh from the fridge.

I hold them and he gnaws on them.  They seem to fascinate him and make his gums fee better at the same time.  Who knew?  And I get the lovely present of a baby carrot covered in drool dip to eat.

Here's hoping that some of these teeth actually show up at some point so he doesn't have to be in pain so much anymore.  It seems like they are taking forever.  Mind you I don't really know how long they are supposed to take either.

Playing with toys

Today I put a carousel out for Robbie to play with.  He's still figuring out what to do with it, but he does seem to think it's kind of neat.

Another attempt with Food

I'm a little behind in posting news and photos of our wee Robbie.  Since the last time I posted we've been to Sick Kids for a neo-natal checkup.  During the course of the course of appointment we told them we had started a wee bit of food as per our regular doctors.  We were told that we should wait longer due to the preemie issues.  So we have decided to wait a little longer.  It's no biggie.  We had only tried him on food twice anyway.  But I did want to bring you a photo of the last time we tried giving him some food.
