Santa Claus Parade

Today we went to Robbie's first Santa Claus Parade.  It was pretty fun.  He slept through a lot of it.  In fact it was kind of funny....He slept through the air horns on the 18 wheelers and the sirens and horns on the police cars but woke up to one of the bands.  Go figure. 

He seemed to have fun.  It was more for us than him really.  You could see though that he was following the action .  We didn't stay for the whole parade as it was chilly out and his parents were cold.  We didn't dress as warmly as we dressed him. 

It was lots of fun though and hopefully the start of a tradition.

11 Months Old!

Where has the time gone?  He's such a big happy boy now.  Pretty soon we'll have a 1 year old little boy.  He won't be my baby anymore (well he'll always be my baby).

We had such a busy day today that this was one of the only photo we took today.

Lest We Forget

Today we took our little Munchkin to his first Remembrance Day ceremony.  We went to the ceremony down at Fort York.  It was a beautiful day and a wonderful ceremony.  We wanted to start him young on remembering.

Dear Munchkin,

You are such a nutbar.  You nuzzle right into my shoulder like we're going to have a cuddle, but then you snort into my shirt and lean back and grin.

Nutbar!  But I love it.

Love Mom

Strange thing has happened over the past couple of days.  Robbie's sleeping habits have improved tenfold.    Now of course as I write this he'll wake up.  But he slept on his own in his crib last night from 7:30 pm to 3 am.  He's never done that before ever!  And today he napped really well as well.

I think it may be food related.  I've started to stuff more solid food on a more consistent basis into the little guy. Apparently having a full tummy may make our wee guy sleep a little better.

So we'll see how he does tonight.  Then all we'll have to work on is getting him to learn how to fall asleep on his own.

Mind you all of this could be a total fluke as well.  But we'll see, we'll see.

Growing just a little!

Our little Mr. Munchkin isn't going to be so little anymore I think.  He must be on a major growing spurt or he's just eating a lot more than he used to.  In the past two weeks he's gone from 8.2 kilos to 8.8 kilos  (18.04 Pounds to 19.36 Pounds).  

If this keeps up, we'll have a gigantic child soon.

Today's New Skill

Today our little Munchkin has acquired a really cool new skill!  He has figured out how to snort!  Yes, he now has an essential new life skill.  And now that I've shared that, here's a picture of my cute little guy.

New Sounds

Yesterday our wee Munchkin started making a new little babbling sound.  It's pretty gosh darn cute and I wish you could all hear it.  I'll have to dig out the video camera from wherever I hid it and do a bit of video.

We also had a few major giggle sessions yesterday.  It is such a wonderful thing to make my little man giggle.  He always looks so happy.  I'm getting some strong biceps from it though.  He loves it when I do press ups with him.  And since he seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day, it's getting harder and harder to do.
