YouTube: Smile

I am thinking I may make one of these videos every Christmas. I am sure Christian will be quite embarrassed when he is older. I don't know what is happening to me... I am momming out!

Dr. Montgomery - One Month Appointment

Christian is a healthy boy. Look at how much he has grown in the last three weeks. We go back in another month for his immunizations. Dr. Montgomery also showed me Christian's graph again and he is upper fifty percentile. Right in the middle. He is progressing normally.

I asked Dr. Montgomery about taking Christian swimming when he is six weeks old and he said no problem. The YMCA has Splashers on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 - 11:30 for 0-13 month olds. I think we are going to start attending those swim classes in January. Fun!

Visit with Twigg, Shirley, and Lisa

Some of the dance teachers went to Triple Threat this weekend - a dance convention at The Bayshore. I put Christian in the sling and walked over there to say hi. It was a nice walk and the sling worked well. Christian slept through most of it.

A Visit from Sofia and I Made a Sling

Sofia was in the city and she popped in for a visit. It sounds like everything is going well without me at school. Thanks for the visit Sofia!!
Sofia and Christian
I found a pattern online for a baby sling. It looked really easy so I decided to make one. I went through scraps of material and ended up using my old wedding jeans and some material from the outside couch that I had left over. I wish I had enough jean to make it all out of that.. but I didn't. I did figure out how to turn it the other way so the stripes are on the inside.

Christian and Mommy Hit the C Wall

Jonny had to go to work today. It was a beautiful sunny morning. Even though we had had a rough night getting any sleep because Mr. Christian wanted to be fed, changed, or loved every hour, we decided to get our buts outside and get some of that sun while it was here. I decided the nicest walk would be the C wall. I was so excited to get outside, I forgot my headphones. That would have made the walk even better. 

While waiting at the cross walk two older Asian ladies came to look at the baby. They were surprised I was out with him when he is only twelve days old. The one lady said that Chinese babies must stay inside for two months. That would suck eh? I would hate to sit inside for two months!! They complimented me on having a cute little boy. 

When we got to this part of the walk below - where the tide was so far in it was covering the side walk - one of the ladies had caught up with me and we had another chat. I found out she was from Malaysia. She was here helping her daughter who just had twins. She was a proud grandma and her English wasn't too bad. Her husband is still in Malaysia running the business but she is staying in Vancouver until January. She thinks Vancouver is very expensive but beautiful and safe. She says Malaysia is not very peaceful and there are many people that will rob you but it is a lot more affordable. You can afford to have a big house - she said. Anywho - it was interesting to have a chat with her. 

look at the water on the side walk!
