Happy 8 months!

Baby boy you are 8 months old! 

I can hardly believe it :( I truly feel like you were just born! 

You are 20lbs and in size 4 diapers haha you are a big boy!! 

You are crawling like crazy and lift yourself to stand no problem! 

You are just the sweetest baby! You do so well with our busy family! We are always out and about and you just love it! 

You love the bath and you love to eat! 

You feed yourself finger food and eat pretty much everything these days. 

You are still breastfeeding but we are slowly trying to daytime wean you. As its back to work in 3.5 months! Boo! :( 

You enjoy playing with big brother. Big brother is your biggest fan. He's always cheering you on and gets very excited when you learn something new. The bond you guys already have melts my heart! 

This weekend you had a few firsts.

First time going to the movies Ha! You did great! Well,  you were sleeping for most the movie but when you woke up you watched the movie no problem! 

We also went to Niagara Falls this weekend. 

We had lunch at the Rainforest cafe which was fun. You loved seeing the animals and kept screaming at the elephants hah! Which has me thinking that we will do a jungle themed birthday for you! Yes I'm already planning your first  birthday! Sigh. 

Super fun weekend! And a very happy 8 month birthday boy :)

Just some weekend fun!

Fun at the the mall!

Shopping for baby K.

Some clothes and back to school items haha sounds funny but I keep calling daycare school.

Today at the mall Mickey and Minnie were there! So we stood in line to take pictures.

Kristian fell asleep while we were in line and I had to wake him up to meet Mickey. He was in a fog haha so wasn't too impressed.

Kris has been sleeping soooo much better lately. I'm soo happy about that!

His appetite is getting bigger too. I need to make even more food these days. This week I gave him a mix of food I made and jarred baby food too.

The last couple days I took him out the whole day from morning to night. I must say I am impressed with my little man. He is soo good for his mama. I'm able to go out and about with no problems. Love my little boy!

Today we are hitting the zoo! And today he is 9 months! another post to come later!

My sweet boy is growing up!

Baby K is almost 9 months old. The past week/ weekend I've seen soo many more changes in him.

He now claps and bounces when he hears music which is adorable!

He is gaining more strength and lifts off his toys to climb on them. He isn't crawling yet, but slithers and goes backwards and side to side haha.

He loves playing with toy balls throwing them and getting them back.
He loves playing in his playpen with all his toys. (great for me too, I can cook or do dishes as he plays ;)

He is starting to eat mum mums (baby crackers) alone! This is great for me too because he stays entertained with it!Ha!

He is eating a variety of foods these days. Tomorrow I have a new recipe I want to try out. Chicken and carrots with olive oil and onions! Delish! Hahaha

We are planning for our trip that's coming up! I have a huge list of what to bring! Eek! But I'm soo excited to see baby K play on the beach!

Pool time!

The weather here is great! Hot hot hot!

Today we went to my Aunts house to cool down and go for a swim!!

The kids had a great time!

During this nice weather I'm sure many parents are taking their kids for a swims... Water safety is soooo important!!! As adults and with kids in the water we always need to be in the water with them! It only takes a second for something to happen.

When I was about 4 I was in my uncle's pool when I slipped into the deep end. I couldn't swim. My dad was on the deck above and saw that I went under and jumped right in to get me... I was fine, if he wasn't close by and watching it could have ended much differently. I know first hand how all it takes is a second to go under.

So stay safe!!!!!! Floaties for all kids and adults in the water too!

Wednesday a couple friends and I are taking a CPR course. Never do I want to be in a situation to use it, but I will feel much better to know what to do in any situation that I would need to use it!

Baby food for the week!

Yesterday we went to visit the doctor. I've been a little concerned since Kristian has been nursing less and doesn't drink much water. I try giving him a bottle or sippy cup of water but he will just play and spit it out!

The doctor said not to worry and he will get what he needs from solids. He suggested I give each food group twice a day. So today we will start our new menu.

I bought the jars of meat purée instead of making it. I made it once and so far I rather buy that. I do give small pieces of our cooked meat when I make it too.

I made lots of fruits and veggies today!

Apple and carrots
Butternut squash and pears
And blueberries!

Kris is also loving apple cinnamon oatmeal!

Food for the week!

Did my baby poop?

These are the things that worry me these days haha. I'm now always making sure my little one is ok. Did he poop today? Is he eating and drinking enough? Did he sleep enough? Is he in pain!? All concerned mommy questions!

My little guy has been teething, his first tooth is making it's way out! Even though he was never been the greatest at sleep, teething has him up sooo much at night!

Yesterday wasn't too bad, but the night before he was up every hour!

He has been pretty cranky too, so I'm making sure he gets all his naps in during the day.

Weaning off Breastfeeding and sleep training is all on hold for now.

Today we went out to buy him some new toys. ;) hope it helps him feel better.

Baby Received his First Sacrament

Yesterday was Kristian's Baptism! We are so happy and feel so blessed to have great family and friends that shared this special day with us.

My sister and her husband became Kristian's Godparents. This is the first step for Kristian in leading his life of Faith.

Kristian Slept the whole ceremony haha! 

He cried when he got baptized... but only because he was sleeping and he felt me putting him down hahaha!

The ceremony was beautiful and Kristian became a member of our church. The Priest talked about living life like a child... fully enjoying every moment. As we get older the stresses of life keep us from fully enjoying ourselves, this happens to us all the time. This is something I really want to try and live by everyday. Being happy and loving and fully enjoying our days with family and friends. Being excited for the small things, just like children are.

After the ceremony we celebrated at a restaurant with family and friends. We had a great time! The day was perfect!

Canada day long weekend fun!

I wish the blogger app was a little more advanced, like being able to place pictures where I want them not just below all the text. Oh well!

This weekend was Canada day long weekend!!

It was also the Euro cup finale! Spain won! We were cheering for both teams but really wanted Italy to win! So we were also sad!

We had a fun weekend and the weather was beautiful.

This week it will be really hot and humid!!

We have a busy busy week planned as I have a lot to organize for baby K's baptism celebration this weekend!!!
