Throw Hair Away

The other day, Benjamin was perusing in the toilet room in our bathroom. Naturally, because it is at eye-level, he came across the trashcan and its contents. In it, he found a good bit of my hair (because the amount of hair that falls from my head is out of control). He pointed at it, and Norm says "that's Mami's hair. Mami throws her hair away".

Then Benji walked off.

I kept doing what I was doing and Norm kept doing what he was doing. Next thing we knew, Benji came back into the bathroom with Nico's hairbrush in his hand. He walked straight to the trashcan, leaned over it and started combing his hair with a downward motion as he said "Pepe throw away hair.... like Mami"

I can't make this stuff up. Child is crazy.

Because We Can

Because we can, we go to the market on Saturday mornings. It is fantastic.

We wake up, have breakfast, and head on out the door with no real agenda or plan. We had a great time downtown yesterday!

There is a permanent stage down by the river and there was music playing when we got there, so Benji got up on the stage and danced:

Then he asked Daddy Norm to get up on the stage and dance too!

Later we found the splash - which is really just a shoot of water straight up in the air...

Before heading out we found a shady spot so Nico could eat!

Month 3 (and 1 and 2)

Well months 1 and 2 seem like they flew by, even though some days (and some hours) were never ending. Nico turns three months old today and we can officially say that we have survived the Fourth Trimester - hooray! go us!

The first couple of months were a bit challenging as we learned how to cope with Nico's reflux, his spitting up, and his gassiness, his congestion and of course nursing. But we managed and here we are!

At three months he is pretty much sleeping through the night from about 8:30pm all the way through 5:30am! That's really the only time of the day that he keeps consistent because during the day we still just go with the flow. Sometimes he takes a three hour nap and eats every 4 hours and other times he eats every 2.

He loves to have conversations! He coos and laughs! He certainly smiles when he hears our voices and see our faces. He is such a good sport when it comes to playing with Benjamin (or better yet, when it comes to Benjamin playing with him). Benji brings him cars, and brings him his pacie, his rattle and even sits next to him and has "conversations" with Nico. Our hearts melt.

He loves tummy time and sometimes even naps on his belly (it apparently is good for the reflux and to let the farts out...)

Here are the pictures from One Month:
