bad blogger

Hi All,  I’ve been horribly neglectful of this blog in the last little while (been updating my other blog quite a bit) and want to rectify that.  My wife does not want pictures of the little man put up–which kind of dampered my enthusiasm–but now I have a new solution, suggested by a colleague.  Hence I now present, the G-man!

The new G-man!

The new G-man!

Anyhoo, he is doing alright, crawling, pulling himself up, and is generally a nuisance–but a healthy nuisance.  Can’t complain.

The Scream!

Now the little guy has learned how to scream! He screams when we take something away from him, when he’s particularly hungry, or when he just feels like it.

Any suggestions on how to deal with this??

Baby Crawling

The little guy is now just past 6 months old and seems to be moving more and more.  Right now he is able to spin around in circles on his tummy, and flip back and forth.  I’m not sure how much time we have until he is able to crawl forward–but I do know that I am not mentally ready!  I mean, that will change the whole game!

Until that happens we are closely monitoring the situation (sounds very  aloof doesn’t it).  We are hoping he can crawl sooner than later, but at the same time know that our little guy will be will never be same once he starts tearing around the house.  Time goes too fast sometimes.

I had to change the G-man’s diaper today–the first time since he has really been eating the rice and oatmeal cereal.  Wow!  My wife warned me about this, but I don’t think I was prepared.  Just wow.

Bachelor Days

My wife and the little guy are away visiting the Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. in Southwestern Ontario for the week.  I’m excited to have some time on my own to get work done both here at home and at the office.  Bachelor life again–without the wild parties.  At least I’ll have sole control of the TV!  

 But it is only night one, and I’m already missing them.  I’ve never been this far from the baby, and it’s been years since I’ve been away a whole week from my wife.  We’ll see how this goes.

Spring is around the corner…

Although it doesn’t feel like it in Ottawa.  I’m tired and have a cold of some sort, my wife is tired and has a cold, and the little guy has a cold–not sure if he’s tired.   I can’t wait until the snow is melted away. 

 They say that living in a northern climate makes you appreciate the spring that much more–I believe it.  Especially as a new father.

one hand typing again–i’m doing the morning shift with the little guy.  he seems content to watch me type while i’m playing neil young in the background.  the morning times are nice because he’s usually in a good mood, and it’s pretty quiet.  i think he’s getting used to watching sports hilights and hanging in the exersaucer.  soon i will have go to work.  i’ll miss the little guy while i face the day armed with a pc surrounded by 4 cubicle walls.
