Babies, babies, babies

Aaaah! Guitar practice time. What was my dad thinking, giving them an amplifier! My eldest just discovered the joy of minor chords, ugh.

Yesterday baby Zed was 3 months old. I can't believe how quickly the time is flying by. He talks and coos and laughs, he thinks his big siblings are hilarious. When I let him grip my fingers, he can pull right up to standing from laying, stiff as a board. He can sit for a second or two, with his hands on his knees. He rolls 3/4 of the way over whenever he wants to nurse, sometimes he ends up on his tummy by accident. Even though he is number 5, it is all new again and just as exciting. He is just the light in all of our days. ( I have some pictures to post, but I can't find my upload cord for my camera!)

And yesterday, my nephew was born. He is the first baby, outside of my kids, in my hubby's family, so everyone is pretty thrilled. Brent's brother kept calling him while his wife was in labour, it was cute. He was 10lb 15 ounces and 23 inches long, he is huge! She had a cesarean, thank goodness. Congratulations guys, we are so very happy for you and can't wait to cuddle your sweet baby boy.

  1. Good night Irene! He's HUGE!!! My largest was 10, 10, delivered naturally. A little butterball turkey. But I don't remember him looking as big as your nephew!

  2. Goodness, those all those wrinkles and rolls! My biggest was only 6.2, and this cute lil' guy is TWICE the size of my 5.2 little guy! He's gorgeous; I'm sure he'll be an excellent playmate for Baby Zed.
