Busy Week!!

Hi, Wyatt here, and I had a busy week. Take a look!


First I played with my girlfriends. It was a lot of fun but a little frustrating because they are all on the move and I haven't quite figured that out!









The the weather finally decided to warm up so I went for my first stroller ride! I've been wondering what that thing was. It was great, I enjoyed the crisp spring air and watching Maggie running around.








Then we celebrated Uncles Charles and Nick's 21st birthday! It was a good time, the whole family went out to eat and Uncle Nick got to try his VERY FIRST sip of beer! :)
With such a busy life I have to rest when I can, here I am relaxing in the living room, and catching some zzz's at work (don't tell my boss!)




After I was all caught up on sleep, I played with this new toy that Mom made me. It's kinda crazy and makes a loud crinkly noise, but I know she had good intentions for something that would keep me occupied.


Maggie got a new toy too! It's a squeaky fish, she was pretty sad when I took it away from her though.



So I thought I better be nice and give her some of my toys to play with. After all, she is a lot bigger then me.



Maggie is a good big sister though and she let us play together with the toys!




And to top it all off I had swim lessons again this week! No pictures to share though because my swim trunks don't have any pockets for a camera. I had a blast though, I can even go under water! Well I hear Mom coming to get me ready for bed. Maybe I'll be nice tonight and sleep...but I wouldn't count on it :) Goodnight everyone!

A good dog is hard to find

This is a funny article about an obviously well trained seeing eye dog

Good Dogs

``We will not have him put down. Lucky is basically a damn good guide dog,'' Ernst Gerber, a dog trainer from Wuppertal told reporters. ``He just needs a little brush-up on some elementary skills, that's all.''
Gerber admitted to the press conference that Lucky, a German shepherd guide-dog for the blind, had so far been responsible for the deaths of all four of his previous owners. ``I admit it's not an impressive record on paper. He led his first owner in front of a bus, and the second off the end of a pier. He actually pushed his third owner off a railway platform just as the Cologne to Frankfurt express was approaching and he walked his fourth owner into heavy traffic, before abandoning him and running away to safety. But, apart from epileptic fits, he has a lovely temperament. And guide dogs are difficult to train these days.''
Asked if Lucky's fifth owner would be told about his previous record, Gerber replied: ``No. It would make them nervous, and would make Lucky nervous. And when Lucky gets nervous he's liable to do something silly.''

I guess it's time to get a comb for him.

Vaccines

I'm not out to be an activist here, but this is something that hits my heart.
Vaccines are such an easy way to save a child's life by protecting them from those diseases out there that we commonly vaccinate against. However there are many countries and children that do not have access to these vaccines or the money for them. The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI) is an orginization that gets these vaccines to these kids, and saves lives. If you are interested in what they do check it out here

http://www.gavialliance.org/

Also, if you are interested in donating to a wonderful cause, you can do so here

http://everychild.gavialliance.org/invest_now/donate.aspx

Their website at least deserves a look, just to see what they are out there doing and what we can do to help.

P.S. TGIF!!!

Hail to the cheif

And we all know who the chief is. That would be Wyatt, because he certainly dictates how and when we are going to do anything! Well today I was invited for a girls night out, drinks, dancing, fun - (apparently this is something that people without kids like to do on the weekends). So I am excited about the idea of putting on a clean shirt tomorrow and catching up with some friends. In this conversation about going out though I quickly became aware that I am indeed a Mom. The conversation went as follows:

"blah, blah drinks?"

"yes, sounds good, when and where?"

"how about 10 or 11?"

me: "a.m.????"

Now any other 20-something would have never thought that a 10 o'clock invitation for drinks would ever mean 10 am, but in this new life of mine, 10 p.m is when I'm finally crashing in to bed after a long day, not getting dressed up and going out. So regardless that I am going to be up past my bedtime :) I am looking forward to my first time out since before I was pregnant. However I am not looking forward to Saturday morning when Wyatt still wants to wake up at 7, and I want to sleep until 10a.m, and then, as previously invited to do so, have a drink :)

The Simple Things

So if you have read even one of our previous posts, you have probably realized that we love our dogs. Well now we know that Wyatt does too. Here is a video of him cracking up at us throwing Maggie's ball for her.

Well, after watching Maggie do it for months, Wyatt has now learned to sit! Here is a picture of the proud teacher and her student showing off their skills.

Change is in the air

If I could freeze time, at this point in Wyatt's life, I would. As I tucked him into bed tonight, he looked so big. It feels as if the last week has aged Wyatt by months, he is changing and growing, and I'm not sure that I am ready to let him grow up. Yesterday I held him for the first time, today he turned into a boy and tomorrow he is moving out...that's how it feels. I can't believe how much only 5 months has changed him, I am so proud of him, but why did he have to cram all these milestones into one week! This past week Wyatt started eating solid food as part of his everyday routine. Exciting yes, but if you have ever nursed a child you know how special that time is, and what a great bond it creates. And to realize that every meal that is now solid foods means one less time a day I nurse him, is a little sad. My little boy has also decided now he wants to sit up all by himself, no practice, just bam, he can do it! So with his new sitting capabilities, he sat in a high, chair, and a shopping cart! These aren't things that babies do! He is also on the verge of rolling from his back to his front, and he moves all over the place to get his toys! I never realized, even though everyone told me, how fast time would actually fly by! My favorite thing by far though, is that he seems to have a whole new level of awareness. Now when I read him a book, he turns and looks at me talking, and when we look in the mirror and I talk to him, he turns and looks at me. He has connected that that voice that was just coming out of nowhere before, is actually coming from Mom. It is amazing how fast they learn, and what an awesome expierience to see those lights flip on inside his head everyday, and be able to expierience all of his "firsts".

I know there is nothing I can do to slow time down, so for now I cherish every moment.

And just to add another bit of mush to this already mushy blog :).. Today Justin and I celebrated our five year anniversary. Five years and one day ago, I would have never imagined that I would spend the rest of my life with him and have a wonderful family together. But five years ago, when I looked into his eyes as his new girlfriend, I had no doubt, that he was the one I would grow old with. Thank you Justin for everything, and I look forward to the many wonderful years to come!
