Ian Then and Now

The weeks have taken their heavy toll on our poor lad. Oh, sure. Once he was young and full of promise. Take a look at Ian on June 21, 2010 (bottom left): he boasts "I'm number one! I'm king of the world!!!"

But then came the hard times. Times of tummy ache, days with no poopies, and nights with no-can-sleepy have reduced our little guy to a hollow shell of the baby he used to be. On July 28th, 2010 (bottom right), he is pale, gaunt, and careworn, but perhaps a little wiser. He's still number one, but sometimes he feels like number two.

More Pictures from Late August

How about a quick update? I have so many pictures that I haven't used, so here are a few from late August, starting on Tuesday, August 24th.

And a couple from Saturday, August 28th. Ian is around 10 weeks old in these pictures.

Our Boy in Blue

Everyone thinks their baby is the cutest, but they can't all be the cutest. That's just logic. Still, someone's baby IS actually the cutest, and I think we all secretly know who that baby is.


Who's a very brave boy? My little guy, that's who! Ian recently had his two month doctor's appointment. We learned that he is 25 inches long and nearly 14 pounds. That's a full one stone!

Ian's not only over the 90% percentile in height, he's over the 90% percentile in bravery! Check out our plucky little guy as he toughs out his first inoculations.


Round one: Look how stoically Ian takes his yucky medicine!

Round Two: Needles? I hate those things!

Round Three: MORE needles?
At least Mommy is there for comfort. I don't know what Daddy is doing, but it's not helping.

Not long afterward, we're on our way home. Maybe it was all a bad dream.
