Scamperdoodle wants the camera

His highchairness

People ask me sometimes "What is Yuri's recent big accomplishment?" and I go quiet for a moment (because as any parent knows I'm still dwelling on the awesomeness of what was in his last diaper). I have to say that 3 recent events have happened which compete for WOW for me.
1. He strokes the cat, and the cat doesn't bite him. He has achieved something the grownups can't.
2. He sleeps 6-8 hours *sometimes*.
3. He is really really excited about sitting in his highchair and having mealtime.
Here's a picture of #3

Avo adventures

I just can't resist putting up this picture... we spent the next morning trying to scrub avo out of his eyebrows. Next day? Yam in the ears.

Tummy time

Sometimes one needs some motivation... how about flags and nudity?


Yuri likes to stick a thumb in his mouth and start talking... he's not yet comfy with the idea that I'm behind the camera, so he tends to scowl a bit, but is his first audio web appearance!

nose nose

So, for reasons unknown, we are talking a lot about noses. Whose nose, how many noses, Yuri has a nose nose, the nose knows... and so on.

It's hard to document these conversations, but here's an attempt

Chubby little emperor

Yuri likes eating, and has recently decided he doesn't like sleeping. He will fight his drooping eyelids, and keep talking... he's also getting really into smiling and giggling. Happy Yuri!

Tub Time!

Yuri seems to enjoy the tub... in fact, he's quite into it. We can't quite get the right lighting to really show off his kicking and laughing, but here's some funny poses.

7 Week checkup

We went in for the 7 week checkup on Monday. It was actually the 51 day checkup (you'll see why that's important in a moment.

The nurse took all his vitals and here's the run-down:
head circumference: 38.5 cm
height: 22 inches
weight: 10 lbs. 2 oz.

That's a lifetime average of one ounce per day. Wow!

After the weighing and measuring, Dr. Hamdani admired our Yuri's muscle tone and pronounced him 'delicious'. She also told us that we're perfect parents, leaving us to wonder about all of her other patients...
(Sadie's favourite: Yuri's howler monkey face)

After getting all of his booster shots, Yuri promptly turned bright red like a lobster, then fell asleep in his Papa's arms.
