Go Jays Go!!

We went to the Jays game a few days ago with Brett, Grandma and Grandpa. They lost 5-4 (stink!) to the Phillies, but it was still a fun day.

I jumped in first and it was cold … Continue reading »

Blake’s new thing is to sleep on his belly with everything in his crib underneath him. In this pic, Blake is sleeping on a book, a stuffed lamb and a quilt. I guess he thinks it’s comfortable – or maybe comforting? Sweet dreams, little sweet heart.

A Day at the Park

We are still jet lagging in a big way at our house.  Blake is getting lots of sleep, but he is sleeping in four large naps with a few hours between each.  Two big naps through the day and two big naps in the night.  The toughest awake time is 12 – 2:30 at night.  … Continue reading »
