Daddy and Me, plus closeups

While Daddy was keeping me happy, Mommy got a hold of the camera.  Lots of pictures of Daddy and me.  Then Mommy was holding me on her lap; more pictures.  Later in the afternoon, since I am loathe to sleep, we went out to run some errands.  Mommy loves using our digital camera and was on a roll — closeups […]

Whee, two visitors came to snug me

What a day.  Worthy of two posts.  First, Aunt Kerren arrived.  Then Mommy’s friend Sonja from New Jersey joined us.  Sonja has two girls of her own (Eva & Sophia), who I will meet someday soon.  All day long people snugged me, especially Sonja, who held me on the glider.  She helped me to snooze, which […]

Hungry all morning, then Daddy watched me

I kept going to Mommy for more and more food this morning.  After I pigged out, I stayed with Daddy, who snugged me till I went to sleep.  Then he set me up in my “crack of the couch, three-pillow system.”  Two pillows are under me, and another is on my feet and body.  I find it […]

Cousin Barbara came to visit; the doodie incident

Cousin Barbara came to see me today.  Mommy, Barbara and I went for a stroll in the Park.  When I got hungry, Mommy fed me, but during the burping, I spit up much of my snack.  Then some hippies wearing crochet clothes came up to us and gave us crochet bracelets while they wished us […]

Did-It sent a card and gift; Mommy had lunch with BF ladies

Daddy’s team at Did-it Search Marketing all chipped in for a gift card to Buy Buy Baby. His team is the greatest. Here is the front of the card and here is the inside where everyone  signed. I’m so excited; now I can get more cute outfits. Or toys. Or diapers.

Mommy […]

Fiona the babysitter took care of me in the office

Daddy is in Canada, so Mommy had Fiona the babysitter take care of me and keep me calm while Mommy helped her clients.  Fiona took me for a roll in the Park in my carrier, which was fun.  Of course, I got crabby when I came back, as usual for now.

Mommy inteviewed a babysitter

When we were at the doctor’s office a week ago for my green poops, we saw an ad posted by a babysitter.  The lady was nice on the phone, so Mommy invited her to come by to meet us.  I think she is going to take care of me in the evenings when Mommy is seeing clients and Daddy is out of […]

One full weekend of being Kvetchina Crankmeistress

On Saturday, it rained and was foggy, so when I decided to be crabby all day, Daddy and Mommy had to try to keep me calm inside. On Sunday afternoon, the sky cleared up for a while, so Daddy and I went out shopping to give Mommy a break. We went to Whole Foods, but […]

My nickname is Miss Gasella Crabtree; Dr. says I’m a bit colicky

Most of the day I was kvetchy, and Mommy tried hard to make me calm, but nothing worked for long. Finally, she put me on my tummy on the big bed and I was crying, but then I settled down to have a little nap. Too bad she had to wake me up to bring […]

Holiday fun at Nana and Grandpa’s house

Before going out to Long Island for dinner at my grandparents’ house, Daddy took me for a stroll in the park while Mommy took a nap.  That calmed my fussies until I suddenly got hungry.  I told Daddy all the way home from the Park just how hungry I was, and he had to jog home so Mommy could feed me.  Then we […]

I like Mommy’s pillow; airing out with Daddy

Mommy took some pictures of me still napping in the bed after she got up from a nap with me.  Later in the evening, we aired out my rashy butt for the third night in a row.  That means I had to relax on my tummy with no diaper on and let things hang out in the […]

Took a nap in my crib

Mommy put me in my crib for a nap.  I don’t usually sleep there, but I was in the mood for a change, so I stayed in there for a while.  Mommy took some pictures while she was on the phone talking to Nanny Liz.  In the pictures, you can see my crib mobile.  Mommy didn’t know how […]

I weigh 8 pounds 2 ounces

No pictures today, but some good news. We went to see another pediatrician today to find out if she is good for me and also flexible on vaccines.  She seems like a caring and smart doctor.  Plus, she is nearby.  So we might switch.

The doctor told us we should try Desitin Original on my rashy ashy, because it […]

Resting on a red squishy pillow

While Daddy got ready to go to work this morning, I was resting the red squishy pillow. After resting for a few minutes…big surprise, I got some gas and started making faces. So Daddy decided he wanted to do a photo shoot. I took that opportunity to do my tai chi wriggling and make lots […]

Aunt Kerren came to visit us

I like it when Aunt Kerren comes to visit. She reminds me of Mommy, but she never feeds me like Mommy does. Of course, we took lots of pictures. We even had a bath for me, and it feels good in a way, except for the parts of me that stick out of the […]

Tried my first bottle of pumped milk AND tasted formula

Today was a big day.

Mommy had a long set of three sessions in the evening and had pumped some milk for me so Daddy and Nana could give it to me if I got hungry.  About two hours after Mommy left for the office, I got really hungry.  I sucked down the milk Mommy made […]

I slept through the night (almost)

Since I didn’t let Mommy and Daddy sleep long the night before last, last night I slept snugging with Mommy for 4 hours, and then, after my feeding and changing, I went back to sleep again for 3 hours. In the late morning, Daddy had to make a phone call, so I rested on his […]

Nana walked me though Central Park

I was tired and grumpy much of the day; yeasty diaper rashes are no fun.  To help me get my mind off of it, Daddy took me out in my car seat carrier. He had planned to take me to his office, but on the way there, he bumped into Nana.  Nana took me for a nice, long walk […]

Another doctor visit, Walked through the park, Napped in the crib

Mommy wanted to see another pediatrician for a second opinion.  The doctor was very nice and thorough.  She agreed that we are doing things to help the yeast go away.  Once I get rid of this thrush, I’m staying healthy.  Instead of taking the subway home, Mommmy and Daddy walked me home through Central Park.  I loved it because the paths are nice […]

Double doctor day

This weekend, Mommy freaked out because my yeast infection isn’t going away and it gave me a really bad case of diaper rash.  I think it really upset Mommy when the yeasty diaper rash was so sore I screamed when my diaper was changed and there was even a bit of blood.  Mommy called two doctors — our pediatrician and […]

First time on the Long Island Rail Road

Sundays are great — nice and lazy.  Today is different.  I get a bath (which makes sense, since I keep spitting up), but then the real excitement begins.  We head out with the car seat stroller (I love that stroller!), and we can’t find a cab.  We are in a rush, but I don’t know why until […]

I’m no fool on April Fool’s Day; Day of rest

After resting in my swing, I had some lunch. Then after lunch, we went out to run some errands with me in the stroller. I really love the stroller — it is so relaxing. I stayed asleep most of the trip. When I got back, I was still tired and Mommy was too, so we […]
