Well...I finally have a chance to get around to Part 2 of my first visit to Connecticut. (And right before I head back up there again for my Auntie's Wedding Shower.)

This is a video of a new game that I enjoy playing....Mom or Dad will brush a towel or tissue against my nose, and I giggle uproariously.
I do a lot of cooing and "chatting" in the video, too.
Really, I enjoy the game...but I do it mostly for them.

In an attempt to help the environment around us, and to help the environment of Mom and Dad's apartment smell less like diapers, Mom and Dad have started the transition to "G Diapers"
They are basically a different type of diaper. They are plastic-free, and flushable. They also decompose in about 50-100 days, as opposed to the billion years (or so) that it takes for regular diapers to decompose. They consist of 3 layers: The outer cloth layer, an inner plastic liner, and the interior flushable diaper refills. I am only a baby, and can't explain it nearly as well as the folks at G Diaper can. Visit www.gdiapers.com to learn more...it's SUPER cool!
This, of course, may turn out to be an unmitigated disaster...but if it works, we will become another progressive family that is being a little kinder to the environment.

I don't own any real St. Patty's Day garb just yet. (Mom and Dad didn't find anything St. Patty's Day related that was cute enough for me to wear)
Or maybe I was exhausted, and Dad INSISTED that he just HAD to get a picture of my little green outfit. ::sigh:: Parents....
I hope you all have a great day...drive safe, and drink one for me!
Don't worry...as soon as I'm able, I'll be at an Irish pub with my Dad, more than likely wearing some form of Leprechaun costume.
Because he's a dork.

I have started sucking my thumb. LOTS of babies do it, so please don't give me a hard time about it.
Also, my head control is pretty amazing these days, if I DO say so myself. Not only that, but with the help of mom and dad, I am able to do a decent job of supporting my weight when they help me. This is a game we call "Tall Baby"
Also, I went to my 2 month doctor's appointment. She told Mom & Dad that I am doing well. I am 24 inches long (Tall baby ISN'T just a game we play!) and I weigh 12 lbs 10 Ounces.
I am NOT a small baby.
The doctor (Well, technically a "Nurse Practitioner") went over a bunch of facts and figures, in regards to what percentiles I fall in for both height and weight. My numbers were, obviously, impressive, but not yet in the range of "Exceptional."
I am working on this discrepancy as we speak.

Dad has set up video chat with our little webcam here. Today, we had our first successful broadcast to my Auntie Stephanie, and my Grandma....I was able to see and hear them perfectly, and they were able to see me getting fussy and crabby right before I needed to get fed.
SO...if you are a far-flung family member or friend, and you'd like to webchat with me for a bit...let me know!!

This is Norma. You may have seen her in an earlier photo on my blog, or if you are one of the lucky 6 people on the planet, you have actually met her. She is abnormally intelligent, which is sometimes helpful, but other times poses some problems.
She also tends to sleep ANYWHERE. And by anywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE!
(As I type this, she is next to me swiping at an emory board that my mom left out...she is quite intent on getting that thing lost under the couch)
The picture above is what we walked in on the other day. That's MY Boppy she is sleeping in. On the Boppy website, the Boppy is described as "an award winning baby nursing pillow ...babies also LOVE it for tummy time, and learning to sit up!"
No where does it mention this being a proper place for a cat to nap.
This is not yet war...but we are edging close towards it. Watch yourself, Norma...

So....you may have seen in an earlier blog entry that Mom and Dad have been pretty consistent with tummy time. This is essentially a way to help me strengthen my neck muscles, and get coordinated enough to hold my head up without someone having to support my head all the time.
