New Blog

I figured it might be annoying to some people that I send out pictures of Ian once a week (or more), so I thought instead of sending them to people that don't want them anyway, I would just post them to a blog and those that are interested can check it if they want. Besides - maybe I will actually keep a journal of his firsts and more this way.

Firsts this week:
1. Swimming at the indoor public (baby) pool with his friend Atticus. Ian was splashing like a maniac and L-O-V-E-D it. Except when he dipped his face in the water twice and scared himself. I had to call Grandpa Clay to tell him that Ian is getting ready for the "yake" this summer (and Grandpa told me a little story about letting Connor take his shoes, socks and pants off and wade into the water up to his knees and then encouraging him to take his shirt off and swim - THIS WEEK IN THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY- and I thought, note to self - never leave Ian alone with Grandpa).

2. Infant storytime at the SE Library - they sing songs and read stories and most of the kids are a little older but Ian still likes it a lot. He loves being with other kids and thinks his mother is very very boring.

3. Bananas in his rice cereal, which he still mananges to smear everywear because everytime I put a bib on him he tries to eat it instead of the food.

4. His second ear infection - poor baby - and his third type of antibiotic to try to clear it up. Doesn't sleep but he is still happy most of the time.

I think I've figured it out...
Dear Ian,
I think you are very clever and precocious to have your own blog before you go to Kindergarten.
You are about the cutest little boy in the world.
I'm sorry about your ear infections. I hope you are better soon and letting your Mom and Dad sleep all night.
Eat all that cereal, but not the bib and be sure to give Mommy a big sloppy kiss at the end.
Hugs and kisses to you and Mommy and Daddy...
Grandma Leonard
