So what does OALAHWI mean? It's an acronym used on the web boards I'm a part of that means "Out As Long As He Was In" and today is our little monkey's OALAHWI day. He is 40 weeks old (yup he was born on my due date, right on time). Here's how he's changed in the last 9 months.

One Month Old

Two Months Old

Three Months Old

Four Months Old

Five Months Old

Six Months Old

Seven Months Old

Eight Months Old

Nine Months Old

Can't believe it's 9 months already and just how grown up our little guy is getting.

The Glamourous Life Of A Mom

So this morning I was puked/spat up on twice while trying to get Munchkin into his chair for breakfast. One of which was more of a sneeze which managed to land on my face. Then as we're eating our avocado we proceed to sneeze...all over my leg, shirt and our chair. Hrm what other fluids will this day bring me?

Oh Sure

So this morning I wake up to babbling and squeals over the baby monitor. I look at the clock and see that it's 6:45. Oh great nice and early. What happened to my baby boy who could sleep until 9pm? The one who took 2 epic naps per day? The one who barely woke in the night and would go to bed at the drop of a hat. Is this the start of teeth coming in (finally).

Well wouldn't you know he had to prove me wrong. I'm downstairs drinking coffee and he's still upstairs asleep. I guess that was just a little playtime before drifting off again.

Oh and why is it I can't stop taking photos of him sleeping? Here's the latest one. I love how he's got a whole bed to spread out in yet that corner is the best.

So I find it cute that Munchkin now loves the Clearly Contacts commercial with Trevor Linden in it.

Why I find this cute is he is one of my top 3 favourite/good looking guys plus my favourite hockey player. Guess Munchkin has more of my genes then I thought. Wonder if you can fit Linden on the back of an infant size jersey?

I hate when our little Monkey has to go for his shots. There he is doing so good waiting to see the doctor, entertaining the people in the waiting room and overall doing great even thought it's getting dangerously close to nap time. Then you get weighted, measured, checked out, etc and everything is hunky dorie! But it's the look they give you of knowing that something is going to happen...

"Hrm something's not right here mom."

"I don't like the way you're holding me."

"Why is the doctor getting so close."

"Why are you saying everything is going to be okay?"


"*sobbing, crying, screaming*"

Then as quick as it started it's over and he's back to himself but I'll getting over the whole ordeal of watching him go through it all. Thank goodness our next set don't happen until he's 1 year old!

Light At The End

So I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel which is the cold our little Monkey has been suffering through. I thought it was bad getting sick while pregnant or breastfeeding as you can't take anything but seeing our little guy go through it not being able to clear out his nose is 10 times worse. Add a hacking cough, lack of eating and sleeping and you've got one poor little boy and one worried mommy. But with the help of a nasal aspirator, cool mist humidifier and towel under the mattress we've worked our way through the worst of it it seems.

Now we're learning to be on the move! Looks like we'd better start breaking out the outlet covers soon!

The Epic Nap

I couldn't believe it. Yesterday our little monkey went upstairs for a nap at 10:10 and didn't wake up until 2:30! Yes that's right an almost 4 hour nap! I think I must have check in on him 2-3 times just to make sure he was still breathing. Here's what I found one time though.

Some kids sniff glue...mine sniffs blanket.
