10 months old today!

Most of the pictures I tried to take for this post were too blurry, which is a fitting testament to August's new non-stop movement.

We've reached double digits! Eeeep. It's been said a zillion times how fast time goes with babies but it's only because it's so bittersweetly true. They learn and grow and change so quickly that it's hard for our hearts and minds (and uh, bodies!) to keep up. Who's this little guy crawling, walking while holding on to things, opening up the kitchen cupboards, flirting with pretty ladies and calling us mama and dada?

Augie is so much fun. Lots of big smiles, giggles, torrential drool and excitement for pretty much everything (ok, except for diaper changes and hats). When I have more time, I'll post a list of stuff Augie's really into, for both the grandparents and posterity.

get well soon, papa

My dad, Augie's Papa Max, has been in the hospital and not feeling well recently. We're sending him lots of love and feel better wishes. We all can't wait to see you soon xo

Here we are in the fresh air and wild woods of Lynn Valley, just a quick drive from our house. We go for a hike there every week and Augie conks out almost every time. On th top of August's current faves list: trees, birds, and being outside.

it ain't easy being green

Rough day for Augie with all this growing, crawling, learning, changing and teething. Poor babe is just out of sorts. He had lunch with Mama's friend Magda, went for a walk, spied some birdies and trees, played with lots of toys and had great, long naps but he's still feeling kinda grumpy.

Last night he discovered he could stand up in his crib at night and say 'mamamamama' over and over til his folks come in and gather him up in their arms for late night snuggles. He thinks that's pretty cool.

Standing in his crib. Fave thing du jour.

9 month photobooth

We heard about this old b&w booth in North Van and were super psyched to go track it down but they'd just replaced it with a new colour one. Still fun, though. The last frame is my fave.
