Little Panda Bear

Our sweet Cove is already 3-months old and 17-pounds on the button! We have no idea where this big baby came from, amazing really since Morgan is the complete opposite with such a tiny frame and not an ounce of chub on the girl. She had swimming lessons this morning and is like a turtle on her back- an incredibly awkward munchkin, arms and legs thrashing about. The monkey likes to be in control, so I'm thinking this is a metaphor for her stubbornness. She just needs to let go and relax.

These past few weeks have been kind of nuts- I think its sunk in that Cove isn't a 'rent-a-baby' and will be sticking around. This is obviously cramping Morgan's style as she is beginning to act out for attention all the time, meltdown central. Not to mention a touch of terrible 2's...poor nugget. We're doing everything in her our power to give her the attention she needs, but somedays its hard like when Brydon works 12-16 hours and its just the three of us. Good thing Cove goes to bed at 7 bells on the dot. Morgan is a 9pm'er which actually works out nicely, since those last couple hours we can just focus on her.

Brydon's mom took her to the lake for the weekend, so she could get outside, have Nana all to herself and enjoy plenty of fresh air. I miss her, but its also nice to have some time with just Cove. Here are his latest pics. They're similar to the others but this will make it easy and fun to see how he's changed as the months fly by.

He reminds me of a little panda bear when he smiles.

Yummy hands.

I love how agile babies' feet are,
he's always fanning out his toes. Its so cute.

Auntie Erin got him this sweet itty-bitty owl
from the farmer's market in Banff.

His eyes just melt me.

Tuckered out from all those pictures!

I've been missing Morgan, so I took a few snaps of her
room and the things that remind me of her.

She is obsessed with Tinkerbell. A few nights ago we were laying in bed and she said, "Ok, mommy, you trust daddy and daddy, you trust mommy. Trust...and pixie dust!" We could barely believe our ears, she's only 2 and coming up with this stuff.
It was pretty freakin adorable.

Piggy-bank castle from Nana. Morgan loves it.

I want a pair!

Thought this little vase from Ikea looked so pretty in this light.

Blankets, blankets, blankets everywhere. A sure sign of
a darling little baby and toddler in the home.
Wouldn't change it for the world.
The furniture stays warm too. :)

  1. Cove is such a chubby bubby! I love it! I'm so looking forward to seeing you all on Friday. I was really curious as to how Morgan has been handling everything. Poor little honey...It will get better though. She is such a loving big sister and I'm sure she just needs a bit more time to get used to the change.
