Prairie Boy

Mom & Dad both thought I looked like a little farmer in my outfit today - especially with the hat.

Mommy thinks I look like a farmboy rapper in this picture :)

More Christmas

Oh Christmas Tree!

This is me & my Dad on Christmas morning. He just gave me my very first hockey stick!

My Mommy & Daddy.

New Shoes

Mommy bought me new shoes yesterday. I'm walking a lot now, but I didn't have any shoes that I could wear outside. Now I do! I had a lot of fun toddling around in the backyard this afternoon.

My Second Christmas

Last night we celebrated Christmas early with the Toews family.

Hmmmm... I wonder what I'll be getting for Christmas this year.

Honorary reindeer.

Check out my new ride.

Enough pictures mom, where's the food?

About two months ago, we posted a picture of Micah's cousin Noah. He has a blog of his own now. You can check it out by clicking on "Noah's Journey" on the right-hand side of this page.

My "Froggy" First Birthday Party

I'm one! We celebrated my special day on Sunday, Dec 11th - two days before my actual birthday on Dec 13th. Mommy invited friends and family and everything was decorated green, blue and froggy!

What do you mean, it's my birthday?

Green froggies floating in the swampy punch.

Blue frosted cupcakes with gummy frogs on top!

My first taste of birthday cake.... yum! Everyone sang Happy Birthday before I started eating. I listened nicely as they sang and then promptly burst into tears as soon as the song was over.

Birthday partied out.

King of the birthday party! My loyal subjects G (left) who is 13 months and S (right) who is only 6 days older than me!

My First Steps

Today I took the plunge and took my very first steps!

Holding onto Daddy while he gets me started...

Here I go!

I'm tired of performing. Is it bedtime yet?

Who me? I'm not getting into any trouble.

I just love posing for the camera...

Tomorrow I will be 11 months old! Only one more month until my birthday!

I love my nuk.

Well, it's official. I have a first word (besides "mama" & "dada"). I have learned how to say the word "yuck". Maybe this is my first word because I hear it when I'm about to put an unidentified object from the floor into my mouth, or when I'm headed towards the toilet brush in the bathroom. Either way, it's fun to say, and I've discovered that saying "yuck" after I spit some food out of my mouth just seems to feel right.

The other bit of news has to do with the red spots around my mouth. Mommy and I both have a contagious bacterial skin infection that we caught on our trip to Manitoba. Hopefully our antibiotics will heal us up quickly, because I'm getting very bored of staying at home!

My Trip to Manitoba

Mommy & I just got home from our trip to see all my relatives in Manitoba. I saw my Granny & Grandpa Harder, lots of Aunts & Uncles (even Great Aunts!) and ALL 8 of my cousins. I got to fly on the airplane with my Mommy. I was mostly a good boy and slept part of the trip, but being in a tight space for that long is no easy task for a big baby like me!

Here I am in Grandpa Harder's hot tub!

This is me with my Great Aunt Bertha, my cousins Kailyn & Josh, and my Auntie Nichole who is holding baby Noah.

These are my other Great Aunts, Hilda & Martha.

My cousins Olivia & Maddy.

My cousins Cassidy, Liam & Aidan.

Liam & I are only 5 months apart and already playing together so nicely!

My Cousin Noah

Noah was born September 21st and weighed less than 4 lbs. He was not expected to live, but he is now almost 6 weeks old. He is still tiny and gets his food through a tube because of his cleft lip and palate, but he is at home! He has a chromosome 12q deletion and breathes very fast. But God is a big God and he is answering our prayers for Noah!

Mr. Sleepy-Pants

After supper tonight I was SO tired. I stayed out too late at a party last night and didn't nap much today, so I was POOPED! I'm usually too hyper to cuddle with mom & dad but I just didn't have any more energy to play tonight.

In fact, I was so sleepy that mom & dad decided to fore-go the regular bath and just change my diaper and pj's for bed. I couldn't even muster up the energy to open my eyes while they changed me...

And here I am, fully changed & still sleeping...

Sweet dreams everyone!

Pictures from Today

Waking up from a nice long morning nap!

My new favourite toys are Daddy's drumsticks. They're great for hitting all sorts of things... So, don't get too close!

Here I am zoned in to the TV while Ellen is dancing...
