I've got a bunch of those Playskool Go-Bots for him. Just my luck he'll hate Transformers and like some of that Japansese garbage where all they do is scream and fight with cards.

Anyway, the wife, I and the baby are finally home. I'm slowly catching up on things, but it will probably take me a few days to get up to speed.

Before I forget, I also wanted to thank everyone for their kind words. It means a lot... especially after you've been up all night with a screaming baby thinking wtf have I gotten myself into. :wink:

I'm glad everyone is home and healthy. As for what you have got yourself into, I would say a lot of work and responsibility, but also a lot of love and joy too.

I think the trick is breast feeding, no bottles for the first few months because it isn't natural... That should get you off the responsible party list for a little while. :D

No, that won't work. Ian didn't even use milk on his cereal when we were kids and I hear tell Ian can use sippy cups now.

We took Ryan for his two week doctor's appointment on Friday. He's back up to his birth weight (and then some) and has grown an inch.

I also like the Hippo bath towel.

That's one of the best things of being a parent: dressing your kids up in funny outfits.

It starts to backfire on us, about age 13, so I'm told.

My 4 year old is starting to actually like Hawaiian Shirts and going barefoot. Not a great combo in February in Canada. :lol:

Yoav has exactly the same activity center as in the first picture. he loves it.
mmm....those giraffe feet are yummy...he loves to eat them!

@Ian, FYI:
i felt really stupid when i discovered, after more than 3 months he's been using it, that the purple elephent has a sort of 'rewind' in the cord that holds it, if you pull it down then it pulls itself back up while vibrating! really neat!

The Boy's lookin great Ian, growin like a weed :D. It was kinda neat when we noticed my little Niece start to focus on things, then much later when I was teasing her on a car trip and she said "LEAVE ME ALONE" pretty clearly and she was mostly still baby talking at that point. My Step sister and I just looked at each other amased and I left the lil bugger alone for a while :o
She's about 10 now. #-o

Ryan is almost 3 months old now. We took him to see EP3 last week but he slept through the entire thing. He wasn't too happy with his Wookie shirt either.
