Granada Park

He didn't want to smile , but here are some pictures from the park a couple blocks from our house.  



Niko got treated to a shopping spree today at Target and Toys R Us.  We bought him all kinds of fun stuff and the only thing he really cared about was the slinky.  He thought it was the coolest thing since baby food.

The Morning Routine

Niko and I have a a morning routine, but it pretty much stops there.  He definitely isn't the baby that goes down for a nap at exactly the same time every day or goes to bed at the same time every night.  Ever since he was a newborn, he couldn't really follow a schedule.  I never really tried too hard either.  He goes to sleep when he's tired and he eats when he's hungry...that's what I do so he might as well also.   =)  Nothing in our lives is scheduled and every day is totally different.
Anyway, our morning routine is: wake up around 6:30 or 7 am, play for a little while, Niko eats mashed banana and oatmeal, play some more, Niko starts rubbing his eyes around 8, and WE go back to sleep until 10.  Then we go for a walk.  Perfect morning.

Here is the gorgeous view from our room in Palm Springs and us sharing a nice big bed.  Too bad it isn't big enough for Daddy too. =(


Niko's Water Park.

For a 1/2 birthday present, Nino bought Niko this water thing.  I don't really know what it is, but it has a slide, a cave, a dolphin to sit on, a ring stacker, and it shoots water all over the place.  It's pretty amazing and hopefully Niko will get more out of it than a blow up pool.  We spent an hour blowing the darn thing up only to find out that the water was way too cold for the little man.  Another day...


Niko's Godmother

I would say we chose a pretty perfect Godmother for Niko...don't you think?  Snuggie and Wii Fit...who could ask for more?

Niko's First Swim!

Niko went swimming today for the first time in Amanda's pool.  He loved splashing and kicking and watching Amanda float by on her raft.  He was extra smiley to her to make up for his peeing on her before we got in the pool.  It's a sign of his love. =)


Visit to Bapa Al's.

Today, while we were visiting Bapa Al, Niko and I had a little photo shoot outside.  He gets so happy when we go outside!
