Spring Fever

Para has it. She has me up at night almost as often as Iain. Since the time change, Iain has been taking longer and longer to get to sleep at night. However, he is also sleeping through the night more often so I’ll take the later bedtimes! Checkers, the cat, is tearing around the house like a mad thing. Our other ‘old lady’, 15 year old Tobi, is out and about to visit us more and more despite the fact that she had surgery two weeks ago (a cyst which was too close to her eye and some dental work).

Iain got his feet wet walking in puddles earlier in the month and I simply could not resist these.

Historically, Iain has not liked hard soled shoes AT ALL. Therefore, he has been wearing Robeez or Bobunz, heavily insulated children’s boots from MEC covered by Stonz slip-ons when we go outdoors (hmm, bit of baby wear advertising there…). Anyways, when we had a spring melt a couple of weeks ago (followed by winter), Iain had to visit every puddle he could find and, for the first time, his feet were a bit wet when we came inside. I thought these rubber boots were adorable and bought them big so that I could use wool socks inside them as it might be getting more Spring-like around here but it’s pretty cold still.

To my surprise and glee, Iain loves his boots! Here is a video of Iain wearing hard soled boots for the very first time.

Isn’t he pleased with himself? He is even saying ‘boots’! I love how he is sticking off his tummy and just strutting around!

And, the picture you’ve all been waiting for. The mommy-to-be at week 25 (last Thursday evening):

And with the proud big brother.

It’s interesting. I find that Iain looks like a very big boy when I take pictures of him by himself. However, when he is in a picture with either myself or DH, all of a sudden he looks so wee again. He is really growing up too fast.

Oh, don't you look fabulous! Are you going to find out if it's a boy or girl before the delivery?

Too cute, both of you. My kids loved watching him strut around =) If you think he looks big now, just wait till you have the little one in your arms and he comes running at you. I remember thinking my 21 month old looked like a giant lumbering toward me compared to the newborn in my arms. I was a little scared. lol
