Tandem Skydivers?

So we got a baby carrier for Livi's many upcoming adventures and we tested it out today...looks like Dad and Liv might just go for a tandem skydive! Either way, she loves it and should make for lots of mobile fun this summer! Here's hoping for some good weather so we can use it!

Fathers Day

My very first official Fathers Day. Last year we called it Fathers Day but she wasn't physically here yet. But now she is. And I'm her Dad.

The day before was more of a "Daddy-Daughter Day". Sam had her first wedding since Livi was born so I was on deck to take care of her for the day myself. It couldn't have gone any better. For the first time ever, she drank an entire bottle of formula. And then half an hour later she drank another one. We played with her toys together and she sang along as I played guitar. We also watched the Whitecaps beat Philadelphia together. Later at night, she ate her whole bowl of rice cereal without making too much of a mess. Then at around 8:30 I changed her into her pajamas and fed her a bottle of breast milk. She fell asleep before it was done and I put her to bed. She wouldn't wake up at all. A wonderful day.

Sam came home late at home to a sleeping family.It was a wonderful Fathers Day and my Sam got me a great present. A Ryan Kesler Canucks jersey. I can't wait to wear it.

Summertime Livin'

It's almost summer and Livi is almost 6 months old. The weather for Livi's first summer has been off and on here in Vancouver. Most of the spring was full of rain but in the last 2 weeks the temp has risen and the sun has come out pretty much every day. We've been spending lots of time outside taking Liv to lots of different places in our wonderful city. She's had a few trips downtown walking around busy Robson Street, through trendy Yaletown and seeing old Gastown. We've brought her to the Aquarium in Stanley Park and we plan to spend a day in the park soon too. We'll keep up with the pictures as much as we can and post as often as possible.

Go Canucks Go!!

Making a Mess

For the last week, we've been feeding Livi rice cereal with a spoon. She sits on the kitchen counter in her chair with the little white tray attachment and puts this food on and around her face. I'd say about 60% actually reaches her mouth. By the time she's done a serving this sticky substance is all over her face, her shirt, the chair, the counter and our hands. Most of it does actually end up in her belly though. It makes her sleep longer at night since she's more full. Good deal for us.

Olivia's Christening was a few weeks ago too. It was a wonderful day that started out with a 10am mass. Livi did great. She mostly stayed quiet and calm. After the service, we returned to our house and continued on with the party. The weather turned out to be great and everyone really had a great time. We'd like to thank everyone that came out for our little girl.
