"In the eyes of a child...there is joy, there is laughter... there is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future..."

Winter is upon us here in the Maritimes, which means bundling up and lots of snuggling!!
My little bright eyes is not a fan of all these extra layers!
Macalasdair turned nine months old today! He weighed in at 17 pounds and 9 ounces! That is a 2 pound and 10 ounce gain from his 6 months appointment!
He went for his booster shots and flu shot yesterday and handled it like a champ- only 2 second tears and then gave the doctor the stink eye and was over it. He had to get extra shots because in Ontario they do not vaccinate as much as they do in New Brunswick, so he is behind on some of his vaccinations and needs to be given them gradually to catch up.
Due to the allergic reactions he has had to some
milk products and strawberries, we were concerned that
he would have a reaction to the egg protein in the flu shot. I am pretty sure my doctor was annoyed by how many questions I had and how paranoid I was, but thankfully he was fine and had no reaction at all!
Big Boy- Growing so fast
All those times you hear people say "They grow so fast"- you never truly understand how true that is until you are a parent yourself. I feel like I just blinked my eyes and he went from four months to nine months. It makes my heart hurt to think he is going to be a big boy soon.
Fell asleep watching cartoons with Mama
Every stage just gets better and better!
Mac has such a great personality - he is funny, sweet and loving.
Thankfully, he still LOVES to cuddle.
He loves anything related to music.
He is now sleeping in his crib for naps and over night- although we still have to go in and rest our hand on him to let him know he is not alone a couple times through the night. He likes to sleep with his George the Giraffe and Matty the Monkey, and some nights Kat the Kitty.
His favorite thing is to happily yell at the top of his lungs. He finds this very amusing and does it all day long some days!
His favorite toys are his "Play and Learn Guitar", his mega blocks and of course the walker that helps him walk around all day!
He has 8 teeth now.
He is the most perfect little man
