My hopes for Mason in 2010

As Mason approaches toddlerhood in February of 2010, it will be the year of discovery for this little man.  I have such high hopes for him and have said since he was born that he will do good things in this world.

2009 was his year of birth and he has grown into a very busy, smart little person.  H…

Traveling (little) man - last update

It seems funny that Mason needs a passport to leave the Country considering he's still a baby.  I started this process way back in September and just finished today!  To get a Canadian Passport you will need three things:

  1. The Birth Certificate for baby (which you should already have!) If you have…

Getting organized

I would consider myself to be ultra organized.  I have excel spreadsheets for every aspect of my life from debt reduction to keeping track of the #s on all the frequent flyer and discount cards in my purse.  However one thing that I've never been able to really work with is a dayplanner.

Masey's First Christmas

 

When you have a new baby, you spend the entire year going through the 'first's'.  First smile, first tooth, first step....pretty much everything is a first!!  One of the things I was looking forward to for 2009 was Mason's 1st Christmas!  Christmas over the years has becomes more commercialized …

Mason's Youtube playlist

If you research 'infants and tv' you will see a lot of articles on why children under two shouldn't watch tv.  I think it's a bunch of crap.  I watched a decent amount of tv at that age bracket and turned out just fine!  I also can credit Sesame Street for teaching me how to tie my shoes and how to …

Weird things Mason has tried to put in his mouth today

The world is his playground! A pro crawler since 6 months old and he can zip across a room before you've had a chance to blink!  You can only babyproof his world so much and my philosophy is that it's better for him to have the freedom to crawl around, touch, listen and explore.  Of course there are…

I love magazines

I have been a fan of reading magazines since I was a teen, at that time I think I had 5 subscriptions at once (YM, Fashion and a bunch of others) I never threw them away (we didn't recycle back then) and had a stack over 7ft tall in my closet.  My Dad made me get rid of them when I moved out of the …

Babyproof?

I am sitting at the computer, trying to get all the last minute Xmas things done and I look over to see Mason sitting on the floor.  I go over to him as he's chewing on something.  As I look down at him, it looks like a piece of white paper in his mouth.  So I dig it out and it's the 'baby proofing'…

A new home for the monkey

If you read my other blog you probably have read the recent post about me moving from WordPress to Viviti.com.  Well it was inevitable that Adventures in monkeyland would join us as well.  I hope you don't mind all the recent changes!  I love change!  I promise that it's almost done!  The last thing…

    An Ocean Wonder

    We are never good with surprises in our family, we cannot handle the suspense so for as long as I can remember, Christmas came early in our household.  Presents were doled out days, sometimes weeks before Dec 25th.  Of course there was the 'excuses' that went along with it (to justify the reason for…

    Battle of the bedtime

    I seriously didn't think this would be an issue until at least the toddler stages.  I have one stubborn child.

    Mason's bed time has been earlier this week due to the fact we are staying at my parents house on the Island for a visit.  (Vancouver Island, BC) for you 'out of towners'.  The travelin…
