Daddy's New "Man Cave"




Today Mama and I worked really hard to make a super cool "Man Cave" for Daddy. (Okay, I rolled around on a blanket on the floor, but I still contributed coos of approval!) It's a total hang-out room for Daddy and his buddies, complete with poker set and electronic dart board, his record player and all his guitars and other musical instruments. Check it out!!

I Love Food!!


Now that I'm a little bigger, Mama and I are experimenting with solid foods! I'm having so much fun getting really messy! I especially like sticking my whole hand in the food dishes and getting glops of goo everywhere! My first foods have been organic avocado, bananas, prunes and brown rice cereal. YUMMY!!!!!






Pretty Baby Ready for Spring!

Here I am, ready for spring time!! Daddy has to beat the boys off with a stick!!


For Aunt Lindsey!

Aunt Lindsey gave me some of the coolest wooden toys I've ever seen for Christmas. This snail is a little heavy for me to pick up, but I LOVE trying to get him in my mouth!

Little Lactivist



Lactation + Activism = LACTIVISM! I'm a little lactivist!

Would you eat your breakfast sitting in a smelly public bathroom? Or a snack with a blanket over your head? How about dinner in a dressing room? Well, I don't like the sound of that, either!!!
My mama and I had a full day of at the New York State Museum demonstrating that point on Friday. Now we're famous!

Cuz I'm Cute!




Do These Diapers Make My Butt Look Fat???


Nobody believed Mama when she said she was going to use Cloth Diapers with me! Not only is it better for the environment, but it's also so much gentler on my little tushy! I've never had a diaper rash, tank goodness! Cloth Diapering is actually quite trendy now, too! We're about 75% disposables and 25% cloth because were out n' about so much. On days at home I'm usually in cloth now! Look how cute I am here playing while Mama sorted out my diapers... I'm wearing a Green one for Daddy, because it's his favorite color!!

Also, here's a picture of me just being adorable in my little Red snowflake sweaterfrom Gracie and Satya!

Valentine's Day



Thanks to Mama's awesome new Ergo Baby Carrier, she was actually able to make dinner for Daddy on Valentine's day! I sat happily on her back until I fell asleep while she made a yummy winter squash and red pepper quiche that looked lovely next to the spring daffodils Daddy gave her. Here we are in our Red & Pink for V-day!!

Dance Ruby, Dance!

Sometimes when Daddy is alone with me I like to give him a hard time. He thinks it's because I miss mama but really I just like to see him scramble to come up with ways to stop me from crying! (Mwaa-ha ha!!) I think he finally figured out how to keep me happy when mama is away...... MUSIC! I love to dance!!!
