25 pounds 1.6 ounces

So we did a quick little weigh-in at the Health Unit yesterday and that is one big baby boy! Only five and a half months and as much as his mommy likes to worry that he is too big, the nurses just love that he is as big as he is. Hard on my back, but cute as a button! I would like to believe that he recognizes me when he sees me but he is such a smiley little guy that everyone gets a grin. We babysat him last weekend and he just knows when his mommy leaves as he does a great little angry cry.......probably lasts about 15 minutes and then he is fine. I spoiled him rotten and held him for 3 hours when he slept and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

He can sit up!




He's just getting bigger and cuter all of the time. We went for a walk tonight and then after we came home he sat unassisted for the first time! (ok, we put pillows behind him, but that was just precautionary!)

Alaska

So we are home, and we had a wonderful time on our cruise. This is just one of the pics that I took and as I was starting to upload, the batteries went in my camera so I am waiting until they recharge and I will post more. The colour of Tracy Arm is quite hard to describe and this picture really doesn't do it justice, but I think you can probably get the jist of it. The little ice cubes in the water get bigger and bigger as we get closer to the Sawyer Glacier but it is rather fascinating and surprisingly entertaining to watch floating ice all afternoon. This was on the third day, in between Juneau and Skagway and it was sooooooooooo cold!! I am so happy that we brought winter coats, and was interesting to watch the many people who didn't. Alaska is very wet and very cold, and I knew that from talking to my friends who have cruised there but we were very lucky and only got one day of rain. The little sales girl in the candy store told Hubby that she had just graduated and was looking very forward to moving to Portland, as Ketchikan was a great place to be from.......but not to live. They get 330 days of rain a year, and that is way more than the lower mainland. As we cruised back into Vancouver Harbour on Sunday morning, it has been a real treat to enjoy the warmth and sunshine again!
