Another sleeping picture

But this time, it is just before going to bed for the night. Vishal can basically hold him in any position and he keeps sleeping (if he is tired and it is his bedtime).

Sleeping in the stroller

Since this is his favorite spot to fall asleep lately (except from Vishal's arms of course) I figured it was worth a picture. I love the raised pinkies... it's the eighth of british genes in him that is very much expressed, Granny would be proud!

Laugh and iPhone

So Nandu (who he often nickname Kuchu as you'll see) knows the iPhone so much that as soon as we try to take a picture of a video with it, he looks at it and stop doing whatever he was doing. This is good for face shots, not so good to take video of him laughing. But here is our attempt (sorry it's a bit long and parts are boring but there are a few nice sequences)

Les Giettes

This weekend was an important weekend for Nandu: his first weekend in Les Giettes!!!

As always, it started by a nice train ride, where I thought that even if everyone says that Nandu has the same way to look at stuff as me, sometime he just looks like his dad.



Then, after a tram, two trains, a bus and 20 min of walking which Nandu handled perfectly, we arrived at the chalet, where after 15 min he decided to poop. I was so proud of my son's timing!



Time for a feed, and then time to "play" with Nandu's cousin. Well they don't play much now, but I can't wait to see these two hang out in a few years.






After a pleasant afternoon in the sun, we were reminded that we are in Les Giettes and the warm clothes we brough were barely enough.



The day after we woke up to a sunny day perfect to introduce Nandu to the best part of a weekend in Les Giettes: Breakfast in the sun!






A little tour by the kitchen to get things ready for lunch:


And enjoy a beautiful hail storm.





Finally, we had a second gorgeous breakfast this morning, followed by a pleasant morning and a peaceful trip home. Very successeful trip!

Tata Aude

My aunt Aude was visiting for last few days, so here are a few pictures taken with her.

The first one was taken in the train during a day trip to Neuchatel.


And this was during our lunch in Pierre-a-bot.



This is a reminder that my brother lives in Peru!




And this coming weekend we are going to Les Giettes, the chalet of the family in the Alpes. I am looking very forward to seeing how Nandu will like it! And you should see pictures next week unless we give up on bringing the camera. This will be decide tomorrow when we pack... Since we don't have a car, it will take two trains, one bus and 20 min through the forest to get there!

First laugh

Just to remember that Nandu laughed for the first time today. Just had to kiss him on each cheeks quite fast and the single giggles he had been doing for a while transformed into a laugh!
What a nice day...

The more the merrier

This weekend was a very successful one. Yesterday we went to my uncle 70th birthday and Nandu was so perfect it's embarrassing! We arrived, and he started by smiling to everyone, then he had the good manners to fall asleep right as lunch started and slept soundly for a good 2 hours until just before dessert. He was fed, then he went back for another round of charming smiles. Honestly I think this kid just loves to see faces, he was just beaming :) (Ok, proud mamma talking...)

I was wondering how he would sleep after being so stimulated all day long, especially since Friday was also a very full day, with us hanging out with Tibor for three hours at Bain des Paquis. Well Nandu decided that after such a nice two days it was time to reward us with his first sleep through the night! He fell asleep at 8.30pm and woke up at 6.30 am! To be honest I have to say that I was up since 5am, waiting for him to wake up, so I wasn't so rested, but this is good news anyway. I don't even dare to think that he might to the same tonight, but at least we are on a good trend, and we've learnt that he is fine hanging out with people all day long.

And finally here are two pictures:

The first one is to show the ratio of a baby head to his arm... just put your arm against your head and you'll see why we were amazed.



And the second is to show how well Nandu can "sit" now :) Ok I am holding his back, but I am not holding his head! So again, I am proud of my 10 weeks old son. (That's my job for the rest of my life right, being proud of my son?)

No pictures

But just a little note, to remind myself that Nandu now smiles at himself in the mirror. I don't think he know it is himself, but he find a smiling face in there and just smile back. And he "talks" more and more, I can basically have minute-long "conversation" with him.

One day, he might hate me for this

but I couldn't resist posting the following picture:


Notice the sticking out of the tongue.. anyone who ever looked at Vishal focusing on anything will know where it come from.

On another note, Nandu seems to be sleeping better and better at night. We are down to 1-2 feedings between 8pm and 7am, when everything goes right. But on the other hand he doesn't seem to enjoy napping at all. If we can get him to sleep 45 min in a row (outside of the scarf) during the day this is considered a good nap. So I guess it's good that we got accepted for daycare three days a week starting in Septembre!

Bathroom fun

Since bath is part of our bedtime routine, I decided to keep a memory of it.

Signs of a good Saturday

Number one: Messy table after a very nice brunch with Anouk and Manu


Number two: A baby that fell asleep for a nap after only 5 minutes of rocking!




Number three: a general good mood because everyone slept enough last night. Nandu slept from 8.30pm to 2.30 then ate from 2.30 to 3, and fell back to sleep until 7am. Probably my best night since he was born!

bottle

Since I'll have to go back to work eventually, we have to make sure that Nandu is able to drink from a bottle. So once in a while I pump my milk and Vishal gives it to Nandu.


Well... since Nandu was able to drink around 100ml in one sitting and was crying bloody murder if we tried to remove the bottle before he was done, I guess we are good to go.

All in 26 seconds

Here are 26 seconds in which Nandu is in deep discussion with his bears... The actual talking happens only at the end, but still!

This chair is magic! No need to entertain him when he is in there.. And on top of that he managed to grab his blanket.

Poor baby

Shots were a nasty birthday present... I'll try to remember that next time.
Nandu was ok until about 7pm, but then he started a fever so we gave him some paracetamol and since then he has been sleeping on Vishal... I guess that's not so bad.

But before that happened I was a very proud mom because for his birthday Nandu grabbed an object for the first time (well if you exclude grabbing my shirt while nursing). I am sure it was intentional because he has been trying to grab that thing for about a week now! And I have proof:



Ok, and this one is just for fun:




2 months statistics :)

First of all, happy 2 months birthday Nandu.

As a present we got him his first set of vaccins... not sure he enjoyed it much, but he doesn't look traumatized, so I guess it's ok.

Right now he is just sleeping in the scarf on my chest, and I am sure that soon he will want to eat.



And this time it's official, we have a big guy. He is now 60 cm, 5.5 kg and his head is 41 cm... It's nice to know that everything is going smoothly. And to make things even better he slept from 8pm to 2.30 am last night. Then he ate and wanted to play a bit, but we got him back to sleep around 3.30 and he then slept till 7am... I hope this will become a trend!

Today it's just pure cuteness



and not much to say... except that Nandu will be 2 months old tomorrow :) And we go see his pediatrician for the occasion so I'll be able to update you on some fascinating things like his size and his weight... Vishal and I have bets open on his size. Vishal says 62 cm and I say 63cm... Results will be posted tomorrow!
