On the Cruise!

Surprise! Daddy (part of my IT dep't) found a 'wi-fi hotspot' on our cruise, so I'm able to post this picture of us on deck. So far, I'm having a great time! I've been hanging around Daddy and my brothers all day checking out the boat. It's BIG.. it has 17 stories! (it used to have 18, but that's another story).

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Gone for the Holidays!

Mommy and Daddy just told me about our holiday plans- We're leaving on a Cruise tomorrow!! As you can see, I'm very excited. I get to go on an airplane and a boat.

Unfortunately, this means I won't be writing in my blog for a whole week (hey, even babies need a break sometimes). Until I return, I hope everyone has a Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See you in 2006!

Ordering take-out

Here you see me ordering dinner (I had a coupon for free delivery). Since my usual meals are BORING, I thought I would try something different. As soon as the doorbell rang, I knew I made the right decision!

This menu looks delicious!

Caught by surprise

As you can see, the paparazzi caught me by surprise. Next time I'll make sure I'm alone before I carry out my diabolical plans.

Caught me!

101 Pushups

Every morning I start my day with 101 pushups. Just like my Daddy. Not.

Daddy's favourite chair (582nd month)

Here I am in Daddy's favourite chair. It's even more comfortable than my favourite chair. To see a picture of me in it seven months ago, Click Here (as you can see I've grown a lot since then).

One day this chair will be MINE!

Sunday, 18 December 2005

My favourite chair (9th month)

As most of my fans know, Daddy takes a picture of me every month in my favourite chair. Personally, I think Daddy has an obsessive compulsive disorder.

Here Daddy, take a picture of THIS!

It's the weekend!

Hooray, it's the weekend! That means I can kick up my feet and have fun.

"Simon says.. Feet up"

Still playing "too ruff"

Remember when I used to play "too ruff" (as in, "stop that, you're playing too ruff"). Well I still play too ruff. To see some of my favorite moves, click below:

"Got you!"

Doing the Hokey Pokey

Today Mommy taught me how to do the "Hokey Pokey"! She tried teaching Daddy, but he's got two left feet.

"Look everyone, I'm a puppet!"

Wednesday, 14 December 2005

All better

I'm not sick any more! I guess all that baby holding has paid off. When I get bigger, I'm going to hold Mommy & Daddy when they get sick.

I've decided not to get sick anymore

Crawling. almost

This is me (last week) just after I crawled to my ball. Ok, I didn't actually "crawl" (as defined by "grownups"). I dragged myself to the ball using my extraordinary strength.

* To see a VIDEO CLIP of this amazing feat, CLICK HERE *

Wanna race?

Reading material to munch on

While I'm resting, Mommy gave me an interesting book to eat (she might have said read). Anyway, I thought the book was delicious. I hope she gives me some more feeding material (I can use the fiber).

"This book is excellent"

Still yucky..

I'm still feeling yucky! Mommy & Daddy took turns holding me which makes me feel better. They're taking me to the doctor later. I said ok, as long as he doesn't circumsize me again!

Saturday, 10 December 2005


Mommy says I have to stay inside all day. You see, I have a fever (Night- 39C/102F, Now 38C/100F). I learn something new every day, and today I learned that I don't like fevers.

Mommy gave me some medicine (Tempra), and lots of hugs, so now I'm feeling a little better. Maybe I'll work on my blog today.

Friday, 9 December 2005


Here's another game I never get tired of : Peek-A-Boo! Daddy thinks I'm laughing from anticipation, but really, I'm laughing at his goofy expression.

You got me! Again!!

Pillow Fort

Here I am emerging from my pillow fort. I like to hide here when I'm feeling yucky (like when my teeth hurt). It's a lousy hiding spot though. The paparazzi always find me!

[Wanna treasure hunt? Just click on the picture and look for my little tooth!]

Wednesday, 7 December 2005


As you can see, I'm not always a happy baby. Sometimes I can be very unhappy. Especially when my teeth come in. Sometimes being a baby sucks.

It hurts! Do something!!

Funny faces

In this picture, Mommy & Daddy are making funny faces at me. For some reason it makes me laugh. I hope my sense of humor improves as I get older.

"Do it again"

The 4 stages of playing

Here I am with my 'playthingy'. It's my favourite toy at the moment. Oh, wait a sec... ok, the moment's passed. On the bottom right I'm reaching for my new favourite toy.

"I prefer the box it came in".

Waiting patiently

Here I am waiting patiently to be picked up by Mommy or Daddy. We're leaving soon for lunch, and as usual, I'm ready and they're not. They said "they'll be a sec". I don't know what "a sec" means, but it must mean "a long time".


Saturday, 3 December 2005


Daddy just caught Mommy and I taking a nap. Since she just fed me, I'm exhausted. Sometimes it's hard work being a baby.

Napping between meals

A good head on his shoulders

Here I am helping my brother with his assignment. Since Daddy says two heads are better than one, I decided to help Jason out. I'm not sure if it helped him, but I sure had fun!

Bathtime at home

As most of my fans know, I love bathtime! I get to splash everyone nearby. Mommy says I swim like a little fish. Don't tell Daddy though- he might eat me!

Got you!

Wednesday, 30 November 2005

Washing the dishes

Here I am helping Mommy with the dishes. She does lots of different things around the house. I haven't figured out what Daddy does yet.

My first attempt at pool

Today I learned how to play pool. As you can see, I haven't quite grasped the concept.

Tomorrow I'll try bowling

Monday, 28 November 2005

Indoor day

Here I am playing inside with Mommy & Daddy. Since it was cold & yucky outside, I decided to spend the whole day with them indoors.

I like cold & yucky days.

Good Karma

Last week we went to Karma's birthday party. Karma is a dog we know (she's a cross between 'Jaws' and the 'Energizer Bunny').

Karma was fun; we liked hanging around her. As you can see, she liked hanging around us too.

Back home

Here I am back home. Even though my trip to Japan is over, I sometimes close my eyes and remember all the fun I had.

Friday, 25 November 2005

Bye Bye Japan

This is a picture of me on the bus to the airport. I'm looking out the window at Grandma and Grandpa, just before the bus pulled away. They looked very sad to see me go. Fortunately they can still see me everyday on my blog.

"Bye Bye everyone, and thanks for all the fish"

Great Grandma's table

I'm really going to miss Great Grandma's dining room table. Because it's so low to the ground, it's a lot more fun than the tables in Canada. In this picture you see me playing under the table. I'm glad Daddy's wearing his underwear.

To see what else I did at the table, click below:

Little green bucket

Here I am 'Splishing & Splashing' in a little green bucket. In Japan, you get washed before you get in the big bath. They must be the cleanest people on the planet!

Bathtime in Japan

Baths are very popular in Japan. Actually they're more like swimming pools. Especially to babies. In this picture, Mommy is using me as a flotation device.

As you can see, Grandma is helping too. To see Grandma bathing me when I was only 2 weeks old- Click Here.

It's Great Grandma!

I finally met Great Grandma! She lives in the country somewhere in Japan (near Godzilla). She was very happy to see me. I guess there aren't many babies where she lives.

In this picture we're playing 'Hide & Seek' (Sssshhhhh, don't tell her where I'm hiding).

Click below to see what else I did at Great Grandma's:
(1) Ate lots of food (2) Then ate more food (3) Paid respects to Great Grandpa (4) Met some relatives
(5) Went shopping (6) Rode the bullet train (7) Went for walks (8) Took long naps,and best of all (9) got to know Great Grandma!

Quality time

Another thing I liked about our trip was that I got to spend so much time with Mommy & Daddy.
As you know, grownups need a lot of attention. Since I wasn't working on my blog all week, I was able to provide it. It was a win-win situation for everyone. Except my fans.

Trick or Treating with Grandma

Oh no, not the pumpkin! Since we were in Japan for Halloween, Grandma took me 'Trick or Sleeping'. Next year, I'll try to stay awake (after all, I'm going to be BLOGZILLA)!

"Trick or ZZzzzzzz"

(P.S. Don't worry, this is the last time you see me as a pumpkin!)

My favourite chair (8th month)

Happy Birthday to ME! Yesterday I turned 8 months old (although I don't feel a day over 7)! Daddy celebrated by taking pictures of me in my favourite chair. When Daddy gets older, I'm going to take pictures of him in his favourite wheelchair.

(I also like my fuzzy blue chair)

Thursday, 17 November 2005

It's Grandma!

Here I am playing with Grandma. I haven't seen her since I was a little baby. Now that I'm bigger, I can talk to her. She talks to me in Japanese and I talk to her in baby babbles. Oddly enough, we understand each other.

We finally arrive!

HOORAY, we finally arrived in Japan! In this picture, I'm all bundled up for a walk. It looks like the middle of the day, but really, it's only 3:00 am. Thanks to jet lag, I was able to get an early start to the day. I'm very happy here because Daddy is taking me for a long walk. Daddy wasn't as happy.

"Once more around the block please"

On the airplane ..

Here I am entertaining Mommy on the airplane. It was a long trip so I had to keep her and Daddy busy. They tried putting me in a bassinet, but I couldn't sleep. So instead, I let Mommy hold me (the entire trip). We finally arrived in Japan, a day or two later. (To see more pictures, click below).

Tell me another story!

I'm Back!!

Remember me? I'm finally home! Now you can stop looking at my stupid pumpkin outfit. Starting tomorrow, I'll show you pictures of my trip to Japan. It was the best vacation I've ever had! It gave me lots of new memories. I hope I don't lose them like my Daddy.

The picture below was taken in British Columbia. We stopped there on the way to Japan to visit Grandpa's Mommy and Sister (they live in Victoria). I think they liked me. (To see a video clip after we met, click below).

I'm really tired now (it took 21 hours to get back from Tokyo), so I'm going to take a nap. Good night (I'm still on Japan time).

Trick or Treat!

One last thing before I go (today)..

Since I won't be here for Halloween, I thought you'd like to see my costume. A PUMPKIN! How embarrassing! (even for a baby). Personally, I'd rather be GODZILLA (after all, I'll be 'Trick or Treating' in Tokyo).

Trick or Treat!

All packed & ready to go!

Hooray, we're all packed! Tomorrow I leave to Japan (& BC) with Mommy & Daddy. Even though Grandma & Grampa haven't seen me since I was a baby, they've been watching me grow (through my blog) every day. I can't wait to see them again in person!

Sorry to my fans, but I won't be updating my blog for the next few weeks. Until then, go hug a baby!

Sunday, 23 October 2005

Packing for our trip

Here I am watching Mommy & Daddy pack for our trip to Japan (We leave in 2 days!). They're worried they're going to forget something. As long as they don't forget me I'm happy.

"I hope they don't pack me in the suitcase"

My brother's cap

Here I am staring at my big brother's cap. I want it!

I got it! I guess My big fat head isn't so big after all.
