How is Gord doing?

Imagine he's grown quite a bit since he arrived on the scene...

Tricks.... well, he's an expert spitter-upper.   He can break out of a swaddle in minutes.  Mostly he's good at eating, growing, sleeping and fussing.   He's also giving some nice big smiles now and just a hint of giggle.

I set up a flickr account... check out the pics

Very hip baby!  :D

Those are priceless, vicky, but "hip baby" most of all. Och, that gave me a giggle. Make prints and sell them.  :wink:

Great photos vicky.

How could he not be a hip baby. He's called Gord, after all -- just about the most Canadian, or anyway Anglo-Canadian, boy's name there is. The Tragically Hip, after all, saw fit to equip themselves with not one, but two Gords, including a Gord Sinclair.

Is this an open bragging thread?  Cause if so, arborboy just walked on the sidewalk all the way to the daycare.  We didn't take the stroller.  Major milestone!

On arrival I realized we were a few minutes late, and muttered 'shit' to myself.  Big milestone #2 - daycare lady opens the door and he greets her with a big grin and a loud 'OH SHIT!'   :oops: Ahem.

Beautiful baby vicky.  Your partner looks familiar - he and I may have been at the same party at some point when we used to live in Ottawa.
The pleasures of the table are for every man, of every land, and no matter what place in history or society; they can be a part of all his other pleasures, and they last the longest, to console him when he has outlived the rest.

Hip hip hooray for arborboy!!! He's already showing signs that he will never fit in at certain *ahem* places that shall remain nameless :-)

Hooray for arborboy!  

Yep, arborman, I had intended this to be an open bragging thread, fer sure.  

deBeauxOs, that's why Gordon's cousin the trampolinist got him the Jolly Jumper!  She has plans...

OK, I am reviving the brag thread because G is now CRAWLING.  

Oh, and he was in the Ottawa Citizen, Sun and on the cover of the free 24 Hours paper.

it's too bad you can't see his t-shirt.  It has a picture of Che and the slogan "I have no idea who this is".

They should make that one for adults.
