2 months on....


Hard to believe we are now two months into this wonderful adventure. Chris has kindly loaned us the use of a computer so I thought I would post a recent photo of Blake - I have no idea where the time has gone...!

Dances with Lyons: Technical Upgrade

DwL wishes to inform its loyal readers of an upcoming technical upgrade (in plain English: we got a new laptop). Unfortunately, the upgrade means that there will be a service disruption to DwL postings (the new laptop was broken so is being sent back!). The editor wished to inform the readership that there will be more postings, but not until the laptop is fixed and returned to the DwL head office. This posting is being made from the PUBLIC LIBRARY in Queen's Park...when they say that you eventually become your mother, I didn't think this applied in every single sense, but apparently this is yet one more thing to make me think this is an inevitable change!
All is well with the Lyons clan: Blake up to 11lbs, 10 oz at last weigh in and really a gem of a boy, despite still not sleeping through the night. I've given up on its happening...after 8 weeks of broken sleep I guess we'll just keep coping until it does!
So check back in a week or so and we'll hope to have some new pictures/stories! In the meantime, thank you for your faithful patronage.

Not for the time-deprived

A rather obscene number of pics are posted over at http://www.lyonsblakey.co.uk/ in Blake Weeks 6 & 7. Unless you are one of Blake's grandparents, you may not want to look at them all....you will see what I mean when you get there but the time it took to pick the ones to post was a little too much for us!

Meg is not a professional videographer!

Ok, basic mistake here - taking the video off the camera in the wrong direction!! But you get the idea and now I know for the future! I think this was sometime last week...but time gets blurred so it may have been this week!

Our loveable Lyon


Blake is looking a bit serious here but covered his face for the photo where he was smiling!

Thought he looked pretty cute in his "big boy loveable lion" outfit courtesy of the Cooks (and socks courtesy of Mothercare by way of Anna and shoes from Kathryn, Katie, and Lela!)
Mom has gone back to the books and currently trying to put Blake on the E.A.S.Y routine suggested by the baby whisperer...

Time flies


We looked in the Moses basket and wondered where our "little baby" had gone!!!

Motherhood is...



Drinking one sip of hot coffee and then finishing the cup when it's ice cold 2 hours later...

Looking for daycare 10 months before it's needed...
Laughing at how a six-week old can look so much like an old man, hair loss and all...

Gazing in wonder at the gorgeous being you helped create...

Foregoing a shower to post pictures so that your friends and family can share in the joy.

Trying out the floor gym






We tried the floor gym yesterday and Blake seemed to like it!
Mom and Dad wish for more sleep but are otherwise happy.
