Diet U2

Rock minus Roll
Whit got a bunch of Rockabye Baby CD's from Santa. Santa thought it would be nice to have some tunes that didn't sound like a monster, mouse, or fairy singing. Our first listen was to U2 Rockabye Baby. The CD is basically a combo of jug band / wind chime noises that sound like U2's greatest hits. I guess I expected Peter, Paul, and Mary singing Bloody Sunday not West Virginia Grandpa blowing into a Miller Lite bottle. None the less, the CD is cute and I think Whit enjoys "rocking out"!

Whitter getting ready for work

Guess he doesn't stress about getting ready?
Whit did not go to his babysitter, Miss Jean, today. Instead he is going to work with Daddy. I am sure buddy is excited to take in the locker room atmosphere at Daddy's work! Who doesn't like Sports Nation and RMC basketball? Before his long day at the office he got some QT with his main monster Cookie! Why can't my mornings involve a play mat and Cookie?

A Momtastic Ride

Cami the Camry RIP.
Whit's wheels.

Since Whit made his appearance in August we have been cramming into my good 'ol Toyota Camry. Cami (Camry) has been a friend since 1999! She rocked out in college, drove me to my first job, moved to Richmond, and welcomed a son. Sadly, she is no longer a member of the Kilcoyne family. She was laid to rest this past week when we bought a family car.

Does family car = mini van? I think not! I don't think I am a mini van mom (yet). Chris and I checked out some baby sized SUV. We decided on a nice white Chevy Equinox. I officially feel like a Mom! The birth of my child did not make me feel momtastic but, the purchase of a family car enduced the reality that I am someones mother! Watch out cause the carpool line is only a few short years away!

Santa v. Grandma

C is for Cookie or Cute?

We love and miss you Kilcoynes!

Me want cookie!

Hanging his first stocking

Merry Christmas 2010!

Both Chris and I tried to quell our mothers excitement over Whit's first Christmas. We kindly asked them both to limit their time in Santa's workshop. Our mothers decided to instead follow Grandma Code and completely ignored what we asked! UPS from Team Kilcoyne and Gigi's Ford Sleigh rolled into town. We are completely full of baby presents!

Whit had a wonderful 1st Christmas. My parents were down for Christmas Day and the Kilcoynes will follow for New Year.

How do you spell Victory?

Brady Baby!
Am I that big?

Daddy and Whit

We took Whit up to New England for Turkey Day. Chris is trying to teach him that the two best things about Thanksgiving are Football and Food! Because of this mantra we felt it necessary to take little man to Patriot Place. The Patriots have their very own museum. I say tourist trap. Hubby says better than the Smithsonian! Whit seemed to enjoy the "history" of it all! Here are some pictures of Whit (daddy) in his glory!

stop stalking me mom!

Because he is sooo cute in his big boy chair! Whit is 2 months going on 30. At 2 months Whit is:

Babbling / Cooing a little bit.

Eating 6 times a day usually 5 oz sometimes 6 oz (BIG BOY).

Whit is a shrimp when it comes to height but, makes up for it with his weight!

Sleeping thru the night if in a strait jacket blanket!

Whit loves looking around and sitting like a big boy.

Prefers to be held outward to not miss a second of anything or anyone!

Cries only when hungry or wet.

Love bouncy seat, bumbo, and boppy.

Any song with a duck in it is a greatest hit!

Whit can grasp his passie or hold a rattle for second maybe two.

Looks great in any type of footie jammie (just saying)!

Shark Attack

Whit celebrated Halloween as a shark! I was a good mother and stuffed my son into a fleece costume in 70 degree weather. Whit may have a mild heat rash but, I have priceless memories! Here are some pics of Whit dressed up before having a literal melt down.

1 foot out the door

Sitting in his bumbo just means he is one step closer to college! Time flies by too quickly!

Pumpkin Patch, Sumpkin Patch

Excited for picking a pumpkin
Our fake out in front of some mums...

Me and the Lil pumpkin
Family Shot

We decided to try a family outing. Try is the key word! Whit is a pretty content baby so we thought it would be safe to venture out to the local pumpkin patch. I had fantasies of cider, hayrides, fields of pristine pumpkins, and swarms of yuppies dressed in their J.Crew finery. I had idealized the perfect fall moment. Boy was I WRONG! Every white trash Leonard Skinard fan decided to descend upon the field. Mass hysteria would have erupted if I yelled "Freebird"! We attempted to wait in the hayride line but, suddenly realized that Whit was already losing IQ points. Therefore, we did a drive by of the pumpkin patch. Whit faked harvest pictures near a hay maze and we bought our pumpkin from the farmers stand! I don't think we missed much. Below our some shots from the Kilcoyne version of the pumpkin patch.


Baby Carriage



Since baby Whit made his debut I've been looking for ways to stay in touch with family and friends. I broke down and decided to start a blog. Hope you enjoy our daily antics!
