Griffin's First Christmas!!!!

So, as you can see from the pictures, Griffin had lots and lots of fun in Dallas for Christmas! We got to meet lots of my good friends and he was able to meet his little cousin , Zachary.
Griffin even ate at our favorite Mexican Restaurant in Dallas, Pappasitos. He got lots of nice gifts for christmas and he had so much fun with all of his family!
At the end of January, me, Griffin and Bentley are planning on making a trip to Florida for a few weeks to get away from this cold weather :) Well, we hope you enjoy the pics of him and I'm sure I will be updating with a new post shortly.
Until next time.......

California Dreamin.......

Okay, so we are back from our trip to Cali, and boy was it fun. It took us 6 hours to get there and let me mention that the meatball slept maybe 40 minutes total but he never cried- that's my boy!!! While we were there Griffin got to meet all his family and friends. He went to San Diego, Whittier, The OC and all the way up to Ventura and sat in 3 hours traffic to get there- but it was worth it! He went shopping at South Coast Plaza, Fashion Island and Balboa Island and he brought back lots of goodies! This kid was great to travel with and he is officially my favorite travel accessory.

For those of you in CA, I am so glad you were able to see him. Nicole and Heather, you are like sisters to me and I am so glad you got to meet him! Natalie, I am soo sooo glad that we were able to get our little babies together b/c I know that one day they will be great friends- Cozumel here we come!

Anyway, we had a blast and I am so glad me and my mom took him out there to meet the family. By the way, I should mentionthat I have the best mom b/c on the way back home to Boston the Meatball fell asleep on her the entire plane ride back :)

So, now that you all have met the meatball we hope you will make a trip to beantown sometime to come and see him :)

Until next time...............

Griffin Update

Okay, so I have to make this quick b/c I need to go feed the meatball, who by the way loves to eat baby food- especially prunes...He is his father's son for sure.

Anyway, earlier I had him upstairs in his room on his tummy and I was downstairs in front of the computer- of course, and he started to cry about 10 minutes after I had last seen him. So I went up and he had moved from near his crib to just outside his door, so he moved several feet. How- I have no idea. So of course I tried to get him to crawl in front of me- no such luck. But he moved and hopefully soon he will be on the go. I will write more later and hopefully this weekend i will download some new pics, and for those of you in Cali I will see you next week!!!!!

Until next time.......

Santa Baby!

So, over the Thanksgiving break we took Griffin to go see Santa Claus. As you can see, Griffin was not quite sure what to make of it and he didn't know if he should smile :) Oh well, maybe next year he will be a smilebug!
Until next time..........

thanksgiving break

So, for the past 4 days I have had my hubby jason home with me, and boy was that nice. It was nice to have some help with the little one 4 days in a row. I hope we win the lottery so Jason can quit his job, and we can stay home and make like 4 babies just like Griffin! Anyway, not much to say so just wanted to post some pics from our thanksgiving. Hope you enjoy. Be sure to check out how happy jason looks at the thanksgiving dinner table :)

Until next time..........

Holidays- what a mess!

So today me and Griffin went to the mall around 11am to get some things at Williams and Sonoma for Thanksgiving. I figured that the mall wouldn't be too crowded b/c people should be at work- WRONG!!!! Everyone and their dog was at the mall, it was a nightmare! I mean people still work right?! I guess everyone takes the whole week off or something- CRAZY.

Then we had to go to Trader Joes and Whole Foods to get a leg up on our Thanksgiving shopping. Since today is Monday I figured the markets won't be busy till Wednesday- WRONG AGAIN!!! I have never seen the parking lots so crowded- what a mess. So for those of you doing thanksgiving this year, I hope you were smarted than me and already did your shopping.

NOTE TO SELF: Next year we are going to Mom's for thanksgiving :)

Until next time.........

Meatball Update!

So the meatball had his 6 month checkup yesterday and everything seems good. He is normal for his weight and he is considered a "tall" baby b/c he is long :) Maybe the meatball will play basketball in the NBA when he grows up.

Anyway, all is good with him and he ate all of his rice cereal mixed with sweet potatoes today. Tomorrow we will start him on apple sauce for a few days and see how he does with that.

Well, not much else to report except that we are going to California for a week the beginning of December so my friends and family can finally meet him and then we are off to Dallas for Christmas. Other than that not much else to say so ....................

Until next time..................

Feeding Frenzy!!!!

So this past weekend we added sweet potatoes to Griffin's rice cereal and he really seems to enjoyit and so does bentley! I just can't believe that Griffin is already eating baby food, I mean it was just 6 months ago that he wasn't even born yet and now he is almost sitting up and scooching across the floor...My how time flies. Anyway, not too much happened this past weekend other than feeding Griffin baby food. After this week is up I will introduce a new food to him since I guess you are supposed to wait a few days to make sure he doesn't have an allergic reaction to the food. So if anyone has any suggestions on baby foodand what to try next please let me know.

Until next time.....

What a Joke!

In what is clearly an attempt to try and extricate more money from Britney, Kevin Federline has responded to Spears' divorce petition and he is asking for sole custody of their two boys.
Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
There ain't no judge in hell or Fresno that would give FedEx sole custody of Tater Tot and Small Fry.
Shit, he shouldn't even be allowed unsupervised visitation rights!
Not that Spears is the best parent, but at least she can afford some help. K-Fag will undoubtedly be filing for bankruptcy in three years.
Don't play Britney, asswipe!

Brit Brit News!

Britney Spears has reportedly filed for divorce from rapper-dancer Kevin Federline.
The Los Angeles County Superior Court filing cites “irreconcilable differences,” said court spokeswoman Kathy Roberts.
Her petition asks for legal and physical custody of their two kids, one-year-old Sean Preston and two-month-old Jayden James.
Spears gives the date of separation as yesterday, the same day she showed off her post-pregnancy body during a surprise appearance on “Late Show with David Letterman.”
Spears, 24, married Federline, 28, in 2004. Rumors of marriage woes have dogged the couple almost from the start.

90210 Tuesday!!!!!

Is it just me or is anyone else excited about today!!!!! Today is 90210 Tuesday, that's right, 90210 is finally out on DVD!!! This is one of the moments that I have been waiting for for a very very long time! I mean I was so excited I was hardly able to sleep last night. I was like a little kid waiting for Santa to arrive. So of course today I must go out and buy season one on DVD!

I'm not sure what it is about this show but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I began watching this show when I was in 6th grade when it first came out and I watched it all the way to the end, my junior year in college. There are many shows that have tried to copy 90210, but none will ever be as good.

I mean seriously, what is up on the OC with Ryan and the whole fight club thing?! And what, Summer goes off to college and becomes a tree hugger- PLEASE! And on Laguna Beach the real OC- can I please tell you how much I hate Kyndra and Cami,They are so stupid!!! And why is Jessica from like 3 season who must be 21 by now still wanting to date 17 year old juniors. But she finally has good taste this time, b/c Cameron looks like a young Tom Brady. But back to 90210.

None of these shows even comes close to 90210!!!! I can't wait till the meatball is old enough to watch 90210 with me, it will be such a proud moment for me! I wonder if he will be a Brenda fan like his mom or a Kelly fan. :)

Until next time.........

Baby Food

So, on Saturday we started feeding Griffin rice cereal and let's just say he HATES it! We tried it once on Saturday and once again on Sunday. I will try again on Monday but if he still doesn't like it I will wait a few days and try again. We started with the rice cereal but I guess if he doesn't take to that we can try the oatmeal or barley cereal. For those of you moms that read this, if you have any helpful advice for this topic that would be greatly appreciated. I thought for sure my meatball would gobble it up since he is such a piggy but I was wrong. I mean I eat anything you put in front of me and I thought he would follow in the Biancardi foot steps. Well, I will keep you posted on how feeding time goes.

Until next time..........

Life Aquatic with the Meatball

My meatball looks like he can be part of the cast!

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

Story Time

So every Tuesday I take the meatball to story time at the public library. I can't tell you enough how great it is that the libraries do this. For those of you with little brats of your own, I highly recommend looking into story time at your local library.

Yes, the meatball is the youngest one in there but it is good for him to be around books and it is good for him to see the other older brats crawling and walking so he can learn by watching them. And did I mention the best part- it's FREE! Now, there's a word that my husband can really appreciate!!! :) But seriously, this is a great thing that most libraries offer and I am going to continue to do this with my little meatball for a very long time!

Until next time.........

This Past Weekend

So, Saturday night was the big night that we left the meatball alone with a sitter. We were gone for about 7 hours and all I could think about while we were out at the Story Book Ball was the little guy. However, we did magange to have lots of fun and win lots of great prizes.

So the little guy did well with the sitter. She held him for 2 hours, b/c we all know that the meatball is spoiled and likes to be held 24/7. Then he made a big stinky ( well she had to earn her 15 dollars an hour :) ) and then we ate and went to bed and he slept all night. So of course we called to check up on him and he was doing great. So, at least now I know that I can leave him if I have to, but why on earth would I want to?!

One of the prizes we won were Patriots football tickets in November. It is an afternoon game, and we are thinking about taking the meatball to his first football game, besides he loves pretty boy Brady! Anyway, we survived leaving him home and apparently he did fine.

Until next time......

New England Fall

What can I say, I gotta love the fall in New England. It is so beautiful here right now! All the trees are changing and it is just gorgeous. I love to take the meatball and Bentley out for walks everyday to enjoy the weather and the scenery. In Texas and California I didn't get to experience the seasons like up here and it really is a neat thing. I am really glad that the meatball gets to enjoy this with me, so for those of you not here- don't be jealous :).

Until next time.........

Baby Yoga

So I figure it has been a while since I have given you a baby yoga update. Well, we went today and the meatball seems to be enjoying it more and more each week. Next week the session is over so I have signed us up for the next session as well.

I think that since we have been doing baby yoga he sleeps better at night and during the day, it helps his digestive system and all in all he seems truly happy when doing it. It is good for him b/c they incorporate tummy time and now Griffin likes to be on his tummy and roll over and he is learning how to sit up on his own b/c his muscles are getting strong due to the yoga poses. And it is a good time for the 2 of us to bond together.

At night I incorporate his yoga with his baby massage and it really does help him sleep. I strongly recommend baby yoga and baby massage to all you moms out there. I am for sure going to keep this up with the meatball and with our future meaballs as well. I mean if nothing else at least I get to dress him up really cute once a week in his yoga attire :)

Until next time........

bla bla bla

Okay, first before anything I want to wish my mom a happy birthday! Love you mom!!!

Okay, now back to business. So this past weekend was a fun filled weekend for the Post Family. My dear friend Nani D came to visit us for the weekend. Nani D was my roommate while I was in training to be a flight attendant. So on Friday we took the meatball out to lunch and then we all went out to dinner and had ourselves some great seafood, yummy!!!

Saturday we went to downtown Boston and had ourselves some Mexican food for lunch and we took the meatball to the Commons to enjoy the great weather. Then that night we vegged out at home and fed the meatball some sushi!

On Sunday we took the family to the pumpkin Patch and took tons and tons of pictures as most of you probably have seen :) Griffin loves all his pumpkins and hay that his daddy bought for him and he can't wait for all the trick or treaters to come and see his pumpkins.

It was so nice to have a friend come to visit and get to meet the meatball. I know that the meatball already misses his Nani D and so does the doggy- he slept with her every night. So we had a blast this past weekend and just wanted to fill everyone in on it.

Note to Nani D- we can't wait to come to Cajun country for Mardi Gras!!!!!

Until next time........

Tummy Time

Ah , the dreaded tummy time. The meatball can't stand tummy time yet I make him do it everyday and I think my hard work and effort has finally paid off.

Yesterday the meatball rolled over 15 times! Yep, 15 times, I kid you not. And so far today twice and he is even alseep on his tummy as we speak. I know I am totally OCD about rolling over and tummy time but I can't help it.

I mean seriously Ariele, is it really going to matter 18 years from now when the meatball is up at the podium giving his valedictorian speech to everyone?! No, it doesn't matter if he rolls at 2 months , 4 months or even 8 months, but I can't help it!!! I'm obsessed with the rolling, somebody help me!!!!!

Anyway, just wanted to fill you all in on the meatball and tummy time. And by the way 18 years from now, I hope you will all be present to see the meatball give his speech :)

Until next time..............

Griffin's weekend

This weekend Griffin got a new jogger stroller. You may be saying to yourself, "Ariele, I didn't know you run?" I don't run, I don't jog that much unless it is on a treadmill, so what the hell am I doing with a jogger! Well, for one it is stylish and two in New England, there are lots of trails for hiking so that is what we did. We take the meatball hiking on the trails with Bentley and he seems to enjoy it b/c with this stroller he can face out and look at all the trees.

Then on Sunday, we got together with the meatball's buddy Connor. We took the kids to the Summer Shack restaurant in Cambridge and ate lots of Lobster!!! Connor is 3 months older than the meatball but they still like to play, infact they are going trick or treating together too :) So all in all we had a pretty kick back weekend which was nice. Hope everyone else had a good one.

Until next time............
