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.........

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......

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.........

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........

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........

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..............

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............
