Well it's official... if it hasn't been said before, Christmas is good times.
Every day there's smiling and laughing, eating and yelling, colour and clapping, chewing and crawling, and lights and life!
Speaking of all things good, have you guys ever seen plastic dishes!? This christmas I received some delightful garments and some playful toys, but Holy Mother of Moses, once I tasted the plastic dishes I was hooked. I've heard a little bit about penicillin and the space time continuum, but whoever is responsible for these pieces of wonderment deserves the science prize of all time.
Thank you kindly for the wonderful prezzies and I truly hope you all had a delightful season. Here's to a Happy New Year!

Stand Tall

The rumours are true - I've been doing the standing trick for the last 4 days (ages). It feels like it was only yesterday that I was doing a lot more not standing. 
Incidentally, I also managed my first crawl on that Sunday (about 2 hours after the "I'm not into napping right now, so I'm going to pull myself up and stand at the edge of my crib" stunt). There are far more pictures of me standing these days, as I do that like it's going outta style. I'll keep you posted on the crawling, but at the moment I just don't see the point, as I can now reach the heavens (and the table).
I learned about the snow today (and that my Mum really, really likes it).

7 Months - Trip

I turned 7 months yesterday. It seems like a pretty pivotal number - 7 days of the week, 7 deadly sins, there are 7 colours in a rainbow and it's how many months old I am.
For a birthday trip I went to San Francisco for a couple of days. Having never been to San Francisco, it was a real treat. Good weather, great people and tasty bites. We spent some time with my cousins in Berkeley which was lovely.  Speaking of the food, I ate in several new places with new smells and people, but the food always tasted the same.
(I'm hoping to start crawling and standing on the same day - before 2009. I'll keep you posted.)

Photography Weeks 27 - 29

As we have a fair amount of pictures to get through I thought I'd try and keep you busy in time with the slideshow. 
Hi there, just chilling on the couch - nice to see you. 
Here I am playing with my buddy Jasper - man, that guy knows some cool stuff. I just try and take it all in as best I can. Charlie Brown Piano, what? My Grandad needs to teach me how to play this thing.
My mum, having lunch on her birthday. Who's birthday, you ask? MY MUM'S!!
Water? Yes please pretty lady. 
So these are what babysitters look like, eh? 
That's my mum. That's my mum.
"Highchair Musical 3" auditions - joy... and... drama.
Hmmm, what would happen if I used my powers for both good and evil?
Me again. Lion impression - Roar!
That's my Dad.
There's a guy hanging out in the woods in Snowman pajamas.
That's right - sometimes I like to comb my hair.

Mum's Birthday

Yesterday was my Mum's birthday (I'm not sure if you all know my mum, but if you and I have hung out before, she's usually pretty close by). She seemed thoroughly excited about her approaching big day - she's been telling me about it for ages.
I decided that it's nice when people have special days - it got me to thinking about how special I think my mum is:
  • She feeds me all sorts of healthy foods throughout the day, so I can probably thank her for my dominating size and fitness.
  • We have the best conversations (sometimes even about secret stuff that I can't tell you), and she's always reading, singing and teaching me things (like how her hair isn't to be used as a handle). Although, she seems obsessed with repeating 'ma' to me, slower and more pronounced each time - a little annoying to be honest.
  • She's happy to come by in the middle of the night, if I feel like having a chat.
  • Without getting too over the top, she's a very good snuggler.
Mum, if you're reading this, I want to say the biggest birthday thank you for all your endless love and patience. Without you I probably would have joined the circus by now, what with my incredible faux crawl/push around ninja tricks and killer teeth.
I love hanging out with you. You taught me to smile.

Doctor Doctor

I saw Dr.Leslie again today - this was my second visit with her, so we caught up a little before we got into the personals and nakedness. For the numberbods out there, I'm about 21 lbs and just over 75 cm tall. After dropping a couple of points in the size percentiles a couple of months ago (mirroring the economy), I'm right back at the top again. As far as she was concerned, everything seems to be in perfect working order. 'Seems?' I said - oh, how we laughed.
As a general update, I'm eating all sorts of things now: yams (very tasty), rice cereal (sure), oatmeal (really nice), plastic feeder jets (good for cleansing), apple/oatmeal/banana breakfast cereal (okay), avocado (what are you punishing me for?), water (Sweet Jesus, that's a delicious beverage). In terms of crawling, I'm not there yet, but man, do I have the reverse-push taken care of. Go ahead and throw a big'ole check mark by that one.

6 Months

It seems like the milestones never stop. Here I am at 6 months old, and I'm pretty sure I have another 2 teeth coming in - if I keep getting any more teeth I'm going to run out of room for food. Speaking of food, I can now add rice cereal, sweet potato and water to my repertoire (although, so far I'm rather suspicious of banana).

Tuesday, November 4, 2008


Tonight was quite something. With the time change, my schedule has been a little messed up of late, but tonight, there was no chance I was going to miss the results. 
They put me down at a reasonable time, but I got right back up again. They comforted me and asked me what was wrong, and I told them: This election has been going on for my entire life - there's no chance I'm missing the results now. I've come too far to put my head down and dream of never-ending milk fountains at such a historical moment. They seemed to hear my cry, as I was able to return to quietly witness this race come to its rightful conclusion.
This is no time for me to suggest that my official endorsement had anything to do with tonight's outcome - let's just agree it didn't hurt. Tonight should be about all of us using this momentum as a launching pad for positive change. Imagine the things we can accomplish while aiming for a better tomorrow. Who knows, maybe I'll even start liking banana.

OK - so here's just a picture of 3 regular old pumpkins in the woods hangin' out - nothing to see here. "Next slide!" I'm just kidding, that's me in the middle, in a professional pumpkin disguise. Apparently, last weekend was all about going to different places pretending to be different things. To be honest, I've got so much going on these days trying to learn about how to be me, I've hardly got time to pretend to be other things (story of life I suppose). I don't even know what kinds of noises pumpkins are supposed to make (and these other two were no help). 
I don't want you to be alarmed, that's me as the bee aswell. Far more convincing I know - I really got inside the essence of the hardships of a bee that had wings, but couldn't fly. 
By the end of the weekend, the disguises got a little mixed up - right about the time the wine-drinking, miniature horse-riding cowboy arrived.

Great Store (plus mystery guest writer...)

I'll be the first to admit that at times I can be pretty picky when it comes to quality control (although for the most part, anything that I can get in my mouth has a good chance of passing the test). Last month, my Dad came back from a trip with a lovely set of soft blocks, and told me about this store The Little Seed. So being the kind of guy I am (personable, handsome & opinionated), I did my own research - sure enough, it's a gold mine of eco/green baby gear!
I then contacted the store, we got to talking, one thing led to another, and they asked me to write a quick guest post on their Seedling Blog.

I go off on a little bit of a rant, but I hope you enjoy it - and many thanks to my new friends Soleil and Ashley. Let's do it again sometime.

Photography Week 22 (incl Whidbey Island)

I'm pretty sure my trip to The Bedford Farm was my first trek south of the border. From my brief visit I found it to be similar to this country, although I saw a tremendous amount of homes and cars built by either the Obama Company or the McCain Company. 
The farm was delightfully peaceful, and it was nice to get away for a break from the usual routine. I did come home with a cold though, which hasn't been great. I'll tell you the thing I've learned about colds: Fun to get, bad to have. I managed to garner this one by joining the gang on a bluff walk on Whidbey Island (barely on the island as you'll see). I had my eyes closed for the majority of it, but the sights that I did see were quite breathtaking.
Side note: I'm working on bringing out the top two teeth at the moment - I figure once those two are in, I should be done.

Photography Week 20 & 21

So I am told it's officially Fall. If that means it's getting colder, I can certainly concur. I've been choosing to wear more denim trousers, cozy hats and long-sleeved tops & jackets to try to combat it.
Now, I hear you on the photo roll - 12 shots of me in a maybe-planned/maybe-not-planned pumpkin-coloured seat, in between a pair of seat-coloured pumpkins could be considered overkill. But what if I told you that that perfect Fall sweater was beautifully crafted by my friend Peter and the pumpkins were grown in my Grandma's garden? (I'll post more when we're closer to Halloween.)

5 Month Birthday

Firstly, thank you in advance for all your kind birthday wishes and chewable presents. I'll be honest, the thought of being another month older was a little daunting this morning. Not to mention the fact that it's been donkeys since my first two toofs came in, and they've attracted no company. 
I was greeted this morning with a french dog puppet as a present - his ears are very flappy, but seriously, I didn't understand a word he said.

My Westender Interview

I just wanted to let you know that my interview was printed in the current issue of The Westender on Thursday. By all means pick up a copy, or read it online in the My Digs section.
Press coverage always makes me a little nervous because it's like a box of chocolates... - but everyone at the paper was great, and I'd like to think it came off well. Thanks again to everyone for the gifts that made my room as comfy as it is. It made moving so much easier.

Photography Week 19

Another international week and I barely needed to move. Had breakfast with a new friend from Peru, then had dinner with another new friend from Costa Rica. There were also some meals with some familiar faces from Ontario, Victoria and SanFran thrown in there for good measure.
In addition, I was interviewed and photographed last Thursday by The Westender weekly newspaper. The interview will be in this week's paper which comes out on Thursday Oct 2nd. I know what you're thinking, but I assure you, this new found exposure will not go to my head. (FYI: When the article is online, I'll be sure to have my PA post it.)

Photography Week 18

Another week of photos... It seems like time just keeps ticking on by, like it's on some sort of strict schedule. "Relax Mr. Time" I say.
That reminds me, I hung out with Grandad Bailey last week - quite a character. Among our long talks, we briefly broached the subject of time, and 'the grand past' (like my 4 month birthday seems as though it was forever ago, or like when I didn't know how to roll). He told me "History does not repeat itself. Historians repeat each other." I thought that was clever.
I started thinking, I would make a pretty good historian: I remember the old days (or the period that some people refer to as "May"), I even have the odd artifact from those times, I tell a good story, and apparently I'm quite fond of "quotation marks".

"Great" Party!

I was back in Victoria last weekend for my Great Grandma Gammy's 90th - it was a lovely affair. My two regular Grandmas were there aswell - it was like a Grandmafest. (I'm guessing that to get Great status you have to run some sort of crazy labyrinth-type obstacle course with snakes and fire and stuff.)
I can only assume that the 90 is for 90 months, which seems like a long time, hence the big celebration. People ate several types of cakes and pies, drank teas and coffees while I stuck to my old faithful of milk and bubbles. Here's to all the 90 month olds!

Photography Week 17

These are a little late for last week's photos, but as I've said since my beginning - better late than never (even if it's 11 days). Please don't be alarmed by some of the tricks documented here - I've done all the proper training. Just so you know, they say that holding my feet in my hands at this age takes 3 times the concentration that that guy at Granville Island needs to ride an 8 foot unicycle while juggling a chainsaw, a bowl of hot chili and a live chicken. I'm just saying...
I've also started break dancing classes.

Photography Week 16

Pinch, Punch, first day of the month! (Love that one.) So this was a pretty slow week for photography around these parts - the good news is, I'm another week older, regardless. Speaking of which, I was downtown yesterday, just out and about, and I saw this tiny baby at another table doing the old 'stoneface, pause, smile' routine. Seriously? I'm rolling my r's, chuckling, growing teeth, being enormous and rolling around on the floor like a Jr. Fireman at a summer day camp over here. I even lie on my back and adorably hold my own hands like a seal pup for goodness' sake.
Don't get me wrong, I'm pro-baby. I just think that as a group, we could work a little harder sometimes. Although, as the old saying goes, 'be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still'.

Photography Week 15

Most of this last week was spent in Qualicum with family. The weather was generally questionable with sunny breaks, but the family was top notch. Then on the weekend we went to Buntzen Lake near Port Moody for some further fun in sun. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's the ocean or a lake, the water's always cold.

two toofs

Not sure if you can see them here, but I've got two teeth breaking the surface. (Note: if you follow these incredible updates via email and want to see entries a little more clearly, you can always click the grey ** dublin's days ** in your email and that will take you to the site.) To be honest, I don't really see the point of teeth, other than their obvious use as weapons - and at the moment, my well-honed erratic ninja skills already have me covered. Giving me teeth is just unfair to potential opposition ninjas.
Now, I know what you're thinking, and yes, at first I was thinking I've got to find myself a sweet set of grills for these bad boys. But then my cousin Leo was telling me of this mysterious tooth buyer who is happy to take them off your hands when they fall out - sometimes for as much as $5. So I'm thinking, we get a few of us together, learn a little more about tooth growing, and set us up a bit of an operation - a grow op of sorts. Let me know if you want in.

Big Shots

I had my first round of shots last week - that was something. Needles aren't fun whichever way you slice it. Can't they put that stuff in a pill, or a cool new flavour of ChupaChups or something? I mean, the needle in it's current form must have been invented when God was a boy - all I'm asking for is a little advancement. Although, it puts my mind at ease to know that I'm taking steps to avoid the experience of diphtheria, haemophilus, pneumococcal and its cousin meningcoccal. These things were obviously named by dinosaurs. 
In terms of my latest stats, I'm 17lbs 6oz, and I'm 25 1/4 inches tall. I have slipped a couple of points in terms of percentiles, but what I've lost, I've more than made up for in experimental Judo skillz.  
(Disclaimer: there's a little nudity in this last round of photography - just trying out some different stuff.)

Thursday, August 14, 2008


So I've noticed the Olympics have started - so far, pretty interesting. Although I have to admit, I don't understand how some of the events made it passed the OEFD (The Olympic Event Filtration Department). I mean water polo? That's just too many games thrown together in a pool...

((polo - horses) + basketball + (lacrosse • .4)) • swimming pool = water polo

I mean why stop there? Why not have Water Archery Boxing? It could be called Warchering and take place in a water-filled ring. I'm kidding of course - that would be ridiculous. However, I'm not sure if anyone has seen my Feeding Feet performances? That could be an event. Competitors find a lady, latch, eat and stay balanced, all the while running through your well-rehearsed routine with your legs. They could even have pairs. Just something to think about.

And while we're on the subject... let's be honest, those Chinese gymnasts are barely older than I am.

"...go shawty, it's your birthday..."

That's right, today was my 3 month birthday (and yes, I listen to gangsta rap on occasion). Where does the time go? My Dad was gone for what seemed like an eternity (although, I admit at times I appreciated the break from his antics), but he brought me back this styling blue hat for my birthday so that's something. 
It seems that birthday or not, whenever I go a short time without seeing someone, our next meeting includes a present. If this ritual is common protocol, I would like to know the exact amount of time that is required to pass, in order to bring about such an offering. In addition, I would like to throw it out there that I'm looking for someone to help me develop a perfectly timed visitation schedule in order to maximize the benefit of this custom - any doubles I get are yours.

Photography Week 11 & 12

Wow, time flies (how does that Marx saying go... Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana). I can't believe I've been back from the continent for 2 weeks now. First off, I apologize for the number of seemingly repeated photos here - you know how stylists and photographers are - every pose tells a different story etc etc. 
The last couple of weeks have been good: I spent a fair amount of time in some clothes I have now grown into (I'm still carrying a little holiday weight), continued satisfying my many social obligations, started getting ready for the new soccer season, and am now just packing for the next week in Victoria. The Island will be nice, it seems like things were getting busy for a while over here - time to kick back.

Down Time

If there's one thing I appreciate after a long day, it's being able to talk about things to someone who can relate. That's why I really enjoyed my time with Isabella the other evening - we got through some really important stuff. As you can see here though, we hit a bit of a roadblock when trying to explain some of our findings to our mothers. By the end of our time, we agreed that although they usually mean well, sometimes parents just don't understand.

South of France - Weeks 9 & 10 Photography

(Please forgive me if my new accent is a little hard to understand - I'm told it will wear off.)
First off, I think I've got planes figured out. From what I can tell, everyone loads into this huge bus called a "plane" and sits there for hours and hours while outside, they redesign the surroundings, bring in extras who sound, act & look different and then quickly change the weather. Fewer changes... less time in the plane... got it.
France was just lovely. The first week was with 14 wonderful family members in a beautiful villa in Velleron - great weather, tasty food, loads of French people and good spirits. The second week was 7 of us in Nice and Villefranche. It was nice to be on the coast - great view, good coffee & pastries, very relaxing. And it was so great to be with Brad and Angie during their special time - quality people.
All in all I have to say, France is definitely one of my top two counties so far.

Call it a Comeback

I hope everyone's had a wonderful couple of weeks - it's so nice to be home. It may not look like it, but I want to assure you that this is really me writing. I know you probably have some initial doubts, but the difference is I have done some serious growing over the 2 weeks away and, as you can see, I'm now proper tanned. More photos on their way.

4th of July

Just wanted to say happy Independence Day to all my friends South of the border. It's a pretty big year for you guys: I was born, I broke my arm, I managed to break through the tricky 14 lbs 3 oz barrier, and it's election year.
I've been staying fairly current on the candidates, and let's just say I'm undecided.
Off to the airport this afternoon. By the time I get back, I'll have spent 20% of my life in France. I wonder if I'll come back with an accent, or just an appreciation for good wine - we shall see. Au revoir.

Liefé Quârdt

So I'm pretty sure I know what I want to be when I'm older. That's right... a Life Guard! I mean it cost $10.99 and this body to become a Jr. Lifeguard, and people seem pret-ty impressed. I figure, maybe the regular Lifeguard shirt costs a bit more, but will surely be worth it.
I'm off to the South of France on Friday - should be a good break. I understand there are a number of special beaches in the South of France. I wonder if they need any Jr. Lifeguards. I bet 'Life Guard' sounds even better in French: Liefé Quârdt?

Photography Week 7

This week was pretty busy: baths, baileyboys outfit, hanging out with the wee ninja and the bee, holding stuff, impressing the ladies, hitting the beach and band practice. Part of me longs for those carefree days of my youth.

Thursday, June 26, 2008

On the Town

I had my first proper night on the town last night. What a festive atmo - the scene, the noise, the peeps, the drinks, the fashion, the music, the ladies... We all got together to wish Shay a happy birthday - I can't remember how old he is, probably mid-thirties, maybe circling forty? Certainly older than me anyway.

Careless Whisper

This is obviously a shot of me doing a cover of the popular Wham! classic. I'm not saying I'm a huge fan of George Michael - but it's impossible to deny the power of that bridge.
Truth be told, I'm thinking of putting together a bit of a band myself. We'll probably be semi-pop alternative (at least at the beginning), but I'm still sorting out the line-up - if you know of anyone, do let me know. In the meantime, if you think of any good names, write them in the comments section (unfortunately The Maybe Babies is already taken - sometimes there's no comfort in the truth).

This is my impersonation of a small sleeping bear (in sweatpant shorts).
So I was on Vancouver Island on the weekend, in Victoria - good place, nice people. I must have met like 40 new people, half of whom are apparently related to me. Turns out I have absolutely no say in the matter.
Yesterday I went to see the doc again - quite a series of tests. He told me the arm is almost as good as new and is progressing nicely. In terms of stats, I'm 12 lbs 12 oz, 2 feet long, have a normal sized head, but am in the 97th percentile for weight and height. Big... like a bear.
Speaking of bears, what do you call a bear with no ears? A 'b'. I know, I know... 'Hey did I ever tell you I was born with a broken humorous?' C'mon, that's good stuff...

Thursday, June 12, 2008


Just a quick update before I head off to bed. Weighed in at 12lbs 2oz today - feels good.
I've overheard that we have plans to go to an island of some sort this weekend. Not sure which one exactly - if I had my druthers I'd choose Ibiza, although that seems highly unlikely.

1 Month Old

Well, I suppose it's official - I'm 1 month old today.
It feels like only yesterday I was kicking back, having a bite and watching reruns on WombTV. Those were pretty relaxing times.
This last month has been pretty active - the last few days especially. We're out and about all the time, trying new foods, meeting new people and driving around in what can only be described as the Family Racing Car.
I thought the chilly days of May were behind us, but it seems that June is one of the colder months (hence the sweatshirt). Perhaps I'll see snow for the first time.
Thanks for all the kind wishes and fan mail - I couldn't have done it without you.

Friday, June 6, 2008


Last Sunday, I made my first venture out to a proper dining establishment with some friends - which was lovely. We all met at Coco et Olive (which, I believe is French for Coco and Olive) - I think my parents are preparing me for our trip to France in 4 weeks.
We started talking food of course, and I was shocked to learn that the milk people use for cereal and coffee and cooking and general drinking is actually from Cows. Cows!? It seemed I was the only one at the table that found this strange. My first question was whether we had a deal with the cows where we did tradesies... apparently not. Am I the only one who thinks it's madness to go out for milk (from the body of a cow no less) when you've got a perfectly good source at home? It's messed up.
Just to keep you posted, I weighed in at 11lbs 10oz yesterday. By all accounts, I'm ginormous.

May Weekend

I had a pretty nice little Saturday, it has to be said. Met a nice lady... which was lovely. It seemed that despite a couple of differences (she's got a good 6 months on me), we had quite a bit in common. Devan's adventurous, bold and enjoys photography and the odd beverage. We talked a little about parents and family, and how we couldn't believe May was already behind us. Both of us seem to have big plans for June - we agreed to compare notes mid-month to see how we're coming along. 

Friday, May 30, 2008

For serious

I know that I haven't had a huge amount of big picture experience, or the benefits of a 'traditional' upper class education, but that felt like a poor reason to not start using my influence for the causes that really matter.
Let's talk a little about Peace - as far as I can tell it seems like a pretty cool concept. I know as well as anyone, life - gets - busy. Faxes, emails, entertaining, travel, always being 'on' - you're preaching to the choir. But we all have little opportunities to make a peaceful difference. 
This is a picture of me at a DANCE PEACE RALLY in my bedroom - you should have been there, it was powerful (next time).
Remember, Love rules without rules. Peace!

2 functional arms?

What a morning! This morning I went to see some professional blue people at my old stomping ground - The Hospitall right. They wanted to see how my broken arm was healing. Doc unwrapped the splint, had a look, and was seemingly bored with how well it was coming along. His instructions were to 'use it like you do your other arm'. It's a little crooked, but he assured my parents that it will be perfect, and we won't even remember which arm it was.  
For nostalgia, we shared a moment looking at my x-rays from when I was an hour old - if I could only talk to that little guy, and reassure him that everything was gonna be fine. 
We have to go back in 3 months to ensure there's no nerve damage, but I told him that 3 months from now, I'll probably be too busy signing autographs for my sweet guitar playing.  
When we got back, I had my first proper bath, sans splint. It was actually kinda rad - I have no issues with the water.

My first photos on May 10th

Tuesday, May 27, 2008


I forgot to mention that we had a lovely family stroll around the block a couple of days ago. To be honest I slept for most of it, but the parts I remember, I found to be quite refreshing. (Check out my sweet hoody from my man Keith. And yes, those are pandas on my feet - just doing my part to raise awareness.)
My GrandmaBon is over today, which is lovely. And there was another Jen here yesterday who helped my Mum. Imagine... 2 Jens - madness. I've noticed that Dad has disappeared during the day, the last 2 days. Strange that - can't imagine what he's up to.
I'm told that tomorrow we head back to the hospital for the blue people to look at my arm again. This will be my second x-ray in less than 3 weeks (I sure hope they're covering my bits when they take those). I'll let you know how it goes.

Monday, May 26, 2008

In the beginning...

So far it's been a wild ride to say the least. I had a rough couple of days 2 weekends ago, but got to know a bunch of my family a little better, and made some lovely new friends. (It seems that people are forever traveling with gifts - I swear I haven't met a single person without one.)
I should really start by saying thank you to everyone. I've had some wonderful help during this vital time of development. People are helping feed my parents (and therefore me), I've got a lovely wardrobe already, and have talked to a lot of interesting new friends.
In terms of an update, I'm eating and sleeping, screaming and burping, pooping and thinking, staring and kicking, and meeting and greeting. I was born 10lbs 3oz, but at today's weigh-in ceremony I managed to pack on another pound! I'm pretty sure my arm is on the mend - although I don't ever worry about it as it seems my parents do more than enough for all of us.
On the subject of 'the parentals', they seem pretty nice - although at times they're a little slow on the uptake (I don't think they get enough sleep).
More soon, at the moment I fancy a bite...
