Hello all!

Thank you so much for your patience as we attempt to keep up with these updates.

Piglet is now exactly 7 months and 7 days old.  He is 27.5 inches tall, and 18.5 pounds.  Yup. . . time flies.  (can you see my booboo face?)

He began crawling on his belly a week before his 6 month birthday, his first tooth came out the day after he turned 6 months as well as his first poopy on the toilet.   It just seemed like 6 months was a major turning point.

We celebrated by getting him his first Transformer, Softomus Prime and Bumble Bee.  They are awesome stuffed toys that actually transform.

We have been going to Mommy and Baby Yoga.  This has been awesome as Piglet just loves to crawl to everyone else’s matt to check out the other kids and their toys.  What a social piggy he is becoming.

On his 7th month birthday, to our surprise his 2nd tooth broke through, he began pulling himself up and attempting to climb up onto the bed, so we had to start shopping for a new bed for him.  We celebrated by getting him a fun play outfit.  (Pictures will be posted later)

In the past few days, he has been crawling up high on all fours, and doing a great “Downward Facing Dog” (for those of you who are yoginis), so we do believe that it won’t be long until he is walking.  Today we went on a wonderful picnic with the babies that were birthed from our Hypnobirthing Class.  They were all so beautiful.  The Moms all look fabulous as the Dads looked so proud.  We ended the day with our 3.2 mile power walk as Daddy surf it on his “Wave” board, Brisa proudly protecting Z.   Went for dinner and Z got his very first Gelato Cone from the owner of the Gelato shop.  Now he’s into Ice creams and Sorbets.. . .yikes.. . like his Mummy.

Here are a few photos just taken by one of our team on Friday.  He’s a wonderful photographer and he picked out the ones that really shows you the different expressions of Zariyan.


I can’t tell you how awesome each day is.  I thought life was pretty darn good before, but now it’s just awesome as we learn so much from Baby Z.  Everyday is a new lesson and mind blowing experience.

Much love and blessings to you all.

Daddy'OWhat an exciting week. It seems like as soon as Zariyan turned 6 months, everything started to change.

He had a monumental week last week. He’s now really starting to crawl, he can make it across the room in under 30 seconds, which can also be a problem as yesterday we turned our backs for no more than 30 seconds while he was sitting on the bed, and sure enough crawled right over the edge and landed on his head. Ouch!

We took him on a hike in his new back-pack carrier to the top of Topanga Heights to see the view over LA, yikes, it’s something else to be packing 22 extra pounds up that mountain. 🙂

He’s been eating a lot of new solid foods, from guacamole to beans, chicken liver pate, and of course all the usual baby food. This lead to the inevitable “First Solid Poop”… ouch!

Oh, and he’s going potty on the toilet now, not every time of course, but after he get’s some of Mommy’s Milk, she usually sits him on the can for a few minutes and he instinctively knows what to do.

He just weighed in at 18.2 lbs yesterday and still 26 inches, but his thighs are getting huge!

We figure in another few weeks he’ll be able to start working part time for us as our paper shredding assistant as he always looking to chew on any paper he can get his hands on. LOL

I’ve managed to find a few spare minutes to find three great photos that show some of his great facial expressions. Enjoy!
