February Family Photoshoot

Since it would be quite a while before Othy, our kids, and I would be back in Canada for a visit, our larger family decided to capture our time together by hiring a photographer for some outdoor family photos. So on a cold, sunny February day we went out to a park in St. Catharines. We were lucky that there was no wind because it was cold even without it. Credit goes to Michelle Sypkes for taking the formal shots. I took a few informal ones in between. I’m glad we braved the cold and snow for these lovely photos.

Moses at 12 months

How is Moses a year old already!? This month he started walking with more confidence. He now enjoys sweeping standing up and walking around the house with his toothbrush and toothpaste in hand. Two more bottom teeth came in bringing them to a total of 8! Moses got sick with Rubella this month which was his first bigger illness and caused our first worry as parents. For his birthday we cooked up a storm and invited a bunch of friends over to celebrate. It is hard to believe that our sturdy and increasingly independent one year old was once the small and fragile wide-eyed baby who came into our lives one year ago!

Moses at 7 Months

This month Moses is army crawling like a pro. He army crawls into every room in the house and likes to be where we are! He can also army crawl with a toy in each hand. He has not yet discovered how to crawl on all fours but gets close when he climbs over our legs when we sit with him on the play mat. He enjoys playing with the empty water jugs and Papa’s white charger. We recently bought him wooden ring stack and he enjoys taking it apart and throwing, rolling, and banging the pieces. He already knows how to give high fives and kisses and gives us kisses at random if we are laying at this level on the play mat!

The Congo River 2.0

This past weekend we went and visited a tourist site further down the Congo river with our friends Dadys and Felicité. It is the same place we visited with them in 2018 when we visited Kinshasa before our marriage. It was just as lovely as the last time and it felt so good to get some air and spend some time in nature. Moses enjoyed it too! Now we have some nice family photos! This week also marks one year of us being in Kinshasa!

Moses at 6 Months

Moses is 0 1/2 years old! Where did the time go? This month he has learned how to sit like a pro, and right at the end of the month he started scooting longer distances and making his way around the living room. Watch out world! He likes to grab at everything (including our faces, glasses, hair) and pass toys from one hand to another or swing them around. He is also developing some quirky habits and we are beginning to see his personality come out!

Moses at 5 Months

This month has seen many big changes! Moses is sleeping in his own room in a bigger crib and sleeping mostly through the night. He spends most of his time on his stomach (of his own accord!), and is rotating and army crawling trying to follow his toy ball or my foam roller. He was also showing so much interest in food that we decided to start feeding him solids. He makes funny faces at first but really enjoys it!
