Baby Olympics!

 There are the OLMPIC Olympics, the Paralympics, the Special Olympics, and now... BABY OLYMPICS!


In the spirit of the Olympics, a few of Fraser's closest peers came representing a culture of their background, and the games were on!

Representing CANADA: Nico!


Representing Scotland (simply because blue and white were the only colours other than pink that she owns!) : Hope!


Representing Finland: Desmond!


Annnnnd representing the Netherlands: Fraser!


(Side note: Fraser's little soccer jersey is actually FROM the Netherlands... thank you Nana & Papa!)

 LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Crawling race to the cheerios/baby mum mums...


Hope & Fraser tied for first...


(Another side note: Fraser started army crawling just in time for his 10-month birthday, and in the 3 weeks since, he has begun regular crawling, pulling himself to a stand, clapping, waving, signing "more", and making all sorts of noises. We can practically SEE the wheels in his head turning as he's taking everything in and learning sooo much.)

But I digress. Back to the olympics...

CHEERIO GRAB...


I'd say it was a four-way tie (although Fraser DID sort of hover above the stash and hoard handfuls)...


We had other activities on the list (diaper changing contest, first giggler when tickled, who imitated a clap first etc), but we got a bit of a late start and the babes (and mamas) were starting to get hangry. I guess that's what happens when you get a bunch of babies and mamas together... nothing quite goes as scheduled! ;)

The gold medals went to... EVERYONE!


 After the medal ceremony, lunch was had by one and all. The mamas had a potluck lunch with foods from their backgrounds, and it was an astoundingly delicious spread if I do say so myself....


Thus concludes Baby Olympics 2012... can hardly wait until winter Toddler Olympics in 2014!
