Niko: I’m a big boy in a big boy stroller. 🙂

This was Niko’s first time enjoying the view from his stroller as he was meant to: sitting up and looking forward (despite the fact that his straps are a little loose). Up until now he’s been cruising in his car seat: looking skyward with the seat clipped into the stroller. But at six months he seems ready for the new view and this easy access to his toys!

Niko is now learning or doing something new everyday. Among other “milestones”, shrieking seems to tickle his fancy and reigns high at the top of his daily to-do list.

Mommy: What a beautiful voice you have Niko!


It’s winter. We live in a second floor condo. We have a one year old standard poodle named Frasier. He has lots of energy. This combination of factors would usually be a recipe for a pretty rambunctious puppy, but I think all in all Frasier is a wonderful pooch and overall very well behaved. Seeing as we don’t have a yard at our current abode, I  try to get him out with Niko for at least one good run/walk during the day.

My friend Traci also has a huge dog (yellow lab named Buddy) and a baby, so she too likes to burn some of that dog’s pent up energy. It turns out that Buddy and Frasier are great playmates, and so are Niko and her son Eli. About once a week we get our entourages together and bring the pooches to a park near Traci’s house and let them run and romp to their hearts’ content (followed up by a celebratory pizza at Traci’s place). And we sort of look like this: two black belt mommies (yes, Traci was my karate partner in crime) pushing their two sons in three wheel strollers, accompanied by two large breed dogs leashed around our waists. Once we get to the park it’s leashes off and “Go Puppies Go”! (See short video by clicking on the link to the left.)
