Chester at 5:30 am on his 3 month birthday!

The Chester Diaries: Celebrating the feast and famine known as new motherhood.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Lara and I gave birth in April, 2010 to a baby boy. I've been calling him "Chester" since he was a little chestnut in my tummy. To commemorate his three month birthday, I wanted to write about the crazy, joyous and exhausting ride I've been having as a first-time mom. If you're interested in reading about the highs and lows of uncharted mommy territory as well as my unhealthy obsession with shopping, (particularly baby gear), reviews, and pop culture observations, then you've come to the right place. Be warned: This cute kid has a mommy who can be a bit of a potty mouth.

Note: This blog is no longer active but please enjoy Chester's journey from 3 months to 2+ years.

Take a look at apx. 26 seconds.  It lasts for quite awhile.  I am very worried.


April 26, 2011

Chester has been shaking his head side to side in a troubling manner. It appears involuntary. It started around April 18th. It usually happens when he is eating in his high chair. I only saw him do this once, sitting on the couch. Here are some videos I took today, April 26, 2011. I am dating this 2010 so it doesn't appear at the top of this blog.

See at apx. 9 seconds.
