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Note: This blog is no longer active but please enjoy Chester's journey from 3 months to 2+ years.

16 months!

Chester turned 16 months old today. Here are some pictures of him this morning.

Chillin in his toddler chair this afternoon.

Mr. Muffet on his tuffet.

Time to get outta dodge.

Over the last few months, his hair is becoming incredibly curly in the back!

He's loving his playroom.

Of course, not as much as he loves mummy's iPad. He even knows how to unlock the darn thing. Hopefully he won't get ahold of my iTunes password and put me in the poorhouse!
