Rise and Shine

 Every morning, my little guy opens his eyes and gives me his widest and brightest smiles of the day.
 It's so heart-meltingly sweet.  I never want to forget it.

Three Snaps

Someone just learned how to eat their feet.
Someone likes to help Dada do the math.
Someone got bigger winter boots!

Kitchen Sinky

The best thing that's ever been in our sink!
We have a baby tub but I thought we'd keep it simple tonight and try out the kitchen sink.  Chase is learning to love his bath and starting to kick and splash.  So sweet!
Pleased as punch!

Lil' Turkey

I had to put a little olive oil on Chase's scalp to loosen his cradle cap, and the easiest way to do it was with a basting brush!
 "Are you serious, Mom?"
 I just wanted to gobble up my little turkey.
 Sorry, baby.  This won't be the last of your mama's silly ideas!

House Progress

On our way to check out the house.  I was admiring my new make-up case (the only time I have to do my make-up is in the car!)
Chay-Chay was concentrating on Tingalayo the Donkey.

  The surprise this week was that the countertop is installed!  I'm loving the light colour...we've had dark counters for years and it's time for a change.
The stairs were stained but not urethaned.

We also bought our appliances and I couldn't help but do one of my crappy mock-ups in MS Paint:
Who needs Photoshop?  Ha!

Happy Trails

Our little cowpoke, showing off some new duds. He looks so cool!
Thank you, aunts, uncles and cousins!

V-Day Anniversary Lunch

Celebrated 8 years together - and one especially wonderful year - by re-creating last year's festivities in a baby-friendly way.
Our first restaurant lunch as a family of three.

The best part?  A beautiful baby - who was just a wish last year - here in the flesh. 
Little Cupid slept the whole time!

My Little Man

Beautiful shot taken by my mom and enhanced by my uncle.  Thanks, guys!

New kitchen is in!

What a thrill to see our cabinets installed in the new house.  Super relieved our colour choice is a winner!

Bye Bye B-Town

We'll sure miss our walks around the waterfront!

 Where Chase took his first stroll back in November.
