Squinty Eyes

This silly kiddo can make me laugh when I need to most! For the last 6 months or so he's made this face when we say "squinty eyes". We think it started as his way of winking at us! He now has taken it to a new extreme putting his entire body into the action! He cracks me up.

This is also a really good shot of his chipped teeth!

He also slept through the night without any problem last night! Sprawled across Shea's side of the bed while dad slept in the living room! Oh my! What has our world come to! Tonight he's in his crib!

Busy Weekend

This was one of the most busy weekends we've had since Ian was born! One activity after another...kept him out until 9PM last night! We NEVER do that...and won't do it again soon! Although he did sleep completely through the night.

I did get this great picture of he and my dear friend Becky. He got to spend the entire weekend outside with his Team In Training friends so he was a happy little guy!

A Day Out With Thomas

Ian and I ventured out to see Thomas the Tank Engine on Friday! I was sooo excited about it for him and for me!

As soon as we pulled into the parking lot I think he new something special was happening. He squealed with delight just with my opening the van door...and the fun hadn't even begun!

The plan had been to meet Charleen and Leo and ride the bus from the parking lot to the train together. But...when Ian saw the first bus leave without him on it he broke into tears! I couldn't bear to see him watch another bus pass so we hopped on. He oohed and ahhed and said bus about 50 times. He sat in the seat on his own and didn't even attempt a wiggle.

the bus ride

We met up with Charleen and Leo and got to see Thomas in the station and then climbed on board for the ride. (must add they really didn't understand the standing in the long line to wait to get on...but I don't either so...) I just have to say the bus ride was his highlight! He liked the train and the entertainment and the company, but he LOVED the bus. We hung around after the train ride and stamped, played with trains, got a tattoo, played in the sandbox and the really dirty water fishing game. BUT the bus was where it was at!

I'm taking more $1.25 city bus trips with him!

Happy Mother's Day

I can't believe that this is my second mother's fact today I used the words "next year when he goes to preschool" How did this happen?

For the last two years I've had an amazing group of women in my life who have helped provide perspective, advice, confidence, and friendship. I am a better mother because of you all and certainly couldn't have made it through some tough times without your patience and support! Ian will appreciate it someday! I made this silly little video for Valentine's Day and had a bit of an issue getting it to you all! it finally is! Enjoy = ) And thank you for being my friends!

(and thank you Mom...all of the above applies to you too)
(and thank you Sarah for all the trips to Selland with and without child)
