My favourite one is the last one :) AND, seeing as I still can't take great pictures... I was quite ecstatic when I got into my car this morning to come to work and Jeff left the registration card for the camera course he signed me up for in September! Happy Anniversary!

Then it was off to Grandma and Nono's where he picked flowers, went for a walk in his barefeet, played cars, then for a lonnnng nap, and when he woke up Sofia was there! So they chased each other, went swimming, had Nono's homemade soup for supper, had a bath and then off to bed for another marathon sleep (well, until 5 at which point Grandma had to get up and sleep on the floor beside him, where they both slept till 7).
So Grandma is bringing him straight to daycare this morning and hopefully I will be home at some point tonight so I can squeeze the lights out of him. I miss my little boy something terrible! Jeff and I talked about him so much while we were away from him. I love that he's so resilient and easy to adapt to changes around him or it would have made this weekend that much harder.
I have 4 more days of work and then first thing Friday morning we'll get in the car and drive to see Gram-Grammie in New Brunswick. We'll stay the night there and then continue on to PEI for the next two weeks. We are sooooooooooooo looking forward to it.

These are his cousins (L to R: Ethan, Grant, Sofia, Carson, Maya, Isabelle)
Carson was the only one not super happy about sitting all together on the swing. It's kind of funny, the pictures start out with him quite upset, then he's okay for a little bit and then he gets mad again. But besides the picture taking, we had a great afternoon!

Height: 33 1/4 inches (but we all know how accurate the measurements of height are! When they are two they stand up to get measured which will be way more accurate)
He screamed. And he screamed. This was just when the doctor was examining him. It's never been this bad. I think he screamed louder then I've ever heard him. It was heartbreaking. I got the immunizations too, I voiced my desire to stagger them but asked his opinion and he said it doesn't really matter, there's no data to show it's beneficial to stagger them. Plus, he said no more needles until he's 4. So I figured if I got them done today, I don't have to worry about them for another 2+years. He screamed when he got the needles. I think it was more the nurse then the actual needle though (she was super nice, I just mean the fact that a stranger was coming that close to him, same with the doctor).
He's growing well, perfect growth curve, perfect vocabulary for his age, I answered "yes" to all the questions asked (without lying, I promise!).
Thank goodness no more appts for a while... until he turns 2! Which I suppose isn't all that far away....

Today he seemed to be stalling a bit, so when I asked him to pick out what he wanted to bring to bed with him, he picked the two biggest things he could carry.
I'm also proudly reporting that he can identify a square, a heart and a star in his shapes book. Wednesday I took him outside in the rain and he looked at the woman across the street and said umbrella. Loud and clear. It's amazing how many words he can say, and every day one just pops out. He's picking up on everything we say these days.
Thursday morning he woke up crying and when Jeff went into his room he was pointing at his change table saying bum bum bum. Sure enough he had a diaper full of bad stuff!

There goes my stress about how/when to take away his bottle!
Until last night. He was sobbing for his bottle. So I went and filled it up for him, he was so happy, which made me happy.
Tonight after exhuasting himself at Chapters with the Thomas the Train table, he didn't want his bottle again. I figure I'll let him call the shots and let us know when he does and doesn't want it. Like everything else, he will wean himself off when he's good and ready. I just don't like seeing 2+ year olds with bottles hanging out of their mouths (my feeling about soothers as well, thank goodness Carson only took one for about a month).

Here are a few pictures from Canada Day....
And some from today....
We got him this Sand and Water table (50% off, I love sales!) and he loves the boats. If you ask him to show someone the boats he beelines for the table and holds up a boat very proudly!
And here's a video of him blowing a kiss. I wish I knew how to edit videos to cut out certain parts. He doesn't perform well in front of the camera, he gets shy (just like his mommy!)
