Three Things...

Three things going on with each of us at the moment...

Q (7 and a half months)
1. He has grown out of his bucket carseat and we've installed the bigger one.  He likes being higher up and can see out of the window now.

2. Now that Q is eating solid foods, his presence in a restaurant requires a bit more work now. I wrote this post about taking kids out to eat and I need to review it!  We're getting the hang of it again. 
3. Q is also sitting up in the grocery cart.  I had this cover for E and kept it for Q.  See the resemblance between the two.


1. Soccer started this week.  He is on the Sprinkles team this year (remember all of the teams are named after Tim Horton's donuts) and they are in the purple jerseys.

2. E's biking has really improved and I feel more confident that he can stop and make the turns.  There are a few large hills in our area that we try to avoid for now.
3. E had show and tell this week (it was actually last week but I forgot about it), and they were to talk about their favourite holiday.  He chose Halloween because he likes the costumes and candy.  He brought his Captain America shield (his costume from last year), and his Spiderman (what he wants to be next year).  

1. We have had a leak in our basement since about January.  The water would come in between the old part of the house and the new extension.  Anyway, long story short, Dave dug a hole on the outside of the house and then patched the leak and the problem seems to be fixed.  It is a relief to not have to worry every time it rains.
2. There was also a leak in the roof of the shed and he fixed that too.
3. He also has his annual golf trip coming up.  This year they are going to Nova Scotia, not PEI, and golfing at Fox Harb'r a couple of times and some other courses.

1. We have been getting The Star delivered for free from Thursday to Saturday for the last couple of weeks.  I don't know when it will stop but I am enjoying doing the crossword puzzles.  I used to get the Globe and Mail delivered on Saturdays but I never really had time to read it and then I would just throw it out.
2. Watching the Bachelorette.  I've got to say, they do a good job of creating reasons for me to keep coming back.  This year is the first black bachelorette and she is adorable.
3. Working out in High Park.  Our exercise class has outdoor classes now and I love it.  I went on Monday and Wednesday and ran there with Q in the running stroller.

  1. Q does look quite proud to be in his new car seat! And I love the comparison photos of E and Q in the grocery cart! Both such happy boys!
