A first and a funny

Christian's first drawing that actually looks like a drawing....

he also comes out with some pretty cute/funny things these days. Here's one of his recent, said as we were having fish and chips for dinner the other night:

"Remember that day when I were (sic) squeezing ketchup all by myself, without any help? I loved that day."

oh, if only life were so simple now...

Can you see the difference??

Just for fun, I decided to match up some pictures of Christian and Jacqueline at similar ages and poses. Although there are definitely differences between them, it's amazing how alike they look.

a few days old in the carseat. Christian is on the left.

They have almost identical expressions here....(in case you couldn't tell by the floral outfit, Jacqueline is on the left) They are both about a month old.

Approximately 7/8 weeks. Christian looks a bit more devilish in this one (he's on the left)

And this one just for fun....each of them after having a Gentian Violet treatment (for thrush). Christian's lips were much more purple. I got smart with Jacqueline and applied vaseline to her lips/mouth so the purple wouldn't stain as much.

Birth Announcement

Finally got around to placing a birth announcement in The Toronto Star last Saturday. A copy of it is posted below.

Centre Island

Tuesday after Labor day, Hugo took the day off and we all headed over to Centre Island It was a beautiful, clear, hot day. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the ferry terminal, we discovered that Centreville was closed after labor day. Since we'd already paid for parking, we decided to head over anyway. We visited Far Enough Farm, and Christian enjoyed seeing the animals there, particularly the turkeys and the peacocks. He also had a blast "driving" the big tractor

After we had our picnic lunch, we walked across the bridge and through the gardens, Christian stopping to smell the flowers along the way. On the other side, we found a splash pad and playground, and Christian had a ball running through the sprinklers:

So despite our little SNAFU with the rides, it turned out to be a great day overall.
