Hold on tight

It's going to be a L-O-N-G ride.....the Social Worker contacted me on Monday stating that she wanted to meet with Hubby and I to get the paper work for number 2 started. After I had to reapply! Anyways, this is going to be a long process as we have to do PRIDE training and aren't signed up until the spring.....is it even winter yet?

The boy is doing so well.....growing, talking and laughing up a storm. He's figured out pronouns and now says "I", "yours", "mine" and "he"......he starts toilet training on November 18....he'll be 30 months then and I think it's about time! Plus, he hates wearing a diaper....oh....here he comes, here comes my slappy feet!


Thoughtful Thursdays

Our newest niece sure is growing fast....and since her Zia Jo-Jo has only seen her once, she's not use the to papparazzi her sisters and cousins are used to SOOOO when the flash of my camera blinks onto her face, I get a picture like this.....so cute



Robert Munsch is a favourite author in our home. We have a large collection of his stories, that include Angela's Airplane, Murmel, Murmel, Aaron's Hair, Paper Bag Princess and many more. Adrien's daycare centre introduced us to Mortimer....and we read it EVERY night.....E.V.E.R.Y N.I.G.H.T We have gotten to the point when he "reads" the story and starts it correctly, with "One night...." He LOVES the story so much and tries to do different voices and has named all the different people in the story!
CONFESSION TIME: I posted a post over a year ago confessing that I don't read enough to my child. Then, over the summer I became worried that his speech wasn't progressing as quickly as his peers....his teacher recommended that I read to him, her assuming that I did....and I did....sometimes....but after that it became part of our bedtime routine...He gets 2 sometimes 3 or 4 books before bed.....and honestly, within a week, he had his first language burst....I don't know if it was due to the reading or because he was ready.....but his language continues to grow, using three to 5 word sentences... part of it could be the reading and the other part is that I am no longer accepting one word answers....I pretend I don't know what he is saying.....last night, at bed time, he asked my a question and I responded with absolutely....a few minutes later, I asked him a question to which he appropriately responded "ab so lucy"....love that boy!

A little bit of everything

Adrien has recently become aware of arts and crafts and animals.....it seems his current favourite animal is the tiger.....he roars like a tiger, he crawls around like a tiger, he calls lions tigers.....it's all about the tiger! He and I were playing one day when he found a pen....and proceeded to draw tiger stripes on his face....he was quite proud of himself and kept telling me how cute he was....and of course I had to agree, he was one cute tiger...well Rob came home and saw the ink on his son's face and I thought he was going to freak out....asking me if I knew that our son could get ink poisioning from the drawing and how was I ever going to get it off of his skin.....his face of all places....I just kept laughing, not trying to upset Rob but at how concerned he was.....folks, if my child was going to get ink poisioning from the pen on his skin, there would have to be a warning of the package of pens....when in fact the package has no such warning....so until it does, I will continue to write on my own skin allow my son to write on him!

My brother and sister in law have four of the most beautiful daughters in the world....and as you can image, they have accummulated A LOT of toys and kids stuff. They generously gave Adrien a children's Cailou pull out couch....he was THRILLED! (that's putting it mildly!) He insisted to listen to his bed time stories on it....so I put the couch on the bed and he sat on while I read to him. When the stories where done, he wanted to sleep on it....who am I to agrue...it's not a big deal, so I pulled the could out, put his pillow in it, covered him up and he fell a sleep so fast! He lastest one night and hasn't asked to sleep in it since! Though he plays with it all the time!

My nephew got a monkey Blabla (http://www.blablakids.com/Online-Shopping/Classic-blablas) that he loves......so my mom bought Adrien a Blabla for himself, though it is not the trademarked one, Adrien calls it Blabla and sleeps with him every night....he tells him stories and talks to him as he falls asleep....I think it's so cute that my kid sleep with a stuffie.....and that he has a friend who lets him do all the talking (I could use a friend like that! lol)
