Gardening at Grandpa's House

Apparently, Ryan didn't like to have his hands dirty. :)

Babywearing - Clemente Style

I had Adam in the Cuddlywrap and Ryan and Marc wanted in on the action.

His nickname should be "Pigpen"

Ryan had a wonderful time staying at Grandma and Grandpa's house while we were at the hospital. It's not everyday that you get to playin a pile of dirt.

Assessing the status of the lawn.
Taking the dirt to the backyard where they felt the lawn needed more work.

Some more pictures of Adam

Sometimes the future's so bright, you have to wear shades.
Showing off his cute little face.
His first bath and modelling his Jack Nicholson hair style.
Acting pensive.

Mother's Day at the Zoo

We had a great time at the zoo on Mother's Day. The weather was a little cool but all the animals were out.

Meatball's Room - A Work in Progress

We are doing a polka dot theme in Meatball's room. We aren't repainting so it is a light blue coloured wall. We bought vinyl stick on polka dots that come in a variety of sizes and colours. I really like how easy they were to use!

Here is the first part. We put up painter's tape to act as a border and started with the biggest dots. And then after we added all the other dots.

Some other angles of the room. (And excuse the mess, we haven't finished cleaning it up yet.)

A view of the door and closet.

And our exuberant helper. He just had to be on the same stool that I was on. (And pardon the pajamas.)

Marc's mom is making us a valence out of an awesome polka dot fabric and we have matching crib sheets too. All in all I am quite pleased with how it is coming along.

Ryan is convinced this is me

At the end of the show In the Night Garden the icon below comes on as this is the production company that makes the show. Everytime he sees it, Ryan yells out "That Mommy?!?" Apparently, my attempts at taming my hair make no difference. Ryan clearly does take after Gramma who also used to try to tell me my hair was out of control. Marc thinks the whole thing is hysterical.
