A Belated Happy Father's Day to Marc

We had a delayed celebration for Father's Day for Marc as I was sick last Sunday.

Marc had ribs for dinner on the real Father's Day. He is (and rightfully so) quite proud of how they turned out.
Ryan and Adam had a message of endearment for Marc too.
A close up of Ryan showing off his muscles.

Like Father, like Son. Adam is starting his napping career early.
Marc is currently sleeping in to start the day off right.

I love this picture.

Some Updates on Us

It has been busy these last few weeks here. Nana has returned home and we all miss her a lot. Ryan is convinced that every plane that passes overhead has Nana on it.

Adam is growing like a tank and Grandma gave him his first bottle when I was beyond sick on the weekend. He loved it.
Grandma seems to wield some incredible power that made Adam take the soother from her with no problem at all. Adam has yet to do it again for Mommy and Daddy though.
Ryan had another tube surgery today on both ears. He did really well despite coming out of the anaesthetic with a vengeance. (He didn't do well the first time with this part of the surgery either but now he is bigger and stronger...)
He was great when we got home though. Ryan, Adam and I spent the day together and had lot of fun. Ryan cannot get enough of Adam - he just wants to hug and kiss him all the time. If you look closely at Ryan's face here, you can see utter joy.
I think the shirt says it all.

No seriously, he is just a cute kid. He is pretty laid back like his older brother and just a good kid.

Ryan's soccer career may be off to a slow start...

Ryan's godfather is the soccer coach so this may work in his favour. ;) Here he is in a pre-game huddle.
"Mom, I take this game very seriously. Can't you read my shirt? I love soccer."

An action shot.

As it could be expected, when you put a group of 2 year olds on a soccer field right next to a playground, there is little doubt that they will end up over there instead of the field.

Ryan's favourite part of the game - the after game snack.

Donkey Pictures

Marc's parents have a donkey wagon in their backyard and they have taken Ryan's picture next to it every year. It's neat to see the changes.

The mohawk picture.
(I also enjoy the fact that Isaac is passed out in the background of this one.)

Last year - in his sporty pose.

This year. You can almost hear him saying, "Grandpa - just take the picture, I have tomatoes to tend to."

Adam vs the Bear - 1 month

Here is Adam at one month! He is much more alert and gaining weight like a champ. He had his 1 month appointment today and weighed in at 9 pounds!

And a comparison shot to the first bear pic.

Adam vs. The Bear - 3.5 weeks!

I loved looking at these with Ryan and seeing how he grew so we are starting with Adam. :)
