The many faces of Adam

I haven't had a chance to post some of the pictures that we have taken of Adam recently. He has such an expressive face and when he smiles his whole face lights up.

Hanging out with Mommy
Showing off his tough side
Looking forlorn.
Hanging out with Ryan. Ryan can't get enough of Adam.
A new take on tummy time.
Hanging out with Daddy.
My attempt at some good black and white shots

Showing off his hairline. :)
A little bit of baby bum.
Smiling away.

An early birthday party for me :)

My birthday is on Tuesday, so we celebrated a bit today. Marc and I went to see Harry Potter and out for dinner without the boys and then later went to Marc's parents for cake.

Marc and Ryan made the cake with lots of love and care. (Ryan spent most of the cake making time eating cake bits and icing.)

In honour of my obsession with Coach purses, they made me a Coach purse. Marc feels it is very important to note that the purple squiggle on top of the cake is a zipper.
Marc was in charge of icing the cake and Ryan was in charge of decorations. (And some quality control by poking his finger into the cake and icing as he decorated.)

Cheese Mommy! (This was also the beginning of the sugar high.)
The finished product.
And finally, here we are all together again celebrating my birthday.

Potty Training Here We Come!

Ryan wore his underwear for the first time today. We are setting the timer on the stove for every 30 minutes to get him to use the potty. Wish us luck!

Happy Canada Day!!!

We had a great Canada Day this year. In preparation for the festivities, Ryan made this flag at school and then took it a step further to show his true patriotism by getting a tattoo.
Ryan was very excited about the whole process.
Canada Day Preparation - Ryan was helping Marc make shish kabobs. Ensuring the highest levels of quality control - Ryan tested out the veggies.

Adam also wanted in on the festivities so the King of Puke wanted to wear this bib.
He didn't want the ladies to miss out on the key messaging on his shirt though. A family shot of us in all of our Canadiana. (These are getting harder to do as Ryan moves all over the place. :) )
Just because we never have any shots of just the two of us anymore.

"Anti" Phetsamone with Adam.

Grandpa with Claire - this is one of the few moments that Claire wasn't walking laps around the house. She's a machine!
Ryan couldn't get enough of Claire. She knew how to work it too as she had him feeding her Cheerios by the end of the night.
Ryan also has the ability to wrap people around his fingers. Here is Grandpa feeding him his frozen pudding dessert that Grandma made.
Sugar High anyone?
Poor Anthony was down for the count after dinner (even though he wussed out on the amount of ribs he ate - DIVA! ;) )
After dinner, it was off to the fireworks!!!
Ryan with Marc

Ryan with me. :)

Grandpa and Isaac

And this is how Adam enjoyed the fireworks. It was fairly buggy so he had the netting over his carseat. He didn't seem to mind it though and was still able to see the fireworks.

A shot of Ryan in action at the fireworks dancing.
