Chris and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary today. And by celebrate, I mean, we ate our dinner at the same time. My hubby, ever the romantic brought home some flowers which was a nice surprise. Most people remember our wedding due to the fact that our wedding officiant fell in my moms’ pond right before the ceremony started. I remember it as the day I married my best friend (awwwwww!!). Ok, I also remember mostly the officiant falling in as well. I can still vividly picture him carrying on with the ceremony as his notes are dripping wet and seaweed clung to his knee high socks (he was wearing a kilt).

Henry decided he wanted to upstage the whole anniversary thing by pulling himself to a standing position in his crib. I should have known he was going to do something crazy. I spent the morning at my friend Courtenay’s place and every time I go there, the twins do something that Henry observes and then he copies it within 24 hours. Well this time he kept checking them pull themselves up on the sofas. Problem his he wasn’t paying attention on how to get back down so I left him in his crib for a nap and he started crying which I ignored but eventually his cries were getting more and more panicky so I went in to see what was happening and found him standing there in a panic not quite sure what to do. I ran to him and picked him up. The second time he did it after his nap, I made sure to bring my camera:

HELP!! I did it again!!!


Speaking of celebrations, last night we went out to my grandparents place in Hull to celebrate my grandmother’s birthday. We had an amazing meal prepared by my aunt Odette (this woman can COOOOOOOK!!!). We brought Ginger as well who played with my aunt Brigitte’s miniature snauzer Tarzan. Henry thought the whole thing was hilarious. I’m beginning to believe he’s inherited his father’s bias towards little dogs.

We also had a playdate with my nephew Niko yesterday were Henry showed off some new moves.


Watch me do downward dog


Who are you? Why do you kind of look like me?


Niko is a gentle soul. He lay down and chatted amiably with a cloth storage box for a good 20 minutes. This was the first time Igot to see him awake as well. Little fellah will be 2 months old tomorrow.
