The little man..

So what has the little Mr. been up to lately you ask?

No more crawling for him..
Walking is the new form of getting places!!

He loves to turn on the cheese when the camera appears.

 And then comes to chase it. :)

He loves running and romping with his older siblings. This was the "before going to bed supposed to be calming down but running walking fast around the circle" time that happens around here. 

Oh, he's just the sweetest thing. 
The bottle is gone and the sippy cup has taken its place.

There is definitely a personality beginning to form in this lil guy.
And it's so much fun watching it!

He is a daddy's boy..
Loves anything motorized and makes motor noises.
Would live outside.
A true little boy for sure!

Good week to all!

The trip to Canada!

So our little family braved the 28 hr trek to the beautiful land of Dryden, Ontario.

It was a fun time had by all.
My sister and her family currently live there
And also a cousin..
We don't get to be together often..so times to together are precious...
And fly by way too fast!

While were there my grandparents and aunt came..
then my parents and my lil brother and sister.
So it was like a little family reunion going on!:)

Fun fall leaves..
With the cousins??
What could BE more fun...

 He may not have acted like it.. but deep down inside i think he like being doted on :)
Before we left for Canada i couldn't help but buy this Moose shirt...
We were hoping to see a real moose while there, but did not.

Lollipops from the Secretary. 

The beautiful lake.
Carter wanted to live out there and fish. 

 My grandparents with Carter and Cousin Kylie.
 Riding on the golf cart..

My sweet sister and her daughter..
Cousins and friends.. (so cute)

 Some cute grampa time.. :)

Getting a ride from uncle Justin! 
 Everyone piling on top of Grampa..
 The fishermen bringing home their catch of the day.
 Me with my niece and daughter..
 And with my niece Kristin.
She was a baby at our wedding.. Can't believe how grown up she has become!!
 He hadn't seen Aunt Trina since he was 10 weeks old..
But he soon figured out she would hold him and spoil him!:)
 My cousin Mindy also lives up there ..so we hung out with her too!!
My brother and and cousin Mindy playing a game..

 Since I'm not a huge game person, i give "soothing" back rubs and take pics while others play.. :)
Yes, apparently my back rubs are "to die for"..
That is, if you can handle the pain that my strong fingers give.

 I wish i had her at my house to help me out!! :)

 The sisters!!

The mother and her daughters.. and a lil granddaughter that joined in..

And here is a parting shot of our whole family...
I love each one of them!

:) - bye for now

The day they celebrated my first birthday..by Jamison

 So they keep telling me I'm one.
And holding up a finger.
I don't really get it, but i usually just smile and wave.

On this particular day they set this little cake in front of me and starting singing a song really loud.
And believe me, when i say loud, it's loud.
Mommy says there was 16 people singing to me.

 I felt bad, but i couldn't help it.. It sounded so bad, i had to cry.
 Uncle Mike said look! it's a cake! Touch it, eat it!
Actually i heard many voices that day.
It was all so overwhelming.

Cautiously i began to reach in..
 Ever so cautiously.
because you never know.

The moment i finally did touch it, they all begged me to taste it..
So i did. 

Hey it wasn't bad!
 This was so exciting to everyone around me.
Specially my brother, sister and cousins..
They loved to help and offer advice.

 I really did start getting the hang of it after awhile.
 And my goal was to devour the whole thing.

 But i got kinda distracted with cousin Kylie.. and couldn't help but put my icing hands in her hair.

 Then i thought, Hey! while everyone is watching.. why not charm them a little!!
 Like i said. so much attention, so much love from the cousin and siblings.

 It started becoming too much for me to handle.. i tried to hang in there, because they kept chanting at me..
Eat it!
Dig in it!
and stuff like that...
 But it was sticky..
 And i couldn't handle it anymore!!
Mom! Save me! i hollered.
 Stop taking pictures and rescue me..!
 Daddy dove in and offered me some water.
Which did help.
But i was done.
And when a one year old is done there is no keeping on.

That was quite the experience!
It's not every day you are told to make a mess....
And i got to take a bath afterwards, which is like one of my favorite things to do.

Well I'd better go..
It's time to go make a mess by digging stuff out of cupboards...
and when I'm tired of that I'll go find my mama and cry at her feet.
Life is busy when you are one!!
