Halloween 2008

Halloween 2008 was pretty fun. Malcolm was such a happy and willing participant that it made things easy for Roger and Tracey. He thoroughly enjoyed wearing the fabulous Monkey costume grandma had made for cousin Nicole many years ago. Roger said that Malcolm got so many compliments at the Mall while trick or treating. Here are some pictures from the past few days.

Here's Malcolm at play school with his other little friends.
It's amazing how much difference a year makes. Here's the split-screen of last Halloween versus this Halloween.

Changing Autumn Leaves in Vancouver.

It's very beautiful this time of year with all the changing colours. Here are a few pictures of Malcolm from the local park.

The boy really loves trains.

Thanksgiving weekend was the last time the trains ran for the season, and since the weather was still nice Roger and Tracey took Malcolm for one last ride until the spring. Here's some video:

Pumpkin Patch

Tracey, Roger and Malcolm took a trip to the Pumpkin Patch in Richmond this past weekend. They soon realized that they were quite ill-prepared for the whole endeavour, but ankle-deep in mud they still managed to enjoy themselves. It was quite busy at the farm and a bit chilly as well. Malcolm picked out two pretty pumpkins and thoroughly enjoyed the locally grown apples. Next year they'll know what to expect and will have rubber boots, a change of clothes and even some gloves to help things go smoother. Next stop Halloween.

Thanksgiving and all that.

As you may already know I like to comment on the weather, in fact many of my blog posts comment on the weather conditions here in Vancouver. With the onset of Autumn it has been turning chilly; although we've had some sunny days the warm weather is for sure only a memory now. As the colder temperatures set in there have been some developments afoot.

Last night Tracey gave Malcolm a blanket to sleep with to get him used to the idea. They are also considering giving him a pillow too. The transition to the big boy bed is on the horizon. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanksgiving dinner went off splendidly with turkey and all the fixings. A good time was had by all. Here are some more pictures from the past week or so.

Here's a picture of the moon taken from our deck, very bright.

The boy sure loves his bread products.

Malcolm is 23 months old...

Malcolm is now 23 months old. Some things we've come to learn while watching Malcolm develop.
  • He's got a remarkable memory.
  • He knows so many words, we've lost count.
  • Eating is still a struggle, unless it's ice cream, bun, cake, or oranges.
  • Thomas the Tank Engine is known as "Bobby" in our house.
  • Veggies are for suckers.
  • The more bread products there are the better.
  • He's learning stuff everyday.
  • Long car rides are for the birds.
  • Poo poos are tough.
  • He's a very lucky boy to live in a house full of family members that love him so much.
