Black Cats, Broken Mirrors, Walking Under Ladders, Opening Umbrellas Indoors, etc...


Obi, originally uploaded by obiwanhavanese.It's been quite a week for the family. Monday morning started with a big crash. Malcolm managed to pull Roger's camera onto the tile floor smashing the lens and giving a good bump to the body. Roger has taken the camera and lens to Nikon and hopefully it will all be repairable. Next, for no apparent reason Roger's watch strap spontaneously disintegrated before his eyes. The beautiful wedding present from Tracey (now also at the repair shop) has been sent to Ontario. I guess the scariest bit of bad news we got was about the development of the baby at Friday's doctor's appointment. Tracey's doctor even scheduled an emergency ultra-sound to confirm. I'm happy to report that all is well with the baby and everything is progressing nicely, all a false alarm. Oh and lastly, Roger has been fighting the stomach flu for the past week, so he's been on a diet of clear consume. What happened this week? Riddled with bad luck, we're hoping that things are now turning around, Roger is on the mend and getting the relieving news from the ultra-sound was the best news yet.

Happy Birthday Roger!

Roger's favorite dessert, Strawberry slice... here's Roger and Malcolm blowing out the candles. Hey, I think there are some candles missing? Special thanks to Grandma for preparing the wonderful treat. From what I've heard, everything was delicious.
It was Roger's birthday last week. He took the day off of work to go golfing with his friends. Ryan was in town so really it was nice for him to spend the day with his buddies. They went to Roger's favorite course, Furry Creek. It's such a picturesque setting with the Howe Sound in the background. They really couldn't complain about the weather either, it's been so warm and sunny for the past several weeks.
Grandpa Harry took the family out for a birthday dinner as well.
Malcolm relaxing at his new favorite playground at Central Park in Burnaby. It has one of the best features, a roller slide.

Thomas The Tank Engine

Roger, Tracey and Malcolm went to go see Thomas the Tank Engine in Squamish today. Malcolm has been looking forward to riding on Thomas for several weeks now. Although the ride was a bit anti-climactic a fun time was had by all. Malcolm came back with some souvenirs of the event. The train really did look exactly like Thomas.

New Brighton Park

We've been able to convince Malcolm to wear sunglasses in the beautiful and bright Vancouver sunshine we've been having. So far, he's been very good at keeping them on. Yesterday at the mall he took them off and said: "Daddy, I take them off because it's dark in here". Here's our recent outing at New Brighton Park.

Sleep issues...

Wow, we've been having quite a time with Malcolm's sleep schedule as of late. He's been fighting the nap and bedtime for several days now. Tracey and Roger have been doing their best to try and get Malcolm to sleep, but the little guy pulls out every stalling technique in the book. His best line: "I want something" to which we answer "What would you like?" To which he answers.... (silence.....) He's a crafty one. The frustrating thing is that we offer him everything under the sun which he rejects quite vehemently. If anyone out there can figure out what that "something" is, let us know. For a kid that has been so exemplary with regards to sleep issues, it's shocking to see this change.
