Growing up...

Yaletown, originally uploaded by obiwanhavanese.

Lots of things are happening these days, many changes and transitions. As Tracey enters her 22nd week of pregnancy her ever expanding belly serves as a clear indication that this isn't a drill and than in less time than we've come, a baby will arrive. Tracey and Roger are still struggling with Malcolm' s sleep schedule, his defiance and attitude are every so-challenging to deal with, but still not a day goes by where he doesn't make everyone laugh. His vocabulary is expanding, his motor skills becoming more refined, and exertion of his independence is now unmistakable. A life of a 2 and 3/4 year old is both frustrating and rewarding at the same time. His new attitude is more evidence that he's growing up.

Tracey and Roger are now putting the finishing touches on transitioning him to his big boy room, namely to start preparing his old room for the new baby. They've bought Malcolm a new bed, bedding, drapery and night light. No one can foresee how the transition will go, and we all have our proverbial paws and fingers crossed. A funny thing that Malcolm said the other day was: "My crib is not too small." alluding that perhaps the move to the big boy bed may not go as smoothly we all hope... Stay tuned for the next chapter and pictures of Malcolm in his big boy bed.
