Best friends... we hope.

We really didn't know what to expect with the arrival of baby sister, but in recent months Malcolm has really taken to her. He does truly care about her. He is anxiously awaiting the day that she can talk and play.

Happy 6 months Melody.

Hard to imagine that 1/2 the year has already gone by since Melody was born. They do grow up quick, soon she'll be starting on solid food, sitting up by herself and perhaps even crawling. We're again happy to report that she's been such a great baby, let's hope the trend continues... Happy 6 months baby sister.

Happy Victoria Day - long weekend.

The weather has been quite chilly the last few days, quite a brisk wind. Funny to think it was better in March, I swear we had some warmer days then. All is well with the family, Malcolm's potty train has been rolling down the tracks smoothly. Melody celebrated her 24th week today. All is good with her, she's just been fighting the naps and the night-time put downs still, but like before once she's down; she's been pretty good. You won't meet a happier baby in the morning. We're usually greeted by cooing, laughing and you'd swear some singing every morning. Luckily, we haven't had too many early mornings as she normally wakes up around 7:30am so. Here are some recent pictures of the kids:

Great fun at Queen Elizabeth Park.

Happy 24 Weeks to Miss Melody. As previously reported, things are going swimmingly well. What more can we ask, she's happy, healthy and developing nicely. We've especially noticed that her hand eye coordination is coming along, she can grasp things, reach for items and even has the skill to take things in and out of her mouth.
Melody @ 23 weeks.
The family took a day trip to Queen Elizabeth Park today and Malcolm had a great time playing in the fountain. Really, good, clean fun not to mention economical. Malcolm's really come a long way, as he gets older he's starting to take more risks and stepping out of his comfort zone. Last year, he would have never stepped in the fountain, this year he was right into it. Now if we could only get him to eat some vegetables! Here are some pictures from today:

Happy Mother's Day.


We love you dearly yes we do.
We are all thankful yes that's true.
Knowing that being a Mom is certainly tough.
We hope that it all hasn't been too rough.
Today's the day we honour you.
You deserve big kisses, and lots of hugs too.
Happy Mother's Day, from Daddy, Malcolm, Melody and Obi.

Melody is 23 weeks old now, here's big brother and baby sister together:
Also big happy birthday wishes to Mr. Aaden, 1 year old!

Week 2 and all is well.

Malcolm has been doing tremendously well with the potty training. Although Roger and Tracey ask him all the time whether he has to go potty, he's been equally as good with initiating it all. Most of the time he's wearing pull-ups, but at home he's felt comfortable enough to wear big boy underwear. We're all very proud of him and his progress.

Melody is doing well too, considering she's cutting some new teeth. The night-time put down has still been a challenge, but as reported earlier "once she's down, she's down for a long time". The family managed to get out for dinner with Grandpa Harry and Annis. Please see the recent pictures below:
