Five years late...

Here's a video Roger finally got around to editing. He's been running out of space on the computer so he's been working on various projects to make some more room on the hard drive. Here's a link to the original post when Malcolm was born as well, link. Oh how he's grown, already a kindergartener.

A good night's sleep can be so illusive when it comes to having kids, let alone sick kids. It feels like we've been dealing with sickness in the house for months on end. Good news is that it seems like everyone is on the mend and we have hopefully put it all behind us now. Malcolm's cough is finally subsiding, and Melody's viral condition has seen much improvement in the last few days. Roger was even fighting an infection for the beginning part of last week and luckily with a dose of some anti-biotics he's back to normal. 

The weather has taken a chilly turn in the past several days, but the family ventured out today to Granville Island. They enjoyed some lunch and shared an ice cream cone despite the near freezing temperatures. Everyone found out that Melody really likes mint chocolate chip ice cream. Here are some pictures:

Melody's word explosion has been fantastic to witness. The sweetest thing recently is that she calls Malcolm "오빠 / Oppa". Melody knows so many words now and is linking phrases together. She saw Malcolm climb the ladder while he was helping put up the Christmas lights and she exclaimed: "Oppa, up there!" Pretty cute stuff.

Happy 5th Birthday Malcolm.

You've come a long way that's for sure. There have been some significant milestones recently and turning 5 years old is certainly one of them. We're all so proud how you've adjusted to school, kindergarten hasn't been much of a transition after all. Doesn't seem that long ago we were waking up through the night to feed you. Now, you've grown to become a big boy. You're strong minded, but kind when you want to be. You're talkative, but still somewhat shy. I hope that you know that you're family loves you very much and does everything within their power to give you a good life and try their best to help sculpt you into a fine human being. They try to give you every opportunity and expose you to many new adventures. You're a lucky boy, we hope that someday you'll realize it.

We're glad you had fun at your birthday parties. Bowling was a lot of fun. We left the guest list up to you and the party was actually quite cozy and quaint. We know how much you loved all your gifts. Here are some pictures your Dad took during the festivities. Near the end of the month we'll get to celebrate your sister's big day of turning two. Happy Birthday Malcolm, you're well on your way. Grandpa Harry wins the prize for biggest gift, even Malcolm fit in the box himself.Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday Malcolm's 5th Birthday
