Bells on belt buckles ring, making spirits bright...
Note the rather (ok, somewhat) lifelike pose of our warmly-dressed little guy!
Hey, what time is it???
We were up bright and early for Vaughn's first Christmas, and full of pip and vinegar!
Well, one of us was, anyway!
A George-in-the-Box from Grandma and Grandpa Power...
"Mommy, hurry up and put my toy together! Um...and put on some makeup, too..."
His new tricks, acquired this month, include:
He's vocalizing a lot more, and makes a lot of "da!" noises, plus imitating tones as well. And of course, he eats anything and everything you give him! Gotta keep those cheeks pinchable!
All in all, it was a fun, though somewhat confusing, holiday. I was praised for being a pleasant little skunk for the whole day, though, which I guess is good.
And Mommy's already looking forward to next year!
* Question for Captain Grammar: does a plural indirect subject (Odin and Teddy) require a who or a whom?
We went to Calgary the weekend before last and were graciously hosted by Chris' cousins. Vaughn was in heaven --
people that waited on him hand and foot, a kitty and TWO doggies! Oh, and we also went to the zoo.
The end of July also saw us take a road trip up to Edmonton (with a stop for lunch with Grandma and Gramps in Red Deer). It was a nice long weekend -- the V-man hung out with his doggie cousins, Odin and Teddy, and Aunt Lynda, Uncle Rob, Uncle Ryan, and of course, Grandma!
Unfortunately, Chris came down with the flu, so Vaughn was left to the tender care of Odin a lot. Nobody was eaten, so it was a successful trip.
Finally, Vaughn has grown out of his baby tub (snif), and had his first big boy bath in the bathtub. He's growing so fast!!!
