Lately No. 6

Things around here have been pretty Boo-focused (aren’t they always?). Boo had his one-year check-up and vaccinations at the family doctor. As usual he screamed bloody murder, but didn’t have any bad reactions.

We also spent a day at the Montreal Children’s Hospital for a whole pile of appointments. It was a long day that started off badly (Mama couldn’t find any parking and swore a lot! In the end I resorted to indoor parking at Alexis Nihon Plaza for SEVENTEEN dollars. Sigh.). But the appointments went well, and we managed to fit in a little walk downtown during our lunch break. The weather was abnormally mild (I think it was over 20 degrees!) and Boo and I were out in our t-shirts. I felt I was somehow neglecting him, though, when I saw other parents bundling up their little ones in heavy jackets and – I kid you not – even a snowsuit. Seeing things like that always makes me second guess myself, but I figure I must be doing something right – the kid’s never had a cold, or an ear infection, or any major illness.*

At home we’ve been playing with new toys, and attempting to get Boo’s teeth on film. I have to assume it’ll only get easier as they come in, but here’s the very first shot I got of his lower teeth:

On Thanksgiving weekend we headed out to Kemptville to visit with my folks and to partake in their annual BIG FAMILY DINNER. When we arrived Boo immediately went to his Nana and enjoyed looking at his farm book with her:

Thanksgiving Sunday was gorgeous, so we headed outside for some fresh air:

Riding the Kubota

I tried my hand at my dad’s new Kubota….it definitely took some getting used to. (Oh, and do you like those socks? Geez….)

After my so-so attempt on the Kubota my dad got on and showed off. I don’t think Boo was too impressed….but who cares? Look at those eyes!!

….back home, I had a treat I haven’t had in a LONG time:

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

An old favourite….peanut butter on top of President’s Choice Decadent chocolate chip cookies. And a glass of milk.

More photos from that beautiful and gorgeous day to come (my mom and I took Boo to see pumpkins!!) and from Thanksgiving. Stay tuned.
