Waiting for August to Arrive...


Hello! It's hard to believe this is August. I know there are people out there who are suffering under a heat wave, but I think we might have the opposite problem. It's been rainy, sweater weather for a while now. I actually arranged it so Griffin can finish the second week of his swimming lessons the last week of August. Hopefully it will warm up, and we won't feel like it's torture to get into the pool! Not that he wasn't enjoying himself immensely, because he was! Jai had last Friday off, so I convinced him to get in with G so I could get a couple of pictures.


I also got a couple of pictures of Griffin enjoying his (big, empty) room. We've started putting it together since then - the curtains are hung, the rug is down. Now we just have to drill some holes to find some (randomly placed - thanks 1880) studs in the walls, and we can hang his shelves and his moon light. He'll sleep in his crib still for the first couple of weeks, then we'll set up the big bed for the first time, and try that out. Hopefully he loves it, and *mostly* stays in it.



I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by. I keep waiting for it to start, and we're already half way through August! I bought corn and peaches at the Farmer's Market this week! Tomorrow Sarah and I are going to try and make dill pickles out of all the pickling cucumbers we have growing in the yard.

Then it's off to Halifax to do another wedding, the last one in the city for this year. We might end up staying a few extra days for a family shoot, but when we get home, Griffin's bedroom will be ready for him to move into, and we'll have a new washer and dryer!

It's probably all out of proportion how excited I am about this new washer and dryer, but after spending the last year without a dryer, I'm REALLY looking forward to doing the first load! It was a very generous baby gift from my Mom and Errol, and it's going to make my life that much easier, as we get back into cloth diapers and potentially have TWO little ones soiling them. Griffin and potty training so far seem to have no interest in each other. He'll sit on the potty for 45 minutes, and nothing will happen. Then he'll get up and run around, and within minutes he's peed all over the floor. Hmmmm. . . not sure what to do about that. Good thing he's so cute!

Para você mesmo diga o nome do único rapaz ou moça com quem você gostaria de estar (três vezes)... Pense em algo que queira realizar na próxima semana e repita para você mesmo (seis vezes). Se você tem um desejo, repita-o para você mesmo: Venha cá Anjo de luz eu te invoco para que desenterre (nome da pessoa) de onde estiver ou com quem estiver e faça ele me telefonar ainda hoje, apaixonado e arrependido, desenterre tudo que esta impedindo que (nome da pessoa). venha para mim (nome da pessoa), afaste todos àqueles que tem contribuído para o nosso afastamento e que ele não pense mais nas outras... mas somente em mim. Que ele me telefone e me ame. Agradeço por este seu misterioso poder que sempre dá certo. Amém...
