Mosquito Central

I knew they were thick out there, so we waited until midday when the sun would be it's hottest...

I also covered him as much as possible, leaving only his hands and face uncovered...

But those darn mosquitoes love my Caelan's blood as much as they love mine! 
Needless to say we're staying inside today.

Double digits

Happy Birthday Darcy!!

We celebrated with her choice of perogies for dinner and a Dairy Queen ice cream cake.

She sang right along to her happy birthday song.

Blowing out her birthday candles.
cough, cough, cough... Smoke! 

Now let's eat it!
TEN years old... where does the time go??

Damian opened the pool last weekend and Darcy couldn't resist temptation and jumped into the water that wasn't even 60 degrees.

It was so fast I didn't even catch her jumping in, only getting out!

I'd say she was crazy but both Damian and I remember doing the same thing growing up...

She was so proud of herself!
Caelan watched from a safe distance... I think he thought she was crazy too!
Ry was a little more cautious...
 But eventually she got in too.

Yesterday, I had my post baby six week check up that was more like an eight week check up.
The appointment had to be rescheduled a couple times because of Caelan's surgery and recovery.
I didn't have any concerns though and felt I was doing well.
Doc said everything was back to normal.
I laughed.
Normal?  I beg to differ.
Not so much "normal", but okay all the same.

Back to school

Caelan returned to school today.  We had an appointment at CHEO - well we didn't, but I thought we did... Anyway, I dropped him off and was there when his classmates all saw that he was back.  Their reaction couldn't have made me happier.  Caelan was all smiles.  I watched him go over to his best buddy and take his hand as they walked over to circle time.  To be able to see the bond between those two boys is enough to melt my heart.
I'm told he had a great day!

Makes everyone feel better

and garsh, it was hot and sunny out there
Anyway, we decided to mosey on down to the park.

I wore Ronan
which made it extra hot!
Needless to say, Caelan is feeling pretty good.

on the mend

Caelan is definitely feeling better.

Yesterday the girls brought home a present from one of his EAs at school.

He was so excited to get this shirt.  On it in a crossword style are the words "Mommy loves me Daddy adores me"

We put the shirt on right away and took the above picture to say thank you!  It was hard to get the picture because Caelan was insistent that "Mom, I do that!" pointing to the letters on his shirt. 

He's just started vocalizing again, although it's even more difficult to understand what he's saying because it sounds like he's talking with a mouth full of water!


Immediately after taking the picture we got right to work writing out about 20 different words before he tired.  So proud of him!
