Hello BC, Goodbye Grandma…
Settling in back at home in Vancouver having West Coast fun with grandma + friends!
Wooooops! My watermark went a little out of control on that picture! Oh well, I’m too lazy to fix it! We hung out with grandma at the mall because I don’t know why but when you have a baby the mall is such an easy place to hang out! Food? Check! Bathrooms with changing tables? Check! Lots of stimulating things to entertain baby with? Check! Check! Check!
On Tuesday we took him for his first day at the beach! It was a gorgeous day in Vancouver + we dropped everything + headed out! That’s what you have to do in Canada when the weather’s nice! Previously, Langdon was too much of a blob to take to the beach when he was younger + most of the summer was spent in Alberta = no beach time. He was instantly overjoyed at the sun, the breeze + the sound of the waves!!!
Um, how gorgeous is the quilt he’s laying on??!!! HANDMADE by his soon-to-be Auntie Min!!!! And his cool SoCal dude T-shirt is from our favorite family in Encinitas, California – so appropriate for a beach day! Shaka! Lucky us, we have so many friends + family with awesome taste!!! Yay! Thanks everyone!
Langdon was obsessed with watching the ocean water rippling. Zen moment. Ommmmmm….fat belly….ommmmmm…OMG I just realized – if you look closely at Langdon’s hand he looks like he’s flipping the bird at the ocean. Rude boy.
I’ve been wanting to get Langdon a jumperoo because he’s a spazz. Most of them have so many bells, whistles, buttons + lights that Langdon will either get bored or overstimulated by them. Plus they are hella expensive + cost over $100 – even used people be selling them for $70! Highway robbery!!! I found this simple one on Craigslist for $10!
Don’t worry my friends – I put them in the dishwasher to get cleaned before I let Langdon play with them. $5 for a ton of them! And they’re hollow + super loud when you bang them together or throw them on the ground, so Langdon goes nutball over them! Win! This is a note to my buddy in Black Diamond – does the combination of all the patterns Langdon is wearing make you want to go blind?! Hehe. I knew it would.
Langdon was SUPER cranky the days after grandma left for Los Angeles. No more buddy in the back seat of the car, no more playmate, no more happy chatter in the house. Sigh…sniffle….sigh. I really wish my family could see + enjoy Langdon every day, watching him grow up + sharing his milestones. Okay I’ll stop now with all that or else I’ll cry.
I haven’t seen my friends or their babies for months! How big they’ve grown! I was in baby heaven cuz THEY’RE ALL SO FRICKIN’ CUUUUTE!!!!
DESTROY EVERYTHING!!!!!! ANNIHILATION!!!! LOUD NOISES!!!!! Wow. Boys will be boys! They were both losing their ever loving minds!
God help us. Langdon, please baby baby baby please. Gentle. Gentle.
Quiet time with sweet little Madison. Go to sleep, Langdon! We’ve been having some sleep issues lately. Not sure if Langdon is having a difficult time adjusting back to city life + it’s noises + excitement???
Bidding adieu to Rigel. Look at these boys! Best buds already!!! “Don’t go, Rigel – stay for a spot of tea, old boy!” said Langdon. “Well, my dear chap, I might stay on, but I’m desperately in need to put my head down for a kip!” replied Rigel. Awwww, sweet.
Langdon’s naps have been whack lately, which makes me want to pull out my eyelashes one by one, but still – we wish grandma + friends could come over EVERY DAY!!!! TOO MUCH FUN!!! Well folks, just as we are settling into being back in Vancouver, next week we are traveling to Ontario for a wedding + to see Jeff’s family! Mon Dieu!!!!!! Therefore, you probably won’t hear from us for a week or so because I predict that I will be up to my neck in activities!!! Until then! Byeeee!!!!
