I went to get Grandson this morning as Chase was here and he was begging for his cousin's company, so I accommodated. They are such good friends and they had a really fun afternoon together. We weighed them today and Chase has now surpassed Grandson by almost a pound. Grandson is 44.2 pounds and Chase is 45. When we measured Grandson last month he was 43.5 inches tall. I really do think that the two boys have been very close in size for the last year or so. Both big boys, with very different builds. Hard to believe when you look at their baby stats, but Grandson is looking rather muscular and lean. Chase has more bulk. It really bothered Grandson that his cousin weighs more. His little friends have been turning five in the last few weeks and puzzles him as to why he is bigger but they are older. (although he is very proud of this fact) He is very matter-of-fact, but also very competitive. He always wants to be first....

He is a very chatty boy. He will repeat every word that you ask him to say and can put two words together as well. He is just over nineteen months old and growing up before our very eyes.

It's been a busy couple of months. March flew by.....it was cold and rainy and I did go to my eye dr's appointment at the end of the month. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my pressures were 17 in each eye and I don't have to go every two months any more. Now, it's just every four months. Yes!!
We celebrated our 32nd anniversary on April 12th. And by celebrating, we didn't do too much. I feel like we celebrate each other a lot....we spend a lot of time together and we are always making sure that we appreciate one another. I did discover that the symbol for 32 years is automobiles, which I thought was funny. I received a little Hot Wheels car, which my Grandson immediately took ownership to. He came out for dinner with us that night too, as he had spent the day with me and was determined to stay for dinner and see Grandpa. Cute little boy, and I know that there will be a day in the not-so-distant future that he will be so busy with his own activities that he won't want to be with us as much as he does right now.
We had some more renovation work done in the kitchen. My sunshine ceiling is gone and there are six new potlights in it's place. All of our outlets and light switches were changed as well, so they are a bit more updated. It took up one whole Saturday and half of a Monday as well. Looks great!!
Miracle #4 went to his six month check-up for his shoulder and was given a clean bill of health. He still has some physio to attend, and his shoulder is healing well. He went back to work in the middle of March and was on light duties for a few weeks and is now back to full-time and full duties.
My Canucks were knocked out of the first round by the LA Kings and we haven't really been into watching hockey since that ended in mid-April. I usually get more into it than this, but the third round starts today and I really didn't even watch much of the second. LA beat St Louis, so they are still in........I know that it doesn't happen every year, but often the team who beats Vancouver goes on to win the Stanley Cup. We will wait and see, but I really do think that LA has a pretty good chance of making it to the Cup final. They are playing Phoenix in this round. The NY Rangers are playing the NJ Devils.
Today is full of chores and Hubby is now waiting for me to finish up here so we can start. We need to get to the store and then it will be home to clean. The miracles are cooking me dinner tonight and it is Sweetheart's very first birthday as well. Her celebration was yesterday, but today is her official day. Happy Mother's Day, Everyone!

A friend had a baby on April 25th and she was only 5 pounds 8 ounces. She is so little.....itty bitty, as Grandson calls her. He loves babies and was rather smitten with her last weekend when he met her. I went to her baby shower last night, and my niece shared a picture that she had taken on her phone. Itty Bitty has already grown to over six pounds, and I had such a nice time out with the ladies last night!
