Pretty Girl turned five today! We went to watch her play softball tonight and she was her usual enthusiastic self. She really enjoys playing ball, but was not in the mood for any pictures. Thank-you DIL for posting this on Facebook so that I have a birthday memory. I love her to the moon and back again!

We made it to the park twice today. And the afternoon sun was lovely and warm. I joined #3 on her walk to pick up Grandson from school and the children had lots of fun.

Sweet Pea visited Children's Hospital today and had her left tear duct unblocked. It was a ten minute surgery, and I guess the blockage was half way down her tear duct so there was no way that it was going to correct itself. Her Daddy was able to massage the one on her right side out a few months ago, but the left side needed surgery. She was quite happy at her sister's softball game tonight and it looks great, don't you think? Oh, I just love her to the moon and back again!

Baby has been standing unassisted for the past week or ten days now. But this is the first time that we had the camera ready. She will do this for a few seconds at a time or very close to a minute at a time. She doesn't really do it consistently, and I don't really know if she is even aware of what she is doing. She looks a little bit worried here, but I really did just place her on the lawn and she stood there for about 40 seconds while her Mommy clicked some photos. We are at her brother's baseball game and it is towards the end, so she is getting tired.
She is growing up so fast, and because we all kind of want her to stay a baby, she doesn't really want to. She is crawling really fast now and pulling herself up on everything. Officially, she is table walking, but if something or someone is a few inches away, she is brave enough to reach out and step towards it. She really is quite determined. Even if she is sitting in the middle of the floor, she will do little hopping movements, lifting her bum up and moving her legs like she wants to stand up. She doesn't have the coordination to do that yet, but it really is just a matter of time. She is nine and a half months old, and she doesn't want to be a baby. Sigh......

So, all because of this sweet little one, and her Mommy's desire to sleep-train her this weekend...

Pretty Girl is playing softball this year, so we went out to watch her last night. It was sunny, but it sure was cold. She was so excited to see us and she was having lots of fun. Of course, it was the dragon race at the end that is always the highlight of the evening. So cute to watch.......it is going to be a busy Spring!

I know that his birthday was already ten days ago, but #3 sent me some pictures that I thought I should share. He was so excited to get new video games from his parents and sisters!

It was Hubby and my 35th anniversary yesterday and we decided to postpone it until next weekend when I felt better. I feel okay, but I know that every day is just a little bit better than the last. And my friend Leslie invited me to a Chris Tomlin concert a few months ago......all she said was that it was in April and she really wanted to take me. When I found out that it was on April 12th, I figured that Hubby and I still had the 11th to do something special, but I wasn't planning on getting sick. Let's face it, it isn't something I do very often.
But I digress. Leslie and I went out for dinner last night and then to a fabulous concert. Chris Tomlin was excellent. Rend Collective and Tenth Avenue North were the back up bands and they were great performers and were awesome. We sang along and praised God with around 7000 other friends. It was quite surprising how many people we actually ran into that we knew....like at least 14 people from our church. Abbotsford Centre is a fairly big place, so that is a lot of people to actually know and say Hello to.
I got home around 11:30 last night with ringing ears and a smile on my face. I always forget about the ringing ears after a concert. And even though it wasn't really as loud as it probably could have been, we were 9 rows from the stage, so that was pretty close. Excellent seats and an excellent concert. We had lots of fun!

Baby went to the Dr on Easter Sunday, and even though she had just finished her antibiotics the previous day for an ear infection, she now had tonsillitis. So she is on Biaxin. Which she absolutely hates. She ended up with an eye infection too, so between having eye drops and medicine, she is not impressed. This picture was taken last Sunday night. Poor sad baby.
I can relate. I didn't go to the Dr until the next day, but having bronchitis is not fun either. I feel much better than I did, but I am sure it has been over 20 years since I have been on antibiotics. And these little people get better in a day with medicine........me, not so much. I feel sooooooooo much better than I did, but I have a terrible cough. DIL mentioned that because it has been such a mild winter, the germs are more prevalent this year. I think she is right.

It was Opening Day for baseball today, and unlike last year when it poured rain upon us, the sun came out. It was cold, but it was sunny so that was lovely. First stop. Team pictures.

We had an Easter egg hunt last Thursday. And then I got a cold that turned into bronchitis, my aunt and cousins were here for two days, Easter came and went, and I am finally feeling better. Thank God for Biaxin! We had a lot of fun last week, and the children were delighted with their eggs!

Grandson turned 7 today! And he had a wonderful party with lots and lots of family and friends. We had pizza and cake, and many other goodies too!
He is getting so big. He weighs 64.4 pounds and is 51 inches tall. As you can see, he is missing his two front teeth......all the rest grow in fairly quickly but these two don't want to reappear. I sort of remember his Mommy being like this too, but they have been gone for 3 months now.
He fits a perfect size 7 (but we buy him size 8) and wears a size 2 shoe. He just had his parent teacher interview at school and is doing well in Grade 1. His teacher wishes that all of her students were like him. He is kind and considerate, and a very good role model. He loves to play hockey and baseball, and could probably beat any of us at Memory. Even though he really enjoys board games, he really loves video games too. I love to listen to him read....because he is in French immersion, I can't understand anything he reads to me, but it is so exciting to listen to. Happy Birthday to our first and only grandson. We love you to the moon and back again!

These pictures were taken two weeks ago. You would never know that a couple of hours after they were taken, she came down with an ugly eye infection which turned into a right ear infection and the start of a red throat.
