jive talkin'

I cracked up tonight when I put Porter's new bike jammas on him and he smiled and said "awesome!" It made me think of all the funny things he's been saying lately and how smart he is getting with his expanding vocabulary.

One of my favorites is when I hand something to him, or do something for him and he says "you're welcome!" I tell him "no, you say thank you, I say you're welcome," and he says "thank you, you're welcome."

Whenever he bumps into me or Niles or the coffee table he says "woops, sorry!"

In the morning he comes in and tugs on my blanket and says "Out! Out! Upstairs!"

When anything is found a little misplaced he calls it "silly" - "silly car," "silly Niles," "silly cup."

He calls his flip flops "hop tops" and LOVES to have them on.

Every day when Neil leaves for work he says "Daddy, work, gone!" That's after he's already told me Daddy went downstairs to shower.

I am enjoying him so much right now and love to have little conversations with him. I am constantly amazed at how much he knows and what he is picking up.

facebook quizzes

When I was a girl I used to love doing quizzes in all the teen magazines - "find out if you're more than friends," "will your love last?" "are you popular?" ya know, those kinds of things. It really has been a while since I've taken the ol' quizzes (I think having a real relationship, getting married and having a child got in the way) but as of late I've had some time on my hands (thanks APX) and I've been taking quiz after quiz on facebook. Now most of these quizzes are laughable - not to mention the spelling is horrendous, but it's all in good fun. It's obvious I need to take a quiz to find out how fat I am, if I am missing Michael Jackson and who I was in high school. I have yet to get an answer that I think "wow, that's really me," but in the quiet hours of the evening why not sit and find out what 2009 song I am, or if I could survive a zombie infection.... I mean, I have been wondering.

Canada Day KFC

For the last few years now we have had a tradition of meeting for a Canada Day picnic lunch of KFC with Jace and Vicky, Colin and Cynthia and whoever else would like to join. This summer it's not going to happen and I'm really going to miss it. We are in Winnipeg, Colin and Cynthia are in Thunder Bay, and Jace and Vik are at home in Lethbridge. It's awesome when your best friends are family but it's not so awesome when you're all miles apart! Happy Canada Day you guys!
