Happy Holidays

August had so much fun during our Christmas visit to Nana and Papa's, despite all of us muddling through colds and other maladies. The whole family, near and far, gave Aug some awesome goodies that he was amazed to discover were his to take home. He's going through an extra-shy phase these days so he played coy with Nana and Papa (and Uncle Adrian) for a few minutes each day before letting loose again. We enjoyed the sunny, snowy days with plenty of cribbage, good music, rest and yummy food.

Ho ho ho

Bright Nights train ride! Augie loved every minute. Lots of "oooooh's".
Stanley Park's miniature train comes in. We found out that this is its last year in the park. Vancouver Parks Board cuts :(
Helping dada decorate the tree. Ooooooh.
Decided hats aren't so bad after all and wanted me to put this toque that Nana knitted on his head. He very earnestly "sweeps" the floor like this at least once a day.

In other news, the inevitable indoctrination has begun: when you ask him what Santa says, Augie laughs, "Ohh ho ho!"

A visit with Uncle Adrian
Busy boy on the go
We got him his own mini broom. This is the face of pure, unadulterated joy, folks.

Wait, is this a black and white picture of Augie?
Great shot of Chris (peering into a crystal ball, perhaps?) from Grandpa.
Correction: Grandpa just told me this is actually a picture of HIM, not Chris. Hilarious!

Just came across this one taken a year ago. Makes me realize how much he's looking like a big boy these days.

halloween 2010

Augie dressed as a fuzzy little bear for his first Halloween and his little buddy Charlie dressed as a monkey. We walked around the hood a bit to check out the lights, pumpkins, fireworks and costumes and the boys danced (2nd pic) in the streets and seemed to love every minute of it.

Big boy car seat! Thanks so much to Grandma and Grandpa. Augie loves it.

perfect fall day

Warm and sunny fall days can be few and far between in Vancouver, but Saturday was all that and more. We took a ride out to Westham Island and went to the herb farm and the bird sanctuary. Augie loved "growling" at the ducks.

twin baby nephews!

We went to Portland this weekend to meet our twin baby nephews for the first time and they are beyond cute. Grandma and Grandpa were there too so Augie got some G&G time in as well.

we ♥ buffy

august is a big music fan. i guess that's kind of like saying august breathes but it's really quite extraordinary with him. he's completely transfixed, transported, happy and content when listening to songs or doing his favourite daily ritual: climbing onto our laps and watching a few sesame street songs, tapping his feet, clapping, smiling.

buffy sainte-marie is a new augie favourite, which makes me happy because i always thought she was pretty cool.

baby steps

He's been walking in little stops and starts for about a month but fully joined the bipedal world last week! We always knew it would be fun to see him start walking but we had no idea how awesome it really is to see him go, go, go. YAY, little man!

mini train momentz

Augusto took his first ride on the miniature train in Stanley Park and hearted it, of course. Major "pbbbbbbbttt" sound effects ensued.

The top picture is for all you Augie hair doubters out there. See? It may be fine, wispy and light, but it's there, dammit.
I've been kinda slacking on the Aug Blog updates. Month 13's been hectic. Some changes this month are that Augie's walking (yay), he's officially thriving at his awesome daycare, and I'm back to freelance writing and some photography a few days a week. I'll find time soon to post a few pictures of our recent Augie adventures.

Nana took this picture and we love it so very much. Sweet after-bath snuggle with Papa.
