Thomas is getting lots of attention these days, as the throngs of spectators drop by for an audience.
Seriously, thanks to everyone who has come by to welcome Thomas or has stopped us on the street to say hello. We really appreciate your happy thoughts. And thanks to those who gave him gifts and brought us food.
And special thanks to those who remembered Lindsay!
Our second child is (finally) born! We had a busy day on Sunday and finally that night shortly before 9pm out he came and joined his family!
He was born on February 22nd 2009 at 20:48, weighed 3,825g (8lbs 6.7oz) and was 55cm (21.65 inches) tall
We’re all really happy that Thomas decided to come out and play, especially his big sister who wants nothing more than to dote on her little brother.
It was still nice out when we got home from daycare so I broke out the big sled and we played around in the front yard. At one point Lindsay discovered the neighbour’s pine tree. All the branches had drooped down and become frozen in the snow like a giant tent.
Of course I was instructed to follow her in and we had fun going around the tree trunk (a big stick) and going in and out.
At daycare our daughter likes to sit in the sled and be pulled around by the older kids. So I figured when the funk hit at home I’d sit her on the “big” sled and pull her around our yard.
That did the trick. Until I tripped in the knee deep snow and kicked some up in her face. Then she wanted to go inside and see mommy!!!
Kevin got things together and organized a pot luck birthday party for Sandra on Sunday. Almost all of us were there and we had a great time.
The food was excellent and we had a great time.
