Only 6 more weeks until our trip to NB! This will be our first trip home in 3 years. It's hard to believe it's been that long. We're looking forward to all but the getting there. It will be a whirlwind trip I'm sure...lots of people to see, not enough time. Still, it will be great for everyone to see the boys.
The boys are doing well. They just started a new school so we're in transition mode right now. Owen took to it quite easily but Cooper found it a little harder (though much better than Mommy expected).
Cooper is really starting to lose the baby...he's all toddler now! He's a runner and climber....good lord Mommy and Daddy can barely keep up. He's into everything and so it goes with second children, he's into everything far sooner than Owen was.
Over the last couple of months, he's really started to develop a sense of humour. He was very serious as an infant but he's definitely starting to come into his own and he's getting lots of laughs out of us lately. Maybe he's just happier now that he's got most of his teething done. He just had 6 teeth come in at the same time. Seriously...I suppose that would make anyone cranky! But he seems quite a bit happier these days.
He's started mimicking Owen a lot more. It's really too cute! They're playing a lot more together now, which also means that Mommy and Daddy are playing referee more too. Who knew it would start this early??
Owen is quite busy these days as well. He recently started soccer, which he really seemed to enjoy. Unfortunately, the weather hasn't cooperated and he's had some trouble with his asthma so he's missed a couple of games but fingers crossed that he gets to play this week. I think he'll full on stage a revolt if he does not get to go. He wasn't at all happy about missing soccer.
He's been talking about going to Moncton for a couple of months now...he says "we have lots of people to see there". I think he's got it all planned out already.
We recently saw his ear specialist and they may have to re-do his tubes again (sigh....). She's going to wait until September to make a decision in hopes that she sees some improvement. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Other than that, he's much the same. He's all boy, loves to get dirty, ride his bike, keep rocks and sticks in his pockets and he's still quite the character. He loves to get a laugh and his favourite saying these days is "I tease ya!"
So...count down is on to NB, we'll see you all soon!
Missing you much,
Michelle, Doug, Owen & Cooper
