Peter

Happy First Birthday Peter!

Wow, Peter is one today! I really can’t believe how times flies! I have to say I am such a lucky mom, to have such an amazing little boy and wonderful family.

I’m so full of emotion today- thinking about what I was doing a year ago today, feeling a bit sad that my baby is growing up so fast, and excited to watch my kids grow up and experience life together.

He LOVED his police motorcycle rocker. Actually he loved all his toys. While everyone else was exhausted and napping he was making the rounds of the living room playing with them one by one.

Dean’s first attempt at cake decorating. Pretty impressive.

Just like his late Great-grandpa Hurd. He LOVES ice cream. He totally ignored the cake, grabbed the ice cream in his hand and started eating.

I think he realized it was a little bit cold.

Now that the ice cream is finished he considers eating the cake.

My Crib Monsters

The other day when Peter woke up from his nap Charlotte decided to get in  Peter’s crib and play with him. They were having such a good time I decided to get the camera and take some pictures.

11 Months!!

Peter turned 11 months old on the 8th. How did that happen? As usual I wanted to take his monthly monkey photo and I had just received this tie I ordered from Trendy Ties.  The idea was to take a few photos with him wearing the tie and then do his monkey photo. The thing is – as soon as I put him down on the floor he was gone! Luckily he doesn’t do the same thing in his chair!

I got one good picture ( well except for the cereal he picked up off the floor and put in his mouth right before I took the picture)

And then he was off!

Went to take the picture with his monkey and then I couldn’t decide on my favorites so you get to see them all lol!

Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Blue Monster

Yes – I know that Halloween is still weeks away, but in October in Saskatchewan there is no guarantee we wont be in the midst of a blizzard by the 31st.

The leaves are so beautiful right now and the weather has been abnormally warm so I decided it would be a great time to get out and photograph the kids in their costumes. Now at Halloween I can concentrate on collecting candy 😛

I really wish I had gotten her other foot in the frame. Oh well.

Yah – he doesn’t look impressed AT ALL.

Little Red Riding Hood is obviously terrified of the Big Bad Monster!

Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater

Every year we go out to the farm after the pumpkins have been harvested to take some photos of Charlotte with the pumpkins. This year Peter was included (and Charlotte spent most of the time dancing with “her” scarecrow).

Jumping Jellybeans!

It’s been a while since I posted any new pictures here – that’s because I had a whole pile on my camera that I totally forgot about!

About a month ago my brother and sister-in-law came up for a visit and while they were here we decided to see what my niece thought of the jolly jumper. She had pretty much the same reaction to it that my kids did the first time – hang out, kick the feet a bit, and lick the straps.

Peter looks like a giant beside Ruby!

Not intimidate by his size she figured she would snack on his arm.

Of course Charlotte wanted to get in on the action – with her trademark “fake smile”.


Peter Is 9 Months!

As you can see – he wasn’t too thrilled at the beginning of the photo session (which lasted all of 2 minutes) but by the time I was done he was good.
