My family

Here's some picture of mom and dad and I at dad's house last weekend the night before mom and I had to come home. I had such a great time being at dad's house for the month and was sad to leave but excited to come home all at the same time. I miss dad so much already and I can't wait to go back for awhile. The weekend visits just aren't enough!!

I sure do love my daddy!!

More pictures of us goofing around

The new word of the day is ......

Mama!!!!! I'm getting pretty good at it now too. Sometimes it just comes out as Mom or Ma but once in awhile I will get the whole Mama out. Mom was so excited and now she brags to dad lots that I can say her name too.

Me and Auntie Sherry when she came to dad's house to visit for the 4th of July. We went out to the ocean at Semiahmoo and watched the fireworks.

I love Wheel of Fortune

Here I am watching the tv intently while my favourite tv show is on .... Wheel of Fortune. Believe if or not anytime it is on I will sit and watch pretty much the whole show. Once I'm talking I'll be yelling out the answers like crazy!!

My trip to the hospital

On Friday night I decided to spice up the weekend by making a trip to MSA Hospital. I was playing and my arm was sticking out behind me and when I went to move it I bent my arm funny and dad heard a "snap" in my arm. It hurt really bad and cried like I've never cried before. Mom and dad didn't know if my arm was broken or what and didn't know what to do at first. They took me to grandma and grandpa Tolsma's and they said I should have my arm checked out. So into the car we went and drove off to Canada to go to the emergency at MSA. When we got there I got examined and it was determined that I had dislocated my elbow. The doctor snapped it back into place (again more crying like never before) and in about 15 minutes I was as good as new!!! The doctor said I have to be careful with my elbow because chances of it happening again are very good between now and when I'm 4. Hopefully it won't happen again!! That night we stayed at grandma and grandpa Beldam's house before heading back to dad's house. Don't tell anyone but I really just missed grandma and grandpa Beldam and needed a little excuse to go and visit :o)

Just a little bigger and I can reach the pedals
