Time flies when you're having fun...

Both so cute!!
My baby bear!

My smiley boy is 2 month old now... time flies!!

Life is busy...and it's snowing!!

A cold hello from Manitoulin Island! Last week we had a foot of snow and it hit -17 in a day! When it snows here, it snows! The snow flakes are huge, and it doesn't stop! Apparently I need to invest in a few things to help me through the winter here (as I am told last week was nothing wait until winter really hits) :-
1. Snowboots
2. Long underwear
3. A face mask (I'll explain..)
4. A sleigh (Again...I'll explain..)

But winter does have it's good points, yesterday we went out to the hunt camp last night and had a ride on the four wheeler/ATV out in the bush. It was so fun riding down all the trails in the snow, it is so pretty. But once you get going fast, pretty cold, so I decided next time I will get a face mask so when we get back my face isn't numb for an hour! I can't wait to go on the snowmobile. They have trails for them all over the island, so it should be fun!

Driving here in the winter... well I won't be doing that! If you don't have an SUV or a vehicle that has 4X4 here, forget it. They have 2 snow ploughs on the entire island so roads here don't get ploughed like in Windsor. The snow packs down and they put sand in the corners so you have traction as you go round them. Sean told me nothing was put down in the straight part of the road as you don't need the traction; you are going straight. Sean tells me this stuff so seriously that I can't tell if he is joking and just winding me up! I guess we will wait and see!!

So the sleigh is for baby Caleb. His car seat/carrier will fit right in it and it is so I can walk down the main high street with it if I want to go and grab a few groceries or something I can pull him behind me as my stroller won't get through the snow. Again I don't know if this is a joke, we'll have to wait and see.

Caleb is doing awesome and is so much fun! He started smiling and baby talking, mainly at Sean. Sean sits there for ages talking to him and really gets him going! When I try the same tactics he just looks at me like I am crazy, but I do get the odd smile out of him from time to time and it just melts your heart and makes you giddy! He also make eye contact with you now, it is so amazing when he looks directly at you and recognizes who you are. He is getting big fast, he weighs 12 lbs now and keeps changing the size of diaper he is wearing, so I have tons left over that don't fit him. He has also grown out of the first sleepers we had for him. I was folding them the other day and I cab't believe he was that small!! He had his first shots on Thursday, talk about break my heart!

Thats all for now, I have to feed the munchkin (baby and Sean are curled up sleeping together right now - so cute!!) then get in the kitchen as we are having friends over for a small dinner party tonight!
