Baby Beluga

Well, not a baby beluga but a beluga none the less!

This morning my mom, Loic and I went to see Jody at the aquarium. We had a great time! We saw Jody feeding the fur seals, the sea lions and best of all, I got my wish; I got to pet a beluga! He felt like a cold hotdog which was not quite what I was expecting. Jody has a really neat job and we love going to see her at work :) Thanks for the fun morning Jody!

My mom and I then took Loic to the rest of the aquarium where he pointed at everything and chatted away to the fish. So cute! That baby is so much fun to take places and he always has a great time wherever we go.

I got a delivery of 15 frozen whole chickens today from a neat farm I found in the valley. The people were great and I am really happy with how the birds are raised. My mom and two co-workers all got some birds. Can't wait to roast one for dinner this week.

Pumpkin Patch - 2010

Today we went back to the Laity Pumpkin Patch, the best entertainment $3.00 buys. We met our friends Tracy, John and Ben as well as our old neighbours there for a fun filled pumpkin themed morning!
Last year we carried 3 month old Loic around while this year, we ran behind our 15 month old who laughed, pointed, pet and poked his way around the patch :)
He loved, loved loved the turkeys, pumpkins and donkeys. So cute!

**The next photo is a flash from the past**

Baby Loic at the Pumpkin Patch in 2009 - was he ever this little?!

Now onto 2010!

Checking out the goats, sheep and giant rabbits

An example of fine parenting - feeding your child to the donkey :)

Baby and Mama

Oink! Oink!

Such a good walker!!

"I'd like this one please!"
(We did buy three to carve this year)

He tried to pick up each and every pumpkin in his path

A great quote and Paco

I saw this quote today and really like it:

Women need to know that breastfeeding quiets a noisy or fussy child, relaxes an anxious child, comforts a sick, injured, or frightened child, and conveys unequivocally that the child is safe and loved.”
Katherine Dettwyler in
Breastfeeding: Biocultural Perspectives, p. 203

Love it!

And as for Paco, he is still with us. We are in no hurry for him to go but I can't figure out why 100 people haven't applied for him! He is just great. He is just the right mix of terrier, chihuahua and other to make him an all around great little dog.

This weekend we are going to go and see the sea lions and I plant bulbs in the garden.

L.A. pics

We have been home for over a week now, but have been very busy so I haven't had a chance to post these pictures! Paco, our little L.A. rescue dog, is doing very well. He is a busy little boy but will make someone very happy. If you know of anyone looking for a very nice little dog, send them my email address. Now onto baby pictures!

Loic and I in the sand. Loic hated the sand day 1, but loved it day 2!

So cute!

Day 1 - not loving the sand yet!

A sea of Pluots (Plum-Apricots) which were delicious!! Really, really good.
