blocks and barks

I build. He knocks down. And repeat.

And this is a picture of what barking looks like. Joseph likes to look at his dog book and "bark" ... which is really just blowing air (and spit) through those pursed lips.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, was our day today.

Joseph's hairdo was getting out of control... a kind of Donald Trump meets Billy Idol. So today we took him to Melonhead for his first cut. And Joseph was a prostar, happily sitting in the Thomas chair while his hair was clipped and snipped. But funny things happen at hair salons... we walked in with our baby and walked out with a little boy.

an update

... to say that there isn't much to update. Joseph has had a bad cold and cough so we've been staying in and laying low... which is good for me as I've returned to work part-time and from home. While Joe naps his cold away, I'm reading and researching and writing. And when Joseph wakes up, we're learning what cows and lions and bees say. So far, this has been a very educational January.

flight of the kantors

Hello - we've been to Shaunavon and back! There are 216 pictures to look at but, for now, here's one of Joseph on the plane... pre-puke. Longest (and smelliest) flight of our lives.
