9 Months

Mom: Hello my smiley Mataya! You are 9 months old today!

M(ataya): I can't believe it Mom! It seems like it has taken my whole life to get here.

Mom: Well, it has. But anyway, what are you up to these days?
 M: I like to move. I can pretty much get where ever I want to go (and a few places I don't), by scooting. I wish you didn't have those gates up, though. The stairs are so interesting. I like to clap and I like to dance when you sing.

Mom: What things do you like to eat?

M: I really like fruit, Mum-mums and puffs. Most veggies are okay too.
 Mom: And how do you like to spend the time that you are awake?

M: I love to follow my brother around. But he doesn't like it when I touch his toys. I also really like bath time. And I like to try to crawl in challenging places like the exersaucer. I also like to do some different tricks with my tongue, which makes you and Dad laugh. And I do not like it when someone takes something away from me. That is not very nice!
Mom: And you sure let us know that. I am also glad that you sometimes say "Mama" now.

M: I know you like it, Mom! I love you!

Mom: I love you too, Mataya!

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!

Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.
