It's summertime!

In the past couple of days, it's become like a sauna outside. The humidity is intense, the sun is so strong - and I'm loving it. I don't understand Canadians that complain all winter about how AWFUL the snow and cold is and then complain about the heat. Will you EVERY BE HAPPY (faceless Canadians)??

Charlie's had a couple of firsts this week! He had his first "swim" in an outdoor pool!

"This is the best, you guys!"

He also had his first skinny dip! And then aired out in his stroller.



He wasn't too sure about this part.


Tomorrow is his first time to a movie theatre! We're going to a "Parents with babies" matinee of Bridesmaids tomorrow with my sister, my mom, and my mother in law. I'm so excited for him to see the big screen, although kind of worried about how he'll do. He's constantly wanting to be on the floor, crawling, and pulling himself up lately that I can't imagine him just sitting there.

I hope he laughs at all the appropriate moments. Nothing worse than a baby with no sense of humour.

And even though I've shown this to everyone and their mothers, I'm going to post this video on here because it's ri-gosh-darn-diculously funny. Seriously... he could be a youtube sensation. Next up: Ellen.

Ok so my NEW excuse...

... is that I was in New York!

Ok, so only for the weekend, which gives me no excuse for the weeks I haven't posted. But just cut me a break people! Why you gotta be on my back all the time. GEEZ!

Our trip was amazing. It was just what we needed. We got to have some adult time, which was perfect. Oh and we saw Seth Meyers (from Saturday Night Live)! And he waved at us. Look!

It's his car, I swear.
So my timing was a little off on that picture. But we did see him, for real.

We went to a Broadway show, saw some stand up comedy, toured Manhattan in a boat and went to a Yankees/Mets game!


I think we pretty much covered all of our bases (you see what I did there?)

The kitchen work is still going on, and I feel like it's never going to end. But we have half the cupboards in, so at least SOME progress has been made. Yay?

Oh and Charlie is like a different baby. Yes, I know we were only away for 4 days but it's like he's a toddler now. By next week he'll be married and have a mortgage.

Since I know everyone comes here for some Charlie, here's a video! Apparently paper ripping is hilarious (and yes, I totally stole the idea from youtube.) It's insanely out of focus, but the cute is quite clear with this one.

I have an excuse

I was told today that "I suck at blogging" (thanks KARA!). And, yeah. Totally guilty there.

But I DO have excuses. Starting last week our kitchen went from this




to this



That's some Mike Holmes shit - that's what that is. 

My suggestion for anyone out there? Do home renovations BEFORE having a baby. (Although since 100% of you reading this already have babies, that's a little late.) The whole caring for a baby thing + taking care of 2 dogs + having incessant banging/sawing/squeaking going on throughout the day? Not fun. And it's only been 7 days.

I am slowly going crazy 1-2-3-4-5-6 switch....

Luckily the weather's improving so we can get out of the house.

Look! Flowers!



I'll try my best to improve. (Just for you Kara!)
