52 : 16 (part 2)

As you've heard we don't do the excess toy thing, but with the amazing weather we have been having a trip to Toys R Us was in order. After perusing the water toy aisles Ewan and I settled on the Little Tikes combo water and sand table, Ewan hasn't looked back. He loves scooping the sand and the water, sending Brad and Gina down the slides, and general splashing. Water fun has happened everyday, rain or shine, clothing optional, pajamas preferred!

52 : 15 (part 2)

Ewan has another stamp in his passport! This last weekend we took a red-eye to Toronto for a few days of adventure before my work commitments kicked in. We explored Niagara Falls, the Entertainment District, the Distillery District, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), and the St. Lawrence Market. Ewan dipped his toes in Lake Ontario, explored the discovery section at ROM, and jumped on the children's train for a ride around the Roundhouse. He played football in the park, climbed on the train shaped playground, and charmed many waitresses with his long eyelashes and high fives. We celebrated Kevin for Father's Day while in Toronto with the day in the Distillery District, including a nice long lunch at Mill St. Brewery, and there is no doubt about it, Ewan's dad is legen ... wait for it ... dary!

52 : 14 (part 2)

15 month old Ewan weighs 30 pounds 13.7 ounces (98%) and measures 34.5 inches (99.5%). Needless to say Dr. Fong was very impressed and pointed out that in a room with 200 babies Ewan would be the tallest.

I have been horrible about keeping track of Ewan's words here, but according to the doc he is well beyond the vocabulary of an 18 month old, here are the words we have --- mama, dada, ball, dog, baby, coco, barley, what, yeah, uh-oh, hi, bye, and bob-bob. His lack of stranger anxiety and immense cooperation is also notable and evidently unusual at this age. With 14 teeth we are ahead of the teething game and Ewan's love of whole milk, yogurt, and cheese is evidently completely ok, and the fact that he uses forks to pierce food and eat it is again an 18 month old skill. 

On the home front 15 months has meant bruises on the forehead and fat lips, which we were ensured will continue. Tantrums are non-existent at this point, but they may be on their way, here is to hoping they aren't.

When I picked Ewan up yesterday teacher Katherine said, "I think he kissed every classmate today!" The hugging and the kissing has definitely continued and this past week we took a quick day trip to meet Baby A and to give her big brother a congrats hug... The bromance has begun.
