We just got back from a three day trip to Dryden Ontario. I sure missed the little guy while we were gone!!! The trip was the beginning of our two and a half week Christmas concert tour. Brian and I are both doing a little singing and I do a little dancing as well. It's a good show and I'm proud of it but it takes us away from home quite a bit over the next few weeks. I will be happy when it is over!
I will have some big news to announce soon as well (and NO I am not pregnant!).
This video I put up is from this afternoon after Keiran got up from his nap. He does the fake cry thing now when he doesn't get his way. He doesn't like it when we say "Ow!" after he hits us so he always starts to cry. I find it hilarious (because I'm a bad mom). He was a little grumpy in the video but I'm glad I caught him in the slap, ow, cry act because it has us laughing all the time. He is a hitting machine lately though! I hope this phase does not last too long.
On another note, we got our Christmas tree today! It's the first time we've gotten a live tree together! Keiran didn't really like being out in the cold, he cried almost the whole time we were out there. We actually weren't out there very long, we took the first tree we saw, it called to us both! Right now it is in the living room thawing out and dropping needles. I hope to decorate it tomorrow after my orchestra concert.
On another Keiran note, here is a picture of his room when we came home today. He is totally Capt. Destructor. He can trash his bedroom in 2 minutes flat! Which he now does on a daily basis. Sigh.

We've been having a lot of fun lately with Keiran! He now walks a bit, sticks out his tongue and waves hello. I got him waving hello and sort of sticking out his tongue in the first video and we finally got him walking on the second video. Fun times!!!!

Brian and Keiran were having tons of fun today! We were all sitting around the kitchen floor and they started playing a fun game of slapping the floor and stove and giggling. It was great!

Keiran has also taken a few solo steps!!!!! Woohoo!!!! On saturday he took his first two and today we convinced him to take a few more. It's great! I think it will still be a while before he is walking but that's fine with us, we're enjoying the learning part too!

Our little monkey is having a bad day today and only seems to want Mommy. But he did take a small break from his clingyness to play in the dishwasher. It was cute.
Today was a Keiran and Mommy baking day. *we* made whole wheat cinnamon buns, double fudge cookies, butter tarts and we iced some sugar cookies that I made the other day. I'm getting a head start on Christmas baking!

This little video shows a bit of the roughness of Keirans day. Sometimes it's just hard being a baby!

Snow day today! First big snow of the year and of course Hailey texted me first thing this morning just to say that she hadn't seen this much snow in.....FOREVER! I told her to wait until January when it really snows! Anyways, this is what our back yard looked like this morning:

Hails took this picture of Keiran playing with his drum this morning. After a few hellish days of teething fever, it's nice to have our happy little guy back again!

Wearing his IPood shirt from Uncle Stephen and Auntie Connie. And shoveling a pumpkin cookie in his mouth of course!

We had a clingy day yesterday and he did NOT want to let me go! It was cute.

Halloween 2008

We had a good Halloween here, with over 100 trick or treaters! I took Keiran out for a bit to a few friends places and everybody ooooohed and awwwwed over his cute elephant costume. So, pictures! The first one above this was our pumpkin. My first attempt at carving something other than a happy face. I mangled the kitty up pretty good but at least you can still tell it's a cat!
Next is Keiran and his stuffed elephant. Mike and Karen gave him the elephant for Christmas last year and so we thought we'd put them together for comparison. So cute!

Our little elephant playing with tupperware at the MFRC Halloween party earlier in the day.

When I first put the costume on him he just sat there. Kinda like "are you insane woman! You want me to wear THIS?!"

Him in his PJ's on Halloween morning. These were given to him by Grandma and Grandpa Driscoll when he was born! He looks sooo cute in them!
