Out of Concern for Mom on Flickr.
Explained the old saw ‘Step on a crack, break your mother’s back’ the other day. Walks in the park have gotten a bit more challenging for Trajan in light of this information. Lisa’s back continues to be without problem though so, absent any evidence to the contrary, it appears to be working.
Just two wild and crazy guys at a swing party. Despite appearances, they were actually having a grand old time. Trajan’s mate Tycho is part of our exclusive club of toddlers named for significant but not particularly well known figures in history. Their good friend Linnaeus wasn’t along on this day.
Twenty Four Months Plus a Day on Flickr.
And, now we bring this little series to it’s logical conclusion. Trajan is no longer a baby. Monthly updates are no longer relevant.
I’ve tried to duplicate our first entry in this series but, well, a 34” and 33lb toddler is nowhere near as easy to catch lying down as a 2 lb infant born 13 weeks before he was supposed to. He certainly does love his Mom though!
For some additional perspective, the first of this series was taken from approximately 18” away. This shot was taken with me standing on tip toes on a chair with my head brushing the ceiling!
Two Years Old on Flickr.
Yesterday was Trajan’s second birthday. Astonishing how the time passes.
Here he checks out the heft on his new weapon, er, cylindrical food preparation utensil used to shape and flatten dough bright and early yesterday morning.
Quite the journey so far and, it appears to be just starting to enter the fun stage. Don’t know that I can sum up my feelings any better than I did yesterday on facebook:
“Two years ago today approximately 30 highly trained professionals gathered together in an operating room at BC Women’s Hospital to, after 26 weeks of pregnancy, deliver us and a 900-ish gram bundle into a surreal world of flashing lights, beeping machines, wires and tubes where, over the course of 118 days 87 different nurses, a dozen or so doctors and a blur of respiratory therapists ensured that today, just two years later, nobody would ever guess any of that happened unless we told them.”
Happy Birthday Trajan, with a special shout out to my good friend Science!
Mostly Thankful for Awesome Cousins on Flickr.
Trajan’s mostly thankful for his awesome cousins this Thanksgiving like his main man here, Dylan who scored major points by (along with his Mom and Sister) giving Trajan an early birthday present of a huge dump truck.
Dad’s thankful that the coming week is much less busy than the last few have been so that I can finally get to processing the mountain of film waiting in my in box.
