maybe tomorrow.





stormy weather all day today. our family of four trundled out amidst the puddles this morning hoping to make it here for a mug of steaming coffee. sadly the bus never came so we headed back to mabel for warming tea and pancakes. cc adored the stormy walk and sheltering under his pa's umbrella. little clement snored contentedly the whole time and stayed super dry hidden under my rain coat.
maybe tomorrow will dawn with sunshine and the storm will be over.

farewell grandma




clem and cc bade farewell to their grandma tonight
the month long visit was spent chasing cc and reading to him nonstop
and watching him roll up and down these nova scotian hills
clement settled into her soothing arms on super unsettled nights too - 
sometimes only a grandma will do.

beneath the tree


settled beneath an evergreen tree this morning,
following a tantrum or two,
a tearful cc asked to hold 'my big brother clem' 
(he is always muddled over big and little brother roles).
so he carefully held on tight to four week old clement frank
and together they lay, their toes in the morning sun.

clem et claude


this little mister is taking in more and more. he stretches out happily in his hero pose. he is a champion nurser. at dusk his tears and the unsettled hours start. then the stove top fan is turned on full and we cuddle under its comforting sound until all is calm. 

this little mister is a wonderful big brother. he wakes wanting to see baby clem and curls up beside him on the sheepskin. his favourite tunes to sing are the zoom zoom moon song and casey jones. strangers constantly tell him how handsome he is. he says 'good morning' to anyone we pass no matter the time of day.

the pony ride



cc had his first pony ride on saturday.
his toes couldn't stay still with the excitement.
and finding the patience to wait in line amidst a morning of tantrums was super tough. when his turn to ride finally came he settled onto the tanned saddle, handsome as can be in those suede moccasins and denim. and afterwards he couldn't wait to tell baby clement all about it.
yee-hah cowboy cc.

sixteen days.







baby clem toasts sixteen days old today. dimples show in his tiny cheeks. his big toes point straight up when he hiccups. he nurses nonstop night and day and has started to stay awake wide eyed for two hours at a time.
cc is happy his grandma is here staying. they take walks down our street and read many storybooks. cc tells her 'grandma time to get up. grandma banana cake in four pieces please. grandma where are you?'. he is full of words. instructing and ordering us all. filling his big brother boots.

the two of them


cc loves miniature trucks, borrowing sunglasses, taking walks in the sun

clem loves nursing, sleeping all the day, waking all the night
