February 20th - Saige'isms

Monday, February 28, 2011

Saige is doing/saying some incredibly cute things these days. It seems like I'm recharging our Flip batteries every 72 hours as I scramble to catch her precious (and not-so-precious) moments on film.

On Monday we spent the afternoon delivering Valentine's Day candy grams (which were actually the banana chocolate chip muffins we whipped up earlier that morning).

Surprising Baba with some February 14th treats.
I love how my Gram's mailbox reads "no soliciting".

Tuesday we dined out for Uncle D's birthday dinner sans Uncle D.

Wednesday was movie night.

Thursday I had a wicked sinus headache, but enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Dean & Byron's with fam.

On Friday us guardianship workers joined our youth up at Silver Star for a day of tubing, ice skating and candy store loitering.

Saturday was swim lessons and a trip to Okanagan Science Centre to escape the cold.

And Sunday we went to Gramma and Papa's for a spaghetti dinner and hot tub. 

Some recent Saige'isms include:

1. Her obsession with mon'dey (translation: money). She'll dump all the coins out of her piggy and then jam them through the slot one-by-one like some greedy banker.

2. Her snack du jour is fishy crackers paired with craisins and raisins.

3. When she grows up she wants to be a... dragon.

4. Buzz Lightyear is her hero.

5. Her favourite colour is blue.

6. She gets super excited and animated whenever we give her a tiny treat/present; she'll say things like "ooh... I wuv it!", "that's my favourite actually" or "thank you, thank you, thank you".

7. She thinks bodily noises are hilarious and announces them like the tomboy she is, "uh-oh I toot-ed... s'cuse me" or "haha I burp-ed". Super classy. I especially love when she randomly yells out, "mommy toot-ed!" even when I didn't and then our conversation sounds like I'm trying to cover it up - so embarassing.

8. Saige is a storyteller. Only half the stuff out of her mouth is factual. I'll ask her what she had for lunch at daycare or who she played with and she spout off these elaborate details... ex: "Julia and I had soup, crackers and milk; when I verify the lunch menu with Dean I find out that (a) Julia doesn't come on Thursdays and (b) today they were served angel hair pasta with steamed veggies... liar, liar, pants on fire.

9. At 25 lbs she may be small but she's über bossy and has more friends than she actually deserves. Apparently she barks out orders from her thrown (aka - the potty) and all the daycare kids run around carrying out her directions... Lord help us.

10. We taught her her last name and now she calls herself Saiger No instead of Saige Knol.

She's really turning out to be quite the character. But good, bad or ugly - we can't seem to get enough.

February 13th - Be My Valentine

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Trev and I aren't big on Valentine's Day exchanges, but if we were I'd totally have ordered up this gem of card for him to read on tomorrow's Hallmark holiday. Etsy shop Lemons with a Pea has some seriously funny cards including the classic "you can't say happiness without penis" - haha.

And speaking of butts - check out Saige's wardrobe malfunction sans diaper. The joys of potty training... reminds me of that American Idol tune "pants on the ground, pants on the ground, looking like a fool with your pants on the ground...". If nothing else toddlers need the extra padding just to keep their trousers up (although I did find a baby belt on

We've had quite the February thus far... Trev was involved in a pretty serious head on collision coming home from work on Monday and the whole ordeal has literally turned our lives upside-down. It didn't really hit me until later that night just how lucky we are that he was able to walk away from the scene on two semi-stable legs. I've been squeezing him a lot more these days which makes him grimace in pain and annoyance.
Prior to the accident we took in some winter carnival events, tackled some DIY projects as we prepare the house for an eventual sale and watched 5 grown men take 3 whole days to install our new furnace and air conditioner... yuppers that's right, we're gonna enjoy the summer in comfort this year - no more fans (and window units) for this fam-damnily.

It's a big job but somebody's gotta do it... my goal for 2011 is to take pictures of every square inch of our bitty house and post it for you viewing pleasure.

9:00 a.m. Saturday morning swim lessons = never again... yawn.

Caleb is such a Papa's boy and I wuv it!

Beautiful day for a parade... Saige liked the suckers and Caleb liked the mini-cars... it was a win-win.

My favourite float... the Bollywood music was just a pumping.

This has NEVER happens... Saige fell asleep in Trevor's arms on the walk home.

I learned that 7:00 a.m. is just too early for my Valentine to sign Valentine's Day cards.
Toy Story and Tangled are February's favourites.

Saige is turning into quite the little comedian/scam artist... I'll try to get another video up in the near future.
