kinda settled...

Well...we've been in our new place in Ottawa for just over a week now...and we're almost all unpacked. It feels so good to be in our own place again. We're all mostly settled in. It took a little longer for Bosco (who kept trying to sleep in our bed with us...and yes...we let him), but even he's settled now. Yes it kinda sucks being in a rental again, after owning your own house...but it's a really nice rental. It's funny but last night we had a meat delivery (a farmer actually delivered some hormone and chemical-free-grass-fed beef right to our door), and he said something about seeing how the "other half" live (referring to our neighbourhood). We laughed out loud, telling him how far we are from being the "other half"!!! But, yes, we live in a nice, prestigious neighbourhood, right off of a golf and country club. I'll post some pictures as soon as our place looks a little neater.



yes...Hudson is actually sitting on Bosco. For real. He's getting to be quite the naughty toddler. Yesterday he kept screaming at the top of his lungs. So we kept saying "no screaming Hudson", only to have him scream in our face. When it was obvious that saying "no" wasn't working, every time he'd scream, we gave him a "time-out", making him stand in the corner. Then can you believe he screamed again...and then walked staight to the corner ALL BY HIMSELF, to give himself a time out?!? WTF?!?

Love his sandals. He looks so big all of a sudden. That's nuts that he put himself in the corner. They understand everything, eh?

And what a good dog Bosco is.

Hahaha!! Who is "G"? Hilarious comment!

Yes the walking to the corner is something Jaia does too! Lovely! So not fun! But Jaia goes to his bed, he freaks out, then walks there with his heada down! What a weirdo!

Hey Guys,

Congrats!

Happy to hear that you are settled. I will be spending a lot more time in Ottawa this summer. Vanessa moves in July. See you there!

Hudson looks so big now. Losing the baby look and getting the little boy look. So cute!

Happy Screaming Hudson!

I love this sandals man. Too cute!

I find the best thing for when they start screaming (which is basically just testing your patience!) is to tell them once that it's wrong, put them in the corner and ignore. They get the message fast when no one pays attention.

hehehe, puts himself in the corner...love it.
