Sorry this is a little blurry.  But it's so funny I had to post it.

Stroller and New Favorite Toy

Frankie has a favorite toy.  Barb and Lee (pur daycare providers) lent us this bear/blankie thing and Frankie loves it.  Below you'll see a couple of pictures with him and the toy. 

Frankie snuggling BEAR.

Frankie loving BEAR.

Frankie eating BEAR.  It's chewable and that's the real reason he loves it.


Last Tuesday we met Kristen for lunch at the Rosedale Mall.  It was Frankie's first visit to a mall and his first ride in his stroller.  He loved it and sat up really well the whole time.  These pictures are before we left as we were practicing to make sure he could sit up in it.

Notice the cool ACDC shirt from Auntie Leah.  He's a rockin' baby.

I love his chubby cheaks.

Duluth--Family Pictures

A couple of weeks ago (I can't believe how time flies) Frankie made his first trip to Duluth to see the Dallum/Lowry family.  We had a great time visiting everyone.  Frankie got to meet his Great-Grandparents and a couple of Aunts and Uncles.  His cousin (Jack and Max) were wonderful with him telling stories and singing songs about planets that get stuck in grown ups heads for weeks afterward!  At least now I can tell you about all the planets in order.  We had a great Dallum family dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's house and got to go home with new blankies, a walker, a cute sign for Frankie's room and a Dr. Seuss giraffe.  We're heading back again for Tim's 30th in March and can't wait to take Frankie to Lake Elora.

One Great Gal


This incredible picture was taken by our friend Crystal Dobson-Totten of Bluebird Portraits (see link on our blog). This is just a "teaser" as there's more to come. We are so thankful to have such wonderful memories captured of our new family. It was an extremely thoughtful gift from a dear long time friend. We love you Crystal!
