POD: Feburary Picture of Me

From Picture of the Day 2013

Continuing my picture of me series, here is February’s picture. I threw on my Blue Jay’s cap to celebrating the start of spring training.

POD: Reading to Violet

From Picture of the Day 2013

Tonight Jacob shared a sweet moment with his little sister. While waiting for Family Game night to start he picked up one of her books and started to read to her. It was such a great moment I had to capture it.

POD: Violet’s Portrait of Nan

From Picture of the Day 2013

This morning before heading off to our day’s Violet showed me her latest artistic work. It’s a portrait of her grandmother. She was so proud of it that she posed with it before putting it on a place of honour on the fridge.

POD: Doctors visit

From Picture of the Day 2013

Last night Jacob woke up with an earache, so far this winter we had managed to mostly avoid them. So this morning it was off to the doctor to get it looked at and pick up a prescription for some antibiotics and ear drops. While we were waiting to see the doctor I snapped today’s picture of the day.

POD: Climbing Around

From Picture of the Day 2013

Today we were at one of Jacob’s school friends Birthday party at a local indoor playground. Of all the pictures I took today these of the kids climbing seemed to be the best for my picture of the day.

POD: Rolling up the rim

From Picture of the Day 2013

This morning I made a coffee run to Tim Horton’s and for the first time it wasn’t my desire for coffee that inspired the visit, it was Melissa’s. Over the last few weeks she’s developed a taste for coffee, not something I expected from her. As you can see from today’s picture she seems really with happy with her cup of coffee. I do like being able to sit down with Melissa and enjoy a coffee.

POD: Morning with Violet

From Picture of the Day 2013

Friday is Violet’s Gymnastics day, and to-day I got the pleasure of taking her to her class. I captured today’s picture of the day as we waited for her class to start.  My little girl is trying so hard to grow up, wanting to do everything for herself. Today she kept insisting that she could change by herself in the girls change room. Of course I couldn’t have that, so I convinced her that she had to show me she could do it herself first then maybe next time she could go into the girls change room alone. I’m not sure what I’ll do the next time I take her to Gymnastics.

POD: Sleeping Violet

From Picture of the Day 2013

This evening when I went to check on Violet I found her passed out in her chair. I guess that she was so hard not to fall asleep in her bed that she ended up in her chair.

POD: Trains with Nan

From Picture of the Day 2013

I guess Jacob’s train bug wasn’t satisfied with the track he made last night before bed. This afternoon the kids and Nan covered Jacob’s room floor with an intricate track.  From the pictures Nan took it’s clear they had fun doing it.

POD: Bring out the Trains

From Picture of the Day 2013

This evening Jacob did something I hadn’t seen him do in a while. He pulled out his trains and started building a track. He had an intricate design in his mind when he started and only bed time stopped him from completing it. He says he’ll continue it tomorrow, but I’m sure there will be other distractions that keeps him from it. As our family contemplates starting our spring cleaning early this year. With spring cleaning comes the purging of old toy’s and one of the things on the bubble is Jacob’s train set, but watching him tonight I wonder if I could really part with it.
