October 2008

Nicholas has had a very busy and exciting month of october.
 
Siobhan started putting up Halloween decorations around the house early in the month and we weren’t sure how Nicholas was going to react. The first time he came home from Daycare after most of the decorations were up he was asking questions like, “Are they happy pumpkins?” “Are they Smiling?” He was defintly unsure if he liked these new things. But with our reassurance he was fine and reallly started to love the idea of decorating and having spooky smiling decorations out!

We went to St. John’s for Thankgiving (a tradition we are hoping to continue for the years to come). His Godmom just got a Chocolate Lab puppy named Boone. This was their first time meeting, and Nicholas was scared to death. He cried at first and didn’t want the cute little fellow around. But once he got use to him he was ok. When Boone used to come around, Nicholas would curl up in a ball and say, “He’s kissing me, He’s kissing me,” and we would have to rescue him from all the kisses boone was giving. By the end of it he loved Boone and loved giving him his treats and wanted to be with him while he slept.
 
The day before Thanksgiving we went to Lester’s Farm. We visited the animals, ran through the corn maze, picked out our pumpkins and had a great day. Thanks again Godmom and Steve for letting us come visit.
 
Nicholas and the Pumpkins! 
 
Our most interesting experience of the trip to St. John’s was having Nicholas wake up one morning complaining about his ear. After a few minutes of trying to figure out what was wrong he proclaimed, “I got it” in a somewhat somber tone. When we turned on the light he had an earwig on his finger! Twenty minutes later we were at the Janeway and the doctor checked him out. There was a leg left in there, but nothing to worry about.

About a week ago Nicholas came down with this really nasty cold. We took him to see the nusrse but she said that he was being a trooper and that she didn’t want him to take any antibiotic, just keep doing what we were doing to help him feel better.
 
We carved our pumpkins and Nicholas choose the simplest one for his pumpkin. I choose the pirate’s skull and Siobhan did the Hershey Kiss one. It was fun. Nicholas wouldn’t touch the pumpkin guts but loving trying to help carve them up.

Pumpkins! 
 
Yesterday was his first Daycare party. Nicholas was really excited to put on his GREEN SKELETON costume and Siobhan put on her Tweety costume and off we went.
Tonight is trick or treating and hopefully he will enjoy it. He seems to understand what it is all about and he knows that we have to knock on people’s doors and say Trick or Treat to get candies. Hopefully he will last and not get contrary or tired. Time will tell.

SystemCare/WorldTech Systems Part 4

This topic has been moved to www.ibotbot.com
WorldTech (SystemCare) called again. I missed the beginning of the conversation but as usual they don’t take to well to being turned down for a sale.

There’s not too much to be said about this call, worth a listen, almost word for word the same as previous calls. I confused the poor guy when I try and explain the glossy lcds available on most new laptops, and then he really can’t take no for an answer. Hopefully the next time I will be on my toes and ready for the call!Rene

Targa Newfoundland

A few weeks ago Nicholas and I went to Gander for a night. The main purpose of our trip was to catch some of the Targa Newfounfland action.We got to Gander just in time to see the cars racing through the streets. We found a great spot to park so we could stay in the truck and see over the heads of the other spectators while we stayed nice and warm in the truck. Nicholas loved it, every car he saw he would ask, “Is that a Ford?” or “Is that a Corvette?” He loved it. After we were done with the racing we went to the Arena and checked out the car show. The little man loved it all. We took his picture with a bunch of car and he made sure to examine a bunch of them very carefully.

Hopefully next year’s Targa will be just as much fun for us! 

Jeddore Baby Number 2!

We had a trip to Grand Falls-Windsor yesterday to take care of some business and to have our first ultrasound of our second child. The little one is due sometime in February and it was nice to finally get to see him or her. This time around we wanted to find out what we were having, but the hospital’s policy is to not disclose the sex of the baby.

Hopefully when we go for our second ultrasound in a few months I’ll be able to catch a glimpse and maybe see if it is a boy or a girl.
