Today Audrey and I spent our first full day together as Mommy got ready to cater a wedding. We had a nice breakfast with banana oatmea l mush and Mommy headed off to work.
Audrey got to ride in the RSX for the first time ever, and loved it. Nice big window to look out with her backwards facing seat. We bought some window plastic to seal in her bedroom window to try and keep some of the winter cold out. Audrey helped me by watching me put up the sheet of plastic quietly from her crib, playing with her toys.
Then we called Great Granny to see how she is doing and Audrey listened intently to Granny’s voice, but didn’t have anything to say. Granny got the video Mommy had produced and sent out to all the Grandparents both new and great.
We had a lovely dinner at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Including a demonstration of how she can rock back and forth in her booster seat and move the chair it is strapped to. Then it was a very tired Audrey heading home, having a bath and bottle and off to sleep. Mommy didn’t make it home until 4am.
I love you Grandpa. 1927-2011
I passed my M test today to give me a full motorcycle driver’s license. It wasn’t that hard, just a ride through some streets. It was pretty windy on the highway for my little bike, but it was just one exit up, one exit down.
I’m happy to announce the birth of our daughter Audrey.
I received a Centenary Medal from the Lifesaving Society today in recognition for my leadership and volunteering that I performed over my years as a lifeguard, instructor, examiner and competition official. The medal on the left is my Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal
“The Centenary Medal, commemorating our 100 years of saving lives in Canada, pays tribute to the individuals who made or who are making significant contributions to the Society.
The medal features the rescue engraving from the Society’s 1908 Bronze Medallion encircled by the Society’s Latin motto – Whomsoever you see in distress, recognize in him a fellow man. The reverse presents the Society’s 100th Anniversary logo flanked by the anniversary dates 1908-2008 underscored by A Century of Saving Lives.”
