P A R T Y ! I am 3 !!

Filed under: Milestones,Places Visited,Special Events — Dad @ 20:54



Etienne turned 3 on September 22, but we waited until October the 6th to have his party. This gave him a bit more time at his new school to get familiar with his classmates who we then invited to the party. We also had other friends along for all of the fun. We had the party at My Gym and they did a really good job with a mix of kids ( from 3 to 6 years old ). Happy Birthday Etienne !!

Actually 3 !

Filed under: Milestones,Special Events — Dad @ 02:20

The big day arrived and our little giant finally turned 3, only 3, yes he is the size of a 5 year old according to the doctor and he seems to comprehend at the level of a 4 year old, but he is still just 3 years old.



With him now in school the changes and growth are going to be exponential and Lanelle is going to have her hands full trying to keep him stimulated, interested and out of trouble !!

Happy Birthday Etienne !

Blowing the candle and celebrating being two ! Hooray !

We celebrated Etienne’s birthday today. He is now 2 and a real little boy. I think his big sister has a lot to do with just how big he is, not physically ( which he is ) but in other ways. He has learned to sing and dance; play all sorts of made up games; cook at the outdoor kitchen; ride bikes, trikes and scooters; and yet he has also found his own “style”.

It is hard to imagine life before Etienne, much like it was hard to imagine life before Cezanne. He is a busy little guy, always up to something. He has his two year appointment on Monday and we’ll post the stats once we have them.

Happy Birthday my BIG little boy !!

Cezanne Starts School – Etienne What Now ?

Filed under: Just Everyday,Milestones,Special Events — Dad @ 05:51


Today was a milestone day for Cezanne and Etienne had his whole world turned upside down… His sister, his playmate, his buddy, his pal was now whisked off to school each and every morning… Oh well, he now gets to go for a morning walk to a place with lots of kids and a playground and then gets to do more walking / strollering and when he is returned home, he has sole access to all the toys. I think he will be just fine 😉

September 22, 2010 – Etienne Caelan Lambert turns 1 !!

I had to travel for work Monday & Tuesday but made it home late on Tuesday night so that I could be home for the big day ! We took Etienne to the toy store to see if he would pick out a birthday gift for himself. We showed him the big red Chuck the Truck and it was a keeper. Chuck also has a bunch of friend which we bought and Etienne now plays with his trucks and does seem to like anything with wheels !

Etienne figures out crawling !

Filed under: Milestones,Physical Development — Dad @ 06:30

With no direct help or input the little guy just got up on his knees and started crawling. I suspect that blisters and calluses that formed on his feet and toes from the odd scoot he had been using to get around got to him. We were so surprised and he has now been doing it regularly, no looking back now…

He has also decided that he likes to climb the stairs.

The other day he climbed his way from the basement to the 2nd floor stopping to catch his breath on each floor and landing. His forward and upward motion is great and the only risk of falling down is when he stops and looks around.

The next few months are going to be interesting….

First Swim

Filed under: Milestones — Dad @ 04:18

Ok, so the title is a bit misleading, the swimming is probably exaggerated but none the less, Etienne was in his summer swimming gear in a pool with water – that is about as close to swimming as what he will get for quite a few years. As you can tell he loved it ! By comparison, Cezanne’s first equivalent swim outside was at the start of May 2007

Now there are 2 (teeth !)

Filed under: Milestones,Physical Development — Dad @ 05:56

Etienne now has 2 teeth – both front bottom teeth are now fully visible…

He does not seem to be as bad as Cezanne was ( she would throw up for 2 or 3 days before cutting a tooth ). We just hope this continues…
