***warning- this post is long and picture crazy*** I don't want to jinx it but the past couple months with Mr. Ozzie have been fantastic. He sleeps like the dead, eats everything in site, and overall is beyond stinkin cute. He just turned 2 this week. 2 I say. yikes. time for another? not likely. BUT we did get to have a few festivities for our little guy in spite of us all being sick on our death beds ALL last weekend.
Ozzie has been into nothing but Dinosaurs ever since we took him to the Calgary Zoo to the dino exhibit. He was so excited to see them, and then someone pushed a button and they started to roar. well, that was the end of it, he screamed bloody murder the rest of the time there, and dick literally was running to get him outta there so he'd finally calm down. funny. So then, somehow my kids ended up watching Ice age 3 (dawn of the Dinosaurs) shortly after that, and he was all of the sudden hooked. All he kept saying all day long was "Dido...Roar!" 5 million times. So that is how i decided on a dinosaur theme for his little party.
We went to Nicholas Sheran to swim first cause he loves the little slide there, and then we had snacks and cake with a few friends after. it was really cute, and fun, and ozzie got spoiled big time.
the only swimming pic i got, but he looks so cute and big in this one
the spread+ karen(sorry i HAD to put this one in, made me laugh:)
playing with his glow n' the dark dino, from his cupcake he didn't touch. should have had birthday corn on the cob, THAT he would have eaten:) Stage left
cooper of course, who loved the pepperoni's like no one else:)
i think the icing was a Little bit messy
Present time, and ALL the kids wanted in on it, so cute
Later that day we just hung out, played with toys and such. His actual birthday was the next day, and originally dick was supposed to work all day and then leave for saskatoon, but seeing as people like to cancel dental work lots in september, he had the morning off, so we took the kids to one of Ozzies ( well, actually both of their) favorite places on earth. The Pet Store. It has gotten so bad around here, that every time we get in the car he starts saying "Pet... Pet... Pet..." in hopes that he can subliminal message me into taking them there. it usually works. He loves seeing all the pets, but i'm pretty sure the puppies and "nemo's" as he calls them are his favorite. then we went for family lunch at moxies, another of his favorites...ok, actually our favorites. but he doesn't care:) And then chilled the rest of the day, played with his super awesome car track and had pasta for dinner which he loves to say so clearly in 2 syllables, "PA, STA"

no birthday is complete without dancing in your birthday suit
The best and most awesome things about Ozzie at 2 are:
- his yammering. mostly in-coherent, but staggered with clear words throughout. he even tries some pretty cute sentences like, " mo milk peas mommy" Other favorite words, "Dido"- dinosaur, "Boo-doo"- bottle(which is actually a sippy cup), mommy daddy, ozzie but not greta even though he knows how to say it, ROAR, truck, "wack-you"- thank-you, Pet, Bye house, rock, asleep(followed by snoring sounds)
-his closed eyes cheese grin. love.
- he is so sweet, and gives hugs and kisses and bonks on command without hesitation
- he EATS!!!! i never have to worry about him, he loves almost everything. except rice, which makes dick really upset. but he feels better immediately when I say, Ozzie what do you want for lunch, and his response is "Soup". i swear the soup obsession is hereditary, no lie.
-he loves Greta and will copy basically anything she does, good or bad. they play pretty good together actually
-finally cause this is so long, He is SO sweet at night asking for a million primary songs by name, "rainbows" "try try try" " jesus said" "of God"
well to sum it up...we met one romantic, starry night...on MSN...(for real).. after some good friends thought we'd be a complimentary match, and sneakily sent our e-mail addresses to each other. Good thing they were right! We've been inseparable since, married for 6 years, have 2 adorable kids and can make some killer won-ton soup!
