Rite of passage

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Anyone who knows me knows that I spend all winter waiting to go to Starlight. More specifically I can’t wait to go swimming in the lake. As a child my mom used to say that we spent 95% of our waking hours in the water! So it was no surprise that on our first really warm day here I took Sabine swimming with me and she seemed to enjoyed it (no crying at least!) To say that I was as happy as a clam would be an understatement.

Swimming

Sabine the blond

Mikaela and I decided to see what Sabine might look like if she had blond hair … I think we”ll skip bleaching it … for now.

Kayaking

While we were in Tofino everyone did some paddling. Here Sabine is getting some expert instruction from the older members of her family. (Thanks Krissy for the great photos)

Giggle Fest

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Sabine has just started giggling. I first got her to giggle weeks ago, but wasn’t able to repeat it until last night. Here are a few clips strung together of Bebeth getting Sabine to giggle. In my unbiased opinion … adorable. (Which is why we spent so much time last night doing crazy things trying to get her to do it again and again!)

Flower Child

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

Sabine received some new hand-me-down outfits, courtesy of her friends Matina and Terry. This one is particularly cute, and makes her look quite a bit like a flower child from the 70s.
