Day #363 (Sat., Jan. 1, 2011) – New Years Day

Today is the last full day in Canada. Tomorrow we will be flying back to the US of A. Little Katie has no idea of all that needs to get done before we fly back to the States.

2011-01-01 - Birthday CupcakeSince my mother won’t be able to celebrate little Katie’s birthday in person this year, she decided that she would like to have a pre-birthday birthday party. She purchased a dozen little cupcakes, we put a candle in one of them and lit it (see photo to the left), and balanced little Katie on her knees and took some pictures. I took the actual picture while my wife provided all the animation to get little Katie to laugh during the photo shoot.

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather, so my wife did the bulk of the packing while I looked after little Katie. Just looking after our little chipmunk was enough to sap my energy as well…

Little Katie crawled up to my mother’s lazyboy chair and said “UpA” this afternoon. Clearly she wanted to go “up” and sit in it, and we obliged.

My sister played “Paddy Cake” with little Katie this afternoon. Little Katie was doing a good job of pushing her hands back with her own.
