March M.A.M.s

Excerpt from What a big memory you have Bastien, Mar. 11:

So, I know that I’ve mentioned showing Bastien my family pictures and telling him people’s names. Well, I also showed him the picture of us from Niagara Falls last year and mentioned names again. When we were looking at Sybille’s pictures she was sort of ‘quizzing’ Bastien on who people were. He didn’t get everyone right away, but hey, we all looked different! When she pointed to my Mom she said ‘this is Holly’s Mom, what’s her name?’ and without missing a beat Bastien says ‘Sue’! It was incredible. I don’t mean to say that he shouldn’t have remembered that, it’s just, not having been around kids his age so much I don’t know what they should and shouldn’t be able to do. Do you see what I mean? My theory for Dad and Lisa is that ‘Sue’ is just easier for him to say than ‘Mike’ and ‘Lisa’. ‘Lisa’ he can say not bad, but he seems to have a bit of trouble with ‘Mike’. Just think guys, when you come in July he’ll already know your names!

Excerpt from She’ll be coming ’round the mountain when she comes…, Mar. 18:

On a very funny note; tonight at supper Bastien said that after he was finished eating he was going to break the snow mountains (or mountains with snow, I’m not sure exactly how it translates). It was said with very serious intent. I had to stifle a giggle.

Excerpt from Time to get caught up, Mar. 30:

I took a package of cookies (4 inside) along with us and I said ’2 for me and 2 for you’? He agreed which was very nice of him because sometimes he doesn’t want to share. I really should have given him more (like an apple, but he didn’t want that…he wanted a pudding, but there were none!) because he only ate a pickle and a cheese snack for lunch. I was just running a little late and wanted to make sure we got there on time! I had eaten one cookie on the way there and gave him one. Once the appointment was over and we were back in the car, he said the other 2 cookies were for him, that he wanted 3. That was fine because he didn’t eat much at lunch. Then he changed his mind and said we would break the last one in half, so I could have a half. It was one of the sweetest things he’s done since I’ve been here.

Excerpt from Free Coke Zero for everyone!, Mar. 31

Last night Sylvain was laying down while the rest of us were finishing dinner. He had just eaten and had started to cry. So I pick him up to see if he needs to burp. Nothing. All of a sudden he lets out the longest burp of life! It was hilarious, we were all laughing because it just kept going and going and going and going and you get the picture. Maybe it just seemed extra long at the time, but I’m sure it’s the longest one I’ve heard from him yet!
