A few photos taken by Dana of Oliver. As you can see – Oliver is becoming more and more of a goofball in front of the camera. He loves to make funny faces instead of just smiling like the rest of us. Well – I guess who could blame him right? Cheers! t.

Dana got a CD of classic Disney songs for the car. Oliver’s done pretty good at learning the songs. This one is one of his favs…

Another year and another Easter was upon us. This year, the Easter weekend fell on the same weekend as Oliver’s Papa’s birthday so we had two things to celebrate. So, we headed up to Victoria Harbour for another memorable visit full of good eats, presents and good company. It was such a beautiful day, we spent a good chunk….

It’s no secret that Oliver loves chocolate. I have no idea where he gets it from (Dana) but I would aptly call this post of images: “The Many (chocolate) Faces of Oliver.” I think you’ll especially enjoy his “growling” face…

Another set of fun images of Oliver and I goofing around. This time, we were testing a new lens, the Lensbaby Composer with Sweet 35 Optics. It’s a lens that allows you to tilt and shift your perspective to get some pretty crazy blurred edges. It’s a manual focusing…

I’m not really a morning person. Never have been and frankly, I doubt I ever will. But something that makes mornings a lot more bearable is having Oliver come up to our room and cuddle with us in bed. When he was younger, we never really brought him into our bed. Honestly, he wasn’t a baby that wanted to be…

Oliver continues to get better at writing his name. It’s still a work in progress, but he’s happy to try and we’re happy that he is just….trying. He certainly loves his chalkboard. He’s also getting better at taking photos of us. He has a hard time holding the DSLR and looking through the viewfinder (what 3-year-old wouldn’t?) but…

has been in swimming lessons at the Making Waves Swimming School for a couple of years now. He’s learning so much and is becoming so comfortable in the water that how can we not continue to enroll him year after year?

It should come as no surprise that Oliver loves technology. He is my son after all. So when he’s looking all cute in his pajamas, watching some Cars 2 shorts on youtube, you’d better believe I pull out my camera and get a few photographs to document the moment. Any proud papa would…

Just a couple quick shots of Oliver and Dana looking so cute and comfortable all curled up on the couch together. These are some of the best times for us – that’s for sure.

Oliver loves cars. Period. Exclamation Point. Whatever you want to put after that sentence, it applies. We’re not sure where he gets it from because neither Dana nor I share the same drive (no pun intended) for automobiles. I mean, we like them but we don’t LOVE them the same way Oliver does…

Oliver received a leapfrog learning device from his Grandma and Papa for Valentine’s Day. This is him opening it.

So today was a biggie. Well it was for us at least. Dana took Oliver to her salon (Soho Salon & Spa) to get Oliver’s hair styled for once. Oliver has been getting the nine dollar hair cuts for a while and it was time to see…

Oliver and I took another visit to Grandma and Papa’s house – this time to celebrate my birthday. It’s been a great winter to head north because for the most part, the roads have been good and it’s nice to escape to some snow! We haven’t had much down here…

Now I believe last entry I talked about hibernating on the couch in our cozy living room during the winter. Yup – last time we made some goofy faces and snapped some pictures. It was fun. This time, we actually really did document our newest Sunday afternoon ritual. And even though…

During the winter months here in Canada, it’s not easy to get outside with a little one when it’s so frickin’ cold. Ok, so we’ve been lucky this year and we’ve had a very mild (touch wood) winter. But it doesn’t stop Dana and I from wanting to just hibernate in our warm and cozy…

We haven’t had much snow this winter and any that has fallen, it’s pretty much disappeared before our eyes. So when New Years Eve came around and we realized there was enough snow on the ground to get out and make Oliver his first…

Wow – was Christmas day a lot of fun this year! We had Santa pay us a visit early Christmas morning and he spoiled us rotten. SPOILED. ROTTEN. We had a lot of fun opening all the gifts that were left under our tree. I then got to working on cooking…

Every year we’ve taken Oliver to visit Santa at the Bramalea City Centre. When Santa comes there, he is always in a good mood and Oliver really enjoys seeing him. It’s also really fun to…

Another year has past and another Lacelle family Christmas party is upon us. This year it was a little quieter than previous years, which made it a lot more cozy! Every year, Santa Claus makes a stop in Woodbridge for all the kids. Oliver loves…
