Some fun photos of Henry and Walter interacting in Cochrane Jan 2018.
I tried out the ski pulk at the Ranche House park, where we're clearly suffering from a low snow year.
Henry LOVED playing on his skis, but mostly he enjoyed poking holes in the snow with his poles. Walter did
amazingly well and fell asleep in his chariot.
Henry has recently discovered the climbing shoes that Aunty Maria got him. He says 'they keep my
feet from slipping Daddy".
Walter absolutely LOVES his illegal walker. It gives Natalia freedom of movement and Walter just has
a blast exploring the house. This is his 8 month photo.
Ever since Saskatchewan, Henry has been asking to go get a 'GT Snoracer'. So we did. Thanks to
Grandma G and Grandma Banda's Christmas money, this cost our house just a bit of tax.
Henry and I took in a rare matinee Flames game. While I decked him out in Flames gear (including his
signed Giordano jersey), he was more excited for the train than the game.
He really wanted to hold his own train ticket (even though at 4 he doesn't need one).
Henry and Daddy waiting for the train to arrive.
Henry and I in our matching signed Gio jerseys. We left the game mid-way into the second though since
my noise-sensitive son had troubles with his headphones around ~90 dBA noise levels. He did really enjoy
the gas flames that blow off at the beginning of the game and when we score.
To salvage the outing, we made a trip to the Core to see what's open at Devonian Gardens. Henry found
a chess set, that he thought was pretty cool.
Now that Walter has started crawling, Henry will sometimes get on the floor and crawl with him too. Walter's
not totally sure what to make of his big brother sometimes, but most of the time, he's just fascinated by him.
I took Henry for a ski at Nakiska (free for bunny slope for him) and he was enthralled with the 'Stop/Go'
foam sign that they have
Henry thinks skiing is pretty fun, but he's mostly jacked about eventually riding the 'big chair lift'.
His only meltdown on the ski slope on this day was when I told him he wouldn't be able to ride the big
chair lift that day since he needs to 'pass a test' first. Since he's not turning or stopping, it would
be a pretty challenging trip to bring him down the big hill. He's mostly just skiing to me as I ski backwards
but I introduced the concept of 'pizza' with his feet.
Henry likes to 'rock his brother' at night, which basically means looking at books together as he's
getting ready for bed. A note that this is Natalia's Grandpa Lynn's rocking chair.
Note the reupholstered seat covers that Natalia did herself.
