She is a present; to me and Chris and majorly to King (best gift we ever gave him) – might as well put a big giant bow on her and make it official. Also, for the record King is (and was our very first amazing) present – but a bow just didn’t really fit with his outfit.

We are getting in the Back To School swing, but for us it’s more like First Time Ever Going To School, swing. I’m working on some super fun back to school posts and I hope (don’t hold me to it) to make next week full fun back to school posts.

Our summer has been so go, go, go – it’s nice to have a few grey days where we can just be lazy and not feel like we are missing out. Yesterday instead of rushing off to a park first thing in the morning, and then again somewhere else after nap time – we just lazed around, then went for a lazy walk and rolled in the grass. It was a nice change, also a nice change to not be sweating our little booties off – not that I’m wishing summer away, it’s just nice to have a couple lazy grey days and a bit of forced relaxation.

We have some exciting Back to School posts in the works for August, as well as more of our regular (and newer) features. August is when the internet starts to get a bit busy again (after the June/July summer holiday slow months) people heading back to work and starting to wind back into real life (I know it’s so sad to even think about, real life).

We would love to have you join our awesome line up of sponsors for August and beyond, email [email protected] and request our media kit (with current rates and stats). FYI: rates are increasing in September. Due to 51% increase in stats in the past 5 months, that is holding steady and growing weekly.

Sometimes we stop mid-walk, start dancing and singing in the middle of the sidewalk on busy Yonge street, doesn’t everybody? I’ll answer that one – by the looks we get from our audience of on lookers I’m going to say that’s a big fat, NO. For this specific street dancing and singing interlude I was lucky enough to have my camera in my handy dandy backpack, with a quick grab and fumble of settings (I made a vow to myself to never ever use auto, it’s been rocky but worth it) I snapped away like a crazy lady singing along with these cuties.

This boy has all of a sudden noticed the camera at the slightest glimpse of me sliding to unlock the iPhone or adjusting the settings of the SLR, he jumps into King pose mode. His little personality is bursting with awesomeness, he is a little social butterfly and has taken the comedian role in every kiddo social situation (the spitting image of his hilarious Dad). He is seriously silly, which is seriously awesome. photos from my iphone (instagram: @baby_blackbird)
