Happy Canada Day to all of my friends here in the north. We're hot and sweaty thanks to the heat wave (which, ironically, I find more uncomfortable than the heat in South Africa) but I'm happy its finally July. I love July even though its my birthday month and we've never really gotten along. However, I will always love that free and easy feel that is July. Tons of tourists milling around, markets and events every weekend... school kids mucking about etc.
Piper is walking steady and she says "Hi" and "Uh Oh"-still no direct "mama" for me. I'm still called "dada" even though the whole world can see she's clearly chuckling when she says it. Piper is a practical joker of note at 14 months old.
