Team T-Lo Prognosis 2009

The Canadian budget came out yesterday and it seems to be on everyone's mind (if you are Canadian that is - if not, you probably couldn't care less). Anyway, a lot of people in this country are taking stock of their finances among other things and wondering what 2009 has in store for them. Team T-Lo is no different - so we thought we'd make a few predictions of our own. Here is the Team T-Lo status report for 2009:

+15 (at least) trips to the beach this summer - Team T-Lo is hoping to make up for last summer's dismal weather by having a terrific, warm, sunny summer this year.

+ 2 trips a day to the park - like last year, as soon as the weather warms up, Logan expects to be taken to the park by mommy in the morning and by daddy in the evening.

+ 1 booster seat - Logan is going to be a big boy this year and start sitting on a booster seat instead of a high chair. *sob* my boy is growing up so fast.

+ 1 big boy bed - Logan is also going to be making the move to his own bed instead of sleeping in his crib. *tear* I can't take much more of this growing up business.

+1 or 2 bedrooms (we have 2 now) - We are expecting to buy our very first house sometime in 2009!

-1 green machine - yes, it's about time that we think about replacing our wonderful green Grand Prix. It's going to be 15 years old in 2009!

+1 step up in the Agriculture Canada job ladder - Terry expects to advance his career by applying for jobs that are a level above the one he's got now

-1 diaper clad Logan - we are expecting to have a potty trained boy by the summer.

+20 pounds for Tawny - see last prediction for the reason behind this drastic gain!

And lastly, but most importantly (yes, more important than a house)!

+1 baby - Most of my readers now this already, but Team T-Lo is expecting a baby in August of this year! Here are the first photos:

Not much to see yet, but the baby is only the size of a plum.

I think we're going to have a great year!

Sounds like it will be a very exciting, action-packed year!

And don't forget to add to the list: the return of slurpees to your diet, once your new little one arrives! LOL.

Hey, just catching up, Tawny, and have to say: CONGRATULATIONS, Team T-Lo!!! Think you'll keep the T-Lo tradition? I'm scoping out Lo- names in-between typing these sentences.

Tawny said...

You're totally right Anita - it's going to be a great year. And I need to add "+100 slurpees after the pregnancy to make up for the lost slurpees this summer!"

I wish we could keep the "Team T-Lo" name, but I'm not so sure. There aren't many "Lo" names that we like. We might have better luck thinking up a name that starts with "T" though. Or else we'll have to come up with something clever to replace it.

If you care for any "C" names, you could evolve into TLC.
