It’s been quite awhile since I posted last. To soften that blow, I give you, our Easter Family Photo. We tried. We really did. And yes, we are going for a theme here. Nothing this kid loves better than a family photo!
But holy shit, how time is flying. It’s not that I am avoiding posting, or can’t find the time to blog – it’s that I don’t even think about it anymore. Life got really busy, really fast! I’ll give y’all a month-by-month run down:
January: First family trip to Mexico. As you can see, she hated it.
February: I travelled to Montreal, and we started sleep-training. For the first time that month since she was born, we went to bed at the same time in the same bed. We also resumed watching movies together and eating warm dinners together, accompanied by a glass of wine. In short, living the life. Here’s a shot of her snuggling with gramma. The g-parents came in for a visit which was nice, however she screamed all through our early dinner out.
March: I travelled to California for work, and for the first time ever, experience the deep, soul-throttling ache of missing the baby. I was tired, maybe a little bit hungover, and kept seeing young’uns with their parents and my heart physically hurt. I got home before too much chaos ensued emotionally, but came down with terrible food poisoning or a stomach flu or something. I was a barfy mess by the time I walked through the door. FUN! In other news, the baby started on food for the first time. Here we go, baby led weaning! The kid loves her some food. Look at that yogurt/banana covered little face. Also, we lost our minds and bought a new house. No, we weren’t looking. It happened spontaneously after going for a walk and stumbling into an open house. 2 days later we had a signed deal. Simply unheard of in this insane market. Upside, we will now have more space for this kid (and me!) to stretch our legs. I also travelled to Ottawa, with a freshly pregnant and very nauseous member of my team. I don’t miss those days with my poor, sick wife!
April: Well, here we are in April! Life is just trucking along. I travelled to Vancouver for work and facetiming with this kid didn’t go so well. She was baffled by the whole thing, frankly.
Aaaaaaand then we sold the house before it went to market because the universe is smiling upon us. Aaaaaaand then one of my best old friends came to visit from Calgary and little N and he loved each other and it made my cold, black heart feel nice and warm.
So now we are all up to date. There’s going to be a small period of calm before we get ready and move. Work is going wonderfully and full of exciting things. The missus is doing better now that the baby is sleeping more and we can spend more time together. Everything, in short, is coming up roses. Happy spring!
