Playing Catch-Up (plus some Big News at the end, for those who read that far)


Oh, hello! What a lot there is to catch up on. Hmmm... It may be time to resort to numbered points...
1. Jai and I had a great time in Mexico. It's not the vacation we would have chosen for ourselves, but we did enjoy it thoroughly. The beaches were spectacular, and it was such a wonderful feeling to go swimming in an ocean that is warm. And full of giant fish. Okay, the first time the fish swarmed me, I was a little freaked, but we worked it out in the end.

2. Griffin turned two!!! Happy Birthday, little G! You light up our lives every single day. He had a great time visiting with Grandma and Grandpa, and did just fine without the two of us - though I think we were all mutually glad to see each other when we got home!

This is the present he got from Jai and I - an awesome $2 Frenchy's find that we spent a day fixing up, just for him (scraping off the pink nail polish "Tina"s with hearts above the "i"s - as tempting as it was to leave those on!)
2b.) Oh yeah, and Easter happened (it has been a while, hasn't it?) Griffin loved the whole thing - bunnies and baskets and eggs.

3. Life has returned to it's usual, crazy, hectic-ness. The weather has been abysmal lately, but we did manage to sneak a day out to visit the public gardens in Annapolis Royal.

4. The Really Big News - for those who haven't guessed it. Baby #2 is on it's way! Oh yes, I knew there was a reason I couldn't find any extra energy for anything lately. There you go, the oldest excuse in the book. I'm feeling much better now, though, and so I'm slowly but surely returning to all the usual activities (i.e. blog posting!) I'm sure there will be lots more talk of this as time passes, so we'll just leave it at that for now. Till next time:)
