Bits & bites
Mother's day passed peacefully & uneventfully. We visited my folks in (not so) sunny Southwestern Ontario, and while we were there my mom & I visited my aunt, who was babysitting my cousin's 10 week old baby. Wow, was that child crabby. Apparently she doesn't like to be held & will only tolerate her bouncy chair if you bounce it continually. It appeared that she had a fair bit of tummy gas, though, which might explain the crabbiness. At one point I said to her, "you, my little friend, are making me reconsider parenthood". What a contrast to my little niece, Evie. She's pretty good natured, for a 5 week old baby. Maybe she just likes me. Who knows? I do seem to be getting more comfortable with small babies, which is a bonus since will soon (well, relatively soon) have one of my own. Once we get back from our trip to the UK we'll start setting up the nursery. I've got a few ideas of what to do, so I'm pretty anxious to get started. On another note, since Andrew got a car allowance at work we are looking to buy a second car. We're leaning towards the Mazda 5. That's probably going to wait until after our trip too. Thus concludes another rivetting installment of Road to Wren. Tune in sometime in the next few days for pictures? another post? Lolcats? Who knows?
