2021 Highlights: Week 15

We've had a week of absolutely beautiful weather. So I can (somewhat) ignore the state of the world, the third COVID wave that we've entered, and the looming threat of further restrictions in the province. I know it's a privilege to turn off the news and focus on my sunny little bubble but sometimes it's… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 15

2021 Highlights: Week 14

This is already old news, I guess, since Easter was a week ago but I can't resist an opportunity to share some cute pictures and it was technically a highlight of this week: Hand-me-downs!

We didn't have friends over or go to anybody's home. We didn't play at the park. I didn't set foot… Continue reading Life: What We Did in April

May Update

May has been full of hot days - sunshine, backyard, beach, and some ice cream! It's been fantastic. We started off the month with some time at the beach: It was Rose's first real introduction to the ocean and she loved it! Didn't even squawk when we dipped her in the sea. Pearl can happily… Continue reading May Update

Life in April

Rose was six months at the very end of March and so we have started introducing solid foods. This was her face when she first tasted apple sauce. (Pearl was thrilled for Rose to start eating real food and really wanted to hold the spoon for her little sister. Later she told me that this… Continue reading Life in April
