Yep that's right, only two more days until we leave for the week long vacation. I am so looking forward to it. Today is my last day at work and then I have just about two whole weeks off. I've learned that I should take time off after my "vacation" just for that extra time to relax and not have to rush right into work. I finally emailed my dad and told him about the baby. I told him on Father's day. He took the news much better than I expected. He congratulated us, and also said it is a BIG surprise! lol. He should be moving back to Canada in 2013. Now, if he will come back to Ontario, or go to Alberta is another question. My younger (1/2) brother lives in Alberta. I am actually kind of excited to have him come back. He is planning to design and build an airplane when he is back. I think that is the funnest thing, and look forward to it. Still haven't felt any baby movement yet, but am not to worried. I know I will soon. It is only 17 weeks after all. Did I mention we get our ultrasound on July 13. That's not far off at all. We still haven't 100% decided to find out the gender or not, but I am thinking we will. We are heavily leaning to that side of things. In all perfect world, we would find out and keep it to ourselves, but we both know that won't happen LOL. Anyway, that's the update for now. I probably won't have time to update again until the vacation if I get cell phone service up there.
Friday, I spent the day with my good friend Joanna and her son Aiden. We had a fantastic time. We went to see my mom at work to show off Aiden to her (he's 8 months). Everyone there just loved him. After that, we went to the local petting zoo. Aiden loved the goats and was affraid of the cow. Just recently there was a horrible occurance at the zoo. Some people broke in and shot some of the bunnies and chickens with a pellet gun and stole a baby goat. How sick? Friday night Nona babysat little Aiden and Ang, Jo and I went to niagara falls tourist strip to watch the weekly fire works display. We missed about half cause we were eating dinner. Lol
Ahhhh..... Two weeks until my vacation ... Actually 10 working days... Then it's off to the cottage!! Yay!! I can't wait. I have to admit I will miss having a nice cold beer by the lake. Seems like everywhere I look there is a cold beer staring me in the face. 15 weeks this week! Seems like time is going by slowely. I'm still not sure if we will find out if it's a boy or girl. I'm leaning more toward finding out this time. Although not knowing would be kind of fun too. We don't even have a cute little Nick name for it while it's in there. I suppose that in the next 5 weeks, I'll start to feel it moving. How will I know?? What will it feel like? I've heard everything from "butterflies" to "waves". Oh.. So much to experience still.
I live with my loving Partner, Angela in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. We share our space with our 2 dogs, 1 cat...and our perfect little girl Maizey.
Since we moved to the town house, everyone is much happier with more space to play!
