Wow! Shame on me. I have been quite negligent, haven’t I? I honestly have no idea where the last 7 weeks have gone. It’s been a whirlwind, for sure. Life in our house has been going pretty good. We’ve had some bumps getting ourselves settled since our new family member arrived, but we’re working through them. The best news, though is Matthew. He has adjusted absolutely wonderfully to Marcus and the changes that have happened. I know I’ve said it before but he’s like a little ol’ man. He told me the other day that he couldn’t believe he wanted a sister…lol! He has more hugs and kisses for his brother than I think I have received in the last 11 years from him! Considering what I had myself prepared for, his reaction and acceptance have been so enjoyable. It’s been so amazing to sit and watch Matthew interact with Marcus. He has so much love, he’s so gentle and he stops whatever he’s doing to come and make sure his brother is alright. Hhhhmm, I wonder how long that will continue? LOL!
We are anxiously awaiting July 13. Mike will be taking 10 weeks Paternity Leave and we can’t wait!! This will be the first time since we were married that we both had any amount of time off during the summer. We have a few plans – we rented a cabin in The Highlands for a few days and we are planning a trip to New Brunswick in August. It’ll be gone before we know it, but I intend on enjoying every last second of it!
Alright, so before I interrupted my blog wayyyy back in September to follow my pregnancy, I was talking about the Story of Tracey and Mike. After receiving a couple of requests to resume the story, I’m going to attempt to get my butt back in gear. We left off at the Honeymoon, didn’t we? Maybe I’ll go back to September and refresh my mind and hopefully tomorrow we’ll get back at it. There’s still so much to the story….
Until next time…
