One month later...

Whoah! Has it really been a month since I blogged last? That's crazy! And I'm sorry to those of you that try to follow on a regular basis. This past month has been busy. We had Lochlan's home-iversary which I'll get to and then I started a new job at Costco. Mat leave is officially over! : (  So sad, yet exciting at the same time. I'm really looking forward to the many great things that are to come in our lives. This time next year, Abby will be starting school. She keeps talking about school and how right now she's only three and that when she's four, she's going to school. So cute! Hope that enthusiasm keeps up! She even likes to do her "homework." I have some pre-k workbooks that we do together. It's a start anyway.

I've been working full time hours but was only hired for 0 hours! Not sure how I'm going to juggle it all with supply teaching, but I'm confident it will all work out.  Rob's back to school now too with the start of the new school year yesterday. It was so nice to have him home for the summer. We really enjoyed a lovely summer together as a family. (already can't wait for next summer!)

Oh dear, I just realized all my pictures are downstairs on the other computer. I will post new pics tomorrow! Promise!

Right now, I'm trying to remember what happened in the last month.

Lochlan had a doctor's appointment with Dr. Moore, his pediatrician early last week. He is 16lbs, 4 1/4 ounces and is 28 1/2 inches long! He is now moved into the next size of jammies! I found that out in the middle of the night last week! He woke up, and was dressed in shorts style jammies and wouldn't settle so I decided to change him into full on jammies. I put on one pair, and they didn't fit. By a long shot actually. So yes, we are now into 9-12 month sizes for pajamas!  Still wearing 3-6 months shorts and pants mostly, but is slowly moving into the 6-9 sizes as well. So strange to think that at 16 months, he's still wearing those sizes!!!

Slowly catching up though. At this rate, he should be 24 pounds by the time he's two!

Dr. Moore is very pleased with his progress. Weight gain included. And developmentally, he's amazing! He's cruising furniture and still crawling around at lightning speed. He's pointing and signing "more" and waving bye bye, and even saying a few words! I think his favourite is Dada, although he's been saying "daddy' lately too. More like dad-dee. And he says "yes" or "yeah", and tank tu (thank you) or tanks (thanks) He's said "mama" before too but I haven't heard it in a very long time.    : ( 

I've been trying to write down some of the cute things that Abby says. I started a blog about it if you're interested in a chuckle of two. It's

Anyway, Lochlan's Home-ivesary was great. It was nice to have both sides of our family here. We did it potluck style which worked out perfectly.  I really wish that I'd written it down way before now because I know that I had much more to say about it. Right now, I'm tired and can't seem to put all that I had wanted to say into words. I'll get some pics posted tomorrow and perhaps backblog a bit too!

Thanks for following along.


  1. Way to celebrate "Coming Home Day".

    I still do something to signify the day. And this year it will be 7 years.

    Its wonderful to hear how he is doing. And I hope you manage to continue supply teaching and balancing that with Costco. Saw you there about a week ago, but you were busy, and I noticed you after I was in a line.

  2. Hey Jamie. I've supplied a few days over the past few weeks and expect it to pick up soon.

    Hope you say hi the next time you are in Costco. It'd be great to see you.
