A Fond Farewell

From Front, left to right: Matthew, Austin, Ariana, Christina, Ella, Fiona, Maddie, Jasmine

Matthew and I were lucky enough to join a baby group to which all the mothers and babies seem to get along famously. We have stayed in touch from that first 6 weeks almost 2 years ago; sadly a couple of weeks ago, we had to say good luck and farewell to one of our dearest friends. Nat and her daughter Ariana (and new son Luca and husband Dal) moved to Ottawa for better career/family opportunities. We'll miss them so much! Here are a few pictures from the day, and a few more taken January, 2006. Time flies when you have great friends to celebrate children with!

Matthew will be quite a catch: already wanting to be in the kitchen cooking for his wife (with Ariana, of course)

Matthew, Austin and Maddie enjoying the inflatable gym (by enjoying, I mean jumping on each other and crying, then getting out, climbing up, sliding down and going in for more!!)

We had such a great day, and we've had such a wonderful couple of years! Matthew aleady has such a great group of friends (Daddy's excited that 95% are girls! I've said it before, but here it is again: our kid's a STUD!).

Just Because He's So F'n Cute!!!

Isn't he getting big??? He practically takes up the whole bed. Well, when he's not curled up with his little bum in the air, as per usual. If anyone gives me crap about the soother, I defy them to put Matthew to bed without it!

Let's See Who Checks This....

Well, Matthew is going to be a big brother! He'll be really good at it, but I think now's probably the time to work on the whole "MINE!!!" issue!

The new arrival is scheduled for December 13th, but like most scheduled arrivals, it's mostly an estimate, depending on turbulance and delays.

That's it for now. And as for the pictures of my growing belly, it's not going to happen. You're welcome.
