Yes, I’m excited. Yes, I know the novelty will wear off by March when we’ve had 5 months of snow. But, for a newbie it’s pretty darn exciting to be out walking and think to yourself “those raindrops look different…. oh wait…. it’s SNOWING!!”
I tried to take some photos but I don’t think you can really see the snow falling…
Anyhoo, sorry for the radio-silence here in blog world. I really haven’t had anything exciting happen in the last week! Our days are filled with Sylvie’s routine… up at 730, brekkie together (tried vegemite toast for the first time – yum!)
then a bit of a play with the toys and practice crawling time (still only a bum shuffle and worm dance, but she does seem quite talented at that :). Then nap-time from 930 till 1030 or so, in which time I have my shower, clean up the apartment a bit, check emails (write blogs), looks for places to live and other such web-browsing. After Sylvie gets up we have a couple of hours free to get out and about, so I usually bundle her into the stroller, and we go exploring/shopping/coffeeing/lunching. Sometimes I will let her nap in the pram so I get another hour of unrestricted time (shopping for winter woolies usually!) from about 130 till 230.
After then it gets a bit cold to be out as now we are on daylight savings so it’s been getting dark by about 5pm. So we wander home, usually via the grocery store and I’ll grab some food for dinner. And by the time we get home, Sylvie is ready for dinner, then bath and more play and bed! Phew. The days have been flying by.
I did go out to see some places to live yesterday which was fun. There was one place (out of the 5) that I liked, so we’re going back on Saturday with Crez to check it out again. I’m still a bit stressed trying to decide whether I want to live in a high-rise, or in a town-home type thing. Lots of pros and cons with both. I thought I wanted a town-home (a bit further out of the city) but the place we looked at yesterday was in a high-rise right in a lovely part of downtown (just around the corner from where Oprah lives – so we’d have nice neighbours!), so I’m a bit worried I’ll make a wrong decision and end up hating where we live!
Oh well… I probably just need to sit down an write up a list of pros and cons for both situations. So stay tuned – it might be here on blog-land before long.
So, some more photos from the last week….
We got a new toy which we love… lots of beads to play with, doors to open etc etc.
It was simply a gorgeous weekend last weekend – so we went for a walk. The bean sculpture is magnificent.
The handsome man…
