Yeah, so my promise to keep this blog updated regularly kind of slipped through the cracks… and by ‘kind of’, I mean REALLY slipped. Sorry ’bout that. Here’s a summary update of what’s going on in our household to give you an idea of what’s been keeping from posting here.
In January, we took a trip to Brechin to visit my parents at a resort they were staying at, and we spent just over a week in beautiful Scottsdale Arizona to celebrate Matt and Allison’s wedding, so January was a bit of a whirlwind. We also headed to Ottawa for Winterlude over Family Day weekend (a family tradition), but couldn’t skate on the canal like we do every year due to ice conditions.
Sebastian is growing like a weed and has five brand new teeth which he uses judiciously on all manner of food, toy and anything else he can get his hands on. He’s graduated from sitting and rolling to a zippy army crawl, so we’re furiously baby-proofing the house before he starts doing wind sprints through the house.
He’s still not the greatest sleeper in the world, so Danielle and I are still more than a little sleep-deprived, but Sebby is so happy and playful during his waking hours, we hardly even notice anymore.
To add some more drama to our busy and exciting lives, I made a career change just over a week ago. While I used to do communications in the financial services industry, I’m now doing communications in the financial services industry. Sounds like the same job? Sort of. Now I’m working as a consultant, which changes the nature of the work, the pace and the environment significantly, but after a full week, I haven’t quit, so it looks like I’m in for the long haul. It’s actually really interesting work, and a great way to give my career a boost, so I’m excited.
So life is good. Work is going great and most importantly, Sebby and Danielle are healthy, happy and we’re all taking advantage of the time we have to spend together.
Now that all that is out of the way, I’ll be posting some more updates in the coming days, and hopefully getting back into the habit of posting here shortly. Thanks for your patience.
