Here comes the sun...

At last it appears that spring has officially sprung. For those of you not hanging off the left edge of the continent, we've had a rather wet and cold winter. Really more of a long drawnout post-xmas wet spell that lasted until mid April. Nevermind...it's beautiful outside!

What better reason to head out on our first real adventure - okay, so adventure is probably a strong way of putting it, but for us, setting foot outside the front door is a big deal. There was a mini art & wine festival downtown this weekend, so we packed the family up (I love the way that sounds) and took a walk to see what all the fuss was about. How fun! Well fun for mom and dad at least. The little one slept the entire way. It was really nice to get out in the world together and get some fresh air.

Last night we went over to MayMay's (Jana's mom) house to have a belated birthday celebration for Jana. In all the hubbub of the baby coming two days prior, her birthday went by without much notice. It was nice to have a little cake and let all the cousins say hi to Natalie.

As you can see Natalie is getting bigger by the second. It's really amazing to see the changes. She's getting a lot more hair, which appears to be a dark blond and on the curly side (big surprise there). She's a gem of a child. Very calm, a great communicator, never cries for more then 5 minutes at a time, and even that would be a long one. She's got great sleeping habits, sometime a little too good, but we sure don't mind. Still means we get 3 hrs at a time on a good night, but we can tolerate that.

We need to give a shoutout to George the Wondercat. Dispite expressing his clear displeasure with the arrival of the new Queen, he's been very good around Natalie. He's really more curious then anything, but we still keep them from getting too close. George would probably curl up next to her if he could. There...now he can't say he's being igonored.
