Just a little of that human touch

Holy cow, I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here. I think this is the longest I've ever gone without doing a blog post. I bet you all missed me desperately. I bet you all were weeping into your pillows at night because there were no new posts from me. I bet the long silence caused you all to wail and rend your garments.

Yeah, whatever.

Anyhow. Ellie continues to be an angel baby. By baby standards, she's been sleeping through the night (at least 5 hours at a stretch) for about three weeks now, and she's even done it by grown-up standards a couple of times. Last night she slept from 9:45 to 8:00 and only woke up once to eat, around 4:00. So I am feeling MUCH more human these days. She gives me an enormous happy smile when I get her up in the mornings, which is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. She has beautiful dark-blue eyes, and most of the time they are wide open, staring at anything and everything, trying to take it all in. It's so much fun watching her examine the world. Even when she's napping, she has a slight frown on her face, like she's concentrating very hard on processing everything she learned today. She's just so adorable and precious I can hardly stand it.

And of course I have pictures!

What do you want NOW?


Laundry day!

So yeah, life here at the Canuck house is pretty damned good these days.

Hahaha!!!I love that first picture and that little maple leaf onsie is adorable.

Mine just started doing five or six hours at a night. A WORLD of difference for my sanity.
