Just waiting

I'm realizing it's been a month since I wrote last... I've been waiting for something exciting to write about- a baby... but that is still about a month away. In the meantime, this is what we've been up to.

WW got a new bike for his birthday. It is so cute watching him ride, and he is getting pretty fast. He is still working on steering and pedaling at the same time, but it won't be long before he gets that all figured out too.

The weather has been amazing lately (except for the last few days) that we've spent alot of time outside. WW has been in the baby pool at my parents twice already and is much more willing to get wet than last year. He is loving the park, flying kites and planting/watering the garden.
BJ finished his shutdown at work, so we are glad to have him home in the evenings again. He works so hard for his little family, and is willing to do the overtime but we'd much rather have him at home.

BJ also tried a new pain relief technique called scraping. It's some ancient asian treatment where they help get stagnant blood moving by rubbing really hard with this little bone-like tool. When we got home and saw what his back and arm looked like, we couldn't believe someone would choose to do such a thing. He says it's pretty painful, but if it helps then it's worth it.

I've been working a little bit this month, but think I'm pretty much done at the end of this month. I'm still feeling really good, but it's difficult to bend over and I'm exhausted by the end of the day. I'm going to take some time next month for organizing/ de-cluttering my house and enjoying the last little bit of time I have one on one with WW.

We went earlier this week to visit with BJ's grandparents in Camrose. His grandma is sick with a dementia type disorder and has recently been moved into a care facility. It brings back memories of my own grandma who passed away with Alzheimers 5 years ago. It's hard to see them sick and really wish you could do more. BJ's grandpa is the most amazing man, and is so loving and kind to his wife, but I can't imagine how hard it is to see his wife this way. It was good to visit.

I'm going to try to find exciting things to write about for the next few weeks until the big D-Day. Maybe if we create exciting things to write about the time will go faster.
