Yo ho and hello! It's been two months since my last post, and for that I am sorry. Procrastination has been my achilles heel lately. Anyhoo, I figured it's better late than never so here goes!
Tate and I have found our rhythm, and the days go by pretty smoothly now, with the occasional freak-out on his part (and sometimes on my part too). He sleeps through the night now, generally until 7 or 8am, and goes to bed at about 9pm. We have to wake him up to eat around 11 every night or he will wake us up at 3am with hungry cries, and neither of us can get jiggy with that, so we make sure to feed him before we go to bed.
Tate loves being read to, and I really enjoy it too. It's so much fun to buy and read him all the books I used to love as a child, like Strega Nona, Corduroy and Grover's Bad, Awful Day. Sometimes he falls asleep on my lap as I read to him, and I do my best to relish those moments, because they really are so sweet.
For February, we're planning on hanging out in Thunder Bay and using our free time to chill (since going away during Jim's time off doesn't really allow for much relaxation). There are lots of trails in the woods right outside our door that we haven't been taking advantage of enough, and we plan to do so this month! Jim brought his snowshoes back from Nova Scotia, and I have mine here as well, so we're going to bundle Tate up, put him in his little sled and head out for some day hikes, in preparation for some overnight hikes once the weather gets a little milder. I've set a personal goal of finding some new vegan recipes for us, and I'm determined to perfect my granola bar recipe (which has been harder than you might imagine!)
Hopefully I won't be such a blog sloth in the months to come!
Have a happy February everyone, make sure you find yourself a Valentine. This year, I've got two!!!
