Just dropping in....

Once again the days and weeks have flown past and I have failed to keep my resolve to blog more regularly.

I have been busily making ready for the silly season, crafting, baking, wrapping, socialising and enjoying what remains of my time at home. I am now officially finished my maternity leave, and on rec leave until January 12th. I am sad, but trying not to dwell on it too much.

Tomorrow we head off down the highway to my parents' home, where we will celebrate Christmas. PJ is beside himself with excitement, both at the prospect of a visit from the man in the red suit, and a whole week of playtime with his Grandpa.

The Princess, well she's not so sure what all the fuss is about, and she's not too keen on that beard either.

The good news is that she has been putting on weight, 350g in 3-and-a-half weeks, and is no longer falling off the bottom of the charts. She's started "solids" and is vacuuming up all manner of mushy things. Especially yoghurt!


No, I do not feed her through the nose. It just looks that way.

But I really just wanted to drop by and wish everyone, near and far, a very Happy Christmas if you celebrate, and warmest Season's Greetings if you do something different. Travel safely (if you are travelling) and enjoy the time with your loved ones. You're in my thoughts and my heart.

Merry Christmas, George, to you and your family, and safe travels, too. I've been waiting to hear how the princess is doing--glad to hear she's gaining a bit and I hope all is well.

Mmmm, tasty! Eat up, Princess!

We had a winter solstice full of snow and are hoping the roads will be passable for Christmas and Christmas Eve.

Looks like she'd eat the camera too, given half a chance! Safe journeys and all the best of the season to you and your family.

Oh, she's adorable! (They both are!) Glad to hear she's doing well in daycare, and that you are handling the adjustment well, too! ;) (I got such a flashback reading about your day today - I TOTALLY remember that feeling, of not being able to settle in because it's all so strange and you think you're going to get called. You only get called, btw, when you are NOT able and/or ready for it... Just so you know. I'm helpful that way.
