January Fun

After a busy week working through Christmas, I had the joy of being home for a week for New Years. Blake, Henry and I stayed put for most of the week to relax at home. It was nice just to be able to hang out with Henry and do day-to-day things with him.

Minus 30 temperatures aren’t slowing us down!

Henry’s favourite new place to play – in the shower!

Henry on my back…

… baby on board on the front!

Henry has taken on a new interest in ‘helping’ me with household chores

He loves to mop…

…and sweep!

He is also obsessed with the laundry machine and dryer.
He spends quite a lot of time pressing the buttons and opening and closing the door!

What a goofball

For New Years, we flew to Toronto for the weekend to celebrate our dear friends’ Emily & Nick’s wedding. Henry stayed with Mom and Dad at Mom’s condo in Toronto, which gave Blake and I a bit of a break. We even went out for dinner, all alone! The wedding itself was lots of fun. Blake and I haven’t been out in quite awhile, so Blake took full advantage and suffered quite a bit the next day πŸ™‚ I on the other hand, had been drinking water all night, so I felt great the day after when we headed over to Dundas to visit my Nana.

It was a quick visit down South, then it was back to work for me!

Here are a few pictures from our snowy January adventures.

With the beautiful bride!
With Emily & Nick!

Too bad we didn’t get a ‘before’ shot while we were still looking put together!
This is at 2am and Blake has had just a bit to drink πŸ™‚

Blake and I flew to Thunder Bay and before hitting the road, we stopped at our favourite diner for lunch.
Henry kept himself busy by organizing the packages of jam and PB πŸ™‚

Woohoo! At Home Depot!

Back at home, we celebrated Blake’s birthday

Henry got his first haircut!

Henry skiing!

Going for a walk in the sled, ski boots at all

What a rascal!

Uncle John goes WAY faster than Mom!

At work, on the Labour and Delivery floor. One of the perks is snuggling newborns while doing paperwork πŸ™‚

This was after being on-call for 72hours for deliveries. I was pretty tired out and Henry ‘hid’ my pager in his Mega Block cart so that I wouldn’t have to answer any more pages πŸ™‚
