It’s supposed to be spring here but the weather feels more like fall. We had a few really nice, sunny days and then that was it. We have seen snow flurries in the last few days and more are expected this weekend. I cannot stand it. After a long Manitoba winter, we really start looking forward to spring and summer. When those seasons don’t arrive on time, it’s a tough pill to swallow.
I find that the weather affects my mood. After a few days of no sun or lots of rain. I start to feel grumbly. It is amazing what Mr. Golden Sun can do to lighten our mood, brighten our smile and put a spring in our step. Our first camping trip is scheduled for the May Long weekend and I really just want it to be warm. This was our camping experience May Long 2009. There were no buds forming on the trees. We were wearing our winter jackets and I packed hats and mittens too. It was COLD!
Quinn is moving like crazy now. She is walking all over and sometimes it looks like she is trying to run. The Big Girls love holding her hand and walking with her. She has wild hair (like I did as a baby) and it stands straight up on end. It’s hilarious and cute. A natural mohawk. She grunts and screams to communicate (which is as annoying as it was when her Big Sisters did it). It sounds like she tries to say “Piper” and “Done”. I don’t know if this is what she is really saying or not, but I can pretend 😉
My cousin had a baby boy and named him Ronin. Ronin was the name we had picked out for a baby boy so many years ago (we spelled it Ronan). It makes me a wee bit sad that we are done having babies but I am so looking forward to being able to do more and more things with the girls. It will be nice to not have to worry about fitting in a nap or packing bottles and formula. Those days are in our near future.
Soccer season is set to start in a few weeks so long as the fields are dry. I think it will be a cold spring on the fields and I am not really looking forward to that. Having to bundle up to stand out there and freeze our toes off. Not fun. At least the Big Girls won’t mind and Davilyn actually gets to play this year! We have been dragging her out to all these activities and now, finally, she gets to join in.
I have now lost 19 lbs since mid January. I am feeling great about that. Last night when I came home from work, Craig looked over at me from the stove to say hi and then had to look at me again. “Those pants are falling off of you.” It was true and they must now be retired to the “phat side” of my closet. The weight loss has been slow and steady for me. I am having some hormonal issues and getting some blood work done. I see my Endocrinologist in a few weeks and I am hoping to have some answers. I’m also excited for her to weigh me and see the progress that I have made since we met last. It’s been hard but rewarding. I am so thankful that I said, “I am worth it.”
