The Great Update Post

I'm sorry. I'm really, really sorry. So much has happened in the last month, I've hardly had a chance to catch my breath, let alone find a half hour to sit down and tell you guys about it.

So I'll try to catch everything up in bullet points:

1. This is our very last night in our townhouse in Airdrie. Tomorrow we will be residents of Irricana. We had to make a whole bunch of repairs to the house, which are now finished. Several rooms in the house now have a fresh coat of paint, including the baby's room. Which brings me to #2…

2. We had to open the envelope so we knew what color to paint the baby's room. And it's…A BOY! We have no idea what we are going to name this poor kid, because, well, we both were pretty sure it was a girl. Sorry kid, if you're reading this several years from now. It's not that we didn't want you to be a boy, it's just that since girls tend to run in my family, and we already had a girl, we just sort of assumed that you were going to be a girl too. Anyway, until we decide on an ACTUAL name for this kid, we've been calling him "Hamish" because Nathan suggested it as a joke, and I immediately said VETO!, and now it's sort of become a family joke. We'll come up with something a little more appropriate, I promise.

3. We have decided to get cell phones with internet capability, rather than have a land line and internet connection - so until I figure out how you post to Blogger using an iPhone, you might not hear from me for awhile.

Well, off to spend my last night here. I'm a little bit teary-eyed, to be honest. This was our very first house. This is where we brought home our first baby. This is where we found out about baby #2. There are a lot of memories tied up in this house. But of course, I know that we'll make a ton more in the new house. Just can't quite get rid of the little lump in my throat.

WOW! Congrats on the boy - they are so much fun, but remember they are much different from girls! Good luck in the new home!

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Hooray for the boy, and hooray for you living in Irricana!

I'm blinking back tears in my eyes now, as I read this. Life is filled with change, and this move is a good change...but your first home will always be special.

We're so happy about the upcoming changes in your lives. A new home, and a new little life. GBYRG!

PS Hamish kinda grows on ya! (tee hee)

Dear Denice,

I do believe it's time for another great update post.

Your faithful reader,
