OK, for real

Monday, November 12, 2012

aaaand I'm here. the last couple of weeks have been ca-razy. marks family came to visit - it was so nice but we were running all over switzerland and beyond and then i was getting laaaid-up sick for like 4 days with strep throat (timing coincided nicely to have round the clock baby care for the duration though!).  Wesley is like, over a month old now which I'm still in denial I even HAVE a child so pretty much at his highschool graduation i'm going to be like, "you're mine?? i have to pay for your college????? WHERE DID YOU COME FROM? what!!!"  He's sleeping predictably at night....he has taken his first vacation to another area of switzerland, his first boat ride across lake luzern, he's been to Lichtenstein and France and Germany now. pretty much everything he does is a "first" though so writing like this could get tiring....his favorite thing ever is to lay on his changing table, so like a good mom I leave him there for a bit so i can like...make coffee and blog. jk. i don't blog while he is there, he's next to me right now fighting a nap (his other fave thing to do!).

anyway, happy monday you guys. my sister in law, liz, took this gorgeous picture of snowy luzern a couple weeks ago.

lets get back to business after this, k? k!

how are you?

What a stunning pic.
I feel so much better knowing that someone else feels the way i do. I am certain that when we decide to have a baba, I am also going to "WHAT??" for the first few years

Jenna said...

Looks lovely, but cold! Glad you are feeling better :)

It's a gorgeous photo!
I love hearing those snippits of your life right now, and I'm very impressed with how much you've been able to get out and do - it's inspiring, and very encouraging.

(Me, on the other hand, I'm still as pregnant as ever, 4 days passed my due date and going slightly crazy! But still hanging in there... like I have any other options!)

you are/were so busy! i can't believe he's a month old! :)

rooth said...

Your bebe is so well traveled! I'm sure he's a pro now and never cries on planes :)

Christine loves to Travel said...

The adventures with a newborn! Everything is a first ;) I watched my sisters go through this stage. Enjoy it before Wesley starts crawling everywhere.

Glad you're better.

Gloria said...

That photo is magical! And I can't believe Wesley is over a month old already - time is flying!

Kate said...

Beautiful photo! I love hearing about the more personal side of your life.

I remember the newborn days all too well - it was all I could do to get myself and Grace out the door during the first month; I have no idea how you've managed to travel so well already!

Kelle Dame said...

OMG!! My daughter is four and I still don't believe she is mine! WHO gave ME a child??? It's crazy! Looks absolutely beautiful and glad you are feeling better!

Yay, it is great to have you back dear! I can only imagine the craziness now. Enjoy those precious times when he is napping or chilling out on the changing table!

That is a gorgeous photo - and I hope you are feeling better soon. Congrats again, I'm sure the idea that you have a BABY will feel more real soon enough.

Sounds like you are doing amazingly well with Wesley... so happy for you. Love from a sunnier climate, so jealous of the snow xx

Ashley said...

pretty much everything he does is a "first" though so writing like this could get tiring...

BEST LINE EVER. hahaha.

This kid is already a world traveler!!!

Christianna said...

Sounds like you've had some busy times there! Sorry you got sick, that totally sucks.

Ok, Wesley sounds like a total charmer and like he totally loves first, so good for him!

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

aww...bummer you got ill!
haha...I feel like I'm going to be like you when I have a child. How surreal!

Molly said...

It sounds like you're adjusting well! And the important thing is you haven't lost your sense of humor. :)

Stephanie @ henry happened said...

Strep throat - yuck! Night help with baby - awesome! Doesn't the first month fly by? My little guy is 5 months and I can't believe it!

jen said...

beautiful picture indeed! and congrats again on baby :D

E said...

Welcome back! Sounds like you have a lot of help, which I imagine is pretty nice. :)

Amanda said...

So glad to hear from you! Gorgeous photo and wonderful that you had family around for so long. Enjoy your little man while he's still little!

6 weeks to go for me before my child arrives!! wha?? I think that's pretty cray-cray!

Mat said...

a very well traveled baby already, true it would get tiring writing ever time he does a "first" but getting into another country is big.

glad to hear it's going well, it must be a shock to think he's yours, i can only imagine

Laura Bear said...

Glad you are feeling better. What a lucky little baby to have you as mommy!

Annie said...

Ummm how did i miss that you are now a mom?!?! Oh my god, Congrats!!!!! I'm sorry I'm not in the blog world like I used to be.. gosh, I have to be better at keeping up :) This picture is GORGEOUS! I hope I get to visit there one day soon. xo

Diana said...

I'm jealous of Wesley's life. He sounds like a pretty chill baby, just going with the flow and jet setting all over the place and probably not even making a fuss. Looking forward to his guest posts.

Charlotte said...

So excited! I haven't visited since you had your baby, and I'm happy to hear everything is going (fairly well). That baby is living the life - a traveler as soon as he's out of the womb! That snowy picture is breath-taking.

this free bird said...

Well if it helps any I can't believe you have a baby either. Whenever I read Wesley I still think you're talking about my brother. HAHAHA!!

Diana said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better, that cold sounds like it was nasty. Nice that you had help with the baby...by the way I LOVE his name!! Wesley!! Beautiful photo!

Anastasia Egorova said...

I'm mother of three and still can't believe they are mine :D
Comgratulations on your maternity! :)

Erica said...

She's baaaaaack!! Sounds like you've had a TON going on. Glad you're able to get 'back to business' at least for a little bit. ;)

brittany said...

yes yes yes, the firsts, the changing table love, the nap fighting! us too!

Anouka said...

I'd love to visit Luzern one day. This photo is very inspiring!

Colleen Brynn said...

It's stunning. I've never been to Switzerland (but believe me, it's on my list!)... I'm living in a city right now with no snow, and this is really making me miss home (the Canadian prairies) which has fantastically cold and winter-wonderland type winters.
