Rachel is doing very well. Dave and I moved into the Flames House with her yesterday....and my parents took the other two to Banff!! (we'll see them again tomorrow morning) We were wondering how Rachel would do here because she has been making strange alot more lately. (we still think of her as a baby because she is so little but 13 month olds make strange, right?) But when we got back from our dinner and movie (just the two of us!!!) she was hamming it up with the nurses, definetly ok with being here. Dave and I are having a wonderful time relaxing here too. Being without the kids was very disorienting at first, kind of stressful to be honest, and it is taking me a bit of time to get used to this but now I am looking forward to the day ahead! We just slept in till 8:30 and now we're going for a walk on this beautifully sunny day. I have so missed being outdoors! There's so much more I would like to write, about my reading lately in particular. Maybe I will get a chance later....but right now, I'm going on a walk with my husband!! Wooo hooo!!
ps - for Angela:), and anyone else who wants to know - 'making strange' is not wanting to be held by strangers, or anyone other than his/her parents. (used to talk about babies) Is there anyone else who didn't know that expression? Do you have another way to say this? Linguistics was my minor and it's interesting to me to hear about these things!:)
