Unfortunately with our situation as it is I am alone ALOT! I rarely see my husband and it is sometimes tricky to see friends. This is the first time that this kind of thing has happened to me before. Mostly it sucks, but I can tell you something that I think is pretty cool.
Evan is my BEST friend. Seriously he is my little Buddy, and now that he is more expressive and vocal I just have a great time with him. Don't get me wrong, I adore newborns and I have been in nothing less than heaven since we got Evan, but there is something to his being older now. He wants to be with me, and hugs me all the time (not just laying his head on my shoulder, but grabbing onto me), he initiates our kisses, and he gets excited when I talk and play with him. The list goes on and on. Evan truly is my best friend.
Everyone tells you that there is no love stronger than the love you have for your child. I felt it the day he was placed in my arms, but I had no idea that it could grow even more. If it continues like this ... WOW!
Calgary is in a crisis. We have been looking for a family doctor the whole time that we have lived here, and been unsuccessful as of yet. As an adult I don't mind going into a walk in clinic, but I have been stressed and worried about Evan not having a doctor. Great news to report: Evan now has a doctor thanks to his Granny Lanny, who pulled in some favors. I am so relieved!!!!!
