Family of Four
Home from the hospital
We did a lot of snuggling at the beginning. I really cherished the time when I could hold a sleeping baby.
We went for walks up the street. October was unseasonably warm.
We hosted a birthday party for E. Q slept in his bouncy chair throughout the whole party.
We tried to recreate some photos that we had done with E

We spent a week in Jamaica.
Spending extra time with E was also a nice side effect of taking a maternity leave with a second child. I would pick him up early from school on Mondays and Wednesdays. He kept going to the YMCA after school care for the other days (since giving up our spot would mean we wouldn't get in of September).
For March Break, E spent the week at home with us. We went to the AGO and other fun things.
Q and I did swimming lessons in the morning.
We met various people for lunch
We walked E home from school when the weather was fine (and even when it wasn't. We walked in the cold, and the rain).
We went to the baby and mama movies at Humber Cinema.
We spent the first week of summer home with E.
We cheered a successful road trip down east.
We spent a lot of time at the library.
