Sorry. Life has a way of getting in the way and despite my best intentions, this blog just took a seat on the back burner. We’ve all been passing around a bug of some sort but I think/hope we are all past the worst of it. We’ve had some good news surrounding FMLA and CFRA eligibility so that means that Brooke will be able to take a lot longer off of work when the new baby is here. Nolan has been amazing. he’s becoming a very sweet little boy; hugging and kissing everyone, sharing toys, etc. The new nanny starts the day before Thanksgiving (tomorrow!) and we’re so excited.
I’m still so elated that we have family and friends close by. Seems like everyone is going out of their way to help with Nolan while we sort out full time care. The new nanny is expected to start the week of Thanksgiving, though with the short week, it may just make sense to have her begin the week after. Last week was full of adventure for Nolan.
Halloween was wonderful. We had a number of good friends come by as our house tends to have the most trick or treaters. We handed out giant candy bars and all of the kids got to dress up (as did some adults). Nolan had three costumes for the night as we couldn’t county on any one being worn for more than 3 minutes at a time.
The day after Halloween, we met up with our friends once again at the SAP Center to watch San Jose’s AHL hockey team (Barracuda) battle it out for a win again the Ontario Reign.
We also all got haircuts! This was Nolans first. It was a a little sad to lose the curls, but we’re confident they’ll be back.
