happy birthday, husband

Tomorrow is Geoffrey’s birthday.

What a year we had. I struggled for most of it with health anxiety, and you remained my rock. You never once showed me that you were worried alongside me, and you seemed to understand when my mood would swing because of it.

When work slowed down and you were laid off as a result, you transferred to a different city that day and picked up right where you left off. You continue to work day and night for us, and *rarely* complain. ;-)))

You completed every project I asked for, and indulged me when I brought home 5 new cats and kittens.

Here you are with your little girl who has you wrapped around her little finger. We all love you so much!!

Happy birthday, Geo!

life with a toddler: waiting for dada

One of our favourite things to do at the end of each weekday is wait for Geoffrey in the window. I place Remy on the couch and sit on the trunk just opposite the couch. She crawls and walks back and forth, slapping the cushions, talking to people who walk by, and smiling at all of the vehicles. She always turns to look at me to make sure that I’m watching her, then resumes her window-watching.

When Geoffrey pulls up, I always say, “dada’s home!” She immediately starts smiling, and watches him intently as he parks, gets out of his vehicle, and walks up to the window. She says, “yeah,” “dada,” and “heyyyyy” over and over again. Then they play through the glass for a few minutes, usually peek-a-boo. It melts my heart.

I always thought that I would be more strict and not let her play and jump on the couch like this, but it’s just once a day and for a good reason. I love seeing her so happy, and seeing my husband’s face when he finally gets to see her at the end of a long day.

This is our life with a toddler. My heart is so full.
