Peace. Well, almost.

Quiet. Serene. Peaceful. These are the words that describe my littlest. But, only when he's asleep.
This photo was taken during naptime on Monday morning. So beautiful, and so calm.

Less than three hours after this photo was taken, a very awake little T, in a botched attempt to rodeo the dog, fell head-first into the couch, splitting his forehead. After a 4-hour wait in the ER at the children's hospital, he is patched up, and unfazed. Actually, he was back to his normal, giggling, daredevil self minutes after it happened, while a very frantic mama raced around trying to hold a wet cloth over his gaping wound. Luckily his papa, as it happens, turned out to be very skilled with butterfly bandages, and our wee-est didn't need stitches, just some good old fashioned... glue. And a giant bandage that has to stay on until tomorrow, and then we can take it off and reveal his scar. The first of many, I'm sure. What a character.

Settling in

We made our way back home a couple of weeks ago, and have been settling back into a rhythm. We also came back to the news that the new year will present us with yet another move (that's 4 moves in 5 years!). We'll take it in stride, and try to remain calm!

A few moments from the first day of our holiday journey.

That will have to do for now... off for tea and a good game of Go Fish with one of my loves.
