A long weekend at a cabin

We packed our bags for 4 days at a beautiful seaside cabin and some three generation family time.

We hung out in the jaccuzzi every night

Lots of playtime with Jack

Minea and uncle Marcus

Babies in pajamas are my favourite

Minea with her great grandma 

The beautiful harbour town Simrishamn

After talking non-stop through customs in Terrace, Minea passed out and slept almost the whole way to Vancouver

We had to spend the night as we weren't flying out until the next day. Vanessa and Mark brought us yummy Thai food and made us happy. Minea is not a fan of beards close to bedtime, she's not a big fan of anything close to bedtime usually.

Kingsize - Minisize

The international terminal of the Vancouver airport is the best!

She's got her passport and is ready to check in!

Watching a movie on the plane. She did so good (except for a couple of screaming fits) and we were lucky enough to get a seat for her in between us which we didn't expect (or pay for). We were very impressed with Lufthansa and how helpful and baby friendly they were.

3 months!

3 months already! Little sweet Minea, you fill my heart until it almost bursts when I’m around you. I start thinking of you in the grocery store or at work and my eyes well up with tears. You've discovered your hands this month and when you’re not batting toys around or holding on to your wubba you seem to have them both in your mouth.

We took you trick or treating with your cousins on Halloween and you stayed awake the whole time, quiet and observing the voices and lights and fireworks. You even scored us some candy!

Thank you for making us laugh out loud every day, for being the anchor that keeps us still and grounded. Thank you for being such a great converser and excellent flirty smiler, our tiny bubble blower.

I can’t wait for our big trip with you next week (Venessa says if you have a screaming fit on the plane we have to buy everyone a round so please refrain) We are going to have so much fun and I cant wait to spend the next 8 months being a stay at home mom with you. You are my greatest adventure!

Those eyes though!

Morning finds, eggs and pine mushrooms.

We showed Venessa's parents the canyon

Always sleeps with her hands by her ears

Hanging out with me at work one morning, letting Venessa sleep in =)
