There She Grows {eleven months}

Seriously? 11 months already? This year has flown by at lightning speed. We had a busy month with our first family vacation and a week of the flu. Now my heels are fully dug in in attempt to slow these final weeks of pure me and Emily time.

There She Grows {four months}

Another busy month around here. This time I actually had the video and post ready on the 7th but we went out of town before I could finish posting. Gah! Emily is growing and developing at warp speed, it is amazing to watch. 🙂

Welcome Tomas!

The latest addition to the Coombcello family raced into the world on holiday Monday! He kindly waited until after our Canada Day celebration and fireworks display and even let his mom and dad have a full nights sleep before his arrival!
Tomas Riley Coombs Scarcello was born on Monday, July 2 at 11:18 am. He weighs 8.11 pounds and is 21 inches long. He and Emily are almost exactly 3 months apart. Right now this seems like years but when they start running around together it will be perfection!!
Welcome Tomas, we are so excited to finally meet you!

One of Those Moments

This week we took our first family road trip and drove to Kenora together. The drive out was a small disaster and took us about double what it should have because we didn’t drive on Emily’s schedule. Big mistake! Once we got there, everything was good. Emily liked the fresh lake air and all the attention from her cousins!
I had one of those warm and fuzzy moments when we took Emily to the beach for her first dip in the lake. We probably looked a little ridiculous as I had Emily in her Baby Bjorn, in our bathing suits with a rain umbrella protecting us from the sun. No longer is it a “quick swim” and a run down to the beach!! I dangled her feet in the water and she didn’t get mad so we took her a little deeper. Still happy! Finally I took her out of the Bjorn and dipped her right in to her armpits. Happy! Maybe because it was a billion degrees out and she was as sweltering hot as the rest of us?
Once the swim was done, the sun was lower in the sky and it wasn’t quite so hot. I lay her down on the towel to get dressed but just let her “air dry” (sans diaper) for a bit. She seemed happy so I let her play about. The warm and fuzzy part was when Jeff laid down beside her and she rolled around in delight. I love a few things about all this. Love that we are a little family and simple things like laying in the shade at the beach are memories. Love that Jeff is so in love with Emily and wants to be a part of all the stages of her life. Love those moments when Jeff and Emily lock eyes and smile at each other. Warm and fuzzy.
