Hello there. If you wanted to know some recent happenings with me and mine, read on, read on.
Hal is as cute as ever, actually probably cuter than ever, see?
He has only slept for 6 hour chunks the last two nights instead of his usual 8. But I still count myself lucky to be getting stretches that long. He is also finally starting to gain a little more weight, thanks to the "no happiness diet" aka dairy free eating I have been doing for the last couple of weeks. Luckily he hadn't been fussy at all even with the milk allergy, but that also made it harder to detect. But his poop is no longer bright green, yay! (TMI? Too bad). It hasn't been too terrible so far, but I know this longing for ice-cream will just continue to grow. Good thing he's worth it.
We are packing up two weeks from today and leaving Utah and family all behind oneither the 29th or 30th. 29th only if we can convince the couple we are traveling with to break the sabbath and take off so our driving days are shorter and so we can visit Jeff's brother in Iowa. I've been doing pretty well at ignoring it all summer and just thinking of it as this nebulous "someday" that wodn't really ever happen. It's starting to get a little more real and a lot more scary. But we are excited a bit too. Hal and I might get a little lonely, but I'm just glad I'm not going to be the one starting a crazy hard PhD program. I do have sympathetic butterflies in the tummy for Jeff, though. New York, here we come.
We probably should try to be really productive the next two weeks, but we will probably play with our Utah family and friends as much as possible instead. I'm cool with that. Here's to technology and staying in touch, and, dare I say it, new friends? Well, here's to new adventures, at least.
