Gil is 10 months!

Um, I’m an abysmally pathetic mommy blogger. I’m not sure when last I updated about my baby boy, but he was 10 months old just a few days ago, so here we go!

He crawls!

He stands!

He now cruises, but it’s hard to get an action shot of that :)

In all seriousness, Gil has taken off in his physical abilities. Because he learned to sit *after* he learned to crawl, we’ve not enjoyed any luxurious ‘sit in one place while playing with a new toy’ phase – this little boy is all GO all the time. Read the rest of this entry »

Two month appointment

Well, the appointment went well. And, thank goodness, Gwen is NOT teething, as we thought she might be! There was a funky white nodule on her gum and we couldn’t figure out what it would be other than a tooth – which we thought was the reason she’s been so unhappy lately. Apparently, though, it’s a cyst. The doctor didn’t seem too surprised, so I guess they’re fairly common. Weird. Read the rest of this entry »

So, I finished my last day of clinical today.

Which means I’m officially done my University Degree.

My wonderful preceptor (Hi Heather!) gave me a classical music CD to play for June Bug, a hippie (lol – it’s so me) bracelet that she made (she makes micro-macramé jewelery – it’s really pretty!!), and a book I’ve been wanting forever (how’d she know??) – The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. I can’t wait to relax and read it!

The end to my University career feels so anti-climactic. Maybe it’s because I have to go to bed early so I can get up at 5:30 so I can walk to work for a 6:30 – 14:30 shift … maybe it’s because it doesn’t quite feel real yet. Either way, it’s done, and that’s that!

Work Update

Well, I made an appointment to see my midwife this morning to discuss work accommodation and what she thinks I should/should not be doing.

She has written me a note that I am to go on ‘light duties’ (meaning no lifting over 10 lbs) as of April 15 – I’ll be 30 weeks along. That means that if my employer is not able to give me ‘light duties’ accommodation, April 15 will be my last day of work, and if they are able to accommodate me (my manager said yesterday that they *should* have two weeks of 22.5 hours of paperwork), I will be going off at the end of April. It’s earlier than planned, but really, with my manual labour job, it would be difficult for me to work until we had planned. The plan (to do data entry for April and May) was lovely, but this one will work too. And this way I get to focus on studying for my RNs, exercising, and getting ready for June Bug’s arrival!
