Mother May I ?

After a busy afternoon/evening in the city it is nice to be home. My doctor is happy with my post delivery recovery and told us to come to her "next time." Just wait at least a year of course lol. It does seem odd to no longer have to make trips to the city to see a doctor.
I did get Emanuel’s new scrapbook and now am at a loss as to how to go about starting the book. I am going to search around online and see if I can see some examples of fancier pages since I did the twins’ books in binders on printer paper sized paper. I think I need to sit down with Ken and get him to help me figure out what are the important moments to include in the book… I tend to want to put EVERYTHING in, that is why I do not chose the best of the pictures to put in the album. I am too much of a softy. So tonight I am going to crack open the plastic on that scrapbook and take a peek – it even came with papers and bits and bobs. I know that I am going to have to print out the best of my pregnancy pictures too to put in there for him. So if anyone has any advice I am all ears .
We managed to get more onesies and a couple pj like outfits from Toys’R’Us for Emanuel, I absolutely love the brand Gagou Tagou (B). The necks are nice and wide and the patterns adorable but simple. It was just too bad there was not any sleepers in the right size for him, maybe next time. I have looked on eBay but since it seems to be a Canandian product it is really not available there. It still amazes me that he is outgrowing stuff so quickly and already so alert – the twins were 10 weeks premature and at 2 months old had only been home a week or two and were still working to meet their due date. It is really a new and novel experience.
Topping off yesterday was getting to go to Swiss Chalet with Karyn for dinner and then a visit with our god-daughter Isabella and her parents (Alan and Xinmy) at their house. The twins behaved amazingly well at the restaurant though Gavin fell apart a little at the Den Otters’ house since he had skipped his nap in the way to the city in the van. I cannot get over how big Isabella is, she is 9 1/2 months but so tall and such a beautiful smile – just like an angel .
All in all a good trip and today has been rather restful… thus far. As it is time for some cuddles with Emanuel I will have to sign off. Take care everyone, spring is coming…
