Sunday, April 3, 2011 lonely

So Stephen is in Toronto for the next three days doing some training for work, and I'm extremely jealous....but mostly I'm just lonely.  For a split second i thought FREEDOM!!  Three days to do whatever I want, when I want.   But then as I drove away after dropping him off at the airport I just felt lonely.   And now I'm just delaying going to bed because I hate sleeping alone.  I contemplated buying a ticket and just flying out there myself.  I'd LOVE to visit Toronto.  Unfortunately I'd have to rob a bank in order to fly there.  Seriously....$800 Westjet???  Isn't that a bit much?  Good grief.  So now I'm stuck in the frozen, but slowly thawing, Edmonton....alone.  Good thing Bails is here with me.  That's what we call Balian in case you were wondering. 

Stephen was not excited about this trip.  I don't know why.  He was a little nervous about flying, even though he's done it before.  It probably didn't help that I told him about a story I captioned the night before where part of the airplane roof blew off while 36,000 feet in the air.  No one died though, so it's all good.  He also was sad that I wouldn't be there with him.  We like each other, what can I say.  And me and Bails are both deathly ill, so he felt bad leaving us.  But I hope he tries to enjoy it....just a little bit. So I hope you're having a great time hun, livin' it up for both of us.  I'm there in spirit.  And remember to bring us home a souvenir!

Now an upday for our almost 4-month-old.  HE'S STILL SO CUTE!!!  I just can't stand how cute he is.  He melts my heart everytime he smiles.  Stephen and I just can't get over how adorable he is.  He can do no wrong in our eyes.  We got an official laugh out of him the other day.  It was hilarious.  I think it almost scared him a little bit.  haha  I wish I got it on camera.  He's starting to grab at his toys and play with them.  He's drooling like crazy!   He goes to bed around 8 and sleeps until about 4am, then feeds and back to bed until 9.  He's about 16 pounds.  He's a chunker.  He really is just such a happy baby.  He totally interacts with us and reacts to all our smiles and ridiculous baby talk.  I can't even imagine my life with Balian.  Yup, I said it.  I'm THAT cliche mom.  I don't even care, because it's true.  So here's some pictures of the cutest boy in the world. 

See...I told you he's the cutest boy in the world

I got a new program for editing.  I wish our eyes were really that color.

Cute matching cousins!  They love each other. 

He always gives daddy the biggest smiles.  I love this picture.  I love my boys


He kinda loves me.  Check out our matching squinty eyes.  We're definitely related.
