Update on Baby Bird and The Family
We have had a few people ask how everything is going with us and Baby Bird and if there was anything new to report. We realized that we haven't done an update in a little while, so we thought we would let you know what has been going on with us lately.
We haven't been posting as much these last few weeks. They have also not been as big or deep of topics because there has been a ton of life stuff going on. We went on our anniversary trip to Canmore for 9 days (and yes don't worry our Canmore Travel Guide is still coming). We tried to relax as much as possible on that trip. We just enjoyed being with each other and unplugging as much as possible. It was a great trip!
The day we arrived home from our vacation, one of Papa Bird's longtime childhood friends passed away due to his battle with cancer. It was a tragic end to a beautiful life and dealing with this has been difficult for Papa Bird to say the least. Grief is a tricky thing and can throw you for what feels like some uncontrollable loops. One second you're feeling great and then it just hits you out of nowhere and knocks you down. Our hearts go out to his wife, kids, and family. It sure makes you really appreciate the people you love even more because you just never know what life is going to throw your way.
Aside from that, Baby Bird just turned 6 months old (WOW time is flying by!) and got the "A OK" from the doctor at her 6 month check up. Everything looks great and she is as healthy as can be right now. Baby Bird is running like a well oiled machine. She naps and sleeps at pretty much the exact same time every day without us forcing it. She is eating a lot, putting on lots of weight, and growing like crazy. In this month she has put on 4.5 lbs which puts her right back in the right percentile for her age and size (such a relief!) We know this might not be the case forever and a wrench might get thrown into the mix at any given point but right now we are just enjoying the ride while everything is smooth sailing. Baby Bird's affection for the dogs is growing and she gets so excited to see them and when they give her kisses she smiles. It's pretty awesome to see those relationships grow. Check out some awesome photos from the past couple weeks below.
And then to end off this update post, Mama Bird will be going back to work full time. She is excited and nervous and sad all at the same time. But this will be great for her and be sure to stay posted for her update on how the transition goes.
Hope you enjoyed this little update and stay posted for more regular posts coming up as we get our life back on track. Hope you all have a great day! Hug your loved ones and let them know how much you love them! Really appreciate the time you get with them!
