Snotty T.O.

Toronto is full of snotty be specific, Nico. Her nose was a constant flow of green boogers. Lucky for us, we are all snotty now too! Poor little Hayden is a bit congested but I think Scott and I got the worst of it. Oh well. It was still a lot of fun to visit with everyone. Hayden even hit the big city and did a bit of shopping. He stayed up late and played video games with Shawn and Scott. He had quality time with Sara and met Amy-Jo and Matt. Oh yeah, he even saw his first celebrity. While eating brunch, Hayden sat next to the Canadian Tire guy, you know, the one with all the cool tools. He was a little starstruck and could barely contain his excitement. All in all, he had a great time. He was also a great traveller in the car. He slept for almost the entire trip back except for a little snack half way home.

We're home now and can't wait for the next 5 weeks. Scott is taking his 5 weeks of paternity leave and will be home to play. We're looking forward to having a lot of fun and getting some projects done around the house.

Tomorrow our big project involves Hayden's kidneys. Before he was born, an ultrasound showed that they were slightly dilated. It should be nothing to worry about but we are going to do a procedure tomorrow to see if the dilation is due to something called reflux. You can read more about it here. If it isn't reflux, it's likely nothing major and he should outgrow it.

So, look forward to some posts from Hayden's Dad now that he's off and around during the day to play. I'm looking forward to using the opportunity to get some projects done including that quilt from way back when.
