Though I was born and raised in Georgetown I never really imagined living my first two years of marriage here and having my own first child here. For so many years I knew I would be living oversees; likely in some country in Africa. But this is where God has us and it’s been a great season. I’ve realized how much I really like this town. We live a km away from my parents, which has been great. Close enough to walk over for visits, but still have our own space.
We also live a short walk from downtown old Georgetown, and there, is our favourite coffee shop. Early on in our marriage we discovered this cute coffee shop walking distance away. It’s really nothing special but it’s a place we can walk to, on a casual impromptu date night- a walk and a coffee.
I also love how close everything is in Georgetown. I’m regularly reminded of this. When I run out to pick up groceries, or go to the dentist, or to a hair appointment, it’s all within a few minutes. The novelties of a “small town” (even though Georgetown really is not that small). I sometimes say Georgetown has made me a suburbia snob. Because I can have the small town feel but also can access all the stores and entertainment that I want to with Mississauga and Toronto less than an hour away.
So, we’re thankful for these two years in Georgetown. Who knows where the next steps will lead us and whether we will be back here again. But it’s been a good season!
Today was Isaiah’s first time in the swing at the park. It was no surprise that he loved it, considering that he’s been fond of his parents swinging him in the car seat since week 1. And he’s taken many naps in his swing at home. But it was still so fun to put him in the swing and watch him light up with the movement. He was kind of whiny that I had put him down but when I started the movement he smiled instantly and started making all sorts of excited sounds. It’s going to be a great summer!!
On April 3, 2014 Isaiah turned four months old. Wow the time has gone so quickly. This month was full of many new things. A trip to Florida which included meeting Grandad for the first time, meeting lots of our friends, and spending days on the beach in the warm sun. This is also the month that Isaiah learned to roll over from his tummy to his back. Well he did it a couple times just before he turned three months old but he really learned how to do it often, when he was three months old.
I took a bunch of photos for his four months birthday. Such a little sweetheart.
Watching two of your favourite people falling in love with each other is pretty much amazing. When Jon gets home from work, he gives me a kiss and then runs off to say hello to Isaiah as well. It makes my heart happy to imagine them in 2 years, 4 years, 10 years; father and son doing life together. Such joy!
Daddy enjoyed the beach SO much more when he could introduce it to Isaiah.
Mommy and Daddy have many nicknames for Isaiah. Daddy started calling him “buddy boy” and “sweet boy” as soon as he was born. Mommy took a bit longer to find her nicknames. But now she has many! “Pumpkin”, “Mr. Magoo”, “Squirmy McSquirmson”, and “munchkin”. All our unique ways to say “we love you Isaiah!”
Finally I’ve joined the world of blogging. I’m excited to share snipets of our journey- the moments that really do feel like we’re on cloud nine and the moments that are not always so easy and wonderful. Join us through our adventures!
