Christmas is over and we are almost to the New Year! Wellington becomes a quiet little city this time of year. Many of the residents are away visiting family or taking holidays elsewhere in the country and the world. The streets are quiet.
Yesterday was a beautiful day and we took Samson to Lyall Bay where he got to meet many many other pups! He was particularly fond of a pug mix that he spent some time hanging out with. I feel like all of the people left in Wellington must have gone to the beach, it was surprisingly busy.
Gifts? Celeste bought me a very nice robe. I think she's telling me she's tired of me walking around the house in the nude, :-P especially since her parents are going to be arriving in less than a month. I love the robe though, super soft and comfy. And yes, I did get her a gift too, I was just trying to keep her guessing by my last posting. She does not enjoy the wind around here so I got her a nice, pretty jacket that will block out the wind. That's really about it. Very mellow Christmas, it is a very low key holiday here which suits me fine, Celeste is not quite so comfortable with that though. She is used to the same big commercialised fest that we have in the US.
We finally bought the kiddo a cot/crib yesterday. We put it together in the lounge and then were taking it to the nursery when we realised that it would not fit through the doorway! Then we thought, well, Liam will be sleeping in our room the first few months anyway, so it is better to have it in our bedroom. Didn't fit through that doorway either. So, we have to disassemble and then reassemble in the bedroom. Ooooops. We love the cot though! It can be a bassinet, then a regular cot, then it can be a first bed or a little couch too. Hopefully it will serve us well for the next 5-7 years.
Last night I was feeling him moving around, he's getting big and strong! Celeste told me I wasn't even feeling him in an active mood. Zoiks! I just can't imagine having that inside of me. I really do sympathise with how tired and sore that Let is feeling, but I'm still a bit of a grump about it sometimes. I'm just not good at being 100% 24/7 supportive. I am trying to take on more of a load to get things done around the house. I also brought Samson with me to the radio station this morning so he won't bother Celeste while she's trying to sleep.
Not much else to share really. Things are good here. What did you get for x-mas eh?
