The days just blur together...
I keep forgetting what day it is, as this week has just flown by without much regular routine; a welcome respite to relax and just be in the moment with Ariel and help around the house as much as possible before returning to work. Today was the rehearsal dinner for Mike & Jo's wedding day tomorrow, and we spent some time at a nearby park going through the motions for the wedding party. Ariel stayed behind and was passed around by other relatives until we got back to the house. I think we are certainly at that point now where we really miss her when she's not around. As much as I'm looking forward to Ottawa in a big way, part of me is really sad I'll be so far away for almost a week. There is nothing like having her curled up and snuggly...it's the most amazing feeling. The daddy gene is definitely starting to kick in and I'm getting rather hooked. Jay is a pretty hot mom, too.
Tonight I took this picture of some of the party balloons that floated away into the sky. I like it alot...it's rather poetic. I'm not sure what I think it means, so I'll leave it up to you.
