We seem to be going through a lot of changes, some big, some subtle. My job has transformed and is taking up more time in my week, so I am with Amelie a little less than before. I work short days but the change was felt profoundly between us and has taken some adjusting. In addition to being with my very patient and ever-supportive parents twice a week, we have an amazing nanny who Ammy has come to love.
With more work and morning sickness, it was a very different summer from last year. It was also crazy hot. And smokey. In June, the smoke from the wildfires drifted our way and made being outside in the 100 degree weather even more unpleasant. We worried for my parents and their mountain home, and were saddened by the news stories of lost homes and destroyed forests.
But now, as the summer comes to a close, I am feeling much better, the weather is beautiful, and there is much to look forward to.
Just a couple of weeks ago we took a short vacation with my family to the mountains. It was the perfect weekend getaway, and we had a lot of fun with everyone.
