Project 365 : Week 10

Time is just flying by! Sofia is already 7 weeks old and it only feels like yesterday that she joined our little family. I was warned that time wouldn't stand still once she arrived, but it seems a little unfair that the last weeks of pregnancy go by so slowly, and the first few weeks of her life went by so quickly. She has changed so much already from the helpless little lass to a rather engaging little girl, we've been enjoying her great big grins and I can't wait until she starts to giggle. She's been sleeping so well and we're going on our second week of her consistently going 8-10 hours at night. We're very blessed!

As seems to be more normal than not, this week was quite busy. Merissa came up for the weekend and we were able to spend a quiet weekend just hanging out. Sometimes its good to have an excuse to do nothing, especially when we tend to always be on the go. I was quite thrilled that Merissa took some family photos for us, she did a great job!

Earlier in the week we turned a repair job that Byron needed to do into a road trip. Sofia and I drove up with him to Boyle, AB and while he worked, we enjoyed the gorgeous fall weather. Fall came just a few days earlier up there than it does here, so Sofia enjoyed her first glimpse of golden leaves there.

All of the Mosher's happened to be gone over the weekend so Byron and I took care of Petunia, the milk goat. I loved having the fresh milk! Growing up with goats I didn't mind having her around at all, it was kindof fun. I'm beginning to reconsider my reluctance to have milk goats around, she has so much personality and being able to run out to the barn for milk is rather a satisfying feeling.

We're off again over the weekend for a whirlwind trip to visit with my sister, Byron's grandpa, and pick up a truckload of apples from Calgary. Then crashing back with Mosher's for some family time over Thanksgiving. Life keeps racing along, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Right now our little family has so much flexibility and I don't want to take these moments for granted. We won't always be able to ride along with Byron while he manages work, but what a treat it is for the moment.
