introducing...


my friend dreena and her husband mike welcomed a son, riley graham, into the world last friday morning. we went over for a visit tonight and were amazed at just how small newborns are (and at how quickly we forgot), so fragile and wee. cohen came along for the visit and seemed much more interested in the "it's a boy" helium balloon than the micro human. his interest perked momentarily when i was holding riley, but i think that was more just confusion than anything.

for those of you that don't know, cohen is going to be a big brother come april. if tonight is any indication all we will need to do is keep him constantly supplied with helium balloons and he should be more than up to the challenge! all kidding aside, i think he is going to do great, i think we all will, just one step at a time. seeing riley tonight reminded me of all the amazing things we have to look forward to once again. it feels really great.

here is one more up close shot, apparently this is riley's favourite pose i like to call it "the cell phone negotiator".

Congratulations to Dreena & Mike! (Other than his onesie, he's got corporate lawyer written all over him (including the hair line)!)

I saw a three week old on the LRT the other day and I was shocked at how tiny and fragile it was. I had completely forgotten.

I like the idea of keeping helium balloons in stock! (And a public congratulations to you and Marko, too.)

Congrats on the next addition to your family. :) My sister is due in April as well, her first.

The border line ups aren't too bad weekdays now. I listen to 1130AM "on the ones" for the traffic reports whenever I'm out in the car and they give border time estimates so you know where to cross the quickest. From what I hear there the line ups on weekends are ok, but definitely better during the week. Fortunately we got Nexus Cards shortly after we moved back up here so we don't have to wait, which is awesome.
