Baby boy is the only person in our house who’s had enough free time to sit in front of a laptop recently, so I apologize for the big delays in updating. However, I have a hunch that the rest of you are just as busy as we are preparing for the holidays (which for me also involves group projects and gearing up for final exams) and aren’t begging to see your feed reader clogged with unread items.
Speaking of that little cutie, he had a bit of a runny nose on Wednesday which cleared up the same day, and I didn’t think much of it. That is, until Friday when I came down with a full-blown cold.

It’s been another busy week. After making it through midterms, next up was Halloween, which now that I’m a mom actually involves doing more than just buying a few bags of candy to hand out to the neighborhood kids.
As you can see, the little man was looking cute dressed up as a NASA Astronaut Commander. We also dressed him as a dinosaur on Saturday night. My mother in law and sister in law came over to enjoy the festivities on Sunday and we took the kiddo trick-or-treating at the homes of a few close neighbors just for fun.
The not so fun part was when I noticed a water leak coming through the ceiling into the kitchen. The Ninja played the part of Superman that night by locating the source of the leak and making it stop… My hero! Turns out the hot water pipe valve connector from the bathroom sink upstairs had started slowly dripping and the water eventually worked its way down to the first floor.
Since we had already committed to having new windows installed before this little mishap occurred, I was worried about the financial fiasco this water damage could cause. Fortunately the fix will be fairly minor, but in the future let’s please try not to give the pregnant woman a heart attack.
Those new windows were just installed today and I’m already loving the difference. The additional peace and quiet is great. Upgrading is a decent investment if you have old, single-pane, aluminum framed windows and sliding glass doors like we did. The new stuff looks and works great.
