Moved and settled in

I know it's been a while since I've updated, but in all fairness, I did just have a baby, and we moved to a new place at the beginning of November. Life is busy, that's all there is to it. We've settled in quite nicely to our new home. It's a townhouse style place this time, and we quite like having our own separate unit instead of being in an apartment. It really makes a place feel like your own when you have to pay your own utility bills. I've become obsessed with turning off lights... There are some little things that still need to be done, like hanging up curtains, buying blinds for the bedrooms, picking up a garbage pail and recycling bings for outside so our house won't constantly smell like refuse, those sorts of things. But in general all the essential boxes are unpacked, and the place is really starting to feel like home.

Reuben is growing like a weed. He is now 6 1/2 weeks old and weighs 10lbs 12oz. We had our final appointment with the midwives this week, so we are no longer under their care and have to deal with the family doc from now on...we'll have to see how that transition goes. Not having a whole lot of faith in the conventional health care system I'm not particularly looking forward to it, but oh well. I've really enjoyed having someone on call that I can contact 24-7. Anyway, here's some pics...sorry they're not more up to date, but they're still cute.
