We are back :):)

Well I must say that it feels good to be home. I am glad I am back to reality and to my life at home. I really had a fun time on our trip to see my family in California. It felt more special since Addis was with me and that I was finally getting a chance to show him off to my big family. We had a blast for sure and I would love to do it again real soon. Dave did make it for the first week and Addis and I stayed on for another 3 weeks without him. I must say that was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I missed him a lot and he missed us too. Its hard to be separated from someone who pretty much spends every moment with you. I could tell Addis missed him too because he didn't have anyone to play with him like daddy does so you could imagine what their first play time was like.
we had fun seeing my family and spending time with my gradient's. I did a lot of driving in those 4 weeks on the freeway and I am glad to be back on good old London roads! It was hard to leave family you love and care about so much but that is what makes it easier to go back and visit again.
so like I said before, its back to reality for me. I have had to plan Addis 1st birthday party in less than a week and I am hoping the weather will be nice enough so we can pull it off. We are having a bbq picnic birthday party so we can have lots of people come by and hang out and have kids play games outdoors and stuff. Its going to be in a really nice park area, the conservation area which has some cool playgrounds and picnic tables so it should be good. I am disappointed to say that some people that are really important to me cannot make it but some for valid reasons ( you know who you are ).I am excited but sad at the same time. This means a year of my life has gone by so quickly and that I will have to leave my baby and go to work... The next day!! Its so heart breaking to leave him after getting to be with him for awhile year...But it does have to go on. He is going to be with daddy for the most part and grandma for the rest of the time but I will only be working until 2:30 in the afternoon so that wont be so bad. I know that I will be a mess on September 11 but I know that its what I have to do. Hopefully I will be lucky enough to get a different job working part time instead of full time but we will see. until then we will manage...
well I am going to add some pics of Addis from our trip.. One thing that was crappy about my trip was that the new memory card I bought for my camera didn't work! So my cousins took the pics for me with their camera and all 183 pictures have Addis in them! I love my son and all but really now ... No pics of other family members, just mainly Addis!
well until next time

Glad to hear you made it back safe & sound! the pictures you posted are completely adorable - can't believe how big he's getting! And it's even harder to believe that a year ago you were waddling around (sorry to use that word) counting the minutes before you went into labour.

Sure wish I could be there for his 1st birthday party. Since I was there for a lot of the other big events relating to him, it makes this even harder to miss.

Keep on posting! it's the only way I get to see you guys :)

lots of love from the "other" London,
