So, it's been a while. Here's why:
Baby gets high fever for four days, ruining his first birthday party and forcing us to kick out assembled family members to take him to the clinic on Easter Sunday.
The next day, I leave home to spend the week in Ottawa for work-related meetings.
A hefty dose of mom guilt ensues.
Meanwhile, it turns out he has roseola.
Husband stays home from work for two days to take care of sick baby.
... and so on.
Anyway, I am home, baby is much better and I think everyone has recovered. But today... today is his one-year checkup, which means he will get stuck with multiple needles. It's always something.
