Coming to Sweet Home Chicago.

Hi there, did I startle you? You must not have expected a blog post on a Saturday did you?

Well we are having are first snowfall of the season here in the Windy City so I am keeping it low key here on a Saturday morning, and after I grabbed myself a cinnamon roll from Ann Sathers to go (which you MUST try by the way), I thought I’d make a cup of coffee, and have a seat and try to remember to blog.

I guess you can say it is a combination of not being motivated, and being anxiously awaiting and preparing the home for my 3 and a half year old to arrive after being on an extensive stay at her grandparent’s in Europe as reasons why I haven’t been writing lately.

It almost felt like waiting for the arrival of a new baby execpt this time it was waiting for an arrival of a little one that has grown into a little lady, speaking a second language(she is officially bilingual),and officially out of diapers amongst other things.

When she arrived home in Chicago she immediately went to her toys she hasn’t seen in awhile (hello Disney Princess Castle and Little People!) even though it was 11pm. The girl was a chatterbox the whole ride home from the airport,in her newly learned second language. I am truly amazed.

When she had left she was pretty verbal but just a little over 2 and a half and speaking only English and still in diapers. Her grandparents who live here have been spending time with her recently while I go to work and they are just as impressed and amazed how much she has grown.

So far we have been having great adventures and she got to meet her new niece for the first time. It has been a bittersweet reunion.

Since I went ages without posting kid’s pictures on here, I will do so today, hope you don’t mind. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am truly excited that she is here for the Holidays and looking forward to exploring what the city has in store and spending quality time with her.

First day back here,she loved the welcome balloon I got her:

    • Awww thank you! I figured I put and update on her since it has been eons since I really posted anything about her. And that cake pop is a total fail because she thinks it’s a lollipop and doesn’t get that she can actually eat it lol. Hope all is well!
