It's been January 27th for about a half-hour. I am exhausted after a long work day, so this is a short one. Callum doesn't officially turn 2 until later this morning, but I think, given how long it's been since we put anything up here, it's a good time to at least say happy birthday. Tomorrow morning we're having a little party (very small: Kim & Bill & Nick, Toni & John, Leyan and her family would have come but they are all getting over colds ... ). Balloons and a LOT of presents for the birthday boy.
No point in getting too deep into it right now, but Cal turning 2 ... it's a pretty big deal.
He's doing great - some issues with his skin (he's got a bit of eczema around his eyes, which has to irritate the living daylights out of him - and drives us crazy too since we are trying just about everything to combat it, with only limited success) but mostly he is healthy and happy. Voracious reader, as always. We also see him getting frustrated more often, which is heartbreaking. But it's not the whole story, and he is just as good at getting out of a bad mood, getting excited and engaged, as ever.
His most quotable quote right now is "don't worry dada, I'll help you!"
As I write, I realize how much there is to take note of - all the new stuff he's doing, saying, all the things we are doing together.
More tomorrow - time to sleep now. Tomorrow is a big day.
