Christmas Update 2012

Another few months have flown past and its time to summarize the highlights from the last 6 months!  Craig’s Dad (Opa to his grandchildren) and his sister Cherie came to visit in October for Jesse’s 1st birthday!

We've got a baby!


Anna started noticing something was happening late last night and after hanging around home for as long as she could we called the midwife who suggested we leave for the hospital pretty soon after she arrived at our house. We got there at about 2am and our little boy arrived at 2:39am, weighing 4.21kg or 9 pounds 5 oz. In answer to all of Anna's prayers, it was quick and complication free, thank you Lord.

Summer-time in Minnesota

We are still in Minneapolis!  It is now a year since we moved here from Syracuse, and we have been able to take advantage of the many local activities available such as parks and playgrounds, the zoo, the Minnesota Children’s Museum, the orchestra, concerts and mosquito swatting.

Scan 2


Well, yesterday was another scan day. The baby is too big to fit in one photo but we got to see interesting "pieces", the spine, the leg & foot bones & even got to see it opening & closing it's mouth and moving it's tongue around.

In the last couple of days we've both felt a few kicks which is very exciting!

No Facebook


Since Facebook won't let you make an account for a baby that is yet to be born (or anyone under age 13 for that matter), here is some baby related stuff.

Yes we are expecting a baby, due some time near the end of Nov or early December.

On the 9th we heard the heartbeat, & on the 24th we got a scan with the photos below.

Our Family Expands

We are pleased to announce that our second son Jesse was born on 17 October 2011.

Move to Minnesota

Greetings from Minneapolis!  We moved to the Mid-West at the end of July, and are now living with Edelweiss’ Mom in her apartment.

Technical roundup

I wanted to do a final update with some details for the technically minded.

As far as technology goes, the trip went great as well. I wasn't quite sure how the data roaming bill would end up, so before I left I set up my trusty Nokia N95 with all the maps we would need around Europe, and I tried to use free wifi where I could.


On the way home we had a long stop over in Brunei, from 8 in the morning to 10 at night.
