Audrey is growing too. Just crawling and scooting around everywhere. Her favorite thing to do is climb the stairs which we let her down under close watch. When the gates are up she stands there and screams and rattles the bars. This is to let us know she is becoming a little girl with a mind all her own. On Tuesday she will be 13 months old and she still has no teeth as you can see in the photos. The doctor told us not to worry so we're not and instead enjoying that toothless grin as long as we can.
I think the best thing about the last few weeks has been a real increase in how much Isaiah and Audrey have started playing together. They are crawling over each other and having ticklefests. It's a joy to see.
On a job note, Miro was successful in winning a proposal to conduct a community open house for a trails group who is expanding a trail system in the city. It is a chance for the community to get information about the development and to provide input. This means Miro is involved in all aspects of planning and implementing the open house and then providing the final report. We were so pleased that he was successful in that. This is really the first step towards him beginning a consulting business to do facilitation, strategic planning and community development. You can see some his thoughts and plans about the business on his business blog: www.journeyconsulting.blogspot.com
At the same time we are getting serious about planting a church/Christian community in Halifax. In January we will be seeking to build up a team of people with whom we could begin something during 2012. It's still unknown in many ways but we're trusting day by day that the way will open up.
Now on to the cute stuff - photos:
