Magnus is now a little over 3 weeks and is doing great!! Being a parent is fantastic! Magnus has a lot to do with that. He is a perfect little baby. Cries very little and sleeps lots. I must say that this being a new mom has so far been much less stressful than I had expected. But the whole experience has been wonderful from the first days of pregnancy right through to labor.
All the relatives have now left and we are now back to a regular routine. We had a steady flow of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for the past three weeks and my parents stayed for the first few weeks to help us with Magnus and help finish our basement as well. With that done, the real relaxing can begin. Kris is enjoying his new job downtown at Shell and we have already gone to meet him downtown for lunch. Magnus is surely the most cultured and well traveled baby around. In his short life he has already been to Heritage Park here in Calgary, Banff to see the mountains, Drumheller to the Tyrell museum, and he is already an official annual member of the Calgary Zoo with his own picture ID.
Our next big chore is to get his new passport so the real world traveling can begin. We are hoping to get Magnus on his first plane ride to Saskatoon for Thanksgiving, then Brantford in November for his baptism and then back for Christmas and we are hoping to have him on his first international voyages to San Francisco and the Azores next year.
So life just couldn't get anymore grand!! More photos and news on Magnus and life in Calgary soon.
