A little over a month ago when Jason's dad was in town we did a quick day trip up to Cologne. Jason and I had been once when we first moved here, so I was looking forward to going again. Unfortunately the wind that day was bitterly cold and Emma was too much for Emma, so we couldn't wander around as much as I would have liked. The Dom is always amazing to see.
We did an overnight trip up to Dusseldorf last night. Its only two hours away and could have been done in a day, but we treated ourselves and stayed overnight. Emma had an awful night's sleep (not unusual for her unfortunately), but it was made worse because Jason and I stayed up too late visiting with friends prior to her waking. Besides the wakeful night, the city was fun! The river was beautiful and the bar scene was the best I've seen in all of Germany so far!
Its been a while since I've posted. There just doesn't seem to be time for it most days. As she gets older though, I find that I have a little more time to myself bit by bit.
Emma is 10 months old now. She is walking and eating solids. She's so expressive and goofy, its fun. She develops everyday and I feel really lucky that I get to be home with her and see it firsthand.
Its finally starting to warm up here a bit (thank goodness!). Its been a much colder winter than last year, but you can see signs of spring popping up. Its tulip season in Holland, which is not too far away, and the tulip display at the grocery is gorgeous. I plan to keep some in the house until they're out of season! It makes me happy to see them in the window.
We have recently gotten word that we will be leaving Germany early and heading to New York at the end of the summer! I'm pretty excited to be back in the States. There's a lot for us to explore in New England and to have all the conveniences of the US back - not to mention the plane ride to family is much more doable!
We have some pretty amazing trips coming up this summer, so our remaining time here is sure to be exciting and will probably fly by! I'll try to be better about posting!
