January 23rd

Earlier this week I wrote out a big long post whining and complaining about a bunch of things I’ve been whining and complaining about forever. Then I saved it as a draft and decided to not post it, and I’m really glad I didn’t because this turned out to be a great goddamn week.

Spontaneous ramen date.
Gwen loves pigeons and follows them around the park, holding her hand out like she does to the dogs.
Normally I wouldn’t go for white pants on a toddler but these fleece ones were on clearance for TWO DOLLARS and at that price you really can’t go wrong.

Gwen had her followup appointment with the pediatrician who confirmed that we didn’t have anything to worry about re: her being a late talker and said Gwen was very smart. She really is talking a lot more nowadays anyway- she’s added “coh” (coat) and “kih” (kiss) to her vocabulary this week and she’s constantly asking us (by pointing) what things are called. She’s also started giving us spontaneous hugs, which I can’t get enough of.

I had an appointment with my endocrinologist to see where my thyroid was at after being off the medication for six weeks aaaaaaand my Graves’ Disease is in remission!
This means I DON’T have to go back on medication, I DON’T have to have a thyroidectomy, I DON’T have to have a radioactive iodine treatment, and best of all, if (hopefully when) Taylor and I decide we want to try to have another baby we don’t have to wait- I would just ned to get my thyroid levels checked to make sure they are still normal. Of course, my Graves’ could come back, at which point I’d have to decide which treatment option I want to go with but for now I don’t even have to think about it.

Taylor and I went out last night to the Death From Above 1979 show, which was AMAZING. We hadn’t been OUT out together in a really long time. Honestly I hadn’t been out like that at all in about a million years, and being at the Commodore brought back a lot of memories (WOW what an old person thing to say). We didn’t get home until almost midnight (ON A WORKNIGHT????) and I am a lil bit hungover today. It was definitely worth it though; the show was great, I love spending time with Taylor and even drinking pints of Molson Canadian has a certain nostalgia to it.
