And I bet she’ll be a gourmet as soon as she can eat solid food 🙂 A warm hug from Italy, from one of your faithful readers. Anca Reply ↓ waterfallsandcaribous June 22, 2014 • 2:57 pm Thanks for your lovely message, Anca! We suspect she might already be a gourmet and that she was deliberately late arriving due to the prospect of being stuck with boring old milk for the first six months, haha.

Olive is beautiful :’) Esp. H-J, 辛苦了!!!! (which literally means “you have suffered” in Chinese, but is kind of a way of saying ‘well done’ or ‘great job’ haha). And I love that she is named after food. I will probably do the same if I ever have a child. Reply ↓ waterfallsandcaribous July 10, 2014 • 4:22 am Thanks so much, Jina! We look forward to introducing you when you’re here 🙂 Any ideas on food names for future babies?! Hehe. Reply ↓ When in New Places July 24, 2014 • 1:04 am Congratulations HJ and Dan!!!

Excited about having an extra along for the ride… Reply ↓ jennytrax July 24, 2014 • 8:52 pm Congratulations! What a beautiful Baby! Reply ↓ waterfallsandcaribous July 30, 2014 • 5:10 am Thank you so much! We’re feeling pretty impressed with ourselves, haha. Reply ↓ richardmcgary August 12, 2014 • 4:46 am Oh, WOW. I knew you most likely had the baby by now and I’m really excited for you. Please forgive is for our delay in congratulations but our 24 yr old and our 34 yr old are now living with us again which puts a cramp in blogging. 😮 Oh, the joys of parenthood. 😉 All I can tell you is to get ready for the wildest ride of your life. BTW, if you ever receive a manual for Olive, please send it to me ASAP as we never received one for ANY of our children – it can never be too late. They also came with no warranty, express or implied, and perpetually drain our bank accounts, not to mention our energy and emotions. Think of it as the wildest roller coaster ride of your life taking you to the highest highs and most amazing drops conceivable. Labor is a piece of cake in comparison or so I’m told. 🙂 You will also find it is your secret, innermost desire is for her to have children so she can experience the same ride as you and finally understand. 😀 Much congratulations!!!!! You both will be wonderful parents and we wish you, and Olive, all the best. She will change your life in ways you have never dreamed. Reply ↓ waterfallsandcaribous August 15, 2014 • 2:35 am Wow, if what is to come pales in comparison to labour, I DEFINITELY want to find that return card, stat, haha. I’ll let you know if I find a source of manuals/money-trees/warranties… It’s funny you should say that about looking forward to your children having children. My mum has been quite open about her desire for this arrangement for a few years now (she even heckled our wedding vows, haha) and is absolutely relishing it, even from afar. It seems to be a pretty special relationship and, even better, one in which you can spoil them rotten and give them back to the parents at the end of the day. We’re loving the roller coaster ride so far and cannot stop oogling her and congratulating ourselves for making such a fabulous little critter. Hope you and yours are all well and lovely to have you back! xxx Reply ↓ Shelli@howsitgoingeh? August 12, 2014 • 10:36 pm Olive, dear Olive. Langdon is waiting in the prairies of Canada to give you a big chubby hug! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I love your maternity gown by the way. Yours, or the hospitals??? You guys look sooooooooooo in love! Reply ↓ waterfallsandcaribous August 15, 2014 • 2:30 am Oh that outfit was most definitely the hospitals…and they are very particular that you must wear it the whole time, lest you escape and not be recognisable by your garb. Mmm head-to-toe-pink…ahhhhh.
