… because we had a baby! Please forgive me? Parenthood is demanding. And wonderful.
Grant Ruedi was born March 24, 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. His middle name comes from my great-great-grandfather Henry Rüedi, who was also born in Switzerland.
Grant is a smiley, wriggly, chirpy three-month-old who has stolen our hearts (and our sleep!). We could not be more in love with this little diaper-clad fellow.
Grant has already been to the Washington D.C., Paris and parts of Switzerland, so I’m learning a good bit about traveling with a baby. I will write more about what I’ve learned when I find the time (so please be patient). Goodness knows I rely heavily on the community of other writers with babies when it comes to my travel questions.
Also, there is also much to share about giving birth abroad and becoming an expat mother. And on taking a passport photo of a two-week-old. Wow.
For now, some fun links from around the world:
