It has been far, far too long since I posted, but I am promising myself to get back in to the swing of things. Being away from the blog I realized I really need it. There is so much to think through in raising a child in a language that is not native to you, and the reflection I do while writing is invaluable. The feedback I get is maybe even more important, and the little words of encouragement from parents who are further along in this process make me feel like maybe, just maybe I haven’t lost my mind in taking this on.
It has been more than a month! Nelson is four months old now. Happy, healthy, and more and more of a handsome little devil every day. I have loosened up a bit with my speaking French (one day last week I spoke French with five different adults in one day, and was feeling VERY pleased with myself). And my French continues to improve. All is going well.
