Between the two of us, Aaron and I have been to about 35 countries (does Antarctica count as a country?), but there is still no place like home. One of the things Canadians say makes us “Canadian” is our universal healthcare. Well, after Addison’s lengthy – and very costly – hospital stay, we couldn’t agree more. Though there are so many other reasons we live in the best country in the world.
We aren’t allowed to get on any airplanes for a year because of Addison’s immune system, but Seattle and other points across the border are within driving distance! So to celebrate Canada Day, we took Addison to get her first set of passport photos. It’s kind of difficult to get a baby passport photo that follows all the rules: you can’t see the baby’s hands, can’t see the parent’s hands, baby has to be looking at the camera with mouth sort of closed, baby’s face can’t be too shiny. Hopefully, her photo won’t get rejected or we’ll have to do it all over again. Already today, I think they snapped about 20 pics before getting one we think will pass the inspection.
Happy Canada Day!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
