A “day” in the life

So, I had this idea that I would attempt to document everything we did for one day, as a window into motherhood for moms to be. HA. I got 2 hours done and sent that idea into the trash.  There is no time to try to remember everything we did for one day, let alone one hour.  I think if I had […]

Leggings for Lina

They are here!

We have been faithfully checking the mailbox each day in anticipation of the zebra leggings we ordered last week in support of Squamish’s Lina Palethorpe. We galloped home from the mailbox today to try on our fabulous Leggings for Lina. We love them! Not only will they fit her for ages, but they are perfect for easy diaper changes, and we […]

Dinner Theatre

Before having our kiddo, I had this vision that all nursing babies eat peacefully, skillfully, quietly and calmly.  Enter serene Enya music playing in the background…

Enter fast letdown/hefty milk supply + overzealous eater = embarrassingly loud mealtimes. Unless we are feeding whilst half asleep at night (or nice and dopey after a nap), nursing sessions at our house sound like a battle zone. […]

  • Project 48:3 - Late

Project 48:3 – Late.

Project 48 is part of an online project to take one photo a week for one year to document our lives. I was 4 weeks late :)

THREE – Late.
I am a planner. It pains me to be late. Before your little sassy-butt joined us I was slightly intolerant of lateness in others. Ok, that maybe an understatement. I found security and assuredness in scheduling […]

  • I Told You So

“I Told You So”

Last night I was preparing draft versions of our tax returns to check out our potential refunds and see if we wanted to adjust our RRSP contributions for the year (I know, I know…NERD). Hubby and I were chatting about what to do with a portion of our refunds, and decided upon a new dishwasher as ours is a hunk of junk. […]

Thankful for a cold

Both baby and I are sick with a cold. It’s nothing super debilitating – body aches, mild fevers, snot for days, and bring on the Cranky with a capital ‘C’ (me, mostly. Just ask hubby).  While we are certainly not enjoying ourselves on this Superbowl Sunday, just dealing with these few days of a mildly sick baby makes me incredibly thankful that we […]

Ten Things I Learned about Babyhood

I visited a friend yesterday who has a beautiful new baby girl, 2 1/2 weeks old and gorgeous as can be.  Watching her teeny tiny baby I never thought I’d ever say “were you ever that small?’, but already, 4 months later, those first few weeks for us seem a blur. Perhaps my subconscious is blocking them out as a self-defense […]

Project 48:2 – Milestones and Moodswings

TWO – Milestones and Moodswings
Today is your 4 month birthday.  I cannot believe my life has changed so much in one year. Approximately one year ago we were just discovering that you were […]

  • Baby Got Back

Baby got back.

I won’t name names, but a certain baby in my life has a hard time fitting into pants. She’s got booty for days. J-Lo would be envious.  Perhaps I watched a few too many episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians during those last few weeks of the third trimester once my mat leave had kicked in.

Ok, so I’m slightly […]

Quest for the white noise machine

I really didn’t think this would be so difficult. It seemed like such a simple request: find a white noise machine to buy locally, to help keep bubs asleep a little bit longer during naps and nighttime.  As I’ve mentioned previously, we were gifted a Sleep Sheep, however for some reason its makers decided to leave out an option to have […]
