Baby #2 is on the way!

We had so much fun taking pictures for the announcement!  And they all turned out great and I just couldn’t choose!  We’re so very happy to be welcoming another kid into our very ready family.

12 Weeks – #2

How far along? 12 weeks, and just about 1/3 of the way through.  My math tells me a third of the way is 13.3 weeks (40/3).  Could the days drag on any slower? Ha.   (more…)

Hazel’s First Day of School

We signed Hazel up for a 2-year old playschool program and it started today.  Hazel was so stoked she didn’t even say good-bye, she just raced outside to the playground!  She had so much fun, didn’t miss me at all and totally lit up when she saw me outside her classroom to pick her up.  She’s amazing.  I, on the other hand, was sitting in the parking lot 25 minutes earlier than I needed to because I was such a bundle of nerves.  I missed her!  Her program is only 2 hours every Wednesday, which is lovely, though I think she would like it more often.  I can’t say how proud I am of her, and I do realize this much emotion over 2-hours of mommy free time is kinda ridiculous on my part!  I watched her through the one-way glass for the last 10 minutes of her class and she was just perfect.  I love her so much! Even packing her very first “lunch” (it was a snack) that I wouldn’t be around for was exciting/emotional for me.As for what I did with my two hours?  Drank tea and got started on HP numero 3. Picked up some packages.  Stress purchased chocolate from the store and then waited until it was a decent time to go pick her up.  I’ll get better at this…
After playschool, we headed to the park for some play and a picnic.  And then a nap!

Right Now – September 8

Loving // I have a bar of cinnamon scented soap in our bathroom and it smells so good.  Impossibly good.  I want to wear it as a necklace so everywhere I go it smells like this great soap.   (more…)

10 Weeks – #2

How far along? Today I am 10 weeks, finally in double digits!  Getting here seemed to take unbelievably long.  In fact, I’ve been so worried about losing this baby that this is the first time I’ve written about it.  And unlike the first and second times, I’ve only taken 2 pictures so far.  Fortunately, I still feel pregnant, and I’m starting to get more confident this might actually work out.

Road Trip 2017

Road trip time!  Shane, Hazel and I went on our most epic road trip to date.  We covered 6,500km over 17 days.  To say it was a lot of driving would be an understatement.  No regrets though!  It was an amazing experience in so many ways.  I don’t think we (as a family) have ever had that much uninterrupted time together and it felt so good.  Shane went back to work last night and while money is great, we really missed being together.  Here is our trip and some of the highlights along the way.

Day 1 – FN to Grande Prairie.  No highlights here! Just good old fashioned boring northern BC driving. (more…)
