16 Weeks – #2

How far along: 16 wonderful weeks!  And this past week 15-16 was the fastest yet.  I don’t have a clue why, because we didn’t do anything different.  Time just sped up, and I’m super grateful. (more…)

Right Now – October 8

Loving// I’m just feeling pretty positive about life right now.  5 days ago?  The very opposite.  I forgot what a crazy rollercoaster of uncontrollable emotions pregnancy is for me.  I go from the depths of despair to fiery anger to complete contentment within the space of a week.  It’s insane.  The past three days have been great and I don’t take it for granted!

14 Weeks – #2

How far along? I’m now 14 weeks and in my second trimester.  This is a moment that seemed so so far away at the beginning (which was only 10 weeks ago).  The next “I can’t imagine it getting here” moment is 20 weeks, but that’s actually going to happen super quickly because 4 entire weeks of that will be spent in Chilliwack/on a solo vacation to Quebec City!!

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!
