And The Award Goes To….

MY HUSBAND!  For the best valentines day gift ever.   What is it you ask?  It’s the new Dirt Devil Kone hand vacuum cleaner.  How romantic hey?  I had to poke, I had to prod, I had to remind but I made my romance happen and my floors clean at the same time. This stemmed […]

A Bunch of Stuff

Wow, Silas’ birthday party is next week!!  I’m so excited.  It’s just going to be very small this year, just family pretty much.  I can’t handle a crowd, I just don’t wanna.  But feel free to still buy him pressies or send money…ha ha!! It’s been slightly exhausting trying to avoid wheat, oats, milk and […]

I Should Be Cleaning and Not Writing So Much!!

Holy cow it’s 3:30 and I haven’t blogged. I was letting Ikey slurp away at my bossoms while talking for hours on the phone with Jill. We hadn’t had a good, long phone call in a while. It was much needed. Ikey sucked for over an hour, but there wasn’t much milk. He hardly ate […]

Guilt

Why does being a mother involve guilt? Is it the guilt that drives us or the love? There’s nothing worse than non parents pointing out your faults as a parent. I don’t feel horribly guilty. My kids are going to have a way less stressful childhood than mine so I know they’re ok. Hopefully they […]

Sprinkler Fun

Yesterday marked the very first time I watered my very own lawn. Silas joined in on the festivities and we came out with these wonderful photos of him in all his glory.   What I didn’t realize during is that while he was enjoying this water bottle, he was also pooping. Then he touched it. […]

Don’t Worry, I’m Happy!

Isaac is completely delicious today.  He was in his bouncy chair giggling to himself this morning.  He’s such an easy little muffin.  I just put him on his tummy for tummy time and he’s just laying there all relaxed.  He’s falling asleep.  K he was falling asleep.  He’s stirring now.  I really couldn’t have asked […]

Oh Well

I think I’m softening. I’ve definitely inherited my mother’s “oh well” personality. I still call her after bad dreams and I hear an “oh well, it was just a dream”. Usually when Silas is freaking out about something stupid I’m usually the same way, “oh well”. I’ve never felt bad for letting him cry at […]

1 Week and 4 Days Left

Well, the baby is still inside of me.  I was hoping he’d come out yesterday but I guess he’s content to stay put for a while longer.  He’s welcome to come out now, I’m feeling very warm feelings towards him and Brent’s feeling ready for him to be out too.  Yesterday I tried some traditional […]

Husband to the Rescue

You know what?  Mini-wheats are incredibly filling.  I go through Mini-wheat phases because they really help keep me regular but I do get sick of them.  I’m going through a phase now though, I’m always so amazed by how full they keep me.  I just thought I’d let you all know that. My husband saved […]

Hitting and Biting and Scratching OH MY!

So my darling little Silas has turned into a violent little booger and I’m actually starting to get upset. He does this little hit and claw move where he hits you and then digs his nails in and pulls back, sometimes you get a pinch too. If you hold onto his hands then he will […]

Teething Never Ends

My darling Silas is starting to have a hard time again with his teethies.  At least we had a few weeks of really happy baby.  The poor kiddo, I can’t believe he’s cut 8 teeth since Christmas, the two molars are hardly cut and the other two are starting to get a bit white on […]

Nesting Urges.

I’m sneezing from all the dust that is trying to re-settle in my house after I cleaned my room.  Yes, you heard me right, I actually CLEANED my room.  It was gross in there and all my clothes were nowhere to be found.  I actually hung up clothes and folded clothes and I dusted and […]

Buying a Car and a Visit From Cootie!

Not much to talk about today. I can’t write for long because I want to get my house cleaned up for Courtenay and Emily. They should be here in a few hours if the highways are OK. I’m very excited to see them. Courtenay (Cootie) was my best friend in high school, we lived across […]

Spring Has Sprungeth

Ahhh, spring is in the air.  Well, the air is full of rain but I’m seeing the cherry blossom tree starting to bud and other flowering plants.  That’s one thing I LOVE about this area is the early spring and all the beautiful flowering trees and bushes, it’s so lovely.  I just wish the rain […]

Canucks Game Tonight!

So I read up on it and yes, there is a hormone that comes back into play in your third trimester that can make you ill.  Just my luck hey?  Last pregnancy I was still barfing everyday at this point so I didn’t notice.  I’m not even close to barfing, I’m just feeling icky.  I […]
