Happy Thanksgivng!



Well, it is Williams first Thanksgiving! We had a lovely dinner at my Mom and Dad's on Saturday. This is a pic of my little munchkin in his NEw York Yankees hat that he got from his Uncle Markus who is a Yankees fan. He has some room to grow I to this hat, but just the same I wanted to take a picture of him in it!

I can't believe that it is already Thanksgiving. This time of year is always a great time of year to stop and think about the things that I am thankful for! This year it is no surprise that I am thankful for my little man William born on August 30th. He has only been in my life such a short time, but he has brought so much joy! My husband Andrei is also a person I am very thankful for, as he is an amazing partner and such an involved Daddy! He takes good care of both me and his son! Next, I am very thankful for my parents and sister! They are and continue to be fabulous support both physically and emotionally! I have very caring in-laws who take good care of us!  I am thankful that I live in a clean home and a safe neighborhood. This allows me to be able to focus on the small things in life. I have  caring and supportive friends! I have a lot to be thankful for!

Meeting G.G (Great Grandma)




My Grandma had a very bad fall this summer. She has been in the hospital since early July. She is now in a recovery centre to continue with her physio and recovery. We were finally in a place where we could get organized to go and see G.G. She was very excited about the birth of her great grand child. She has seen lots of pictures, but hadn't met him in person. So, yesterday we packed up the baby bag, car, and I even took a shower! I hadn't had one of those in quite a few days. These are a luxury when you have a new born. 

It was worth the journey!! Grandma or G.G was very proud of him. She was showing him off to the staff and loved every minute that she held him. Although she had to take a break because he does get very heavy.

Can't wait until they get to spend time
Together again!!

41 weeks + 1 Day









That's right...l am still pregnant. If nothing happens today, I am going to be induced tomorrow. Baby and I are both quite uncomfortable now I think! I have terrible bruising and stretch marks around my belly button for the baby stretching out. It has been painful. I wake up every time I need to roll over. Getting out of the bed and chairs is challenging, or simply going to pick up something like dishes out of the bottom rack of the dish washer. However, Andrei is a true blessing as he has really stepped up and helped! 

We put the final touches on the baby's room, so I thought I would post them here. The theme of the bedroom is owls. But, Andrei wanted to incorporate bulldogs as well! The baby change table is
vintage. It was made by my father 35 years ago for me. My sister was also changed on it too! We added the baskets and the top change pillow to help keep baby safe from rolling. The rocking chair is from my Grandma she didn't want it any more and so she gave it to us. The chest of drawers and the night table was my furniture from when I was 9 years old. I got my own bedroom set. The Owl lamp was a gift from my sister. The owl piggy bank was a gift from my Mom and Dad. The crib and bedding we bought new. The wall decal was purchased from Amazon. 

We areas ready as we can be for our first born. Now just waiting for the little one to cooperate.

40 weeks + 5 Days


Well, I am not eating ice cream, but I am puking. I am doing a lot of sitting because I am just too uncomfortable to do anything else. Thank goodness for you tube and reading to pass the time. A few false contractions but then nothing. There are only two guesses left on my baby pool. Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th.  So, I guess there is a slight possibility that no one is correct.

Sneak Peek of Maternity Photoshoot

Due to my medical history with pregnancy, I didn't really take  many  documenting my growing bump. As seen with a previous post, most of them were taken with my iPhone. I have a 3GS which doesn't have a very good quality camera like the new models of iPhone that are five years newer. However, I did want to have some pictures to capture this significant moment and memory in my life. My days of growing to be a Mommy. We went to Lifestyle Photography in Langley. Charlie did an amazing job with the photos, as well as making Andrei and I feel comfortable in front of he camera. She has a beautiful backyard for photos and great studio. Once bump is born we will be returning for the Newborn Baby shoot.

My Due Date Today...Still waiting





So, I am still waiting for this baby's arrival. I have been not feeling myself since yesterday morning, and having very subtle contractions. They intensified last night, and then they dwindled very early this morning. They have been occurring on and off today. It is hard to eat because my body rejects food, and I am drinking lots of water so I am not dehydrated.  I just had a nap, so I feel less tired. But, still have contractions both around my tummy and back. We will see if this progresses. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow, so if anything I will know more about this baby's arrival.

Sister's Bachelorette Party









I made it to my sisters's Bachelorette Party. I didn't think I was going to make it! But, the party has been cleaned up and it was a major success! We went with a baseball theme. The girls started at the batting cages, and then came to my house for appies and beverages. We played two games. One was an underwear guessing game and the other one was how well do you know Markus. 

Lots of laughs and yummy snacks! Redley was such a flirt! He had fun spending time with us girls!
