  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

christmas-2016-1Hey, everyone! Did you know that there are only twelve more days until Christmas? This holiday season not only marks the first Christmas that we’re celebrating with a baby, but also the first one that we’re celebrating with a tree! Somehow that seems to make it more official.

christmas-2016-2Our home is looking pretty festive. Not as festive as many other homes, but extremely festive for our standards. Since we’re establishing a wide variety of traditions this year, decorating our home seemed like another important one to start. So far, we put up Christmas lights, hung a wreath on our door, and purchased a little outdoor plant.

christmas-2016-7Inside our home is a different story. We set up and decorated a tree, wrapped some gifts, hung tree lights, and put scented candles all over the house.

christmas-2016-6christmas-2016-5We bought a fair number of ornaments for the tree this year, sticking to a white, black, and gold theme. Because we had to start from scratch, we also didn’t want to buy too many. I think that it would be fun to add to our collection each year, in addition to whatever Remy will make us as she grows older.

christmas-2016-8It will also be fun to look back at pictures of our tree every year and see how it’s changed. Honestly, I feel as if life is so much more exciting with a child! Why did we wait so long to have one?

(Early) Merry Christmas, all!

    • Really? Oh, well thank you. However, I don’t think that it is at all! Haha. We just moved in about 3 months ago, and EVERYTHING needs to be done to it. Starting from painting the exterior of the house (from green to white), removing the carpet inside, changing the wall colour, staining the baseboards … and the list goes on. But thanks again! Your comment gives me hope. :-)))
