remy is three

You guys. Remy turns three years old today. Three!!

I feel like this past year went the quickest of all since she was born. Geoff was still living in a different city at the beginning of last year. Then in February, she turned two, and little did I know that I was already two weeks pregnant. Shortly thereafter we found out, and so we filled the year with finalizing renovations on our home, cherishing the pregnancy, and relishing in our last year of having her as an only child.

Over this last year, Remy has gone from barely talking to barely staying quiet. She is now potty trained, can count to fifty (forwards and backwards), knows how to spell her name, can draw faces and recognizable shapes, gets dressed by herself, and helps out with everything related to Wilder. She is still fiercely shy around adults that she does not know, but loves all children of all ages. I would say that this was the year that she grew up.

We love our little goose more than anything. She is certainly not perfect, but she is a sweet, kind, and stubborn little girl who is turning into a beautiful soul. I am sad to let go of two, but am excited for her to turn three and all that it will bring.

Keep growing, my darling. Happy birthday. I love you!

geoffrey’s 33rd birthday

My dear husband recently took another year around the sun. I am not sure why I tend to dedicate a blog post to his birthdays and not mine- maybe because it is more fun to celebrate the birthdays of those that you love. Regardless of the reason, this year, celebrate we did.

We chose to go to the Remai Modern art museum in Saskatoon. Even though it had opened in 2017, we had yet to visit it. After spending the morning getting ready (and trying to help Remy feel a bit healthier), we finally made it out the door. We drove a very short distance, parked, and went inside.

We unfortunately chose a day where they were working on a new exhibit, and so a few of the galleries were closed. The Learning Studio was also not open until later that day. But the museum was relatively empty, and so we explored all three levels with ease. We began with the Picasso Collection, and ended in the gift shop.

It really is such a beautiful building. Everything about it is so eye-catching. The artwork, although minimal, was really engaging as well. The only downside was that it felt like more of a great date destination for us, and not so much a welcoming place for our children. Remy’s favourite part was the play area, which consisted of foam seats, a few children that happened to be on their way out, and the gift shop. She still had fun, but we were mostly telling her “don’t touch that!”

I would love to go back with just Geoffrey if and when we actually start date nights again. Until then, here are those photos from our lovely morning.

Happy birthday, husband!

remy’s 2nd birthday photography

This year, Remy’s birthday party didn’t go as planned. I had initially booked a room at a local play centre and had invited all of our family members that live near us. As her birthday drew closer, more and more of our family were unable to make it. This included my husband! With less than two weeks to go, I had no choice but to cancel everything. Instead, we ended up having about four mini parties with various family members on the days that worked for them. It was a week of sheer exhaustion (given that no one actually lives in the city), but we made it! Remy is so loved, which makes me so happy.

For our own intimate celebration with just the three of us, I decided to do a Morning in the Life where I photographed our daily ritual at home. It began with Remy’s bath. Next, we played in our master bedroom. Then Geoffrey and I sat with her while she ate her late morning snack, we opened birthday presents, and then we sat on the couch and played with some of her new toys.

Even though two rooms in our house are under renovations, I wanted to document exactly how we spent even just part of our day at this moment in our lives. From the gentle light of the morning sun in our bathroom, to Remy playing with her toys on our bed, to the length of her beautiful hair, to the shortness of mine, to Geoff’s clothes, I feel as if I have to capture it all. Our home is almost exactly how we would like it- which means that we are probably getting ready to sell it. But, all of this is what makes us unique. This is our life with a now two-year-old.

What sorts of things do you wish to never forget? Good or bad, let me know below.

remy is two

Remy is officially two years old today. Where did the time go? I have so much to say about my little goose, and yet, I can’t quite sum it all up!

So, I created a video that shows the previous twelve months of her life, and all of the fun we had.

You can also relive her eleven month photos that were taken on the same bed, one year ago.

I want to bottle up her sweetness and love for the outdoors and keep it forever. Happy birthday, darling.

xoxo
