20 weeks

First of all, thank you all so much for all of your kind words on my pregnancy reveal post! You guys are seriously the best. :-))) And now I’m at the mid point of my pregnancy!

So much has happened between weeks 18 and 20. For instance:

baby can now hear our voices
– it has finger and toe prints
– its legs are finally in proportion with its body
– it is covered in vernix
– it can now open its eyes
– I felt its first kicks

This is our babe at my 12 weeks ultrasound appointment. I explained on Instagram that seeing his/her movements and beating heart was just so emotional. With our second baby, I had two ultrasounds. At 6 weeks, it had a slow heartbeat. At 8 weeks, there was none. I specifically waited until I was further along to even book an appointment with this baby, just in case I lost another one. During the appointment, he/she was waving at us on the screen, so I took it as a sign that it was doing fantastic and everything would be OK!

Feel free to revisit my 20 week update with Remy.

Have a lovely weekend, all!

mother’s day

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
– Sophia Loren

Friends, I am stopping in a bit early to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day!

Remy is the light in my life. She is the greatest blessing that I have ever known, and she makes life worth living. I love our family more than anything, Rowen and future children included. Being a mother takes top priority. Hardships aside, this is the life that I was meant to lead.

Whether you’re a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter, pet mom, or female in general, you deserve to be celebrated! I hope that you all enjoy your weekend!

“We are born of love. Love is our Mother.”
-Rumi

on the university grounds

I had the pleasure of spending a small portion of the evening with this family a few weeks ago. Based on my text messages with the mother beforehand, I had a strong feeling that they would be easy and fun. I wasn’t disappointed! We spent nearly an hour running around the grounds of the university. It was a warm, fall day, and the sun and the clouds were nearly perfect. I was largely inspired by this Alaskan photographer that night, and my pictures reflect her moody images that she is known for.

books remy loves: sophie la girafe

Like most children, Remy absolutely loves books. More so than most of her toys. If I’m not reading to her, she’ll often be found in front of her bookshelf, pulling out all of her books, and flipping through the pages of her favourite ones. It’s adorable.

Some of Remy’s most cherished books are Sophie la Girafe board books. Her first one was Sophie’s Big Noisy Day Book. With twelve pages, lift-the-flaps, and five sounds, this book is extremely fun for young children.

Next, I bought Sophie’s Busy Day. It’s much smaller and doesn’t have the same features of her other book. It is a touch and feel book though, and is interactive on another level. She loves it just as much as Noisy Day.

I think that as long as a book has colourful pages and is filled with animals, Remy will love it. It has been that way since she was two months old. She’s a creature of habit!

Please check out Sophie la Girafe books for your young ones if you haven’t already. I almost guarantee that they’ll be a hit.

fin & vince

fin-vince-13One night a few months ago, Remy was up with the flu. Too worried to sleep, I laid beside her awake for most of the night. To pass the time, I was looking up children’s clothing companies on Instagram. Even though it was a horrible night, I ended up coming across the most beautiful company that makes clothes for kids. They are are called Fin & Vince.

fin-vince-15Fin & Vince’s slogan is “kidswear for the imaginative.” I just love that. To me, the pieces are retro-inspired but wholly practical. The fabrics are soft and the designs are unique. I also love that most of the pieces can be worn for either boys or girls. I don’t like dressing Remy in overly girlie clothes, and I often shop in the boy section for her pieces. This is where the gender-neutral items are.

fin-vince-12I just adore the look of rompers. I often wear them, and I love how they look on Remy. I prefer them over dresses, mostly due to mobility reasons. While dresses are lovely, they are not practical when it comes to crawling. They often get tangled under her knees, restricting her forward movements. I end up having to tuck them into her tights. With rompers, there’s no worry about the fabric becoming tangled. You also don’t have to worry about tights, or pairing a top with bottoms. It’s all one piece. They’re perfect.

fin-vince-14I bought Remy the Stork Romper because I liked the pattern. The pockets are a great feature as well.

fin-vince-11I purchased the Striped Baby Romper for her because of the pattern. Look at it. Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?

fin-vince-10I think that from now on, I will always order from Fin & Vince. However, it will only be a few items at a time due to their prices. It’s a little expensive, but it’s so worth it!
