instagram in january

Since this is the first month of 2018, I wanted to make sure that I am up-to-date with my fellow Instagrammers!

I adore the people and connections that I have made through Instagram. I personally feel as if it’s a great community to reach out to others who share similar interests or lifestyles. In my case, that would namely be mamas. I’ve went beyond being social media friends with many of them, and have exchanged phone numbers, addresses, gifts, and more! I used to post daily (who has time for that anymore), but have gone to only posting about twice a week. However, I am more frequent in my stories.

Here are some of my photos this month:

New tattoos.

Church bound, although I’m not sure where Remy is going.

Monkey jumping on the bed.

Happy birthday, dear husband.

January details.

Viewing acreages for sale.

Some stories:

1st birthday: video

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI am amazed that my darling Remy will be celebrating her birthday in just two days. Although I have been preparing for her party for over a month, to have a one year old is shocking. 

This last year was by far the best year of my life. My life only truly began once I had my daughter. Before her, I think that I was lost. Now I have a purpose.

Remy is an intelligent, independent, and serious little girl. She loves to talk and eat. She adores books, animals, and being outdoors. She has two teeth, can say four words, mirrors every sound we make, is learning sign language, crawls, and is so close to walking on her own. She looks like her daddy but has my personality. She and I just get one another. 

This last year was not always easy. From acid reflux, to work and school, to all of our family residing in another city or province, to living in three different houses. Yet, the fact that we always had a little face smiling up at us seemed to make every challenge almost or completely bearable. I tried hard to cherish every moment of every day with Remy, and in the end, I very nearly did.

Thank you for joining me in my pregnancy and baby journey. I will always be grateful for our little girl and how she made me a mother. I hope that you enjoy this video that I made, and will continue to follow along for the second year of her life. You guys are honestly so amazing!

9 months

9-months-oldRemy is officially nine months old today. Her biggest milestone this month is that she now walks while holding our hands. She also showing major signs of teething again, so hopefully this month she will get her first tooth! Girl is slow in her teething game.

I’ve also included a video of her playing her favourite game with me. At the end, she is showing off another one of her latest tricks. She belongs in a circus.

Have a wonderful weekend.

(nearly) 9 months in, (nearly) 9 months out

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI often see posts of mothers celebrating the 9 month anniversary of their baby being earthside- or, however long they carried their them in their womb. I think that it’s such a beautiful commemoration, and is one that I had always planned on taking part of.

Remy was born 8 days before her due date. That means that Nov. 17 would’ve been our little anniversary of her being outside of my womb for the same amount of time that she was in it. That feels so surreal to me. Above is a photo of her and I on the 17th. Below is a photo of her when she was only 8 days old. I can’t believe how much she’s grown.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetIn just a few days, we’ll be celebrating her 9 month birthday. Let the tears start rolling now.
